                                                                      Leah K.

                                                                      We had a lovely stay here for my friend's bachelorette. The pool was delightful, and the home itself is beautiful, both in layout and decoration. The house is also well-appointed, with every supply you could think of, and nice and clean. The French doors leading out onto the deck made for beautiful views. We didn't want to leave!

                                                                      Top Notch

                                                                      Katy C.

                                                                      I stayed here with some girlfriends for a weekend getaway and loved staying at this house. The home is beautifully decorated with a clean yet vintagey feel. The kitchen is perfect for cooking while chatting with your friends. I slept on the pullout couch and found it very comfortable. The deck has a gorgeous view of the hills as well as the lovely pool (the pictures don't do it justice). Barry was very professional and helpful. I hope to stay here again.

                                                                      Surpassed all expectations!

                                                                      Shannon F.

                                                                      I have stayed in VRBO homes all over the US and Europe, and I have to say the Gatehouse was far and away the best experience I have had! Barry was extremely professional and helpful, the house was immaculate and had every amenity imaginable. My group was five girlfriends celebrating our 50th birthdays, and we had an absolute blast! Several of us are cooks, we brought tons of food, the refrigerator and freezer were huge, the gas stove and grill were fantastic, tons of cookware, we wanted for nothing! The highlight was the amazing pool and jacuzzi and the close proximity to everything wine country has to offer. We plan on booking again for next year!!

                                                                      Gorgeous, spacious, quiet, and great pool!

                                                                      David P.Oakland, CA

                                                                      The Gatehouse is a lovely place to call home while visiting in Glen Ellen/Sonoma County. Walking distance to downtown Glen Ellen, yet far away from the main road so you have peace and quiet.

                                                                      Very comfortable beds, the master bathroom is modern and spacious. If you're a foodie, the kitchen is for you - very large and accommodating for making a fantastic meal. The pool and spa in the backyard are incredible, including the stunning views of Jack London State Park. This house has everything you and your guests need to have a comfortable stay.

                                                                      I would definitely stay in this house again and highly recommend you consider this rental.

                                                                      Barry was very professional, communicative, and walked me through questions so we felt right at home for the weekend. Thank you, we had a wonderful time!

                                                                      An oasis in Glen Ellen

                                                                      Tony P.

                                                                      One of the most positive VRBO experiences we have ever had. The home is nicely appointed with antiques, comfortable beds (as reported by all guests) and an impressive kitchen. The home is well laid out and spacious offering all of us ample room for reading/relaxing. The pool and decking area offer great post-winery tour relaxation. The back yard is very private and provide an impressive view flanked by 4 substantial redwoods. Glen Ellen makes for an excellent jump off point for wine country and has good restaurant selections and grocery store. We highly recommend this property and will definitely return for our next visit.

                                                                      Bachelor Party Paradis

                                                                      Rachel S.Oakland

The house was clean and has ample space for everyone. The kitchen was fantastic! The stand out was the amazing backyard and pool. We were able to relax and soak in the sun. Hope to come back soon!
