Overview

Sebastopol Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, Studio + Other (See Description),(Sleeps 2)

Perfectly located, you will find our 'Little Bird Cottage just the ideal place to stay. You can easily access major highways and roads to see all of Sonoma county and more,yet we are tucked away down a quiet private road. How perfect! and we just added AIR CONDITIONING:)

We are excited to welcome you to our owner built and designed ground level studio located on our acre and half property here in Sebastopol. We are near, but you won't even know we are there:)

We call it 'Little Bird Cottage', because we have an abundant number of Finch and Chicadees everywhere .The brand new complete kitchen has everything you need to prepare your own meals for longer stays if you like, but Sebastopol has a wonderful variety restaurants for you to choose from.

A beautiful hand-crafted 'Potterybarn' like bed, covered with high-end quality linens, pillows, and throws await you after a long day of traveling, sight seeing or visiting friends and family.

Out front of the studio you will find a full porch for enjoying that evening glass of vino you bought while wine tasting, or want to sun yourself a bit?, then relax in the Adirondeck chairs under the vintage Granvenstein apple tree.

From June through Sept. there is berry season;raspberries or boysenberries might show up on the porch to add to your morning breakfast ,yogurt or ice cream, and there is a lemon tree just outside your door.

It's a peaceful neighborhood, beautiful surroundings and close to everything you might want to see in the area. We can't wait to show you this cozy little spot.

About Kathy or Ken

Ken is an retired:) industrial sheet metal foreman, and Kathy is a retired administrator from a large HMO, and sewing instructor/interior designer, homemaker and lover of all arts/crafts. We are a hardworking family that enjoy the outdoors, small gardening projects, making and building things ourselves. We feel fortunate to be able to share this beautiful county with you.

Why Kathy or Ken chose Sebastopol

We have lived in Sebastopol for 18 years.

Raised our children here and wanted some property for them to roam around on, and Ken wanted to live near the coast for Salmon fishing.

What makes this cottage unique

Our property is very convenient to neighboring towns, the coast, the Redwoods, and beautiful vineyards.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We spent most of January here, and so glad we did. Little Bird Cottage was pleasing and homey, and just immaculate when we got here. Nice touches, fresh linens delivered weekly in a basket on the porch, with a surprise of wine, or sparkling water. The birds, quail and deer were also a bonus feature for us. We hope to pass this way again. Beautiful state and area you have here Kathy and Ken!

Perfecto !

  • 5 of 5

Me and my chikas stayed in the Little Bird Cottage for a few days while visiting Sonoma County during our spring break. The cottage was as lovely as shown in the pictures and even more Very clean, well equipped, cozy, cute…. Me and my gfriends couldn’t stop saying “awwwww” when we arrived there.

Kathy and Ken treated us like personal guests. I loved the small details like a bottle of wine, yummy cookies and muffins. The location is central for trips to Sonoma and Napa Valley. Also, Sebastopol has a lot to offer and is located for exploring all Sonoma County. The place is just perfect !!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review:) We know you made great use of your time, and really saw so many sights in the area, and were glad to come back to relax in the cottage after long days exploring. Also, thank you for the "Girlfriends Get Away" information flyers you left in the cottage. We were not away of that, and it will help our future guests. Please "fly back" to the nest soon-there's so much more to see and do:))

Perfect location for touring

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Little Bird Cottage. We appreciated the quiet and it being so accessible to both coast and country. We really liked the fact that the cottage is not overlooked at all and it being so well equipped. The small gifts of wine, lemons and soap were very welcome. Thank you Kathy and Ken for all the effort and thought you have put in to make Little Bird Cottage what it is.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review and we are always glad when we hear how convenient the cottage is to so much the area has to offer; who wants to spend all day in the car? Right? Coming in from New Zealand and then back to England had to be enough traveling for anyone, We hope you will have great memories to share with friends and family, please "fly back to the nest" one day.

