Description

The space

After a day of trolling for tasty finds (perhaps a new favorite bottle from a family-owned winery or a creamy goat cheese made near the Sonoma Coast or the freshest picks from one of the various farmer's markets), imagine relaxing with a good book and a glass of wine in Bonne Chère's comfortable living room, cooking a feast in the gourmet kitchen, lounging on the spacious deck or taking a soak in the private hot tub.

Inside Bonne Chère, guests will find the home both delightful and modern, with numerous high-end amenities that will lure visitors and keep them coming back time and again. The kitchen is stocked for even the pickiest cook, and includes stainless steel appliances, gas stove, dishwasher, beautiful wood cabinets and tile, and a wine fridge. The living room has a large television, stereo (there is a CD collection available for guests), gas fireplace and ample seating. In both bedrooms, the beds are exceedingly comfortable and made with high-quality linens. The bathroom has modern tile work and a walk-in shower with a window so guests can admire the redwoods and lush hillside while showering (a window curtain can be closed if desired).

Outside Bonne Chère is an extension of the living space. There is outdoor dining, outdoor seating, a gas grill and a private hot tub area. The property continues to wrap around the house to a 'secret' sitting spot, perfect for enjoying a locally roasted cup of Joe or stargazing with a glass of wine. Tucked against a hillside in a Guerneville neighborhood, Bonne Chère feels like its own little private world. Although there are neighbors to both the left and the right, the landscaping around the house and the hillside behind the home provides redwood views and privacy.

Your stay includes a complimentary bottle of wine.

We had an awesome time at Bon Chere. It was just perfect. Home was beautiful and exactly as described. The hot tub was great. So nice to look up at the towering redwoods surrounding the area. The house is close to town but far enough away to be quiet and peaceful. We were there on New Years Eve but it could of been a random Tuesday, it was that quiet. They owners have done a great job of creating a welcoming space. Thank you!

Loved out stay at Bonne Chere! It is set in a beautiful and quiet setting surrounded by trees. The kitchen really is fully stocked with everything you could need to whip up a gourmet meal. Only a short drive to beautiful redwoods and the river. Also convenient for local restaurants and groceries. Very enjoyable!

We had a great stay in this cute little house in Guerneville. Good location and perfect with everything we needed. The hosts even left us a bottle of wine in the fridge which was a great way to start of the vacation.
