Welcome to your Mountain retreat/getaway to awe and wonder evoked by beautiful views and the great memories you'll create here! The radio show On Being, aired an interview with Esther Sternberg called "The Science of HEALING PLACES." In it, Esther Sternberg, an immunologist and pioneer in the field of environmental psychology, related her excitement about discovering that there are measurable physiological and neuroscientific bases to the feeling of AWE and WONDER evoked by BEAUTIFUL VIEWS or by places that trigger GOOD MEMORIES. This is the setting for your restoration and transformation: "I firmly believe from what I have seen that this is the chosen spot of all the earth as far as nature is concerned," horticulturist Luther Burbank said of Sonoma County

Great Views...Great Wines...Great Food! Napa & Sonoma counties are all about our Mother Nature’s great views, great wines (lots of vineyards!) and great food (great spas too!). And the North Bay Bohemian area of Cazadero (Northwestern Sonoma County) where the Sky Suite is situated, is no exception! I eagerly await your visit !!!

About 75 miles north of San Francisco lies the Russian River Valley, which was nominated as one of the Wine Regions of the Year by Wine Enthusiast magazine in 2011. In the heart of beautiful coastal Sonoma County Wine Country you’ll find The Sky Suite on Sunrise Mountain encircled by sun, stars, moon and massive redwoods.
“Few wine regions evoke more vivid impressions of great wine, stunning landscapes and friendly people than the Russian River Valley. World-class Zinfandels and Petite Sirahs abound, often from gnarled, centenarian vineyards. Rhône varieties, both red and white, as well as great Chardonnays join the valley’s crown jewel: Pinot Noir, now coming off a stellar string of vintages” (Wine Enthusiast magazine in 2011).

  • Dr Joe was an incredible host! He met us upon arrival and gave us a quick run down of the studio before giving us our own space. The studio was absolutely beautiful especially the shower, deck, views and hot tub. The bed was also extremely comfortable.

    We will certainly be back!

    Thank you Dr. Joe!!

    Best,

I stayed here after a business trip and it was just the Richard I needed. Dr Joe (email hidden) who thoroughly reviewed all the amenities of the apartment once I arrived. He truly went out of his way to help make my experience great. I highly recommend staying here!

  • Dr. Joe was very kind and courteous. He tries to think of everything to help his guests feel comfortable! The guest house was clean, peaceful, and lovely. And the hot tub on the deck was one of the highlights of my trip!

    June 2014
  • Dr Joe's hideaway is perfect in every way! He is the sweetest man who has perfected the friendly, helpful welcome combined with utter respect for privacy.

  • Dr Joe (email hidden). He met us on arrival and gave us a tour of the Studio with great tips on how to use the amenities and shared the house rules. Dr Joe made us feel very welcome. The neighborhood was very quiet and we enjoyed taking our pups for a walk down the road.

    The Sunrise Studio Guest House was exactly as advertised, private and cosy. The studio and the whole deck area including hot tub were very clean and well taken care of.

    We cannot wait to go back!
    Thanks Dr. Joe

  • We had a fantastic time! Dr. Joe was an amazing host. The location is perfect if you want to do anything near the Russian river.

    June 2014
  • We had the most amazing time at the sunrise studio! Our already high expectations were blown away. The studio had everything we were hoping for, and we never wanted to leave.
    This really is the perfect mountain getaway. It's private, quiet and dark, so at night you can relax and rest in the hottub while watching the stars. We felt more rested after this trip than we have in a while, and we even took full advantage of everything the area has to offer (which is a lot!).
    Dr. Joe was the most gracious host, and he made sure that every amenity was provided and every need or want accommodated. By the end of our first day we were already planning our trip back next year.
    Nothing felt like a far drive because the area is so beautiful, so if you're planning on spending most of your time on the coast, in the redwoods, or in Healdsburg wine tasting, look no further. This is the perfect place!

    June 2014
  • Friendly host, beautiful location in the trees, and everything went smoothly as promised. Quick to respond, great instructions and directions and just a wonderful escape!

  • Dr. Joe was (email hidden). He put so much detail into his guest house and it's just fabulous. He gave us a quick tour and explained everything we needed to know. When we asked, Dr. Joe gave us some pointers about where to go and what to do. We had full privacy afterwards, but he was still easy to reach!

    The studio is wonderful! It has all one could ask for. We used the grill for our meals and it was perfect. The bed is incredibly comfortable, we slept like babies. The deck is amazing with so many places to sit down and relax. The hot tub was fantastic with an amazing view of trees and mountains. We wanted to stay so much longer!

    May 2014
  • We had a wonderful time at the Sunrise Mountain Studio! Dr Joe was so accommodating and helped guide us to some wonderful places for food and drinks. The view from the deck was stunning and sitting in the hot tub under the trees and stars after a day of hiking felt amazing. We highly recommend this space to anyone looking to get away and unwind in peace and tranquility. A word of warning though, we lost cell coverage much earlier than anticipated so be sure to plan ahead and make contact with the host before you get too far off the main highway.
