Sebastopol cottage description

Perfectly located, you will find our 'Little Bird Cottage just the ideal place to stay. You can easily access major highways and roads to see all of Sonoma county and more,yet we are tucked away down a quiet private road. How perfect! and we just added AIR CONDITIONING:)

We are excited to welcome you to our owner built and designed ground level studio located on our acre and half property here in Sebastopol. We are near, but you won't even know we are there:)

We call it 'Little Bird Cottage', because we have an abundant number of Finch and Chicadees everywhere .The brand new complete kitchen has everything you need to prepare your own meals for longer stays if you like, but Sebastopol has a wonderful variety restaurants for you to choose from.

A beautiful hand-crafted 'Potterybarn' like bed, covered with high-end quality linens, pillows, and throws await you after a long day of traveling, sight seeing or visiting friends and family.

Out front of the studio you will find a full porch for enjoying that evening glass of vino you bought while wine tasting, or want to sun yourself a bit?, then relax in the Adirondeck chairs under the vintage Granvenstein apple tree.

From June through Sept. there is berry season;raspberries or boysenberries might show up on the porch to add to your morning breakfast ,yogurt or ice cream, and there is a lemon tree just outside your door.

It's a peaceful neighborhood, beautiful surroundings and close to everything you might want to see in the area. We can't wait to show you this cozy little spot.

                  About the owner: Ken is a sheet metal worker, and Kathy is a retired administrator from a large HMO, sewing instructor/interior designer, homemaker and loves crafts of all kinds. Our youngest son is off in college, and our oldest son is grown and married, and we have our first little grandbaby girl:). We are a hardworking family that enjoys the outdoors, small gardening projects, making and building things ourselves. We feel fortunate to be able to share this beautiful county with you.

                  Why the Owner Chose Sebastopol:
                  We have lived in Sebastopol for 18 years. Raised our children here and wanted some property for them to roam around on, and Ken wanted to live near the coast for Salmon fishing.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  Our property is very convenient to neighboring towns, the coast, the Redwoods, and beautiful vineyards.
