Enjoy a private Studio with private entrance, kitchen and bath on 50 acres
About Lynn Cunningham
Both my husband John and I were born and raised on the ranch our parents were born and raised. When we got married in 1986 we decided to make our home in Penngrove, CA just 10 miles from either of our family's farm. We are raising two boys, one a senior at Cornell University in NY and a sophomore at Petaluma High School. As happy farm kids it was normal for us to have extra people at the table for dinner or weekend breakfast, so it is natural to host new friends to our home. We are parents of quite a few European kids who have spent a school year here from Austria, Italy, Germany and Norway. We have visited nearly all of them in their countries, and enjoy travel, cooking, cows and watching nature. The latter three are all enjoyed each and every day right here at home!
Lynn Cunningham purchased this Studio in 1999

Fantastic Property in Wine Country
With just a few reviews, we were skeptical, but this property and owner exceeded our expectations. Lynn’s hospitality was exceptional. She definitely made us feel like family. She even assisted with our itinerary and recommended a great chauffeur to drive us around. With their help, we were able to see more than we thought during our stay. The location is great and the view is fantastic. We were very pleased with the milk house accommodations and would highly recommend it. Don’t be discouraged if you aren’t sure about staying at a “farm” because you really don’t even know it unless you go over to the barn. And if you want that experience, you can watch them milk the cows or maybe even help feed a calf. And if you are planning to tour wineries, Penngrove is pretty much in the center of wine country. You can’t go wrong with this property!
Steve, Rochelle and Lauren-
It was a pleasure to meet you all; thank you for taking a chance on few reviews...they’re all over on the ‘other’ site!
Thank you for the stellar review, I’m so glad you enjoyed your stay here in Sonoma County. I look forward to hosting and helping with the Bachelorette party soon!
All the best-
We thoroughly enjoyed our time here.
Beautiful Quiet Retreat
If you are looking for a quiet getaway in the wine country, this is the place! Beautiful farmhouse with cottages just minutes away from wine country and the coast! Highly recommend!
We are friendly, yet private people and want you to be completely comfortable on Sonoma Mountain Terrace...the gardens are extensive and we invite you to enjoy the beautiful waterfalls or the barn full of gentle Holstein cows and calves. Join ‘Cow’boy During milking and feed them if you like!
We recommend visiting Petaluma, Healdsburg and Sonoma.
View was terrific and the hosts were very gracious!
Thank you, I’m glad you enjoyed your stay.
All the best, Lynn
Wonderful farm setting for a holiday
From the moment we arrived we felt very much at home and for quite likely the first time in very many years we actually unpacked suitcases. The wide, open spaces, cattle nearby and lovely view over the surrounding countryside was everything that was promised. Friendly people happy to answer our farming questions. This dairy stud operation is quite unlike anything we have experienced as NZ beef farmers.
Billion dollar view!!
The view is really spectacular! Place was very clean and nice. Only cons were it was a bit small, and far away from a lot of the main travel areas like Sonoma, about a half an hour. It is worth it though! There is no cleaning of your room while there. We had a wonderful time!! The cows are so cute and it was so peaceful out there. If you want a good workout go up and down the mountain road!!
