Bay Area Winery Staycation

Many Bay Area residents are finding themselves in an unusual spot this holiday season… torn between a much-needed vacation or staying home due to the COVID Pandemic. Well, instead of completely skipping that yearly vacation, what about opting for an amazing Bay Area Staycation? 

You might think, why stay in someone else’s home when I can stay in the comfort of my home at no additional charge? You’ll be surprised to learn that some Airbnb and VRBO properties include much, much, more than just a standard home with a basic backyard. Properties such as Mission Peak Ranch’s Airbnb includes social distanced activities such as canoeing, fishing or picnicking at the private lake, jumping on the trampoline, playing basketball on the half court, strolling through the vineyard with a glass of wine in hand, or even hiking a few easy private trails on their 150-acre property. If you or a member of your family love farm animals, you can even schedule a social distanced meet-and-greet with the ranch rescue horses, Annabelle and Pookie. Summer activities even include swimming in the beautiful pool located steps from the Airbnb home or stargazing outside on the hammock located at the lake. 

The home is one of five on the ranch that includes two bedrooms with a Queen bed in each room, 2 pullout couches, 2 full bathrooms, an upstairs living room with a smart 55” TV including Netflix, a fully stocked kitchen, and a laundry room with a washer and dryer. The hosts included snacks, complimentary local wine, and water bottles upon arrival. This Airbnb property in Fremont, CA, is less than 60 miles from the heart of San Francisco or 25 miles from San Jose making it the perfect location for a unique Bay Area staycation.
