Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Michelle and Oso,

We enjoyed our stay very much! From the moment we walked in the door, we felt the love and care that went into the designing the cottage . What a delightful sight to see fresh flowers with a welcome note, a bottle of wine, cheese and crackers, and a bright, cheerful kitchen filled with everything to make us feel right at home! Your attention to detail was exceptional... thanks you so much! I love how fresh and new the cottage feels.. Delightful! And your wine choice... excellent. Thanks again

Lovely, tranquility in the woods

  • 5 of 5

Property was clean and well maintained. It was well-thought out with everything needed for a relaxing stay. We had a BBQ with friends on the deck. Michelle was very welcoming and helpful, asking about what morning drinks should be put out and what wine was enjoyed. Thank you!

Perfect base for exploring Sonoma wine country

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is charming and comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped. Our hostess Michelle provided a welcoming bottle of wine and cheese. She gave helpful advice on local restaurants and shops.

We arrived in the midst of a heat wave and were concerned that the cottage was not air conditioned. It turned out not be a problem at all. Nights are cool. Michelle suggested we open the windows in the evening to let the cool air in, then close them in the morning to keep out the heat. This worked perfectly! Won't be an issue for most, but good for summer visitors to know.

The cottage is well located for easy drives to wineries in Sebastapol, Healdsburg, Dry Creek, Russian River Valley, etc. On our last evening, we grilled steaks on the BBQ and sat out on the deck, enjoying the night air and a glass of wine. A great finish to a memorable stay.

Wine country retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a weekend at Twisted Willow Cottage, which turned out to be the perfect place for us to stay to enjoy a couple relaxing days in wine country. The cottage is about an hour from Napa and 20 minutes from Healdsburg, making it easy to navigate the surrounding area. The cottage itself is beautiful and charming - we enjoyed having a glass of wine on the patio in the private yard and drinking coffee by the fireplace in the morning. The kitchen is well-stocked, and we appreciated the wine, cheese, crackers as well as being able to make some small requests (half and half, splenda, etc) that saved us a trip to the store! Wish we'd had more time to spend here - we do hope to come back!

Spot on

  • 5 of 5

What a great getaway from the city. We felt like we had found Napa 15 years ago. We loved the local feeling we got when we went in town. Our walks down the path were beautiful. Thank you for opening this cottage up to us during our pre-marital counseling!

Twisted Willow Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is light filled with high ceilings and abundant windows and yet warm and cozy at the same time. We had a lovely two day stay, the setting is very private and the wine and cheese were perfect. A very well equipped kitchen with the upstairs being in a tree house. We would definitely go back!
