Down a quiet country lane, surrounded by vineyard and orchard views, sits our re-modeled 1920's farmhouse. Welcome to paradise in the wine country!
Most of the property's seven acres are devoted to apple orchard and meadow. The main house consists of four spacious bedrooms, three bathrooms, a living room, formal dining room and den. The kitchen is well equipped and makes it fun to feed a group indoors or outdoors. The kitchen was completely remodeled in the Spring of 2015. The house has everything you need to make your wine country vacation enjoyable. Beds and baths are appointed with fine linens. Off the kitchen, a large patio and deck provide a perfect spot for barbequeing and dining al fresco at the large teak table. Read and fall asleep in the large hammock. The location, the so-called Banana Belt, has more sun than anywhere in West Sonoma County! Days start out cool, warm up through the afternoon and then cool off again in the evening, making this a perfect climate for living inside or out.
There is a remodeled, one bedroom guesthouse with a full bath, living room, and wet bar.
A 40', solar-heated swimming pool near the main house provides a great place to cool off in the heat of the afternoon. There are two organic vegetable gardens where you can pick over 50 different varieties of herbs, vegetables and fruits for your meals (depending upon the season). Over 70 mature rose bushes around the house provide bursts of color. There is a sport court with a basketball hoop, volleyball net and lights for late evening play.
There are many fun things to do nearby. You'll be close to the greatest pinot noir and chardonnay tasting rooms of the Sonoma Coast and Russian River Valley. Healdsburg, Sebastopol, Graton, Occidental and Forestville are minutes away by car. You will find wonderful restaurants, art galleries, and fun shops as you explore these charming towns. There are several excellent grocery stores within a few miles and the Sunday farmers' market in Sebastopol is fantastic.
The possibilities for active outdoor living are limitless! You can walk, run or bike the Joe Rodata trail or the scenic and little-traveled backroads nearby. There are four public golf courses, including a Dr. Alister MacKenzie design, a short distance away. The Pacific coastline is a beautiful drive over the hill from Graton through Occidental. Hiking beneath beautiful Redwood groves or canoeing on the Russian River is 15 minutes away. For the thrill-seekers, there is a zip-lining course in the Redwood forest only 7 miles away.
If you are looking for a special treat, you can revive yourself with a day trip to the famous mud baths in Calistoga. If you desire something closer, there are several day spas in the immediate area.
The property is very private and quiet. At night, city dwellers will be dazzled by a sky full of stars. You are away from it all and still close to everything. San Francisco is 60 miles to the south.

Why Katie chose Sebastopol
We purchased this lovely country house to have a way to get away from the city and the fog in San Francisco. The weather in Sebastopol is almost always delightful. We enjoy the house year-round. Green Valley Haven is unbelievably peaceful.

Recently returned from 4 nights here. House was fantastic! Kitchen was perfect, great dining room, SUPERB outside area!! We tried to stay out as long as we could, but the evening winds were blowing cold. This would be a great place to stay in the summer when the pool is in functional and the weather suits. We had a group of 8 and everyone enjoyed it! Drove out everyday to wineries and never too far to hit the ones we wanted; even drove to the coast one day! Graton was closest town and it has a couple to restaurants and tasting rooms. If you stay, you have to go to Underwood for dinner. We went twice.. Great property value.
Fantastic place to stay!
We loved everything about renting the Charming Country House. The setting is incredible. The house and property are wonderful. You will need nothing as the house is very well equipped for just about anything you can need or imagine. The owner is great to deal with did everything possible to make our stay memorable. There were 8 of us and everyone felt the same and want to rent it again!
Beautiful experience ~ beautiful home.
Having just returned from our CA stay, we are anxious to return when the pool is open & roses are in full bloom. Our family gathering of 6 adults & 2 children was entirely enjoyable, in large part because Katie is so communicative. Her home is lovely. A work of art ~ think Frank Lloyd Wright.
The children were happy with the comfortable surroundings, playroom, comfy beds & our daily nature walks. Adults appreciated the stunning views, as well as the meticulously kept, extremely well appointed & equipped home. Katie’s timely notes & attention to detail contributed in important ways to our family’s enjoyment.
We’re grateful for our time in Green Valley Haven. It is conveniently located; features beautiful & comfortable amenities & is spacious, yet warm. The photos are representative yet cannot fully capture the beauty of the interior & gorgeous setting of this unique home & its surroundings.
Highest recommendation! 5+ stars.
We have stayed at a number of properties over the years and this one took care of the little things that make a vacation home perfect: nice mattresses, beautiful decor, a well-maintained home, fully stocked kitchen, and an unbeatable setting.
Gorgeous, well kept property in a perfect location.
Our family stayed at Katie's house for a birthday weekend. We filled the house and the guest house, the youngest is 10 and the oldest 75 and everyone loved it. For us it was perfect. The house is very clean and has everything we needed, the kitchen, dining room, and living room are large and comfortable for hanging around together, the rooms were very nice, and the grounds were beautiful to walk around. We even spent a morning playing basketball. It's a great place for friends or family to be based for a wine tasting week, or a special occasion.
A beautiful retreat!
We stayed at this property for ten days for a small family reunion. The house itself is beautifully appointed, and contains anything and everything you could ever want. As an avid cook, the kitchen, in particular was a total dream. The surrounding property is also absolutely stunning. We picked from the vegetable garden and fruit trees daily, played on the sports' court and swam in the beautiful pool. It really had something for everyone in our group, from the age of 6 to 75! Finally, the property owners could not be lovelier or easier to communicate with. They answered any questions we had within hours, and had fabulous suggestions for things to do in the area. Truly one of the best holidays we have ever had as a family.
Great biking, walking opportunities. Great wineries and tasting rooms nearby.
