Adequate Property

  • 3 of 5

We stayed in the Cottage in the Oaks and found the stay to be comfortable and well positioned. The cottage is maybe a 10 minute drive or so to Sonoma square so that's nice and close there; the cottage is actually space above the garage which has been finished off at the owners home. The cottage is in a gated community that is very quiet and very dark at night. The owners were very responsive on initial booking and throughout as needed.

The cottage itself was reasonably comfortable however could use some updating; personally we would have liked to see some window coverings (especially in the bathroom) and perhaps an exhaust fan in the bathroom. The property overlooks the city and has a great view. We didnt use the pool as the weather was a bit cold for that, and we also found the hot tub was locked so likely not included for renters usage which was a bummer. The only thing we didnt care for was that the owners were working on the place while we were trying to relax. We sat near the pool to watch the sunset and the owner was apparently building something or repairing something as there were power saws being run for a few nights, hammers pounding and it sounded like a construction zone while we were sitting near the pool trying to just relax.....I think the owners should avoid doing that stuff when you have people renting there.

I see mostly 5-star reviews and I honestly believe this is people just being nice. Personally I only give a place 5 stars if it went above and beyond in everything. This property is comfortable, the owners were responsive, but it is not a 5-star property at all. I would rate it as an average stay assuming the construction zone was an anomaly; if that's the regular then I'd vote it even less as it was a bit distracting from the beauty of the area.

Owner's Response: Hello Adam We always appreciate reviews. However a three star gives us concern. I find it a little hard to believe that you criticized others for your stay when they clearly gave it the star rating they felt it deserved. As far as the bathroom goes - there is no way anyone that can see in and the nice window does work instead of a fan. But it is something that we can look into. We apologize for the noise during your stay. Most folks are not there between 10-5 p.m. as they are off sightseeing in the wine county. There was some damage to the side of the house that needed a repair job before these 5 days of rain we are now having. We do not advertise the hot tub as it is not part of the rental but private to the homeowners. Sandy

A Cottage In The Woods

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend stay at the cottage. It was so quiet and peaceful day and night. We enjoyed seeing deer and other wildlife in the near by fields as we drove onto the property. The layout of the cottage was perfect. The living room was comfy and had a nice selection of books, magazines and maps. There was a kitchenette that was fully stocked with silverware, plates and cups. Instant hot water worked great for brewing tea in the morning and a coffee pot was available if needed. The bedroom was just right and had an attached bathroom with a basket of travel size shampoos and soaps. It should be noted that the cottage is above a garage. If you have a problem using stairs, you may want to reconsider this cottage. We loved everything about the cottage and the property. It was just far enough out of town to feel like we were in the middle of nowhere but close enough (5 minute drive) to easily drive in for dinner and evening strolls. This is a great home base for wine tasting in Napa and Russian River; both a short 30 minute drive away.

Great cottage, easy drive to town!

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is cozy and had everything we needed. While the cottage is close to the main house, we felt privacy was maintained. Easy drive to towns of Sonoma and Glen Ellen. Property is beautiful as well as the view!

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful accommodations - I came to Napa/Sonoma area to run the Napa to Sonoma Half Marathon and have a girls' weekend with a good friend who is battling cancer. The Cottage was great and had everything we needed. It is just a quick few miles from downtown Sonoma. The owner was very nice. I will recommend the Cottage in the Oaks to others.

Beautiful spot!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay in the hills here surrounded by wildlife (a doe and two fawns were wandering the front yard as we pulled in, little lizards all over and saw probably 20 wild turkeys and 3 shooting stars)! The property is beautiful, the pictures accurate, and the bed in the cottage one of the more comfortable beds I have ever slept in (best. nap. ever.) - only complaints are minor: they don't accept PayPal as payment (but were very accommodating in arranging other payment methods as it was too late to send a check), and there was no full length mirror in the cottage. We were attending a wedding in Sonoma and would have appreciated having one. Thanks again!
