About the property

2000+ sq ft 2 bed/2 bath home with beautiful countryside and mountain views.

Ross House sits on a scenic 4 acre property on the outskirts of Sebastopol and very close to the quaint town of Forestville. The West County Regional trail for biking, hiking and running is located at the end of the road.

The house is in very close proximity to many major Sonoma wineries including Iron Horse, Paul Hobbs and Lynmar. Great restaurants are within a 5 minute drive.

The house has a lovely king master suite. The second bedroom has two single beds which can be combined and made into a king bed. The beds are extremely comfortable with top quality linens.

The bathrooms are equipped with products for a weekend stay.

The kitchen is stocked with pans, utensils, glassware and china from Williams and Sonoma and Pottery Barn. All of the Viking appliances are brand new.

Ross House has very large outdoor areas furnished with lounge chairs, umbrellas, eating areas. There is a large bbq for grilling.

Overlooking the vineyard is the "Teapee" which is a lovely covered sitting area with great views. Great spot for afternoon tea.

Vineyard workers will occasionally be working on the property but they do not have access to the main house.

Unfortunately we do not accommodate weddings.

Please see notes for additional information.

Wonderful, well appointed, secluded home.

  • 5 of 5

We visited over Thanksgiving week with our two sons. This house turned out to be just as lovely as advertised--a spotlessly clean, comfortable, beautifully situated base from which to explore Sonoma and the Russian River Valley. We even took a day trip to Bodega Bay, which is a short distance away. The layout was ideal providing adequate space to be together as well as alone. We found everything we needed in the well-equipped kitchen, watched some football in the comfortable living room, and best of all, started each evening with a glass of wine in the backyard amid the grape vines and lush landscaping, including plants, herbs and lemon tree. Our host, Diane, could not have been more gracious. (The wine and quince jelly was a pleasant surprise.) Her assistant, Alison, was a delightful guide, answering all our questions and giving us some great advice for local eateries. We would highly recommend this property and intend to return in the future.

We were 2 couples who wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life and for us, it was all about a tranquil setting with first class accommodations. We found such a place and immediately upon walking through the front door, we could feel the city stress drop off us. The home is so beautifully furnished and decorated. The attention to detail proves that the owner is well travelled and, therefore, has thought about everything right down to robes on the beds. We wandered around the grounds and the views are spectacular. We then took the bottle of wine that the owner had left for us from the fridge and all went outside to the lovely seating area out the back. We had our days planned out with visiting some wineries (recommendations from Diane, the owner) but we would have been quite happy to just stay put and savor this delightful property! We ate in most nights as everything is there to cook a fabulous meal but we did go to a couple of local restaurants that Diane had recommended to us which were amazing. There are plenty of walks close by too and a great running track going right into Sebastopol. All in all, we have found the most perfect place to stay and we shall definitely be going back! Thank you Diane for the wonderful hospitality you provided us.

We had the most wonderful stay at the Ross House in October. The home was impeccably decorated and perfectly clean and organized. Just walking in the door made us decompress. The owners thought of everything to make our visit comfortable - from the plush towels, and bath products to the incredibly luxurious linens -- even the sheets and duvets are ironed. The outdoor area could not have been more inviting and lovely...the perfect place to have a glass of wine before dinner. The property is private and secluded, yet situated in close proximity to wineries and amazing restaurants. I can't recommend Ross House highly enough!!

Wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the Ross House. Everything was perfect! I have a hard time finding beds on vacation that are as comfortable as my own, and this one did not disappoint! It was the first vacation I have been on in a long time where I really was not ready to get back home. I could have stayed a month! The house was very clean and had everything we needed! The only thing missing was a pool but we really didn't miss it as we are not pool people but if we came back with our son we may want one. Other than that the property is simply perfect!! Communication with Diane and Lynda was very easy and made it that much more enjoyable to rent this house. Thanks Diane and Lynda!

Beautiful home, stunning property!!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful time while we stayed at the Ross House! The home itself is beautiful, with rooms that are designed simply, yet elegantly. The beds and bedding was very comfortable and everyone had a great night sleep. The kitchen and the appliances were new and easy to use. Everything we needed was there! There is a lovely dinning room that was large and welcoming - perfect for entertaining or family dinners. The gardens surrounding the house were my favorite part. The patio is the perfect place to sit and enjoy a glass of wine in the evenings. There is an area to the right of the home that was perfect for watching the sunset. Lynda the caretaker does a wonderful job. And she is very easy to communicate with during your stay if you need anything. The home is secluded up on a small hill so we still enjoyed privacy but often we'd take walks down the hill and visit the neighbor's horses. Just up the road there is a fantastic running trail that takes you through the vineyards. The main part of Sebastopol is about 15 minutes away - but there are wineries as close as a mile up the road so it actually feels very central to everything you want to experience in the area. It really gives you the feel of being out in the rustic country side, but with all the elegance and luxury you'd want in a vacation property.

I wish all vacation experiences could be like this...

  • 5 of 5

We rent vacation homes often (maybe 4-6 a year) and this is by far one of the best experiences we've ever had.

First, the property is exactly as pictured and described. Everything is there for you to feel at home, from the Nespresso coffee maker to the champagne glasses. Yet, it is so uncluttered and clean that we felt like we were the first group to ever stay there. We found ourselves checking labels on the bedding, towels, and amenities to replicate the luxury at home. The gardens were also lovely with fruit trees and flowers. I heard there are plans for a vineyard as well.

Second, the location is perfect. It's private and quiet while being an easy drive to fantastic restaurants and wineries: Willow Wood, Corks, Underwood, and Farmhouse Inn are all 5-8 min drive, as are wineries like Iron Horse, Paul Hobbs, and Lynmar. It was also easy to make day trips to Occidental, Healdsburg, and Sebastopol.

The star of it all is the home owner Diane and her property manager Lynn. They truly made the experience. We were celebrating a 40th birthday and arrived to find a bottle of sparkling wine with a "Happy Birthday" card on it waiting in the fridge. Diane has wonderful connections and got us last minute reservations for a tasting a Paul Hobbs. When she heard that we were going to Farmhouse Inn, she called ahead to let the head sommelier know to come say hello. Even if you aren't celebrating a major milestone, there are little things like the fact that they do not rent the cottage out at the same time that the main house is rented out to another party just so you have privacy. And the the kicker? When you check out, all you do is leave the key. No list of things to do (stripping the beds, doing dishes, etc.) and no designated check in or check out time. How refreshing is that?
