Kenwood Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Kenwood Casita:1 Bedroom (Sleeps 2) 1 Bath in the Sonoma Valley

The “ Kenwood Casita” is in the town of Kenwood on California State Highway 12; 20 minutes east of the City of Santa Rosa and 15 minutes west of the City of Sonoma in the Sonoma Valley called by author Jack London the “Valley of the Moon”.

It is a detached 640 sq. ft. guest unit with 1 bedroom (sleeps -2), 1 bath, full kitchen, HVAC, seasonally heated pool, outdoor patio with BBQ and covered parking. RV or boat parking is available but no hook-ups are available.

A quiet, rural and private 2.50 acre parcel in the Sonoma Valley with views of the surrounding Mayacamas Mountains. The property has a small vineyard planted to Montepulciano grapes, over 50 fruit trees and a large herb and vegetable garden. Seasonal fruits, vegetables and herbs are available upon request during your stay. The property has a solar heated seasonal pool and poolside lounge chairs available for your use.

Sonoma County is rated one of the top 10 'vinous' travel destinations in the world by Wine Enthusiast Magazine, February 2014. As expected,wineries abound in the area offering public tours and tastings; some wineries offer appointment only tours and tastings and many wineries offer wines that only can be purchased at the winery. Frequently on a summer weekend evening music can drift quietly over the area from activities at either Chateau St Jean Winery or Landmark Winery which always ends by 10 PM.

The Kenwood Casita is within easy walking, cycling, or driving distances to numerous wineries, restaurants and Annandale, Sugarloaf and Mt. Hood parks.

Vacationer’s can take day trips by automobile to the very diverse areas of Sonoma County and surrounding Counties. Traveling east on Hwy 12 from Kenwood you will find numerous wineries, award winning restaurants and the City of Sonoma with shopping on their historic town square.

Heading north on Hwy 101 takes you to the City of Healdsburg, the Alexander and Russian River wine growing regions and wineries. Canoeing down the Russian River is a summer time favorite from Healdsburg to Guerneville. The Healdsburg Square also offers fine dining, eclectic shopping and wine tasting shops.

To the west and southwest of Petaluma you will find wineries, artisan cheese makers and gourmet olive oil producers offering their unique products. A return trip from the coast heading north on Highway 1 will find numerous waterfront restaurants serving local grown oysters, other seafood and of course libations

Your social interchange with the owners John and Pamela is as expansive or limited as you wish.

If you are looking for a place to relax, read or pitch horseshoes in a quiet country setting; hike, bike, canoe or golf; take in fine dining, sip the finest wines offered in the Sonoma Valley or Sonoma County the Kenwood Casita and your hosts John and Pamela are there to make your stay as enjoyable as possible

Idyllic stay at the Kenwood Casita!

  • 5 of 5
We had such a lovely stay at this property & would readily book here again. The location couldn't be better. The casita is right along highway 12, neighbor to some of our favorite Sonoma Valley wineries. It is also just down the road from some great hiking trails. The house itself is very comfortable with every amenity we might have wanted, including access to fresh produce straight from the owners' garden. The owners were both wonderful, very friendly & helpful. If you get the chance to book here, do it! You won't regret it.

Better than the Pictures

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful quiet location, the Casitia was wonderfully clean and nicely decorated with thought. The owners were next door but very respectful of my privacy, the grounds are beautifully maintained and the flowers and wildlife are amazing. I highly recommend this property for a beautiful relaxing time.

Perfect Get Away

  • 5 of 5
The owners met us when we arrived and showed us around the property. The casita was clean, stylish, fully equipped and beautiful. The grounds surrounding the casita and the main house are absolutely beautifully landscaped. The property is very quiet and peaceful. Flowers, vegetable gardens, all types of birds and a heated pool grace the backyard. It was beyond what we imagined and the owners could not have been more gracious and wonderful. We will definitely be back and will recommend this property to all of our friends. You will not be disappointed if you choose this casita to rent.

Gracious Hosts and Lovely Accommodations

  • 5 of 5
John and Pamela are the perfect hosts in sharing their warm and generous hospitality. They were attentive without being intrusive. The casita is romantic and John and Pamela have given much attention to the little detailsthat make this casita a perfect getaway. The outdoor areas offer an endless, beautiful landscape, truly eye candy. The interior is decorated like something out of a magazine. We were close to restaurants, wineries and all sorts of wonderful activities the area offers. We're already looking forward to our next visit to the wine country and, yes, we will be lodging at Kenwood Casita.

Wonderfully relaxing!

  • 5 of 5
The Casita was outstanding. It far exceeded our expectations. It is bright and spacious and beautifully decorated all while being right in the heart of wine country. John and Pamela were wonderful hosts. They provided everything we could have needed and immediately made us feel at home. They even shared the vegetable garden with us one night! We enjoyed their yard which included constant hummingbird activity. We hated to leave this wonderful place and hope to revisit in the future. The Casita will be our first choice! We also look forward to some Graziano wine on our next trip. Thanks again, John and Pamela.
