About Mark and Lucy Herman

We are wine lovers and avid gardeners. We enjoy traveling and have made friends all over the world. They all love to come and visit us!

Mark and Lucy Herman purchased this house in 1999

Why Mark and Lucy Herman chose Sonoma County

We are in a spectacular spot on the third mountain ridge in from the Pacific Ocean.

Sonoma is on the fourth mountain ridge and Napa is on the fifth mountain ridge.

The property is at 1000 feet so we are often above the weather, enjoying bright sunshine while the valley below and the view all the way west is shrouded in fog. It is a incredible sight. Or occasionally we are in the cloud and there is soft mist all around- very lovely. It is very private but very close to everything too.

Secluded, Peaceful, and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay at Mark and Lucy's guest home. It is a perfect get-away for a restful, quiet extended weekend, but conveniently located to Rohnert Park and Santa Rosa for shopping and visiting favorite Sonoma Co. wineries. One of our favorite aspects of the house is the spacious deck and outdoor spa, surrounded by trees. Because of our allergies, we enjoyed the option of air-conditioning. The house is tastefully decorated but so comfortable and cozy. We felt very much at home and look forward to our next visit.

Most relaxing home in wine country

  • 5 of 5

Mark and Lucy's rental property in Santa Rosa is such a peaceful and relaxing home. My wife and I and friends were blown away with the beauty of the property. Located on top of a bluff, the views were unreal. With the grill lit, wine open, and the sun setting made us wonder why we didn't do this vacation sooner. Close to fantastic wineries & great restaurants, it truly is the place to stay. The gift basket they had waiting for us was so nice after a long day of traveling as well. Extremely clean, beautiful kitchen, cozy bedrooms, and amazing deck, already has us talking about a return vacation! Thank you Mark and Lucy for sharing the Harmony Home with us.

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful weekend celebrating our daughters graduation from SSU. The house was perfect for our needs and the owners went above and beyond to accommodate us. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend this house to anyone visiting the Sonoma area.

Peaceful, relaxing, private with wineries and restaurants close by; perfect Wine Country holiday!

  • 5 of 5

This little oasis is very clean and lovingly maintained. A perfect place to unwind from busy lives, indulge in the fabulous restaurants in the area and visit stunning wineries, tasting delicious Californian wine. The back deck is wonderfully set up. From reading our books on the comfortable chaises soaking up the sun, relaxing in the hot tub surrounded by tree tops, to outdoor picnic lunches taking in the view! A lovely gift basket greeted us upon arrival and the pantry was stocked with staples and gourmet essentials for us to enjoy. The owners are very thoughtful, making sure we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. This was the perfect Wine Country holiday for us, and with so many wineries and restaurants in the area, we are looking forward to coming back.

Location

Car: necessary

The house is secluded yet incredibly convenient - from the bottom of our road it is 5 minutes to Highway 101 access or to supermarket and Starbucks, 10 minutes to Sonoma State University and the Green Music Center, 10 minutes to Graton Casino, 10 minutes to downtown Santa Rosa, 20 minutes to downtown Petaluma, 25 minutes to Healdsburg/Dry Creek/Alexander Valley. 25 minutes to Valley of the Moon/Sonoma. 40 minutes to Napa Valley. 20 minutes to World famous Sears Point Raceway. 13 minutes to Sonoma County Fairgrounds. There are hundreds of world-class wineries within a 30-45 minute drive.

San Francisco is an hour's drive south down Highway 101, with many interesting stops along the way, including Petaluma, Tiburon, Sausalito, Stinson Beach and Mill Valley. Kayaks and canoes can be rented at the Monte Rio beach on the Russian River during the summer months. See majestic redwoods at Armstrong Redwoods and Muir Woods. Or take the scenic drive to Bodega Bay and the beach. Enjoy its good seafood restaurants, and see where Alfred Hitchcock's 'The Birds' was filmed.

With easy access to Highways 1, 12, 116 and 101, it is an ideal spot from which to see what the region has to offer; each area you visit is a spectacularly beautiful drive, but not an unbearable distance.

Local Parks include:

Taylor Mountain: 5 minutes─ Extensive trails great views

Russian River Resort area: 30 minutes─ swimming, canoes in summer months
