About Jacqui Smail

Jacqui was born and raised in East Lothian Scotland. She had a very successful career in the travel and tourism industry in Edinburgh for twenty five years! In 2009, Jacqui, her husband Andrew and their two sons were given the opportunity to move to Sonoma County and the rest was history!

The whole family fell in love with this stunningly beautiful part of California and wanted to share it's beauty with their nearest and dearest. When choosing their new home, they decided to buy a property that would allow for just that. Nestled in the beautiful Skyhawk area is their home with Wine Country Retreat, right on the property.

Jacqui Smail purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Jacqui Smail chose Skyhawk Commmunity

The moment I saw this property, I knew it was the one for us. It was love at first sight. I never tire of the location, the mountain views, or the bright airy feel. The choice of food and wine options are endless. We love how close it is to Annadel Park and Spring Lake where we enjoy walking.

What makes this cottage unique

The location of Wine Country Retreat is superb. The open views are quite stunning and the host is so friendly and welcoming. The property is spotlessly clean and bright. Our linens are of superior quality and the space is bright, comfortable, clean and private.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wine Country Retreat has only been open since May 2014 and already I have stayed twice! I have family in this area and come to visit often, but like my own space and what an adorable space this is. If you are looking for a charming little guest house, that is very clean, in a great location and with a delightful host. Then this is the one for you.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We felt lucky to find such a lovely apartment in a great neighborhood with such nice hosts. Upscale furnishings. So comfortable and extremely clean, with the added plus of great views. We hope to return soon and would remind all that - in spite of the recent devastating fires - there is still so much to see and do in the wine country and they need visitors to help support the rebuilding process.

Great spot on the edge of town

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Wine Country Retreat for Christmas week while visiting family in the area. The place is very well cared for. Staying there in the summer with the great deck would be a treat. Everything worked well and the towels were so comfy and plush, they have us thinking of upgrading at home. The coffee maker was a treat in the mornings.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The guest house was so clean, it had everything you could possibly need and the bed was so comfortable! Jacqui thought of everything- even putting milk in the fridge for me for my morning coffee. I hope to come back soon!
