Overview

About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

The Cottage at Wright’s Pond is located at the foot of McGuire Peak in the beautiful Callayomi Valley of Middletown, Ca. about 35 minutes from Calistoga. For many years this secluded retreat has been a favorite of the Wright family and friends for BBQs, swimming, and canoeing.

Enjoy the solitude along with the convenience of being within a 10 minute drive to great wineries and excellent restaurants. The scenic drive through Pope Valley to the Napa Valley is about 30 minutes.

While staying at the cabin on Wright’s Pond, you will have full access to the outdoor kitchen, canoe and kayak, walking trails and wonderful nights under the stars.

Hear the bullfrogs croak and the crickets chirp on your 10-step, starlit stroll to the elegant bathroom and shower (for 2!).

About Bill and Gail Wright

Bill and Gail have lived, worked and raised their children in the community of Middletown. They are active in the community and have enjoyed living on their unique property.

Bill and Gail Wright purchased this cottage in 1984

Why Bill and Gail Wright chose North Coast

We are long time residents of the Middletown area. We have lived on these 12 acres since 1986 and have developed our pond area over the years into a wonderful retreat for ourselves, family and friends. We decided to offer this unique experience as a vacation rental in 2010 and have had very positive feedback from our visitors.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage on Wright's Pond is very private. It is located on a secluded part of the property. Quiet, serene, beautiful. Enjoy relaxing by the pond during the warm summer months.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Gail & Bill,

Thank you for you hospitality, your kindness, and your generosity. Staying here was just what I need right now in my life. It was the best combination of break and shake-up I needed.

A very unique accommodation for staying in the area for work!I can't wait to come back so I can play and bring my husband too!

Loved how quiet and private this property was. The two of us loved using the outdoor kitchen and enjoying the nearby wineries.

Nothing disturbs the tranquility of this cabin

  • 5 of 5

We drove in to the private road leading to the cabin and we're greeted happily by Daisy (owners dog). The place was more than enough accommodation for 2 people. The chairs were comfortable and the bed was like my very own. We saw frogs, squirrels and geese which stopped by the pond. We wandered in the wooded area around the property. It was a nice weekend change from the hustle and bustle of the city but still feels like home!

Romantic, private, relaxing with charm

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at Wrights Pond! Starting with the friendliness and welcoming of the host Bill and Gail. The cabin is on an isolated property with access to a pond (fishing, canoeing, and swimming) for your enjoyment. The accommodations are as stated. It was a wonderful place to wake up and have relaxing breakfast. From their we travelled to the red wood forest, the ocean, wineries in Sonoma, napa, and lake county and site seeing at clear lake.

I do recommend taking a robe to go from the master cabin to the restroom as they are not adjoining.

Hopefully our travels will once again take us to Lake County and we will definitely stay in this cabin on Wrights pond!!

July stay

  • 5 of 5

This place is a true refuge--clean, quiet (interrupted only by birds, crickets, and frogs), and private. Bill met us and then we were left to enjoy the pond and grounds on our own. No bottles of wine, resident sheep, or host greetings like other guests have mentioned, but we appreciated the peace above all. We would definitely return.

Peaceful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cabin surrounded by nature and no one else around made the perfect quiet weekend getaway. We thoroughly enjoy the laying out by the pond and getting some sun, cooking in the outdoor kitchen, grilling out, and being completely disconnected from the modern world (no cellphone reception), although the cable and the DVDs were a nice surprise! It's very hot during the summer and the fridge could use some TLC as it doesn't refrigerate that much, but it gets nice at night. Only 30 mins from Wine country, so perfect location. Will most definitely be back!!
