Overview

About the property

3,000 Square Feet of Luxury in a Vineyard Setting. TOT #770N

(Sonoma County TOT Certificate # 770N)

One of the few vacation rental properties within walking distance to so many wineries! Hacienda Sonoma was custom built in 2008 -- professionally designed and beautifully decorated, every detail has been thoughtfully considered with wonderful weekends in mind. Entertaining is easy here, and the location is perfect -- walk to nine wineries (or drive to over 50 wineries within 10 miles), walk to a nice dinner or our local market, and no one has to be the 'D.D.' on vacation. If you're a 'foodie,' this house was designed for you! Every possible amenity is available for entertaining in style, including a wood-fired pizza oven.

Hacienda Sonoma offers a huge professionally-equipped gourmet kitchen, including beautiful serving pieces, 2 dishwashers, and everything you need to entertain stylishly. We also offer luxurious pillow-top mattresses, travertine bathrooms with lots of elbow space, two fireplaces, a bocce court, a pool table and bar, plasma TV, and whole-house sound system. Our gardens are filled with flowers (plus a lavender field behind the house), a zinfandel vineyard, and herb garden. Gorgeous outdoor living / dining / and cooking areas are lit by chandeliers.

A thousand activities close by! Sonoma Valley is full of fun things to do. Whether you're into golf or skydiving, hiking or wine pairings, there's something fun for you in our area.

Girls' weekends are great at Hacienda Sonoma! We can arrange for a private chef and/or massage therapists on site. There is also one of the World's top spas (as rated by Conde Nast magazine) just a couple of minutes down the road, with a gorgeous adults-only pool for your use. The best part about our location in Wine Country? No one has to be the "D.D." There's more than a full weekend of wine-tasting within a 5-block radius of our property. If you'd like to sample some of the more than 50 wineries within a 10-mile radius, let us recommend a great limo service to take you wine-tasting in style!

A foodie/wine-lover's paradise: Sonoma Valley has been rated as one of the top destinations in the world for food and wine, and Hacienda Sonoma was designed to be the perfect environment for enjoying them. Our kitchen is huge and extremely well equipped. When have you rented a vacation home that came with an Italian wood-fired pizza oven, a KitchenAid stand mixer, an emulsion blender, two dishwashers, two coffee pots, built-in grill, electric wine bottle opener, and matching place settings for 20? We love to cook and entertain, and we love to do it in style. Visit the local farmers' markets and be inspired, or, hire our chef to come and cook for a truly memorable occasion.

Fun is everywhere at Hacienda Sonoma! Our bocce court, pool table, whole-house sound system, plasma T.V., upstairs bar, Blu-Ray DVD player, DVR, DirecTV Satellite system, VCR, puzzles, board games, WiFi, and even the redwood play structure in the back yard, means that fun is had by everyone in the group.

About Bridget Henry

I'm a grapegrower, winemaker, mom of two kids, and executive recruiter. My husband, Rick, and I are wine lovers and enjoy 'getting away from it all' but not so much that we have to get in the car and drive a long way to do something fun. We can walk to many of the wineries in our area, some great restaurants, a neighborhood market, and some cute shops. We can walk down the street to live music, food pairings, or barrel tastings on most weekends, and are surrounded by the friendliest people. We love Sonoma Valley!

Bridget Henry purchased this house in 2007

Why Bridget Henry chose Kenwood

We looked for 5 years for the perfect spot to build a custom home. At first, we looked at mountaintop properties with expansive views, but we quickly realized the drive up a winding narrow road would defeat the purpose of buying in Wine Country. We wanted to be near everything fun, enjoy a short stroll to dinner or lunch, or even walk to a wine and food pairing. And yet, we didn't want the traffic and noise of being downtown, and we wanted the gorgeous views of rolling vineyards. Kenwood is our perfect spot! Our friends can visit and no one has to be the 'D.D.' There is a World-Class spa about two minutes down the street, great restaurants, fabulous wineries, golf, and a small-town feel to our area.

What makes this house unique

We are one of the few vacation rental properties so close to the many gorgeous vineyards in our area. You can walk just 2-4 blocks for wine tasting at 7 wineries. One of them offers a 7-course gourmet food pairing for just $25! It's food and wine heaven in our neighborhood. The house is custom-built with lots of fun amenities like a bocce court, pool table, zinfandel vineyard, giant gourmet kitchen, lavender field, two fireplaces, soaking tubs, and more. We gave a lot of thought to every detail (we had 5 years to think about it!), and the house was designed with entertaining in mind.

