About the Property

Cheerful 2BR/1BA Santa Rosa cottage, close to vineyards and scenic outdoors.

If you’re looking for an extremely clean, comfortable and cheery place to stay in Wine Country, Sally’s Garden Cottage is the cozy little place in town that’s perfect for your party of 2-6 people.

Located in a friendly, traditional neighborhood in the Montgomery Village area of Santa Rosa, Sally’s is just off Hwy. 12 (otherwise known as Sonoma County’s “Wine Country Highway”) within 5 minutes of Hwy 101. It’s easy to walk out the front door for a stroll through attractive neighborhoods as well as interesting shops. It's a quiet neighborhood, suitable for quiet, respectful guests.

Nearby, Annadel State Park and Spring Lake Regional Park offer miles of walks, hikes and mountain bike choices. The local area boasts both fine restaurants, casual dining choices, performance arts and galleries.)

With rates significantly lower than acceptable local hotel rooms, Sally’s Garden Cottage is easy on the budget.

Newly remodeled and freshly painted in fall 2014, the house feels brand new. The cottage is bright, comfortably appointed and features the conveniences of home—complete with a wonderful outdoor garden setting and barbecue in the fully fenced-in back yard. If you like blooming flower beds and honest-to-goodness organic vegetables you can pick in season, you will feel right at home here. This is a place for a quiet, serene getaway. If potential guests are looking for a part house, they need to look elsewhere.

The kitchen is fully appointed with cookware and tableware. It features granite tile counter tops and tile floor, stainless steel fridge, dishwasher, full-size gas range, microwave, disposal and built-in filtered water at the sink. The house also features central A/C and heat as well as ceiling fans in every room to control air flow and maximize comfort.

Accommodations include two pleasant bedrooms with comfortable queen-sized beds. The living room has a leather sofa, which pulls out into a queen-sized sofabed. The cottage’s bathroom is bright and clean, and features a tub and shower combination.

The living room is bright with multiple windows and features a built-in 50” flat screen TV with 6-speaker surround sound system and blue-ray DVD player. High-speed wireless internet service is available throughout the cottage.

Guests also have laundry privileges with access to the washer and dryer. Sorry, no smoking indoors or pets under any circumstances.
Those with an appreciation of conscious living will appreciate this 850 sq. ft. home’s organics, solar tube lighting and roof-mounted solar array. All electric power is from renewable sources, including solar panels and Northern California’s geysers, the largest producing geothermal generating field in the world!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Sally is a writer, spiritual leader and lover of plants and animals who has carved out a sanctuary for guests in the middle of Santa Rosa. She believes in healthy, natural living and creating delightful spaces. Sally and her husband, Tom, lived in this property until late 2014, when they converted it to a vacation rental.

Why the Owner Chose Memorial Hospital Neighborhood, Santa Rosa, CA, USA:
Sally's Garden Cottage is ideal for smaller parties who don't want the size or added expense of a 3-5 bedroom house. It is perfect for area visitors because of its central location--both within town and in Wine Country.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
As the name of the property implies, it offers a wonderful garden setting, from the flowers and vegetable plants in front to the large garden beds and abundant blooms that make the back yard a little bit of paradise. Add to this the property's location just a couple blocks from Montgomery Village, with hundreds of shops and restaurants within easy walking distance.
