Santa Rosa cabin description

Two night minimum. Three night minimum on major holiday weekends including fourth of July, Memorial Day and Labor Day.
We accept bookings of no longer than 15 nights.

This private, peaceful retreat is a free-standing cabin located on a dead-end country lane, surrounded by nature yet only minutes from downtown Santa Rosa. Wake to the sound of songbirds and the quacking of the ducks in year-round Santa Rosa Creek, bordering our property. Walk or bike directly into Spring Lake Park and Annadel State Parks, Sonoma County's premier outdoor recreation spots offering everything from a easy stroll around the lake on a paved path to a rugged off-road mountain biking adventure.
If you are touring the Wine Country, we are right at the gateway to Sonoma Valley, the famous Valley of the Moon, home to dozens of world-class wineries. Within a five-mile radius you can visit the tasting rooms of Ledson, St. Francis, Chateau St. Jean, and Kunde Estate, among others. And even if wine isn't your thing, Sonoma Valley is lovely any time of year.

Parkside Paradise Cottage has everything you need to make your stay comfortable:
• Fully equipped kitchen will be stocked with coffee, creamer, sweeteners, a selection of teas, butter & jam, and basic condiments for preparing meals. In season, we provide fresh eggs from our flock of chickens and produce from the garden. The kitchen includes a 2-burner gas stove, mini-fridge, microwave, coffee maker, toaster.
• Queen-size bed with memory foam mattress and 100% cotton sheets.
• Private bathroom with shower.
• Hairdryer, iron and ironing board.
• WiFi access.
• We are child-friendly.
• Guidebooks and maps to local attractions, and menus to nearby restaurants.
• TV with DVD player and a selection of DVDs (no cable network).
•Air conditioning

The cabin is decorated with original artwork by the hosts, both artists, and we welcome visitors to our art studio adjacent to the main house. You can also relax in the hammock, have a BBQ on the patio or make a fire in the outdoor fire pit.

During your stay we will completely respect your privacy, but we are close by if you have questions or need anything.

Keywords: Country setting close to town. Peaceful retreat close to wineries, Spring Lake Park and Annadel State Park. Mountain and road biking, bird watching, relaxing in nature.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1994

                      About the owner: Robin and Sim are lifelong artists, avid gardeners, and outdoor enthusiasts. In 2012 they retired from nearly 20 years of owning a retail art supply store in Santa Rosa. In addition to Parkside Cottage, they now own an art gallery in Santa Rosa, Chroma Gallery at 312 South A Street, Santa Rosa. http://chromagallery.net/ Sim teaches art classes and workshops at the gallery, and both enjoy working in their extensive organic garden, or hiking, biking & kayaking in nearby Spring Lake and Annadel Parks. Sim is a native of Chicago, but after living in Sonoma County since the '70's he qualifies as a native. Robin is a native Californian hailing from the Monterey Peninsula, and has also lived in Sonoma County since the '70's. Since 1994, they have been the careful stewards of their charming 1 acre property and are delighted to share it with visitors.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      The location of our property lets us enjoy a natural setting while being close to town, which cuts down on the time spent driving. At home, with the sounds of the creek, the birds, and the closeness of the park, we always feel 'away from it all.'
