Beyond perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The best description I can think of for this home and property is a "little piece of heaven." Panoramic views of the mountains and valley, air balloon watching in the morning and total peace and beauty!

Absolutely amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Wine Country Escape. We had 6 couples staying at the house for a weekend of wine tasting. Once we arrived it was hard to leave the property. We enjoyed cooking each night from the dream kitchen while listening to music from the Sonos system and of course the hot tub, pool, sauna, and steam room! Amazing! There was plenty of privacy for a large group with each couple having their own bedroom with attached bathroom. Melanie was amazing and so helpful with all our questions and great recommendations. We will definitely be back!

No words can describe......

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked through the door our adventure was perfect. We were a family celebrating a birthday. The views are spectacular, the property well stocked and maintained. We stayed at the house a lot more than was originally planned because there was no reason to leave. We utilized every area of the house and grounds, form the Bocce court to the steam room. It made for a very relaxing vacation. Melanie was amazing and her initial walkthrough was so helpful and informative about the running of the house. She was always just a quick call away when we needed something. In short, we created the most incredible memories here and can’t wait to come back again.

This house is simply amazing. The views. The outdoor living. The sounds system. The SPA. Words and photos do not do it justice. We stayed with a group of 10 in late April 2018. I will for sure be back. Melanie is also super accommodating. Just an all around wonderful experience!!!

special place

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at wine country escape. Surpassed our (high!) expectations! The house has everything and the views are breathtaking. The house has everything you need and then some. It was hard to justify leaving the property to visit wineries!!! You wont be disappointed. The pictures don't do it justice. We celebrated my parents birthdays - 3 of my siblings, significant others and 3 young children. Melanie was very accommodating. We can't wait to come back again!!

The Escape is located on a hilltop with sweeping views of Sonoma County. The home is surrounded by Vineyards, rolling hills, and a beautiful natural landscape.

Take a Tour of the McCoy Vineyard (our fabulous neighbor Chuck McCoy), and enjoy a private wine tasting of his label, Volante, at the Villa.

A beautiful place to walk and explore the country.
