Luxury Sonoma Cottage: Sanctuary with Pool! Close to Square & Wineries

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Nestled down a little country dirt lane, our cottage named after William Wordsworth's own Dove Cottage, is a calming sanctuary in the middle of the Wine Country, close to Sonoma Plaza. It is a completely private residence with it's own solar-heated pool, large private deck for entertaining, dining, and relaxing. It has a lush, wrap-around garden, and a modern, clean, minimal interior space. It is perfectly located close to Sonoma Square for the best in fine dining and access to some of the best wineries in the world.

Our cottage is perfect for a couple's romantic weekend away, or a fun weekend for a small family with kids enjoying the pool (with automatic cover- so very safe) and Traintown just around the corner. *We do not typically heat the pool December- February due to the cold temperatures, it is almost impossible to get the pool warm enough to enjoy.

Besides being a beautiful little getaway, we have also put thought into the details: Dove Cottage has air-conditioning/heating and features a beautiful custom luxury kitchen. It has two Sony HD TV's with complimentary Netflix and Cable, Full Lightening speed Wi-fi, and unique European design details such as a sliding custom barn-door and two Dutch-style doors. And the back master suite has french doors that lead out to your private deck to enjoy the evening sunsets or the fresh morning air.

Our cottage is close enough to the Square for easy access and proximity yet has a wonderful rural setting that allows you to simultaneously feel away from it all. We have tried to create a space that we love to be in as a family, or as a romantic getaway, and we have put a lot of thought into the design and flow, and we hope that you will love it, and that it will make your time in this beautiful part of the world even more enjoyable and memorable.

About Sarah Miles

We are a family with our hearts split equally between San Francisco and London, but the wine country of Sonoma is a heartland all of its own and we have fallen under its spell. Between the beauty of its countryside, the warmth of its residents, and the endless sunny days and long summer nights, there's no more romantic place that we could imagine to escape to and call a home away from home.

Cottage Chic!

  • 5 of 5

I am so very glad this was the property I decided to stay for my birthday celebration with a couple girlfriends. This will certainly be my property of choice when I come back (which I am already thinking about returning because the region is that magnificent!).

There are no cons to this property, in my opinion. We didn't stay long enough to cook but I love how the kitchen was stocked with some of your cooking essentials. It would have been nice to stay here longer than a weekend to actually try out the kitchen.

I stayed in the master suite and it was basically hotel luxury but in the comfort of a home. I would have loved to try out the pool but it was a bit too chilly. All of the amenities are top of the line and high-tech. The house was definitely renovated recently and they did an EXCELLENT job. The space is not huge but the use of the space is great.

This house would be great for a girls getaway or a romantic stay as well. This was my first house rental, normally I do hotels, but I will definitely be back to this location again (hopefully it won't be booked when I want it!).

Lastly, the guide that the owners left was great. It was really detailed. I was worried that I wouldn't know all the good spots but they definitely had us covered. I ended up trying the Fremont Diner that they suggested which was only about eight minutes from the house and it was PERFECTION.

Such a cute property!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing little cottage, with farm-chic decor. Located conveniently, within walking distance (maybe 25-min leisurely walk) to downtown Sonoma. Quiet road. Just the right amount of space for a family of four. Owner, Sarah, is responsive and super accommodating/flexible. Stayed at Dove Cottage with my parents and sister (left our husbands and kids at home!) for a relaxing adults weekend to celebrate my mom's 60th birthday. 20 minutes to Napa and 30 minutes to Yountville . This was the perfect choice for us. So much nicer than staying in a cramped hotel room, with no outdoor space. We will definitely be back, perhaps in the summer so we can take advantage of the pool! I've already told several friends if they're ever in the Sonoma area, they HAVE to stay here! Thank you, Sarah, for providing such a wonderful home base for our celebratory weekend!

Great rental!

  • 4 of 5

I rented this cottage with three friends for a few days in Nov 2016. Great place and location ... I would easily rent again (and must be quite nice in the summer with the pool). Great set up for a girls weekend to spend touring and relaxing. Kitchen could have a few more mugs and previously mentioned the shower pressure is very low ... but these are small issues.

perfect little house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in the Dove Cottage! It's a perfect little house - very nicely decorated, clean and in a great location. It was perfect for our family of four. Although the house is small, it is designed very well so that you feel like you are in a larger space. The backyard perfect for sipping wine from the area and playing in the pool if the weather is right. I highly recommend staying here. We will definitely be back.

Great little bungelow!

This was a great spot and setup for our friends and ours to enjoy our Thanksgiving! Well laid out and taken care of and only a couple of miles to the square. We enjoyed our time very much!

Very cute home!

  • 4 of 5

Overall we loved our stay at this adorable home. He pool was fantastic, clean and warm. Located close to town. One recommendation would be to get the hot water faucet in the bathroom sink repaired, as it comes out slowly and the handle seems broken. We did experience a plumbing issue while staying at the home but found the owner was very responsive and had the plumber was there quickly to fix the issue, so we did not have an interruption as we were out and about for the day. Overall a fun vacation and we would come back again.

Our house is across the street from the Lodge at Sonoma- perfect if you are attending a wedding there. It is about 6 blocks from the square, but it is a long walk.
