About Rose Brightman

Living on both coasts and growing up back east we hope your family enjoys our home away from home as much as we do! We have furnished Williams Creekside Cottage with a plethoria of amenities that we enjoy ourselves and look forward to sharing them with you. We hope your stay is wonderful and that you discover what we have about this exciting place in the middle of Sonoma, California Wine Country.

Rose Brightman purchased this house in 2010

Why Rose Brightman chose Sonoma County

We absolutely love the 'Wine Country.' Our family is from back East Coast but had our first taste of the Valley in the early 90's. Glen Ellen is a special place in it's own right. We always look forward to a visit to one of our favorite restaurants within walking distance of the house or a run or walk through Jack London State Park. Plus, we are minutes from one of Sonoma's top wineries or tasting rooms and less than a half hour to Napa. Oh, and then there's the famous Sonoma Plaza, less than twelve minutes away with more great restaurants, art galleries, shopping and fun for everyone-including the kids!

What makes this house unique

Williams Creekside Cottage is such a relaxing place for a weekend or extended stay. We always look forward to relaxing on the deck with a great bottle of wine with family and friends. The best part is probably the property itself and serenity of the little creek that runs though the yard. Enjoy our gourmet kitchen stocked with everything you could possibly need to dine outside by our cooking station complete with two decks, spa, fountain and fire pit. Our fire pit has a propane tank. There's an honor code amongst guests for replacing the tank with a new one. If you have been enjoying the fire pit and find that the tank is low, a replacement tank can be purchased at the Glen Ellen Village Market or Glen Ellen Grocery both within walking distance of the property.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Just wanted to let you what a WONDERFUL time we had at your Cottage. Pictures absolutely didn't do it justice, the home is beautiful! Thank you for your hospitality, we will absolutely contact you for our next trip out to Sonoma Valley.

Nice and relaxing house

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, spacious house in a quiet neighborhood in Glen Ellen. The house is well-equipped and has everything you need. We also loved the outdoor areas with a nice barbeque-area. Rose (the owner) was also very helpful with everything. Highly recommend it!

Gem in Sonoma County

  • 5 of 5

Situated in a quiet neighborhood, the spacious 3 bedroom Williams Creekside Cottage offers deluxe accommodations. The golf lovers were impressed with the AV system, particularly the large screen in the living room which seemed to make you part of the tournament. The chef in our group appreciated the well equipped kitchen including a Keurig coffee maker. Amenities include a hot tub on one deck and a dining area and barbecue on another - very pleasant place to decompress after a day of wine tasting. The master bath includes a shower and the second bathroom has a tub and the laundry facilities. The house is within walking distance of the great restaurants and food markets in Glen Ellen. Trips to the local wineries were enhanced by our ability to bring food along in the provided picnic basket. Will definitely stay here again next time we are in the area.

Lovely cottage in a hidden gem of a town in the Sonoma Valley

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the quaint Williams Creekside cottage. The house is so comfortable and homely. So many quite places outside around the house to sit in the sun, read a book and listen to the water from the water fountain. Rose and family were very responsive and helpful through out the booking process and during our stay. Would definitely book again!

Never wanted to leave!

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this home over Thanksgiving weekend and we never wanted to leave!The coziest home with plenty of space was extremely well appointed and comfortable. Surrounding the home is lush natural landscaping and charming yard with a little wooden bridge and stream, an outdoor hot tub which we didn't use, outdoor kitchen and BBQ as well as a gas fire pit to sit around.

My favorite part of the home was the well stocked kitchen with high end appliances (6 burner gas Thermadoor range, Viking fridge) multiple ovens and a large sit around stone counter with stools and wall mounted TV made sitting around eating or having coffee such a wonderful experience. We cooked an entire Thanksgiving feast and had everything we could have needed and more.

I have rented homes in the past but never have I ever felt so at home. The beds were all comfortable and the living room with push button gas fireplace made watching TV or sitting at the dining room table incredibly lovely. This home is completely stocked with everything you need and is a short walk or 2 minute drive to an awesome grocery store and several restaurants (The Fig Restaurant was great!), and from here it is a scenic drive to St Helena, or any of the beautiful Napa wine country towns and wineries to the north or Sonoma just down the road to the south. About 1 hour to SFO airport.

Rose the owner was extremely professional and easy to work with and has great care for details. We enjoyed everything about this home and only concern is it not being available the next time we visit the area!

FANTASTIC SONOMA WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I love Sonoma but usually stay in a 5-star hotel or similar. This home was an absolute pleasure to stay in and we loved all of its amenities. From the gourmet kitchen to luxurious bedding and Sleep Number beds to the beautiful yard and hot tub we had more than enough to do. After some wine tastings we were even able to come back to the house and enjoy watching our hometown Red Sox on TV since this place comes with MLB Extra Innings free of charge. My husband was in his glory.

The property manager Rose was amazing to work with and did everything she promised when we booked and more. She even made recommendations to restaurants in the area and local tasting rooms. We will definitely be back!
