About Gayle Jenkins

To begin with, we'd like to introduce ourselves as a proud resident and entrepreneur in Sonoma. We are passionate about the beauty of the area, the kindness of the people, and the exquisite elements produced in Sonoma that make the quality of life here so wonderful. We bring that passion into the businesses I have created: Sonoma's Best, and the adjoining cottages, Sonoma's Best Guest Cottages. Both of these ventures have been labors of love, and I emphasize both of those words!

When we purchased the property, it was in a serious state of disrepair, but we saw huge potential. The store was a time-worn building built in 1913 that had operated for decades as the Von Sydow Deli. Both the store and the 4 cottages required extensive work, and we spent four years restoring them and creating a place of beauty, tranquility, and taste.

Gayle Jenkins purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Gayle Jenkins chose Sonoma

In February 2007, the cottages were selected by Sunset magazine as one of the top 10 most romantic getaways in the West, including Hawaii, and there's good reason why. Each cottage has a living room, bedroom and fully-equipped kitchen with every appliance necessary to enjoy creating delicacies with fresh local products -- your own gourmet experience at your fingertips. Each cottage sits behind its own Provence wall, has its own gas BBQ grill, 2 bicycles and shares the use of a lovely garden with a fountain and rose beds. And all of the cottages sit behind an electric gate, providing guests with total privacy and security.

What makes this cottage unique

Our convenient old-fashioned, charming landmark store, Sonoma's Best, which sits in the front of the cottage retreat property, offers a unique Sonoma experience. Our store provides food products for which the County of Sonoma is famous - artisanal cheeses, salads and soups, tamales, charcuterie, pastries and gelato - along with exquisite Blue Bottle Coffee.

Wine country winner

Sonoma's best guest cottages was the best stay on our trip to wine country. The cottage was beautifully decorated and conveniently located. The hosts are superb ,helpful with recommendations etc.
Having a gourmet shop right on the property is a big plus,as well as bikes to use at your convenience. We especially liked having an outdoor chimney fire to enjoy on the private patio space. I would highly recommend staying here.

Needs work

  • 2 of 5
While the cottages are cute and private and I enjoyed the location I was disappointed in their condition. I stayed there several years ago and they were in better condition then. On this stay the paint was chipping all around the baseboards and needs touched up, the bathroom door wouldn't close all the way and while appearing clean, the floors were filthy. After walking around barefoot my feet were totally black which made we wonder how well everything else was cleaned.

Owner's Response: We take our reviews very seriously and we thank you for taking the time to review our property.
At the time of this stay, October, it was the end of our busy season. Since October, we have painted the interior walls and baseboards of our cottages.
As for the cleanliness of our cottage, we can reassure future guests that we guarantee our cottages to be very clean. We employ a full-time housekeeping maid and our cottages are cleaned and vacuumed several times a week. How feet could get “totally black” or even slightly black is a mystery to us. We hope this does not discourage you from staying with us and having the opportunity to enjoy our unique Sonoma cottages. All the best…Gayle

Lovely cottage in a gorgeous setting

  • 5 of 5
Due to Hurricane Sandy delaying our flight, we unexpectedly found ourselves with a few days to explore Sonoma. Gayle graciously accommodated our last-minute booking and even bumped us up to a bigger cottage since the smallest one we asked for was already booked. Gayle and her staff were extremely friendly and helpful when we wanted to use the Weber grill one night to fire up some steaks. They even had a portable pantry full of spices ready for use! The cottage was very clean, well-furnished, and the kitchen was stocked with quality cookware. It was incredibly convenient to have their Sonoma's Best store right in the front so we could grab coffees and pastries in the morning. It seems to be a local favorite too. They also looked well stocked on artisanal grocery items.

Highly recommended in the area: Sebastiani Winery, Whole Foods Market, The Girl and the Fig restaurant, Russian Rivery Brewery, and Cakebread Cellars winery (in Napa).

Really nice cottage in beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the smallest of the four cottages, and it was more than large enough for the two of us and our small dog. The cottage was comfortable, but still "classy." The setting is beautiful and quiet. There was a fenced area associated with the cottage for our dog, which we really appreciated. The store and deli on the street in front of the cottages is well stocked with basics as well as nice lunches, breads and cheese. We would definitely go back.
