About the Property

Chalet, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Available once again after two years of a long term rental by a Family from Boston. We prefer residences of from 1 to 12 months duration from either private or corporate persons. Contact owners for shorter or longer stays,as rates vary.

Wild Horse is a unique, little known gem of an upland valley just 15 minutes drive east of Old Town Napa and is located at 1000 feet elevation within Solano County . Nearby may be found a plethora of restaurants and some of the finest vineyards in California.

The property is bordered on the west and south by the Vallejo natural reserve, to the east by Wild Horse ranch and to the north by vineyards. This traditional guest house/chalet is quiet, clean,modernized, private and convenient.

The adjoining countryside is rich in wild life and excellent for bird watching,

Located on a forested hillside overlooking Lake Madigan,the Vallejo natural reserve,vineyards,stables and oak covered hillsides to the east. There is an olive grove,three dwellings,a barn and horses on the 20 acres that has been owned by our family for over 50 years.