Perfect place for a visit to Sonoma

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the Little Bird Cottage for a few days while visiting family in Sebastopol for Christmas. The cottage was exactly as represented in the photos online. Very pretty, clean, well equipped and cozy. The area immediately surrounding is lovely and quiet and the bed was so comfortable that we made a note of the mattress brand and model so we could get one for home. Seriously, it was perfect for a couple of Manhattanites to catch up on some good sleep! The Keurig coffee maker was great but we very much enjoyed heading out to Hard Core Espresso just down the road early morning for a Latte, a pastry and a game of Connect 4 :) Sebastopol has a lot to offer and is centrally located for exploring wine country as well as the coast. We will hope that the Little Bird Cottage is available the next time we head west to visit.

Owner's Response: Thank you both for such a lovely review. We were excited to hear you liked the new bed, and slept so well. We are always happy when our guests feel they could relax after a long day and that the cottage was warm and welcoming. Please "fly back to the nest" soon, and we hope New York winters are a bit milder this year for you.

PERFECT STAY!!!

My mom and I spent 4 nights in the Lovely "Little Bird Cottage". It was not just a NICE, COMFORTABLE, super CLEAN and BEAUTIFUL place to stay, it was like BEING HOME (well, EVEN BETTER!!). We felt really welcome. Kathy,

our nice, smiling and caring host, took the time to discuss with us on the first day and provided us a lot a good informations about the Valley (vineyards, restaurants, park, walk..). The hole experience was perfect: Sebastopol is a really great location to explore California vineyards !!! We loved Russian River Valley (don't miss Healdsburg, Dry creek Road and Francis Ford Coppola Winery), Sonoma Valley (we liked "The girl and the fig" restaurant in Sonoma) and Napa Valley (Robert Mondavi, Stirling…). We've also been to Bodega Bay (thanks to kathy), a authentic village by the sea were we had the best picnic: clam chowder and crab sandwich (and a glass of white wine!) looking at the breathtaking ocean view. We also really enjoyed our walk in the the spectacular " Armstrong Redwoods Natural Reserve" (giant and old trees, calm and not crowded at all). Sebastopol is a great little city, with a lot of services (whole food market, gas station…) and great coffee shops and restaurants (The Barlow : try a dinner at " Zazu kitchen and Farm" & a morning organic coffee or tea at "Taylor Maid Farms"). We feel so lucky to have discover and experience a stay at the Little Bird Cottage. For sure, we recommend this place 100% and we wish to bring the rest of the family someday (Paul & Gen )! Thank you so much Kathy and Ken!!!

Just Like Home!

  • 5 of 5

The second we walked thru the door Tuesday evening we knew as incredible as the VRBO pictures were .....being here at Little Bird Cottage was going to be perfect for us during our Sebastopol, Sonoma County Wine & Dine the Valley stay. Kathy and Ken had lights on and a bottle of wine to welcome us....what Amazing Hosts! With the Little Bird Cottage as our home base for the four days we were in the area we were a short drive to everything we wanted to see. Dining suggestions offered by Kathy & Ken were spot on.....Gypsy Cafe, HopMonk tavern and EL Coronel all fantastic. We would add that a short drive to Glen Ellen Oyster & Martini Bar was an incredible dining experience. Of course the Wineries & Vineyards in the area....all a stones throw away from Little Bird Cottage! The Redwood Forest ....Sonoma Canopy Tours was beyond thrilling and we can't wait to come back and Zipline thru the trees! Thanks Kathy & Ken.....we'll be back to see Little Bird Cottage again soon!

Perfect Get-Away!

  • of 5

"Little Bird Cottage' was as lovely as shown in the pictures and more! It was pristine and so tastefully decorated. Kathy and Ken were so nice and helpful, yet gave us all the privacy we needed. They treated us like personal guests - we loved the 'small' touches like a bottle of wine waiting for us, nice toiletries (anything you may need!), and importantly, a few Keurig cups plus cream in the fridge! The location is central for trips to Bodega Bay, Sonoma and Napa Valley. Sebastopol is such a great town that we found ourselves coming back every night for dinner, drinks, and/or dessert!
