October 21, 2011 – New York Times, Emily Brady:

“Sonoma County may be best known for its wineries and the tony (sic) towns of Healdsburg and Sonoma, but West County, as locals call the area around Sebastopol, is where the vineyards begin to give way to rolling hills, bohemian enclaves and the wild Pacific Coast beyond. Sure, there’s wine produced here — excellent pinots in particular — but there’s plenty to explore beyond it, especially around Sebastopol, where in recent years new restaurants, shops and live music venues have opened, securing the town’s position as West County’s arts and culture hub.”

National Geographic Traveler - 2012

Sonoma, California

American as Apple Pie

“‘I’ve been to Napa and Sonoma,’ you hear people say, as if they were one and the same. Sure, Sonoma’s 300-plus wineries, like those of vine-centric Napa, offer peak wine tasting, from Ravenswood’s deep Zinfandels to Gloria Ferrer’s sophisticated sparklers. But if you’ve visited only the county’s wineries, come back to sample the astounding diversity that makes Sonoma one of America’s travel treasures.

Spend some time floating in an inner tube down the Russian River and walking amid ancient giants—one over 1,400 years old—at Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve. Poke around the old Russian stockade at Fort Ross, which turns 200 in 2012, or the Spanish adobe mission, San Francisco Solano, in Sonoma town. Hunt for antiques along Petaluma’s downtown Victorian row, and dine on seasonal sake-steamed, aged abalone at Michelin-starred Cyrus in Healdsburg. And don’t miss a flaky, fruit-packed slice of Gravenstein pie from Mom’s Apple Pie, a roadside stop outside Sebastopol. It ranks up there with a Russian River Valley Pinot Noir as a real taste of Sonoma.”

Wonderful Lodge very clean and welcoming

  • 5 of 5

We totally enjoyed our stay at Wineberry. Heidi was wonderful at making sure we had everything we needed. The lodge was extremely clean and well stocked. The pizza oven was an extra fun thing to do in the beautiful outdoor kitchen. It was just a 10 minute drive to spend the day canoeing on the Russian River!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We have had an amazing three days here. The place is centrally located near everything you would want to do in this part of the wine country. Easy access to Sebastapol, Wineries, Bodega Bay, etc. The house is fantastic and is well stocked with everything a family needs for a retreat. And the outdoor kitchen is amazing! We'll be back for sure.

Beautiful Lodge, Hated to Leave

  • 5 of 5

This is my second time staying at Wineberry Lodge. It is in a beautiful setting and everything you need (other than your food and clothing) is there, including soft bathrobes in the bedroom closets. Plenty of towels and space to more around in. The grounds are lovely. This place has an amazing outdoor kitchen with granite counters, stove, sink and a wood fire pizza oven. There is even pizza flour in the kitchen for making your own pizzas. Oh and lets not forget the hot tub under the stars.

It's the perfect place to relax and get away from it all. Wineries are just minutes away. Andy's market is just down the road and offers local produce and sundry items. I always hate leaving such a well loved and cared for place. Heidi, the owner, is just wonderful.

Beautiful and welcoming!

  • 5 of 5

We took a family vacation, ages 18 to 88 and rented both the Lodge and Cottage. Brent and Heidi are amazing hosts and have created a beautiful and welcoming environment. They take great pride in their property and homes and it shines through with all of their special touches: welcoming notes, fruit bowl and wine. We had so much fun cooking and spending time in the outdoor kitchen cooking on the outdoor wood burning oven and enjoying the views of the vineyards. The Lodge floor plan was setup perfectly for our 88 year old Mom..a bedroom on the main floor with an adjoining bathroom with a walk-in shower and access to the deck and outdoor area from the bedroom. The indoor and outdoor kitchens are fully stocked with the best appliances, knives and anything you need to prepare a meal. We also enjoyed the outdoor shower and jacuzzi. All of the beds and linens were very comfortable and both homes were immaculate. The Cottage is in walking distance past the waterfall and beautiful pine trees and served as extension lodging for our family for our daughter and her husband and niece. Our only regret was that we could not stay longer!

Lucky us!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at the Wineberry Lodge while attending a reunion in the area and it was the perfect place to return to catch our breath and sleep after two busy days out and about in Sonoma. Wish we could have spent more time on the lovely property - particularly to take advantage of the state-of-the-art outdoor kitchen. The home was well equipped and much larger than we expected. We could spread out and then gather in the great room/kitchen area to socialize. Favorite corner to daydream - the porch swing. Central location near much to do.
