Gorgeous northern Alexander Valley setting overlooking vineyards with gorgeous in ground pool and patio/garden area featuring hot tub on deck. Only 1 mile to Russian River, 5 min. to Cloverdale, and 20 min. to Healdsburg. Near dozens of wineries.
Starling's Rest is located on a hillside overlooking the northern Alexander Valley area. In the summer, the bridge over the Russian River is open in Asti, making the drive from Healdsburg/Geyserville only 15 minutes.
Nearby is the Russian River, wineries, restaurants, Lake Sonoma, Anderson Valley (originally famous for their apples, but now it's award winning Pinot Noir! Dont miss Gowan's apple cider).
Our guests drive through a stone gate and just a few hundred feet up the hillside to Starling's Rest. A large front deck accents the front of the home and offers sunset view of the west.
Enter into the large great room, featuring living area with tv, dvd. The new gourmet kitchen, remodeled in 2013, offers a delight to any wine country getaway where food and wine pairings are a part of the journey! Two ovens, granite counters, island and other amenities offer plenty of room for groceries as well.
The dining area is open and to the right of the kitchen, roomy for 8-10 guests.
Next is the family room with large stone fireplace, and sofas and chairs -- another great spot to gather around the fire, just off the kitchen.
In the back of the house are beautifully landscaped grounds with large lawn area, in ground pool, deck and hot tub.
In the late fall and winter months, thousands of starlings swirl and rest in the trees above. Deer, quail and rabbits also live near and visit the hillside.
An in ground solar heated pool and seven person hot tub, along with quality outdoor furniture are provided.
The vineyard views at the front of the home are best enjoyed in the morning, due to the west facing location, perfect for coffee, juice or continental breakfast. The stars are amazing here. Starling's Rest is in a pocket of little or no light pollution. The property owner provides you with a telescope for star gazing. Take a visual ride on the milky way and get lost in the country, even if it's just for a weekend. SCP# 0226

Had a great time. The house is well appointed and has everything you might need. Located just 5 minutes from downtown Cloverdale and has great views of the countryside.
Great weekend at Starling's rest. The house is as described and pictured. The views and kitchen even better! We also appreciated the series of books, movies and board games that were available for use. Would stay here again and recommend to others.
