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!
