EXPERIENCE THE SOUNDS OF BIRDS IN THE TREES, A COZY LIGHT FILLED STUDIO

Artfully designed studio with private porch and deck facing the sunrise.

Here is the perfect cottage for couples, individuals, writers, artists, or for those visiting family. There are many attractions that Sebastopol and the surrounding area have to offer.

Enjoy the morning on the porch sipping a hot drink from a handcrafted mug and listening to the birds singing in the trees. Outdoor kitchenette on porch. Organic seasonal fresh fruit, coffee, and tea are provided, and we have a library of books you are welcome to explore.

We carefully prepared our recently built studio for your pleasure and comfort. The windows open to a view of a living sculpture garden of succulents, grasses, bamboo, lavender and eucalyptus trees. There is a comfortable queen-sized bed. The high beamed ceiling adds a sense of spaciousness to the light bright cottage. The flooring is made of bamboo.

Professional married couple live on the property. They enjoy gardening, designing outdoor garden sculptures, hiking, good food, biking and reading.

The cottage was recently designed and built with garden views; a light and bright space, with artistic touches throughout.

See the sunrise through the Eucalyptus trees from our deck. We are minutes from downtown Sebastopol, Bodega Bay and Sonoma County beaches, as well as from Armstrong Woods and the Russian River area.

HEAVEN ON EARTH!

  • 5 of 5
I spent 17 days here in this little corner of paradise while searching for permanent accommodation in the area. The amenities are first class, with everything designed to provide guests with a stress-free, relaxing break. Karen and Doc are fabulous hosts; there if you ever need anything, but at the same time totally unobtrusive. They are a font of information and can steer you in the right direction for anything you wish to do, be it yoga, grocery shopping or wine tasting! And no review of Blue Skies would be complete without mention of (Prince) Harry and Grey, the resident pussycats and Dixie, the most adorable little dog you could ever hope to meet! A wonderful family, a wonderful setting - if you're in the area, this is the place for you :)) Oh, and Karen found me permanent accommodation - the icing on the cake!

BLUE SKY COTTAGE PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
What a charming place, quiet, cozy, and comfortable. I appreciated the good framed art and fabulously comfortable bed inside and the garden setting outside, especially the deck and chair for late afternoon reading in the sun. The cottage is close to town and to Bodega Bay where glittering beaches and whale watching await. Karen and Doc accommodated my schedule and were kind. I loved the Sebastopol area and will definitely be back for more of their hospitality.

WONDERFUL PRIVATE COTTAGE AND SETTING

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here multiple nights in October and November 2013 visiting a new grandson. The property is spotless and well appointed. Easy distance from Sebastopol for restaurants and shopping. Works well for a single or couple (my husband stayed with me on weekends) I will definitely stay again.

LOVELY SURPRISE

  • 5 of 5
Well, I will be back; the best recommendation. I could not find a place to stay anywhere in Sonoma county in September. I checked VBRO and miraculously found this little gem and it just happened to be available the two nights I needed it. Small cozy room with fabulous bed wonderful hosts that are present and invisible at the same time. The bath is in a separate private bath house a few steps away. The porch and view was so welcoming in the morning and the evening. I felt comfortable, secure, and very pleased. I don't think I will even look for a motel room again. Thank you Karen and Doc for making everything so easy. I will spread the word.

HOSPITALITY AND HUMANITY

  • 5 of 5
Karen and Doc went out of their way to make me feel comfortable in their cottage as well as my new home town. Their cottage, deck, garden, and full freestanding bath would have been enough, but they also brought flowers, fresh fruit and veggies from their gardens, friends to meet me, made breakfast for me, invited me to a party during my stay, and helped me get a great lease on a house! Oh- and I was using the outdoor space for a kitchen and Karen brought over spare ware. This is a rental with lots to offer in the human department. They are wonderful people with heart and creativity.

A LOVELY RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
I spent 10 days in the Blue Skies cottage while I was waiting for my new house to be ready. It was a beautiful spot in the country minutes from Sebastopol. The bed was very comfortable and all the amenities were there, including fridge and microwave. The bathroom across the way reminded me of the Mendocino Hotel cottages. The host and hostess are wonderful people who made my stay feel like my home away from home. I loved the country setting, the gardens and the sculptures! Even though I now live in the area, I want to go back and just get away from it all.
