Clara's Country estate was amazing!

The photos didn't the house justice.

There was MORE than enough space for our 10 woman crew.

Perfect for a get-away, perfect for a family trip

Over the top!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 4 couples (50+). Upon entry into this home, we were breathless. Throughout our stay, the attention to detail was consistently evident in this home. Each couple had their own bedroom and bathroom. This was a pre-requisite for me. We drew names upon our arrival as to who would get which room. My husband drew "the Master". It was breathtaking. I felt like we were in our own private suite. The bedroom was extremely large with a beautiful bow window nook overlooking the pool and backyard. We had a balcony off the bedroom. The bed, linens, etc. were crisp and clean. The bed was very comfortable. If that wasn't enough, the room just kept going! We had an enormous walk-in/walk-through closet that had more cabinets than we could have filled. The bathroom was very large and immaculate! The ceramic tile, double sink vanity and walk-in shower was gorgeous! Last but not least, there was yet but another "sitting room" off the walk-in/walk-through closet! The rest of the home was just as impressive. The kitchen left nothing for us to need. The dishes, pots and pans, etc. exceeded our expectations. They were impressive and of very good quality. Nothing was spared in going the extra mile in this home. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool and hot tub most evenings. In addition, the grounds were very secluded and quiet! I would be remiss if I didn't end with mentioning that this home was immaculately CLEAN! I loved this home. It was perfect for our group of 4. When we each retreated to our own rooms, it was like no one else was there. I would definitely recommend this rental home. I have absolutely no complaints! The homeowners were extremely kind and, while they lived on the property, you would never have known they were there. It was a reassurance that they were in case we needed anything. Thank you Ann and Norm for opening your beautiful home!

Great place to relax and enjoy wine country. Each room was spacious and comfortable. I went with 3 other couples and had plenty of privacy. The backyard is amazing and comfortable. The owners were very helpful. I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Sonoma.

The property is located in the Glen Ellen region of Sonoma Valley wine country. Wineries, tasting rooms, and vineyards abound here. This valley is also called The Valley of the Moon, which you will understand if you are lucky enough to visit when the moon is full. This valley is also very historic, with its mission, Bear Flag Monument (site of the first raising of the California Bear Flag in Sonoma Plaza), and famous author Jack London's Beauty Ranch in Glen Ellen. Jack London State Park is just a few miles from the property and well worth a visit for the interesting museum, ruins of the Wolf House, Pig Palace, hiking trails, etc.
