The Dome is a wonderful getaway for families or a group of friends. It is a 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom 2-story home in the heart of the Anderson Valley wine country. Gaze at the stars from the hot tub, sample some fruit from the orchard, explore the redwoods and suspension bridge, swim in the Navarro River and visit local wineries and farms. A true country getaway! It shares the property with a cottage (periodically occupied by the owners), but maintains a feeling of privacy and has amazing views.

The space
In addition to the 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, the house includes a living room, dining room, kitchen, play room and TV area. Also included are a radio/CD player, TV (does not show any channels), VCR and DVD players, wireless internet access (no streaming), hot tub, outdoor shower, video and board game collection, hammocks, book library, gas grill and play structure. The kitchen is well stocked and includes all the basics plus a coffee maker, Nespresso machine, microwave, dishwasher, ice cream maker, washer and dryer.

Other things to note
We want you to know that we’re doing our part to help our Airbnb guests stay safe by cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces (light switches, doorknobs, cabinet handles, remotes, etc.) before you check in and following the Airbnb cleaning checklist based on recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). We have included a 24 hr. buffer period before your rental where no one will be in the house.

The Philo Dome is country living. Along with the amazing star-filled skies and quiet you don't find in the city, you also have ticks, poison oak, occasional bear and mountain lion sightings and the primary heat from a wood burning stove. Unwind from the bustle and settle into a slower pace of life. Internet is slow, there is no streaming and cell phones may not work. Please respect the quiet of the area.

Location

Philo, California, United States

Our neighbors include Blue Meadows Farm with an organic farm stand. Boonville, Philo and Navarro have several fantastic restaurants to enjoy during your stay.

Our favorite local attractions include...
Philo Apple Farm- Organic apple farm with self serve farm stand, cooking classes, orchard, and farm animals. Started by the owners of the acclaimed French Laundry Restaurant.

Wine Tasting- Over 20 wineries with even more tasting rooms. Favorites include Esterlina, Husch, Handley, Toulouse and Balo.

Anderson Valley Brewing Company- The Brewery opened its doors in 1987 making and selling its beer at the historic Buckhorn Saloon in Boonville which closed in 2009. In 1996 it moved to its current location at the intersection of 128 and 253 where it now produces over 15,000 barrels of internationally acclaimed beer per year. The Brewery has a tasting room and tours are offered daily.

Anderson Valley Historical Museum- Small collection of local, historical memorabilia from the sheep, farming and apple days, Pomo Indian artifacts (some collected from our property) and local cultural history.

Swimming Holes- Under the Philo-Greenwood Bridge on the way to Hendy Woods and Mile marker 3.65.

Gowan's- This roadside garden and orchard is located 2.5 miles north of Philo on Highway 128. The Gowan's and their ancestors, the Studebaker's have been growing at this site for 120 years. Jim and Jo Gowan are now in their mid seventies but you can still see them working at the stand. With the help of their children and grandchildren they farm 250 acres of apples and peaches plus a 25 acre vegetable garden.

Hendy Woods State Park- This state park is inland along the Navarro River, along Hwy 128, 8 miles northwest of Boonville. It's inland location makes the 690-acre park much warmer and sunnier than the parks along the coast, and less crowded, but it contains groves of giant old-growth redwood trees, cool swimming holes in the river, and shady, developed campgrounds.

Navarro River Redwoods State Park- The redwoods continue to the coast along the Navarro River and Hwy 128. This strip is called the Navarro River Redwoods and has turnouts for picnicking and river access. The beach at the end of 128 is a favorite.

On the Coast

Van Damme State Park- This park, just south of Mendocino, consists of a pygmy forest, a fern canyon along Little River, a bog, a sandy beach along a cove and the river mouth, and a protected underwater preserve. The visitor's center here has displays on the undersea environment. The campground here is very much in-demand. Reservations are a must.

Manchester State Park- This 5-mile long windswept beach is a beachcomber's paradise. Creeks draining redwood canyons, ocean currents, and winds pile huge amounts of driftwood onto the beach, which beachgoers have built into makeshift shelters from the wind. Also here is a marsh, pond, dunes, and a lagoon. To the south is Point Arena and the picturesque Point Arena Lighthouse.

Greenwood State Beach- This beach is 15 miles north of Point Arena. A visitors center in town has displays on life in a lumber town of the 1800's.

The Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens- The Gardens offer everything from colorful displays to thunderous waves. The mild maritime climate makes it a garden for all seasons, attracting gardeners and nature lovers. With manicured formal gardens, a dense coastal pine forest, native flora and habitats, fern-covered canyons, camellias, rhododendrons, magnolias and conifers, heaths and heathers, and flower-filled coastal bluffs overlooking the blue ocean, the garden is a jewel on the Pacific Coast. Located on Hwy 1 between Mendocino and Fort Bragg

Mendocino- Mendocino is a charming town well known for its Victorian structures and spectacular coastal views. Mendocino offers a variety of quaint shops, restaurants and fine galleries. There is a nice kid friendly beach, Big River Beach where the Pacific Ocean meets the Big River to form Mendocino Bay. A picturesque path that runs atop the southern bluffs (if you walk EAST), will take you to the wooden staircase that leads down to this sandy beach. The trailhead is located behind the white church as you enter the town of Mendocino. Otherwise, drive South out of Village and take first left before bridge to drive to sand.

Elk- The city of Elk, also known to some as Greenwood, is one of the most stunning stops along the Northern California coast. In this little town of about 200, you'll find amazing views of the Pacific Ocean, small galleries, several restaurants and a great hike in (1/2 mi) beach.

Skunk Train- The Skunk train ride runs 40 miles between Fort Bragg on the coast and Willits on US Highway 101. You will cross many of the 30 bridges and trestles along the scenic redwood route (almost one bridge for each mile of track!), as well as pass through one of the line's two deep mountain tunnels! This is the ultimate in California western railroad.

B. Bryan Preserve in Point Arena- A tour at B. Bryan Preserve is designed to give the visitors and animals plenty of space to roam while allowing for close up viewing. Not a zoo, it is a preserve, and so provides open space for the preservation of endangered species. Located on 100 acres, the antelope and zebra are allowed to live in their near-natural environment.

Ross Ranch- Go for a private horseback ride on spectacular Manchester Beach's miles of unspoiled sand and surf. Rocks, driftwood, creeks, birds and seastacks dot this vast expanse of beach.
