After a conference in San Francisco, we wanted a few quiet days in wine country and we found this wonderful retreat! We were two couples and we were joined by my son and his wife for one of the nights. The house accommodated us all beautifully and privately.
The house is memorable with massive picture windows bringing the greenery and the wildlife right into the Great Room and the Master Bedroom. And the site is incredible - high in the mountains surrounded by forest and deer and privacy. Decks provide access to this wonderland on all sides of the house. And there is a terrific hot tub and a babbling brook to complete the relaxing experience.
And yet this Shangri' la is only a 10 minute drive to downtown Sonoma to get that last minute ingredient for dinner ... except you won't have to make such a trip... as the kitchen was so well appointed. Every appliance and spice and condiment known to man was available simply by opening the pantry door.
We weren't even planning on cooking but couldn't resist taking advantage of such a truly well outfitted culinary facility. And the thoughtful addition of champagne, beer, milk and eggs was lovely .. all the necessities of life!
We enjoyed a number of wine tours in Sonoma and Napa and none were more than a half hour drive away. And there were plenty of ideas for excursions included in a massive binder.
A terrific few relaxing days spent in the wilderness with all of the conveniences of home. I look forward to finding an excuse to make another trip to San Francisco soon if only to go back to this delightful Sonoma Mountain House.
Thanks so much. We truly loved it.
Amazing. Once you drive up to the wooded property, you will be thoroughly and pleasantly surprised and impressed.
Completely private property (we never saw another person or house during our whole stay) surrounded by beautiful trees. We had a few small children in our party and they enjoyed running the property and woods the entire weekend.
The house is spacious, clean and wonderfully updated. Hot tub and outdoor shower a major plus.
We hope to stay again soon; the owners were great to work with and made sure the house was just perfect for our weekend getaway.
I am a Bay Area native and have always loved venturing up to Sonoma County to enjoy the outdoor adventure fun, and all that wine country can bring especially amazing food, wine and gathering spots. After searching for over a year, we finally found our dream spot right in Sonoma, just minutes from Glen Ellen and the Sonoma Plaza. We take advantage of all this County has to offer, and want to share it all with you, including our amazing home nestled in the mountains!
