New Modern House in Sonoma Valley's Best Area

Kenwood, California


We lost our home in the 2017 fire. But we've rebuilt and are now offering an even better experience. Our rebuilt modern house has everything you could ask for when visiting the wine country: expansive decks, outdoor furniture and a high-end grill to enjoy the outdoors. Our living room has contemporary furniture with glass, accordion doors that bring the outside in. Great views of lots of open space. WiFi enabled. Enjoy our wireless Sonos stereo system. Stream a movie using NetFlix or Amazon Prime. (Unfortunately, we do not have cable channels. )

The house, equipped with air conditioning, has plenty of privacy and shares two acres with a main house, which is next door. It's set amongst California live oaks and Bay trees. A “winter” creek runs through the property. We have redtail hawks, wild turkeys, deer and the occasional fox. Take a walk down the quiet country lane or better yet, bring bikes and enjoy one of Sonoma’s best biking regions. We are in walking distance of one of Sonoma’s best regional parks, Annadel State Park. Historic Jack London State Park is only 15 minutes by car and Sugarloaf State Park is 10 minutes away.

The cute town of Kenwood is only five minutes by car. Glen Ellen’s top rated restaurants are 15 minutes and the downtown of Sonoma is 25 minutes. Quiet and secluded, the house is also just minutes from some of Sonoma Valley’s best and most picturesque wineries, including Ledson, Kunde and St. Francis.

The house has air-conditioning.

    We loved everything about this VRBO. Location was convenient to so many wineries in Sonoma and a 45 minute drive to Napa Valley. House was spotless and the owner’s personal decoration touches were cute and homey. The complimentary bottle of wine was enjoyed out on the deck, watching the wild turkeys and birds. The owners also provided their recommendations for wineries and restaurants and how to operate the controls for this modern house. There was a power outage that occurred while we were away on a wine tour. I got a phone call from the owner offering to put us up at a hotel. We declined, but it was a very nice gesture and much appreciated. We would highly recommend this property and would love to stay longer next time we’re in Sonoma.

    Would stay again in a heartbeat!

    Great hidden gem if u want peace and quiet this is the place to be. I loved how the windows opened up to the area up there. We saw turkeys about 30 of them right next to the house and at different times we saw deer on the property enjoyed the stream of water on the property. Well equipped home and beds were comfortable. The only down side was no cable tv. U had Netflix and Amazon. Otherwise it was very nice.

    We had an amazing time at this property. It is a very special property in a beautiful setting. We loved the thoughtful design and great furnishings. The wrap-around sliding doors in the great room almost made it feel like we were sitting outside - even though we were curled up by the cozy fireplace. The home is in a somewhat remote location just east of Kenwood in a beautiful wooded property with a stream running through the back. And the highlight of our stay was seeing our neighbor out walking his goat on a leash. It was a short drive to both Kenwood and Glen Ellen - with a variety of good restaurants and wineries. We especially enjoyed Glen Ellen Star, Tips Roadside, and Les Pascals Patisserie. Thanks so much for a wonderful stay!

    This property was jaw-dropping in terms of the building design AND the furnishings/decorations, etc. It's in a tranquil wooded setting with a little stream meandering thru the property, shown off by whole-wall windows that can be drawn back to make the room open-air but still very private. There's a great wrap-around deck with rocking chairs and other lovely outdoor furniture. Super-relaxing. We didn't want to ever leave!

    Home sits in a beautiful, wooded, quiet and hilly area of Sonoma County. It has plenty of modern conveniences and is open and airy. Loved watching the deer and woodpecker families from the living room in the morning. When the weather is warm enough, take the time to open the sliding glass doors and soak in the nature. The one time we needed to reach the owner he was accessible and responsive.

We liked everything about it: the modern & cool decor, fully stocked kitchen, comfortable beds, peaceful setting, and all sorts of thoughtful conveniences that made our stay easy and relaxing. The owners thought of everything in this house! It’s off the beaten path in a tranquil setting, with the sound of frogs the only nighttime noise.—nice to come back to at the end of the day. We liked the restaurants and wineries in the Kenwood and Sonoma area. Napa is easy to get to, so we spent a day there too. We would definitely rent this home again!!

