Welcome to The Valley Of The Moon! Glen Ellen, a little gem in the heart of the rolling green hills of wine country, is only 20 minutes from downtown Sonoma and prides itself on offering something amazing for everyone. Many incredibly gorgeous state parks and fabulous vineyards are just a few minutes away. Enjoy wilderness and fine wine at your doorstep in a beautiful, private home away from home at The Oak Haven. Relax, take a load off, you deserve it!

The space

Nestled among giant oak trees, hugging a sprawling forest and across from Morton's Warm Springs (open only during the summer months), The Oak Haven offers the welcome retreat of a private sanctuary.

Enjoy a glass of wine from one of the many local vineyards and see the deer, turkey and other birds that often emerge from the neighboring woods. When it rains, a gurgling stream borders the property flowing amid grey stones and golden leaves.

Featuring a spacious deck, grill, outdoor table with umbrella and ample seating, The Oak Haven is the perfect spot for drinking and dining in the sunshine or shade. Enjoy a hot, bubbling soak under the brilliant stars after dinner in a comfortable six person hot tub!

High, sloping, wooden ceilings, large windows, a dining table for six, hardwood floors, cozy couch, well appointed lighting and a pellet-burning fireplace create a relaxing experience with natural lighting and a quaint, rustic feel.

For indoor entertainment, high speed internet is readily available. Enjoy your preferred media on our portable 50 inch flat screen Apple TV and surround sound speaker bar. You can easily surf for movies, news, HBO shows, sports, iTunes and many more in high def. Apple TV also offers access to your personal iTunes music library from your laptop or iPhone using air play.

For reading enthusiasts, there's a plush lounging chair with a foot rest by the fireplace. Local hiking, biking and winery guide books, cook books, board games and classic short stories are nearby.

Crack a bottle of local, organic wine in our well appointed, fully stocked kitchen. Gleaming in black, silver and green with large sun lit windows, our kitchen also offers an electric stove top, a double oven, a large stainless steel fridge and ample appliances including a microwave, toaster, juicer, coffee grinder, tea kettle, coffee maker and french press.

Why I Fell In Love:

Waking up to the early morning sound of song birds and ravens while wandering outside with a steaming cup of hot coffee only to find a mother deer and her fawn gazing up at me calmly was one experience out of many that made me fall in love with this place.

Enjoying the intense greenery of the forest playing off the dappled light on the deck while lounging in a king size rocking chair and watching the sun fade to brilliant hues of red and gold with a glass of pinot noir was another.

Leaning out over the balcony in the pitch blackness of night (no street lights!) as crickets came to life under a blanket of twinkling stars was yet one more reason I fell in love.

Great spot and location nestled in the woods. It worked out perfectly for our family while we were in Sonoma for a wedding.

A great comfortable and nicely appointed house. All bedrooms are very nice, nice master bath and second bath. The house water quality is fine for showers, etc. It is very nice to have the bottled water for drinking. The location is also great and central to the local wineries and communities but in a very lovely setting and area. We would highly recommend.

Kelly's place was even better than described. It's in a beautiful setting and the house was large and comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed hanging out in the hot tub after a day of wine tasting and the selection of games kept us busy until bedtime. Definitely recommend!

Kelly's house is close to down town Sonoma. The perfect house for a group trip to wine country. There was a fully stocked kitchen. The air conditioning was great. The patio and hot tub areas were perfect for outdoor dining and fun especially since we went during a heat wave. The beds were unbelievably comfortable and the sheets so soft. Would definitely stay here again!

Kelly's home was a great place to stay. The location is perfect. Morton's pools were right across the street and the rest of Sonoma is within easy driving distance. Kelly was responsive to our questions and a great host. We would definitely stay at her home again.

Kelly as a host AND her home are not to be missed while in the Napa area!

Great location for a stay in California wine country. We attended a wedding at Chateau St Jean which is less than 3 miles away. And, Morton's Warm Springs is just across the street. Kelly is a very attentive caretaker not only in how she looked after us but of her home as well. The six of us were quite comfortable in the house. I'd be happy to stay here again if the occasion came up.
