Wine Country: Our Barn for a Weekend

So I've brought up the barn in the past post, but it's time for it's big reveal.

To start, I went on a mad hunt for a home for us to stay in once we found out that Emily and Sarah were both going to come and join us for the last weekend of our vacation.  Just from my point of view, it was going to be a much nicer experience if we were all in the same place and not venturing off to our own hotel rooms each night.  Not to mention that the cost of hotel rooms during harvest in the valley are a crap ton of money excessive.  Good ol' VRBO (Vacation Rental By Owner...not a paid advertisement CLEARLY, but if you need a rental house, check out their site.  So many options in all price ranges).  After days of stressing to find a perfect place with proper accommodations, I stumbled across the Barn post.
Just imagine: a barn built in the 1840's in New Jersey.  No metal rods in the entire framing.  Disassembled and then reassembled in Sonoma.  Styled by an acclaimed Interior Designer.  Featured in Pottery Barn Catalogs for crying outloud!
I think the pictures speak for themselves:

My perch for most of the time there

The garden, with eggplant, tomatoes, herbs, pumpkins, watermelon, green onion, and lettuce varietals

Out to the little shed was a coal burning stone set grill that Terry cooked on Saturday night.

I already can't wait to go back!

Here's the owners website about the Barn as well as some press about the process the owner went through to have it reconstructed.

If there is ever a time you are looking for a rental home in Sonoma, you need to stay here!  Such an amazing experience!
