Property description

private, free standing cottage with own bath and kitchen on small family farm in rolling hills of Sebastopol. This cottage was featured on FYI Newtwork's "Little House Hunter" tv show. The cottage has its own yard and garden. It overlooks some farm animals and a eucalyptus grove. You will see our two horses, chickens and maybe our milking goat meander by on the other side of the fence. The cottage is fully insulated for even temperature. It is bright, private, modern-rustic with open beam ceilings and a Vermont Castings gas vented fireplace. A flick of the switch and 'voila' a beautiful, warm fire in the hearth. The brand new bathroom has a glass shower, no tub. There is a queen-sized bed with the most comfortable mattress imaginable. While the cottage is most suitable for two, there is also an organic cotton and wool coil full-size futon sofa that sleeps two. The cabin is easily accessible from parking area.
You can really cook there. There is a two burner stove, a large microwave, toaster oven, coffee and tea maker, and lots of pots and pans, etc. We are happy to share our farm fresh eggs, and whatever else may be in season on the farm. We try to leave it stocked with coffee, tea, condiments, honey, etc. and a little fresh goat milk in the fridge. The guests have exclusive use of the adjacent yard. There is a small garden there where guests can help themselves to strawberries, greens for a salad, fresh herbs or whatever is in season.
The farm is located in the Twin Hills area of Sebastopol. This desirable area is known for its rolling hills, apple orchards, Christmas tree farms and now vineyards. It is in the Russian River Appellation of wine country, known for chardonnay and pinot noir grapes. There are many beautiful walks to take right out the door. While you may feel far away from it all, downtown Sebastopol is less than a ten minute drive, and door to door we are twenty minutes to the beaches and cliffs of Bodega Bay. There is such a variety of things to do in our area. Sebastopol is famous for its award winning wineries, restaurants and antique shops. It also has an artsy-bohemian feel, and many residents and restaurants are dedicated to the slow food movement. There is also great swimming, kayaking, canoeing and picnicking at the Russian River. You can hike through the Redwoods at Armstrong Woods. We can fill you in on our favorite spots and activities.
The cottage has a smart tv, wireless internet, dvd player, indoor fireplace, free parking, smoke and carbon monoxide detector, full kitchen, shampoo, conditioner, soaps, hair dryer. (While we have a two night minimum if you see an open night between reservations and would like to book feel free to check with me).

Sonoma County ordinances require quiet hours between 10 pm -7am. Room for two cars maximum. TOT Cert. No. 1513N

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Hi. We are Mary and Bruce. I, Mary, was born and raised outside of Boston, then spent ten years in San Francisco where I went to law school and became a human rights lawyer. I then spent ten years in Marin. I moved to my little farm in Sebastopol in 2004 because I wanted to live and raise my children in the country, with lots of space around us. I chose Sebastopol specifically for its open attitude, great schools, rural charm, and its proximity to the beach and Russian River. When I brought my children, then toddlers, to see the property it was in August and the trees were dripping with apples. The kids ate several each, and the next morning my two year old said, 'Mommy, I want to go back to the apple house.' And the rest was history. We still call it the Apple House, and are really happy here, eating from the trees and garden, riding our horses through the old orchards, sharing meals with friends. Bruce, a native Californian and fellow nature, animal and farm lover, joined our clan a few years ago. We've had a lot of fun creating our guest cottage. We love it! We hope you will love it too.
