Vineyard Station Ranch Maison -  now accepting reservations for April of 2011

Vineyard Station Ranch

What better place to explore the wine country than from a well-appointed house nestled in the vineyards? At Vineyard Station Ranch, located just minutes from historic Sonoma Plaza, you have two to choose from: Vineyard Station Ranch Maison,  and Vineyard Station Ranch Chaumière (coming in June).  Reserve the house of your choice - or - reserve two  for a special gathering of friends, family, or business associates.

The Maison

Three bedrooms plus a bonus bunk room and convertible sofa make The Masion the ideal vacation home for small groups. Gather local gourmet ingredients and whip together a meal in the spacious, centrally located country kitchen. Ample tiled counter space, a versatile island, and casual dining table make the kitchen a gathering place for groups who love to cook. A vintage table in the spacious dining/family room seats 8.

During warmer months dine outdoors and take in the gorgeous sunsets over the surrounding mountaintops. Then slip into the hot tub for a soak under the stars.

Enjoy a game of croquet on the expansive lawn, which wraps around the redwood deck. Walk through the vineyards to Denmark Street, a country road, which connects to the streets of Sonoma. Borrow ranch bicycles to ride through the vineyards into town during dryer times of the year.

Curl up on comfy sofas around the family room fireplace and enjoy vineyard views over the deck and outdoor dining area. A separate front room, equipped with a desk, comfortable seating, flat screed television and DVD player provides space to watch movies - or quiet moments for catching up with the office - if you must.

Slip into 600 thread count linens beneath fluffy down comforters for a great night's sleep. Enjoy a fire from the jetted bathtub or luxurious king sized bed. Step outside the master bedroom to your own deck for coffee in the morning. Relax, reflect. You'll remember Sonoma as one of the most special places on earth.

The 2,300 square foot Vineyard Station Ranch Maison is the perfect choice of vineyard homes to celebrate a special occasion in the heart of the wine country for your party of up to ten.

Sunrises and sunsets over the ranch are breathtaking.
