About the property
- Chateau / Country House
- Separate WC's0
- Minimum Stay2 nights
This unique and relaxing property is 20 miles from downtown Sacramento.
Our gorgeous contemporary home has all the amenities - big kitchen, screened porch, interior waterfall, 3bdrm/3bath with room to sleep more. The home has soaring 26-foot wood ceilings in the entrance, offset by cozy interior spaces delightful for visiting and relaxing. This serene 6-acre ranch setting has horses in the pasture, ducks in the ponds and its own private airstrip. It is a beautiful, peaceful and comfortable setting.
We DO NOT offer the venue for weddings, although it can be rented for special events of up to 40 guests through www.skyridgeranchevents.com by special arrangement with Barbara.
There are three bedrooms and three bathrooms in the home. We have additional tall inflatable mattresses so, if people don't need their own private bedrooms, we can easily sleep up to 12.
We are close to many Lodi wineries, the foothills of the Sierra's and the increasingly sophisticated (and fun) city of Sacramento.
If you want to have additional guests on the property, we have a separate business for renting the venue for special events. Feel free to visit skyridgeranchevents.com to learn more. We've hosted many a bachelorette, and bridal party here as well as catered rehearsal dinners, so we can talk about those options if desired.

About Barbara Thompson
I designed the home and my husband and his construction crew built it. After decades of leadership in business and non-profits, I now offer equine assisted growth and learning activities here at the ranch. I love spending time with my kids and grandkids and am teaching yoga and meditation once again.
Barbara Thompson purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2002
Why Barbara Thompson chose Wilton
If hanging out with your friends or family is your priority, our home is an excellent choice. The property is isolated from the noise and activity of the outside world. The setting is comfortable and relaxed with choices of interior and exterior settings. The most frequent comment I get is that the environment is serene and beautiful. We're surrounded by vineyards. Guests can explore the chill vibe of the Gold Country or the buzz of downtown Sacramento as each is 20 minutes away.

Beautiful home in a beautiful setting. Great place for a quiet getaway!! Barbara was very accommodating when our coffee maker didn’t work and bought us a new one right away. We had a great time here.
Beautiful house & peaceful location
Barbara is a wonderful host, the house is beautiful & spacious enough to easily accommodate our party of 5 adults & 1 youth, the kitchen is large, well stocked & we cooked some great meals, also enjoyed the screened porch for breakfast. If you are looking for a house in the quiet countryside but still assessable to Hwy 99 & Sacramento, this is the place!
A Quiet Sanctuary Away From the Storm
My family came from across the country and the world to be with my brother before he crossed over. All of the stresses associated with a prolonged illness were eased by the serenity of the ranch. It was a place of respite that we knew we could return to after the chaos of the day. It held all of us in tranquility. The pond, grounds and house itself allowed us all to decompress. To spend time together as a family allowed us to recognize how important we are to one another. This was the greatest gift coming from a heartbreaking situation. The ranch is truly a special place! Barbara quite literally was a godsend! Simply lovely! After my brother passed she connected us with a grief specialist to allow us an opportunity to remember my brother. Pauli met with us and we put together a small memorial for Gordon, which the ranch easily accommodated. Pauli was so helpful and we are all so grateful to Barbara for all the help she gave to us. She is a special lady who created a wonderful healing environment! Even the animals on the property were there for us. Dog cuddle therapy was perfect. This was THE perfect place for us. Thank you so very much Barbara for helping us through this difficult time and for sharing your marvellous home with us!
This is a lovely place to relax. The house is spacious and comfortable. The owner was pleasant to work with. We are looking forward to coming back for another visit.
Amazing property, wonderful owner!
The home and property are amazing! So quiet and beautiful! Barbara is quick to respond with questions before booking and very easy to work with. It was perfect for my family! Barabara made sure to have everything ready and greeted us when we arrived. We were able to prepare meals in the wonderful kitchen, they even had a BBQ we could use. Plenty of bedrooms, beds and bathrooms for our group of 10. I highly recommend this property!
Thank you, Barbara for an amazing weekend!!
Rent this house... It is amazing
I just returned from one night here. The pictures do not do the house or property justice. This house is beautiful and perfect for a large group. The house owner is wonderful too and very helpful.
Thank you for your kind words, Holly. Your group was a pleasure to work with.
I send a set of specific directions to all our guests before arrival. Please give these to all who are driving to the property as GPS (even the major ones) are not reliable in getting people here.
