Planned Winery Tours
We provide our customers with details of local wineries by area with suggestions based on your favorite varietals along with who to ask for at each winery. Makes for a great pre-planned tour should you not want to have to do the work yourself. Ask us about it when booking the Ladder House.
Have more than just wine on your mind? Sonoma Valley is alive with activities and places to go. Visit nearby Morton’s Warm Springs for a swim and picnic by the creek, spend the day out on the coast and have dinner with a view of the ocean, take a bike ride and enjoy the picturesque local scenery or go for a hike in nearby Jack London park or Sugarloaf Ridge park. Sugarloaf is also home to the Robert Ferguson Observatory where you can spend an evening star gazing. Hike Mount Baldwin, enjoy the majestic views of Northern California and spy Golden Gate Bridge on a clear day. Sonoma Square is just a 15 minute drive and you can usually find a major event going on each weekend. We have put together a book of activities which you can enjoy while staying at our peaceful cottage with each activity rated by amount of time required. From a two hour jaunt to day long adventures, we hope you will find several activities to enjoy.
There are several great restaurants in Kenwood, all providing a great meal and ambiance. Slightly farther away in Glen Ellen (5 min drive) are additional establishments offering a great variety of offerings, all top shelf. Or, venture a little farther south to Sonoma or north to Santa Rosa for yet more options. For more dining details, see our website activities page.
Access to the whole house is part of this rental. Includes back deck with hot tub as well as washer / dryer, etc.
Interaction with guests
We like to go over the top in helping our guests plan their stays at the Ladder house including helping schedule special events at the wineries, a local wine and food pairing, schedule a local limo driver for a day and provide detailed suggestions of which wineries, restaurants, breweries, local hiking and biking locations and other events you may enjoy. We will even tell who to ask for at most locations so as to get that personal touch.
Other things to note
There are more than fifteen vineyards / tasting rooms within walking distance (~ 1/2 mile) of our little cottage and another twenty plus wineries within biking distance (~3-5 miles). If you are coming for the wine, you have picked the right location. Start by enjoying a complimentary bottle of Mayo Family Wine the day you arrive. You're likely to want to visit the local tasting rooms and buy some more once you have tried it. They are our local favorite. However, we will be more than happy to send you a detailed list of favorites based on which varietals you and your group enjoy most.
