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.

The cottage was the perfect size. Not so big that it was informal, not so small that we felt cramped. Very clean. The extras they provided were welcome, especially the coffee! The owners were completely available the entire stay and quick to accommodate any of our needs. And the location to downtown and all of its amenities wears exceptional. Better than any hotel we could have gotten. I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

Just a great spot to use as a base for wine country

  • 5 of 5

Cute as a button, eclectic, comfy and close enough to walk to downtown Santa Rosa. Fine for four people; bedrooms are well separated.

Cozy Emerald Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here 4/28/17 - 5/1/17 and we loved it. We traveled to Sonoma to visit some of Sonoma's many wonderful wineries to celebrate our daughter's 21st birthday. We wanted a place that would be centrally located in Sonoma County for our day trips to the wineries, we settled on Santa Rosa. We arrived late on Friday, after a long day of traveling, and I'm glad we didn't chose any place further north. We were exhausted from the trip.

We recognized the outside from the pictures online and as we looked around we realized it was impossible to be anything but cheerful and relaxed at this place. Everywhere we looked, it was just fun and relaxing. But it was more than just whimsical. It was well furnished, very clean, towels waiting for us on our beds, instructions how to find and operate everything in the house, and a bottle of wine was waiting on the table when we arrived. There was an A/C unit in the living room window but it cooled off enough at night to make this unnecessary.

A well-organized binder contained info about the owners, Santa Rosa, local attractions, restaurants and other information. If I wanted to nit-pick, I would say menus from the mentioned restaurants would be helpful but I just looked up the menus and reviews on my phone.

Whenever my wife and I stay at a VRBO, we ask ourselves if we would stay here again and we agreed we definitely would stay again. This was a true gem that made our visit memorable.

Perfect place for a week in the wine district

  • 4 of 5

Family of four with two teenagers - we just loved this place. So convenient to be walking distance to downtown Santa Rosa. Thank you Lori and Steve for your attention to details, hospitality and immediate response to any queries we had. We will sure be back next time we want to visit our relatives!
