Full House Farm: Harmony With Horses

About Us

Harmony With Horses

Vacation Rental
"It was from them that I first learned of the intelligence that lurks in nonhuman nature, the ability that an alien form of sentience has to echo one’s own, to instill a reverberation in oneself that temporarily shatters habitual ways of seeing and feeling, leaving one open to a world all alive, awake, and aware."
David Abram,
The Spell of the Sensuous

There are many different aspects to this beautiful place in Sebastopol, West Sonoma County, California. First and foremost, it is a 23-acre mostly wild land. We have invited the wildlife to be at home here and for that reason you will often be able to see deer, raccoon, bobcat, and fox. Playing in the air currents above the land on a daily basis are the graceful Turkey Vultures, chatty Red-Shoulder Hawks and reserved, confident Red-tail Hawks. All visitors are welcome to enjoy the private walking trails that wind through the forest, oak groves and meadows on the property.

We have two turn-key vacation rentals well placed at the top of the property for gorgeous sunset views and easy access to our private walking trails. One is a 3 bedroom/2 bath rental home and the other is a small, intimate Studio Cottage. Both rentals are surrounded with lush landscapes. The large home has a small waterfall and fish pond that can be heard from the wisteria-covered patio and from the kitchen, as well as two of the bedrooms. The Studio Cottage has a lovely wrap around patio on two sides and a spacious deck facing the views on the west side. Both rentals have hot tubs nestled beneath majestic oaks where privacy is assured and views abound. Inside the large house there are seven comfortable beds (2 queens, 1 double, and 4 twins) easily sleeping up to ten people. The Studio Cottage has a comfy pillowtop queen, sleeping 1-2 guests. For your enjoyment, there are bookshelves filled with interesting books and magazines, a full video library and DVD player, puzzles and games. The Studio Cottage has a beautiful gaming table with chess, checkers, a felt top for cards and even a roulette wheel. The large home has a stereo, Playstation and video games, and satellite tv.

In both rentals the kitchen is fully equipped and stocked with bowls of fresh organic eggs from our own hens, locally baked organic bread, coffee, tea, butter and jam. On the table is a complimentary bottle of local wine.

Upon arrival to either rental, you will drive down your private drive and find the key waiting for you. The best of Sonoma County awaits you here!

One of the most attractive activities here at Full House Farm revolves around the horses, whether you are just visiting or would like to become a regular student. Harmony With Horses is designed to educate "kids" from 2-92, with the horses being the real teachers and Expansion Coach, Christine Cole, skillfully guiding students. There are mentoring programs for kids and inspiring, life-changing programs for adults. This is not your ordinary horseback riding experience, but rather a journey into the language of the horse. Christine's 30+ years of coaching is a rare find, unique in it's depth and insight.

Besides the horses, there are sheep, chickens, and rabbits. Tours are available for small and large groups. You can learn about micro-farming, organic foods and sustainable living. There are picnic facilities if you are planning just a visit for the day, rather than an overnight stay.

So, whether you are seeking an outing with your family, a special vacation, or an experience with horses that matches no other, regardless of the season there is something here for you.
