This unique studio lies four miles inland from Dillon Beach, near Sonoma wine country and its staggeringly beautiful coastline and beaches. The bucolic 1-acre parcel is home to deer, wild turkey, rabbits and many species of birds, who come to the many fruit and cypress trees on the property.

The space
The building is the original stable for the 100-year-old Estero Schoolhouse. Natural wood throughout with French windows, bamboo floors, full tile kitchen. The compact tiled bathroom includes shower, toilet and sink. This is a perfect writer's retreat or for anyone enjoying the beaches, towns, vineyards, or the many natural wonders of West Marin and Sonoma County. Park your car 15 feet from the front door. See families of cows just six feet across the fence from your dining table.

The studio shares the same acre and lies about 100 feet away from the main schoolhouse. The patio and fountain which separates the two are shared use. The studio residents have exclusive use of the adjoining cedar deck and gazebo, its own south-facing brick patio, the rear 1/2 acre of the property, which is filled with trees and meadow grass.

The schoolhouse, which sleeps up to six, is also available either separately or with the studio through AirB&B. Renting both listings together is recommended for those with larger parties, or for those who require more privacy. We offer a 10% discount for rentals of house and studio together.

Close to local wineries and breweries, or hike and kayak at Point Reyes national seashore! Enjoy exploring Bodega Bay, Dillon Beach, and the redwood forests 15 minutes away. The perfect romantic, creative or family getaway. Enjoy quality time with your travel companion or alone in this bucolic setting.

Where you’ll be

Valley Ford, California, United States

Just out of the coastal fog zone, you'll have a lovely ten minute drive to Dillon Beach and Tomales Bay with its famed oysters. Set in beautiful west Marin, only 1.2 hours north of San Francisco, the turn-of-the-century converted wooden schoolhouse and this charming studio, converted from the original schoolhouse horse stable. The property lies near the heart of the Sonoma wine country and the rugged Sonoma Coast. The house is a five minute drive to Valley Ford and the town of Bodega; 10 minutes to Tomales and Bodega Bay, 15 minutes to Sebastopol, 20 to Petaluma, or the local Rancheria Graton Casino, 25 to Pt. Reyes Station and the spectacular Point Reyes peninsula.
