From the dining room enter in the huge living room with a wood burning fireplace and deep, oversized sofas for relaxing conversation. The open floorplan and multiple French doors to the deck and pool allows for gatherings of family and friends to enjoy indoor/outdoor living.

Outside, relax on the comfortable outdoor living room furniture or enjoy a family meal at the gorgeous teak dining table. Cook dinner on the charcoal grill, or light a fire in the outdoor fireplace for toasted marshmallows under the stars. Enjoy the beautiful Sonoma outdoors in the 20 X 45 solar heated pool with automatic heavy-duty electronic pool cover and built in spa, the young orchard with abundance of fruit trees, the children's play structure, the kitchen herb garden, or the large fenced-in vegetable garden filled with produce in season.

The home has four bedrooms: one king, one queen, two twins, a queen plus a crib, and a media room with a comfortable pull-out sofa. Every room has been remodeled within the last 24 months.

The house is very kid friendly with two extra pack n plays, high chairs, lots of toys and kids' books and a child's play structure- however adults are responsible for watching their children given the risks associated with play structures and pools.

Because this is our family country home we discourage large rental parties or heavy entertaining. We wish not to disturb our neighbors in this peaceful, private area. By prior arrangement, a limited number of day guests may be considered.

The spa is accessible year round but will need ~30+ minutes to heat up (longer in colder weather). Pool is also accessible year round but it is solar heated so swimming is most comfortable May- Oct. For an additional fee of $100 per day we can heat the pool for you to your desired temperature in the off season. Full access to property except owners closet and garage which is used for owners storage.

When my son got married at Chateau St. Jean winery, my family stayed in this gorgeous, conveniently located house, which is well-equipped with everything you need for cooking, relaxing, playing, entertaining family and friends. The one level house is very well laid out and the decorating is lovely. Lara told us we were welcome to anything from the garden, so we enjoyed the best tomatoes, beans, and plums I've ever eaten. The front and backyards were even prettier in person than they were in the pictures. We enjoyed our stay!

My family stayed at Lara's home when we went to Kenwood for my wedding. She has a BEAUTIFUL home. The pictures didn't do it justice. The house is surrounded by wonderful, beautiful gardens and a large back yard with a pool and a breathtaking view. We had a lovely time and would stay there again if we go back.

Great house, fantastic pool! We will happily return!

Our group was very NERVOUS about renting via Airbnb. With that said, we could not have a better experience. The pictures of the home were exactly what the house looks like, although the views and the property are much more beautiful in person. When we were sitting in the backyard, we felt like we were experiencing a slice of heaven. We couldn't have a better experience - incredible in every single way!

We loved, loved, loved this house. We spent a wonderful Thanksgiving week here and made memories to last a lifetime. This home is gorgeous and family friendly at the same time. It was a wonderful getaway for my husband and I without 2 adult daughters. The hosts were very helpful about restaurants and winerys in the area. I hated that we had to leave.

Lara's house was, quite literally, my dream home. From the location (wine country) to the view (that backyard!) to the décor inside the home, it was a dream come true. The detailed description is 100% correct, and Lara is very responsive to text messages. We were at the home for a girls' reunion weekend and I couldn't have asked for a better spot to host it. Definitely recommended!
