MY LITTLE FARM COUNTRY COTTAGE

Santa Rosa Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Spending time on our farm will give you the gift of country silence that increasingly is out of reach in our noisy, fast paced over crowded world. You will hear roosters crow, donkeys bray and other typical farm sounds to delight the senses. Staying on the land provides a brief, but intimate, glimpse into the way things used to be and confirms that, somewhere in this technologically advanced world, there are simple charming and unhurried enclaves still viable. There are some of us who are still living quite well on what we cultivate from the land. In these microcosms of society you'll find counterbalance from the hectic distractions of the city to a slower quieter rhythm of country routine.

The premise of a farm stay is relatively simple: we open our farm to visitors and share with you the many facets of life off the beaten path. Seemingly a world away, yet close to San Francisco and situated in the center of the Wine country of Sonoma County.

We are a small working farm in Santa Rosa and easily accessible from all major airports in the bay area. Visitors are invited to participate in the daily chores, (this is not a requirement for your stay, simply a choice) and may rejoice in the opportunity to get in touch with nature--literally. Tasks can include the feeding of hens, and gathering of eggs, grooming the horses, barn chores such as mucking out a stall, or weeding flower and vegetable beds to name a few. If your first love is the earthly delight of soil, we have multiple gardens and orchards to tend. This is your vacation to do as you please, if Wine tasting and extraordinary meals is what you long for, Sonoma County has them in abundance.

Accommodations are simple, a lovely little cottage with a welcoming rose arbor inviting you to step into a more simple relaxed place. You can enjoy predictable comforts of a porch swing while sipping a glass of sweet tea. Sit with your morning coffee next to the well tended rose garden while hearing the buzzing bees busily gathering nectar for the hives on the farm. Relax in the delightful display of hummingbirds in our butterfly garden, all under a wide sky with long views to Taylor Mountain. A farm stay with us allows you freedom of light and space, gaining an appreciation of the value and beauty of ordinary things almost forgotten. While gliding smoothly under the willow tree your senses will delight in the animals that ramble close by. You may hear occasional quacking, honking, neighing, peeping and always the whispering of leaves beckoning you to be still.

We had an absolutely fantastic time here at "My Little Farm Country Cottage"! The hosts were very friendly and we felt instantly welcomed. This is such an incredible charming little farm! All the animals were very sweet from the dogs and cats, to the little goats. The alpacas/llamas(?) were also very cute.

The bed was very comfortable and the amenities provided the perfect opportunity to have a place to rest after a great day of exploring the coast, wine tasting, or hiking in Armstrong Redwoods.

While I was there to run the Santa Rosa Marathon, I did not get too much an opportunity to get to do many of the fun things on the farm. I did enjoy "feeding" the goats. Serra had an absolute ball with the dogs and sweet kitties. I definitely will partake in Meyer's offer to do some "chores" on the farm next time.

We also had a bit of a bonding moment when the earthquake in Napa hit Sunday morning at 3:20 AM. We ran outside and Julie and Dick were out there, too. All was well, we marveled at nature, and then we went to starting our day as the earthquake ended up being our "wake-up" call for the marathon.

The pool is wonderful and a dip in the spa, right next to the front door of the cabin, is an awesome way to end the day - no matter the adventure! As we drove away with a box stuffed full of tasty vegetables from the farm, we said to each other, "We will definitely come back!"

Great quiet weekend away

  • 4 of 5
This was a great little place to stay for the weekend while we took the kids to Safari West. We loved seeing all the farm animals and Chewy the dog was a complete LOVE. The kids had a great time playing in the pool too.

The cottage itself: perfect for our family of four. The bed was more comfortable than my own bed (and I have a sleep number at home), the futon was good for the kids. I liked the french press coffee maker and having real dishes instead of the plastic cups most hotels give you.

Julie and DW were super sweet, as were their kids and grandkids who were around for the weekend.

Happy sightseer

  • 4 of 5
We had a very nice time at My Little Farm Country Cottage. We had origanally planned on a trip to CCI to see a graduation. Plans changed and we used the Cottage as a weekend getaway. We did alot of sightseeing from Vineyards to The Cali Coast. Julie was a wonderful host and I really enjoyed seeing the animals every morning and evening. Chewy was the best. We were able to kick back and just relax. The hot tub was perfect after a long day of driving and hiking amongst the redwwods. Thanks Julie for the great time.

Cozy cottage

  • 4 of 5
I was pleased with the cottage accommodations at My Little Farm. When I arrived, after a long drive, the owners even brought me a plate of lasagna dinner & glass of wine, since they had enough leftover from their own dinner. It was an unexpected, thoughtful gift & blessing for my weary bones. Thanks!

The bed & the linens were really cozy. I got to sleep in each day & enjoy not hustling & bustling like I normally do. There is a small fridge, microwave, toaster, French press & electric hot water kettle, plate, bowls, cutlery, glasses & mugs... Even a few pantry food items.

The cottage is a great jumping off point for hiking in the redwoods, wine tasting at local vineyards, driving over to the coast, etc. Santa Rosa is a pretty big city with lots of restaurants, shops, a mall with major department stores, etc.

I tried Johnny Garlic's (a Guy Fieri restaurant), good food, a little pricey. Crepevine was delicious, order-at-the-counter savory & dessert crepes, reasonably priced. Went to Heritage Public House by recommendation of the cottage owners' daughter, it was a fun place. I sat at the bar to enjoy my food & beer, chatting with the bartender. There was a big screen w/sports on & a room in the back with pool tables... My kinda place. Thanks for the recommendation!

The owners of the cottage were a nice couple & made me feel welcome to explore the property & hangout with the animals if I wanted to. I had an impasse with one of the roosters though... He didn't like me & chased me out of the barn area, crowing at me & trying to attack me anytime I came close to the barn :/ which was a disappointment since I love being around animals. The owners mentioned that they would have to get rid of the rooster. I would love to return to this place if my rooster nemesis were gone or reformed ;)

I also, unfortunately, got a full body rash from the jacuzzi. I went to urgent care to get it diagnosed & treated. Strange. When I told the owners, they didn't say it had happened to any previous visitors, so probably a freak thing.

If you like a really comfortable bed, with kind hosts, near wine country, redwoods, geysers & lots of other sightseeing, along w/getting to mingle at the farm with alpacas, dogs, cats, ducks, geese, guinea fowl, chickens, a potbelly pig, miniature horse, miniature donkey, this is the place for you... (As long as the unfriendly rooster is gone/reformed/locked up).

It was a good getaway weekend despite the rooster & rash :)

Charming and quiet!

We loved staying here! It was quiet and peaceful and seeing all the animals was a plus too :) The cottage was clean and had everything we needed. The owners were very accommodating and it was pretty close to everything we needed to get to. We would definitely stay there again.
