About the property

Beautiful Suite With Private Kitchenette & Bathroom!

Our beautiful private suite with a separate entrance is located on our Hidden Valley Lake property in pastoral Lake County, which starts just north of Calistoga at the northern end of Napa Valley and east of Santa Rosa in Sonoma County. After Calistoga, you'll drive a few miles over Mt. St. Helena and drop down into Lake County passing through Middletown to Hidden Valley Lake 6 miles beyond. Like both Napa and Sonoma Counties, Lake County is a superb wine growing region, specializing in high elevation wines! So when you come up to stay plan on some wine tasting!

What sets Lake county apart is the peacefulness and tranquility still present in a more rural atmosphere than that of Napa or Sonoma. Our suite is a perfect spot for a "BABYMOON!" Why? Because Hidden Valley Lake is unique for it's tranquil setting of houses nestled high in the hills and above the Hidden Valley Lake (HVL) golf course as well. HVL is a gated community as is our entire personal property which is also fenced and gated for privacy, especially to keep those beautiful, but pesky, deer out of our garden!

When you arrive, you will find a welcome basket of wine, cheese, fruit and crackers, plus some basic food and beverage amenities for your breakfast on your first morning. The suite is extremely well stocked with various amenities, including a 32' flat screen TV, DVDs, WIFI, a fully outfitted kitchen area and beautiful bathroom, also. Countertops are granite with beautiful glass and stone backsplashes. Immediately outside the suite you'll find an intimate exterior 'living room,' a perfect place to read, or sip a glass of wine, as you quietly look out on the beautiful valley below. In short, the suite has been set up to be intimate and serene, so that you are refreshed and reinvigorated by the end of your stay. Pack your swimsuits and beach towels, s you will be able to swim in our beautiful private infinity edged swimming pool, or, if you prefer lake swimming, you can drive down to either of the beaches that are adjacent to Hidden Valley Lake down below in the valley.

Fun activities abound nearby. There are 2 gambling casinos: Twin Pine Casino not 15 minutes away in Middletown and Robinson Rancheria at the northern end of the county in Lakeport, 45 minutes away! The beautiful 18 hole Hidden Valley Lake Golf Course and 2 tennis courts are available right down the hill. The Greenview Room Bar and casual restaurant is located in between the tennis courts and driving range. If you enjoy lounging at a beach by a lake, Hidden Valley Lake has 2 beaches at which you can enjoy yourselves. The lake itself is a delight to swim in. Do you like paddle boarding or canoeing? Bring them up with you to enjoy on the lake. As your hosts, we'll be happy to provide names of several restaurants and wineries for your touring enjoyment.

Why not book a weekend? Let us welcome you to the high elevation beauty of Lake County and Hidden Valley Lake!

About Sherrye Schwarz, Earl Woodall

We are senior citizens who have been enjoying a delightful retirement. We thought that others (you?) might enjoy a little of the magic we've found here in Hidden Valley Lake, too. Being ex-San Franciscans and ex-Marin County residents, we know how one likes to get away to a more rural environment once in a while. Our property affords you that special getaway location, as it is just 2 1/2 hours north of San Francisco, and about 2 1/2 hours west of Sacramento, so a great getaway spot not too far from home, wherever you're driving from! Just a delightful ride from 'The City by the Bay,' or Sacramento, or anywhere in the East Bay or South Bay. Why not come up for a weekend and explore all that Lake County has to offer?

Why Sherrye Schwarz, Earl Woodall chose North Coast

We have traveled quite a bit and always love 'coming home' to this beautiful part of Northern California. We hope that you will enjoy the unique quality of Lake County, too! Our air is considered the cleanest air quality in all of California. Nature and animals abound. But in addition, you will find great high elevation wine tasting, gambling and dining at the nearby Twin Pine Casino, sports (tennis and/or golf) are all available, should you want to take advantage of these activities. What about a hot air balloon ride over our valley? Our property has a delightful infinity edged swimming pool not 75' from the suite, should you want to take the plunge! We also offer wonderful conveniences, such as WIFI and a 32' flat screen TV with DVD player, so you can have amenities which you are used to and may need to use while you relax. Whatever you choose to do, we know you will be refreshed at the conclusion of your visit.

