TOT certificate number: 1387N Why I Fell In Love: Waking up to the early morning sound of song birds and ravens while wandering outside with a steaming cup of hot coffee only to find a mother deer and her fawn gazing up at me calmly was one experience out of many that made me fall in love with this place. Enjoying the intense greenery of the forest playing off the dappled light on our deck while lounging in a rocking chair watching the sun fade to brilliant hues of red and gold with a glass of pinot noir was another. Leaning out over our balcony in the pitch blackness of night (no street lights!) as crickets came to life under cover of darkness in a cacophony of song while gazing up at incredibly clear stars so bright and shining was yet one more.

A car is really the best way to get around, however, if seeing the sights is your goal, then a bicycle would suit you just fine with many state parks and wineries very close by. This area is in fact a very popular cyclist destination so be careful when you drive! The Glen Ellen market downtown is stocked like a mini Whole Foods and is only about 8 minutes by car and The Fig Cafe is delightfully romantic restaurant featuring many local wines and friendly staff.

The SpacePatios at each exterior door create an indoor/outdoor experience, with outdoor dining and lounge areas (including the hammock chair under the walnut tree in nice weather). The kitchen has equipment for basic meals. Included are microwave, coffeemaker, fridge (but no freezer), and toaster. Pre-prepared foods are recommended! "The bed was very comfortable and the backyard was peaceful." Steph 7/2016 Guest AccessGuests have access to the entire cottage plus fenced yards, so your dog or kids are secure (check with us for large or multiple dogs). Interaction with GuestsThe guesthouse manager will meet you at the cottage to provide keys and explain where everything is. We are available by phone or text. The NeighborhoodCamp Kenwood is in Kenwood village, less than 2 blocks from 3 restaurants, 7 wineries (walk home from wine-tasting!), plus shops. Despite being one block from Highway 12, the house is extremely quiet. Camp Kenwood is on the training path of professional cyclists so you'll see pro teams whiz by several times a day, and you can go on a variety of documented road- and mountain- bike routes. In addition, the Valley of the Moon has nearly 10,000 acres of regional and state parks for hiking, mountain biking, and horse rides. Enjoy bird watching, poking around the vegetable garden, walking and biking from this location. The village streets have very little traffic. Because there are no streetlights and you're far from any city, the stars are spectacular most nights. Getting AroundUber and Lyft are available from Sonoma and Santa Rosa for transit or winetasting (there is a 15 min wait, unlike in the city). Camp Kenwood is 1 1/2 hours from SFO in normal traffic (rush hour traffic can add 1/2 - 1 hours to the trip). Other Things to NoteNo toxic products are used in the interior or garden areas, and every effort is made to minimize allergens and insects. However, it is the country so there are wild animals outside the fenced yards including foxes and skunks.

          Kenwood Cottage is located in the heart of Sonoma's wine country and the charming town of Kenwood. This two bedroom home (over 1300 square feet of living space) is walking or biking distance to Sugarloaf Ridge State Park and major wineries. This idyllic cottage rests on a year round creek in the historic Adobe Canyon and is situated in a bucolic setting. With private gardens, luminous canyon scenery and wildlife spilling through the cottage windows, you can walk to hiking trails that lead over bridges and waterfalls to spectacular vistas. Picnic at Sugarloaf Ridge or hike to bald mountain with 360 degree views of Northern California and the Golden Gate bridge. Spend an evening at the Robert Ferguson Observatory at Sugarloaf Park stargazing and learning about current astronomical events. This 'French Country' cottage is artfully appointed with many of the amenities of a five-star resort. There is a spa/hot tub only a few steps from the master suite overlooking the year round creek, with exquisite views of the stars, mountains and the majestic trees that surround this private oasis. Unlike most other properties listed in Kenwood and the surrounding areas, this is not a "tract home," it is totally unique and all by itself. Privacy and seclusion in the canyon setting exemplify the experience. Compare this to the other properties you may be considering that are often located in residential neighborhoods. Sip our bottle of complimentary wine while you take a dip in the hot tub under starry nights or have your breakfast on one of the three outdoor tables thoughtfully placed around the cottage. An outdoor grill (brand new Weber gas grill!) and full kitchen is ready for your culinary artistry. Numerous premiere wineries in the region all within several miles include: Chateau St. Jean, Landmark, Arrowood, Mayo, Ledson, Kenwood, Kunde, Imagery, Benziger, Valley of the Moon, Blackstone, Moon Mountain, St. Francis, Eric Ross, and Ty Canton. Not familiar with Kenwood? Look what the Wine Spectator wrote recently about the area, "There are beautiful wine roads all over the world, rambling through Tuscany and Provence, or along the Rhine in Germany's Rheingau. But you needn't cross the ocean to find some. The route, coming into Kenwood as you drive north through Sonoma Valley, the mountains ribbed with hillside vineyards, is in the same league." Experience the much more laid back atmosphere of Sonoma vs Napa valley where it is not uncommon to have the wine maker pouring his wines, the staff more friendly and passionate and often where there is no tasting fee. While there are plenty of wineries to choose from in Sonoma Valley, should you decide to experience more of what the wine country has to offer, the Kenwood Cottage is centrally located. Driving times to other famous wine regions from the Kenwood Cottage: Napa valley 40 minutes Carneros Region 20 min Calistoga 30 min Russian River 25 min Healdsburg / Dry Creek Valley 35 min. A host of fine restaurants are all within 10 min from the cottage ranging from local Tapas to gourmet French and Italian along with fine California cuisine. What have others said about their stays at the Kenwood Cottage? Here are some excerpts from our guest book (with more detailed reviews on our website): . . . We had a wonderful time for our annual visit to Sonoma and Napa and the lavender festival at Matanzas Creek winery (only 15 min away). We hung out on the deck one night and really enjoyed the spaciousness and privacy. We took long walks each morning, one up the hill to Sugar Loaf State Park and once down to Landmark Winery. . . . Silence, nature and a well-maintained cottage made our honeymoon special. I am sure we will come back in the upcoming years to celebrate anniversaries. We could not have picked a better place for our honeymoon. . . . We loved the privacy of the cottage and the sound of the creek was so relaxing. We will definitely return to the Kenwood Cottage. . . . What a wonderful way to getaway from our busy lives and spend some much needed R & R and "alone time" together. We arrived here tired, and left feeling rejuvenated and peaceful. Riding bikes to the local vineyards was our highlight and relaxing in the hot tub soothed our sore muscles. We had some of the best sleep we have gotten in the past 6 months. . . . The atmosphere here is serene and loving. I was relaxed as soon as we pulled into the driveway. . . .

