About Mark and Lucy Herman

We are wine lovers and avid gardeners. We enjoy traveling and have made friends all over the world. They all love to come and visit us!

Mark and Lucy Herman purchased this house in 1999

Why Mark and Lucy Herman chose Santa Rosa

We are in a spectacular spot on the third mountain ridge in from the Pacific Ocean.

Sonoma is on the fourth mountain ridge and Napa is on the fifth mountain ridge.

The property is at 1000 feet so we are often above the weather, enjoying bright sunshine while the valley below and the view all the way west is shrouded in fog. It is a incredible sight. Or occasionally we are in the cloud and there is soft mist all around- very lovely. It is very private but very close to everything too.

Relaxation at it's best!

  • 5 of 5

This is such a lovely home! We were welcomed by a basket full of goodies and beautiful views. The hot tub was fabulous. Lower bedroom with the patio is a great place to enjoy morning coffee and quiet contemplation. If you want a secluded quiet getaway this is the place for you!

We will definitely be back for a second visit.

Excellent property in a beautiful, highly convenient location

  • 5 of 5

I brought my 4 kids to Santa Rosa for a family weekend and found this property through VRBO. The house is neat and tidy with gorgeous views. Everyone who visited while we were there was blown away. I found the online descriptions of property features were 100% accurate. We didn’t have any issues but owners were close by and responded readily to texts - clearly attentive. I’m already wondering when we can come back.

Map

Car: necessary

The house is secluded yet incredibly convenient - from the bottom of our road it is 5 minutes to Highway 101 access or to supermarket and Starbucks, 10 minutes to Sonoma State University and the Green Music Center, 10 minutes to Graton Casino, 10 minutes to downtown Santa Rosa, 20 minutes to downtown Petaluma, 25 minutes to Healdsburg/Dry Creek/Alexander Valley. 25 minutes to Valley of the Moon/Sonoma. 40 minutes to Napa Valley. 20 minutes to World famous Sears Point Raceway. 13 minutes to Sonoma County Fairgrounds. There are hundreds of world-class wineries within a 30-45 minute drive.

San Francisco is an hour's drive south down Highway 101, with many interesting stops along the way, including Petaluma, Tiburon, Sausalito, Stinson Beach and Mill Valley. Kayaks and canoes can be rented at the Monte Rio beach on the Russian River during the summer months. See majestic redwoods at Armstrong Redwoods and Muir Woods. Or take the scenic drive to Bodega Bay and the beach. Enjoy its good seafood restaurants, and see where Alfred Hitchcock's 'The Birds' was filmed.

With easy access to Highways 1, 12, 116 and 101, it is an ideal spot from which to see what the region has to offer; each area you visit is a spectacularly beautiful drive, but not an unbearable distance.
