Glen Ellen Cottage Rental Photos and Description
2 private 1 bedroom cottages on 4 acres
With spectacular views of Sonoma Valley, this cozy getaway is nestled in its own canyon. Set in a pristine pine grove is a custom made, 45 foot lap pool with an 'infinity edge.' Originally a barn, the 700-square foot lower cottage, completely updated, reportedly contains ceiling trusses taken from the original French Laundry restaurant in Berkeley, California. It has a new kitchen, hardwood floors, a super clean all white bath, TV, satellite connection, DVD and stereo, wireless internet connection.
The upper, one bedroom cottage, located approximately 150 feet from the lower cottage, is slightly larger with its own parking and south side deck. This cottage is some 900-square foot and has comfortable charm . Originally built in the 1960s, the cottage has been updated with modern appliances, (full kitchen), satellite TV, DVD, Central heat & A/C, wireless internet access (medium speed), iron/ironing board. There is a California king-sized bed.
Access this secluded property is via 1000 foot driveway, the first half of which is shared with a neighbor. The cottage is tucked next to The Bouverie, a 523 acre wildlife preserve with no public access. Plenty of wildlife!

Guestbook comments from the owner
Our experience was truly incredible and beyond our expectations, I highly recommend Sonoma Cottages! We planned a trip to the area for a few days with another couple and were searching for last minute hotel rooms, they were all very expensive and didn't look so good when my boyfriend found these cottages on Air B&B. I was skeptical at first but since it was so last minute we decided to go for it and it was such a good idea! Both cottages are incredibly comfortable with amazing views and great amenities (fully equipped kitchens, beautiful and clean bathrooms, TV+cable and DVD, dining table, balcony and so much more). I HIGHLY recommend this place for anyone searching for high-end luxury stay while enjoying some quite time and privacy. We had exclusive access to the pool and Jacuzzi (it was too cold to use the pool but sitting in the hot Jacuzzi on a chilly evening after drinking wine all day while looking at the stars above and enjoying the peaceful silence around you was just perfect). Only down-side I can think of is that it's half an hour up in the hills between Napa and Sonoma so driving in/out in the dark was something we avoided. For us this was wonderful and we didn't mind because we bought food at the local market in Sonoma and cooked dinner and enjoyed the wine we bought during the day (there is a BBQ and every kitchen utensil needed to prepare a great meal). The view is just breathtaking and it was so convenient to our needs and made our wine-country experience so much better (on the last day we actually wanted to spend more time back at the cottages and relax than go to another tasting!). We are already planning our return next year and have recommended this place to all of our friends.
