Adorable Cottage, Stunning Views, 1Bd/1 Bath, Hot Tub
A cozy cottage with an extended porch and hot tub, this is the perfect place to barbecue, sip wine, or enjoy a good book -- all while taking in the incredible views of the Sonoma Valley vineyards.
Tucked away at the end of a quiet lane atop Moon Mountain, this serene spot overlooks the entire Sonoma Valley. On a clear day you can even see the San Francisco skyline!
The private outdoor hot tub and the large porch are perfect spots for unwinding and enjoying your heavenly retreat.
Leave your worries behind as you drift off in peace and quiet, and rekindle a romance with someone special or simply give yourself that alone time you have been longing for.
The cottage is fully equipped with all you'll need for a weekend or a weeklong getaway--there are a couple things to note, however:
1) There's no Wifi at the cottage, and cell service is spotty (many guests love this fact!). There is a landline, and cell phones usually work fine for texting and short calls.
2) We are located on the top of a Sonoma mountain, which means the views are stunning but also that we are in the midst of nature and with that can come natural things like bugs and occasional critters, though generally not inside the cottage :). So long as this sounds good to you we're happy to host!
**Sorry, no single night stays! Please see the calendar for minimum night stays, which vary by season.**
***FIRE STATUS: We were very lucky and the immediate property and structures were untouched. There is no smoke smell, and the views are still lovely. I added some photos of the scenery post-fire, since some fire damage is still visible. Each time it rains it gets more and more green! ***

About Property Manager
I'm honored to manage this beautiful property. It is quite possibly the loveliest place in all of wine country, so I feel very lucky to be able to help others experience it. The estate it is on has been owned by the same family for several years. The cottage is exquisitely maintained and professionally managed.
Property Manager purchased this Cottage in 2000

Amazing views and very very private.
Very nice place with exceptional views. The views from the hot tub of the city lights are awesome.
Quaint cottage in beautiful setting overlooking vineyards.
This was our first visit to Sonoma and this cottage will definitely be a place we refer friends and come back to. The setting is quiet and beautiful - it was a great place to come back to after a day of visiting wineries and shopping. The kitchen had everything we needed and the linens were great quality. The wireless service was spotty, but I think that is to be expected in the location. We enjoyed beautiful walks in the morning on the drive coming up the cottage. A couple "better ifs": Please trim the tree/bush that blocks the beaustiful view off the back deck - I justified the high cost of this rental because of the setting and views, it was a big bummer sitting on the deck having the view blocked by that tree/bush. I agree with others that the directions could be better. The driver we used for our wine tours is a native of Sonoma and she even got lost with the directions. Better signage would help.
Overall a beautiful stay!
Wine tasting paradise
This cottage is located on top of Moon Mountain with outstanding views.
A rustic and romantic place to stay while visiting wine country.
Exactly what we expected! Loved our coffee on the back porch each morning watching the sunrise and our walks alongside the vineyards! Very peaceful would definitely come back!
Cleanliness an issue. Property has seen better days.
Everything about this rental is old - even the lockbox. Flies were all over the bathroom and bedroom. Sink in kitchen chipping and rusted. Slip covers and blankets cover the furniture most likely to hide stained and frayed upholstery. Landscaping was over grown. Washer and dryer from the 1980's were sitting on the deck. Absolutely zero cell reception.
We used the shower to clean up and then left. Never staying any of the 3 nights booked. Owner was not willing to make any amount of a refund.
Amazing views, total privacy, HIGHLY recommend!
If you're looking for a quiet romantic setting with beautiful views, this is the place! We ate breakfast each morning looking out on the vineyard below and watching the wildlife - jack rabbits, a family of quail with the cutest little babies, lizards and too many types of birds to count! The cottage is light and bright, very comfortable and homey. The kitchen is well set up for making meals if you don't want to eat out all the time, but it's located close enough to Sonoma Square to make it a quick and easy drive to dine out. Our only complaint was that the hot tub had so many chemicals that it was difficult to breathe while in it. And we would recommend putting a small bistro table out on the porch to make morning coffee a little more convenient. Otherwise, this place is total paradise. We hope to visit again soon!
Overlooking a world-class winery, the property is conveniently located minutes from over 40 wineries in the Sonoma Valley, yet close to town. Enjoy easy access to wine tasting, sight seeing, shopping in the beautiful Sonoma Square, restaurants from 5 star cuisine to local burger joints, The Sonoma Mission Inn's world famous spa (at the bottom of our hill), the Sonoma Golf & Country Club golf course, Jack London state park in beautiful Glen Ellen, and much more!
