We call the property Slick Stone Ranch because of all of the geodes, quartz and rocks on the property! Keep an eye out — they're really beautiful.
We hope you enjoy the charm of being on a vineyard as much as we do. Depending on when you come, there might be a tractor running through the vines or folks working in with the grapes — they’ll never be at the house or in the yard, but it’s pretty cool to watch the process!
We provide personal amenities including soap, shampoo, conditioner and body lotion, paper products, kitchen necessities such as dishwashing detergent, dishwasher soap and trash bags. The kitchen is stocked with the essential stapes: coffee, tea, olive oil, vinegar, salt, pepper, and spices.

My only regret staying here was that it wasn’t for a longer time. This farmhouse was so dreamy - fully stocked with just about anything you could think of to make you feel like you are truly at home. We came in the summer and it was in the upper 90s but the wall a/c units quickly brought the house to comfortable temperatures. The house is decorated so stylishly and still cozy. We even got to bring our pups with us. The water did smell of sulfur but given its a more remote area, it makes sense. Definitely not something we’d knock stars off for because everything else about the place was so perfect. I’d definitely come back to stay here in the future be highly recommend.
Loved the property, the house was so adorable, clean and comfortable. We had 4 adults along with 2 young children and still had lots of room!
The property is fantastic! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay as the location is lovely (on a working vineyard), it was clean, and it had everything we needed for a fun weekend in wine country. We will surely be staying again!
