Glen Ellen is a town of less than 800 located in the heart of Sonoma Valley. It's truly a romantic, sleepy little town that is a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
ABOUT GLEN ELLEN
The town is famous for the location of the former home of the writer Jack London who lived in the area in the early 20th century. His estate has now become the 39-acre Jack London State historic park and attracts a number of visitors who want to hike the park’s trails and explore the historic buildings. In fact, one could say Jack London’s life embodies the differences between Napa and Sonoma—rugged, and full of nature, whereas Napa is characterized more by classy boutiques and restaurants.
