Property description

**BOOK A MID-WEEK STAY AUG - SEPT & RECEIVE A $50/night DISCOUNT**
Ditch your car keys and discover Real Wine Country on foot or bicycle from our 1889 Historical Cottage right in the Town Center. A short 5 minute walk will take you right into the Sonoma Plaza where you will find world-class restaurants, numerous tasting rooms, shops, galleries, festivals and so much more! You have arrived at the #1 destination spot for Sonoma County travelers.

Imagine. We are within two blocks to The Girl & The Fig, El Dorado Kitchen, The Sunflower Café, the Sonoma Cyclery, Whole Foods Market, and the Sonoma Market--just to name a few destinations. Your pedestrian paradise will include passing old adobe storefronts, sunlit courtyards, enchanting alleyways, and exploring historic California landmarks. You can even stand on the site of the original (California) Bear Flag raising, at the monument on the northeast corner of the Plaza. Did you know that Sonoma was a former Spanish Mission village and military outpost where the Republic of California was claimed from Mexico?

That’s not all. Our vacation home is exceptionally charming, tastefully decorated, and offers you a genuine Sonoma living experience. Our 1889 renovated Victorian-era Cottage will embrace you with comfort and convenience during your stay. All rooms are bright & colorful – each boasting its own Sonoma contemporary style. Please view our pictures, and you'll agree.

Our reviews speak for themselves about the kind of experience you can expect. We are responsive, caring, diligent, and genuinely care about our guests being 100% satisfied with their stay.

Come explore the whole of Sonoma Valley, the birthplace of California’s wine industry. We offer an ideal base from which to explore not only the Plaza area, but Sonoma Valley, neighboring wine regions (Glen Ellen & Kenwood), the Sonoma Coast, and the S.F. Bay Area at large. We are just a 45 minute drive into San Francisco.

Car: Recommended

Our Victorian-era Cottage is located a quick 2 blocks from the Plaza, the largest historical 'square' in California. Our location just makes your travel needs so much more convenient. Within a block, you'll find Sonoma Market, Whole Foods, a Cyclery & bakery. Walk another block away to indulge at The Girl & the Fig, wine tasting, or any destination on the Square. The Plaza, which is a National Historic Landmark itself, hosts many community festivals, and serves as the town's focal point. With world-class restaurants, shops, wineries, farmer's markets, and parks, the Plaza is THE central tourist attraction of Sonoma.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Being native to the Bay Area (and fellow wine lovers), we have been traveling to Sonoma County for many years, using VRBO & Homeaway, encountering some great experiences. It has been a long process, but we finally were able to purchase our first vacation home on Sonoma Mountain in 2012. Because we fell in love with Sonoma (again), we also wanted a 'city' property close to the Sonoma Plaza. Better yet, one with history, dating back to all that was happening in Sonoma in the late 19th Century. Now, we want to share it with other travelers seeking all that this area has offer, and hope that you will love it too!

Why the Owner Chose Sonoma, CA, USA:
What is not to love about Sonoma, especially right near the Plaza? There are unending things to do and see--wine tasting, eating experiences, historical site-seeing, outdoor adventure and shopping!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Remodeled, Historical 1889 house with the feel of Old-Sonoma, but updated and just adorable. We are a 5 minute walk from the Plaza--no need to drive anywhere! The Plaza has so much to offer--wineries, eateries, Square fun (festivals, events, farmer's markets, etc.).
