Property description

This quaint and private guesthouse at the rear of a large lot in Sonoma's lovely Eastside is a private wooded retreat walking distance to the historic Sonoma Plaza. It is perfect for couples or small families, and we are pet friendly! Only 45 minutes north of San Francisco, historic Sonoma Valley is one of California's oldest towns, as well as the birthplace of the California wine industry. The historic and scenic town plaza, complete with duck ponds, play grounds, and weekly farmer's markets, offers an array of dining and shopping options. The valley is within 10 miles of more than 30 wineries and home to a number of historic sites, including the northernmost of California's famous missions, General Vallejo's home, and Jack London's homestead. Sonoma is thought of as the more 'laid-back' wine country, and its welcoming attitude and world-class amenities make a very special place indeed.

The cozy guesthouse, with a dark wood exterior and light interior, is situated in private wooded setting. It is 120+ yards off the already quiet residential street and is separated and blocked from view of the main house by mature trees and a free standing outbuilding. It has two bedrooms (two queens), plus a very comfy queen sofa bed, one full and one half bath, and is furnished as a 'modern cottage'. There is a full kitchen, a dining room table that could seat six, as well as back deck for outdoor dining. It is pet friendly and has a (low) fenced back yard. Next to cottage is a redwood play structure with swing and slide. There is central heating, window unit A/C, TV with limited cable, WiFi, and an iPod-ready stereo.

Please note that the cottage is located in a quiet residential neighborhood, and we live in another house on the same property. Please respect our neighbors and NO PARTIES. As well, outside noise is to be kept at a minimum after 9.00pm.
The cottage is maxed out at four people.

Refundable damage deposit required. Signed rental contract and the aforementioned damage deposit required to hold dates.
