The kitchen is a focal point of the residence: six grill range,side/by/side SubZeros,Dacor double ovens,plate warmer, etc. The Outdoor DCS Propane BBQ is a favorite of guests. Generous Sonoma Valley views abound. The entire residence & property showcase valley views overlooking vineyards. Neighborhood wineries and wildlife alone are worth the experience.

Great location and the pool is sooooo refreshing! 06/30/2016

VRBO Bear stayed here:

Our family's stay at Runningwood was truly spectacular. From the views, to the pool, to the fully equipped kitchen, we felt completely taken care of and at home. We spent many evenings on the scenic patio enjoying the Sonoma sunset. The pool was a welcome relief during the day and the hot tub kept us cozy in the evenings. The home is conveniently located near town and a number of wineries, but you still feel miles away. It's the perfect place to spend a relaxing vacation while still having the luxuries of home, including surround sound, wifi, and cable. We would go back in a heartbeat!

Car: Necessary

Many guests enjoy relaxing by the pool listening to music & following the sun course across the sky, observing the wild life and spectacular views when not visiting neighboring wineries. In the Summer, many find it fascinating to watch fingers of the SF Bay Area fog creap over the Western Mountain Range while swimming in the pool or enjoying the expansive pool patio.
