Photos and Description of the Occidental vacation farmhouse rental

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath + Tent Cabin, Hot Tub, Pond

A glorious, picturesque mini estate with fishing and boating pond, redwood grove, orchard, and hiking trails, all set in a private sunny meadow. As featured in Sunset magazine, a gourmet, over sized country kitchen, antique mantle on wood burning fireplace and Parisian antiques complete the feeling of elegance and serenity. Step outside to a cozy covered porch with upholstered wicker furniture and large entertaining deck with hot tub and a view that takes your breath away. The house is adjacent to a 80 acre vineyard and features surround sound throughout the house with a high end Denon stereo system for auxiliary input devices. There is a Bose Wave system for CD's.

In counterpoint and worthy of Architectural Digest is the new modern master bedroom with Italian metal windows in wonderful contrast to the first growth redwood floors salvaged from a local Sonoma County Barn. Oversized beams that support the suspended ceiling and asymmetrical skylight creates the feeling that you are sleeping in a Redwood Grove in a W hotel setting. All this faces onto the pond, enormous redwoods and bathed in full sun. Fireplace, bath and separate shower, plus awarding winning designer touches.

In addition to the primary residence, there is a real miner's tent cabin on the property that contains a beautiful queen sized sleigh bed with top shelf linens. Brand new this year, the tent cabin has a space heater and limited power. The tent is located on the other side of the pond. Fall asleep with the sounds of the frogs and seasonal creek.
