The farm house exceeded our expectations and was everything that was advertised, plus some! We will definitely tell all of our friends about it and schedule a return visit!
I thoroughly enjoyed a lovely escape at this gorgeous property. No detail was overlooked; from the beautiful design and resort style luxury to the recommendations from Scott and his foresight and consideration of every amenity. Friends and I enjoyed the central location for wine country excursions while appreciating the private, quiet and natural surroundings for a walk, run or simply sitting on the patio for breakfast or a glass of wine. I look forward to future escapes with even more "il dolce far niente!"
This place is absolutely stunning! Just remote enough to enjoy deer and wild turkeys in the yard every evening; but close enough to all of the sights of Sonoma County (and Napa too). We were greeted with jazz piano music on an iPod, fresh flowers, a bottle of wine and assorted goodies. Scott is a diligent and courteous host; communication was spot on. The house itself was well stocked with nearly everything we could even think of needing. The kitchen, especially, had many of the "essentials" that make cooking at home seem feasible. The house also came with a high-end gas grill that inspired us to get some steaks and local vegetables. The living room and bedrooms were stylish, comfortable and relaxing. But our favorite spot was the patio, with a gas fireplace to take the chill off the evenings. Truly one of the high points of a glorious week in wine country!
Beautiful place....very private, quiet and comfortable. Scott was awesome to work with. Make sure you eat on the terrace at Kenwood restaurant....
This home is simply tremendous. The location is very convenient to so many wineries along with the other attractions this region has to offer (I highly recommend a day trip to Bodega Head). The property is tucked in from the road and feels very secluded. The deer and turkeys we woke up to daily would probably agree. The home itself is beautifully appointed, yet very comfortable. We both slept really well in the extremely comfortable king sized bed. The kitchen, bath and living rooms are also gorgeous.The patio is very large and gets a lot of sunlight. The koy fish are very cool as well. We're so happy to have stayed here!
We were lucky enough to spend a long weekend at this lovely house. With two couples, we had plenty of space to relax and feel comfortable. The pictures truly do not do this place justice. The kitchen and bathroom are top of the line, and the design, decor and gorgeous patio belong in a magazine. The house was stocked with anything we may have needed, and even had a lovely bouquet of flowers and bottle of wine to greet us upon our arrival. The owner was great helping to fit is into a tight rental schedule. He also made sure to let us know he was available should we need anything during our stay. I would highly recommend this house to anyone traveling to wine country!
