About the property

Studio Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

My Cozy Cottage is located in the heart of the wine country. Wine tasting? Fine dining? Relaxing by the Russian River, going to the coast, hot name it! This is the place to come to. Parking right outside the front door. Just incase you brought your best friend with you, there is a fully fenced, shady backyard. Large deck in the front that soaks in the afternoon sunshine. Sleeps 2-4 with a comfy cool-gel memory foam queen bed and two memory foam convertible chairs. Fully equipped kitchen with a gas range. New heater/air conditioner. Located within a block of the local grocery store, the Russian River, Burkes Canoes and Steelhead Beach. Many fine dining option available nearby too. Surrounded by wineries. Approximately 1+ hour to San Francisco. No smoking please!

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!

Why Leslie Tomich chose Russian River

It is easy to get to, has ample parking, dogs are welcomed! The house is very cozy. So many activities nearby if feeling energetic or a great place to relax!

Perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a find! We wished we could have stayed longer. The location was perfect for our plans and very comfortable for two. We will add this to our list of "Places to Remember!"

Cozy spot in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a very cozy spot that is most notable for its price and location. If you're interested in a trip down the Russian River, the cottage is located literally steps away from Burke's Canoe Trips. The cottage is also just a quick drive to both Healdsburg and Guerneville, to say nothing of Forestville itself (where we enjoyed a very yummy brunch). We had four in our group, which was a little tight, but Leslie (the fantastic owner) had warned us it would be. We managed just fine, and would certainly return.

Great Little Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience at the Cottage. We needed a place to stay for the Ironman Vineman. It was a perfect distance between the start and finish line. The Cottage had all the necessity we needed to feel at home. It is a short walk to the market if you needed anything else. Very close to Steelhead Beach too! And a short drive to Johnson's beach were you can rent kayaks, tubes and even umbrellas. It is also nestled in between many wineries. Thanks for making us feel at home. We will definitely be back if we are in the area.

Comfortable and handy

  • 5 of 5

Leslie's place is a nice, comfortable little retreat. Located 15 minutes from 101, it is minutes from many wineries. The Forestville Pizza shop just down the street has some great eats.

Very cozy cottage tucked away in the forest!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great location if you want to be away from all the hustle and bustle of everything. Walking distance to Steelhead Beach and close to wineries, Armstrong woods and a market right down the road. The cottage was small but comfortable and was great for my husband, 7yr old and I. Leslie was very accommodating and helpful with our questions and kept the cottage kitchen cleaned and the kitchen stocked to use. She also left us farm fresh eggs upon arrival! Thank you Leslie for the wonderful stay. We created many memories on this trip. :)
