A note about the recent devastating fires in Sonoma County: we are so lucky that our cottage and the neighborhood around it, as well as the town of Sonoma have survived the fires and are back in business. Please know that our cottage looks just as the photos show it. Ready for your visit to Sonoma!

A cozy cottage just 1 hour from San Francisco by car but a world away in small town ambiance.

The house combines modern comforts - newly remodeled bathrooms and kitchen with the comfortable lived-in feel of a house well-loved. There is a very private Master Suite with a Cal-King bed and a full bathroom within the room.There is a queen bed in the 2nd bedroom and a queen bed in the middle bedroom, with a large shared bathroom in between. We have new mattresses, and guests who sleep here never want to leave.

Outdoors, there are places for those who like the sun and those who like the shade. Have morning coffee on the front porch surrounded by beautiful landscaping. Grill and eat outdoors at a generous dining table under umbrellas. Watch the beautiful sunsets from the back patio, and stay out under the stars and the Sonoma moon. Enjoy an evening in the spa in peace and quiet.

Everything is provided. Just bring yourselves and your friends and family and enjoy!!!

About Linda Reid

We travel a lot for work, so having a cozy getaway in the warmth of the wine country is the perfect antidote. We chose Sonoma because if you time it right, it is an easy drive from San Francisco. We even enjoy the winter rain, when we watch a movie, listen to music or read.

Linda Reid purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Linda Reid chose Sonoma

We love the Northern California wine country, and wanted a cottage to escape to when the fog of San Francisco summers got too much. Most summer days, there is a 20 degree difference between San Francisco and Sonoma. We also wanted something we could enjoy with friends, after great days of walking, shopping, and wine tasting.

What makes this cottage unique

We love cooking and eating outside, and can do that almost year round. We especially like celebrating important milestones with friends, and use the labyrinth in the way back as a way to let go of the past and energize the future.

Perfect venue for a girls weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Four of my dearest college friends flew in from the East Coast to join me in Sonoma for a long weekend. This cottage could not have been more perfect for us. The backyard is a lovely oasis for relaxing, the kitchen is well stocked (including several choices of ground coffee to brew!), beds were comfortable, and the living/dining areas were perfect for catching up when it was cool or misty outside. The location is perfect to head up valley or in to town. I am an avid runner and made wonderful use of a paved walking path that starts just a few short blocks away. I really cannot say enough about this place and would gladly come back!

Wish we could have stayed longer

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect place to stay. Unfortunately, we packed our days full of wine tours in Napa and Sonoma and barely got to enjoy the house. But the time we were there - it was amazing. Everyone on the trip was saying how much we needed an extra day to just enjoy this house. Along with its amazing garden and outdoor spaces, the owners have truly thought of everything from q-tips to coffee to a stocked pantry, it was all there and ready to go. I used to own and manage vacation rentals and the thought and detail that Linda puts into her property is amazing. We can't wait to come back.

Owner's Response: Thank you for coming to Sonoma right after the disaster, and for enjoying our cottage in just the way we think about it for ourselves! Our intention is to have the cottage be the place you are glad to return to after wonderful day trips for wine and other Sonoma/Napa activities. I am glad that is the your experience. And I do hope you can come back, just to enjoy the garden and peaceful surroundings next time. Many thanks for taking the time to write! Linda

Must Stay. Now on our favorites list

  • 5 of 5

Pictures cannot possibly do this property justice. The outdoor living is phenomenal. The owner had small things in the home that made staying there so easy like coffee and condiments.

The proximity to Sonoma including shops and grocery stores was fantastic. Easy to get around. The neighborhood was very quiet at night. Sitting on the back porch drinking wine and having cheese was just magical.

Highly recommended. Don't pass this opportunity up.

Love this cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Linda's cottage was such a gem. We traveled here with two other couples for 5 days over Labor Day and the size was perfect. The stocked kitchen was huge for us as we cooked breakfast and lunch in most days.The deck was perfect for all of us to sit an enjoy the evening and the hot tub was a bonus! The last night, we had a big family dinner at the outside dinner table and talked about our favorite memories of the trip. This is somewhere we will visit again and defiantly use her cottage!
