Guestbook comments from the owner

The place is great. Right in the middle of a garden with a big wonderful patio. Plenty of space for eating, inside at the breakfast bar or kitchen table, or outside on the picnic table. The furniture is cozy and super comfortable. Great TV and WiFi. Blake and Anita are great hosts if you need them. Very generous, enthusiastic and accommodating.

clean comfortable home, kitchen with all essentials, cozy back patio

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Blake and Anita's property. It was comfortable, clean, quiet and not fussy. The kitchen had everything we needed. The back yard and patio were cozy and comfortable. The plaza in Healdsburg is about a five minute drive away. We would stay

there again.

Good location, reasonable and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

This was home base for our 19 day stay in Sonoma County. We found this to be a good location from which we drove out to our daily adventures. We usually returned and cooked the evening meal at the house, often grilling in the nice backyard. The house was very comfortable for the two of us, and the beds were very good. As noted in several other reviews, the house is a little worn, but we found it to be clean and well maintained. The house is close to the road, but we were not bothered by road noise. Blake and Anita live next door and responded quickly to our questions and request (for more wine and eggs!). We usually make breakfast and dinner at our vacation rentals, and the cooking situation is a little below average. The pots and pans, and the silverware could be improved upon.

We enjoyed staying here and would stay here again in the future.

Continues to be great!

  • 5 of 5

This is the 5th time I have stayed at Blake and Anita's cottage and it's still my go-to place to stay in Wine Country. New and improved this time is a push button lock so you don't need to carry keys around, but that is a minor improvement on what was already great. The location is perfect for getting anywhere you want in Sonoma, Napa, or Mendocino, but all that and it's quiet, country living and comfortable too. It is clean and well maintained and I definitely recommend it.

Perfect Location for Wine Country Trip

  • 5 of 5

Black and Anita were great. We had fresh eggs from their chickens, homemade wine and bouquets of wild flowers. The location was terrific. We attended a wedding that was at an organic farm just up the way from Blake's property so it was excellent for us. I highly recommend staying here and will come back again.
