Overview

About the property

3 Bed, 2 Bath With Mountain Views And Expansive Deck For Outdoor Leisure

Visiting Starview Lodge makes you feel a world away from the bustle of the city, despite being only 2 hours from San Francisco. Situated on Cobb Mountain – the tallest of the Mayacamas range above Calistoga - you will be treated to the scent of a dense forest, spectacular mountain views, and the best stargazing!

The lodge has three well-appointed bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a great room for entertaining. The master bedroom has a California King memory foam bed, while the second bedroom has a Queen memory foam bed and its own en-suite bathroom. The third bedroom has two bunk beds for a total of 4 twin beds, all with memory foam mattresses. All bedrooms are outfitted with premium linens and comforters.

The open great room combines kitchen, dining room and living room, all view spectacular views of the surrounding forest and Cobb Mountain. The lodge backs up to Boggs State Forest, and sits in a small clearing in the trees. There is a clear view of the night sky - it's a wonderful place to watch a meteor shower!

In the winter months, curl up by the wood-burning fireplace and sprawl on the couch to read a great book. You might also consider watching your favorite Netflix movie on the 40” HDTV.

In the summer, take advantage of the expansive deck with large gas grill, adirondack chairs and outdoor dining table. Read a book while listening to the birds and deer rummage for food, or invite some friends and have an outdoor feast.

Once you have settled into the relaxed mountain atmosphere, you can leave the car behind and walk to many of the great things Cobb has to offer, including:

• Boggs State Forest – hiking, mountain biking (1/4 mile, 5 minutes)

• Cobb Mountain Golf Course, Restaurant and Bar (5 minutes)

• Hardester’s Grocery (10 minutes)

• Mountain High Coffee (10 minutes)

• Brick Oven Pizza (10 Minutes)

You can also take a scenic drive through the mountains and discover other great nearby destinations, including:

• Pine Grove Family Resort – 2 swimming pools and a café (3 minutes)

• Moore Family Winery – Estate-made white and red varietals in the Red Hills appellation (10 Minutes)

• Loch Lomond Roadhouse – Food, drinks and live music (10 minutes)

• Harbin Hot Springs (10 minutes)

Your pet(s) are always welcome at Starview Lodge. There is a fully fenced deck and separate dog run in the side yard for your best friends to enjoy, and a state forest with thousands of acres to play is right outside the back door!

The cabin is equipped with cable TV, high-speed Internet with WiFi, HDTV, and central heat and central air conditioning.

Where is Cobb Mountain? It is less than an hour from Sonoma, Mendocino and Napa counties. It is two hours from Sacramento / central valley, and two hours from the San Francisco Bay Area. The town of Cobb is above 2600’ and receives several periods of light snow during the winter! And because it is inland and sheltered from the coastal fog, it reaches wonderful but comfortable 80s/90s temperatures in the summer. It’s a perfect escape any time of the year.

Another pleasant year at Starview Lodge in Cobb

  • 5 of 5

We keep returning to Starview Lodge for our summer gathering at Cobb and it is always tidy and comfortable. We like that we can bring our dogs to this home.

This year we went during a heat wave. The AC was a life saver. I usually wouldn't turn it on, but it was too hot not to. We always enjoy the deck and the hammock. Great stargazing at night.

Very close to small store and coffee shop. Doesn't get much better than that for such a great price. We will be back!

Peaceful and spacious rental in the woods

  • 4 of 5

We had a planned trip to Yosemite but had to scrap our plans due to the wildfires and booked this property 3 days before we arrived. The booking process was quick and easy. The home was very spacious and clean for our family of 5. My kids loved the double bunk beds in their room and older daughter liked having her own space - those rooms are downstairs (spiral staircase) which was nice. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed for the meals we cooked. The outside deck and hammocks were very popular with our crew. This home has AC which is a necessity for our family - especially since the days we were visiting were warm. There were boardgames, a Wii console, cards - very well stocked for families.

The only downside I will mention (and only reason not 5-stars) is that getting to Cobb from the south means driving up CA-29, which is a super windy mountain road, with a lot of switchbacks which were tough if you get carsick. All the activities we chose to do were south in Sonoma County so we made the drive quite a few times. Just something to consider when planning a stay in Cobb especially if you are coming from the south.

Other than that, we enjoyed our stay and would stay here again if we were in the Cobb area.
