Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, 6 Sleeps

Our cool and comfortable cottage is on a quiet street and a five minute stroll to downtown Santa Rosa, with world renowned craft breweries, Michelin rated restaurants, art galleries and shopping. Unique in style and color, and furnished for comfort.

The cottage was designed by artist Lori with her husband Steve. Our idea was to create a crazy art project that you could live in - you're on vacation, have fun! Each room has a different color scheme. Two bedrooms, one bath and a queen sleeper in the living room accommodates six comfortably. All of our beds have premium mattresses so you can sleep tight. A private backyard patio for morning coffee or an evening dinner, BBQ Grill included. Private parking on-site allows guests easy access the cottage from both the side and front entrances, making unpacking easy.

The cottage is the front house of two on the property. The back unit is a private rental. In creating the Emerald Cottage, we were diligent in finding the right tenants who would not only understand the cottage is a vacation rental, but would welcome our guests as their neighbors, and respect their quiet enjoyment and privacy.

The cottage is a non-smoking, both inside and on the grounds. Although we love dogs and pets, we do not allow them in the cottage. We ask that our guests respect our 10pm - 7am 'quiet time'.

About Steve Miksis

Cottage Keepers Steve & Lori share many of the same interests: hiking, art, music and food. We had a blast creating the cottage! As a haven for artists and musicians, Santa Rosa and Sonoma County have many indoor and outdoor music venues, and an abundance of local galleries. Ask us about our favorites! We live right around the corner and are always available for anything you might need.

Why Steve Miksis chose Santa Rosa

The cottage is located in the Historic Luther Burbank Garden's section of downtown Santa Rosa; a walk around the block takes you to Luther Burbank's home and gardens. Five minutes to a variety of restaurants, coffee shops in the neighborhood or in downtown Santa Rosa (walk to get your Pliny!) A ten minute walk down the creek takes you to Railroad Square, the historic part of downtown.

What makes this cottage unique

A quiet, dead end street with little vehicle traffic makes for a relaxing sit on the front porch and a great place to people watch.

A great second stay at the Emerald Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our return visit to the Emerald Cottage was no less wonderful than last year's! Steve and Lori have thought of everything their guests could want for or need, and provide it with such warmth and graciousness. The cottage is right down the block from the Luther Burbank Gardens (highly recommended) and within walking distance to the restaurants and shops in downtown Santa Rosa. This year, we added Napa Valley, (wine tasting at Castello di Amorosa!) and the Petrified Forest in Calistoga to our "tourist" destinations. No matter where we went, however, returning to the Emerald Cottage at the end of the day always brought the contented feeling of returning home. As last year, the front porch was our favorite spot to perch while enjoying a cup of coffee or a glass of wine...or a visit by the neighbor's very friendly cat, Sunny. After many years and many stays at VRBO locations, Steve and Lori's cottage remains one of our favorites!

The perfect downtown whimsical cottage.

  • 5 of 5

This cottage worked out perfect for my husband and I. We go to Santa Rosa every year for the Sonoma County fair and the cottage is within walking distance. The Luther Burbank neighborhood was also very nice with an abundance of downtown restaurants. The cottage had everything we could possibly need and we had most of our meals there. You won't go wrong with choosing this place whether as a couple or family, it felt spacious to us and we are already dreaming about our next visit. It was nice to meet the owner, Steve and a big thanks to him and his wife for a great stay.

Nice, eclectic cottage in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay at the Emerald Cottage from beginning to end. The cottage was as advertised. We had everything we needed. The design features from the bright colors to the characters spread around the cottage were a lot of fun. The best part cottage is it's access to downtown. We could easily walk. Many restaurants within walking distance. Overall great stay, with no hiccups. Thanks Steve!
