San Joaquin County, California, United States
Wine Crest Estate is a 1915 gem of a farmhouse shaded and protected by 100 year old trees in the middle of 200 acres of carefully tended vineyard. It's the perfect place to kick back and relax after a long shift. Sit on the pool deck, listen to the birds, watch the sunset. The grounds are 2.5 acres of fully fenced and gated park like setting. Old roses, ancient trees, a lot of succulents. A hammock. Your room is upstairs at the back of the house with both east and west facing windows. Private bath, large walk in closet. Stairs. Wine Crest sits in the middle of a 200 acre producing vineyard which means sometimes there is spraying, pruning and harvesting that will impact us (dust and noise). The vineyard is farmed by McManis Family Wines adhering to Lodi Sustainable guidelines. Spraying is usually performed in the late evening and impacts us for a few hours. 2.5 acres of gated, tended estate, surrounded by vineyards. The house was built in 1915 and has been lovingly cared for and judiciously updated over the years. It is an inviting and grand old home. Wine Crest is a place apart from the hustle and bustle of work and city life. At the end of your day, you will feel the stress slide away as you drive up the drive. Your hosts Gord and Annette are friendly and inclusive. You will be invited to participate with them and their friends for shared meals, casual BBQs, casual and formal wine tastings, holiday celebrations and the annual Polar Bear Plunge if you are in residence over New Years. And, please know that the house is big enough that if you choose to not join in, you have your own space to retreat to. Arrive as strangers, leave as friends. Housekeeping services are provided once a month. Guest is responsible for laundering linens and towels. 1/3 of a very large fridge (off the kitchen) is provided for each room as is a dedicated cupboard for dry goods. The kitchen is shared and well equipped. 2 ovens, large cook-top, toaster oven, toaster, coffee maker, microwave, food processor, magic bullet, bread maker, Sous vide, vacuum sealer, salt, pepper, cooking oil and a gazillion spices and herbs. Along with your room/bathroom you are welcome to hang out in the kitchen, nook, dining room, spacious living room, patio, pool, hot tub and the 2.5 acres of garden. There are chickens free ranging on the grounds during the day, & ducks in the duck yard - yes, that means free eggs when they are laying. As we are in the country you can expect to come across all manner of critter and fowl. We often hear the coyotes at night. We've seen a deer on the driveway once. A whole squad of vultures another time. What you will see is squirrels and birds, lots of birds. We have two other rooms available as well. Please ask for details.
