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.

Great cottage

  • 5 of 5

Nice, clean, exactly as advertised. We really appreciated the little touches, like the chilled wine, fresh fruit and coffee. Note that the coffee maker is a French press so if you're not familiar with these you might read up on them before you go. The portable A/C was a lifesaver because it did get pretty hot during the day while we were there. Great location if you're exploring that part of the wine country (Russian River Valley or the coast), but somewhat of a pain to get to the Napa side if that is your intention. The cottage is within walking distance of the town of Graton, which has some restaurants, a bar, and winery/wine tastings but be extra careful for the first 1/4 mile or so until the road opens up with a shoulder.

Simple, clean, exactly as pictured

  • 5 of 5

This place is a bit outside of Sebastopol, which I'm sure you figured. Nice, clean, exactly as pictured. Good water pressure in the shower, which can be hard to find. A great place to cook if you want to. Access to Netflix which was great for evenings after the whole day of exploring. Chocolate, fruit, sparking wine, and a bottle of white wine in the fridge were such a sweet touch, thank you! Same with the shampoo/conditioner/body wash in the shower. The owners definitely though of those little things. :) A great stay overall.

One thing to note --- without air conditioning it got incredibly hot in there. I mean like sauna hot when we'd get home in the evening. Took a while to cool off. This place could definitely use a window air conditioning unit. I probably wouldn't stay here again when it's into the 90's (it was 93 when we were there). It does have a heater unit for when it's cooler out ;)

Overall a great stay ---- thank you! :)

Cute little place. Great location. Close to lots of wineries, Santa Rosa and the CA coast. Only wish is that there was a door to bedroom and the road was a little noisy. Had a great time!
