About the property

Learn more on instagram @dovecottagesonoma

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 --> on instagram @dovecottagesonoma

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.

Charming and perfect

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful little gem. We stayed here with our small children and it was everything we hoped. Great little location on a very small, sort of rugged and simple street...close to everything but feels very far away. The outdoor space was our favorite. A beautiful yard, cornhole, and of course the pool. The retractable child-safe cover was easy to use and put my mind at ease with the little ones running around. It was heated to a blissful warm so that even cool morning swims were enjoyable. The only thing that I was not expecting was the little “creature” who lives around the area and made a couple appearances in the yard (a mole I think?). He was slow and and kind of cute but he (or she?) took me by surprise at first!

Overall, this place is such a great find. There aren’t many places that have the charm and attention to detail of this home. Its obvious The owners take great pride and want to give guests a wonderful experience. We would absolutely come back here.

Perfect getaway location, beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

We loved every minute of our stay. The cottage is beautifully decorated and has all the amenities you could possibly wish for for a small family or 2 couples. We enjoyed the backyard and pool. Nice neighbors. Great hosts. The information and guides provided upfront and in the house were state of the art. Sonoma downtown area is just minutes away, which makes this a perfect spot for a vacay in winecountry. We hope to be back next year.

Pool and serenity!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the cottage, it was perfectly located as we could get to Napa or Sonoma easily.

Our favorite part of this home was the pool and backyard. My friend and I ran the Napa to Sonoma Half Marathon during our stay and to come back to the house and relax by the pool was perfect!

We plan to do the race again next year and will stay at this home again.

Perfect vacation getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! Sarah has done just a beautiful job creating the perfect vacation home. With a very thoughtful layout, gorgeous interior design, and kid-friendly can't be beat. Our daughters loved the house, the pool, and especially the mint green fridge. We live in San Francisco, so having the enclosed yard and kid-safe pool was like heaven for our city kids. Can't recommend this place enough...we will be back!!!

Thank you Sarah for a lovely stay!

0.3 Miles
Train Town
Car: recommended

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.
