Come, stay and enjoy!

Owner info

About the owner: On returning to the U.S. after living in Europe for 5 years on a dime and teaching English, I found the small town of Sonoma and settled here while going to Sonoma State to get my master,s degree and raise my daughters. Sonoma County had the feeling of being in Europe, especially Italy, with the climate and vineyards and isn't far from Marin where I grew up. While still teaching English as a second language, I opened a Mexican import store in a historic Sonoma house order to indulge my love of Mexico and traveling. My historic house is now a wonderful vacation rental just a block from Sonoma,s Plaza.

Why the Owner Chose Cazadero:
Cazadero and the coast provides a peaceful balance to Sonoma. It has always been a favorite Summer vacation area for my family. My grandparents came from Vienna and vacationed in Cazadero in the days when they had to take a train from San Francisco. I have photos of them picnicking on Austin Creek in the 1920s , my grandfather, who loved the redwoods who was a horticulturist, walking in Armstrong woods and my favorite aunt Margariet sitting on the beach at Austin Creek. when she was 16. In honor of my Austrian family Deer creek cottage has the history, decor and charm of the old world.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Deer Creek Cottage is located off a dead end road in a quiet area away from Cazadero highway. It is surrounded by tall Redwoods and has a sweet, sunny meadow which leads to Austin Creek and a dipping pool which usually has water all year and its own little beach. It's location being only about 10 minutes from Duncan Mills, the cost, and the Russian River, there are a variety of near by activities - kayaking, hiking, biking and even wine tasting.