We loved the modern architecture and furnishings. We used the outdoor grill and sun porches . There is plenty to see and do nearby. We went to Jack London State Park and it was well worth the visit. There are a few nice restaurants within 10 minutes or so. Sonoma is a world of difference in a good way compared to Napa. Comfy beds and Netflix. We were well set up! Great communications and no hassles! A++++++

    My best friend and I decided to rent a Vrbo for a Scrapbooking Weekend Getaway. We couldn't have chosen a more perfect location! Set far back in the hills in Kenwood, this house is all it is advertised to be. We spent the majority of our weekend in the main living area in front of the huge floor to ceiling windows where we had excellent lighting to do our work. If we got cold, we just turned on the gas fireplace, if we got too warm, we just opened one of the many sliding glass doors! Eric was in the main house when we both arrived, but other than saying a quick Hi! and welcoming us, we really didn't need to contact him at all during our stay. Everything we needed was available. The beds were super comfy and the temperature was perfect! (We both prefer cool nights when sleeping, so we kept the Nest set to 62 at night.) We really enjoyed the flock of turkeys who strolled through each morning and evening, as well as the few deer, squirrels and the multitude of woodpeckers and frogs that were serenading us each day! All-in-all, it was a very peaceful weekend stay. We also decided to take a walk through the Quarryhill Botanical Gardens which were quite nice, but I expect they would be even lovelier in the Spring/Summer when they are in bloom. We had a truly delicious dinner in Sonoma Square at the El Dorado Hotel Restaurant. The food (especially the Brussels Sprouts!) was truly amazing! Thank you Eric for letting us stay at your beautiful home! We hope to do it again sometime!

    Eric’s place is one of the cleanest vrbo houses that we’ve been to – so much so that we were able to stay shoeless the entire time. During a sensitive time like this, it gave us much peace of mind to stay at such spotless place. Everything feels and probably is brand new and the pictures don’t do it justice. It’s like a hotel but much more spacious and more comfortable given all the thoughtful amenities the owners have equipped the place with. We could see ourselves renting this place long term (e.g. while working remotely) and wished that our stay was longer. We also loved that it was a peaceful and safe haven away from all the pandemic concern given that this home is tucked away in the woods. Eric also gave us great recommendations for wineries as well as nearby parks/trails and he was always very responsive. Lovely and tasteful decoration inside the place and even the beautiful dry flowers on the table was such a nice way to be greeted into the house. You can really tell that the owners continue to put care into the place (somewhere you’d want to live in yourself) and we’d be thrilled to come back.

    I recently rented this VRBO for one week - which was not long enough. The location is so serene. Driving up to the VRBO you pass open fields and vineyards. Wineries, restaurants, etc.are close by. The property was private. In the evenings I would often see a dove and two fawn passing the road. The VRBO is well furnished and equipped. One can see the thought the owners have put into the home.The outdoor seating areas were extremely comfortable. The owners were so responsive whenever I had a question. I will definitely be returning next year and would highly recommend this VRBO.

    If I could give it more than 5 stars I would.

We drove down a one lane road to get there and right away encountered a flock of wild turkeys. Upon entering the cottage, our host had a bottle of wine waiting and a book complete with everything you need to know about the cottage. The cottage itself was clean and well equipped. Although it rained most of the time, we did spend a morning sitting on the deck watching a herd of deer cross the property. Each day my friends and I would head out to check out the wineries in Kenwood, Glen Ellen, and Sonoma. The cottage is the perfect distance between all of these great places. I would most certainly stay here again.

The property is as described, clean, well maintained and well stocked. We loved the Sonos music system, there was no need for a TV. The hits are the wineries in Sonoma, Napa and Russian River areas, far to many to visit but, that will keep us coming back. Armstrong Redwoods, Bodega Bay and up north on Rte 1 are some great beaches and just south of Jenner a guy selling smoked salmon(excellent) roadside from a tiny trailer. Santa Rosa Farmers Market(Original), Wednesday and Saturday is worth a visit for locally grown produce, baked good and meat products.

We can't say enough about the house itself as well as the location. We felt like we were tucked away in the country but only a few minutes drive from Wineries and Glen Ellen with lots of great restaurants for the size of the town. The house had everything we could ask for and was so much better than staying in a hotel. We liked the recommendations left by others and used for a few meals. One recommendation if staying in the area is to do the private tour at MacLeod family vineyards. It's about 10 minutes from the house and well worth the time. We found it in yelp and gave it a shot. Such a great experience. Thanks to Eric for a lovely and well stocked vacation cottage! We will hopefully be back soon.

    We have spent 4 nights in this cottage, we have chosen this place regarding the positives reviews but we were disappointed. The cottage is nicely decorated, the kitchen is well stocked and it's a quiet place, BUT the laundry room is outside the house (kind of strange and not handy at all) but the worst part was the condition of the laundry room, it's really dirty and in a bad condition (you even have some garden equipment just beside the washer and dryer). I have rented many houses in the US and Canada, but i have never seen a laundry room in this condition. I didn't want to wash my clothes in the washer, too dirty, and the dryer wasn't working (probably too old, with rust inside!). We had brand new towels in the bathroom, and when i say brand new it was really brand new... they never have been washed.......disgusting (they probably bought new towels because the dryer wasn't working)!!! All the furniture in the patio were dirty and stained, even if they had a plastic protection, not very inviting! It was our second stay in Sonoma area but we won't be back in this rental. The owner offered us a free night for the inconvenience for the dryer, but if i had known for the laundry room i would never have rented this cottage, and i haven't appreciated to have towels not washed, not a very delicate attention for his guest!!!

