The Oaks of Olivet on the fringe of the Laguna de Santa Rosa, our six acre paradise, has majestic oak trees, some believed to be over 400 years old. Along with an orchard and large pastures the property also is surrounded by vineyards on two sides. With its address on prestigious Olivet Road, you will be within minutes of 7 award winning wineries. You are in the heart of the famous Russian River Valley, known for the ever popular Pinot Noir.
Just a short 10 minute trip to Sebastopol, 20 minutes to Guerneville and the Armstrong Redwood Forest and 40 minutes to Bodega Bay. Restaurants dot the countryside with gourmet menus typical of this Northern California paradise. Enjoy the country living but drive 15 minutes to be in either the heart of downtown Santa Rosa with it's many shops or travel 20 minutes to Healdsburg with it's quaint character and shop lined town square.
Walk the acreage, view hawks, jack rabbits, foxes and owls. Awake in the morning to hot air balloons floating over the misty morning sky. Sit on the lanai in the evening, sip a glass of wine and view the starry show.
Amenities: Fieldstone gas fireplace, gas barbeque, covered outdoor eating area, outdoor and indoor shower, kitchenette with water cooler, satellite television, dvd player, stereo (outdoor speakers also), cd/dvd library, books, magazines and board games.

We have enjoyed the Oaks of Olivet since 2004 as visitors to Sonoma County. In July of 2010 we made the move from Minnesota to live here full time. We are affordable housing developers and work from our home office. We are on site to make sure our guests have everything they need, but understand that guests call the shots on how much privacy is necessary.
Michelle Olson purchased this cottage in 2004
We fell in love in San Francisco and then visited wine country. This area was an annual anniversary trip for us after we married. The annual trips turned into quarterly visits to Sonoma and Napa. We truely fell for Sonoma and decided to purchase and make a plan to move here to live full time. Our 10 year plan has now come to fruition. We really love the friendly people in the area and the ease of life in general. The local fresh produce is also a real plus.
We have 7 award winning wineries on our road. Our property has a full fruit orchard that we share with our guests. We currently have peach, pear, plum, apple, fig and apricots.
