About the Property

Farmhouse, 3 Bdrms + Sunroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-10 adults) + young children N/C

There are many different aspects to this beautiful place in Sebastopol, West Sonoma County, California and we encourage you to visit our website and Facebook page for greater detail and an abundance of pictures. Below, we will tell you about the house, the organic gardens, the animals, and this unique experience that awaits you at the farm.

First and foremost, it is a 23-acre mostly wild land. We have invited the wildlife to be at home here and for that reason you will often be able to see deer, raccoon, bobcat, and fox. Playing in the air currents above the land on a daily basis are the graceful turkey vultures, chatty red-shoulder hawks, and reserved, confident, red-tail hawks. All visitors are welcome to enjoy the private walking trails that wind through the forest, oak groves, and meadows on the property.

There are three turn-key vacation rentals, well placed at the top of the property for gorgeous sunset views. The 3-bedroom home, we call it the Retreat House, is surrounded with lush landscape, including a small waterfall and fish pond that can be heard from the wisteria-covered patio and from the kitchen, as well as two of the bedrooms. The hot tub is right outside the slider leading onto a roomy deck with great westward views.

Inside the Retreat House there are eight comfortable beds (three queens, one double, and four twins) easily sleeping up to twelve people. The kitchen is fully equipped and there are three dining areas from which to choose, two inside and one outside. We offer wireless high-speed Internet connection and the choice of many beautiful places to sit with your laptop. In the living room and master bedroom there are bookshelves filled with interesting books and magazines. To further entertain you, there is large 55" flat screen HDTV with streaming access for endless movies and music.. There are children's books, puzzles, and board games provided, too.

Upon arrival you will drive down your private drive and find the key waiting for you. Inside you will find a bowl of fresh organic eggs from our own hens, locally baked organic bread, coffee, tea, butter, and jam--all organic.

Throughout the year, you are welcome to stroll through our organically grown garden to pick fresh fruits and vegetable for your meals. During the summer you can find tomatoes, squash, green beans, cucumbers, raspberries, and more. In the winter there are a variety of veggies like lettuce, kale, spinach, broccoli, and always an array of herbs and edible flowers. The best of Sonoma County awaits you here!

If it is a farm experience you desire, come and learn about the chickens, goats, and horses. You can even assist us while we care for the animals. Tours are available for small and large groups and YOU are offered a complimentary tour while here. You can learn about micro-farming, organic foods, and sustainable living. There are picnic facilities if you are planning just a visit for the day, rather than an overnight stay.

One of the most attractive activities here at Full House Farm revolves around the horses, whether you are just visiting or would like to become a regular student. Harmony With Horses is designed to invite you to learn horses communicate with each other and how applicable that is to our own relationships, with the horses being the real teachers and Life-Coach, Christine Cole, skillfully guiding students. There are mentoring programs for kids and inspiring, life-changing programs for adults. This is not your ordinary horseback riding experience, but rather a journey into the language of the horse. Christine's 40+ years of coaching is a rare find, unique in its depth and insight.

So, whether you are seeking an outing with your family, a special vacation, or an experience with horses that matches no other, there is something here for you.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1989

About the owner: Dave and Christine have been hosting guests since 1999 on their 23 acre farm and wild land in west Sonoma County, California. They are dedicated to their animals and gardens and have opened their farm to the public through vacation rentals and tours for others to have the opportunity to learn about organic foods, compassionate community living, and sustainable choices.

Why the Owner Chose Sebastopol, CA, USA:
This is a special place with a healthy mix of wild and domestic living harmoniously and respectfully together. It is close enough to the many enticing aspects of Sonoma County that draws thousands of tourist every year, yet tucked in to the hills in such a way as to feel privacy and peace. The best of both worlds.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
Full House Farm is unique in the opportunity to stay on a real farm, where gardens and animals sustain us, and you are welcome to partake and learn. The level of your interest dictates how involved you wish to be. You can harvest organic veggies for your meals or purchase delicious goat milk and other dairy products such as chevre, yogurt, kefir, lavender raspberry panna cotta (cream custard), blueberry cheesecake, and ice cream all made on the premises. You can insert yourself into the farm schedule, helping with chores like feeding and cleaning up after the animals, weeding in the garden, or performing simple maintenance. You can just bask in the peace or be actively involved. It is up to you.
