QUIET COUNTRY COTTAGE, PRIVATE LANE, GORGEOUS VIEW OF HILLS, GARDEN,PRIV.GARDEN

Sebastopol Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom with queen bed, 1 bath , lvrm has daybd, dining area, sleeps 3 total

Our cottage is on a lane off Cherry Ridge Road. It is surrounded by orchards, organic gardens and pinot vineyards, 20 minutes to the beach, 4 miles west of town. We are near numerous wine tasting vineyards, small cheese factories There is a 50 min. plus drive to San Francisco. Locally there are many fine restaurants which feature local, organic fresh entrees. Many byciclists use our street for long jaunts to nearby paths through of meadows and woods. WELCOME BASKET with fresh fruit, fresh coffee beans to grind in the grinder, org. ww waffle ingred. ready to mix and bake, delicious snacks and beverages.

Unique to Sonoma Country: Best Sonoma County stretch of Russian River to canoe:

Alexander Valley to Healdsburg. Rent from Trowbridge in Healdsburg. This stretch has mild rapids, Great Blue herons, turtles, fish and more. Do get out on the beach where they will pick you up. The last distance to the bridge in Healdsburg is against the wind. Pack extra clothing or food in water proof bags.

Little known source for amazing in season peaches:

Dry Creek Peach and Produce, off Dry Creek Road on Yoakim Bridge Road.

Best gondola ride to a mountain top west of Lake Tahoe:

Sterling Vineyards in the Napa Valley. They also have an excellent winery tour

See a giraffe without leaving the continent:

Safari West on Porter Creek Road has tours available on their 75 acre wild animal preserve.

The Petrified forest on Porter Creek Road, the Old Faithful Geyser just North of Calistoga, the Ripley Museum.

Unique to Sonoma Country: Most Scenic Drives:

I have three bests...

1) Coleman Valley Road from Occidental to the coast. (a few min. from our cottage)

2) Geyser’s Road. Take Alexander Valley Road to Old Winery Road to Geysers Road. It winds up to Geysers geothermal plant which you can see from the road. Steam rises out of the ground and some of the many pipes. The views are stunning and the chaparral terrain is unusual and dramatic.

3) West Dry Creek Road, from Healdsburg take Westside to West Dry Creek and go north. I like it in the fall when the vineyards and trees show their fall color. Great wineries along the way too.

Unique to Sonoma Country: Most impressive yet easily overlooked natural wonder:

Armstrong Woods has many impressive trees including two over 300 feet tall. After logging for many years Colonel Armstrong decided to leave a little bit for all of us with his name on it. Take Hwy. 116 to Guerneville (don’t pronounce it “Guerneyville”) and turn north on Armstrong Redwoods Road go to the end.

Best Ice Cream:

Located just steps from my office, Screamin’ Mimi’s. On the corner of Hwy. 12 and 116 in Sebastopol. Mimi’s mud must be tried at least once in your life.

We are retired teachers and have developed an acre plus of organic fruits, vegetables and flowers to make the cottage pleasant. You will be our only guest and therefore very important. We are in a separate house but nearby in case you might need something.

Dennis/Dorinda Tapley purchased this cottage in 1987

It is in one of the most beautiful country locations of Sebastopol with lots of wildlife and birds. Its location is close to many walking and biking paths and wineries. We are surrounded by organic orchards, forests and have lovely views.

SWEET,QUIET,COMFORTABLE

  • 4 of 5
We only stayed a weekend and had multiple activities that kept us away from the cottage. I enjoyed returning at the end of the evening to the comfortable bed. I did have a couple hours to enjoy the porch with its country- like view one afternoon which was very relaxing.
We (3 of us- myself and 2 teens) loved the heated bathroom as the mornings were chilly.
My only issue was finding the side road that led to the cottage We arrived at 10 at night, it was dark, and a little bit of a challenge finding the place.

AN EXCELLENT HOME AWAY FROM HOME!

  • 5 of 5
We spent the weekend at this cozy cottage in the hills of Sebastopol. The cottage is in a fantastic location with plenty of scenery and wineries around. Inside the cottage it is well appointed and very comfortable. Waffles were provided by the owner for our first morning breakfast and they were excellent. I would most definitely recommend this location to anyone looking to spend time in the wine country of California.

CUTE, PRIVATE, QUIET, CLEAN, AND COZY

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

It was near town (Sebastopol) and was an ideal place for us to stay. We needed to stay for the weekend so that we could attend friend's party in town. We considered getting a hotel room, but since there were three of us, we wanted something a little bigger.

This cottage was perfect! Everything was clean, easy to use, and well labeled.

It's very quiet at night and private. We loved it!

BEAUTIFUL, PEACEFUL AND PRIVATE

  • 5 of 5
This is a lovely cottage with a beautiful large porch and garden. Sebastopol is a great little town (go to Taylor Maid coffee!) and the surrounding area is lovely. The owners of the cottage provided delicious fresh fruit and waffle batter on the first day. The owners were very respectful of our privacy. A terrific spot. Thank you so much!

PEACEFUL SANCTUARY AND WARM WELCOME

  • 5 of 5
When you really want to get away and just listen to birds and see the sunrise from bed, this is the place for you. Excellent bed mattress, real cotton blankets, fluffy towels. Plenty of space inside and out to spread out and read, play, rest and take in the beautiful setting. Pre-arrange if you like real milk with your coffee or absolutely must have working wifi. Street address signs are hard to read and property is not obvious from the 2 lane windy highway.

There is one step inside. Shower/bath would be difficult for anyone with hip problems or bad balance.

Less than an hour away is Calistoga with hot springs and Osmosis Spa - the other way - get the enzyme bath. Enjoy.

Owner's Response: We have a two step with rail next to tub as clawfoot is higher than a reg. tub. Happy to supply milk if we know you will need.

CUTE, PEACEFUL COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
I brought three girlfriends here for my birthday weekend, and it was a perfect place to stay. There was a small kitchen which we utilized to cook a simple meal the first night. The in-law is quiet, well kept and in a beautiful setting. It's off the beaten path of your typical wine-country places to stay, but a short drive to wineries and restaurants. The views from the house are of valleys and vinyards - gorgeous.
It's close to Healdsburg, which although I have been to wine country many times, have never really explored. It was fun to discover what Healdsburg had to offer - good restaurants and bars.
Since then, I have been recommending it to friends and would defnitely stay here again.
