Guestbook comments from the owner
"We had a great time! The house was perfect for us – well located and perfectly sized. The beds were comfy, the furnishings were just to our taste and the location was great – considering we like to walk to dinner where we live in Chicago, we felt very much at home walking to restaurants and Whole Paycheck nearby. I really enjoyed your renovation! I am a landlord – I buy old apartment buildings and renovate and update them for a living (then deal with tenants all the time). I am always knee deep in decisions about trim, tile, cabinets, light fixtures – etc – so it was great fun to enjoy your choices. Checking out your wainscoting in the bathrooms was fun as were the tile borders – all very clever and ‘period correct’ for the house style.

Thanks again for the opportunity to enjoy some California sunshine – yes, it was hot, we survived. Thank heavens, there isn’t much humidity!"

Being native to the Bay Area (and fellow wine lovers), we have been traveling to Sonoma County for many years, using VRBO/Homeaway, encountering some great experiences. It has been a long process, but we finally were able to purchase our first vacation home in the Diamond A area, Western Sonoma. Because we fell in love with Sonoma (again), we also wanted a 'city' property close to Plaza. Better yet, one with history, dating back to all that was happening in Sonoma in the late 19th Century. Now, we want to share it with other travelers seeking all that this area has offer, and hope that you will love it too!

What is not to love about Sonoma, especially right near the Plaza? There are unending things to do and see--wine tasting, eating experiences, historical site-seeing, outdoor adventure and shopping!

BEST RENTAL NEAR THE PLAZA HANDS DOWN!

  • 5 of 5
This was our 4th year of coming to Sonoma, near the Plaza. Without hesitation, I need to say that this property’s charm and décor outmatches the other homes that we have rented within walking distance to the Plaza. I understand it’s fairly new on the rental market, and our experience couldn’t have been more pleasant and enjoyable! The décor was very updated, as was the furniture and general character of the home—very Pottery Barn a la Sonoma! Within a block, there’s Whole Foods, Sonoma Market, a Cycle Shop, and Safeway (just to name a few spots). There’s even a Yoga studio (Community Yoga) on 5th, just a short walk. And that’s not even mentioning the Plaza—so many shops, wine tasting rooms and eateries—we especially liked Harvest Moon and Girl and the Fig (outside patio a must!). Anyway, we felt very comfortable and renting the property was very easy—they even have a keyless (wireless) entry system, providing a code that we choose for gaining access. Both Kathy and Allison were awesome to deal with, and we got our deposit returned very quickly. Can’t say enough about how wonderful a little vacation we had at the Vintage Cottage!

Perfect in so many ways!

  • 5 of 5
We were so fortunate to find this amazing cottage. I spent many days searching cottages in and around Sonoma. After researching the area and reading reviews, I felt good about my final selection. Upon arrival, I immediately knew I made a great choice! Everything was perfect. The cottage is in a great location and the house was beautifully decorated, and more importantly CLEAN and comfortable. It had everything we needed. Our only regret is that we didn't plan for a longer stay.....guess we will have to plan another trip ;)

WONDERFUL Sonoma Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5
Our stay in Sonoma was short, but sweet. Having rented the Victorian Cottage, however, made our family time, quality time! The house was clean, comfortable, well stocked and super close to the Whole Foods and downtown square. The owner was super responsive and friendly. Couldn't have had a better stay!

Great stay in Sonoma!

Visited Sonoma for a wedding and stayed in the house with several other wedding guests. The house worked out perfectly for us, it was steps to town and very clean and comfortable. We would love to come back!

Our Victorian-era Cottage is located a quick 2 blocks from the Plaza, the largest 'square' in California. Sonoma Plaza is surrounded by a plethora of historical buildings. The Plaza, which is a National Historic Landmark itself, hosts many community festivals, and serves as the town's focal point. With world-class restaurants, shops, wineries, farmer's markets, and parks, the Plaza is THE central tourist attraction of Sonoma.
