DEFINITELY WILL BE COMING BACK!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary and didn't want to spend an arm and a leg on a place to stay. I'm glad we found this property! It's exactly what we were looking for and MORE! Nice clean welcoming driveway that's tastefully landscaped, the hosts came out to greet us and show us to our cottage. The cottage itself is cute and super cozy, but large enough so you don't feel cramped. Open up the french doors and you have a view of the garden, go out the other door and you have a view of the fire pit and pool. It was perfect to just sit on our porch, have a snack, a bottle of wine and a cigar.

We brought stuff to make s'mores, but after coming back to the cottage after a big dinner both nights, we were too full and tired to take advantage of this feature. Fire starter, lighter, fire wood, and sticks to roast marshmallows were readily available. The pool was clean, warm, and perfect to cool off and relax in. The gardens and the whole property was well maintained, beautiful and picture perfect. I would consider doing family or couple portraits here.

The hosts were awesome! Continued to let us know if we had any questions or issues, just let them know. They gave us figs from their garden, put fresh cut roses in our room, offered us a taste of their very first pinot noir that they've produced, and even invited us to a screening with some of their friends. When we were outside, either by the pool or just sitting on the porch, we really felt like we had the place to ourselves. Lots of privacy, really quiet with the occasional car passing by, and felt like we were in the middle of the woods, vineyards, garden with so many plants around. My wife said "this is my kind of camping"...obviously, not even close hahaha

All in all, we had an amazing time in Napa and at this property, didn't have any issues, and we loved how cozy and romantic this property was. Thank you to the hosts for making this available to us. We hope we'll be back again really soon!

Napa the way it was meant to be experienced!

  • 5 of 5
The nature surrounding the area was absolutely beautiful and exactly what we were looking for. The garden and the grounds were so peaceful, I would have been happy just sitting around outside all day. It was so quiet with only the occasional car passing by. The bathroom and interior were very clean and well cared for.

- The place is a little smaller than we thought. It is a studio cottage with only a bathroom and no kitchen, but Donna and John were kind enough to provide a BBQ for us.

- It was a bit cold and rainy when we stayed, but luckily the heater worked very well and imitated a cool little fireplace with fire FX and all.

- The only real problem we had during our stay was the appearance of ants in the bathroom. We left some dishes over night and the ants were all over them. There was some ant spray already provided in the bathroom which took care of them real quick, but I assume with the ant spray that this may be a bit of a common thing as they were prepared for it already. Honestly though, you're in the wilderness, so some bugs are to be expected.

- Even though you're surrounded by nature it was a very quick drive into town and everything we wanted to do in Napa. I would absolutely recommend this cottage and both John and Donna really are friendly kind people. Thank you again for everything.

- Jacob and Thea

Charming Cottage nestled between Napa/Sonoma

  • 5 of 5
This was my third stay here with my wife and we can't express enough how much we love it here! Cottage is situated between Napa and Sonoma and just far enough off the beaten path to feel like you're really away from it all. There are several great wineries within a few miles (Domain Carneros & Bouchaine are two of our faves) and not far from our favorite breakfast spot Boone Fly Cafe. Dona and John are very welcoming and do everything they can to make sure you enjoy your stay. Look forward to many more stays here!

Not the best

  • 3 of 5
We stayed here for two nights in the beginning of October. The location of the house is very convenient to both Napa and Sonoma. The house is closely situated near the two other buildings on the property with the pool located in the middle. The outdoor landscaping and lights are very nice. There is also a small fridge, microwave and coffee maker. However, there were a few issues that we had with our stay here. There is no heat in this house, only a small 1.5x2ft heater that produces heat for about 20min and then nothing at all for the rest of the night. This was only a problem because it dropped to 45 degrees at night during our stay. The cleanliness was another issue which including a moth in the bedding when we arrived, large cobwebs at eye level, black dirt/mold around the rim of the bathroom sink, as well as a small ant problem in the bathroom. Overall, it was an okay place to stay for a few nights but we don't plan on returning.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry to hear that everything wasn't perfect for you. We leave our cell phones with you, to contact us with any issues. If you read all our past reviews, our guests loved being here and everything was wonderful. If there was a cobweb that was overlooked, we will definitely be more careful. Cleanliness is very important to us. I just checked the sink and there isn't any mold. The sink is fairly new. Also, if the heater shut down, this was something we weren't aware of. We've never heard this before and we want everything to function perfectly for you. We would not hesitate to call in an electrician anytime of day or night. We were here and we would have addressed that for you immediately had we known. We know how important our visitor's vacations are and we only want good memories.

Charming, peaceful, and beautiful - who could ask for more?

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I were lucky enough to stay and John and Dona's cottage at the end of July. The cottage itself is small but very well appointed and quite comfortable. The grounds are beautiful and so incredibly peaceful. We spent both evenings sitting on the porch listening to the breeze blow through the trees. The cottage is centrally located and it only took us about 15-20 minutes to get pretty much anywhere we wanted to be in Napa. One note...the cottage doesn't have air conditioning. This was never an issue for us as we were out and about during the day when it was warm. In the evenings, it was cool outside and the ceiling fan was all we needed to be completely comfortable. Our hosts were very gracious when we met them and then gave us complete privacy for the rest of our stay. We can't recommend this location highly enough.

Even Better Than the Photos

  • 5 of 5
Can't choose between Napa and Sonoma? Stay here and both are within a short and scenic drive. Then again, you might not want to leave the property with its inviting pool and lush landscaping around the expansive property.

The guest house is far enough from the main house that you feel secluded. Wander the property to discover a rose garden, a "tunnel" made of vines, stands of bamboo and inviting spots to have an outdoor meal.

A microwave, small fridge, coffee maker and just a few plates and cutlery make up the kitchen, but what else do you need in an area famous for its restaurants and perfect for picnics? The bed is comfy, the bathroom is big, and the hosts are friendly and knowledgeable. Enjoy!
