Property description

Romantic Retreat in Wine Country near the Russian River and Coast

Lavender Cottage is the guest house at Sunrise Ridge an extraordinary estate of lush organic gardens and lavender fields. Please see our website for pictures and details of this incredible property. It is in Sonoma County’s Russian River Wine Country adjacent to a 100 acre vineyard and minutes from the Sonoma Coast. The cottage offers comfort and privacy with sweeping views of vineyards, redwood forests and Mt. St. Helena. We are located in the coastal hills a few miles from the hamlet of Occidental just over sixty miles north of San Francisco. It is centrally located just minutes from the spectacular Sonoma Coast, the Russian River recreational area and the world renowned Osmosis Spa. Just 10 miles west of Santa Rosa the area offers redwood forests, the Sonoma Coast and world class restaurants all in the heart of Sonoma Wine Country.

Come stay in our newly built spacious (830 sf) one bedroom, one bath house. Built of nontoxic and sustainable materials it is ideally suited for chemically sensitive individuals. It is located in the orchard and has panoramic views of west Sonoma County from every window. Watch the sun rise over Mount Saint Helen from the great room or the window seat in the bedroom. Sip a glass of wine on the private terrace while watching the reflected light of sunset on the rolling hills dotted with vineyards and redwoods. Soak in the hot tub on the terrace after a day of hiking or picnicking on the spectacular Sonoma Coast.

The retreat is a turn-key accommodation with a queen-size bed and queen sleeper sofa. Your stay includes complimentary local wine. Pick organic vegetables in the garden and apples, black berries and figs in season. We can arrange a massage in the cottage or on the terrace, a train ride and dinner while you cruise through wine country or a private tour of the neighboring vineyards. Of course you can just relax and read a book or hike or bike on local trails in this beautiful country setting.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: My husband and I moved to Sonoma County in 2003 and build our house and guest house on this 7 acre estate in the Russian River wine appellation of Sonoma Wine Country. We are retired professors and environmental scientist who were looking for up scale country living with an optimal climate. Since then we have designed developed acres of bio dynamic gardens based upon ecologically sustainable practices of permaculture. We have found a piece of heaven and look forward to sharing it with you.

Why the Owner Chose Sebastopol:
West Sonoma County offers everything that you would want in an up scale and relaxing vacation: excellent wine tasting with hundreds of wineries to chose from, the Russian River which offers excellent swimming, kayaking and birding and the spectacular Sonoma Coast. We have hiking, biking, birding and world class restaurants, locally grown organic food and artisan cheeses. You get all of this in a year round mild climate, redwoods and wonderful hamlets for shopping and sightseeing.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Sunrise Ridge Gardens which sits high upon an east facing ridge in west Sonoma County has sweeping views of vineyards and redwood forests that lead the eye across the Sonoma Plain. It is a seven acre garden sanctuary minutes from wineries, the coast and the Russian River. Pick organic vegetables in the garden and apples, black berries and figs in season. We can arrange a massage in the cottage or on the terrace, or a private tour of the neighboring vineyards. Of course you can just relax and read a book or hike or bike on local trails in this beautiful country setting.
