About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bath with Vineyard Views, Bocce Ball

Due to the devastating fires here in Sonoma County, we will not be hosting guests in Sonoma County for 2018 but instead will be providing housing for friends who have lost their home. After three wonderful years hosting guests from around the world, we are taking a short break and plan to be back up and running in 2019! Please still plan on coming to our beautiful county and enjoying the beauty that the fires can never take away.

Springtime in Sonoma County is beautiful with the grapevines leafing out and the mustard fields blooming.

Nestled in the Russian River Valley is where you will find Woolsey Road Cottage. Our beautifully designed 840 sf cottage is located on our 7 acre family owned property that is within 10 minutes to Santa Rosa, 15 minutes to the Russian River, 15 minutes to Healdsburg, 45 minutes to the Napa Valley and 1 hr. to San Francisco. Our cottage is perfect for two couples, a friend's getaway weekend or a small family.

For those of you coming to the area to cycle, participate in our year round festivals and events or just to relax, our cottage is perfectly located and comfortably furnished with a full kitchen, bathroom and comfortable king and queen beds. Inside you will find all the necessities of modern life including WiFi, cable television and even a washer and dryer. Outside you have a beautiful covered deck accessible from the living room and master bedroom which overlooks a fully fenced backyard furnished with a BBQ, outdoor eating area, outdoor living room on the deck, hot tub, bocce ball court and lots of privacy.

In the summer and fall months our orchard and garden overflow with fruit and vegetables which we enjoy sharing with our guests. We also have a flock of happy hens (our girls) that love to provide you with fresh eggs (when available).

This place is unbelievable! Perfect location for going from one point to another, quiet in the evenings! Pictures don't do it justice! The fresh eggs and bottle of wine left for us when we arrived were icing on the cake. We are already discussing another stay at this home! Thank you!!!

Beautiful Cottage in Wine Country

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was perfect for our honeymoon! It was far enough away from the highway that it has a country feel, but still 2 miles away from anything that we needed. It was easy to take the mountain roads or the highway (our choice) to get to any of our wine tastings and restaurant reservations. We visited Sonoma Plaza, Healdsburg Square, and Napa on the trip and this cottage was easily in driving distance to all of them. The hot tub made a perfect night time relaxing time while enjoying the many stars in the sky. The cottage was well equipped and made for a perfect setting for the times we wanted to cook and enjoy the outdoor eating area on the porch. I would and have already recommended this cottage to anyone visiting.
