About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Why stay in a hotel or bed and breakfast when you can unwind at Sonoma Farmhouse Ranch, a private, luxury Sonoma vacation rental property, right in the heart of California wine country? Situated just a short two block walk from the historic Sonoma Plaza, this recently renovated mid-century classic California Ranch home provides the comforts of a cozy and private wine country retreat and getaway.

The home is situated on one half acre of land, providing visitors with charming gardens, expansive outdoor entertaining spaces and a new 15' x 35' inground salt water pool with solar heating, volleyball net and automatic cover.

The renovated ranch-styled home offers an open great room entertainment area with living, dining, kitchen island and cook area with large flat screen tv. The home can accommodate up to 4 persons and offers two master bedrooms with generous sized en-suite bathrooms, complete with shower/tub combo, vanity and toilet area.

What makes this house unique

Sonoma Farmhouse Ranch is uniquely located in the historic district of Sonoma and within a short walk to the Sonoma Plaza. Very few rentals can boast the expansiveness of open space, privacy and features including a pool within a short walking distance to town. Other rentals close by have little or no outdoor entertaining space.

Lovely Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time! The Ranch House is gorgeous and perfect for 4. Everything was clean and safe. The yard is huge and made for a relaxing day soaking in the October sun. It is very close to the Sonoma town square which made everything so easy. We can't wait to come back!

Our Oasis!

  • 5 of 5

Sonoma Farmhouse is WONDERFUL! Very comfortable, had everything we needed for cooking and relaxing. Bob was awesome, very friendly and so knowledgable about the area (his restaurant suggestions were spot on!) The back yard pool is the icing on the cake, spent a lot of time there unwinding ... just what we needed! Will go back!
