About the owner: To begin with, we'd like to introduce ourselves as proud residences and entrepreneurs in Sonoma. We are passionate about the beauty of the area, the kindness of the people, and the exquisite elements produced in Sonoma that make the quality of life here so wonderful. We bring that passion into the businesses we have created: Sonoma's Best Guest Cottages, and the adjoining store, Sonoma's Best. Both of these ventures have been labors of love, and we emphasize both of those words!
When we purchased the properties, they were in a serious state of disrepair, but we saw huge potential. The store was a time-worn building built in 1913 that had operated for decades as the Von Sydow Deli. Both the store and the 4 cottages required extensive work, and we spent four years restoring them and creating a place of beauty, tranquility, and taste.
In February 2007, the cottages were selected by Sunset magazine as one of the top 10 most romantic getaways in the West, including Hawaii, and there's good reason why. Each cottage has a living room, bedroom and fully-equipped kitchen with every appliance necessary to enjoy creating delicacies with fresh local products -- your own gourmet experience at your fingertips. Each cottage sits behind its own Provence wall, has its own gas BBQ grill, 2 bicycles and shares the use of a lovely garden with a fountain and rose beds. And all of the cottages sit behind an electric gate, providing guests with total privacy and security.
The old-fashioned landmark store, Sonoma's Best, which sits in the front of the cottage retreat property, offers food products for which the County of Sonoma is famous - artisan cheeses, charcuterie, wine , salads and soups, sandwiches, pastries and gelato - along with exquisite Blue Bottle Coffee.
Much of our life experiences has afforded us the opportunity to fine-tune our sense of quality & taste, translating that and hard work into successful businesses.
We hope to welcome you our special property!
