|Property type||chateau / country house|
|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
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.
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
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.
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!!
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.
First, many many thanks to Barbara and her husband for graciously accommodating a very last minute 2 night stay and small wedding we were throwing for our very close family members! They both were very helpful throughout the entire booking process and stay. The house (which they designed and built btw), is gorgeous, clean, very comfy and peaceful to stay in according to the bride and groom. The grounds are serene, charming and very well kept. The layout, with the pond, beautiful large trees and open grassy areas were simply a PERFECT backdrop for the ceremony and reception. My little ones even had a ball exploring the area as well! I searched many properties and communicated with several other property owners and Barbara was the most pleasant, helpful and straight forward owner by far. Couldn't be happier with our choice, will certainly be back in the future. Thanks again Barbara!
Barbara's home is beautiful. From the 26 foot ceilings to the indoor waterfall in the entry foyer this house is a gem. The grounds surrounding the home have breathtaking views of mountains and acres of ranches. Horses, cows, chickens surround you but the accommodations make you feel like your in 5 star resort. My family and I enjoyed our stay in Wilton. It is just a short drive from all the shopping centers in Elk Grove. Very close to downtown Sacramento and the airport SMF as well.
Barbara was a lovely hostess and greeted us when we arrived. When we needed anything, she took care of it, and we were generally left to enjoy the lovely home and property. We like to cook and the kitchen was well appointed for preparing meals, and we were able to host a small family dinner. We especially enjoyed the beautiful surroundings, and we will choose to stay there again.
This property is true to the description- dramatic, spacious country home not too far from the city. As we were there for junior Olympics with a very hectic schedule it was so nice to feel as though we had our own little retreat each night to recover from the days excitement. Our host Barbara was fantastic and gracious. Although she lives on the property, in a separate unit, we felt as though we had the place to ourselves but could reach out to her if needed for anything. The only time we really knew she was on the premises was when the sprinkler system was on in the morning as she was tending to the horses. A relaxing way to wake up in the morning to enjoy the cascading waterfall from the porch with cup of joe. This is a wonderful secluded property if you are looking for a getaway that can accommodate a big party. The only thing that would make it better is a pool!
Thank you Barbara for your outstanding hospitality.
The entire Need for Speed crew!
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.
