About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

FAMILIES AND FRIENDS: Treat yourself to this spacious retreat in the heart of Sonoma Valley, set amidst vineyards, farms, and pastoral mountain views. You'll enjoy the beautiful heated natural rock pool (heated during season) and the spa, outdoor fire pit, landscaped gardens, and bocce court. Lots of room to congregate or spread out. Come to relax.

Kenwood is located in the heart of the Sonoma Valley surrounded by world class wineries. Fantastic restaurants, from café to five-star, are in Kenwood and the neighboring village of Glen Ellen. Travel just ten miles to historic Sonoma Square or take a fifteen mile backroad drive to the heart of Napa Valley.

For Mountain Bikers you will find some of the best single-track biking in California one-half mile from our driveway. The vacant winding country roads of the area beckon your road bike. Within a five-mile radius are three state parks offering outdoor recreation including biking, hiking, picnicking and swimming. Spa facilities are available nearby at the Kenwood Inn and Spa or Sonoma Mission Inn and Spa.

A warm gracious living room invites you to sit by the fire and play cards, read, or watch a movie. The family room is off the patio and pool and has a wood burning stove.

The large, gourmet equipped kitchen allows several to happily cook while enjoying the company of their friends. You'll find such touches as a professional range, granite counters, and an espresso maker. The dining area seats eight, and a café/game table is in the family room.

There are a total of four bedrooms and four bathrooms on the property. There is an additional queen pullout sofa in a semi private living room.

The main house has two bedrooms and two full baths. The master bedroom has a king bed and doors leading to the patio and hot tub. The second bedroom has a queen bed. The master bath includes double sinks and a large Jacuzzi (bathtub).

Our spacious guest house is just steps away. It features a king bed, living area, mini-kitchen, full bath, and verandah.

The newly remodeled barn has one bedroom with 2 queen beds, a bathroom and a pool/pingpong table,

While fully equipped for entertaining, this is our family country home. We cannot accommodate large parties owing to zoning and our septic system. We do not wish to disturb our neighbors in this peaceful, private area. We ask that no more than 10 people be on the property, ( 8 adults max)

We invite you to come, enjoy your family and friends, and enjoy our home in Sonoma Valley! Please include a small description of your group and where you are visiting from when requesting a booking.

06/29/07 Positive This property is so fantastic! Our family had so much fun winding through the beautiful hills and vineyards of Kenwood to find this hidden jewel. Once we arrived, we enjoyed exploring the tasteful and casual main house, charming studio guest house and the cozy converted barn. For our family, center stage was the beautiful courtyard patio with a large table and rock edged pool. We appreciated having a removable and unobtrusive child safety fence in place upon our arrival. The kitchen was a dream - the cooks in our family used lavender and rosemary fresh from the patio garden in several dishes. The pool, bocce court and garden paths appealed to our children, and the adults enjoyed the ambiance of the courtyard patio during the day and evening as a conversation area.

04/03/07 Positive This is a very beautiful property that comfortably accommdates ten people. The grounds are spacious and provides lots of privacy from neighbors. Photos are accurate but doesn't do the property justice in representing it's beauty. It's the perfect Sonoma getaway.


04/03/07 Positive This house was a wonderful retreat in Sonoma. It is tucked away from all the main roads, in a beautiful and relaxing setting. The house is very spacious, clean, nicely furnished, and comfortable. The beds were comfy, the kitchen well-appointed... it is a real gem!

Great Location and Amazing Property

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a family get together and had a wonderful time! We had 7 adults and there was more than enough room to enjoy both the indoors and out! Home was very clean and comfortable. Enjoyed time around the pool and hot tub and the bocce ball court was an added bonus. Central location for wine tasting yet in a quiet setting with some great areas for walking or hiking. The owner was very accommodating and great to work with.

Thank you for a wonderful stay - we will be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you Patty, I am so glad your family get together was fun and that you enjoyed all the parts of the property. I think that is the only reason my family comes out to visit us, so they can enjoy the "Farm". It was great working with you too and thanks for taking such good care of the place. Come back again anytime. Rob

This property was absolutely perfect for our extended family, when we came to the area for a wedding. There was welcoming wine and fresh flowers to greet us! The separate out buildings provided plenty of room for different families, and the main house and yard had several comfortable areas to hang out. Some swam, some played bocce ball, some played board games, while others cooked and talked. We all LOVED the rural location and driving through vineyards and countryside to arrive. It was clean, well furnished and very comfortable in all respects! Absolutely loved our stay!

Perfect Girls Weekend Away

  • 5 of 5

I rented this property for 3 nights for my sisters bachelorette weekend. There were seven of us girls and this property could not be more perfect. Rob was very accommodating! This house is absolutely adorable and the pool was the icing on the cake. We spent the early morning hours cooking breakfast and chatting in the kitchen and after lounging around the pool all day we drank wine and played games in the cozy living room. I would recommend this place to anyone! It was a short drive to Kenwood and around a $30 Uber ride to Sonoma.

Perfect home, in a beautiful setting!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this home and the Kenwood area is really worth exploring, the vineyards close by were some of our favorites. Next time we won't leave as much as we had pre- planned time in Napa. This home and Kenwood provided the perfect escape in wine country. The home is extremely comfortable, well stocked and the perfect place to swim, relax and unwind. The deer were greeting us in the morning! We look forward to returning with our husbands and kids. The property provides a setting great for all ages!

A wonderful time was had by all

  • 5 of 5

Your Country Retreat is an amazingly wonderful place. We enjoyed cooking with a completely furnished, beautiful kitchen. We played bocce ball, intense ping pong games and were in the pool day and night. Everything was exquisite. Clean. Nicely furnished. Welcoming. Easy and thoughtful instructions. A personal touch. Easy access to to Kenwood wineries, the town of Sonoma and all things 'Valley of the Moon'. We would go every weekend if we could. Thank you for sharing this special place.
