Property description

Why stay in a hotel or bed and breakfast when you can unwind at Sonoma Farmhouse Ranch, a private, luxury Sonoma vacation rental property, right in the heart of California wine country? Situated just a short two block walk from the historic Sonoma Plaza, this recently renovated mid-century classic California Ranch home provides the comforts of a cozy and private wine country retreat and getaway.

The home is situated on one half acre of land, providing visitors with charming gardens, expansive outdoor entertaining spaces and a new 15' x 35' inground salt water pool with solar heating, volleyball net and automatic cover.

The renovated ranch-styled home offers an open great room entertainment area with living, dining, kitchen island and cook area with large flat screen tv. The home can accommodate up to 4 persons and offers two master bedrooms with generous sized en-suite bathrooms, complete with shower/tub combo, vanity and toilet area.

Just a quick walk to shops, museums, historic sites and world-class restaurants, you can spend each day at your own pace, art and antique shopping, enjoying a relaxing massage at one of the local spas, eating superb local foods and wines from one of our local restaurants or town farmer's market, and all within a short 2 block walk from this unique property.

Centrally located in the heart of the California wine country and right off Highway 12, Sonoma Farmhouse Ranch is within easy reach of the Sonoma Valley, Napa Valley, the vineyards of Santa Rosa, Healdsburg, and the Russian River. We are also located within less than a one hour's drive from the bustling night life and excitement of San Francisco. Our Ranch house can be your home base for a fantastic, relaxed and authentic California wine country experience.

For guests staying one week or more guests have access the the laundry room in the owner's private pool house.

The owner's private hot tub is not an advertised feature of the property and remains locked during your stay. The pool is always available for use, but is solar heated, and NOT heated between approximately November 1 through April 1st.
