About Joelle Prather

The property is owned and operated by Richard and Joelle Prather. A portion of the fruit grown in the vineyards each year is used for our own winery, Occidental Road Cellars.

Our goal is to grow and produce the finest ultra premium wine possible, from lands farmed by our family for four generations. The vineyard site is a rolling ridge with a southern aspect and spectacular views of the hills beyond. The moderate climate allows for fruit maturity with exceptional depth and balance. Occidental Road has always been the egress for our bounty, and always our way home.

Joelle Prather purchased this house in 1913

Nice Home in the vines

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here over Labor Day weekend. It's a nice, large, clean home capable of accommodating several couples or a large family. It has a large kitchen and dining area that leads to the covered deck and open patio. The house backyard overlooks their vineyard and rolling hills of Sonoma. It's very secluded and quiet, yet sits very close to either Occidental or Sebastapol for groceries and restaurants. The owners are very accommodating if needed. We look forward to a return stay.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked in we knew we found the perfect place! The views are stunning, the house was immaculate and very large. At night when the fog rolls in it feels like you are floating! We had wildlife come through which was so nice. We highly recommend this place. It is close to wineries and stores but secluded so we felt we were the only people around. Thank you for helping to make our anniversary perfect!

Magical Weekend Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was a spectacular rental. The views alone are worth renting this place for a getaway. Then you add the surround sound built in speakers, the very useful and large kitchen, huge living quarters, nice bathrooms, and your realize there's still more to enjoy! The owners were helpful, kind, and communicative. We will be back for sure!

Perfect vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for us (5 adults & 2 little ones) - it is even better than the photos! Private & peaceful with beautiful views. Spacious, well equipped kitchen - comfy living room (bigger than photos look). Nice bedrooms - great sheets. 3 minute drive into charming Occidental, or about 10 minutes into Sebastapol. We were very pleased and highly recommend this home.
