About Mark Berry

Partners Mark Berry & Rob Akins moved from San Diego to Forestville and bought an old apple farm to fulfill their dream of growing olives and making olive oil. Inspired by the beauty of Sonoma County, Mark & Rob have planted out their two acres of heaven with ornamental and vegetable gardens, hidden walk ways, fruit orchards, olive groves and open meadows to delight the eye and stimulate the senses.

Mark Berry purchased this cottage in 2002

An amazing, romantic, relaxing home

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing experience. The home was beautiful. A perfect stay for a romantic get away in wine country. Unfortunately, we were evacuated within 36 hrs of our stay due to the horrible wildfires that ravaged sonoma/napa. Mark was an amazing host and communicated immediately the risk. He volunteered reimbursement for the 5 nights out of the 7 we could not stay. An amazing property. An amazing host. We will definitely return.

Style meets substance in Sonoma

  • 5 of 5

This very well designed studio is as comfortable as you can get. Plenty of closet space, great lighting, sound system and the TV is simple to operate. The Property is beautiful and well maintained. Location wise, it is central to most of western-central Sonoma County.

I liked it so much I came back for another six day stay!

Nestle in-in this beautifully designed carriage house.

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay at the Carriage House! It is beautifully decorated and they have thought of everything you would want or need in this space. It's very romantic- from the views, to the fireplace, to the candles, and the surround sound music. We loved the wineries nearby, and the gourmet restaurants in the small towns. We loved coming back after a long day to relax with wine and watch a movie, take a dip in the pool, or enjoy the view. We cannot wait to come back. Mark was a very generous host and incredibly accommodating. You can trust that this property is high class!

Amazing Adventure in Wine County!

  • 5 of 5

The Carriage House was a relaxing, comfortable experience. My friend and I shared the house. It was perfect for the coffee on the deck, to happy hour in the Olive Grove orchard. The pool was perfect! Mark is a great host and very attentive to your needs. We are trying to figure out when we can return. Located in wine country which was perfect. I would highly recommend to anyone!
