About the Property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2), Vineyard and Mountain Views

Enjoy all that Wine Country has to offer while staying in your own cottage overlooking a private vineyard and the mountains beyond. Separate from the main house, this restored craftsman-style water tower has an almost storybook feel with beautiful exposed beams, light streaming in through the sliding glass doors and picture windows that open up to vast vineyards.

The cottage is located in the famed Buena Vista region on the Eastside of Sonoma and has unbeatable views! You will be within walking distance of California's finest wineries, a mere mile and a half away from Sonoma's historic plaza, and equally close to many beautiful hiking trails. All of this is made even more accessible with the complementary use of matching Schwinn cruisers and helmets!

Drive in through our vineyards and park right next to the cottage. The bedroom is located above the bath and living area giving the house a very cozy loft-style feel. The mattress is very comfortable, the sheets are soft, and we even offer fluffy robes to cuddle up in. The living area is equipped with a small refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker and the entire cottage has wifi access. It also features your own private patio complete with a bistro table and chairs to watch the sunrise with a cup of coffee, the moonrise with a glass of wine, or to just sit outside and enjoy the breathtaking views!

So go visit a winery, enjoy downtown Sonoma, or just sit back and relax on your own quiet patio. We'd love to have you!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: Hi, I'm Lucy and my dad John and I are lucky to have one of the premier vineyard properties east of the Sonoma Plaza, in the countryside but close to town. I live part time here with my dad and part time in San Francisco. I grew up here and know how lucky I am to consider this home and John has been living here in Sonoma for over 40 years and his love for this town has only grown since.

Why the Owner Chose Sonoma, CA, USA:
My family fell in love with the property from the very beginning. John had a vision, as a creative master cabinet maker all his life, for the old craftsman style bungalow that was set to be bulldozed. His vision became a reality and a few years later we won the Award of Excellence from the Sonoma League for Historic Preservation. From there we continued to restore the old barn sight and vineyard cottage. Today we enjoy our 8.5 acres and the magic of the land continues to amaze us.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
John's passion is old cars, and right next door to the cottage is a barn full of antique cars and when John is home he loves to take our guests on a tour. We also have matching his and her Schwinn bikes and helmets for our guests to use as it is a short ride to downtown or just enjoy riding to the different wineries close by. You can play your iPod or iPhone on a small portable Altec Lansing docking station and there's a small television. We also bottle our own wine and at certain times of the year you might be able to do some barrel tasting!