    We just came back from our stay at this wonderful apartment.This property is incredible very clean. What you see is what you get. What you don't see and you also get is a friendly welcome, a very well stocked home away from home, a place of calm in Sonoma Valley, ..all in all, a great experience we are happy to recommend to anyone! Thanks a lot, Eric. Rejean Tremblay Québec Canada

    I travel the world for business and pleasure and the road has made me a fastidious or discerning guest. We rented this cottage with my husband and teen sons for a wedding at the Kenwood Inn and found it was perfectly appointed, with a gourmet kitchen, lovely furniture and terrific open floor plan and decks. Owners attention to detail and hospitality were highly appreciated. Superb hide-away amidst the vineyards.

    Perfect, relaxing getaway!

    Rented this cute little cottage for my mother-in-laws 60th birthday. The place housed the five of us (one person slept on the couch) just great. The cottage is super cute, very well-designed, well-stocked with everything you need, and is tucked away from the busy areas of Sonoma Valley. It does take a bit of a drive to get over to Napa Valley (you can take a windy mountain path for 35 min, or take the main highway which takes ~1 hr), but was definitely worth the extra drive. We used the deck every night for dinner and for lounging. Was super comfortable. Would highly recommend and can't wait to come back!

    Absolutely Perfect!

    I researched hundreds of areas and properties on VRBO before my husband and I decided on this property, and it was perfect for us. Finding the rental was easy from the directions Eric gave. He had a bottle of wine waiting for us and a binder full of information on the area and nearby restaurants which was very helpful. As noted, the rental does not have central air, and we did not need it. However we did use the heat once. We found the hot water in the shower to be very sufficient and he had everything you could need available as far as toiletries, hair dryer, shower gel, etc. The kitchen also has everything needed to cook a meal, which we did for breakfast and dinner a couple of days. What we especially loved about this rental was the privacy and access to the fresh outdoors. Being from the South it was a little too cold for us to sit outside, which honestly is what drew us to this rental, but we did enjoy opening the windows and a set of french doors that has a screen. And we really loved the Sonos speaker system! Eric was great to work with and answered any question I had. I would definitely recommend this rental and hope to return again one day.

    The Kenwood Cottage is truly magnificent. Where to start...first, the home is EXACTLY as pictured. Every last detail was considered when building/renovating this property and that shines through from the moment you walk in the door. I stayed for a long weekend with my boyfriend and the location was perfect. It was central and allowed us to explore various parts of Sonoma & Napa easily by car. Each night it was a true treat to come home here and relax, cook (on the beautiful stove) and enjoy a bottle of wine. And the Sonos sounds system is fantastic - we easily followed the directions and hooked up our iPads, iPhones and streamed our own music - how fun! I can't say enough wonderful things about the property and Erik as well - he answered any questions I had in advance and was prompt and thorough in his responses. Bottom line, we can not wait to return! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home!!

    What a beautiful place to stay. This beautiful Kenwood location was not only close to several winery destinations on our list it was also remote enough to feel like you we're removed from the world. If you enjoy cooking they have a beautiful gourmet kitchen and for the out doorsman, several trail heads within a 2 to 5 minute drive from the house. Everything you could think of they had at the house. We spent almost every morning and evening on the outside couch. A very wonderful experience and I will be back next year. Thank you again!!,

    We highly recommend this property! Home was better than the photos! Clean and bigger living area than I expected. Quiet location. We saw deer & wild turkey in the mornings. Eric is wonderful to work with. He even warned us of road work and offered to refund our $ if we didn't want to deal with it. Road work ended up being a very small inconvenience. We will come back! thanks Eric

    As you pull up to the cottage it is just as seen in the photos, description and in the reviews. Very clean, and open. My girlfriend and I stayed at the cottage for 7 nights, it very quickly started to feel like a home away from home. We thoroughly enjoyed opening up all of the windows and French doors to allow the fresh California air blow through the place. This place truly made our trip to napa/Sonoma valley worth it! I would stay here again if planning another trip to the area. Felt very private when lounging on the deck and/or cooking on the grill. thank you!

