We traveled quite a lot and found that we liked to stay in beautiful homey places with personality. That's what we have tried to create at Midsummer Night's Dream Cottage. Its our retreat, and we want others to enjoy it, too. The Cottage gave us the calm space to be creative, and its where we developed a unique music software that is being launched as an internet company in 2011.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2004

We wanted a place that encouraged creativity and friendship. Our location in the wine country is perfect. The surrounding area is lovely and we are blessed to have access to the greatest food and wine, and the good cheer those brings with them. We needed a place we could go with our dear Scottish Deerhound, Maurice, who was a gentle presence and a connoisseur of cheese.

We love the silence. We love the birds. We love being less than 2 miles from Healdsburg Plaza, but tucked away in a secluded spot. This is the best place for cycling, wine tasting, trying incredible food, unique shopping, sleeping or reading a book, or talking late into the night with friends around the fireplace.

A tasteful and comfortable place to wake up to before a busy day of wine-tasting... And even better, to come back to after the hullabaloo! I was at ease the moment I walked in. Then, I sat down and that's all she wrote! I was ready to start the vacation. What a pleasure to treat myself, get back to nature and forget the world. Everyone needs a time-out once in awhile.

Charm, CHARM, c h a r m !

  • 5 of 5
A woodsy whimsical getaway place, to relax and sip the incredible wine of the area. I never wanted to leave. The cottage is conveniently situated near wineries, near Healdsburg, near the 101 highway yet it is quiet and feels remote. The house and deck are shaded by big trees, so it's not as hot as it is in town. There's internet and TV if you need to check on the world, but if you don't need to, then unplug and taken-in the garden views and the rolling hills. A Dream Cottage that gives you a big "welcome home!"

A delightful and relaxing experience that I want to do again!

This is my family's new vacation home (at least that's what we are pretending). We are going to reserve, way in advance, and make this an annual trip!
Before we arrived at Midsummer night's Dream-Cottage, I was completely stressed out, getting headaches and...then...this place healed me. And my family is happy too.
I appreciate The quietness and serenity of the house, the charm of the decor, the reliability of the owner when we had extra asks.
The entire visit went smoothly and we hated to leave.
Thank you for all the little touches and extras! We just love the deck and the little meditation studio that has a fountain with running water, which is so calming/soothing.
As we heard many times in Healdsburg - "namaste"

Amazing, Serene Cottage

  • 5 of 5
My 3 girlfriends and I stayed at the cottage over the weekend while attending Dry Creek Passport. What a beautiful, serene setting around the cottage. The cottage had plenty of space for all of us and was clean and comfortable. We cooked breakfast in the cottage, snacked through the wineries for lunch and were lucky enough to walk into Scopa at 6:15p without a reservation on Friday getting a table immediately. I will definitely tell my friends about this wonderful cottage and look forward to staying there again.

What a disappointment!

  • 1 of 5
We booked this cabin as a vacation to spend with our daughter and son-in-law, who are moving to California from the East coast (military). After driving across the country with two dogs, we were ready to relax and unwind, and do some cooking (vs. eating out as we had been doing for over a week before arriving). The cottage was in disrepair, with many electrical outlets not working, even broken glass in the bathroom window. It was also not as clean as we would have liked. We had to actually wash all the kitchen ware before using, as it felt filmy and greasy. The kitchen was not well equipped and very unorganized. The applances were old and dirty. Also, there were no instructions left as to where to deposit garbage, how to operate furnance, etc. The nights were a bit chilly (high 40's low 50's) and when I inquired as to whether there was any additional firewood available, the owner emailed me that I might want to go to the Ace hardware store if I wanted additional firewoood. The outdoor patio could have been wonderful, except that there were leaves and debris everywhere - so much so that it made it difficult to be comfortable and enjoyable. This house could have been more accommodating if it had only been cleaned and better organized. We have rented many places when we travel, and most live up to their advertisement. But, especially for the price we paid for this one, we feel like we got "taken" this time. Especially after doing additional research and finding other properties with so much more to offer for the same or better prices. Bottom line - if this owner wants to charge this much to rent out their place, then they should live up to that kind of pricing's expectations.

Owner's Response: Of course we are sorry that a guest would feel disappointed. In truth, we have many guests and get glowing reviews (magical, etc) 99.8% of the time. For instance, the folks who left just before this unhappy guest arrived spent a week at the Cottage and said they hated to leave. Our rates are very reasonable for this special vacation area and we invite dogs (they had 2!) at no extra cost...so I guess our place just didn't fit these visitors' needs. We are in a gorgeous natural setting so there will be leaves on the deck if the wind blows, and it rained during their visit. We think its nice that we leave firewood for our guests. It never occurred to us that we would need to provide instructions for the furnace, as it is controlled with an ordinary wall-mounted thermostat! Regarding the electrical outlets, some of them work only when the light switch is in the "on" position. I guess they didn't figure that out either. The Cottage has character and soul...it speaks to almost everyone who stays. Regrettably, these guests didn't feel the love. We do appreciate hearing from our guests and take all comments seriously. We will continue to improve based on guest feedback, including from this guest. We want our guests to go away delighted by their stay.

The photos drew me in, but they hardly do this place justice! A truly beautiful home in a gorgeous environment. You'll never want to leave the patio -- we could barely bring ourselves to go to sleep. Speaking of, the bedrooms are out of a dream -- beautiful, comfortable and totally inviting.

I could go on and on... the perfect place to stay while you explore beautiful Sonoma County. I only wish I could have stayed longer. We will be back!
