Great place in the heart of Northern Sonoma

  • 4 of 5

We really liked this place despite the record temperatures. We are both very familiar with this area as we have been visiting for many years. This was our favorite place. They might want to consider adding an a/c unit if these recent spikes in temperature turn out to be the new normal.

Bay area mom and wine lover

  • 5 of 5

We love First Crush Cottage!! This was my third visit with my family and we will be back again. I love the design and decor. It's so lovely to sit in the backyard looking at the grapes and the garden. It is conveniently located close to the town square and the wineries. I brought my road bike and rode into town for coffee one morning. Its truly a special home. The owner is generous with recommendations so you can just step into wine country living like a local.

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

First Crush Cottage is absolutely beautiful and is well appointed with everything you need for a comfortable stay. It was a very hot weekend, but with all the windows open the house cooled right down. Kimberly was extremely responsive and accommodating when I asked if we could arrive a little easier than planned and she extended us her Lambert Bridge membership where we had the chef's tasting. Overall a great experience. One note - with horses next door there were some flies - just don't make the mistake of opening all the doors as we did!

Great little house in perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

Spent the weekend with another couple here at First Crush cottage.

Wonderful location very close to the Oakville grocery at Lambert Bridge.

The house is on a beautiful, large property with a lovely back patio and garden. Views out over the vineyards are idyllic. The two bedroom, two bath house was very nice inside with a lovely master and great master bathroom. The second bedroom is quite small, but adequate. The kitchen was modern and very well stocked with everything you would need to prepare meals. The complimentary private wine tasting of Bordeaux style wines at Lambert Bridge winery was amazing! Many thanks, Kimberly!!

Perfectly Located for Food & Wine

  • 4 of 5

This was an awesome home base for great food and wine, we were less than 10 minutes from all of our entertainment venues. Kimberly was the perfect manager, checking in on us via text and providing food and wine suggestions in her confirmation email. Completely stocked kitchen and fun patio for eating or tasting our purchased wines. We had two concerns during our stay. When we first arrived the house was hot and we were shocked there was no air conditioning, but during our warm June stay, all that was needed was to open some windows and let the breeze blow through. Perfect sleeping at night with a nice breeze. There must be water quality issues, it smells of rust and there seem to be rust stains on the beautiful white linens, but there is a whole house filtration system, a drinking water filtration and even better there was a nice, cold, Brita filtered pitcher in the refrigerator when we arrived - so both of our concerns were put to rest. We so enjoyed our long weekend stay in this awesome little house!
