Villa Grande cottage description

Vacation or stay at our charming historic guest cottage in Villa Grande called "The Old Goathouse." It is beautifully remodeled and furnished. It is private, has a deck, garden, gourmet kitchen, skylights, gas fireplace, and six person hot tub. We offer wireless DSL and nationwide long distance, and an original art collection. On-site Bodywork is available. We are 2 blocks from the newly aquired Patterson Point Preserve Beach.

The cottage is surrounded by lush vegetation and redwoods and is two blocks from the Russian River. "The Old Goat House" is on the site of the Old Villa Grande Hotel built in early 1900's, now a private residence. Villa Grande is a town full of historic craftsman style homes which makes for great sightseeing.

This is the perfect weekend getaway or week long retreat. The fantastic wine book "Wine Country Dogs" was completed at our lovely cottage.

Ask us also about our rates for longer term stays. We regularly have people come and stay for one month or more! Villa Grande is one of the best secrets of the Russian River area. Come find out why!

We are now accepting rentals for the June and beyond. We love longer term guests and have great monthly rates! We also accept stays of 2 nights or more for the winter months (October-April). We book quickly and have a very loyal repeat clientle. Please contact us for more information.

                  Why the Owner Chose Villa Grande:
                  We fell in love with the Old Villa Grande Hotel property the moment we saw it. It was in terrible condition. We have been lovingly restoring and remodelling it. Our plan is to live in Villa Grande forever. The Old Goathouse was our little vacation getaway which we remodelled for ourselves prior to moving to the area fulltime. It is adorable! We love it and you will too.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  Villa Grande is a town full of historic Craftsman Cottages. We have a local beach which you and your four legged friends can enjoy. This is a lush retreat where you will feel welcome and either have privacy and a quiet retreat with hot tub, or enjoy the local community and beach. We have had people come and write books, proposals, create business, have family gatherings, go winetasting, or spend a season visiting us. We have many return visitors! You are always welcome.
