About the Property
House, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 4-8)
As you drive past the olive orchard, and up the hill to our private, 42 acre, custom decorated estate in the heart of wine country, you’ll feel the weight of the world slip from your shoulders and soon become a distant memory.
While the peace and quiet are wonderful, the Lodge is just a short drive to hundreds of world-class wineries, outstanding restaurants, and charming farmer's markets in the upper Napa and Sonoma valleys.
Surrounded by centuries old trees, our property is only 4.5-miles from Calistoga at the north end of the Napa Valley. Wake up to birds chirping and the fog rolling through the Oak and Pine trees. By the time you've made coffee, the sun will be sweeping over to the patio off the kitchen. At night, fall into beds with luxury linens, and look out at the stars. (Guests have actually called to find out where they can order our beds!)
Though the estate offers all the privacy you could want, you also can grab locally roasted coffee and breakfast just minutes away in Calistoga.
Our log house, called “The Lodge” by guests, is custom decorated and features four bedrooms. Three bedrooms are located upstairs with fabulous views - one has a king size bed with a seating area and two bedrooms have queen size beds, one of which has its own bathroom. The fourth bedroom is a studio just off the kitchen. It has a king size bed, its own bathroom, a seating area and a small deck overlooking Franz Creek and the trees, birds and squirrels.
The well-appointed kitchen includes everything you need to prepare a gourmet dinner. Simply shop the local stores or browse one of the charming Farmer’s Markets to find all the fixings and local ingredients. You'll be set to make an intimate dinners or grand meals to celebrate holidays or special occasions with family and friends. Start with appetizers on the patio, or around the pool, and move inside to toast the day with a great feast around our extended dinner table.
Our VRBO home offers peace, tranquility, custom touches, gourmet kitchens…and elbow room…all for the same price as a room in a nice hotel or bed and breakfast. Two night minimum – but be forewarned, you’ll discover that’s not enough time to really explore the Wine Country. Our repeat guests have come to think of the Lodge as the perfect home away from home!
Fly direct to the Charles Schultz Sonoma/Santa Rosa airport from Seattle, Portland, Los Angeles, or Las Vegas on Horizon Air. Walk off the plane, drive 25 minutes to this private, yet very conveniently located, wine country estate, and you'll be ready to start your vacation - unless you decide to go wine tasting along the way.
Alternatively, you may opt to fly into San Francisco, Oakland or Sacramento Airport and drive approximately 2 hours to the property.

Note: Unfortunately, Sonoma County does not permit us to host weddings, parties, events, or other large gatherings at the property. The property is solely for use by up to 8 guests.
