About Leslie Tomich

I love dogs, I love vacationing! Day to day I am a full time Realtor in Sonoma County which is very fulfilling. I purchased the cottage in 2011 as a get away for my family. Then I used VRBO to book a condo when I went to Hawaii in 2013. I saved a lot of money being able to cook for my family and thought hey-why don't I let other people enjoy my cottage when my family isn't using it!

Lovely , clean, cozy cottage located in the heart of wine country

  • 5 of 5

This is a cozy, charming, one-room cottage with an amazing use of its limited space. Everything is included: full kitchen, bath, sleeping and eating areas all within a step of one another. This is a perfect space for one or two people wanting to explore Sonoma County and all iof ts charms. It's a hop to the Russian River, and about a 15-minute, gorgeous drive to Guerneville. Leslie was extremely kind to me in helping me to navigate my way to the cottage when I got lost (be aware that cell and GPS service can drop out completely in the area -- at least it did for me -- so it pays to look the precise location up on a map beforehand).

I'd love to stay here again and plan on requesting the cottage when I make another trip out that way.

sweet cabin feeling

  • 5 of 5

We have friends up the street in Forestville, so when we saw the ad for this place nearby, and it is dog friendly, we were thrilled. It's small, but makes the most of the space. The kitchen is large enough and has everything you need. Love that it has a Q bed (not full) and the heater warmed the place fast. The yard is fully fenced and our tiny dogs enjoyed the layer of fall leaves on the ground. Parking out front (but off the street), private and sunny. Excellent location! Clean, efficient, comfortable! Thanks for a nice weekend!

Cute Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Having a enclosed backyard is a big plus with a dog. The bed was very comfortable. My husband would have preferred more comfortable chairs to enjoy our morning coffee. All in all I would return to stay in this cottage.

Perfect for Two

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I were looking for something that was in close proximity to both Safari West and the Windsor Golf Club when I found this place. We picked it because it had a full kitchen and an air conditioner. It was perfect for us because we brought food to cook dinner and breakfast for two nights and the kitchen had everything we needed. The bed was very comfy and we both slept well on it. Overall, it was perfect for us and we would definitely stay again if we are in the area!

Cute little house in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Leslie's house. It's a cute little house with a great front porch and very secure nice yard for our dog. The front porch is also fenced in, so we enjoyed sitting on the porch with our pup enjoying the nice weather. The house is very nearby a nice park area, and also not far from downtown Forestville, which had quite a few restaurants. We went to the Backyard and it was delicious!

Cozy & comfy for relaxing weekend away

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a local wedding and it was perfect. Very clean, cozy little place. Very comfy bed & well-appointed kitchen. The little market up the street had great fresh produce for cooking. The highway noise was a bit noticeable at night but it was chilly and sound carries in the cold--don't let that distract you from staying at this place!
