About the Property
House, 5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 10)
The Vineyard Perch is a tastefully decorated home that is at once both large and cozy. Strategically placed on a stunning perch overlooking the vineyards of the Alexander Valley and the hillsides of Sonoma, the home is reminiscent of a country estate and comes complete with all the amenities to make your vacation getaway special. With the seasonal creek that runs through the property and feeds into the Russian River, the 8-acre parcel and its surrounding area couldn't be more perfect. 90 miles north of San Francisco and just 10 miles from Healdsburg's square, the Perch is located in the best part of Sonoma County in a little town called Geyserville. Surrounded by beautiful, serene mountain views, you are able to enjoy an escape that includes all manner of nature, including bald eagles / hawks / osprey circling overhead, horses in neighboring pastures, and foxes and wild turkeys traversing the property.
And, there is plenty of space to get away.
If you ever decide to leave the comfort of the Perch, there is something for everyone to do.
- For the wine aficionado there are an unbelievable number of great wineries within 10-12 miles that touch on all aspects: great boutique wineries (Robert Young, Hawkes), fun wineries (Meeker, Francis Ford Coppola, Unti), Zin'o'philes (Rafanelli, Ridge, Pasalaqua, Bella), Cab fans (Silver Oak, Hanna, Lancaster), Pinot (Ferrari Carano, Dutcher Crossing, Michel Schlumber), and Chardonnay (Stonestreet, Ferrari Carano, Quivera).
- For the foodies, there are all types in the spectrum from the casual to the fine dining: Dry Creek Kitchen, John Ash on the formal side, to some of our local favorites including Catelli's and Diavola in town (Geyserville), and Rustic on campus at Francis Ford Coppola.
- For the active / outdoor members of your group, we are adjacent to miles of hiking, biking, horseback riding paths, and all types of boating at Lake Sonoma.
This special property is conveniently located off highway 101 and yet feels as though it is a world away.

This property sits on a ridge strategically located to provide views from every room in the house, even the bathrooms. Out the front of the house, the rooms all have inspirational views of the classic Sonoma hillsides. The views out the back of the house are truly majestic as they provide sweeping vistas of the Mill Creek feeding into the Russian River through the vineyards of the Alexander Valley. The sunset over the ridge-lines of the Sonoma county hills is something you will never forget. ...moreless

About the owner: We are a family that love the outdoors. We love getting away to the Perch and hiking, bike riding or swimming We love to cook and entertain and to have friends / family join us on our getaways. Also, we enjoy exploring the local restaurants, which has yielded some new favorites like Catelli's (absolutely amazing Italian food) and Diavola (crazy good pizza and salumi).
The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Very close to the great restaurants in Geyserville and Healdsburg and the wineries in the Dry Creek and Alexander Valleys. Even though you are within a 15 minute drive to most restaurants/wineries you feel like you are a million miles away from the hustle bustle. A true relaxing time away.
