Overview

About the property

Cottage, Studio + Other (See Description),(Sleeps 2)

Perfectly located, you will find our 'Little Bird Cottage just the ideal place to stay. You can easily access major highways and roads to see all of Sonoma county and more,yet we are tucked away down a quiet private road. How perfect! and we HAVE AIR CONDITIONING:)

We are excited to welcome you to our owner built and designed ground level studio located on our acre and half property here in Sebastopol. We are near, but you won't even know we are there:)

We call it 'Little Bird Cottage', because we have an abundant number of Finch and Chickadees everywhere .The brand new complete kitchen has everything you need to prepare your own meals/or special diets for longer stays if you like, but Sebastopol has a wonderful variety restaurants for you to choose from.

A beautiful hand-crafted 'Potterybarn' like bed, covered with high-end quality linens, pillows, and throws await you after a long day of traveling, sight seeing or visiting friends and family.

Out front of the studio you will find a full porch for enjoying that evening glass of vino you bought while wine tasting, or want to sun yourself a bit?, then relax in the Adirondeck chairs under the vintage Granvenstein apple tree.

From June through Sept. there is berry season;raspberries or boysenberries might show up on the porch to add to your morning breakfast ,yogurt or ice cream, and there is a lemon tree just outside your door.

It's a peaceful neighborhood, beautiful surroundings and close to everything you might want to see in the area. We can't wait to show you this cozy little spot.

Future plans: " SaraPinot Vineyards" is coming!! look for our new hobby vineyard that Ken and our sweet lab "Sara" are putting in this spring 2016.

We are a hardworking family that enjoy the outdoors, small gardening projects, making and building things ourselves. We feel fortunate to be able to share this beautiful county with you.

Why Kathy or Ken chose Sonoma County

We have lived in Sebastopol for 18 years.

Raised our children here and wanted some property for them to roam around on, and Ken wanted to live near the coast for Salmon fishing.

What makes this cottage unique

Our property is very convenient to neighboring towns, the coast, the Redwoods, and beautiful vineyards.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We spent most of January here, and so glad we did. Little Bird Cottage was pleasing and homey, and just immaculate when we got here. Nice touches, fresh linens delivered weekly in a basket on the porch, with a surprise of wine, or sparkling water. The birds, quail and deer were also a bonus feature for us. We hope to pass this way again. Beautiful state and area you have here Kathy and Ken!

My husband and I celebrated our 41st wedding anniversary at Little Bird Cottage and found it to be delightful in every way! We were looking for a peaceful, charming cottage that was far enough away from noisy streets to be restful yet near enough to drive and explore quaint little towns, the beautiful north coast and of course the wine country! Little Bird Cottage was the perfect fit❤️

And where do I begin with Ken and Kathy? They should get an award for the most hospitable hosts ever!!! Everything from their warm welcome to surprise goodies and tips on area restaurants and sights to see made us feel right at home. They definitely blessed us with their attention to detail and thoughtfulness❤️

Hope to return again someday...... Gary and Pam~ Modesto CA

Wow, what an INREDIBLE GEM in the HEART OF BEAUTIFUL SONOMA COUNTY

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much to Kathy and Ken for a lovely, warm, quiet stay at their Little Bird Cottage. The details (coffee in the morning was fun), lots of light & fresh air, bed cozy & comfortable, little birds flying around, and sound of the pond is so much fun. Loved the gas fireplace. All that a couple would need to rejuvenate and explore Sonoma County and the Coast. Honestly, we have stayed at a lot of AirBnB rentals and this one is one of the BEST. Thank you for taking such good are of us. Cheers, Shailee & Dermot

Anniversary Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I'm late with my review, but I dream of Little Bird Cottage all the time. My husband and I visited Sebastopol in October 2016 for five year anniversary. I can't say enough about how hospitable Ken and Kathy were. They added special details to our trip that made it extra special and even fielded a request from my mom to add a bottle of champagne and a sweet treat. We visited some local wineries, Santa Rosa for Russian River Brewing and enjoyed amazing food. Do yourself a favor, stay for longer than 3 days. It was not enough time at this amazing cottage and community. AND...eat at Gypsy Cafe. Delicious.

Owner's Response: "Still dreaming of our little cottage", put a smile on our faces and we were very touched by your recollection of your 5th Anniversary here at the cottage. It was a pleasure helping your family sneak in some special treats to surprise you. It helps so much to know you felt important to us. We hope one day you find your way back-please, let us know, love to have you, and thank you again for the details and sharing of the places you visited while here.

Delightful Country Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The warm glow of the Little Bird Cottage was a welcome sight upon our arrival in Sebastopol that evening. Thoughtful personal touches made it all the more special, with fresh cut flowers, a bottle of wine and chocolaty treats awaiting us. Attention to detail exceeded expectations, as the decor and bedding were beautiful, and the towels extra soft and fluffy! We had everything needed to make breakfast in the cozy, efficient kitchen and then off to the day's activities. The cottage was an ideal base, close to our daughter at SSU and the concert we attended on campus at the Green Music Center. We were 5 minutes from coffee at the Village Bakery in The Barlow in downtown Sebastopol, a 20 minute drive to tasty tapas at Bravas in Healdsburg, a leisurely jaunt to a meditation workshop in Penngrove and an easy commute to a fundraiser then dinner at the Wild Goat Bistro in Petaluma. Kathy and Ken Eide were very accommodating and couldn't have been nicer, making the reservation process a breeze. Staying at the Little Bird Cottage was a delightful home away from home and one that we will definitely recommend to family and friends.

But you must be one of those super moms:) We are so glad you felt the cottage met all your needs, and that you felt well taken care of-that's out goal-please come again, love to have you and take care of those daughters:))

Cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! The cottage is right on Ken & Kathy's property, but feels very secluded and private. The cottage has everything you could need and is very well maintained. We enjoyed the full kitchen and made breakfast there every morning. Sebastapol is a very cute little town and is conveniently located ~30 minutes from anywhere in wine country you want to go ... also close to the coast! We enjoyed many activities during our 4 day stay (wine tasting, dinners out, bike riding, canoe trip, Armstrong Redwood Forest, trip to the coast), but it was so nice to come "home" to the cottage. I would definitely recommend staying here! We will definitely stay here again on our next trip. :)

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your generous and detailed review. We always appreciate our guests taking the time to jot down what they liked and where they went-seems you two covered ground:)) That just means you HAVE to come back to "the nest" ;0 and do all the things there are still left to do in the area, and or just relax??? Looking forward to seeing you again.
