Overview

About the property

5 Bedroom, 4 bathroom, Swimming Pool, 7 Acres

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.

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 Sonoma County

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.

Absolutely stunning property and charming home

  • 5 of 5

A group of 10 of us rented Katie's place for a long weekend to celebrate my husband's 30th birthday. The property was absolutely perfect for us. We had plenty of room for everyone and we took advantage of the many amenities like: ping pong in the barn, basketball on the sports court, board games, the beautiful views, and the gorgeous and well-equipped kitchen. It is very apparent that the owners truly treasure this place. The location is very private and quiet while still being close to Graton and Sebastopol where we went wine tasting one day. Katie was great to work with and super responsive to any messages or requests. She checked in to make sure we all arrived safe and that everything was in order and even had someone come over to light a pilot light that was out in the guest house. It's one of the most beautiful vacation rentals I have ever stayed at and I can't wait to be back!

Wonderful Wine Country House

  • 5 of 5

Can't recommend this highly enough for a group. The house and grounds are beautiful and very comfortable. Lots of places for people to hang out together or get some private time. Our daughter was celebrating her 40th birthday nearby and I was responsible for a chunk of the brunch the next morning. The kitchen is very well equipped. And the owner was exceptionally responsive and accommodating.

Perfect for a Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for my father's 80th birthday celebration. It was perfect. The main home is beautifully appointed - with much of the original detail preserved - and has plenty of room for a large group. There are several comfortable spaces for both gathering and getting away, as well as a nicely stocked and recently updated kitchen. The guest house also is very nicely done, with a well designed bedroom and living area.

The setting of the home is gorgeous. The view from the spacious deck area, especially at sunset, is beautiful. Though we did not take advantage of the gardens or the pool given the time of our stay (mid-March), we hope to do so during a summer visit. We loved using the sport court for basketball with our boys, and the ping-pong table in the barn was put to good use as well.

The location of the home is ideal. Great wineries, redwood hiking, quaint towns and the the ocean are all in close proximity. Our routine was to sleep in, have a late breakfast, explore the area for a few hours, and return to have cocktails on the deck at sunset. Though we ate in most nights, there are many great restaurants in nearby Sebastopol, Graton and other towns. It really was perfect. My father had a wonderful time.

The owner of the home is extremely responsive and professional. She alerted us to road closures in the area due to flooding, gave us alternate routes, and was genuinely concerned with ensuring our stay was satisfactory. This is easily the best rental we have found through VRBO. We highly recommend.

Amazing Stay in Sebastopol

  • 5 of 5

My family (10 of us) stayed here over the holiday week. The property was amazing. It is located in a very quiet area and has a lot of nice amenities. The location was perfect as we were able to visit Healdsburg, Calistoga, downtown Sebastopol, Sonoma and other parts of Napa with a quick drive from the house. The owner was also very responsive with us, which we really appreciated. I highly recommend this house for a family reunion.

Wonderful week in a charming home

  • 5 of 5

This house was an amazing home from home with so much to do for the kids, we hardly saw them! The house was very well equipped and even had a secret shoot for your laundry! For the kids there was the pool, basketball, tennis and pingpong. My 80 year old mother stayed in the annex house, which provided a peaceful recluse. We also enjoyed the beautiful strawberries straight from the garden. The location is amazing: a short walk and you are surrounded by vineyards with some great restaurants a short car ride away. Our party consisted of my mother, 4 adults and 4 children (aged between 8-13). The owner, Katie, was very responsive and made sure that our stay went smoothly. In summary, a wonderful retreat for all ages.

Ideally arranged

  • 5 of 5

For the second year we so enjoyed this house and property. Each bedroom provides comfort and privacy, and the public spaces allow for varied activities -- games, talk, cooking and dining. We had fruits and vegetables from the gardens and lovely walks on the country road. Everyone marvels at the pool and deck space. The owners are careful to provide everything necessary and respond quickly to any unforeseen needs. Anyone who visits us there wonders how we even found something so perfect for our getaway.
