About this listing
Located in the heart of beautiful Sonoma Valley, our gated 2 acre home site includes a barn that has a wonderful, private 1 bedroom, 1 bath and great room apartment above the winery. The "barn" is constructed with large timbers connected by mortise and tenons with pegs, a feature of most early American barns. It has a spacious covered porch with a big table and wicker chairs overlooking the field across the winter creek. You'll enjoy the quiet, the views of horses, and rolling hills and vineyards. I lived in the barn for three years, while we were building the new house. I just loved the tree house feeling of the space!
The bedroom overlooks the expansive lawn leading to the tree lined creek. The bedroom has a comfortable queen bed, and ample closet space.The gracious high ceiling living room offers a queen sleeper in the seating arrangement.
This delicious space is located over our home winery. I hope you'll enjoy seeing our climate controlled barrel room and our covered crush pad. Please enjoy a complimentary bottle of our wine upon your arrival (and of course more if you like!!), along with fresh fruit, muffins, granola, milk, butter, tea and coffee and ...which you can brew. We hope your visit will be one you will always remember, and that you will return!
Sonoma's Valley of the Moon is well known and enjoyed by outdoor enthusiasts from all over the world. Nearby are 10,000 acres of majestic park land with trails for hiking and biking.
Kenwood is a small (pop. 1,200) pastoral wine country village. We are within walking distance of exceptional restaurants and wineries, and well...just walks. Anywhere you walk is beautiful, and our streets have little traffic.
Our property has much native American History. It is located between where the Wappo tribe located their village, and their ceremonial site! We have found many artifacts here.
You can relax and enjoy the tranquil peaceful, park-like natural setting, or you can visit our well known Kenwood and Glen Ellen attractions. We look forward to hosting you!
Please feel free to wander around our 2 acres. There are three gates that will let you get down to the creek. Our patio is available for you if you want. FYI if you are looking for a dog friendly listing, please find ours at Red Barn Cottage!!
Interaction with Guests
We love meeting new people, and as such we are happy to interact with our guests as much as they like. If you would like to join us for a tasting of our wines, have a tour through our barrel room and crush pad...let me know. We realize that some people want to be alone, or have so little time they have not the time to visit with us. However if you do...please let me know. I try to read minds, but I am not always very good at it!!
FYI...it is so quiet here many of our guests have complained that they over slept! That said we are just 1/2 mile off the main highway through the valley so we a gated very private property, yet close to everything!!
We are happy to give you directions, answer any questions, help you plan your activities, make reservations, suggest a tour or anything else you may need! There are taxis here, and Uber.
