Overview

Glen Ellen Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)

This quaint cottage is a wine country gem, with its bright and cheerful rooms inside and its plethora of olive trees and California Oak outdoors. Two bedrooms with double beds and closet space are sure to make you and your guests feel at home, no matter the duration of your stay.

Enjoy the wine country in Glen Ellen! It is the enchanted area of writer Jack London, wineries like Benziger, sophisticated restaurants, or just the bliss of relaxing with a local glass of wine, get the grill going, and prepare something from the incredible selection at Glen Ellen Market ...

This wine country cottage provides you with a cozy atmosphere. Cook up a big meal for friends in the fully-stocked kitchen that’s ready to go, and enjoy it at the breakfast nook with seating for four. If cooking on the grill is more your style, there is a BBQ out back and plenty of outdoor seating to choose from. Relax in the shade of the olive trees before curling up in front of the flat-screen TV in the front room! It's elegantly furnished, has two rooms with comfortable beds, a full-size kitchen, a bright and airy living room, and the great Sonoma Wine Country all around it.

There are numerous ancient olive trees on the property, roses in the front, a great picknick area out back and on its west side (great for sunsets), a heat lamp for evenings, direct access to Warm Springs Road for those who love riding their bikes here, and it is literally surrounded by tasting rooms within a 15 minute driving radius.

It is close to the Sonoma Valley Regional Park (great for running and hiking!), or the famous Jack London park with its Jack London Museum and peaceful gardens. Drive up to Morton's Warm Springs and dip into their pools, or drive over the scenic Warm Springs Road to the Kenwood area for more wine tasting than may fit into a single weekend - or just walk to Glen Ellen, with its variety of restaurants, a tasting room, the GE market, or the Jack London Lounge and Bar.

There is also lots of room for dogs to safely roam as its 0.6 acres are fully enclosed by a beautiful redwood fence that also provides additional privacy. It's adjacent to a large former 2 acre orchard with no building on it, adding to the green scenery and secluded feeling of the place.

Fully registered with the County of Sonoma - TOT Certificate Number 843N.

About Georg Gottschalk

I've always dreamed about a place in the wine country - and now I'd love to share it with you!

I live in San Francisco, and would be more then happy to help with recommendations in town, in the wine country, in Napa, or up and down the Pacific Coast as I love to explore this wonderful part of California. I'm a huge fan of the culture and life style in Sonoma. You'll love it too!

Georg Gottschalk purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Georg Gottschalk chose Glen Ellen

It's perfect: Lots of wine tasting, great weather, close to San Francisco - I live in Noe Valley, and it takes me just 1 hour and 15 minutes to drive up, observing the speed limit all the way (huge recommendation - do not speed!! They're always out there ...). The house is cozy, lots of room around it as I like to be outside most of the time, and while small inside it has everything you'd ever need.

Serenity and convenience

  • 5 of 5

This was an absolutely fabulous stay! The cottage was just as described and had everything we needed. The setting was private and quite - we loved sitting outside at night and looking up at the stars. In the daytime it was very peaceful. It was also very convenient to the great restaurants in town (be careful walking back after sunset as it can be quite dark - but that's the beauty of this lovely village) and a great little market. The owners were very responsive to questions and helpful about our stay. I got the sense that they love the area and know how to entertain! We would have loved to remain many more days just to relax on the property. Can't say enough about it- go see for yourselves!

Our home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We moved cross country to CA, and GE cottage was our home away from home. It has a big fenced yard and the house was so cozy. Owner was very responsive and helpful. He has made our transition so much easier. Thank you GE cottage!

so close and yet it seems so far away

  • 5 of 5

first off---its doggie heaven....lots of completely enclosed yard for them to play and explore. my 4 doxies braved the cold and explored every nook and crevasse they could find.

as for me, it was a wonnerful little cottage with everything that you would need. for one of the coldest winters they have had- we stayed warm thanks to the central heating. i closed off the front bdrm and used the back bdrm. the bed was comfy.

the kitchen was cozy and fully appointed. as i usually travel with my whole kitchen- i scaled down this time and found it not lacking in anything.

the only slight drawback is the poor basic cable options available in that area--mostly local channels and such. luckily, i brought along my mac and monitor and was able to use the great house WIFI to access netflix and hulu to watch movies/etc.

talk about instant hot water in the shower---IT WAS GREAT!!BEING SO COLD I DID NOT WANT TO BE STANDING UNDER A COLD SHOWER FOR MINUTES.

bring a flashlite and do what the locals do when walking at nite--have it on and swinging so oncoming traffic can see you--it is very dark--not like living in the big city. i walked to the local restaurants and found them serving great food.

especially liked the Glen Ellen Star(FARM TO TABLE)--great friendly service staff and fantastic food. the brussel sprouts broiled in a small cast iron skillet smothered with bacon bits---LOTS OF BACON BITS--was to die for. for breakfast i went to the Glen Ellen Garden restaurant. for great mexican food, i went to El Molino Central. try the niman farms pork tamales---real good and brought back fondled memories of my grandmas cooking in chihuahua.

the cottage is a great little place with a huge yard and very centrally located...i went on day trips to napa, sonoma, clearlake, petaluma, sabastopol and santa rosa--all easy drives. the glen ellen village market is a good place to find most food items--its bigger version in sonoma carries an even wider selection of local wines cheeses and local meats.

lastly and most importantly, Georg was always available via text to answer my questions--very knowledgeable about the surrounding areas

my doggies and i will be back---we will wait for the summer time when its above freezing....us angelenos are not used to cold!!!

Great little cottage in Glen Ellen

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed here with another couple and the little cabin was everything we were looking for and more. The cabin is a little small but it is very charming, clean, and had pretty much everything you could need. I wish it would have been a little warmer so we could have utilized the outdoor fireplace and patio/seating area. The cabin is a little hard to spot the first time but if you keep an eye out for green house number sign you can find it.

The cabin is an easy walk to downtown Glen Ellen where there are a couple of restaurants, wine tasting, a grocery store, and a couple of bars.

Comfy cozy cottage

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. Very clean and comfortable. Be careful of second bedroom sliding door gets off track and good thing I had an exit to outside.

We were given permission to enjoy the gorgeous garden of fresh lettuce which was an added treat for us.

Georg the owner provided excellent customer service.

I would definitely recommend this cottage to my friends
