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

Nicer in person and super clean

  • 4 of 5

Overall the place is lovely, clean and bright.

Pros: the bed is comfortable, the kitchen is well appointed, the living room is roomy and the outside patio is great. Jacuzzi tub, linens throughout and cleanliness is great. The cottage actually looks better in person than in the pictures. Being in the bedroom upstairs makes you feel like you're in a treehouse (in a good way).

Cons: the shower head is less than 100%. Water pressure is fine but came out at weird angles and all on one side of the shower head. This is an easy fix and was kind of annoying.

The coffeemaker does not work. Either the filters are the wrong size or it just is old and tired. Based on the information provided I figured I could enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning and then wasted 2 batches of expensive beans (that I purchased) on trying to make it work. Made a huge mess on the counter b/c the machine flooded brown water all over the place. Also seems like an easy fix.

Owner's Response: Cindy, I appreciate your review as to future guests. I will definitely check the shower. The coffee maker, however works fine as I brewed some beans and enjoyed a great cup of coffee. I'm pleased overall that you had a great time. Michelle

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.
