Very Secluded, private, forested location!! Our 1960's vintage rustic mountain cabin is tucked deep into the forest, surrounded by 100' tall firs. Located in the mountains midway between Napa & Sonoma valley's. 1.5 hours from San Francisco, in the heart of the wine country, a short drive via windy country roads to neighboring towns of Calistoga, St. Helena, Glen Ellen, Kenwood, & Sonoma, and numerous parks for hiking.

Matt was so easy to work with and very communicative about our stay. The house is a bit remote, but generally close enough to Calistoga and other nearby towns. As a group of 4 (2 couples) we fit nicely in the home and everything we required was provided. MANY kitchen amenities which were greatly appreciated.

Matt's place is a charming and secluded hideaway. Just a short drive to Calistoga but in a lovely secluded spot. Matt is a great host. He left food and wine and lots of tips and then was able to help out organising a neighbour helping with a quick taxi run. Top host!

Matt was an absolutely lovely and accommodating host. We had a last minute addition to our group and he was very gracious about it. His home is adorable and set up to be very user friendly and welcoming, with an incredibly well-outfitted kitchen and wonderful outdoor spaces. We mostly used it to sleep, but it was convenient to everything we tried to do in the valley and spacious enough to comfortably house 5 of us for the weekend. We had a fantastic time - thanks again!

Matt's place is remarkable. It's very comfortable and has everything you need for a memorable stay. Being right in the middle between Santa Rosa and Calistoga is extremely convenient for winery visits, restaurants, and other shopping. Matt makes it extremely easy to get in and out, and is very clear and informative to answer any questions making suggestions.

What an incredible home - so much personality and fun things to admire from the statues in bird cages, to bowling balls, to the gardens and fountain. We were greeted with thoughtful notes all over the house too. The beds are comfy and the kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to make great meals. Lovely home and renting from Matt was a pleasure.

The place is secluded and close to Calistoga. Matt provided excellent and detailed instructions for getting to the house and was very responsive. The garden is full of interesting things and dense with plants. The garden cottage was a treat, and the favored place to sleep. The kitchen was large and very well equipped. After cooking, we ate on the deck, which was like sitting in the treetops. We especially enjoyed the wood stove, nothing like a fire to take the chill off. Everything was neat and clean. We had a great stay.

Matt couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating, and the house itself is unforgettable! Great experience, end-to-end. If you're visiting the area, staying at Matt's is a must!

Matt User ProfileMatt is a superhost.

We are professionals who love to travel, surf, and Art of all kinds. We love this house for its secluded forested location. This house is perfect for staying 'in' and just hanging out, enjoying the garden and fountain, and seeing the sites so close by. Bothe state park is a short drive for fantastic hikes, and amazing wineries in every direction.
