Sheep Tight!

Spend the Night at Sheep Dung Properties in Anderson Valley near Boonville

You’re not going to have to count sheep to get a good night’s sleep at Sheep Dung’s beautiful property in Anderson Valley near Boonville. Sheep Dung is indeed a memorable name, and that suits this place perfectly: four modern cottages—tucked far apart from each other among 500 acres of rolling hills—create blissful solitude. And it's dog-friendly!

Couples will like the highest cottage in the area: “The Oaks” is spacious inside and out, with sweeping valley views enhanced by oak trees dotting the hillsides.

“The Breezeway” is a two-bedroom cottage that’s decked out, as in two decks to spread out on for some serious lounging. Whichever cottage you go for, you’re not going to go wrong … they’ve all got the goods with kitchens and barbecue spaces.

It’s really just a matter of how much room you want, and what’s available! These private gems can book out fast.

All the beautiful outdoors scenery flows indoors too because the cottages are almost exclusively windows where it counts! Not to worry though, you still get premier privacy, other than a quail or two sauntering across the grass or other birds flying by for a quick hi.

Adirondacks are set towards views of the famous wine valley below, with seclusion coming from the surrounding scenery of waving tall grasses and foothills, some being quietly groomed by … what else, sheep.

Mornings are peaceful as you sip coffee from the tranquility of your abode, and after a day of wine tasting or hiking in redwoods at nearby Hendy Woods State Park, come back and soak in a sunset from your patio, then grill up some dinner and open those bottles of Anderson Valley pinots!

On clear nights, the sky is a marvel of crisp stars, so sit back and stare at the cosmos before turning in for the night, to sheep tight!

Sheep Dung Properties’ cottages are collectively under the umbrella name of The Other Place, located two and a half hours north of San Francisco, 1.2 miles up a country road off Hwy. 128 just east of Boonville. Reservations can be made by calling (707) 895-3979. Anderson Valley Market in Boonville has food and drinks, or bring your own. Sheep Dung is dog-friendly!
