Our place is close to restaurants and dining, family-friendly activities, great views , and plenty of Anderson Valley wineries. You’ll love it because of the outdoor space, the light, the quiet, seclusion, relaxation and our well-equipped kitchen. Good for couples and business travelers.
We live in S.F. and periodically retreat to our idyll - Lila Farms, where we grow olives and other assorted produce. It provides a restorative environment, situated amidst the wildlife common to rural enclaves. Views of the Anderson Valley can be stunning any time of day, but particularly so at sunrise - even when shrouded by fog (which rarely lasts past 10 or 11). And at night, the unlit surroundings regularly provide Milky Way views - the truly fortunate night owl might even be awed by meteor showers.
Our property is at 900 feet elevation, overlooking the "Redwood" side of Anderson Valley. We're located ten minutes up a winding dirt road, just a tick West of the small town of Boonville (which offers a surprising number of fine and every-day eateries, shops and bars!). And of course, we're minutes from some of California's best wineries. We'll gladly send guests a PDF of our Mendocino guide book upon completed reservation, with our recommended highlights and day trips!
We only rent the space when we are not present. A damage deposit will be required, and cleaning services are included in the price of rental, both before and after your visit.
We're happy to offer help as need be, though the area is rural and those accustomed to urban response times will be disappointed!
Our property is ten minutes from Highway 121, and the access is via a dirt road with a maximum speed limit of 15 MPH.
- Our property is a hillside property, with the side deck being the largest level surface. Entertaining is limited to that space, otherwise we'd welcome events.
Husband, father, wine merchant. Can't live without fast internet, good friends who don't let the facts get in the way of a good story, a hot grill, and an endless supply of interesting wine.
Our place is nice but casual, with a very well equipped kitchen and great space for entertaining friends long into the night.
