Overview

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

Every comfort was considered, and then included!

  • 5 of 5

The Casita is filled with thoughtful touches---AND it is gracious, spacious, and tasteful. It is a true home away from home. We stayed for 10 nights and felt warmly welcomed by the on-site owners who managed to be both helpful and discreet. The many windows of the Casita are expansive, allowing the outdoors in. Every morning, we raised the one-touch blinds onto views of the sparkling pool, the table and chairs under the towering trees, an inviting vineyard, and the green mountains beyond. The full kitchen is outfitted to the nines, with beautiful matching dinnerware, and a great contingent of baking and cooking ware. Truly, one of the best assortment of pans that we've seen! We most appreciated that the Casita is truly a house, and not merely an expanded studio unit as some we've rented. The living room is a welcome place to settle in; the bedroom is airy and light; the bathroom is well-lit and clean as a new nickel! Our 10-day stay was still too short to fit in all the fun things to do in the area---wine tasting, food pairings, winery tours, restaurants, long hikes in Sugarloaf, the gardens of Quarryhill, not to mention nearby Sonoma....all topped of with day's end at the Casita. We chose it for its rural setting and beauty; because it was so inviting, we spent far more time at the Casita than we expected to!

Highlight of our trip

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casita in Kenwood for 5 nights in September. The cottages was lovely and well equipped. Hosts John and Pamela were really welcoming and gave us lots of local recommendations. They have an amazing vegetable garden which we enjoyed exploring and using to cook with. The location is perfect for exploring Sonoma County as well as popping over to Napa Valley. There are many vineyards and restaurants that you can walk to from Casita as well. Overall we really enjoyed our time in Sonoma Valley and staying at Casita.

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.
