Sebastopol cottage description
Full House Farm Studio Cottage; a cozy room with full kitchen, living area/sleeping area, plus a full bath with beautiful claw foot tub under a skylight(Sleeps 1-2.)
Our intimate and private, turn-key, studio cottage vacation rental is well placed at the top of the property for gorgeous sunset views. This cottage is surrounded with lush, wild landscape, including oaks, pine, and bay laurel viewed from the kitchen, dining area and deck.
The two-person hot tub is nestled beneath majestic oaks where privacy is assured and views abound.
Inside this cottage, there is a well designed living/sleeping area with a luxurious queen pillowtop bed under an opening skylight. The kitchen is fully equipped and there is dining with a view of the oak grove and westward hills. The dining table has the added pleasure of transforming into a gaming table. Beneath the table cloth and the glossy Italian inlaid woodwork of the table top lie checkers, chess, a card table, backgammon, and a roulette wheel complete with all the pieces. This table promises to keep you and your partner happy for days! In the living room/bedroom there are bookshelves filled with interesting books and magazines.
To further entertain you, there is a full video library and flat screen DVD player that swivels for viewing in either the dining area or living area.
Upon arrival you will drive down your private drive and find the key waiting for you. Inside you will find a bowl of fresh organic eggs from our own hens, locally baked organic bread, coffee, tea, butter, and jam. On the table is a complimentary bottle of local wine.
And, incredibly, there is more! Throughout the year, you are welcome to stroll through our organically grown garden to pick fresh fruits and vegetable for your meals. During the summer you can find tomatoes, potatoes, corn, strawberries, string bean, cucumbers, and more. In the winter there are a variety of veggies like broccoli, cauliflower, and several types of lettuces. The best of Sonoma County awaits you here!
If it is a farm experience you desire, come and learn about the sheep, chickens, goats, and horses. You can even assist us while we care for the animals. Our popular Farm Tours, usually $20 per person, are included in your stay and are available for small and large groups. You can learn about micro-farming, organic foods, and sustainable living. There are picnic facilities if you are planning just a visit for the day, rather than an overnight stay.
One of the most attractive activities here at Full House Farm revolves around the horses, whether you are just visiting or would like to become a regular student. Harmony With Horses is designed to invite you to learn horses communicate with each other and how applicable that is to our own relationships, with the horses being the real teachers and Life-Coach, Christine Cole, skillfully guiding students. There are mentoring programs for kids and inspiring, life-changing programs for adults. This is not your ordinary horseback riding experience, but rather a journey into the language of the horse while you interact with them on the ground. Christine's nearly 40 years of coaching is a rare find, unique in its depth and insight.
There are many different aspects to this beautiful place in Sebastopol, West Sonoma County, California. We proudly maintain the 23-acres as mostly wild land. We have invited the wildlife to be at home here and for that reason you will often be able to see deer, raccoon, bobcat, and fox.
Playing in the air currents above the land on a daily basis are the graceful turkey vultures, chatty red-shoulder hawks, and reserved, confident, red-tail hawks. All visitors are welcome to enjoy the private walking trails that wind through the forest, oak groves, and meadows on the property.
So, whether you are seeking an intimate getaway, a quiet retreat, a home base for exploring Sonoma County, or an experience on a farm or with horses that matches no other, there is something here for you.

Lovely cottage tucked away under the trees

We had such a nice time on our honeymoon!! The cottage was very clean and well kept, the hot tub was perfect for a relaxing soak each night and you really are in the middle of the woods! It was peaceful and perfect for what we were looking for. Christine was great and had eggs fresh from their hens, bread and goats milk for us along with a welcoming bottle of wine!

Perfect, relaxing home base for Sonoma adventure!

My boyfriend and I booked this lovely guest house at Christine's farm last September and couldn't have had a better time! We ended up getting engaged just days before our arrival, and were thrilled to be able to celebrate in such a quiet piece of heaven. The house is just as described, and if anything, the pictures don't do it justice. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour Christine gave us through both the upper and lower gardens, and she even gave us baskets to collect fresh organic produce as we went! With a few additions from the local Whole Foods, just 5-10 minutes down the road, we were able to whip up a delicious dinner with our finds in the cottage's well-appointed kitchen. The house was a perfect home base for our exploration of the vineyards, gourmet restaurants, and natural wonders (redwoods and Sonoma coastline!) the area has to offer. The local bread, jam, and wine Christine put out for us upon arrival were extra special touches. We loved every moment of our time here and would visit again in a heartbeat, if for nothing more than the hot tub and sounds of crickets chirping at night! Thank you again!!

About the owner: Dave and Christine work as partners to maintain the beautiful, mostly wild 23-acre farm called Full House Farm. Dave has his own ranch and home maintenance business, so is busy helping out others in Sebastopol and the surrounding area. Christine spends the majority of her time on the farm, managing the animals and gardens. She also coaches Life Skills with the horses as her partners, something she has done for nearly 40 years. Both Dave and Christine love love sampling the delicious foods found in Sonoma County. They also enjoy traveling in their camper and cruising on their Harley!
Why the Owner Chose Sebastopol:
Full House Farm has been in existence for half a century. It started in Los Altos Hill in 1958 and moved to Sebastopol in 1994. The original Full House Farm is still in Los Altos Hills and is owned by Christine's mother, Helena Cole. The vacation rental in Sebastopol was "born" when Christine purchased the farm house next door to her in 1999, which left the home she was in at the time available to rent. Rather than rent long-term, Christine decided to develop it as a vacation rental. Full House Farm Vacation Rental & Retreat and the Studio Cottage have since been in the New York Time, New York Post, Canadian and European publications and most recently in the popular online magazine, Weekend Sherpa.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Full House Farm offers the unique experience of being able to go into your own private garden to harvest fresh vegetable, fruits, and herbs. There are two gardens on the property, both maintained for the guests. Additionally, staying at the farm offers visitors the opportunity to take a Farm Life Tour free of charge. This tour demonstrates what it is like to live on a small farm, offers ideas on how to live sustainably, and often provides delicious taste treats like Goat Milk ice cream or fresh strawberries. There are also private walking trails on the property for the enjoyment of all visitors.
