Enjoy the Napa Valley lifestyle from your own private estate nestled in a hidden valley with rolling hills of Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. Located just 5 minutes from Calistoga and the world's finest wineries, spas and dining.

The space

Enjoy the Napa Valley lifestyle from your own private estate nestled in a hidden valley just minutes from the world's finest wineries, spas and dining.

This beautiful 5,500 square foot Mediterranean style house is nestled in a hidden valley on 40 acres with 10 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon, hiking galore, a private lake, orchard and heated swimming pool with integrated jacuzzi hot tub. You'll have all the comforts of home with complete privacy and security.

The property is only 6 minutes from Calistoga but a world away. The paved private drive winds 1/2 mile through meadows and forest where you'll see small deer, rabbits, wild turkeys and little partridges. Hike into its pristine forests or to the summit with a breathtaking view of Mount St. Helena. The lake wildlife includes ducks, geese, egrets and blue heron; night sounds are frogs, owls and fish jumping. We are away from city lights so the night star gazing is inspiring.

The house features 5 bedrooms, 4 1/2 bathrooms, large living room, library, wine cellar, family room, dining room, large gourmet kitchen, workout room and large fully screened in porch next to the kitchen plus a laundry room. The family room has a new 71" HDTV with BluRay DVR plus Nintendo Wii with 4 remotes and a few fun multi-player games, living room workout room have HDTVs too. All TVs are flat screens with DirecTV DVR.

The 5 bedrooms include the Master Suite with a California King bed and large bathroom with his and hers vanities, steam shower, large Jacuzzi tub and separate compartment for the toilet & bidet. The other 4 Guest Bedrooms have Queen sized beds (2 Heavenly Beds and 2 Foam tops) with a woodland or lake view. Two bedrooms have private bathrooms with shower and the other two share a bathroom with a jacuzzi tub/shower. See photos for more detail.

The private 2 acre lake can be enjoyed from the 12' x 8' dock pad or use either of the two boats (electric 2-seater bass boat and canoe). Lake is perfect for fly fishing or cast fishing. Fishing gear available on site. The lake has bass and sunnies so you can choose to keep or catch and release like we do (no license required). Biggest bass we've caught and returned to the lake weighed 2 lbs!

Front and back lawns are nice for family gatherings. Indoor/outdoor living spaces with French doors and large redwood deck on the lake side of the house. The pool is 20' x 40' with a jetted hot tub and electric pool cover.

Hike and explore the entire 40 acre property on trails through forest and vineyards. The property is surrounded by 7' high deer fencing and gated at the entrance for security and to protect the 10 acre working vineyard - the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes grown here are used in the prestigious Artemis brand produced by Stags Leap Wine Cellars. The wine makers, vineyard managers and workers come and go throughout the growing season - June to October - cultivating the grapes to perfection.

Calistoga is a destination resort town at the north end of the Napa Valley and features many world class restaurants, hot spring pools, health spas and of course famous wineries everywhere.

Easy access by car to other areas include 20 minutes to St. Helena or Santa Rosa, 40 minutes to Napa or Sonoma or 90 minutes to San Francisco or to the Pacific Ocean.

Gardener and pool maintenance person come once a week.

Ed and Polly's house is a true gem! Nestled in a forest next to beautiful vineyards and a lake and so close to so many wineries, this was, by far, the best place I have ever stayed in in the Napa Valley. Safe, clean, comfortable, big, and beautiful, with everything one would need to cook meals and relax. Absolutely lovely! Ed met us at the house for a full tour. So friendly and happy to show us how everything worked at the house... even the super cute electric boat for the lake. We hated to leave!!! Thank you Ed and Polly for such a lovely experience!

Response from Ed And Polly:
Thanks Laura, glad you enjoyed the place. You were a pleasure to host as well. And yes, leaving the food was fine - a little bonus for our housekeeper and us as well.

This expansive home served as a perfect venue for a family gathering of multiple generations. The secluded and spectacular location had everything we could need from a private pool to our own lake with fish. Set in the hills above Calistoga surrounded by vineyards we could not have found a more perfect place.

Ed and Polly's home is beautiful and was a perfect retreat for our group while spending a long weekend in wine country for a wedding. Communication with Ed from the time we booked until we checked out was always prompt and he even greeted us when we arrived to give us a tour of the property. Would definitely recommend for any type of group (families, friends, couples) spending time in Callistoga and you can easily get into the downtown area within 10-15 mins driving.

This is a lovely home with many, many wonderful details. The location is away from town & private, but 10 minutes from Calistoga with wonderful restaurants. (Be sure to make reservations for the top ones.) Cal Mart grocery is terrific, if pricey. Many wineries nearby. The house itself has a master suite wing that overlooks the pool & lake and has wonderful bathroom w/Jacuzzi. The other end of the house has 4 bedrooms with 3 baths & laundry. This layout worked very well for our family group of 9. The kitchen/grill on deck is very workable and we ate at home several evenings, sometimes in the dining room and sometimes on the screened porch. We spent hours in the pool/hot tub and "fishing" or day dreaming in the boats on the small lake. Lots of nearby hiking. Delightful family time.

The Calistoga house was a dream! Felt just enough off the grid but so close to all of what Napa has to offer within a mile. Our families had the best time together hanging out at the house, making dinners on the grill and riding the small motor boat on the lake. We wish we could have stayed longer. Ed & Polly were wonderful and attentive hosts.

Our stay was incredible. Ed was a wonderful, accommodating host. The house and grounds were stunning. One of the most relaxing trips we've ever been on. I highly recommend for anyone looking to go to Calistoga.

We love living in the Napa Valley, and whenever we travel we are happy to be able to return to our little slice of heaven. Since we both work in our company selling specialized equipment to health spas worldwide, we travel for work as well as pleasure. Our children are grown so our house is a little big for us now, but we both enjoy taking care of it and sharing it with others. Polly likes to fish and I enjoy everything to do with the water: sailing, swimming, etc. I like to keep busy with yard work (we have plenty of it), and keeping mother nature at bay with some help from my tractor.
