Photos and Description of the Glen Ellen vacation house rental

Sleeps 7 (plus 1) In A Main House And Guest House With Two Master Bedrooms

Amazing views, fresh modern interiors, peaceful natural surroundings and a huge deck with swimming pool and hot tub define this Sonoma wine country retreat near Glen Ellen. It is an extraordinarily uplifting property at any time of year, only 15-20 minutes' drive from the wineries, restaurants and farmers' markets of historic Sonoma and Glen Ellen.

Cavedale Ridge is a 10-acre hillside estate facing west, with spectacular views across the vineyards and orchards of the Valley of the Moon to the Sonoma Mountain range, Mount Tamalpais and, in the far distance, the towers of the Golden Gate Bridge. The house is surrounded by olive and bay trees and fragrant Mediterranean herbs such as lavender, rosemary, and manzanita. In spring, there are blossoming crab apple trees.

A unique and outstanding feature of Cavedale Ridge is a vast deck running off the Main House living area for swimming, lounging, outdoor cooking and dining, and star gazing.

To reach Cavedale Ridge, it is a 10-minute drive from the main highway up a windy and narrow road (so we discourage nervous drivers). For everyone seeking a quiet and comfortable escape near Sonoma and San Francisco, this is a very special wine country retreat.


The Main House and Guest House (always rented together) are distinguished by pristine, light-filled interiors with white walls, contemporary furniture and vibrant accent colors. There are three master suites, with two enjoying panoramic views of the Valley, and the third a garden view.

Main House

Walk through the front door, and you enter an airy open plan space with hallway, living room, dining area for 10, and large kitchen. The bright comfortable interior has vast picture windows with magnificent views, making it a special place to relax in any season. A custom kitchen is designed for the gourmet cook. It has a large island with gas cooktop, extensive work surfaces and a breakfast bar. There are Bosch appliances throughout, and thoughtful extras such as a Kitchen Aid and gelato maker.

Two sets of sliding folding glass doors open from the dining area onto the newly-built extensive deck, creating a seamless transition from indoors to outdoors: a huge indoor/outdoor living space with swimming pool (heated in high season) hot tub (available all year), sun loungers, fire pit, and propane BBQ with food preparation surfaces. This is where lazy summer days are spent, lounging on the deck, cooking local produce together, watching breath-taking sunsets, and sitting around the firepit after dark, gazing at the stars.

In spring and fall, the folding doors create a semi indoor/outdoor area where you can comfortably enjoy the fresh air, stay sheltered, and be near the BBQ and the hot tub.

Upstairs in the Main House is a Master Bedroom with views across the valley, a king bed, and an ensuite bathroom with more views from its super-size bathtub and a shower. Next door is a small bedroom that can accommodate two guests: one on the twin bed and one on a roll out twin bed. This arrangement works especially well for a family with young children, who can be close to their parents next door.

The Guest Bedroom in the Main House is on the same floor as the living area. It can be made up as either a king bed or two twins. Two further guests can sleep on a double sofa bed. It has a garden view, and a bathroom next door with a bathtub with shower over. This bathroom also serves the living area. In the basement, there is a washing machine and dryer for guest use.

The Main House enjoys under-floor heating throughout, with air-conditioning in the Master Bedroom. There are three TVs with DirectTV and one DVD in the Main House.

Guest House

The private Guest House is on a lower level, below the main deck, and is reached from the deck by a spiral staircase, or directly from the front of the property. It is a superb design-led space with the same magnificient views as the main house. The bedroom and living area are open plan, separated by a floating wall with a sleek see-through gas fire. Enjoy the fire from the king-size bed or a love seat and chaise in the living area. The ensuite bathroom has a walk-in shower and separate wc. Off the living room is a wet bar with all you need (full-size refrigerator with ice maker, dishwasher, coffee machine and toaster oven) to prepare breakfast, a salad lunch, or serve drinks.

Sliding doors open onto a spacious covered wooden porch - somewhere shady for hot days, a quiet place to read away from all the poolside activity, or another spot for watching the evening sunset over cocktails. The porch also has a folding Ping Pong table for those more actively inclined. The Guest House has air-conditioning and heating and one TV with DirectTV.
