Windhaven 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.

Remember to check with us even if the calendar is full. Cancellations occur or have us put you on a waiting list.

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!

Great cottage just outside of Sonoma

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 5 nights and the location was excellent (3 miles from Sonoma). The deck looks out at the hills with beautiful backdrops of vineyards. The house is smaller but laid out well. If you were going to stay longer than a week the only issue would be food storage as there isn't much cupboard space available. All of the necessities are there otherwise and there is a gate for privacy. The owner's (Wendy and Bob) live at the house next to the cottage and are always available for questions about what to do and where. We would definately stay there again.
