Get away from it all and experience a quiet pocket of Northern California wine country from this Redwood Valley vacation rental. Barra Estate Lodge and Vineyard is a cozy cabin resting on 25 ares of organic vineyards and near a 49-acre lake in the Ukiah Valley. On the property is a delightful hot tub on a wrap-around deck with views as far as the eye can see. It's nearly paradise!
While you'll have the luxury of seclusion here, you're still within reasonable driving distance of provisions and attractions. Just two miles down the road, a nice bike ride for experienced cyslists, is BARRA of Mendocino Winery tasting room. Three miles away is Lake Mendocino for boating under the sun. Meanwhile, the town of Ukiah is just five miles south on 101. There, you can stock up on local produce, pick up fresh baked goods, and even catch a flick.
Return to your private kitchen to cook up a storm or to sit lakeside on the home's Adirondack chairs. Outside this peaceful ranch home is a furnished deck with a gas grill.
Inside is a gloriously spacious living area with floor-to-ceiling windows, hardwood floors, real wood-paneled vaulted ceilings, and skylights for a bright and airy atmosphere. With a gas stove, dishwasher, and all the basic appliances, plus a spacious dining table to enjoy homemade meals on, the kitchen is a chef's dream.
Pick a cushy seat to sink into while a friend pours wine from the day's excursion. Watch cable TV or just read a book from the home's library. Steal a snooze in the downstairs den or play poker into the night in the furnished cellar. This is your chance to truly unplug, as this home doesn't provide WiFi (put your work email on vacation mode and mean it!).
You'll have earned a good night's sleep, so take one of the four bedrooms: Three feature four-poster queen beds and the fourth has two twin beds for close friends or siblings. One of the full bathrooms has a deep soaking tub for when the hot tub isn't private enough. Eight guests will be accommodated here easily.
In addition to the nearby wineries are over 80 within 60 to 100 miles from the home. Plan out a serious itinerary or wander with a light heart - it's all good! Stroll the immediate area and snap photos, take a day trip to the coast, or relax lakeside.
