Welcome to our family cabin, a 1960's vintage rustic mountain cabin, 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.

This rugged forested location makes Cell Phone service unreliable, and there is NO internet. There is, however, a Land-Line provided for your incoming and outgoing calls…or to make a restaurant reservation. This is an ideal location for couples or small groups wanting seclusion and comfort, surrounded by nature…all within a short drive to anywhere in the wine country.