                Sonoma Valley is the epicenter of food and wine culture, but sometimes no one wants to have to be the "D.D." on vacation. With our perfect location in the heart of Sonoma Valley, you can walk to 9 wineries within 5 blocks, and still feel like you're "getting away from it all" in our quiet neighborhood surrounded by rolling vineyards. There are also some fun restaurants and cute gift shops in our quaint neighborhood, a couple of places for coffee, and a small grocery market, all within walking distance. It's serene and breathtaking, but just a block and a half from the main route through Sonoma Valley, and near everything you'd want to experience on vacation. Hacienda Sonoma was custom-built in 2008 with vacations and entertaining in mind, so the large open spaces mean everyone can spend time together without feeling cramped. Our big bathrooms have lots of mirrors and electrical outlets, the pillow-top mattresses all have incredibly soft pillow-top mattresses and luxury linens, and the huge gourmet kitchen has high-end appliances, gorgeous serving pieces, two dishwashers, and everything you need to make entertaining fabulous. Our bocce court adjoins our french lavender field, and the outdoor living and dining spaces have views to the Zinfandel vineyard. There are flowers blooming at every time of year on our 1/3 acre property. Our regulation-sized pool table and bar make for fun evenings. Couple that with our whole-house sound system where you can dock your Mp3 or iPod, the Plasma TV with surround-sound and satellite, and a library of movies -- there's fun for all. We've got it all covered for an amazing get-away. There's even a redwood play structure in back for the little ones. Each of the bedrooms has a premium king-sized bed and full bath. Indoor and outdoor dining spaces can each seat 8 guests. Our Mediterranean gardens are full of blooming flowers, lavender, roses, grapes, and an herb garden for the convenience of our guests. Pick fresh peaches, figs, tomatoes, and mandarin oranges when in season. Even during the winter, there's something blooming in our yard, the surrounding hills are green and lush, and the pace is very relaxed at our local wineries and restaurants. Our cozy fireplaces and heated floors make winters wonderful as well! Sonoma Valley is magical, and is often described as the "Tuscany of California." Our location is a tiny neighborhood tucked behind several vineyards, shops, and restaurants, just a block and-a-half from Hwy. 12. It's a quiet and peaceful neighborhood that makes you feel like you're in the country, but close enough to walk to lots of fun destinations. We're removed from the traffic and noise of the downtown Sonoma Plaza (about 15 minutes away), but close enough for a visit to shop or dine out. Once you arrive at Hacienda Sonoma, it's hard to leave. The bocce court, lavender field, Zinfandel vineyard, and Mediterranean gardens are beautiful and serene. Walk to one of the 8 wineries within an easy walk through our neighborhood, and pick up a bottle of wine for dinner and enjoy music from one of the many local artists performing at wineries on the weekends throughout the summer. There's a farmer's market each week, just a few blocks away, and two lovely parks, each within an easy walk. There are several cute shops, a couple of restaurants, an old historic church, and a small market within just a few blocks. It's a tiny neighborhood where everyone knows their neighbors, and people wave when they walk by. We searched for 5 years for the perfect spot in Wine Country, and this is it!

