Bristol Glen - Sonoma County



What we love about Bristol Glen

Charm, convenience and an idyllic outdoor setting await you at Bristol Glen. With its ideal location you’ll be able to explore and experience nearby top wineries, restaurants, markets and shops, and then come home to this perfect wine country retreat designed for indoor and outdoor living. The private park-like setting – over 2.5 acres - features a pool and large deck, dining table, pergola with bar, BBQ and outdoor kitchen (which lights up for evening dining and late night cocktails). Along the back of the house is a lavish deck where bright red umbrellas and cushioned wooden chairs welcome you for easy relaxing as you take in nature at its finest.

Come inside to find your Great Room with a dramatic two-story high stone fireplace and tall windows that fill the space with natural light. The huge gourmet kitchen is a chef’s dream come true -- the perfect place to prepare the bounty of ingredients found at local markets and farms. A second living area/den offers a more serene setting. Furnished in an inviting contemporary country style with neutral tones, lots of natural woods, and soft fabrics, Bristol Glen has accommodations for ten people. In addition to the bedrooms, the upstairs features a separate open den with large screen TV and a balcony overlooking the property – the perfect quiet space after the day’s adventures.

Good to Know

Though Bristol Glen is just a few miles to the popular towns of Kenwood and Glen Ellen, the property is located at the end of a quiet lane and is quite private and safe. Families and friends love the relaxed atmosphere and the resort-like features of the outdoor living space. There are 3 bedrooms upstairs (two share a spacious bathroom) and one bedroom downstairs with a full bath nearby. The downstairs den features a comfortable pull-out sofa.

There is a small step between both the kitchen and downstairs bathroom leading to the great room, dining area, den and downstairs bedroom. As such, guests are advised to "mind the step" and should know that the downstairs floor plan may not be suitable for guests with mobility issues or who are unsteady on their feet.

Eat, Drink & Play

A stay in the historic town of Kenwood guarantees a taste of the wine country you’ve always imagined. Picturesque mountain ranges and rolling vineyards line the rustic country roads to the ‘Heart of Sonoma Valley’, a destination dotted with charming homes, plazas, restaurants and family-run wineries. A short drive from the front door of Bristol Glen will bring you to endless ‘eat, drink & play’ settings, including:
