A vineyard experience in the wine country – homeaway gas line jobs in wv

Villa with 2 guest houses in the vineyard. Take long walks through the woods or hike up one of several mountains on 258 private acres. Experience breathtaking vistas at 1400 feet. Have a picnic on the observation deck overlooking the valley and watch the sun set or have a relaxed dinner on the back patio by the firepit on a cool evening in August! Easy access to towns and wineries in both Sonoma and Napa counties.

The luxurious main house has 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths. The master bedroom has a duvet king bed with a marble bath and a separate marble shower. One bedroom has 2 twins that can be converted to a king with its own marble bath. The remaining two bedrooms have duvet queen beds and share a common marble bath.

We are in Sonoma county, but we are very close to Calistoga and St Helena, (both are 15 miles away) both are lovely towns in Napa county. The town of Sonoma is 18 miles away. Many of our guests have made a complete loop from our place to Calistoga, St Helena, Rutherford, Yountville, Napa, and Sonoma before returning back. The drive is amazing and lovely among the most picturesque sceneries in the California wine country. It takes about 2.5 to 3 hours for the entire loop so it’s an easy drive with time for lunch and visits to wineries along the way.

We are in the newly established Fountaingrove District AVA and our vineyards are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon. While we primarily sell our grapes to wineries and winemakers, we do make our own wine. Let us know if you would like to taste our wine!

If you’ve ever had a dream of living on a vineyard, Steelhead Creek is straight out of central casting. It’s everything you could ever create in your wildest wine country fantasy. We reserved Thai and Cynthia’s stunning property for a 50th birthday celebration. It looked great in the VRBO listing and could accommodate our large group of women comfortably. But, the photos and video truly don’t do justice to the actual property. The grounds are breathtaking. Lavender lining the winding driveway, killer views of the valley below, gorgeous landscaping, a barn, grapes…Pinch myself. Photos of the house don’t come close to capturing the specific details – the tall ceilings, beautiful design, gorgeous floors, scale of the rooms. Both the living room and kitchen easily accommodate a large gathering of friends or family. The beds are very comfortable and have the best sheets, ever. The two guest houses on the property are well-equipped and lovely. Cynthia and Thai dropped off a birthday cake and flowers for our group, a very lovely gesture, and otherwise kept to themselves.

On Thai’s suggestion, we contacted their neighbor Chuck, owner of Volante Vineyards, for a wine tasting. He was a character and very patient with our large group. His wine was fantastic and reasonably priced. It was an ideal, casual way to spend our first evening. We spent Friday and Saturday in the hands of Woody with Woody’s Wine Tours. He was, hands down, the highlight of a near-perfect weekend.

An important note: The house is remote, which is part of the charm. It was a bit difficult to find at first. When Thai and Cynthia advise you to arrive before it gets dark, listen to them. The drive is windy and there are steep cliffs. Also, follow their directions and NOT the directions provided by most GPS apps. We recommend stopping at the Safeway for food/supplies because you won’t want to leave the house once you get there. The earlier reviewer who complained about lack of saran wrap, etc., was being especially picky. The house is well-stocked with things you will need like dishes, toilet paper, soap, etc. .If running out of saran wrap will ruin your stay, buy it beforehand. (In fact, if this is something that bothers you, you might want to take up yoga.)

An incredible experience. We took our executive team for a retreat and chose this because of the two additional guest houses which would provide our team with more space. We had 11 people—this property could house 12 comfortably. We arrived in the dark, which was dicey because of the long windey road but this was worth every bit of travel. We woke in the morning to the most beautiful vineyard, trees, landscape (roses) and outdoor meeting space with firepit. The house is based on natural materials—rough-hewn floors, distressed wood, luxury with a rustic flare. Plenty of space to meet, eat, and retreat. We hired Lee Ann Geneve with the Gilded Grape to cater dinners and breakfasts—the best choice given the 30 to 50 minute drive to good restaurants. We brought wine in. This was excellent food—beyond what we could have ordered anywhere else. Thai and his wife, the property contacts, were very proactive in making sure we were cared for—communication was beyond my expectations. They left an excellent Steelhead Creek Vineyards Malbec for us. Two things to be mindful about—two bedrooms are linked by an adjoining door so you don’t want snorers in those close quarters, and pulling out of the long drive onto Calistoga is VERY dangerous. Don’t trust the corner to the left. This property receives our highest rating. I️ wouldn’t change a thing.

The property is located in Sonoma County and it is also close (20 minutes) to Calistoga which is the north point of Napa Valley. We are in the heart of the northern California wine country with vineyards and wineries just minutes away in all directions. The towns of Sonoma, Calistoga, St Helena, Healdsburg, etc offer a relaxed area to wander and shop with lots of good restaurants wherever you go. You can drive west to the coast and be in Bodega Bay in about 45 minutes. This is the town made famous when Alfred Hitchcock filmed the movie "The Birds" there. If you want a truly local experience, visit the communities of Sebastopol, Petaluma and Occidental and spend the day shopping along the main street. Drive south of Bodega Bay on Hwy 1 to Tomales Bay and have oysters and clams on the beach. Nick’s Cove is a restaurant and bar that overlooks Tomales Bay. Go north of Bodega Bay on Hwy 1, to arrive at Jenner. Plan lunch at one of our favorite restaurants there called River’s End. It’s good to make a reservation, as it books up with locals, and plan on a drive closer to one and a half hours. After lunch in Jenner, take River Road back toward Santa Rosa and stop off at the Korbel winery for a tour and free tasting under the historic Redwood trees.
