About the property

6BR/6BA (Sleeps 12-15) Modern Ranch-Style Home in Heart of CA Wine Country

*** FIRE UPDATE - Oct 17th ***

Miraculously, our Wine Country Ranch on Sharp Rd in Calistoga and our section of the beautiful "Mayastoga" valley 1,200 feet above made it through the fires without harm! We are so grateful as many in neighboring areas were not as fortunate. The town of Calistoga also escaped and visible fire damage is minimal. Thank you to so many former guests who have sent notes of support! Please come visit our town and "Mayastoga Ranches."

Modern luxury meets Napa Valley Wine Country ranch style in this beautifully 17 acre property nestled in a private valley in the Mayacamas Mountains 1,200 feet above Calistoga. We call it "Mayastoga." Learn more about "Mayastoga" and "Mayastoga Ranches" by searching the web.

The home is an elegant yet comfortable fully updated and beautifully decorated 6br/6ba modern ranch-style home on the border between Napa and Sonoma Counties. The ranch is within minutes of the best of both Napa and Sonoma wineries and is the perfect place for family reunions, groups of friends, or companies looking for a private, yet accessible retreat.

Walking into the home you'll be immediately impressed by the warm oak flooring accented with beautiful art and mid-century modern touches. The main gathering area to the right as you walk in includes a slate fireplace, large Italian sofa and designer finishes as well as a second seating area with four club chairs overlooking the grounds with large Live Oak trees.

The adjacent dining area comfortably seats 12 and is also steps away from the fully stocked chef's kitchen, set apart by a 165 year-old 5" slab of California Walnut used for additional seating or a convenient serving area. With its commercial sized refrigerator and freezer, two dishwashers, 150 bottle wine refrigerator, Miele automatic coffee maker, and virtually every small appliance imaginable, any chef will love this kitchen!

The home includes six large suits, each with its own private bath. Five of the suites have King Beds with extremely comfortable mattresses and linens. One suite has two queen-size beds for additional sleeping capacity. The bathrooms are fully stocked with luxurious Restoration Hardware towels and Napa Valley Soap Company bath amenities. Four of the bedrooms have 44" wall or furniture-mounted LED TVs with DirecTV. All have blackout drapes for complete privacy and comfort.

The home has a 3-zone central air and heat system, Wi-Fi, DirecTV, and a Sonos sound system that channels your music throughout the home, as well as on the front patio and rear pool area.

The outside backyard of the property includes a 1-acre fenced area with large, deep fully modern solar heated pool with built-in lounging deck and spa surrounded by Restoration Hardware furniture and numerous shade umbrellas for relaxing days. By the pool area is a large Weber propane grill. Sonos speakers provide the opportunity to create that perfect ambience!

The front deck is also complete with Restoration Hardware outdoor sofa, dining table and lounge chairs for relaxing and enjoying the view of the spectacular Mayacamas Mountains. Along with the Sonos speakers, umbrellas and propane fire pit, it's the perfect place to relax in the sun listening to your favorite artists, enjoy breakfast as the sun comes up, or entertain guests for a truly spectacular gourmet dinner.

Down the walkway is a regulation-size newly refinished tennis court. The property comes complete with ample sports equipment, hiking trails, tree swing & hammock and so much more.

We've heard from so many who have rented this property that they originally arrived with restaurant reservations for each night of their stay only to end up canceling them and staying in to cook and enjoy the private time. They just didn't want to leave the property!

About Arthur

I was born in Midland, Texas to an oil man and his wife. The forth of four children and only boy. I attended Texas A&M and love to follow Aggie sports. I currently live between Texas and California, and prefer the dry Summers of California to the humid Texas Summer.

Arthur purchased this estate in 2011

Why Arthur chose Calistoga

The minute a saw this property it reminded me of the Hill Country in Texas, with its large Oak trees, rock outcroppings, and Manzanita. Built by Richard and Marjorie Patterson (parents of the writer, James Patterson) in 1981, the residence was in pristine condition, although it was in need of an update. It took the better of 2011 to fully gut and remodel the interior of home to its current condition. In 2014 the pool and rear yard area of the house was remodeled.

I love this property because it is so peaceful and quiet, yet very close to Calistoga. This is the perfect retreat I love to entertain and this is the perfect house and property for it.

What makes this estate unique

1. Private estate large enough for a big family to all be together without being on top of each other

2. It is 7 minutes down the hill to downtown Calistoga, yet when you are at the property it feels like you are in the middle of the country.

3. The property is perfectly situated to take advantage of the entire Wine Country, both in Sonoma and Napa Counties.

4. We accept Bitcoin for payment!

The perfect home for our 50th birthday celebration!

  • 5 of 5

From the first contact with the owner, to the smallest details of the home, this was an excellent experience. The owner is extremely responsive and helpful, he usually responds within a few hours. We were a group of 10 adults, comprised of 5 couples, and the floorplan was ideal. It’s difficult to find a layout or a home that has amenities where everyone feels they stayed in equal or even rooms, but this home has that to offer. All of the bedrooms are en suite, the linens are high quality, the decor is beautiful. The main living areas are welcoming and easy for a group this size. We used the kitchen extensively, had a BBQ one night, spent time in the pool, by the fire pit, really just enjoyed all of the lovey spaces that the home has. The location was also good for our group. It’s just 10 minutes from Calistoga, quiet and remote enough that we appreciated the privacy. We spent one day wine tasting and had endless options for great wineries and delicious restaurants.

Best Napa experience ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

The home and property are immaculate. When on vacation, it is so nice to stay at a place as nice, or nicer, as your own. This home met that requirement and then some. From the super comfortable bed, amazing shower, and built-in espresso machine to the incredible hot tub, pool and fire pit, this place was incredible. Arthur is the nicest guy ever and took care of every detail. Thank you, Arthur, for sharing your beautiful home. We hope to be able to return many times.

Perfection in Calistoga

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of ten women getting away from home for the weekend in wine country, and the house and property are simply spectacular! Arthur met us at the house, and showed us the basics which was very helpful later on as we went to use various amenities. Each bedroom has it's own private bath and the best beds and linens I've ever experienced in a rental property. The house is spacious and has everything that you need. The property is a bit out of the way but that actually made it even better as the majority of us went out running through the mountainside before hitting the wineries! I would definitely recommend the house to anyone visiting the area....and I hope to be back in the future!

Beyond Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

This is one awesome property/home. We had a very large party and there were enough room for everyone. Everything in the house is top-notch - the TVs, linen/bedding, washing machine and dryer, kitchen equipment and wireless hookup (also, the kitchen ihas all staples you would need). The hot tube and pool was very nice. The grounds a beautiful with wildlife present. In addition, the owner was very, very helpful and available in a moment notice to address any question (before stay and during). Would highly recommend this property. Cannot go wrong renting this property.

Fabulous! Great place for large groups

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family (13 adults, an infant and a toddler) enjoyed a wonderful stay. The house is very well appointed - great kitchen/bedding/bath supplies and the outdoor set up is pefect for relaxing. Plenty of umbrellas, great seating options in the front and back yards. Music speakers throughout the house and outside. The pool is pristine and there are plenty of beach towels and outdoor chairs that you can take into the shallow end of the pool - very nice! We also had permission to host a private party on premise for about 45 people and there was plenty of room. Arthur, the owner is very easy to work with and the house is immaculate. We would definitley stay again. PS - an unexpected benefit. . .deer feeding on the front lawn in the mornings and afternoons. A real treat! I wish we could have stayed another week! Thanks Arthur.
