SONOMA CREEK COTTAGE 2 Bedroom Creekside House W Private Pool

Bedrooms 2
Space 800 sq. ft.
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Sonoma Creek Cottage is located five minutes drive in between the wine country towns of Glen Ellen and Kenwood, and 20 minutes drive thru vineyards to Sonoma's square.

This gated, very private property is situated along one acre (500 feet) of Sonoma Creek where you can hear the year round sounds of the flowing water.

Abundant wildlife is drawn to the water’s edge. There is easy creek access that allows you to explore, or you can sunbathe next to your private solar heated pool.

We have a new 6 person spa/hot tub attached to the deck, overlooking the creek, and an outdoor hot shower with waterfall and body jets.

Beautiful gardens wind through the expansive property where you can picnic in our field or on the lawns. We plant hundreds of daffodils each year that bloom from early February to mid March. Hundreds of tulips start blooming in early March until the end of mid April and the roses, irises and wisteria start to bloom in April.

The comfortably decorated living room has a gas fireplace, and the open dining area and kitchen is surrounded by french doors with retractable screens that open onto the spacious wrap around deck with vistas of the creek, surrounding woods and hills. There are ceiling fans in every room for those who do not want to use the central air conditioning.

There is a gas barbecue on the deck and ample outdoor seating for family gatherings. For those who do not want to cook, the cottage is just five minutes drive to great breakfast places and world-class restaurants.

The master bedroom has a queen size bed, while the second bedroom has a full size bed. The sofa in the living room converts into a double bed. The bathroom has a marble sink and the tub & shower overlooks the creek and woods.

Sonoma Creek Cottage is perfect for a romantic get-away for one or two couples traveling together, or a small family with pool safe children over the age of 12.

The cottage is not child safe. There are nice furnishings, exposed plugs and outlets, cleaning chemicals that are not locked away, and a stream, pool and hot tub that are a drowning risk. We do not rent to families with children older than 6 months and younger than 8 years old. If you have pool safe children older than that, you will be asked to sign a release form affirming that no children in that age range will be on the property. We do not allow pets or smoking.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We hot-tubed, swam, and sat under the stars with the creek bubbling away and the frogs chorusing. The deer family across the stream seemed to love this place too. Thanks for sharing your lovely home.

Adore this lovely cottage!

  • 5 of 5

I have had the pleasure of staying now twice at the wonderful Sonoma Creek Cottage, and truly feel so lucky to have done so. The spot is supremely peaceful and private, with a pool and hot tub adjacent to the babbling creek. There are several outside areas to sit with loved ones and relax. The beds are supremely comfortable. The fireplace in the living room is so inviting. I have been in summer and winter, and each experience was equally splendid. Glen Ellen is an endearing little town, with Sonoma Square just a short drive away. Jack London Park is stunning and well worth a visit. I will be back!

Excellent weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Beautiful Sonoma Creek Cottage this past weekend to attend a wedding close by. We were very happy to see the pictures were accurate, it looks even more Beautiful in person. It was so relaxing and very private! We also enjoyed a delicious dinner at Glen Ellen Inn. The wifi worked great, however, we couldn't get cell service in the house. We would definitely recommend this house to our friends and family!

Thank you Breana at Sonoma Valley Escapes!

Owner's Response: Sonoma Creek cottage is very private. From most areas on the property you can only see the creek, the woods, Sonoma mountain on the horizon, or the vineyard across the street. The cottage does have poor cell reception with Verizon, ATT reception fine.

A dream come true!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 stayed at Sonoma Creek Cottage over Mother's Day weekend!

I could not have asked for a more perfect property and home!

The home is equipped with everything you need!

The pool is lovely! The hot tub and outdoor shower are amazing! The deck overlooking the creek was magical!

Just beyond the wild flowers you can see the creek and hear its lovely babbling.

My 4 and 8 year olds loved taking the staircase down to the creek with my husband to take a closer look and try their hand at skipping rocks. I loved sitting under the shade of the umbrella with a cocktail watching them laugh.

This property is a super convenient 5 minutes to either Glen Ellen or Kenwood!

This property felt super secluded and yet is so close to a fabulous market, tasting rooms, restaurants, and wineries.

We were all so sad to leave and hope to stay again as soon as humanly possible!!!

Great Space!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Sonoma Creek Cottage vacation rental! Great spot in the Sonoma Valley Wine Country--in a little town called Glen Ellen. The property was private, yet just minutes to the downtown area with tasting rooms and restaurants. The warm pool and creek side setting were very relaxing. Mahalo Sonoma Valley Escapes!

Peace and Privacy

  • 5 of 5

We rented the cottage last August for about a week. Very nicely appointed with everything you could need. We cooked many meals there and wanted for nothing when we needed a spice or some other random item we hadn't brought along. The property is behind a gate, which lends to the peace and quiet of the place. We sat on the deck in the mornings to have coffee and again in the afternoons for a glass of wine. the cottage was air conditioned which helped during the warmer afternoons. There were lots of windows allowing for natural light. Very pretty.

The property has a pool, which was great for the entire family. The pool was not heated so it took some getting used to for the adults but the kids could have cared less. There were a lot of bees while we were there as well so if you have someone with an aversion to them, this could present a challenge.

Lastly, the property is minutes from Glen Ellen and it's wonderful market, as well as many wonderful wineries in the area.

Go and enjoy!

Owner's Response: The property is more beautiful than ever now with expanded gardens including an organic vegetable garden of tomatoes and strawberries! The bees are gone and the pool now has a solar heater. If desired, you can also order additional gas heat.
