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.

About helen Tanner

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

Why helen Tanner chose Sonoma

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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!!

Great placw to stay in Sonoma

  • 5 of 5
We have just enjoyed three nights at your beautiful cottage. Everything about it was perfect. It is so beautifully decorated and cozy, the perfect place to wind down and enjoy the local wines and food. Location was good for visiting the Sonoma and Napa area. I hope we have the opportunity to return some time in the future. Thanks Helen for sharing your home!

A Sweet Setting

  • 5 of 5
Enjoyed ourselves tremendously at this relaxing, quaint home, within walking distance to the town of Sonoma. As others have indicated, this home is well-equipped, clean, and very comfortable. The owners provided a nice touch with fresh flowers, chocolates by the beds, and wine awaiting our arrival. The owners are also accommodating and responsive. The back yard garden was spectacular. This home met our high expectations for a relaxing week of "living" in Sonoma.

We had a wonderful experience staying at Helen's Hideaway. Close enough to the square, with easy access. The cottage was clean, had all the ammenities we needed and had laundry. Helen was very professional and made the experience very easy! I would stay here again in an instant! Now I just need to find the time to head back to wine country! Thanks for a great time!

Lovely cottage near Sonoma Square

  • 5 of 5
Helen's hideaway was just what this family needed. We spent 5 days touring the areas wineries and breweries. When we came back from a day of fun the cottage was a perfect place to hang out. We found the cottage just as described by Helen and fellow travelers and we thoroughly enjoyed staying there. We were able to barbeque, listen to music throughout the house, and relax. I would recommend this property to my family and friends wanting to stay in the area. Many great restaurants very close by such as Girl and the Fig as well as wineries. All within .5 to 1 mile away max.

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.
