Castle Retreat and Cottage
Castle Retreat and Cottage
As soon as you roll up to the beautiful, green garden of this private four-bedroom paradise, you’ll know you’ve arrived in blissful wine country! The property rests on 2400 square feet, and features a main house and a cottage joined together by lush and green gardens and lovely outdoor living space.
Walk through the doors of the main house to find yourself in an inviting and open living area, featuring a charming dining area and gourmet kitchen. With a 50-inch flat screen situated over the gorgeous fireplace, the living room is the perfect place for gathering with your guests, extending easily into the kitchen and dining area, creating a lovely entertaining space. The kitchen is outfitted with a sleek center island that doubles as a breakfast bar, and the amazing appliances afforded to you are of restaurant quality.
Each of the three bedrooms in the main house is tastefully decorated with a rustic sense of classic wine country style. The master features a queen-sized bed and access to a gorgeous private bathroom, complete with a soaking tub and walk-in shower. The next bedroom has another queen-sized bed and the final bedroom has two twins.
Across from the main house, the pool house functions as its own separate living quarters. With a full kitchen and comfortable living area, this cozy home is just as beautifully decorated as the main house! There’s also a full bathroom and a bedroom with a queen-sized bed and twin-sized bunk bed.
Outside, you’ll find yourself lost in a gorgeous, green wonderland. Your backyard is full of finery, including multiple places to lounge and plenty of activity to be had. Take a leisurely, afternoon nap under an umbrella, or refresh your body in the inviting pool waters. The master chef will love the amazing outdoor kitchen, perfect for a casual poolside lunch. Let the kids play bocce ball, while you gather around the outdoor table and enjoy a glass of wine as the sun goes down.
Sonoma County is full of a range of incredible wineries to visit, as well as a plethora of natural beauty and many stops to explore with much in the way of fine dining, shopping and much more. The main plaza features a folksy, down to earth vibe, while still offering charming upscale boutiques and delicious cafes galore. You’re within driving distance to plenty of amazing wineries, art galleries, five-star restaurants, and more. Sonoma is a great start for your foray into wine country, just an hour away from San Francisco and close by to the rest of the valley.
For a rustic retreat full of serenity, make this stunning wine country home your next getaway destination!

A Jewel Box Home in Sonoma
This home is a gem. Our hostess was very gracious and gave us lots of good information. The interior of the home is cozy, comfortable and very well equipped. The grounds are an oasis. Beautiful outdoor space and landscaping everywhere you look. We didn't use the pool house but it is a fully contained guest suite. We did use the pool though! We had a great time hiking, wine tasting, and relaxing in the yard. We took advantage of all the great restaurants we did not cook but the next time we would love to use the outdoor grill and pizza oven area. Great location too. The town is just a few minute drive and lots of wineries within a short distance. Bartholomew Estates and their private 375 acre park (open to hiking) is right down the street! We will definitely visit Castle Retreat again if we have the opportunity!”

Relaxing stay with all the ameneties
There were 7 of us who stayed at Castle Retreat and it was perfect. There were seating areas for everyone to have some space and plenty of places for us to be together and enjoy the wood fired oven, the pergola with the fountain, the swimming pool and the fire pit. We had everything we needed to cook several meals and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Barbara was a great host and we would love to come back.”

Superb New Year Vacation at Wine Country!
We had a fabulous time at Castle Retreat and Cottage. We were two families of four. We were all very comfortable having one family in the main house and one family in the cottage. The owner waited for us at the house and gave us all the instructions in person. She was also very helpful in helping us organize our trip before our arrival. The house is gorgeous. We used the fire place everyday and it made the place look and feel warm and cozy. The location of the house was perfect. We were literally five minutes from downtown Sonoma, grocery stores, restaurants, wine tasting rooms and wineries. We also visited wineries in Napa. Everything is within an hour from the house (even San Francisco). The kitchen is fully equipped. The linens are excellent quality. The master bathroom has a beautiful tub. I highly recommend this property if you would like to explore wine country with friends.”
