Overview

About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

This quaint and private guesthouse at the rear of a large lot in Sonoma's lovely Eastside is a private wooded retreat walking distance to the historic Sonoma Plaza. It is perfect for couples or small families, and we are pet friendly! Only 45 minutes north of San Francisco, historic Sonoma Valley is one of California's oldest towns, as well as the birthplace of the California wine industry. The historic and scenic town plaza, complete with duck ponds, play grounds, and weekly farmer's markets, offers an array of dining and shopping options. The valley is within 10 miles of more than 30 wineries and home to a number of historic sites, including the northernmost of California's famous missions, General Vallejo's home, and Jack London's homestead. Sonoma is thought of as the more 'laid-back' wine country, and its welcoming attitude and world-class amenities make a very special place indeed.

The cozy guesthouse, with a dark wood exterior and light interior, is situated in private wooded setting. It is 120+ yards off the already quiet residential street and is separated and blocked from view of the main house by mature trees and a free standing outbuilding. It has two bedrooms (two queens), plus a very comfy queen sofa bed, one full and one half bath, and is furnished as a 'modern cottage'. There is a full kitchen, a dining room table that could seat six, as well as back deck for outdoor dining. It is pet friendly and has a (low) fenced back yard. There is central heating, window unit A/C, TV with limited cable, WiFi, and an iPod-ready stereo.

Please note that the cottage is located in a quiet residential neighborhood, and we live in another house on the same property. Please respect our neighbors and NO PARTIES. As well, outside noise is to be kept at a minimum after 9.00pm.

The cottage is maxed out at four people.

Refundable damage deposit required. Signed rental contract and the aforementioned damage deposit required to hold dates.

I could not have chosen a more perfect place to spend a month in Sonoma. Peaceful and private yet close enough to not feel at all isolated. I hope to return!

Wonderful stay at the Sonoma Cottage

  • 5 of 5

I love the cottage! This was my second time to stay and I will be back. The cottage is charming in a lovely, historic area of Sonoma. It is comfortable and very private in a garden setting. A perfect walk to the downtown square, a few blocks of easy walking. And you can easily drive to Napa or any wine country site. In addition, all of the East Bay and San Francisco are accessible. The cottage has everything you need for a comfortable and fun visit.

Peace and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was perfect and perfectly peaceful. It is cute, "rustic" and comfortable. I say "rustic" because it looks like a cabin, but is perfectly modern and well-appointed where needed. It is a very efficient space: cozy but spacious enough to not feel crowded. I loved the porches most, in the shaded, late-summer weather.

It is close to town and in a residential-type area, but set back in plenty of trees and shade so that the feel is secluded. It is perfect if you have animals as there is an enclosed yard. I brought my dog and 2 young children and there was a perfect balance of space inside and out. The owners are friendly, approachable and helpful, but also give you space and privacy.

A Wonderful, Relaxing Month

  • 5 of 5

After years of contemplating it, my wife and I finally took the plunge to spend a month working and living away from home and rented this wonderful cottage. The bar for future rentals has now been set very high! The cottage is just the right size, is airy and cozy at the same time, the kitchen is perfectly equipped, everything is clean, and it's set back away from the street so it's very private. The back porch was perfect for evening dinners, and there is even an on-premise washer and dryer. There was even a plum tree - we couldn't eat the ripe plums fast enough!

Additionally, we were an easy walk to Sonoma Square, which we did nearly every day for morning coffee and other activities. And speaking of Sonoma, if you like great food, great wine, beautiful scenery, and friendly people, this town is for you!

We will be back - thank you for a dreamlike month!

My husband and I had the best stay at this charming cottage. We biked to the plaza and to a few wineries nearby. The cottage is very comfortable: clean and has everything you need.

Wonderful wedding weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, adult daughter and I stayed at this cute cottage for three nights while in Sonoma for my niece’s wedding. It was perfect for the 3 of us. Plenty of room, very clean, comfortable beds, a well-appointed kitchen, large deck and surprisingly private. We went on several nice walks around the neighborhood and downtown to the Plaza. After I reserved the cottage, I discovered that this family owns the Gundlach Bundschu Winery and Vineyard, where my niece’s wedding was held. It’s only 2 miles away, and it was a beautiful setting for a wedding. The weekend couldn’t have been more perfect!
