***Dear guests and travelers, we are extremely fortunate and happy to report that The Glen Ellen Stone Retreat is safe, and has not been damaged during these wine country fires! We look forward to welcoming you to our home and community, we need your support more than ever! Any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out***

The Glen Ellen Stone Retreat, located in the heart of Sonoma Wine County in the quaint town of Glen Ellen. This creekside home is on a quiet private road walking distance to towncenter. Glen Ellen is home to restaurants with locally grown organic ingredients and family operated wineries. There are several tasting rooms and a gourmet grocery store within a 5 minute walk, or you can venture in any direction and you'll find world renown wineries.

Kenwood is an 8 minute drive and downtown Sonoma is 15-20 minutes away. Less than a mile from the front door is the Quarry Hill Botanical Garden- relax by the water-lily-filled pond or the rushing waterfalls and immerse yourself in the beauty of their Chinese Heritage Rose Garden. Spend the day hiking, horseback riding, and enjoying a picnic in nature at the Historical Jack London State Park located one mile from the house.

The 1.25 acre creekside property is private and quiet. The house is 3500 square feet offering many different places for groups to gather, inside and out. Three of the bedrooms have their own en suite bath; the other two bedroom share a bath right across the hall. The perimeter of the property is lined with redwood trees. The lack of neighboring lights makes the stars especially bright. Nestled amongst oaks is a unique insulated tree house for guests to enjoy. The chemical-free pool is solar heated May-October. Enjoy your evening in the hot tub under the stars.

Our Recommendation!

Float in the fresh salt pool. Take a stroll along the creekside walking path. Play a fun filled game of tether ball beneath the trees or darts in the game room! Pick a few items from the vegetable garden for dinner. Throw some steak on the luxury BBQ. Savor a Glen Ellen Wine. Later, roast some marshmallows over the fire pit and take a relaxing soak in the hot tub. Gaze up at all the bright stars. Sleep in the fresh new beds with high thread count linens. Sleep like a stone.

A review in 2 parts....

  • 5 of 5

1) The house: It was perfect for us. We were a group of 7 and had plenty of space. The property is very well maintained with high end appliances if you want to cook in (we did). A great pool, hot tub and fire pit also were used by the group. A couple of cute restaurants are within a couple of minutes down the road. To a person, we'd all return!

2) The people: Unfortunately, our last night there was the night the wild fires broke out. A couple of us woke up to the smell of smoke and were talking about what to do. The caretakers came to the house and made sure we were up and packing so we could evacuate. A scary situation for sure, but they were as concerned about our safety as their own. As we were driving out, we passed the owner and he stopped us to make sure we had good directions. We're so grateful for their concern.

Highly recommend this place!

Glen Ellen Beauty

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this property is great from the beautiful house to the pool, hot tub and the entire backyard. We had 5 couples that stayed in the house and all agreed it was the perfect place to stay. Exceptionally clean and well maintained with everything working, no issues with anything. Ideal for groups of 8-10. Our only regret is that we did not stay longer. Definitely would rent this property again

Our weekend in Glen Ellen

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing! My group enjoyed every bit of it including the treehouse, pool and hot tub. The location was perfect for our itinerary and fellow travelers in our group that stayed elsewhere flocked to our house for a swim and a visit. My mother loved that "her house" was the best!!!

Private setting, immaculate house

  • 5 of 5

4 couples stayed in the Glen Ellen Stone retreat for a long weekend. The setting was lovely and private. The house was immaculate and there was plenty of room for the 8 of us. When we returned from a day of wine tasting/touring, we utilized the large updated kitchen, outdoor grilling area, pool, game room and fire pit. We would stay there again!

Very Large and clean!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very spacious and provided privacy for couples. The hot tub, pool and grill were in great working order. The kitchen was an excellent size and there was a second refrigerator in the garage which helped with managing our groceries. There is not an icemaker but plenty of ice was provided and the extra refrigerator allowed us to stockpile a little extra ice. The beds and pillows were very comfortable and there were plenty of seating for dinners! We come to Wine Country every other year and will be renting this home again!

Wonderful property!!

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start? The owners have thought of everything to accommodate guests and the host when you get there is so helpful and welcoming. The pool and hot tub are perfect and so well kept. The bunkhouse is such a fun added amenity. The game room adds a lot of fun to any evening. The fire pit is such a great addition and so easy to use. All of the bedrooms and baths are perfect size. We had 4 couples staying and there was more than enough room to fit all of us. Glen sellen js literally a 5 min walk away which is so convenient. Seriously can't wait to visit again soon!!
