Property type cottage

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath Cottage With Loft

This architect-designed, newly built cozy cottage on 4-acres in Alexander Valley welcomes you with sweeping views of vineyards and mountains. Clean lines combined with a soothing palette of locally-sourced materials evoke serenity and a sense of spaciousness. Constructed with care and deliberately sized to minimize carbon footprint, this modern

yet rustic cottage is ideal for couples or small families. Sleeps 2-4 people.

The cottage is set well off the road and surrounded by vineyards and farms, walking distance to the center of Geyserville (a small town just 6 miles north of Healdsburg and approximately 75 miles from San Francisco). Geyserville is home to several wineries, tasting rooms, two gourmet restaurants (Diavolo’s and Catelli’s), Francis Ford Coppola’s Sonoma estate, Oliver Ranch Foundation and other points of interest.

While the cottage is delightful for quiet reflection, there are many activities available nearby. Hiking and biking trails abound. The Russian River is within walking distance and Lake Sonoma is located just a few miles away. Of course, wineries of Sonoma and Napa beckon year round.

Cottage Amenities:

• 1 bedroom with queen size bed

• Loft upstairs with day-bed (converts to two twins or queen size bed)

• Professional style, fully equipped kitchen

• Zinc countertops

• Slate bathroom with shower

• Front and back decks

• Wireless is available (note: no TV)

• Washer/Dryer, outdoor grill

• Hammock under apple trees

Special pricing for limited time as landscaping and other work on farm continues

We bought the property with the intention of starting a small farm with olive and fruit trees and planting a small scale vineyard. We purposely designed the cottage to be cozy and serene to provide a respite for our family to enjoy the beauty and bounty of the land. We hope you too will enjoy this sweet home.

Perfect Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at our perfect cottage in Geyserville and contemplated a life living our dream. The cottage was exactly how we desire to live - minimally and elegantly. The architecture of the cottage is thoughtful and expertly crafted. It's light filled and airy with an abundance of windows and clearstory windows showing off the beauty of the surrounding wine country. The kitchen too, while minimal in square footage is a chef's dream with stainless steel appliances, commercial style gas range, zinc counters, professional all-clad style cookware, and simple, elegant flatware and china. Our long stay afforded us several opportunities to enjoy creating wonderful dinners at the cottage, taking full advantage of the Healdsburg farmers market and all the wonderful provisions of Wine Country. We even took advantage of the gas bbq grill in addition to the chef's range. As much as we enjoyed cooking and dining at the cottage, the proximity of the cottage to Geyserville also provided several wonderful dining and wine tasting experiences a short walk away. The village of Geyserville, much like the cottage, is tiny in its offerings, but provides exceptional dining and local wine tasting experiences. We loved the cottage and very much enjoyed Geyserville as well as our proximity throughout the Russian River, Dry Creek, and Alexander Valleys.

Uma was a very gracious host. She was hugely accommodating, with a couple revisions to our dates and always very communicative - both prior to our arrival and during our stay, even with various details throughout the cottage to enhance our stay. We can't thank her enough for her accommodation.

We had a wonderful experience and look forward to visiting our dream (and our memories) as often as possible!

Very relaxing and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights at this very private home and had a great time. The views are great, the bed comfortable, and the home had everything we needed to make our meals or just relax. We really enjoyed all of the birds and butterflies visiting the property and it will be interesting to see the trees and other landscaping when it is complete. Uma couldn't have been more helpful or easier to work with. Thank you and we look forward to returning in the future!

Cozy cottage for a small family

  • 4 of 5

Myself, my husband and our two small children stayed at this cozy retreat for Father's Day weekend. It's a simple, easy choice for young families who like the convenience of being able to walk to town and be within a short driving distance to wineries and downtown Healdsburg. The cottage was very clean and contemporary and we loved the indoor/outdoor feeling of the open floor plan indoors and immediately available outside deck. The kids could run in and out in a safely contained area while we cooked and relaxed. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Wonderful retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect getaway for my husband and me! Great privacy, gorgeous views, and perfectly clean and modern with a homey feel. The sunrises and sunsets from the deck are just breathtaking, a total treat!! Even washing dishes is an easy chore with the view out of the kitchen window!! Working with Uma, the owner was very easy and a pleasant experience!