What makes this apartment unique

The views you'll see from everywhere on our property are incredible! The pictures in this ad tell the story. It is not uncommon to see multiple hot air balloons flying early in the still morning air. After a day touring wineries, swimming at our pool or down at Hidden Valley Lake, or playing golf or tennis, you'll find a delightful and intimate exterior 'living room' just outside the door of your suite where you can enjoy an 'adult beverage' of your choice and some appetizers, or perhaps play a game of chess or backgammon or checkers! Or why not prepare a nice barbeque or kitchen prepared intimate dinner and eat it out by the pool, if you don't want to go out to one of the local restaurants. Oh yes! Casual clothes only! No need to dress up! You will definitely find yourself breathing deeply and your pace slowing down from your more busy day-to-day lives when you come to Lake County and our property in Hidden Valley Lake!

Lovely Relaxing Long Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for the relaxing long weekend! The property is beautiful with great views. We loved spending time in the infinity pool and stargazing at night. The guest suite was perfect with a beautiful and well stocked kitchen. There was plenty of privacy and my husband and I had the perfect weekend. Sherreye and Earl were so welcoming and accommodating. Thanks again for a lovely weekend!

Great week rental

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this guest house for a week in June while we were working in the area. The space was perfect, with all the amenities one could need. It was stocked with lots of essentials and a bottle of wine and cheese as a welcome gift. The outdoor kitchen/pool space has great views and was a perfect place to relax after a hard day of work. Sherrye is a wonderful host who goes above and beyond to make her guests feel comfortable. I definitely recommend this rental for anyone visiting the area.

Beautiful & Perfect Tranquility!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently celebrated our 11th Anniversary at this amazingly beautiful and peaceful home on the mountainside in Hidden Valley Lake. The hosts, Sherrye and & Earl have outdone themselves with the pool area, lounge, and the room itself. After a warm welcome and quick tour by Sherrye we were left alone for our time unless we asked the hosts for something. The infinity edge pool area is amazing, with views of the town and lake it's paradise! I've stayed at many VRBO properties but this one has been our favorite so far, and we will visit there again soon. Thank you Sherrye and Earl for an amazing anniversary, we love you and will be back!

Relaxing hideaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed three nights for our 25th anniversary. Sherrye and Earl provided the most amazing space in which to relax and unwind. Napping by the pool and gazing at the view were the best. The infinity pool and gorgeous landscaping set it apart from other properties. In addition, the extra special touches such as champagne, fresh flowers and an anniversary card were very much appreciated.

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

I have been staying at this great property during the week while working on the Valley Fire cleanup efforts. It's difficult to be away from home and family while on this job, but it's made so much better by having this quiet, comfortable, cozy space to come "home" to while I'm working.

My wife came up to visit and loved staying here with me as well, and appreciated knowing I have somewhere so comfortable to stay while I'm away from home working. Sherrye and Earl have been extremely helpful and accommodating. Don't have enough good things to say.

Beautiful and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Ditto to all the previous reviews. The suite is just as beautiful as the pictures show and everything is exactly as expected from the posting. It is clear that Sherrye and Earl have thought of everything and are very committed to making sure their guests enjoy their visit. Sherrye communicated with us thoroughly in advance to coordinate the visit and everything was ready for us when we arrived so that we could get down to the business of relaxing right away. We particularly enjoyed the pool, the kitchen with every amenity you may need, and the peaceful bird watching from the deck (so many hummingbirds!). This is a lovely and comfortable retreat!

Hidden Valley Lake is a unique community located 6 miles north of Middletown, which is the southern-most town in Lake County, as one drives north from Calistoga in Napa County. It is about 10 miles south of the town of Clear Lake and the largest fresh water lake located totally within the borders of California: Clearlake!

Among other attractions, Lake County is noted for its high elevation wines, which makes a couple of days of wine tasting a wonderful experience.

If you enjoy an evening of gambling, the Twin Pine Casino is only 8 miles away at the southern end of the county, while Robinson's Rancheria casino is at the northern end of the county in the Lakeport area!

Sports anyone? Hidden Valley Lake offers two wonderful activities 5 minutes from our property: golfing on the HVL 18 hole golf course and tennis on one of the two tennis courts.

If you like lake swimming, Hidden Valley Lake itself is delightful. There are two beaches at which you can picnic, or from which you can swim or bring a paddle board and enjoy a day on the water.

Why not come on up and experience this wonderful part of Northern California? Lake County is magical and we're sure that once you feel the magic of the area, you'll want to revisit many times!
