Diana and I are both retired and we love buying, decorating and renting great vacation properties.

Robert purchased this house in 2011

We love Sonoma wine country and believe it to be one of the best places to live, work and play. It is only 45 miles from San Francisco and 40 miles from the Sonoma coast and it has everything you need for a relaxing vacation.

The Perfect Winter Get-Away in Sonoma

  • Submitted: Feb 2, 2014

My husband, 3 adult sons, and I just returned from a wonderful week's stay at Lavender Hill Cottage in Sonoma. It was the perfect winter retreat for our family wishing to escape the cold Oregon weather in January. The location is, as described, very convenient to central Sonoma, the surrounding attractions, and Highways 12 & 80. We agree with previous comments about the benefits of using a GPS device to locate the property when first arriving. The home is located at the top of a hilly area that winds through a very narrow, windy neighborhood. The streets approaching the property on Hwy 12 in Sonoma are hard to see and read, especially at night.
We loved the charming cottage as soon as we walked in the front door. The home is very open and spacious, yet, very cozy and comfortable as presented in the website pictures. We really enjoyed cooking our breakfasts and dinners in the very convenient and well stocked kitchen. The bedrooms are spacious with very comfortable beds, and we enjoyed the flat screen TVs in each bedroom. Everyone especially enjoyed sitting on the comfy great room sofas with the gas fireplace on during the chilly evenings. It was a bit too cool for us to be out on the deck. The days were above average warm, but cooled off in the evenings.
We especially enjoyed visiting the Sonoma Plaza, The Sonoma Mission and General Vallejo's residence, The Jack London State Park, Healdsburg, and the Oxbow Public Market in Napa. I recommend that everyone at least visit the incredible Sonoma Market on West Napa St. in Sonoma. We now wish we'd bought more bottles of Meyer Lemon Olive Oil by Sonoma Harvest. Hard to believe, but we didn't make it to one vineyard. We did buy some local wine at the Sonoma Market, which has a huge selection of wines from local vineyards.
We've already recommended Lavender Hill Cottage to neighbors and friends in Salem. We hope to return to Lavender Hill next winter for another week. The owners, Bob and Diane, seem very helpful and accommodating. The property is clean and well-maintained. The double garage is an added bonus since it has a back door leading to a ground level entrance into the master bedroom. This is great for people with handicaps since the front door does have some stairs leading down to it. We had a visitor with Parkinson's Disease who was able to use the garage entrance into the house.
We hope you enjoy your stay at Lavender Hill Cottage as much as we did.

A Convenient, Comfortable Choice for Our Sonoma Getaway

Many thanks to Bob & Diana for the use of their lovely property, Lavender Hill Cottage! It was the perfect place for us to spend our long-weekend in Sonoma -- convenient to wineries, the town square, great restaurants, and the grocery store, too. Not only is the cottage cute-as-a-button on the inside, its floor plan is perfect for multiple couples. (There were three couples our group, and the cottage seemed quite spacious.) The kitchen and baths were nicely updated; the laundry, convenient; and the gas grill on the deck is a definite bonus. We loved the fact that the cottage had a king-sized bed in the master, too. (Sometimes it can be difficult to find a place that offers a mattress that large.)

Despite a few minor disappointments -- the cottage is situated within a maze of tight side-streets, but with a GPS, it isn't too hard to find; and unfortunately, we didn't spend any time on the large wrap-around deck because conversation/noise travels quite clearly between houses -- we still feel that Lavender Hill Cottage is a treasure and highly recommend it to our friends! We would love to stay there again, someday.

Wonderful stay at Lavender Hill

My husband, son and I just spent a lovely week at Lavender Hill. The property is located in a quiet, picturesque suburb of Sonoma. Every morning the birds and flowers, and occasional deer, greeted us as we looked off the wrap-around deck towards the hills of Jack London park. The house is convenient to wineries, farmer's markets, state parks, shopping....all the wonderful things that Sonoma County has to offer. My favorite spot in the house was the kitchen with the bay window looking over the yard and distant hills. Having a glass of wine while cooking and watching the view is heaven if you like to cook (and Bob and Diana have lots of great cookbooks!). In the evening, we enjoyed the comfy beds and utter peace and quiet of our hideaway. If you are looking for a wine-country experience without the crowds and noise and commercialism of Napa, then I highly recommend you come over to Sonoma County and enjoy this unique property.

Very Relaxing........

We just returned from 4 days at the Lavender Hill Cottage in Sonoma, it was everything we needed for a relaxing few day get-away with good friends. Home is as described by the owner on the VRBO listing, 3 bedrooms with very comfortable beds, we all got a good night's sleep in this home. The 2 full baths have been recently remodeled, so very clean and nice. A 2-car garage, altho it would be tricky to put 2 cars in there due to the angle), but plenty of parking in the driveway and off the street.

The home is in a hilly area, so not good for walking to town, but the drive isn't far and there are plenty of good eating places around, although we choose to make several of our meals at the home. The house is very private and quiet, with a nice gas fireplace that kept us cozy at night. The house i snicely decorated and they even had a Christmas tree and some holiday decorations up for the holiday season, which made it very welcoming. The owners are very accomodating and easy to work with. Also, there is a wine refrigerator that is partially stocked and of course there are plenty of good wineries around the area. We would definately stay here again when traveling to Sonoma, it was the perfect size for the 6 adults in our party.

The house is single story, altho there are 6-8 wooden steps from the driveway down to the front door of the home, so it's not wheelchair or handicapped-accessible from the front, in case that is a concern for you. There's also a great wrap-around porch that would be perfect to sit outside and enjoy the quietness and the woodsy atmosphere (the weather was too cold for us to do so on this trip). The house is clean, quiet and comfy, we give it an A+.
