Location Perfect for many day trips.

  • 4 of 5

Great quiet location and just what we were looking for in a centrally located wine country stay. As a home base we were able to visit many area destinations to enjoy during the day and return home to a clean, comfortable place!

Great stay in spite of the fires

  • 5 of 5

We drove into Graton on Monday after the fires started. We called Julia and she allowed us to check in early so we could get off the road. The Studio was comfortable and cozy for the two of us. The people we met during this tough time were upbeat and resilient. We will definitely return to the area and The Studio when the area recovers.

Adorable accommodations with excellent service!

  • 5 of 5

If we could rate higher than 5 stars, we would. The hosts did an incredible job making us feel welcome with wine in the fridge, chocolates, and a fruit bowl. We also enjoyed French press coffee! The AC kept the place perfectly cool and the studio itself was adorable. Julia also did an amazing job stocking the place with all the necessities and extras just in case. When we left, I left a ring at the studio and Julia immediately contacted us and got the ring in the mail the very next day. It was so wonderful of her to go out of her way. We HIGHLY recommend this adorable cottage in a peaceful, quiet setting. Look no further!!

Very good

  • 5 of 5

This was for an employee who was in Sonoma for a week. He indicated that it was outstanding and the winery where he was working asked for the location and contact info for future guests. It seems to be an excellent spot in the heart of the Russian River Valley wine country.

Cute cottage

  • 4 of 5

This is a cute little cottage and very very reasonably priced. Well stocked kitchen and very clean. We were, unfortunately, unable to get to sleep during the night and left after one day although the reservation was for two nights (We live two hours away so it wasn't a terrible inconvenience). The cottage is close to a road that received nonstop nighttime traffic-- a real surprise as it is a small rural road.. Heavier sleepers might not find this a problem, but we live in a rural area far from a road and are not used to cars whizzing by at night. The issue could be addressed with a "white noise" appliance available on a lot of websites which I would suggest be on a bedside table. Fresh fruit and wine left for your arrival is a lovely touch in this venue.

Owner's Response: So sorry about the road noise It is Harvest time and all the trucks full grapes for crush are back and forth on the road this time of year for about 2 weeks I will get one of those little white noise boxes for harvest season I didn't realize that this could be a problem No one has mention it in the 3years we have been doing VRBO I really appreciate you letting me know Thank you for choosing to stay at The Studio, Julia
