Cottage Overlooking the Carneros Vineyards

Bedrooms 1
Space 900 sq. ft.
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

1 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, Sleeps 2 (TOT#408)

The Cottage sits on a knoll, on 5 acres of land, overlooking the eastern hillsides and the vineyards of the Carneros wine region. The Cottage is an excellent stay for a couple to celebrate an anniversary, spend a honeymoon or just get away. (TOT#408)

Major wineries are within a 5 to 10 minute drive. (Viansa, Cline, Gundlach Bundschu, Buena Vista, Sebastiani, Ravenswood just to name a few.)

The deck off the back of the cottage offers complete privacy and a wonderful place to enjoy morning coffee with the rising eastern sun, relax with afternoon tea, or celebrate the day with evening wine and cheese. The views are marvelous over the top of the oaks and vineyards. On cool evenings relax by the fire and enjoy music, snuggle up, view a movie or sit back with a good book.

Two Morgan horses graze in our pastures. See them on our website

The area is safe and quiet for evening or morning walks. Walk a mile or take on four.

Cottage Overlooking the Carneros Vineyards

Absolutely perfect! Can't wait to go back.

  • 5 of 5

There are no words to describe how perfect this cottage is. Location is great: you are ~4 miles from downtown Sonoma and split perfectly in between the Carneros region. Very close to amazing wineries in Sonoma and Napa. Bob and Wendy are amazing hosts that go above and beyond to make sure you enjoy your stay. My favorite part of the entire trip was sitting on the deck at night (and enjoying the hot tub) watching the sunset. I cannot wait to come back!

Lovely stay!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Windhaven, half of it in the cottage, half in the studio. Bob and Wendy were delightful hosts. Their property is beautiful with lovely gardens and a short drive to the square. We loved the peace and quiet! Both properties were clean and comfortable. We particularly loved the cottage...smaller, but a great deck with a wonderful view. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit!

Perfect Getaway Destination

  • 5 of 5

My first VRBO experience was perfection, thanks to Bob & Wendy and their lovely cottage. My fiancé and I decided to plan a short weekend getaway trip to Sonoma to relax and enjoy the scenery. When we arrived, Bob greeted us and oriented us to the cottage. When he discovered that we planned to do some biking during our stay, he let us borrow their bikes and provided us with a map of the area. His recommendations for additional activities and dining were also much appreciated. While we loved exploring downtown and biking to wineries, we also enjoyed staying in one evening to eat on the balcony overlooking beautiful vineyards and relaxing in the hot tub. I'm so glad that we've discovered this gem, and we will surely be back to visit again!

Quality VRBO

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this VRBO for an impromptu getaway to Sonoma.

Before driving up the long driveway, you're greeted by two horses in a small field to your right. As you climb the driveway you're greeted with views of a quaint cottage garden overlooking the Carneros vineyards. Bob and Wendy were such a pleasure from booking to checkout. The hot tub on the private porch overlooking the vineyards was the perfect ending to our anniversary trip. Wish we had time to borrow the bikes and cruise around the neighborhoods.

Owner's Response: To our New Orleans guests, Thank you!. We truly appreciate your comments. We loved meeting you. The pleasure is definitely ours having you as our guests. We cannot tell you how much we appreciate your leaving the cottage in excellent condition. You make our job easy. Next time you come out, give yourselves more time to cruise around on the bicycles, and take advantage of more of the events that are always taking place around Sonoma Valley. All the best, Wendy and Bob

Great setting for a quiet Sonoma getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Windaven Cottage. The property is a few miles away from the plaza so you get a peaceful and tranquil setting overlooking the hills. Great touches are the 2 person hot tub in the deck, gas fireplace and complimentary bottle of wine. There's also a pretty good kitchenette although we didn't use it. Bob and Wendy's communication prior to our stay was top notch and their recommendations for local spots was also very helpful. Would definitely stay here again.
