About the property

3 Bdrm, 3 Bath, Mountaintop Retreat! Pool, Spa, Acerage, Dog Friendly!

Available May - September - Atop a mountain, Sitala Mountain House rests on 20 forested acres at the edge of the Sonoma County Wine Country. This private and secluded property is truly a world away from everything and is located at the end of a half mile long, steep dirt driveway in the hills of Cazadero. This property offers a spacious 2 level home featuring 3 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms. Off the living room is a new screened in dining porch that offers never-ending views of the hills and valley, outdoor seating and a fold out futon. The private above ground heated pool is set into a large deck with a locked waist-high gate. The hot tub overlooks the pool area and can be accessed from the grounds or the home's wraparound porch. The home also provides a pergola with hammocks.

This home is a retreat within itself. Sunbathe on the pool deck, hike on the fire roads in the mountains, enjoy a BBQ on the gas grill or gather for formal dining in the separate dining room. The home's downstairs features Mexican tile floors throughout and three sets of glass French doors leading out to the wraparound deck. The open living room, kitchen, separate dining room, full bathroom and laundry room are located downstairs. Upstairs offers a master bedroom with a King bed and a wood burning stove, a second bedroom with a Double bed, 2 full bathrooms and a den with flat screen television (no cable), a DVD player and a Queen futon that can be opened on the floor for another sleeping space.

    Read our Reservation Info for more information on our policies, including night minimums and rates.
  • NOTE: We use an automated system that integrates the VRBO/HomeAway booking engine with our own reservation software. This is generally a good thing; calendars and rates are more accurate than they ever have been and are becoming more reliable every day. However, this is new technology, and has occasionally malfunctioned. If your reservation seems to go through for less than the stated night minimums, or if the rental rates or availability seem too good to be true, be aware that the system may be experiencing an integration issue and your reservation may not be accepted. If you have any concerns, please don't hesitate to give us a call.
