Farmhouse, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)
Sited on a sunny ridge on over three acres with heirloom apple trees, towering redwoods, and organic gardens, this peaceful, tasteful country retreat is close to Pacific Coast Beaches, wineries, Osmosis spa, and gourmet restaurants.
You'll arrive to find fresh eggs from our chickens; enjoy picking your own vegetables, fruits and herbs in season from our organic gardens.... Relax in a hammock and watch the hawks circle overhead....At night, you may hear owls and coyotes who make their home in the 60 acre forest adjacent to our land; stars twinkle in a truly dark sky.
The vacation rental space features soaring 12' high wooden ceilings, slate floors, original artwork and solid wooden furniture designed by the owner. The spacious living room with wood stove, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom all look out over a sunny patio and redwood glen. The sun-drenched patio overlooking redwoods offers a perfect place for outdoor dining.
West Sonoma County is renowned for its miles of protected Pacific Coast Beaches, Sonoma Wine Country, the Russian River, apple orchards, redwoods, organic family farms and some of the best cycling in California. Our property is minutes from Pacific Coast beaches, gourmet restaurants and wineries. Osmosis Spa and the villages of Freestone and Occidental are right down the road. Great vintage and antique shopping abounds in the many local boutiques.
Home to the husband-and-wife artist team of Wowhaus, the property offers a contemporary artists’ twist on the traditional family farm - a place where growing and making are part of daily life.

We are a husband-and-wife art/design team who work in studios on the property adjacent to the vacation rental; we'll be happy to show you work in progress if time allows.... Scott is an accomplished woodworker and Ene is an avid organic gardener. Ask us about our favorite cycling and hiking routes, wine country day trips, and the many unique nurseries and farms to visit in the region...
Why Owner chose Occidental
We were struck by the friendly, open quality of the West Sonoma County community - avid winemakers and chefs are friends with surfers, ranchers and organic farmers...At night, the quiet, dark sky is filled with stars, a true luxury. Landscape painters and nature photographers seek out this unique landscape for its natural beauty; come visit and you'll understand why.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
West Sonoma County is the undiscovered Wine Country....we love the rolling hills and unspoiled countryside dotted with farms, the redwood forests and Russian River - perfect for cycling and hiking, and all only 10 minutes from Pacific Coast Beaches. Doran Beach, 10 minutes away, is dog friendly and sought out by bird watchers and surfers alike. Osmosis Spa, just down the hill in the village of Freestone, has a beautiful Japanese Garden along with relaxing spa treatments; afterward, stop at Freestone Bakery for fresh-baked wood-fired organic bread. We love sharing our favorite bicycle routes, organic farm tours, and, of course, restaurants and wineries that abound here.

What a lovely quaint stay with a super friendly host
The host was so friendly and welcoming. They made us feel at home. The House was well equipped with cooking supplies and lots of suggestions of activities. I can’t wait to go back.
peaceful, simple, quiet
Perfect. It's quiet, comfortably spacious and with an understated elegance that one rarely finds nowadays. It's hidden back from the road, outside of Sebastopol on a little back-road. Lovely, subtle art and graceful furnishings. There are adorable cats and pretty trees and flowers to stare at from the living room couch. One can read and sit in peace here, and it's well-located for trips all over Sonoma.
Amazing and peaceful
We loved the peace and quiet of your beautiful home. It was a perfect getaway weekend for us!
Thank you for your kind feedback! I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay - it's a pleasure to share our special little corner of California with wonderful guests like you. We hope you can join us again!
Lovely, Relaxing Stay in the Countryside
We absolutely loved our stay at Ene's home. The apartment is very clean, beautifully decorated, and feels private. The location is perfect - it allowed for us to explore Sebastopol, Freestone, and parts of the coast. It's in an area nestled between vineyards, apple orchards, and farms.
Our dogs equally loved the home and grounds.. There was plenty of room on the property to take the dogs for their walks. They also enjoyed laying out on the front porch, sniffing the country air.
Ene was very accomadating and sweet. She brought us delicious cherry tomatoes from the garden, fresh eggs from the chickens, pears, and Gravenstein Apples.
We had such a great time at Wowhaus and plan on returning in the near future!
The ideal 'country life' retreat
Ene and Scott's property is located in the most convenient of locations, allowing easy access to the adorable towns of Sebastopol and Occidental, as well as the beautiful Bodega Bay beaches.
The unit was just right for my husband and I and our 2 German Shepherds (which must be kept on leash at all times on the property). A fully stocked kitchen allowed for easy meal prep, thoroughly enjoying the truly fresh eggs delivered from Ene's hen house. The entire place was spotlessly clean, warm, and cozy.
Situated in the middle of a grove of peaceful redwoods, we are excited to return to the property during the summer in order to better enjoy relaxing outside in the sunny field.
Ene has gathered such helpful knowledge about the area and local excursions, making everything about the weekend completely simple.
I highly recommend making this a home base for your Sonoma County adventures.
This delightful holiday spot was immaculate and beautifully furnished. The hostess was most accommodating. I highly recommend this country home to anyone looking for a quiet getaway.
