We stayed two nights as part of a California road trip celebrating our 25th anniversary. This was our first visit to "wine country" and we felt we couldn't have made a better choice. The views from the terrace and pool are breathtaking, the animals are a constant source of playful amusement, and Dan was a gracious and helpful host.The apartment felt very private - we enjoyed it so much we cooked dinner both nights in order to eat out on the terrace and watch the beautiful sunset. We liked the location and layout - just be aware that there is a flight of stairs between the entryway/kitchen and the upstairs rooms. Dan and Betsy, whom we unfortunately did not get to meet, have created a true oasis on their large property.They have put a lot of care into making this a true delight - murmuring springs, soft wind chimes, beautifully tended gardens, and a delicious sample of homemade wine. Although just minutes from Santa Rosa and Sonoma wineries, it is a true mountaintop retreat.
