We supply an assortment of high quality bath products including shampoo, conditioners, shower gels, bubble bath, and big fluffy white bathsheets, bathtowels and washclothes and there is a linen closet with abundance of more if needed.

The bedrooms are very private from each other and each one has a special feature one with sliders that go out to the patio and a lovely fountain and the other with a sitting room with nice down sofa and desk for computer etc. also a printer scanner fax copy machine and of course WIFI. Each bedroom has flat screen HD LED TV's and all cable channels are available. If there is another couple or a child who wants to stay the sofa in the living room is not your normal sofa it is a sofa bed that is very comfy with all down bedding and a feather topper. It is a very high end Restoration Hardware sofa .

.

Interior Walls are all soft sage colors with bright art and the flooring is Italian tile and oak . There are nice oriental rugs covering the floors in bright reds and sages. We have a library and DVD's for your use. There is a large flat screen HD TV in living room with surround sound system plus additional speakers on the patio. There are IPOD docking systems also.

Our patio and garden area are a standout and have been called by some a little slice of heaven'. There are walkways meanderng thru the large well manicured flower filled yard. Also a grove of redwoods and bamboo trees and Japanese Maples a large fig tree, a Meyer lemon tree and in summer a plum tree ..There is always an herb garden in summer months for your use. The patio itself has the same Italian tile that the house has. and it has a nice big firepit surrounded by large Adirondack chairs, A patio set with four comfy chairs and an umbrella for outdoor dining as well as a 48' Vermont Castings gas grill. There is also a flagstone patio with another sitting area in the sunshine it is wonderful on those days you want to just enjoy the sun the flowers and the quiet.. except for the birds and the squirrels. The yard is filled with 400 yr old Valley Oak trees and offers a Wonderful 'ZEN' like setting. These words are how most of my guests have described the yard and most say they don't want to leave even for dinner as they want to spend time in the garden and patio. I have flowers in the yard year-round as gardening is my hobby so it is always easy for me to make it beautiful as I love it. The patio and garden area is surrounded by little white mini lights in the evening for a magical feel .

This cottage is for people used to only the best. I have hosted two PGA Golf PRO's while they played the Charles Scwhab Cup Champions tournament. They both wrote nice reviews and loved to my attention to detail. Ask me who they are?

Evening times you can hear the sound of crickets from the nearby Sonoma Creek and either that or the waterfall will lull you to sleep...I am a designer/developer in Lake Tahoe and put my experience to work in making this a perfect wine country getaway and my husband and I use this as our own vacation home so it is in immaculate condition for each guest.

READ the reviews and you will see how very special this cottage is.

We are both in the real estate business David full time realtor Helen a developer/designer in Tahoe. We have been in this business most all of our lives and own and manage other properties ..We know what we expect when we travel and we try to do the same with the first class amenities we provide and the immaculate condition we have the cottage in for each guest..

helen Tanner purchased this cottage in 2005

We loved vacationing in the wine country and were tired of not having our own patio and comfy beds and didn't like being in sterile hotel rooms we wanted our own little cottage to have longer visits and be able to barbecue with a private and serene setting. We loved the restaurants and wineries and the Farmers Market the whole area is just heaven. We live in Lake Tahoe so needed an escape from the cold snowy winters and need a place that we will be able to golf year round. Now we love the spring, summer and fall in the winecountry the vineyards are so pretty year-round.

We enjoy the quiet neigbhorhood the accessablilty of being so close to the Sonoma Market and the Whole Foods stores each within a half mile from the cottage. We also like being near the quiet Sonoma Creek area where we listen to the sounds of crickets in the evenings and we are near the walking trail that meanders thru the back of the town plaza and goes thru a few vineyards and the park..It is a wonderful walk.. We are dog lovers and love taking our dog with us on our walks..

We love our little cottage and you will find that it shows and it has a wamr and happy feeling the min you walk thru the door!! We have some guests who have returned to visit our cottage now as many as five times..

Come and stay and see for yourself!!

From the fresh flowers in the house, the wine you left for us, the fresh coffee to the absolutely beautiful English garden out back, our stay in your home was absolutely the best. We loved that we were close enough to walk to the Square and close to all of the fabulous wineries. We also took the time to see Broadway under the Stars at Jack London State Park which was incredible. We loved the quiet neighborhood and enjoyed some quiet time just reading in the back yard. Thank you for sharing your lovely home.

WONDERFUL 40TH BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION

  • 5 of 5
Having stayed last year at Helen's lovely cottage, my husband and I thought it the perfect place to bring our son and daughter-in-law to celebrate his 40th birthday. We had beautiful memories of the equiste furnishings, the attention to detail ancipataing all our needs and the lush, yet cozy garden. We couldn't imagine how much more we would enjoy it this year with our children sharing the cottage. Although we told them how beautiful the cottage was, they were in awe when they acutually saw ALL the well-appointed amenities. The separate bedroom suites gave us all any needed privacy. We were all able to travel from CT with only carry-ons due to the convenience of having a washer and dryer right there, not to mention all laundry products!! My husband Richard, who is a retired chef, had a ball cooking on the Pro Wolf 6 burner stove. The cottage is situated conveniently to all the wineries, too. What a memorable time for all of us. Thank you, Helen, for sharing your precious gem.

WONDERFUL "HIDEAWAY"

wonderful "hideaway"
  • 5 of 5
My husband, sister and her husband and I had a fabulous 3 nights at Helen's. We had planned a small gathering of cousins for a outdoor dinner at Helen's our first night which was fabulous. The yard is beautiful and set up for quiet and was great for a small reunion. The inside is thoughtfully equipped in kitchen (bottle of wine was waiting for us) as well as extremely inviting living space as well as extremely comfortable bedrooms (and beds). We were there for a wedding and some R&R--couldn't have found a better place. Highly recommend it and thank you Helen for thinking of the needs of those staying in your house. Would definitely stay there again if in the area.

A SECRET PIECE OF PARADISE!

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from an idyllic week with another couple after staying at this wonderful property. The reviews seemed too goo to be fully true, but I can assure you they are. The layout of the home allows for privacy, but the living/dining areas, and most especially the outdoors are simply perfect for long evenings enjoying some wonderful wine with friends/family. As an English woman and a devout gardener, I can tell you this place reminded me of home, I just loved it. All decor, linens and even shampoo, bath gel etc are of the highest quality. It really felt like a luxury vacation, and I have returned home relaxed. We will most certainly return for more of the same!
