Property description

Why stay in a hotel or bed and breakfast, when you can unwind at Sonoma Farmhouse Town, a private, luxury Sonoma vacation rental property, right in the heart of California wine country? Situated just two blocks from the historic town square of Sonoma in the Sonoma Valley, this romantic 1890's Sonoma Farmhouse and cottage has been renovated, to provide the comforts of home in a wine country rental getaway.

Nearly one-half acre of the house's original property remains, providing visitors with charming gardens, outdoor entertaining spaces, a luxury spa, a boutique vineyard, and the farm's original water tankhouse. Simply a beautiful vacation boutique getaway right in the heart of the Sonoma Valley! The property offers a remodeled two bedroom farmhouse that accommodates 4 adults and an adjoining guest cottage which sleeps two additional adults. All this included in one price.

Just a quick walk to shops, museums, historic sites and world-class restaurants, you can spend each day at your own pace. Art and antique window shopping, spa massages, superb food and wine, are all only blocks away from this unique property.

Centrally located in the heart of the California wine country, within easy reach of the Sonoma Valley, Napa Valley, the vineyards of Santa Rosa, Healdsburg, and the Russian River, and even the bustle and excitement of San Francisco, this lovely and charming farmhouse can be your home base for a fantastic, relaxed, and authentic California experience.

Bob McDonald Owner and Manager

Why the Owner Chose Sonoma, CA, USA:
Why drive when you can walk to everything the Historic Sonoma Plaza has to offer? You are steps from local award winning restaurants, fabulous tasting rooms, intimate taverns and bars, our local theatre and Federally/State recognized historic and cultural resources such as the Sonoma Mission, General Vallejo's House and Museum. Don't forget our local bike shop is situated around the corner and visitors have access to miles of bike trails, and scenic roads approximate to award wining wineries. The property and home offers both a main two-bedroom two-bath home for groups but also provides a detached guest cottage for couples who want to visit friends but have private and distinctive sleeping quarters.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
Where can you find a charming 1890's victorian bungalow on 1/2 acre of land with a vineyard, tank house, separate cottage, and 2 blocks from Sonoma Plaza? Did I mention the gorgeous and expansive gardens and privacy? Oh yes...what about that deck that overlooks your own private vineyard? Did I mention the downtown location?
