We rented the place for a small wedding reception (around 30 guests). The best way I can describe the place is using the words of my mom when she first saw the place:
"Wow! With a setting like this you don't need to worry about anything else in the wedding. It's so beautiful, the guests won't care about anything else".
It's an amazing place, amazing views, beautiful house with personality, and a unique venue. The host, Karen, was helpful, showing us the place, giving us inventory lists, and suggesting vendors for wedding chairs etc.
The event was great success, and all the guests (as well as us) enjoyed the place. The way there is a bit challenging, but all the guests found their way to the event and back.
It is a beautiful house and perfect for gatherings of family and friends. We had a wonderful time. The view is breathtaking, and the hot tub was a lot of fun. The house was in great shape and Karen and her property manager was fantastic hosts.
The house was incredible, everything in the description and pictures and more. My friends and I had a fantastic time, and had everything we needed. We will definitely be back!!
I look forward to your return!
Amazing place, Pleasant time. The house is a fascinating history tour full of curiosities and remarkable objects. The location and views, especially at sunrise and sunset, are without parallel. Karen laid on my wife's favorite flowers and wine, and John the property manager was on hand and very attentive when we arrived late in the evening. The house, hot tub, pool, Grill were all well prepared. The fridge was stocked with beer and chilled glasses, and fresh fruit was in the bowl. We went forget to stay, and I hope we'll be back.
We loved this house so much, we stayed an additional two more days! It was perfect for our family to stay while we had a wedding a Wildwood Acres nearby. I would highly recommend this house for a romantic getaway, family retreat, or wedding. It was perfect!
This house is a must for any event, wedding, romantic getaway. We enjoyed every single part of the house: the endless pool, hot tub, sauna. We especially loved the kitchen! Not only is the house amazing, but the views of the entire SF bay area. Hands down, this is the best place to stay in the Bay area, even California. There was plenty of parking, enough for at least 10 cars, and enough places to sleep for about 12. Only thing to be worried about is there is only 2.5 baths. All in all, hands down, this is the best place to stay in the Bay area, even California. We will definitely recommend this place to friends and family! @drjameshuang
The Schneider home is amazing! You get the seclusion of being north of Napa even though this property is hidden in the mountains of Lafayette. The views are second to none. The home itself is unique and has amenities like wifi, pool table, HBO, sauna, endless pool, jacuzzi positioned to admire the scenery while taking a dip. John came by to show us the facilities and encouraged that we use all of them. We actually just sat in the shade and relaxed for 2 days straight. Our dog Haley was super curious and explores every inch of surronding area.
Some people think the drive up the mile long drive way can be daunting, but it actually is very relaxing. Turn off the radio, roll down the windows and listen to nature as you creep up the foliage covered street. Very calming in my opinion.
This great property is only matched by the great lengths Karen went to make this a memorable stay. We arrived to freshly cut roses, a bottle of champagne and a fridge stocked with beer, OJ and water. Karen called to check in and we felt she really cared about us having a unique experience.
Hope you are able to return!
The host was wonderful in communicating and was very helpful. The house was immaculate upon arrival.
Absolutely gorgeous house with a breathtaking view. Would recommend this spot to all my friends for a relaxing vacation or a private getaway. Karen went out of her way to make me feel welcome and was a fantastic host.
We were living outside the country when selecting a venue for our wedding. Karen and Doug's home was truly magnificent, and private. The views are spectacular, sunrise and sunset over the hills and valleys are breathtaking and endless. We felt as we are on top of the world!
The house was extremely well appointed with everything anyone would possibly need and While the hosts were not involved in the check in process, they had staff available and a detailed guide book for the home and the general area. Ourselves and our guest thoroughly enjoyed the ridiculously comfortable beds, and the other amenities such as pool, hot tub and sauna, pianos, pool table. There is plenty of space to gather as well as intimate little nooks to relax quietly in. The home is beautiful and a bit quirky with it's decor and provides interesting conversations and photo opportunities. We are absolutely thrilled to have had the experience of getting married and spending a 3 day weekend with our friends and family in this Magnificent Home!
Dawn and Julian, we were so happy to be part of your joyous occasion!
Karen & Doug are our favorite guests! They've stayed with us three times and we enjoy having them and their family here! Always fun to talk to and we love the visits from their dog Chloe. We couldn't ask for better guests! Thanks again!
We love Karen and Doug! They're such wonderful guests and have just stayed with us for a second time, which we appreciate so, so much! They're super clean, respectful, and fun to talk to! We hope to see you again and again! Thanks again!!!
Thank you Karen and Doug for being such WONDERFUL guests! We enjoyed meeting you and talking with you and hope so much that you will be back to stay with us in the future! My favorite part about hosting guests is meeting great people like yourselves! Thank you also for making the clean up of The Cottage such a breeze for me :)
