Rod & I enjoy hosting at our beautiful home. We think this would be a wonderful experience for all, and a great way to meet new people.
This was one of the most beautiful homes I've been in. Donna welcomed us in and gave us a wonderful tour. This was a weekend getaway for me to propose to my girlfriend, so I wanted to stay somewhere special. This definitely hit the spot. Hopefully we can stay with Donna and Rod again someday.
Donna and Rod's home is absolutely beautiful. We had a wonderfully getaway. We loved relaxing on the deck, cooking on the grill, watching the sunset, and hanging with Brandy and Gyro. Can't want to go back!
Donna and Rod have an amazingly beautiful home! It's deeper into the woods than I expected but that's what made it so amazing. I'm a city girl so driving on winding roads with no street lights after a long weddig was a bit scary for me. But once you get to the house it's a wonderful oasis! Donna and Rod were so friendly and welcoming. I highly recommend their place!
6 star raring for so many reasons! The exquisite house, gardens, the interior and exterior art and tranquil setting is magnificent. Rod and Donna are amazing hosts, generous hearts, and there was no detail that they missed regarding cleanliness and amenities in our room and in the house proper. I am in the service industry hosting people and they are naturals at providing an excellent experience. My husband and I especially appreciated their engaging conversation, sharing wine and tasting Donna's fabulous cooking! This is a "Platinum" level property and experience.....complete with friendly pets! We thank you for making our cycling weekend in the woods such a relaxing and tranquil time.
What a beautiful place to stay! The place was tranquil and peaceful, close to both Napa, Sonoma, and the other wine valleys. Rod and Donna were beautiful hosts and we will definitely be back.
We only stayed one night, that was the one thing that was negativ. Place was beautiful, super clean and Donna&Rod were sweet and helpful. Next time we'll stay longer.
Staying with Donna and Rod is like having the best of both worlds. You have the comfort of home and the luxury of a private resort. Within hours of getting here, we wished we could give them a 6-star review!
Their house is BEAUTIFUL, and words can't describe the view. The room is nice, clean, comfortable and private. Donna is absolutely amazing in her hospitality and will do everything to make your stay comfortable and memorable. Rod will provide great company and even better stories and just make you have a good time. They went above and beyond to share their home with us and we were so touched with their warmth.
If you prefer to be private, the home provides all avenues to do so. You can be on your own or with this wonderful couple. It's really a win win! We had such a lovely time here that any other AirBnB experience or a hotel will now have to try very hard to impress us.
The only downside is you would hardly want to leave the place. We had to try very hard to convince ourselves to checkout the Wine country as we never really wanted to leave. :)
Whether you are traveling to Santa Rosa, Calistoga, Napa or any other surrounding area, stay here and you will remember this trip for a long long time. If i ever travel any where near them again, this is where I'd want to stay!
We enjoyed staying as this magnificent house. We loved the view from the terrace so much we ended up spending more time there than going wine tasting in the area. At night there is a good view of the stars and a gas fire ring to keep you warm. Donna even took us to the great local farmer's market on Saturday where we picked up picnic supplies. The house is VERY clean and comfortable.
We were new to AirBnB and had a great experience in wine country staying in Rod and Donna's beautiful home. Everything about the experience was easy, with Donna's great communication and her thoughtfulness. The house is amazing, and the rooms were private and clean. The Stevenson's are super nice people who went out of their way to us feel welcomed, especially enjoying a glass of wine on their patio under the stars. We would stay there again.
Donna & Rod were fantastic hosts and their house and property is stunning. Highly recommended!
Even one night at the Stevenson’s feels like a vacation. All rooms in the home have much to please the eye. The home itself is artfully designed and each room is filled with original painting and other artwork. Every room also has a beautiful view out the windows. The two available bedrooms have very comfortable beds. One has doors out to a patio area, the other a window seat from which to view the water art and one of the garden areas. The landscaping is filled with many inviting areas for reading, conversing, enjoying the view and yard art or just relaxing. Lloyd went to high school with Donna and Donna and Pat worked together in the 1970’s. We have remained good friends over the years. After Rod proposed to Donna, she brought him to our group of friends for “approval” before she gave her final yes. Obviously we approved and he became a good friend as well. We have traveled together and shared many of life’s events with the Stevenson’s over the years and expect to share many more fun times in the future. We have always enjoyed our stays at their place and believe that others will feel the same way after their stay. Lloyd and Pat Shuman
If you want a quiet, spectacular place to hide away between visits to the surrounding wineries, then this is your place. Donna and Rod are two of the nicest people you'll ever meet; funny, congenial, easy going, and great at meeting new friends. And their home is set in the pristine woods of Sonoma County but still has a wonderful view with plenty of sunshine. I love to sit on the deck and absorb the serene beauty of the property, have a glasss of wine, share another spectacular meal. Two thumbs up!
