Overview

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.

A Comfortable Country Get Away

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay at the Country Cottage. It was very cozy, comfortable and peaceful. The cottage is clean, well maintained and well equipped with anything you might need. The property is awesome with a beautiful view towards the east. The sunrises were spectacular! We also enjoyed a nearby walk through the countryside. I highly recommend this cottage.

A very peaceful retreat. Loved the friendly kitty.

This is a great place to stay, way better then a hotel. And for the same price. Great waffles and fruit for breakfast. Short drive to coastline and shopping. Found great service and food at Boathouse Sushi in Santa Rosa and Omlette Express in Windsor. The rest of our meals was able to be prepared at the cottage with great ease. Enjoyed beautiful gardens and many birds with great serenity without any intrusions on our privacy. Thank you so much to the wonderful owners who put together such an awesome getaway.

Ahhh....

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect retreat that 3, almost-40, girlfriends needed to reconnect away from kids, spouses and the daily grind. The cottage is exactly as described, the back porch overlooks a vegetable garden and you can see hills of vineyards in the distance. The lane outside is bordered by blackberry brambles which make for a tasty treat on an early morning walk. Sebastopol is a cute town with a laid back vibe. Highly recommend the LaBodega Dinner Club. The cottage is about 10 minutes from town, 30 minutes from the beach. Loved our time there so much, I'm trying to plan a return trip with my husband next month!
Tips: Try to arrive before dark. Although the directions the owner sends are perfect, we over shot the driveway a few times. If you're big coffee drinkers, bring your own beans. The owners supply enough for one (amazingly, delicious French-pressed) pot, but we drank more than that.

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!
