'LITTLE BIRD COTTAGE', PERFECTLY LOCATED.

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!

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.

Ken is an 'almost retired' sheetmetal worker, and I (Kathy) am a sewing instructor. Our son Johan is off to college soon, and our other son Mike is grown and married, but lives close. We are a hardworking family that enjoys the outdoors, small gardening projects & making & building things ourselves. We feel fortunate to be able to share this beautiful county with you.

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.

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

First of all, thank you very much for your hospitality and professionalism. We had a wonderful time at your lovely cottage. We loved all the details of the cottage and your surprises! You made our day after driving for 7hrs.
Normally, we love to explore the places while on traveling however, we loved to stay at your place, just relaxing on the hummock in the yard, listening to bird singing, looking at beautiful blue sky with red wine in hands. 3 nights were not enough to stay at the cottage. We needed to stay much longer to enjoy both winery and the cottage itself. I have been renting houses through vocation rental all over the world and I am sure that this cottage ranks top 5! It is neat and clean, quiet, peaceful, plenty of windows on every direction, high ceiling, privacy,,,name it. AND, excellent hospitality?

We really enjoyed your cottage very much, Kathy and Ken.
We would love to come back for a special occasion next time!

Thank you again and hope to see you sooooooon but soon!

Immaculate!

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!

We absolutely fell in love with the Little Bird Cottage during our weekend stay for a friend's wedding. Every detail of this charming little gem reveals the heartfelt hospitality of owners Kathy and Bruce. The bed is SO comfortable that not even the time change from the East Coast disturbed our sleep. The little kitchenette is perfectly outfitted for breakfasts or enjoying a midnight snack. As a tea lover, I particularly enjoyed being able to heat up the kettle for my nightly "cuppa." The bathroom amenities were pristine and very graciously outfitted with white fluffy towels. It is perfectly situated in Sebastopol without feeling too "in the middle of it all." While visiting, check out the Armstrong Redwoods, eat at Peter Lowells, and of course, sample some of the local wines!
Owner's Response: Thank you both so much, we know you did not have much time to see the area due to the wedding, but of course, you can always come back for a longer stay at Little Bird Cottage. It means a great deal to us to get such a detailed and thoughtful review, we know it also helps our future guests when you share specifics like Armstrong Grove or a favorite winery. Again thank you for taking the time. Come back to the nest:))

Owner's Response: Merci Beaucoup! to you both for writing such a nice review, even with the language differences, you work so hard to come across clearly and take such care to explain your experience here at Little Bird Cottage.
Your effort is so appreciated, and thank you for the lovely orchid plant.

From concept through the details Little Bird is perfect.
My husband and I were lucky enough to stay at this little jewel for 8 lovely days.
Kathy is the most charming hostess. After a very brief but thorough introduction to Little Bird and the area she quietly slipped away - but returned unobtusively leaving little gifts on the front porch every few days:) Unfortunately we didn't have the chance to meet Ken.
The cottage is exactly as represented - immaculate and oh so comfy. Welcome gifts, fluffy robes and a bed so comfortable you don't want to get out of it...but so much awaits.
Over morning coffee you can watch quail, jays, finch, chickadees and even wild turkeys wondering around the property (the later in search of Kathy’s delicious raspberries apparently).
Beyond being fun to explore, Sebastopol is perfectly located for exploring neighbouring communities. It is an easy drive to Healdsburg (try Willy’s for lunch) and Sonoma (a visit to the mission is worthwhile). Magnificent vineyards too numerous to mention are within easy driving distance. Try Rochioli for a picnic and pick up a bottle of their fantastic Sauvignon Blanc – Kathy even provides a very well equipped picnic basket! A day trip to Bodega Bay for a beach walk followed by a stop in Guernville at the Stumptown Brewery makes for a fun outing. Don’t miss the Sebastopol farmers market on Sunday – it’s like stepping back in time.
On your return to the cottage you can sit by the fountain in the late afternoon sun and ponder your options for the evening – to stay home and munch on the wonderful cheeses, pate and fruits you picked up at Whole Foods, to cook dinner in your own kitchen or to head out to one of the many area restaurants. Try El Coronel if you like Mexican or Hopmonk for pub style eats and atmosphere.
We travelled for 9 days after leaving the cottage and on a regular basis (probably daily) one or the other of us would refer wistfully to Little Bird.
Thank you Kathy & Ken – we sincerely hope to return.

Owner's Response: Wow, wow, wow! Thank you both! There should be a review for a review;) Your thoughtfulness in the details not only helps us, but so many of our future quests. It's really like "paying it forward". You went out of your way to repost this beautiful review as well, even after an email address snafu! Shannon and Nick, please "fly back to the nest"
soon, and with heartfelt appreciation for your time and business; Kathy and Ken
