Guestbook comments from the owner

The ranch has been the perfect getaway for 2 couples celebrating one's 40th birthday. Each day we woke up to enjoy the stunning views, and walk through the fields of gold. We equally treasured the sunsets each night sitting on the deck. Thank you for opening your home to us - we desperately want to return.

Great Getaway - Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent five days at this property. The house and the views are amazing. House was just a pictured - maybe even better!. Kitchen well stocked. Comfortable bed. Easy access to the towns in Sonoma and Napa. We loved sitting on the deck at the end of the day overlooking the valley and having morning coffee/tea outside the kitchen. We will be back!

Hands down the best VRBO home we have stayed at yet!!!

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival, we were a little nervous about the one lane road on the side of a mountain that leads to the property, but once we turned that last corner and saw the beautiful home on top of the hill, we knew we picked the right house. My wife and I were in the Napa area for our 10th wedding anniversary. As soon as we opened the front door there was a bottle of wine and a personal note congratulating us on our anniversary, courtesy of the home owner Stefanie!! The inside of the home was very clean and spacious. The outside of the property is a whole other story!! Not only was it clean but it was very beautiful. As I mentioned earlier the house sits on top of a hill and the views are amazing, you can see for miles in every direction. As if that was not enough they have an entire entertainment area on top of the garage with 360 degree views for miles. The property is very large with a lot of stuff to see, there is a koi pond with large beautiful fish swimming around, that was my favorite spot each morning just sitting there watching the fish. Beautiful garden and surroundings, my wife spent most of her mornings and evenings taking pictures of the entire grounds. The home is a short drive to Healdsburg and Alexander Valley wineries, and roughly 45 minutes from Napa Valley. There is absolutely no shortage of things to do within just a few miles of this property. I could go on and on about this property, but in closing I would just say, you will absolutely not be disappointed by renting this home!!! We could not be more pleased with our decision to rent this home.

Perfection

  • 5 of 5

From the beautiful views, charming home, and friendly and attentive host one can see why this rental is top rated. The gardens are beautiful and the wildlife (deers, koi, turkeys etc) are plentiful. The location is convenient to all areas of the wine country. We found the paved driveway a pleasant drive and enjoyed it with a convertible. No problems navigating it! The only thing I would have enjoyed that was missing was a hot tub !

We plan on renting again in the future!

Amazing ranch on the hill!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We completely enjoyed our stay - only wish it could have been longer! The views are incredible and the ranch house is beautifully decorated and has everything you could ask for. The kitchen was well stocked with all you need to cook a great meal. Very open, light and extremely comfortable. We also loved being in a completely private area but you were not so far from town that it was inconvenient. The pictures just don't do it justice... We will definitely be back!

Peaceful quiet Secluded mountaintop retreat in the heart of wine country

  • 5 of 5

The house is quiet, clean, and well appointed. My wife and I stayed for a week in late October. Unfortunately for us (but good for the drought), it rained most of the week. The gardens around the house and the rolling hills are peaceful and beautiful. We were not able to use the deck because of the rain and cool weather, but it looks nice and would be a good place to relax in the evening in the summer. Wine country is all around as are several state parks with recreation options. Our only complaint was trying to dispose of garbage at a commercial dumpster (most were locked) at the end of the week since there is no trash service. This is a great quiet private place to stay in the heart of wine country. I highly recommend it.
