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 off street parking for up to three 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.

Even better than we expected

Beautiful house that has clearly been thoughtfully designed, and is well taken care of. The kitchen is stocked with appliances, the furniture is nice, the bathrooms are beautiful, and the beds are comfortable. This is a great house for a wine country vacation!

Beautiful, cozy getaway in Sonoma Valley

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at Olive Glen for a few days on vacation in wine country this June. It was the PERFECT place for us! The space was divided just as we needed for a couple families, the views were stunning, the house was fully equipped with everything we needed, and Melissa and Paul were perfect hosts. I really can't say enough about it! We will definitely be back.

Amazing girls weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We just visited for a mother/daughter weekend, there were 6 of us, and we absolutely loved the Olive Glen house. Everything was clean and updated, the house was very well stocked and appointed. The open kitchen/living area and back deck were awesome for morning coffee and hanging out together. Beds and linens were all very comfortable and we couldn't have asked for anything better. The owners, Paul and Mellissa, were very accommodating by sending local attractions info when we booked, which we definitely referred to during the trip. They also left us a nice welcome note and bottle of wine upon checking in - such a sweet touch! Would highly recommend this home, it was a great find!

The property was in excellent condition and clean. No surprises from the photos on the site.

  • 5 of 5

The ideal property for friends and families to call home while visiting the sonoma or napa valleys. The property was well equipped with ALL necessary amenities to make you feel right at home. From an amazing patio with bbq, to the pool and ping pong tables, we never had difficulty keeping ourselves throughly entertained. Melissa and Paul were very knowledgeable and helpful hosts before, during, and after our stay. You dont want to miss out on this true home away from home in the heart of wine country.

Olive Glen is Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I had a fun and relaxing stay at Olive Glen where our every need was met! Melissa and Paul helped us plan our wine country excursions to wineries, restaurants and beautiful hikes. Their beautiful home had everything we needed to cook when we wanted, spread out on the porch or the back yard and enjoy the spectacular view of the river. The location was quiet and peaceful yet close to town. This was my third visit and I look forward to many more.
