About the property

2 Bedroom 1 Full-bath Cottage (& Optn'l 1 Bedrm Guest House) W/ Patio & Firepit

Located just a bike ride from Sonoma Plaza, this 1930's cottage - TOT Cert # 1190N is tastefully decorated for your enjoyment. Cottage has 2 bedrooms, and has a 4 person maximum occupancy in the main cottage itself (OPTIONALLY up to 2 additional in separate Zen Guest Cottage). Newly renovated home with a gorgeous bathroom that includes a full soaking bathtub and separate walk-in stall shower. Bedrooms include a master bedroom and a guest bedroom, both with new Queen-size Beautyrest beds. Each bedroom includes flat screen TV's. The cottage features an eat-in full kitchen, a cozy living room with a gas fireplace with web-enabled flat screen TV, and an attached dining area. All the furnishings are gorgeous, because it serves as your own private showroom furnished by a local furniture store. Of course, fast WiFi Internet is provided.

In the garage, you'll find a full laundry, and even 2 new bikes (with lock) available for your use.

The yard is fully fenced, and is is very private. There are 2 patios, one with a table & chairs under the namesake Lazy Oak Tree which seats 6 next to a burbling wine-barrel fountain and another patio just behind the house with comfortable seating around a gas firepit which is also available for your use.

- OPTIONAL 1 bedroom guest cottage (sleeps 2 additional people) located 25' from main cottage, which is available for additional charge - great if you have more than 4 people in your party (6 MAX, including cottage + guest house). Sorry - Guest Cottage is NOT available as stand-alone dwelling, only for overflow guests of Lazy Oak Cottage existing reservations, and ONLY with approval & extra rent. Inquire if you have need of more space.

The backyard includes fruit and citrus trees, as well as a vineyard of edible grapes as well as a small vegetable & herb garden for your (seasonal) use. The xeriscape landscape is easy to relax in - especially while reclining in the fun bright green Adirondack chairs near the Agave.

With its central location, Lazy Oak is a great place to use as an exploration base, or simply to get away from it all!

About Mike & Theresa

Mike & Theresa have lived in Sonoma for nearly 10 years. As local business owners, they know this small town and its attractions well, and bring a level of hospitality to the cottage which you'll appreciate!

Mike & Theresa purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Mike & Theresa chose Sonoma

Lazy Oak Cottage will be our full-time home when we retire! Sonoma is a special town; we pinch ourselves that we get to live here, and we feel very fortunate to be able to share the spectacular vistas, people, and wine with our guests!

What makes this cottage unique

Sitting in the shade of the front porch is a wonderful way to while away an afternoon. The shade from the large namesake Oak tree over the property keeps everything about 15 degrees cooler than out in the sun, and sitting there just feels somehow... right! To help enjoy the cool breeze, we've placed a teak glider bench next to the front door to enhance the experience. The travertine patio gives privacy just steps away from both cottages, and around back is a pergola with optional gas firepit and comfy chairs. A couple of chaises as well as other lounging furniture makes the backyard incredibly relaxing. Pick some tomatoes and pinch off some basil from the herb garden drizzle a little olive oil, mix in some slices of asiago cheese and you've got a wonderful, simple Mediterranean tomato salad like Nana used to make!
