Property description

Here is the perfect cottage for couples, individuals, writers, artists, or for those visiting family. There are many attractions that Sebastopol and the surrounding area have to offer.

Enjoy the morning on the porch sipping a hot drink from a handcrafted mug and listening to the birds singing in the trees. Outdoor kitchenette on porch. Organic seasonal fresh fruit, coffee, and tea are provided, and we have a library of books you are welcome to explore.

We carefully prepared our recently built studio for your pleasure and comfort. The windows open to a view of a living sculpture garden of succulents, grasses, bamboo, lavender and eucalyptus trees. There is a comfortable queen-sized bed. The high beamed ceiling adds a sense of spaciousness to the light bright cottage. The flooring is made of bamboo. The tiled bathroom has a skylight and a large shower, and for your convenience. There is a small refrigerator with freezer, a microwave, camper stove and a coffee and hot watermaker. The LED flat screen TV also has a DVD player and there is WIFI which you can turn on and off. Original art decorates the walls.

Your friendly, knowledgeable hosts can provide information about local attractions including wineries and breweries that offer tastings or events, art galleries, and live theater. Within 30 minutes to the west you can relax at Osmosis Spa and Garden in Freestone, enjoy the historic one-street town of Bodega, or take a walk along one of the many beaches or hills that the stunning Sonoma County coast offers.

Downtown Sebastopol is just ten minutes away; with its excellent offerings of cafes, fine dining, bakeries, art galleries, an independent bookstore, artisan boutiques, and the Sunday Farmers’ Market in the town square. Canoeing and kayaking are available only a short drive away, on the Russian River or at Jenner. Armstrong Woods is a shady respite of old-growth redwoods in the nearby town of Guerneville. From there Jenner is just 10 minutes north. where you will see unbeatable views as the Russian River flows into the Pacific.

Two night minimum stay, plus $50. cleaning fee.
