Overview

About the property

Cozy cottage in the country with full kitchen, full bath, 1 queen bed

Sonoma County Transient Occupancy Permit #1503N

Parkside Cottage is a free-standing cabin located on a dead-end country lane, surrounded by nature yet only minutes from downtown Santa Rosa. Enjoy morning coffee on your private outdoor seating area, listening to the sound of songbirds and nearby Santa Rosa Creek. Walk or bike directly into Spring Lake Park and Annadel State Parks, Sonoma County's premier outdoor recreation spots. We are located at the gateway to Sonoma Valley, the famous Valley of the Moon, home to dozens of world-class wineries. Within a five-mile radius you can visit the tasting rooms of Ledson, St. Francis, Chateau St. Jean, and Kunde Estate, among others. At the end of a busy day of sight-seeing, relax in the hammock, or have a BBQ on the patio.

The cottage is small but arranged with a traveler's needs in mind. You will find counter space in the bathroom for your toiletries, a gadget recharging area, places to set down your suitcases and hang up your clothes.

The kitchen comes stocked with coffee, a selection of teas, hot chocolate, creamer, sweeteners, and condiments for preparing meals such as cooking oil, butter and spices, as well as a few food items for last minute meals like instant soup, instant oatmeal, and pasta. When in season, we provide fresh eggs from our chickens and produce from the garden. Kitchen includes a 2-burner gas stove, mini-fridge, microwave, coffee maker, toaster dishes and utensils.

The bed is a queen-size with memory foam mattress and 100% cotton sheets. If you are traveling with a child under 12, we can provide a foam pad for the floor and bedding for no additional cost. Sorry, but the cottage cannot accommodate more than two adults and one child.

Other amenities include:

• The full private bathroom is provided with soap, shampoo, conditioner, plenty of towels and a hairdryer.

• Iron and ironing board.

• WiFi access.

• Guidebooks and maps to local attractions, and menus to nearby restaurants.

• TV with DVD player and a selection of DVDs (no cable network).

•Air conditioning

•Covered parking

During your stay we will completely respect your privacy, but we are close by in the adjacent house if you have questions or need anything.

No smoking allowed on the property. Two night minimum. Three night minimum on major holiday weekends including 4th of July, Memorial Day and Labor Day.

We accept bookings of no longer than 15 nights.

About The Owner

Robin and Sim are lifelong artists, avid gardeners, and outdoor enthusiasts. In 2012 they retired from nearly 20 years of owning a retail art supply store in Santa Rosa. In addition to Parkside Cottage, they now own an art gallery in Santa Rosa, Chroma Gallery at 312 South A Street, Santa Rosa. http://chromagallery.net/

Sim teaches art classes and workshops at the gallery, and both enjoy working in their extensive organic garden, or hiking, biking & kayaking in nearby Spring Lake and Annadel Parks.

Sim is a native of Chicago, but after living in Sonoma County since the '70's he qualifies as a native. Robin is a native Californian hailing from the Monterey Peninsula, and has also lived in Sonoma County since the '70's.

Since 1994, they have been the careful stewards of their charming 1 acre property and are delighted to share it with visitors.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 1994

What makes this cabin unique

The location of our property lets us enjoy a natural setting while being close to town, which cuts down on the time spent driving. At home, with the sounds of the creek, the birds, and the closeness of the park, we always feel 'away from it all.'

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was exactly what we wanted. The property is close to amenities, like a Safeway, and a great restaurant, Su Casa, where we had breakfast every day. The huge park across the street was perfect for a morning run before heading out to taste wine. The grounds were quiet and peaceful, with water flowing in a year-round creek just steps from the cottage. Robin and Simmon were gracious hosts, they provided everything we needed. Simmon stopped by to say hello when I was sipping my coffee in the AM, otherwise we were left to enjoy our stay. We are already planning our next trip and hope the cabin is available. Thank you for a great stay, you are living my dream!

perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was the most wonderful little cottage for a nice getaway. The owners of the property were super friendly, left the lights on for us at night, and provided nice touches like coffee and creamer in the fridge for us. All of the amenities needed for wine country were included like a wine opener and glasses. Perfect location for visiting wine country. Will definitely be back!

Cozy, cute cottage in Santa Rosa

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was the perfect wine country retreat! A very relaxing place to retire too in the evening after spending the days touring around the area! The cottage is super clean and cozy and quiet! Truly an oasis in the middle of the busyness of wine country! Would stay here again and recommend to others visiting the area!

Peace in town

  • 5 of 5

The Parkside Cottage experience was outstanding. Particularly appreciated was the sound of water & birdcalls without traffic or other urban noise, yet right in town!. Cleanliness, friendliness while respectful of privacy by the owner, and kitchen provisions was very good!