                  This one of a kind stone lodge is located in a secluded location at the very heart of the Sonoma Valley, all 5 bedrooms are large and have a private, ensuite bath. We have a caretaker who lives just down the lane, so you can be assured of superior oversight and assistance. We now have access to a rural event facility or can help you locate a back roads venue of choice. Overview: The house is 4000 square feet including 4 bedrooms/4 bathrooms in the main house and 1/1 in the nearby guest cottage with its own full kitchen. All 5 bedrooms have ensuite baths. 2 stone fireplaces, professional kitchen, wine bar, chemical free lap pool, waterfall, 8 person spa/hot tub, stone fire-pit with extensive outdoor lounging and dining areas, bocce ball court and dedicated media room. It is situated just off the very center of the Sonoma Valley floor, at the mouth of a granite canyon which becomes Sugar Loaf State Park. The locally quarried stone walls of the first floor are over 1' thick, providing luxurious natural air conditioning. The outdoor splendor merges with the indoors as all the front-facing first floor windows bifold back to open completely. Secluded and picturesque, there are endless views to the forested peaks of the nearby state park. Rustic, country French antiques abound with an easy 'feet up' level of comfort and ease throughout. Idyllic in the summer, the house is uniquely fabulous in the winter, spring and fall. Rainy, cool days are a delight with friends or family gathering around the massive fireplace and cooking in the vast professional kitchen with its 2 islands, 2 dishwashers and room for 3 to cook simultaneously at the professional Viking range. An adjacent 14 foot wine bar affords temperature controlled refrigeration for optimal wine tasting. When temperatures drop, there is radiant heat (under the limestone flooring) so one is more than comfortable in the high-ceiling, main floor spaces. When the rainy season starts, the nearby creek fills significantly and rushes by to the valley floor. It can sound like Niagara Falls is across the way; truly delightful. There is a bocce court in the side yard and a separate theater room with 70' led screen with surround sound system. The pool is a chemical free lap pool, 12’ wide by 50’ long. The sheets will be line dried in the fresh country air (weather permitting), hand ironed and waiting for you to sleep ever-so deeply in. There is nothing to compare to gathering in front of a big fire. Often even summer nights are cool enough to allow a blaze. There are 2 stone fireplaces on the first floor. The living room fireplace is right out of the days of yore when stone lodges had oversized fireplaces as the center of the household. A unique feature is the outdoor fire-pit (can also be used for cooking) under 150 foot tall fir trees with adjacent propane or charcoal grills - a fabulous place to gather around a roaring fire as well as to cook or dine. There is firewood on the premises and all the fires will be stacked, ready for your match to set them alight. You can retain our caretaker to rebuild the fires for you daily if desired. Culinary options galore: We are so fortunate that the renowned chef John Ash and his right hand, Mei Ibach, are managing the culinary program. John Ash is often referred to as the “Father of Wine Country Cuisine”. His namesake restaurant, John Ash & Company, was the firsts culinary marvel of its type when it opened its doors in 1980. Today he is an acclaimed author and much sought after teacher, and consultant. If desired, Mei can add her unique Thai and Indonesian background to her wine country flavors - mingling exotic Malay and Chinese spices. Let Mei or John create the menu of your dreams; whether you want a big outdoor barbecue with a selection from John’s newest cook book, or a 6 course sit down extravaganza with the most exquisite wine pairings the county has to offer. Team building cooking events are very popular group activity to consider. We can make arrangements/recommendations for any of the following: Private chef for a luxury en situ experience or any and all catering Event planning Wine tastings, pairings, private tours Delivery of fresh local produce from our friends who run an organic farm Stock the frig with your list (can go to Costco for volume purchases) On site cooking classes Team building culinary workshops Daily cleaning Driver for winery tours, dining out in the area

To us, it is the most beautiful section of the Sonoma Valley. This lot is located in a canyon, the only such geographical particulars of its type in Sonoma. The Canyon provides cool and shade in the relative extreme heat of the Sonoma summers. Everything is green and cool in the shelter of Adobe Canyon in the summer and fall while the Valley is burnt and arid, grass-less hills and dusty heat. Views are spectacular to the state park that surrounds this rural location. It is so dark at night you can't see to walk without the moon and the stars are huge and ever-so bright. The house construction was started in about 1949 by a crazy naturalist who continuously added on to the property for the next 10 years or so. They did a lot of hunting in the valley up till the 1960's. There is a cement block shed behind the house that was a walk in cooler where they hung the deer and mountain lion carcasses. We still have some mountain lion in the area -but they stay up in the park, never any problem. If they find any bear they trap them and take them up to Lake County. What is now the guest cottage was actually built to house raccoons - luckily they had long departed when I took possession in 1998. The original owner had also started a tunnel under the little Adobe Canyon Rd so all the animals (who he sometimes hunted) could cross to get water in the creek. This is rather an indication of his eccentricity as even today there is not any traffic to speak of on this road for it has no outlet beyond the state park itself. I gutted the entire house in 1999. The trusses and wood ceiling in the great room were put in at that time. Getting AroundPlease inquire for shuttling service options.
