This stylish and spacious guest house with full kitchen is tucked away on a small county lane in a quiet rural neighborhood just outside of town. The cottage has large picture windows expansive views of the mountains across the valley and is on an acre of charming gardens filled with pathways and flowers.
Inside your private cottage
High vaulted ceilings and the large windows with views create a welcoming open feeling. The cottage is 725 square feet, which is larger than many of the other guest houses available here. It's creatively decorated with an upscale arty vibe, sort of country bohemian meets hipster wine country.
There is a super-comfortable queen size bed and a couch that folds into a full size mattress, fitting 3, possibly 4.
There is a full kitchen with sink and counters, a full size fridge, microwave oven, toaster oven, and everything else you need to cook yourself or bring back food from local restaurants and grocery stores.
There is a brand new 50 inch Smart 4K flat screen TV with lots of free channels. Plus you can login to your Netflix, Hulu, HBO Go, Showtime, CBS All Access and any streaming TV site account.
You’ll be greeted with fresh cut flowers, organic orange juice, a bowl of local organic fruit and some of my fresh baked banana bread.
Almost an Acre of Gardens with Pool and Hot Tub
Outside the french doors, wander the pathway through the garden to the pool area that is surrounded by climbing roses. There is a deck with a view and a large 8-person hot tub that is always on at just the right temperature. Just the perfect thing after a day of wine tasting or exploring the Sonoma coast. The deck also has a fire pit with firewood if you would like to have a fire.
On warm days you are welcome to eat out on the tables in pool area. There are chaise lounges with umbrellas for relaxing in the sun by the pool. The pool area is shared with the main house but there is a hedge between the house and the pool area so it is visually private. I am occasionally in the pool area on the weekends in the summer but I am happy to let my guests enjoy their privacy and keep to themselves. The pool area is large enough that even if I’m out there too, there is still plenty of room for you to have your own space. And I am not out there nearly as much as my guests are.
I respect your privacy and leave you to your own during your stay but I am always available if you need anything at all.
