SUNNY GARDEN COTTAGE, QUIET COUNTRY LANE, FOREST & VIEWS W/ PRIVATE HOT TUB

Sebastopol Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Charming studio cottage in peaceful, quiet setting

The garden cottage, set away from the main house, sits on a peaceful, sun drenched acre and a half of very secluded land, down a quiet country lane, with seasonal creeks just beyond your private deck. You will delight in waking to the sounds of birds chirping and will likely see our resident family of deer roaming the property. You will enjoy the backdrop of eucalyptus, redwood, oak and fir trees as you sit relaxing in your own private hot tub, while also enjoying the views of apple orchards and tree-lined vistas in the distance. The cottage comes equipped with all the amenities you will need for your comfort and enjoyment, including plush bathrobes, organic bathing products, luxurious bedding, a stocked kitchenette with fresh ground local organic coffee and teas, and your own welcome basket upon your arrival including freshly baked and other delectable treats to begin your vacation in style.

We're Janet and Matthew Joyce and we'll be your hosts during your stay. Since you'll be our only guests, you can be sure to have as much privacy or attention as you desire while you're with us. It's completely up to you.

We have been together for 30 years and it's been quite an incredible journey for us. We have been married for 22 of those years and we've raised two incredible daughters together. Before settling down, we spent years exploring the world, camping and backpacking, and meeting people from almost every continent. Parenting has been a remarkable and rewarding focal point of our lives for the past 20 years, and it has taken us from our beginnings in Santa Cruz, California where we both went to college, to Boulder, Colorado where we spent 12 wonderful years, and now back to our home in California where we feel truly blessed and settled.

Matthew is a consultant in the energy industry, working with corporations both large and small to make a difference in this world through promoting and implementing energy efficiency products and policies. He is also something of a Renascence man between his love of exploration, travel and literature, and his life-long passion for learning all things scientific, geographical and mechanical.

Janet is a Clinical Psychologist who has spent more than 20 years working with teenagers, families and couples. She is also an avid baker (which you will discover for yourself!), a passionate gardener, and a lover of science and literature.

We welcome you to our property and into our lives, where we will strive to make your stay with us truly memorable.

We've traveled widely. It's been an adventure exploring the world's diverse mix of climates, peoples, lifestyles, and cuisines. Over time we've zeroed in on where and what makes us feel at our very best: Mild weather that's great for year round gardening and outdoor activities; abundant fresh organic locally grown food and wines; open minded people of diverse backgrounds and interests; and a rural lifestyle close to big city amenities and the beach. When we put it all together no place on earth makes us feel as relaxed, as at peace, and yet as revitalized as we feel when we're spending time on the property. It's a magical spot and we're not alone in our thinking. Visitors ranging from family and friends to cottage guests and even delivery people recognize there is something special about the place. Come join us and we think you'll feel it too.

Two words seem to be repeated over and over when people explain how they feel when they visit here: Relaxed and Recharged. Maybe it's the secluded setting, nestled between the shady forest and the open sunny orchard, the tweets and chirping of the birds, or glimpsing the strolling comfort of the variety of wildlife who share this land with us. Perhaps it's the private hot tub next to the seasonal creek; a romantic moment beside the glowing warmth of the gas fireplace; or a second helping Janet's outrageous baked goods. Everyone has their own special moments. We fully expect you'll discover your own.

PEACEFUL, QUIET, YUMMY!

This rental is a spacious studio - with all amenities accounted for, and then some! The owners are friendly, respectful, and thoughtful. We were greeted with cookies fresh from the oven, instructions around the hot tub and fireplace, and then left to our own devices - just what we wanted!!!
The fridge was stocked with all that we could need, and more - healthy snacks, juice, fruit, nuts...The delicious, organic, locally roasted coffee ready to brew. Muffins were at our doorstep in the morning! Did I mention the cookies were amazing???! Baked by the owner herself!
The area is populated by homes on large parcels, and secluded by vegetation, but within easy distance to Sebastapol, restaurants, and wineries.
We ate at Backyard in Forestville - meh, Farmhouse - awesome, and Hopmonk - great lunch. We also had a sandwich at Jimtown that was amazing. Took a few loaves of Wildflour bread home...
Great winery visits at White Oak, De Varro, Mari Mar.

We are already looking forward to our next visit - and Janet's cookies!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Anna! It was wonderful meeting you and Aaron. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay in the cottage and that it was just what you were looking for. And I thank you for complimenting my baking. It's truly a pleasure for me to share. I'm sure our future guests will appreciate your reviews of some of the local restaurants and wineries as well. We would be delighted to have you back any time you're in the mood for another getaway in Sonoma County! P.S. Matthew loved the Scrimshaw.

The cottage is located down a private country lane in the hills just 10 minutes from downtown Sebastopol, making it convenient to all that Sonoma County has to offer. And trust us when we say, that's a lot!

Once you venture out and explore the surrounding area beyond the cottage you will delight in so many Sonoma County offerings, like the ones listed below:

There are more than 400 wineries in Sonoma County and virtually all of them are within a one hour drive of the cottage. There are 75 wineries and tasting rooms within 15 minutes of us alone, including some world class vineyards and some quaint, small tasting rooms as well.

The charming small towns of Sebastopol, Graton, Forestville, Occidential and Freestone are all less than 10 minutes away with restaurants and bakeries, coffee and tea houses, bookstores, specialty boutiques, spas, antique shops and art galleries.

There are 20 local farmers' markets in Sonoma County (several are open year round), ensuring that you can enjoy locally sourced organic produce and a wide variety of artisanal crafts every day of week, except Mondays.

Bodega Bay's fresh seafood, beaches and the dramatic scenery of the Sonoma Coastline are just over 20 minutes away via a scenic drive down highways 12 and 1. We've got redwoods growing right here on the property, but if you want to explore Armstrong Redwood State Preserve it's less than half an hour way across the Russian River in Guernville.

And for outdoor enthusiasts there are also: miles of beautiful hiking trails both along the magnificent coastline and in the hills and forests of Sonoma County, road and mountain bicycling, canoeing and kayaking, windsurfing, open ocean and/or fresh water fishing, and even hot air ballooning opportunities nearby.

Within Sonoma County you can also enjoy an array of cultural activities including, live Shakespeare plays, internationally recognized musical acts, symphonic performances, museums, shopping outlet stores and the Art Trails tour of local artists' studios and the Farm Trails tour of Sonoma County's artisnal producers, agriculture and family farms.

We will provide you with up to date calendars and lists of local events, schedules for Farmers' Markets, maps, restaurant menus and phone numbers for everything from local massage therapists and drivers for your wine tasting tours, to coupons and pricing at the day spa, wineries' tasting room hours, and even our own favorites and recommendations, all to enhance your enjoyment of our area.

Wine Country Garden Cottage is very well designed for everything from a super relaxed and low-key, private romantic get away to an action-packed adventure based vacation experience. And everything in between!

We're glad to tell you even more. Just give us a call!
