Property description

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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

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 Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
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.'
