Guestbook comments from the owner

The Sage Hen was the perfect setting for a relaxing Christmas week. Thanks, Ron, for teaming up with Lu Watters to provide this tranquil retreat in the lovely rock gardens Lu built. The view, the grounds, the decor and your hospitality combined with Lu's history and positive legacy made for a wonderful backdrop for our family memory.

Our Holiday Stay

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I booked the Sage Hen for the holidays. The place was immaculate and looks exactly like the pictures, so you know just what you're getting. We loved sitting by the fire and being able to cook meals at home instead of going out to eat every night. It was also in close proximity to the freeway, wineries and beach. I would recommend this property to anyone that wants a stress free stay in a beautiful location.

Suited our needs perfectly!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for having us in your lovely home. It was clean and comfortable and as good, if not better, than portrayed in the photos. I have rented on HomeAway several times and your home was the best equipped (especially the kitchen) of all we have stayed in!

Your hospitality was much appreciated! We'll be back....

Charming and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here when my son attended orientation at Sonoma State University. Very charming, elegant, comfortable, and peaceful. You feel like you are in the mountains with all the landscaping yet are close to everything in the Rohnert Park area without seeming like you are. We will definitely stay again when we are in the area and explore more towards the coast.

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great stay here. The home was beautiful and cozy. Ron was excellent to work with, and very accommodating. The location was perfect, close to freeway access and it sensed to be central to everything we wanted to do. The home was well equipped with everything we could have possibly needed. We can't wait to be back!

Beautiful quiet oasis

  • 5 of 5

Ron is just the best man. I booked this vacation rental at the last minute and he was so accomodating. I have booked rentals all over the world and was impressed by the quality of the furniture in the home. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need and basic such as seasoning etc were there although we never cooked. The kitcen is nicely appointed with granite and nice appliances. The bathrooms are beautiful. the livingroom has nice high end furntiture a fireplace and a Bose sound system. Everything is first rate. The house is large, comfortable and quiet. While the pictures look beautiful, they really don't do the place justice. The house is situated in a park like setting. The rental is peaceful and private. I look forward to returning. My only regret is that I didn't get to spend enough time enjoying this beautifl property as we were gone alot.

A peaceful retreat in a spa like setting!

  • 5 of 5

This was an excellent place to get away from the hustle and bustle of San Francisco. We stayed in the main house and it was immaculate and well furnished. The property surrounding the house in park like and very private. The owners were very accomodating and I would highly recommend this as a place to stay. If you have a large party, there is more than one house to rent. Very clean and relaxing. We will stay again if in the area.
