I had a getaway weekend with family and friends, and this was everything I had hoped for and more! The Beijen's home was beautiful-the pictures don't do enough justice! It was such a nice, serene, and open space that I thoroughly enjoyed. I found it impressive that everything was easily labeled-from the kitchen drawers to the numerous light switches, so that it was easy to locate what you needed. Laurie was super responsive to my inquiries, comments, and any assistance we needed!
We had the most incredible long weekend at Laurie's home in Geyserville! There were eight people in our group - two couples, and four singles, and everyone slept comfortably and had plenty of space to relax.
The property is gorgeous, and if you can believe it, the pictures don't due it justice. From the gourmet kitchen, to the infinity pool and hot tub, to the deck overlooking wine country, to the warm and inviting social spaces -- we couldn't have asked for more.
The actual location was also fantastic. On our first day, we chartered a bus to take us around the region for a series of tastings. We visited Silver Oak, deLorimier, Trione Vineyards and Mercury, and then ended our day with the most delicious dinner at Diavola Pizzeria (a great recommendation from Laurie)! An unexpected bonus for this restaurant is they didn't charge us a corkage fee since we brought in wines from Mercury which is a local wine producer just next door! I don't know if they always do this, but it was much appreciated!
On Saturday, we visited more wineries, including Opus One and (website hidden) Vineyards. We also enjoyed a fun picnic at V. Sattui Winery. And then on Sunday, mother nature generously gave us a beautiful day, and we grilled out on the deck and enjoyed a few hours of downtime before heading back to San Francisco.
We could not have had a more perfect weekend, and are so thankful we had the good fortune of renting from Laurie. She was the perfect host. We were in constant contact as soon as I inquired about her property. Once our reservation was accepted, Laurie sent an incredibly comprehensive and helpful welcome letter that provided recommendations on what to do and where to go, as well as how to best enjoy her home.
We left feeling relaxed and rejuvenated, and we can't wait to return! Thanks so much Laurie!
