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.

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!

Ken is a sheet metal worker, and Kathy is a retired administrator from a large HMO, sewing instructor/interior designer, homemaker and loves crafts of all kinds. Our youngest son is off in college, and our oldest son is grown and married, and we have our first little grandbaby girl:). We are a hardworking family that enjoys the outdoors, small gardening projects, making and 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.

What a perfect little cottage. What a grand location to explore Northern California. Spud Point Crab Company's crab sandwich on Bodega Bay was great BUT on Saturday they do crab cakes which are supposed to be even better. the Barlow in Sebastopol is another must. They have wine tasting, beer tastings, a very good bakery, and Zazu's Farm restaurant. At Zazu's have the appetizer - Dates wrapped in Bacon. and for desert the over the top - donut with maple glaze and bacon. Napa, Sonoma , and Mendocino are all within reach. Try Domaine Chandon, Castello di Amoroso, Navarro, Domaine Caneros, Korbel, Coppola's. Suggest you make reservations for Coppola's tour in advance. Kathy and Ken are outstanding. They are genuinly warm and friendly. They are very customer satisfaction oriented. We would say they go above and beyond to make sure your visit is memorable. One week was not enough!

Owner's Response: Thank you to our new Arizona friends. Your detailed and informative reviews will be very appreciated by our future guests. Getting away from the summer heat in AZ is so needed ,and where better to fly to than Little Bird Cottage. Please come back when the temps start to rise-there's more to see and do, and always more wine to sample:)))Thank you so much!

A Perfect Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5
We spent four lovely days at the Little Bird Cottage in Sebastopol. What a delight! The cottage is incredibly neat, clean, comfortable and is located in a quiet, serene area. Kathy and Ken, the perfect hosts are so gracious with their input and attention to detail - with amazing brownies and a bottle of wine (thank you!) to greet you upon arrival. We come to the area three to four times a year and definitely look forward to staying here again! Again - many thanks. Jeff and Sue

Perfect Cottage... Perfect owners!!!!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in a romantic and comfortable Cottage. The cottage was pristine and all of the special touches Kathy provided were very thoughtful. We found Kathy to be an excellent and very responsive host, and her willingness to provide information and answer questions from first time Napa Valley visitors was welcome and very helpful. We had a wonderful stay and our accommodations were a big part of that. Our experience far exceeded what we could have expected from a hotel, and we will certainly stay with Kathy and Ken on our next visit to Napa. (which we are already planning!)

Missing My California Home!

  • 5 of 5
We recently returned to Michigan after spending a wonderful week in Northern CA. We miss our little home away from home and can't stop talking about how special the cottage was. Kathy and Ken were marvelous "landlords", everything about the cottage was perfect. Down a quiet road, we felt like we were in the country, yet just 5 minutes from Sebastopol's downtown. Since my husband was participating in a hockey tournament we spent a lot of time in Santa Rosa, but made time to do some sightseeing, including:
Ride along the coastline and seeing sea lions at the mouth of the Russian River.
St. Francis Winery in Kenwood,
Armstrong Redwood Preserve,
Getting a crab Sandwich at the famous Spud's Crab Co in Bodega Bay,
Day trip by ferry to San Francisco

So much more we could write. Would have liked to spend more down time enjoying the cottage. We were always happy to be "home" every night.
Kathy has put so many homey touches into Little Bird cottage that we can't possibly mention them all here. Anything you need is there, and then some. There was a bottle of wine and Snickerdoodles to welcome us, and little surprises during the week, like Kathy's homemade chocolate raspberry sauce which was divine over our ice cream.

If we go back to that area we would rent the cottage in a heartbeat. Kathy and Ken have set the bar very high.

A Special Place

  • 5 of 5
From the first email reply from Kathy I had a good vibe about Little Bird Cottage. The personal welcome letter sealed it for me. I knew this would be a "special place" with hosts that took pride in their rental. Boy was I right! The personal touches once we arrived sent our week long journey off on the right foot. The cottage had absolutely everything we needed and more! We loved feeling connected to the neighboring areas, yet off in our own little world here.

Some of our favorite experiences this week: *The chowder at Spud Point Crab Company (even tastier when you take it to go and picnic out at Bodega Head.)
*Exploring Goat Rock Beach (unlike anything we have ever seen).
*Favorite Wineries: DeLoach, Dutcher Crossing, Gloria Ferrer, Artesa, and Jacuzzi.
*Outstanding and most memorable winery: Repris - It's like a best kept secret. Amazing experience.
*The air conditioning; We were honored to be the first. It was well loved.
*And, those black out shades were amazing!

Thank you for making our 17th wedding anniversary stay so memorable. Little Bird is a special place and we were honored to have been a guest here.
