Sonoma cottage description

Experience a bit of Sonoma Wine Country history. Rose Cottage is a jewel of a house and is listed by the Sonoma County Historical Society. Rose Cottage was built in the 1920s during the California Craftsman period but it is heavily influenced by the earlier Victorian era. It was among the earliest houses built in Agua Caliente Park, a resort area where San Francisco residents could escape from the summer fog.
The original charm was left intact, but it has been modernized for comfort and convenience with central heat and A/C. For the convenience of guests needing to 'keep in touch' there is high-speed internet, with wifi. The gourmet kitchen is fully equipped with granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances and a wine refrigerator. The master bath has an extra-large walk in shower, while the guest bathroom has a genuine claw-foot tub. There is a romantic fireplace in the master bedroom and french doors that lead to the private patio. We have had the pleasure of hosting over two dozen honeymooners! Period details include high ceilings, beautiful crown mouldings, board and batten walls and some of the original fir wood floors. There is flat panel TV in each bedroom; the flat panel in the main living area is connected to a Blu-ray/DVD player which is internet connected. We supply plenty of DVDs and a delightful selection of CDs, to suit every taste. If you have a NetFlix or Cinemax account you can login to watch movies just like at home.
The main living room, kitchen and dining area is open, providing an extra large space for entertaining and relaxing with family and friends. A great space for celebrating holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, or just long weekends!
Rose Cottage is just minutes from the Sonoma Plaza (3.0 miles) for shopping and dining experiences, and within walking distance of the world famous Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa. Heading North on highway 12, you will visit dozens of the best wineries California has to offer.
Should you prefer to simply relax on the secluded, peaceful rear patio, it is fully equipped with gas BBQ, dining table, chairs and loungers. There is a charming front porch to watch the sun come up while having your morning coffee. From the porch, look out over the Heritage Rose garden, with its beautiful landscaping and majestic palm trees. When you close the elegant wrought iron fence behind you, you can leave the everyday behind and suspend time for just a little while.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2007

                      About the owner: My husband and I live near San Francisco and sometimes we just want to get away to some place that is quieter and slower. One of our favorite places is Sonoma. It is in the middle of wine country and moves at a much slower pace. The countryside is beautiful and the people are actually friendlier. We love older houses and when we first saw Rose Cottage we fell instantly in love with it. It has charm, character and a great setting only 3 miles from the Sonoma plaza. It is a great escape location and we love going there if only for a few days at a time.

                      Why the Owner Chose Sonoma:
                      Rose Cottage is just on the edge of winery row at the South end and you can be touring great wineries in a matter of minutes. It is not right in downtown so it is quieter and more relaxing. It is only a half mile from the Sonoma Mission Inn and SPA where we like to go for a glass of wine now and then.