Easily the nicest vacation home we've ever shared!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at Hacienda Sonoma just as things in Wine Country were beginning to return to some sense of normalcy after the recent fires. Thankfully this little slice of heaven, and the wineries, restaurants, and lovely neighborhood surrounding it, were untouched. The home itself was immaculately clean and welcoming - every little detail thought out to make guests feel pampered, but right at home at the same time. We got to meet Bridget, the owner, in person as she stopped by to harvest the grapes from the wonderful garden during our stay, and it's clear that she and her family care very deeply about their guests having a great experience.

Overall, the vast majority of wineries, vineyards, and businesses in Sonoma and Napa were not directly impacted by the fires. They are ready and eager to welcome folks back to enjoy their beautiful valleys and genuinely friendly hospitality. During our stay, we visited VJB Vineyard & Cellars, had two dinners at Palooza, and stocked up on supplies at Kenwood Market, all within easy walking distance We also did a winery tour with Perata Luxury Tours, which was first-class all the way.

But honestly, the best memories of the whole trip were the moments spent with our family right there in Hacienda Sonoma, and we heartily recommend it to anyone considering a visit to Wine Country!

Owner's Response: Dan, thank you so much for your lovely review. Sonoma Valley is a special place, and we are so thankful that our little area was not damaged by the fires. I'm so glad you weren't deterred and marched on with your plans! I know the wineries, restaurants, and winemakers really appreciate people like you and your family coming to visit. It was so great to meet you all during our grape harvest! We hope you'll be back soon. Cheers! Bridget

Fantastic Fall Sonoma Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Hacienda Sonoma was everything and more that we hoped it would be. An absolutely beautiful home. The grounds, with fruit, herbs, tomatoes and more contributed to our nightly meals - we decided to cook at the Hacienda every night. The convenience of Kenwood to wineries and tastings, the Bodega coast, and the Armstrong Redwoods, made this an amazing week! Bridget's amazing property is more than everything you could imagine for a Sonoma getaway. We were three adult couples from Florida (and can't wait to plan a return trip). Highly, highly recommend Hacienda Sonoma!

Great location to enjoy Sonoma and Napa areas. Home was very well-appointed and very comfortable for three couples. Indoor and outdoor dining areas were more than enough and a lot of time was spent in the sizable kitchen. Outdoor landscaping very well done and had fun on the bocce ball court. Our friends were also pleased with the home, where we spent each night relaxing together after long days at some great wineries and restaurants. I would highly recommend this rental for short or long stays in the area.

The property was spectacular

  • 5 of 5

This house was exactly as advertised. It was clean and well maintained. Bridget was great to work with and responded to all of our questions about the house and the area. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to spend some time in wine country. The town of Kenwood is very cool, but groceries are hard to come by. You will need to drive to near by towns if you want to cook in the chef's kitchen. We had 3 couples in our group which worked out great with the house having 3 bedrooms with comfortable king sized beds.

Owner's Response: Bryan & Lynn, I'm glad you had an amazing time! We have links on our website to all the grocery options nearby, but I think I'll now include that in the pre-arrival info I send our guests. Safeway delivers groceries for free right to our kitchen (our website has the link and the promo code for free delivery), and the Kenwood Market has most of the basics and is 5 blocks away. You do need to go to Sonoma or Santa Rosa for a Whole Foods or to visit Safeway, & those are both 10 minutes in either direction (15 mins for the furthest Whole Foods). The Glen Ellen Market is also a high-end grocery store, and is 8 minutes away. Lastly, I should mention VJB Winery, the Italian Villa-style winery 4 blocks away. They have an amazing deli with everything you could need for appetizers: cheeses, salumi, freshly baked bread, etc., along with salads, panini, wood-fired pizzas, and even tuxedoed opera-singing tenors at lunch on the weekends! So many fun options!

Hacienda Sonoma is within WALKING distance to many of Sonoma Valley's finest wineries, AND WE HAVE BEEN UNAFFECTED BY THE NORTH BAY FIRES. We are just a block and a half from Hwy. 12, (the main winery route through Sonoma Valley) in a sophisticated country setting, but close to everything Wine Country has to offer.

Other Activities: Wineries, garden tours, Bi-plane rides, hot air ballooning, kayaking

Golf: There is lots of golf in our area!
