Property description

Unique one-room cottage with vaulted ceilings and loft is a maximum-efficiency get-away for up to 6 people. Double bed folds into wall when not in use, couch converts into double bed, and the loft with a padded, carpeted floor accomodates two in sleeping bags, with hexagonal window overlooking the private patio area. Flat-screen TV with surround sound, local phone and wireless internet service, washer and dryer, natural linens provided.
The Italian-style design features a spacious tiled shower, hammered copper kitchen farm sink, heavy-duty gas cooktop, roomy antique cabinet, microwave, toaster oven and refrigerator.
This is the smaller of two rental houses on a 1-1/2 acre park in a quiet and intimate Tahoe-like setting. Just an hour from San Francisco, the cottage is on the grounds where Lu Watters (1912-1989), traditional jazz musician of international fame, built his home.
Conveniently located near highway 101, the wine country, 3 miles from Sonoma Stage University.
