Wine Country Round House - Sonoma County


What we love about Wine Country Round House

Step away from the ordinary and enter the Southwest-inspired oasis that is Wine Country Round House. Nestled between the 1,700-foot peaks that connect Napa and Sonoma Valleys, this Adobe lounge house is sure to ‘wow’ you with its unique Native American design and spectacular panorama views. A steep, winding road leads you from the centrally located village of Glen Ellen up to six secluded acres of luxurious privacy and a hilltop vantage point, where you will find a three-bedroom main house and a separate two-bedroom guest house, both of which are ideally suited for larger families, multiple couples, or groups of friends.

In the upstairs master suite, you can linger in your plush king-size bed and gaze out the floor-to-ceiling windows to see as far as Mt. Tamalpais in Marin on a clear day. When you do manage to pull yourself from bed, pad through your double glass doors to access a sheltered patio awaiting you for a cup of tea or coffee. On the ground floor is a media room, dining area and a modest but contemporary and well-equipped kitchen, which acts as the heart of the home. Open to a step-down family room, the kitchen is where everyone gathers around the wide granite countertop for casual dining and conversation as food is being prepared. While we love the smooth interiors and natural lighting of this villa, it is the outside space that makes Wine Country Round House so livable. From the family and dining rooms, you have direct access to a multi-level terrace that runs the length of the home and looks out to the swimming pool and hot tub. The custom-designed outdoor dining table at the far end of the terrace invites you to enjoy al fresco meals any time of the day, with a vista that reaches from the far eastern slopes of Napa Valley to ancient rock formations jutting up from Sonoma Valley. Though just a 15 minute drive from many of Wine Country’s biggest destinations, a stay at this five bedroom residence ensures a remote feeling of being off the beaten path.

Good to Know

Built as an outwardly spiraling wagon wheel, Wine Country Round House is a one-of-a-kind design that allows both playful and practical elements to emerge. The thick walls of the Adobe architecture keep the main house nice and cool - negating the need for AC - and add to the rustic atmosphere created by the original Southwest tiles, exposed ceiling beams and grotto bathrooms. The guest house just down the hill, however, is equipped with more modern features, including AC, a mini-kitchen, living and dining area and 180-degree views of the tree-covered mountains and fabled vineyards of Napa. Beneath it is a small workout room with its own view deck. The remote location of Wine Country Round House is the perfect choice if you’re looking to step away from town and immerse yourself in the stunning natural beauty of the Sonoma and Napa mountains. And the best part is that you’re still only a short drive from the world-class restaurants and tasting rooms of Wine Country, when you are eventually able to retreat from this hidden-away sanctuary.

Eat, Drink & Play

Just beyond this villa’s gated grounds is Trinity Road, which leads you west to Glen Ellen and Sonoma or east to Napa. In less than 20 minutes, you can arrive to any one of these destinations for a day of discovering the wines and foodie flavors of this renowned region. The first junction on the way to Napa will bring you to Oakville Grocery, a gourmet market and world-famous deli that we highly recommend making a pit stop at before continuing on to other sought after locales. All in all, it wouldn’t be a complete visit to wine country without visiting the following:
  • Mayo Family Winery
    Lunch outside in Mayo’s picnic area and experience the mouthwatering flavors of their chef’s wine pairings
  • Glen Ellen
    Come visit the quaint village of Glen Ellen and see why author and adventurist Jack London fell in love with its surroundings
  • Napa
    Take a drive to the iconic city of Napa for first-rate entertainment, culinary adventures of a lifetime and, of course, some of the most famous wine in the world
  • Oakville Grocery
    Gourmet sandwich and salad selections, fresh baked goods, local wines: the perfect spot to gather supplies for your wine country picnic
  • Sonoma
    Travel south to the town of Sonoma with its beautiful plaza, encircled by boutiques, wineries and restaurants and historical landmarks
  • Robert Ferguson Observatory
    Housing one of the largest telescopes in Northern California, this observatory is located within the Sugarloaf State Park and hosts monthly sun and star gazing events
  • Hanzell Vineyards
    Called “one of the most influential producers in California’s winemaking history”, this is the winery our guests tell us is one of their favorite wine discoveries in Sonoma
  • Santa Rosa
    A pleasant ride to the city of Santa Rosa takes you to a more urban setting, replete with upscale shops, restaurants and attractions like the Charles Schulz “Peanuts” museum and the Safari West Wildlife Preserve
  • Sonoma Raceway
    In one corner of the tranquil region of Sonoma, the roar of engines and squealing of tires signal that you’ve found Infineon Raceway, scene of record-breaking auto and motorcycle races, and arguably the world’s busiest racing facility with 340 days a year of events
  • Sonoma Coast State Park
    Scenic hiking trails, sunsets over the horizon and sandy dunes await you at this Northern California beach destination
  • San Francisco
    In just over an hour, you can be crossing the iconic Golden Gate bridge and immersing yourself in the vibrant and fast-paced life of the city by the bay
