Beautiful place, both inside and outside.

VRBO Bear stayed here

Jun 23, 2015

This Sonoma cottage is the perfect secluded spot for visiting all the area has to offer! A friend joined me, and we had the pleasure of staying in this hide-away at the end of a long, private driveway. The cottage has all the amenities a bear would need, including a bottle of wine waiting to be uncorked upon arrival. The bright kitchen was well-stocked with necessities, including beer, water and ice. The bedroom sleeps two and the sleeper-sofa sleeps two, so each of us had plenty of room to sprawl at night after long days of hunting for honey and wine. The garden patio is gorgeous and begs for guests to sit outside enjoying the cool, dry evenings of northern California. The downtown square in Sonoma has many restaurants, shops, and wine bars. It is only a mile away, which is a quick drive or an easy walk through the quiet neighborhood. The owners, Bennett and Sheila, offer their classic cherry red VW Beetle to drive around. Although we did not drive it, we admired the shiny car each time we entered the driveway. As a springboard for visiting the Sonoma and Napa region, this is a fantastic location to stay. I highly recommend visiting this Sonoma cottage for anyone visiting the wine country!

Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

Great, comfortable place!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the rental. We spent a lot of time on the cute patio. The hosts were great and provided all the amenities for a great stay. The kitchen was well-stocked to make simple meals. The location is a good home base for touring Sonoma vineyards. We hope to stay here again.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two nights with our two teenagers, on our first trip to Sonoma. The owners were responsive, helpful, and provided a great place to stay. The courtyard was our favorite spot to enjoy our winery purchases. It is very centrally located and easy to get to wineries or downtown Sonoma.

Great Sonoma cottage

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at this quaint little cottage only a few miles from Sonoma square. The accommodations were comfortable and owner very nice - offering to help with whatever we needed. We took the VW out one evening and it was very nice to have access to it. We typically prefer homes to hotels due to the privacy and overall more relaxed atmosphere and this cottage held true to those traits.

The property was to die for! It was quiet, relaxing, comfortable, and super cute!

  • 5 of 5

I spent the weekend with my girlfriends and it was absolutely perfect. Sheila and Bennett are the sweetest hosts I have ever met! They make sure that your stay with them is everything you want it to be. They provide guides for the best wine tasting, restaurants. and activities you can do during your stay in Sonoma. This weekend I was getting married and I couldn't of asked for more than a perfect place to spend my last night with my girls and then our first night as husband and wife. The window views are super cute and the home is very clean! Sheila and Bennett went out of their way to surprise me with their really cute red convertible bug at the winery where I was getting married as my send of car. It was so generous and sweet of them. We cannot wait to go back! Hands down, best VRBO we have stayed in! Thank you Sheila and Benett
