About the property

Private, Quiet, Peaceful Yet Within Minutes of Plaza

This wonderful guest cottage has it all. A fully furnished, beautifully decorated and very private two bedroom guest cottage on a fabulous countryside property in one of the most desirable areas in Sonoma.

As you pass through the private gate to your guest cottage you will notice the wonderful California Oaks and native plants on this meticulously maintained property with added little touches that make the landscape so unique. Painted cows will greet you on your way to your guest cottage and Zen-like statuary is intermixed in the gardens.

The guest cottage has two spacious bedrooms one king and one queen with en-suites for renter's privacy. There is a fully stocked kitchen with everything you will need to make your morning coffee or meal. Sit out on your deck and enjoy that coffee and view the wonderful backyard with its rose gardens, lavender plants and raised gardens. You also have the option to sit out on the side private patio for some morning sunshine or take an early morning walk around the labyrinth on this three acre property.

You are only a short drive - a mile and half - to the Historic Town Plaza. If you enjoy walking, it is a really nice walk into the Plaza along safe country roads. You will pass beautiful homes, wineries, and then and pick up the very popular walking path to the Plaza. You have complete freedom to come and go as you please.

The Sonoma Town Plaza has it all, winery tasting rooms, great shopping, wonderful restaurants and a beautiful public park in the center. Spending a day at the Plaza is very easy to do.

You are also within 5-15 miles from 50 plus world class wineries. There are historic sites to visit, great hiking trails in and around Sonoma including the Jack London Ranch. You might enjoy driving along the Valley of the Moon Road and admiring the beautiful Sonoma wine country. Going this direction you can visit the lovely little village of Glen Ellen or go further north to Kenwood and trendy Healdsburg.

After a day of site-seeing and wine tasting, return to your guest cottage and relax out on your deck with a glass of one of the wines you purchased while you plan the rest of your evening. Life is good in Sonoma and this property will enhance your Sonoma wine country experience.

The guest cottage is complete with all linens, towels, WiFi, iron and ironing board, washer and dryer and exercise equipment.

Guests are not allowed to visit on the property without prior consent from the owner or manager.

Wonderful Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Cat on a Half Moon Cottage. The Cottage was very comfortable and the grounds were amazing. Being a mile and a half from Sonoma Square was great. The owner Barbara has everything guests could possibly need in the Cottage. Definitely will return if the opportunity presents....highly recommend this property.

Pleasant stay

  • 4 of 5

Great place, little extras were so nice. So quiet there. Only downfall was the reception was spotty at best. We have our cell service through Verizon, and were able to make calls in driveway. WiFi was great though. There is a landline at the house. Uber worked well to and from downtown Sonoma. About a 35 minute walk. Owner has long contract but basically she just wants you to respect her property. Would stay again!

Astounding Property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely cottage for a weekend with one other couple and loved it! It’s obvious that the owner takes great pride in the property as the cottage & grounds were meticulously maintained. The pictures do not do justice to this amazing estate. We will definitely come back in the future.

Nice cottage

  • 4 of 5

Very nice small cottage on 3 acres of lovely Sonoma property. Gardens are gorgeous. Best for 2 people (living room is very cozy) but sleeps 4. Cottage was clean/tidy. Lots of rules/conditions for staying there. Be aware, owner is on site in main house. Best for a single couple.

A lovely, compact, comfortable, older section of a much larger home.

  • 4 of 5

Secluded and off the beaten path, this impressive and well kept property was a pleasure to return "home" to at the end of an exciting day. The peaceful back porch, which overlooks raised gardens, created a tranquil atmosphere to enjoy a glass of wine.

The house and property is meticulously maintained and in a beautiful setting outside of Sonoma

  • 5 of 5

The house was very nice for 2 couples for the weekend. The owner was very helpful in providing recommendations for the local restaurants, vineyards and local things to do. The gardens on the property provided a very quite setting to relax at the end of the day.
