Enjoy staying in the original farmhouse on our country property which was once an operating apple orchard. It has the old Sonoma county charm but is newly remodeled for ease of living. While it does have a country relaxed vibe about it, this space is top quality understated luxury. For ex. highest-end luxury mattresses, leather and down sofas, white marble counter tops, new farmhouse ceramic sinks and over-sized ceramic bathtub.
It has 3 bedrooms. The first two have high quality queen-size mattresses and dressers for your clothes. The super-charming "sleeping porch" (fully-heated) has a full-size and twin size bed. The newly remodeled kitchen has everything you need to cook, including our farm fresh eggs (usually) and whatever other goodies are in bounty at our farm at the time. There is a big family room with comfy couches, a flat screen smart tv, games, a table for dining or playing cards. There is a newly landscaped backyard which is fenced in and completely private. It has a decomposed granite dining area, a fountain, table with seating and umbrella and propane bbq. There is also a small veggie-flower garden for the guests use. The house itself is set back from the quiet country road with a large tree filled front yard. The private backyard is surrounded by beautiful redwood trees. Our family home is at the far other end of the property.
Our property is located in the Twin Hills area of Sebastopol. This desirable area is known for its rolling hills, apple orchards, Christmas Tree Farms, and vineyards. There are many beautiful walks to take right out the door. While you may feel far away from it all, downtown is less than a ten minute drive, and door to door we are twenty minutes to the beaches and gorgeous coast line of Bodega Bay.
There are three main wine tasting routes nearby. For chardonnays and pinot noirs you can stay right in our appellation, the Russian River Valley, and Olivet Road to River Rd. Healdsburg is Dry Creek and Alexander Valley for merlots, zinfandels and cabernet sauvignon. All of these and more are nearby. Right in Sebastopol there is Iron Horse Vineyards, Lynmar, Balletto, Russian River Vineyards, Dutton Family Wines and many more.
You will need a car to get around as there is no public transportation in our rural neighborhood.
There is such a variety of things to do in our area. Sebastopol is famous for its award winning wineries, restaurants and antique shops. It also has an artsy bohemian feel, and many are dedicated to the slow food movement. Neighbors regularly trade their bounties with each other, such as milk, honey, eggs and veggies. There is also the beaches and cliffs of Bodega Bay (we provide beach chairs, towels, etc.), and great swimming and picnicking at the Russian River. You can hike through beautiful redwoods at Armstrong Woods. And of course visit countless wineries and gourmet restaurants. We can fill you in on our favorite s. While we have dogs, cats and farm animals on the property no animals are allowed in the cottage. Guests may not bring pets either. This ensures the cottage stays clean and allergen-free.+ More
