Great Home Base for Wine Country
We stayed in the house with a group of seven and it worked perfectly for us. Its location between Calistoga and Healdsburg provides ideal access to both Napa and Sonoma wine regions. The spacious interior, multiple decks and hot tub make it great for hanging out, with many different areas to gather. The decks are one of the highlights, with spectacular sunsets and peaceful mornings. The kitchen is well equipped, with everything you need, has a great layout and features a very nice stove/oven. We cooked in three straight nights and it worked out great. The bedrooms are comfortable, with good beds, and the secluded mountaintop setting makes for quiet sleeping. There are two showers, both of which worked well, but this should be taken into account for larger groups. Our group definitely thought that the road/drive up to the house is worth noting. The road up is very steep - it is the price that you have to pay to get to those fantastic views - and could be a challenge for some drivers and present difficulties in inclement weather. We were driving a large cargo-type passenger van and it was about as large a vehicle as you would want to take up the road. It is not a major issue, but it definitely something that prospective visitors should know about. Overall, we would highly recommend this house for families or groups. It was great for our long weekend in wine country.