    We stayed three nights at Kenwood cottage. Great place to relax after a day visiting the country. The cottage is beautiful, well furnished, nicely decorated and comfortable. We had plenty of space for the four of us. The deck is large and we had great time at the fireplace. The area is peaceful, with many birds and deers. Music, books, movies and wifi are available. There is a lot to do and see around, within 30 minutes of drive. We will definitively reserve there again if we come back in the region. Thanks Eric to share your beautiful place with us!

    We had a great stay at this charming cottage! It feels nice and secluded but is also an easy drive to/from all surrounding attractions. It easily accommodated four adults and a baby, and the beds/linens were quite comfortable. We had a nice bottle of wine waiting for us when we arrived, and access to plenty of music via the home's entertainment system. The town of Kenwood is just a quick 5 minute drive away, and the Glen Ellen Market and Garden Court Cafe (amazing breakfast) are just a quick 10 minute drive away. Would definitely stay again, highly recommend!

    This was a wonderful little cottage nestled away off the beaten path in a little area about 20 minutes from Sonoma Square. The deck (with gas grill and multiple seating areas) was wonderful, and the layout is very open, with the kitchen/dining/living area all in one room. The bath was very well done and the shower was lovely. The upstairs/loft has 2 twin beds, and it would nice if there was a large mirror up there, as well as a little more head room, but overall, it was fantastic. We had 3 people in the unit for 5 nights, and it worked well. I wouldn't recommend this if someone has any sort of mobility issues, especially if you have to get upstairs because the spiral stairs are a little narrow and not all that convenient. If you're 1-2 people and only need the one bedroom, this is a FANTASTIC place for a romantic getaway. Or, if you're a couple with kids who are extremely mobile, they will love, love, love the loft! Decorated very nicely, clean, and the SONOS music option is great (just make sure you have an iPod or iPad) -- we were actually able to listen to our favorite Minneapolis station while we grilled and had our happy hour every night! Quite a bonus! I'd highly recommend and would go back in a heartbeat. Also, Eric was very responsive and excellent to work with on the arrangements and rental. A+

    Our family (myself, husband, and infant son) booked the Kenwood cottage for two nights mid-January, but had to extend our stay because we loved the place so much. Beautifully decorated, fully stocked with high-end appliances, and loaded with lots of games/DVDs to make the stay totally comfortable. Although we could not utilize the two amazing decks as our stay was during some of the coldest weather Northern California had seen in recent history (brrrr!), we thoroughly enjoyed waking up in the luxurious bed looking out the french doors at the sun streaming through the frosty oak trees. My husband and I spent our lazy afternoons taking turns reading and napping in the incredibly comfortable twin beds in the cozy loft while the other played with our son downstairs. The cottage is in the midst of some of the best wine country around (and Mexican food, by the way!), but removed enough from the main road, so you feel as though you're on a country getaway. The hilarious turkey guffaws and little creek nearby definitely add to this experience. I would highly recommend this cottage, and cannot wait to come stay again; this time in the spring so we can enjoy our bottles of wine on the deck!

    Fantastic Cottage in the Woods: secluded but well situated

    Possibly the best appointed cabin-in-the-woods we've ever stayed in. Modern, elegant decor. Fully equipped kitchen with excellent appliances. Courteous hosts, with complementary champagne, careful instructions, picnic utensils, cute little flashlights, and throw blankets -- many small details like this anticipate your needs. Good, broadband Internet connection (25 Mbps down, 4 Mbps up). Lovely woodwork. French doors and large windows give a spacious, airy atmosphere. Located in the low hills around Kenwood, in sparse oak woodland; there's a balance between rural seclusion and convenient access to groceries, restaurants, wineries, etc. Beautiful Sugarloaf State Park is only a 15-20 minute drive away with its waterfall and trails up to Bald Mountain. Hood Mountain Regional Park and Annadel State Park are also nearby. We had a lovely stay and would confidently recommend this cottage to others. Good for romantic getaways, or families with 1-2 older children (there's an appealing loft bedroom with two beds, bean bag chairs and a small deck; the loft stairs are too steep for young children). The care with which this cottage was decorated and furnished lend it an atmosphere of elegant hospitality unusual in a rental cabin.

    We loved our 3-day stay here. The cottage is well-situated with trees and vineyards all around, and most importantly, it's a bit removed the regular bustle of the town of Sonoma and Highway 12. However, you can easily go wine-tasting, shopping or hiking. We mostly relaxed on the large deck with friends and lots of wine. The kitchen is fully-equipped and every room is up-to-date. I hope we can stay longer next time.

    Our stays - there have been two so far - have been rewarding times of rest, reflection and good conversation, long hikes of varying difficulty in terrific near-by parks, and cooking and enjoying good meals in picturesque local restaurants. It's a place to escape the drum-beat of the city and re-acquaint yourself with the stars. And it looks like the pix. No surprises. Highly recommended.
