About the property

3 Bedroom 2 Bath with Game Room and Sonoma Mountain View with Wineries nearby

Olive Glen is a vacation rental in beautiful Glen Ellen, California, minutes from the world-famous wineries of Sonoma Valley and Napa. This beautiful, private home was recently completed by a premium local builder. It is sited on nearly an acre of land with views of treetops, Sonoma Mountain, and Sonoma Creek. The home is shaded by mature olive and redwood trees. Its features include a fully equipped chef's kitchen, comfortable for multiple cooks, solar power, an electric car charging station, a home entertainment center, an indoor dining area for 6, outdoor dining for 10, gas fireplace, hardwood floors, wine cooler, upscale linens, modern decor, and much more. The master bedroom's en suite bath has a giant soaking tub. All living space is on a single level, which opens out to a 1500-square-foot deck with areas to lounge, a teak dining table, a gas BBQ, and southern exposure for all-day sunshine (most of the time). The deck is a perfect place to enjoy a glass of rosé and read a good book (there's a PS3 inside if that's not your thing). There is plenty of parking for up to four cars. A favorite feature is the outdoor lighted and covered game room, complete with a pool table, ping pong, and darts.  

Olive Glen is about half a mile from fine dining options in the village of Glen Ellen, including the acclaimed Aventine, Glen Ellen Star, Jack London Saloon, The Fig Cafe and Wine Bar, and the Glen Ellen Inn.  There are dozens of vineyards, wineries, and wine-tasting rooms nearby, several within walking distance.  The area is also perfect for hiking, biking, photography, and relaxing.  We hope you enjoy Olive Glen and Glen Ellen as much as we do.

Please note that although we do love pets, we do not allow pets of any kind at Olive Glen.

The maximum number of guests allowed on the property at any time is 6.

Incredible Property & Location

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing family vacation at the Olive Glen property. It was a perfectly described property and the town of Glen Ellen was perfectly situated to get to Sonoma Square or through the mountain pass to Sonoma Valley in 25 minutes. Plenty of amazing restaurants within walking distance of the house. Beside the wine, bicycling from the front door was great. rolling roads or even tackle some of the difficult mountain grades (up to 16%). If you like to cook, which we did, a fully appointed kitchen made it a perfect week. We are looking forward to coming back again soon.

Perfect place in Glen Ellen

  • 5 of 5

The home was even better than advertised and the perfect base for our three couples exploring Sonoma. Everything was immaculate and well documented so there was no time wasted figuring out the lighting or home entertainment. Wonderful attention to detail... from the tea and coffee drawer to the margarita fixings in the cupboard and the right (and left) handed guitars, nothing was overlooked. An unexpected highlight of the trip was our visit to the Jack London State Historic Park less than 2 miles from the property.

Top notch

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 6 days at this wonderful home. We are experienced VRBO travelers and found this location to be one of our favorites. Paul and Melissa are wonderful hosts and communicated with us from the time of our reservation until our departure. The home has everything you could want from a herb garden for cooking to a game room for entertainment. Their television/electronic game setup was the most extensive that we have found in any of our stays. We highly recommend this location and will stay there again if we ever find our travels to the Glen Ellen area in the future.
