Great home!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for 4 couples. It was very clean, comfortable and had a beautiful, private backyard. The owners were available to help if needed, but were unnoticed in their home adjacent to this property. We will definitely stay here again when visiting wine country!

Amazing house with a wonderful pool backyard in the tranquil forest!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of the house don't do it justice! This is a beautiful property--extremely clean, well-stocked, and tranqui! We had the most incredible weekend celebrating a family birthday. This house slept 9 people comfortably. There are four en-suites, plus a huge downstairs with lots of family gathering places. Ann and Norm--what a gem of a property you have and thank you for sharing it with us!

Great property that completely exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

Lovely space that is even larger than the pictures seem to indicate. The bedrooms are particularly large, the kitchen is a very inviting space to congregate, and the pool and outdoor area is beautiful and fun.

Beautiful!! Highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Clara's country estate! There were 8 of us and we had plenty of room and all of the bedrooms were large and beautiful! We spent a lot of time in the amazing backyard by the pool/spa and the scenery was so pretty. There was jasmine growing and big redwood trees and the smell outside was heavenly. If we were not by the pool then we were hanging out in the spacious kitchen which easily fit us all. Wineries were also close by! We loved our stay here and highly recommend it! Thank you Ann and Norm!!

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.
