Property description

CAROLINE’S COTTAGE, a Delightful Place to Stay

This quaint 1890’s farmhouse with covered wraparound deck and expansive yards has been completely renovated and newly decorated for your comfort and pleasure. The house has 2 bedrooms and two full baths. Both bedrooms have ultra queen beds with luxurious linens and new furnishings.

The kitchen is fully equipped and has a new gas stove, refrigerator with ice maker, dishwasher, and a laundry room with washer and dryer. There are sliding glass doors off the kitchen that open onto a porch that overlooks the large side garden…a great place for afternoon wine, famous cheeses and fresh Basque bread.

Caroline’s Cottage has a large front yard with off-street parking, large side yard for entertaining, spacious private backyard with patio area, large hot tub and grass area filled with birds.

The spacious and serene settings mingle with nature all day. …vacation time can be filled with a variety of activities: playing at the neighborhood park, strolling through meadows full of blooming flowers, visiting historic wineries and champagne caves, riding trains at Train Town,renting a bike down the street, attending jazz, film and art events at the historic town plaza, hiking historic trails and lodges. Best of all, meet the friendly faces of the local community…also a secret jewel, at the open markets, in the boutiques, at the museums and festivals, or at our refurbished Sebastiani Theater.

(Nov. through Feb.) Enjoy Sonoma when it is not crowded! Reunite with family and friends, Need a wonderful place to Entertain a Corporate Client, Have a lovers' Getaway, or Just an opportunity to drink great wine and dine on fabulous food? We have special rates!!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1982

About the owner: My husband Doug and I have owned this property since 1982. Doug has done most of the designing, remodeling and maintenance, and I have done much of the design and decorating and shopping. We love the projects because we love the home. It has such a positive unique spirit and always feels comfortable when we stay there.

Why the Owner Chose Sonoma:
My husband Doug and I have owned this property since 1982. We felt the home had a strong Italian spirit having been in a family for 2 generations. It was quaint, on a large lot for privacy, yet was so near to town. At the time it was surrounded by hay fields with horses, donkeys and cows. It was truly bucolic. Since then, a neighborhood has been built on three sides, but our home, our Cottage farmhouse, has retained its proud spirit and welcomes those to cook, relax, enjoy and just feel good.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
Old World charm and comfort; Close to town, yet quiet and peaceful; superb kitchen, although small is efficient for meals; ability to sit, relax, sip wine, or eat on three sides of the house...European style bedding with high thread count linens
