Additional information about rental rates
- Tax Rate 12%
We mostly book long term stays, so we only book weekends if the cottage is not rented shortly before the desired dates. We are trying to avoid losing a month-long booking because we have locked up a weekend in the middle. If you are seeking 2 or 3 nights and don't have lodging about two weeks before your desired dates, check with us again and if we are open we will be happy to accommodate you.
There is no City Tax on stays of 30 days or more. We do not charge cleaning fees, security deposits, or any other hidden charges. Unhappily, VRBO has recently (March 2016) added a service fee of 4 to 12 per cent if you book through their payment system. This is a fee we opposed and we do not see a penny of it.
We have a three week cancellation policy, if your plans change, please notify us at least three weeks prior to your arrival date. If a party were to fail to arrive without notifying us, we would charge one night's lodging on their credit card.
Rates are stated for two guests. Additional adult guests are charged $40 per night.

We are located in the heart of the California Wine Country, there are dozens of wineries within minutes of the cottage. However Sonoma has many other charms, many places of importance in early California history, such as the northernmost of California's famous Spanish missions, St. Francis Solano Mission on the Plaza, only three blocks from the cottage. Our restaurants are many, varied and close by, indeed many visitors don't get into their cars for days at a time.
Year Purchased: 1975
