This home was built in 1927 by my Great Grandparents. Its old fashion charm and beautiful views of the pond and vineyards make this home ready for you to relax. Picnic under the shade of the walnut trees and watch the wildlife in the pond.
You will be staying on a working vineyard and winery, so there is much to experience throughout the year.
We are happy to have you come spend some time on our ranch!

I am a mother of four, married for twenty five years. My favorite hobby is gardening. I grew up on the ranch, working alongside my family.
Maria Martinson purchased this farmhouse in 2009
This house has been in my family since it was built in 1927. It is one of the original homes in Calpella. The barn on the property is a walk in the past of how the original vineyards were cared for, with horse and plows. My grandfather's work station is just how he left it. We love to share the memories.
You will enjoy the view of the pond and vineyards surrounding the home. You will also enjoy staying in this original farmhouse with its authentic furnishings, claw foot bath tub, and walk in pantry. You can sit and relax under the shade of the walnut trees, go fishing or join in as we care for the vineyards and make our wine!
Awesome place, serene, peaceful. Maria her husband and everyone working there is super friendly and welcoming. We really really enjoyed our stay. Great place for relaxing and having time with the family.
The Testa cottage is very cute and comfy and Maria is very friendly and helpful. I booked it for a group of friends to stay there for my daughter's wedding at Yokayo Ranch. The only thing that I do have an issue with is the fact that the 2nd bathroom is a bit of a walk across from the cottage behind the tasting room and I wish that had been described properly in the write up. Eventhough my friends did not complain about this, I feel it was a bit uncomfortable for them. Perhaps Maria should move the laundry facility to behind the tasting room and have that 2nd bathroom right inside Testa cottage. Other than that, the property is very nice.
A very beautiful and charming place. Would definitely stay there again and recommend others to do so. Maria was very easy to communicate with from the start. She answered my emails very promptly and as soon as we arrived she warmly welcomed us. All the rooms were lovely and there was no complaints from any one of my 7 family members including myself. We enjoyed the complimentary wine bottles and was even thrilled that there was wine tasting on the site! We purchased several bottles and was given a hefty discount for being guests! The property offered an amazing view, it was such a nice and relaxing change from the big city. We wished we could've stayed longer than just the weekend. If you're looking for a getaway I highly recommend this place! Thank you Maria for making our stay memorable.
We had an amazing stay at Testa, would highly recommend to anyone visiting the area.
Thank you Maria for everything. I loved getting up in the morning and sitting on the porch with my coffee and looking out into that valley that I love. It was simply beautiful and everything was wonderful, the fresh picked flowers in every room, the lavender in the wash clothes in the bathroom, the farm fresh eggs that you left me, everything was wonderful. My kids and Moose felt very welcomed.
