A glorious, picturesque mini estate with fishing and boating pond, redwood grove, orchard, and hiking trails, all set in a private sunny meadow. As featured in Sunset magazine, a gourmet, over sized country kitchen, antique mantle on wood burning fireplace and Parisian antiques complete the feeling of elegance and serenity. Step outside to a cozy covered porch with upholstered wicker furniture and large entertaining deck with hot tub and a view that takes your breath away. The house is adjacent to a 80 acre vineyard and features surround sound throughout the house with a high end Denon stereo system for auxiliary input devices. There is a Bose Wave system for CD's.
In counterpoint and worthy of Architectural Digest is the new modern master bedroom with Italian metal windows in wonderful contrast to the first growth redwood floors salvaged from a local Sonoma County Barn. Oversized beams that support the suspended ceiling and asymmetrical skylight creates the feeling that you are sleeping in a Redwood Grove in a W hotel setting. All this faces onto the pond, enormous redwoods and bathed in full sun. Fireplace, bath and separate shower, plus awarding winning designer touches.
In addition to the primary residence, there is a real miner's tent cabin on the property that contains a beautiful queen sized sleigh bed with top shelf linens. Brand new this year, the tent cabin has a space heater and limited power. The tent is located on the other side of the pond. Fall asleep with the sounds of the frogs and seasonal creek.

About the owner: Hi everyone. Nice to meet you. We are John + Sue. John’s from Pittsburgh PA and helps run a local craft beer and Sue is a local Bay Area native working at an organic food company. We are a fun-loving, travel-obsessed couple who love to hike, kayak and chill in nature.
Why the Owner Chose Occidental, CA, USA:
When we stepped onto the property we had that ‘feeling’ that this place was special. The light, the views, the serenity and calm definitely spoke to us. There is truly a magical quality about Still Light Pond. From the private redwood grove with seasonal creek, to fishing in a corner of the pond, the stillness of the light, hiking trails, watching the birds from herons to egrets, private safari tent , all within a restored farmhouse property. It was love at first sight.
The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
Whether you are looking for a relaxing retreat or discovery weekend of all the area has to offer-- wine tasting for world class pinots, organic/local food, canoeing or kayaking down the Russian River, golfing 20 minutes away at Bodega Bay or cycling the great backroads; the location will amaze you for its close proximity to so many diverse areas. It’s only a few miles from Russian River, 6 mi from the coast, close to Bodega Bay and Tomales Bay. Wine tasting, hiking, cycling and kayaking are our favorite activities, come enjoy them here at Still Light Pond.
