About: We are both educators. I also volunteer as a docent for the Sonoma County Park and Recreation Department. I speak to visitors, local school children and adults about migrating and local whales, tide pools and abundant wild life in the area. We would like visitors to enjoy our cottage as we have. The river has a remarkable calming effect.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: The property is private. It has a small beach to launch kayaks and enjoy the spectacular wildlife and view.
