White Glove Quality With Small Town Charm

  • 5 of 5

The house is immaculate -- the sheets a crisp, the floors are spotless, the robes are lush, the baths are indulgent. All that said, the best part is joining the warm, local culture -- grabbing coffee down the block, inhaling the fresh popcorn at the saloon, trekking the silent forest around Jack London's home. Oh -- and then there is the wine. Hosts Paul and Melissa know all about it and are ready to share. They work overtime at making your stay seamless and full of fun. Can't wait to go back.

Perfect house, hosts thought of everything!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect in terms of location (near wineries and restaurants, but also close to hiking trails). The house offers tremendous comfort and amenities, with little things like a coffee, a coffee grinder, and wide selection of teas available.

Just what we wanted for a bachelorette party...

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Village Glen was perfect! We were within walking distance of several great restaurants and wineries, and the grocery store was nearby so we were able to go get a lot of our food to cook in the house. Also, I had been worried about having the max available people stay at the house, however there was plenty of room for the 8 of us.

Melissa was very communicative and the refund for the deposit was processed promptly. Great stay, great value! Already talking about doing a couples trip in the future and we will look to stay at Village Glen.

Perfect Sonoma home

  • 5 of 5

This was such a great/cute little spot! The house was very well appointed, Glen Ellen is such a darling little community, and it was close to a lot of great wineries in Sonoma. The host Melissa was also wonderful and very responsive. Everyone enjoyed how personal the experience felt and we all agreed we would stay here again!
