About the property

5 bdrm/7.5 prvt bath, Sleeps 12

WE CAN ACCOMMODATE LARGE GROUPS. We understand some groups are full of individuals who want their own bedroom. There are lots of options for completely private sleeping areas with their own private bath at The Ranch. We have relationships with adjacent properties to sleep larger groups of people.We have access to a rural event facility or can help you locate a back roads venue of choice, ideal for corporate meetings, dinner parties, wine tastings, team cooking classes, rehearsal dinners, elopements or small weddings.

If you want to check dates and specific pricing you can do this very accurately on the upper right of this web page in the reservation box. Just enter the in / out dates and click detailed pricing. The quote will be correct; we keep the online info up to date. Rates are not confirmed until a reservation is booked, rates change based on season, special events, holidays, demand, etc.

CONCIERGE: We have a full-time concierge on staff with a profound working knowledge of the diverse activities at offer in the Wine Country. Let our concierge organize tour and tasting itineraries for your group at award-winning private wineries not open to the public including transportation and informative talks from owners or winemakers. We can arrange en situ private pours/tastings by some of the county's best winemakers or private chef presentations / meals with wine country pairings right at our property. Or maybe you want to know the best choice for hot air balloon trips or where to zip line through the redwoods, ensure the most informed visit possible to this multi-faceted agricultural area. If you can dream about it, we can organize it for you; there is a fee for service.

The interior dining area seats 16 and the 19' exterior table overlooking the Sonoma Valley easily accommodates 18. A veritable nature preserve of 70 secluded acres on a ridge at the Napa/Sonoma county line, this home has a breathtaking vanishing edge pool with views to Mount St Helena and beyond. Nature is just BIG up here. Every design choice has been made to improve one's ability to sense and absorb the splendors of rural Sonoma county. We do our utmost to create the ultimate vacation environment, anticipating one's every need. The gardens at the house are noteworthy: wisteria droop across the front of the house and roses abound in the side yard. A floral cutting garden and herb garden are designed for resident guests' use during their stay (seasonal).

The chemical free pool is 60 feet long. The surrounding deck exceeds 3000 sq ft with barbecue area and fire-pit. 8 person (known to hold more!) hot tub, bocce and a media room with 70' flat screen and surround sound. Extensive area for outdoor seating and dining including dining tables both inside and out. *Please note in the rainy season (typically November-March/April) outdoor cushions are stored.

The kitchen was designed for our chefs, thus professional quality: 10' island, 4' range, 3 refrigerators, 2 dishwashers, options for state of the art cooking equipment, etc. The owner, a European-trained interior designer has used antique furnishings and finishes throughout. The refinement of the design adds much to the overall experience and level of relaxation affordable at this awe-inspiring property.

PARTICULARS: We have a caretaker who lives on a neighboring property, so unlike most VRBO rentals, you can be assured of better oversight and assistance; someone is almost always on call. There is firewood on the premises and the fire pit will be stacked, ready for your match to set them alight. The pool is truly chemical free with numerous in-water benches.

CHECK-IN is guaranteed by 4:00 p.m. and checkout is at 11:00 a.m. We do our very best to accommodate early check-ins and late check-outs, but cannot make any guarantees until one week prior to arrival in case the house is occupied on your arrival or departure date or housekeeping is occurring.

EVENTS: We now have access to a nearby rural event facility or can help you locate a back-roads venue of choice. Elopements are easily accommodated, ask about our options. We can arrange intimate sized events, a rural wine country event as we have a 5-star event planner on staff familiar with all venues and vendors of quality in the two-county area. The size and scope of this property afford unique venue choices for wine tasting events, dinner parties for all celebrations, ceremonies, rehearsal dinners, yoga classes, just to name a few!

CORPORATE: We are uniquely well configured to provide both the mind-expanding natural environment plus the required amenities and services to truly ensure blue ocean level creativity for either meetings or retreats.

LOCATION UNPARALLELED: We are so high up, 2500 feet (we are slightly above neighboring Pride Winery), that we are actually rarely affected by the bay area fog or “marine layer”. For vacationers, this guarantees endless warm summer nights and much hotter average temperatures during the day - ideal for taking advantage of the pool and grounds. All the bedrooms are air-conditioned to be sure. This is basically a state of the art “green” structure with superb climate control. For cooler periods we have radiant floor heat throughout. The 70 acre ranch is located near the Napa/Sonoma county line and thus uniquely affords easy access and touring of both valleys. We are 25 minutes from the corner of Highway 12 and Calistoga Rd in the Sonoma Valley or just under 25 minutes from the center of St Helena in the Napa Valley. From the Ranch you can drop down to the center of either valley, approaching your destinations from the “side” thus avoiding the encumbered main valley north/south traffic. We are 2 hours from San Francisco, Oakland, and Sacramento. There is an airport in Santa Rosa, 45 min from the house; several commuter flights per day from Seattle, San Diego, and LA.

The house is located off of a mile and a half one lane winding, gravel and dirt road.

CULINARY OPTIONS GALORE: We are pleased to have a myriad offering of culinary and wine services for our guests. We are fortunate to have the renowned wine country chef John Ash and his staff managing our culinary offerings. Many believe John to be the “Father of Wine Country Cuisine”. The sky is the limit for culinary events or classes, winery tours or private tastings, or any scale of private dining or catering that John and his staff can arrange to meet your preferences.

Services our concierge can arrange (fees may apply):

Private chef for dinners on the pool deck in the living room or at the summit viewing deck.

Catering of any style or price point

Wine tastings

EXCEPTIONAL ACCESS TO BOTH COUNTIES / WINERIES. The elevated yet central location of this property affords maximum privacy yet easy access to not one but both Wine Country valleys. There are a bounty of boutique wineries in the immediate vicinity. We provide more info on wineries and vineyards. Traffic especially in Napa county has become very problematic on weekends. With one 2 lane country road the only north/south option, traffic slows to a crawl from 10am to 7 pm in high season. From the Ranch you can drop down to the center of either valley, approaching your destinations from the “side” thus avoiding the encumbered main valley north/south traffic.

RURAL LOCATION: The drive up to the ranch is spectacular but curvy. The driveway is a gravel rd of one mile - all weather passable; I zip up it in my prius with ease. But it is wise to plan ahead as a run to the grocery store is a 1/2 hour plus errand. We are happy to assist with stocking the house and/or arranging drivers etc. Fees may apply

WARM NIGHTS, UNIQUE WEATHER DUE TO ELEVATION: After purchasing this one-of-a-kind location, I was surprised to learn how unique the weather is here. We are so high up, 2500 feet (we are slightly above neighboring Pride Winery), that we are actually rarely affected by the bay area fog or “marine layer”. For vacationers this guarantees endless warm summer nights and much hotter average temperatures during the day - ideal for taking advantage of the pool and grounds. All the bedrooms are air-conditioned to be sure. This is basically a state of the art “green” structure with superb insulation, climate control etc. For cooler periods we have radiant floor heat throughout which is so comfortable.

We are 2 hours from San Francisco, Oakland and Sacramento. There is an airport in Santa Rosa, 40 min from the house; several commuter flights per day from Seattle, San Diego and LA.
