Sonoma Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Best location in the Northern California Wine Country, just a short walk or ride down the Bike Trail to Sonoma's historic town square. Fully furnished and equipped. High speed internet, flat panel TV, Netflix

Sonoma Valley is blessed with award winning wineries & vineyards, historic sites, restaurants, open air markets, museums, galleries, boutiques, and wonderful opportunities for hiking & biking.

Start your day with a short walk to one of our various award-winning bakeries, pick up a newspaper, and return to the house to enjoy your treats on the sunny deck overlooking the colorful garden. Or, walk to the numerous unique restaurants serving full breakfasts. Take a one block stroll for a morning spa treatment.

Spend the rest of the morning shopping on the plaza, visiting the celebrated Sonoma Valley Museum of Art, take an art class at the community center, bicycle through the vineyards on the bike path, shop at the fresh organic vegetable stands, enjoy cheese tastings at the two cheese factories, sit in the Plaza and watch the ducks, gather gourmet delights from the multiple specialty shops, visit the winery tasting rooms to pick the perfect afternoon wine choice to go with your picnic lunch, and it is all within a two-block radius of our house.

The evenings in Sonoma are filled with exquisite dining, jazz, and dancing in Plaza restaurants. Choose from Italian, Thai, California Cuisine, Mexican, Indian, Irish Pub, and French restaurants just a walk away. Catch live theater or walk over to the Sebastiani theater for an art movie. You do not even need your car once you are settled in. The cottage has one bedroom as well as a pull out in the living room and can accommodate up to four people. It has a fully-equipped kitchen and several amenities to make your stay a memorable one.

A complimentary bottle of wine will be waiting for you upon your arrival. Relax and sip a glass of wine on your porch and enjoy the lush outdoor grounds in the beautiful wine country.

OK HOUSE, DID NOT MEET MY EXPECTATIONS

  • 3 of 5
The house is OK but did not meet the expectations created by the price level.

Two days before the arrival we still did not have property address / instructions from the owner. He need to be contacted twice before he sent everything. Even after that his email got into junk email folder, which he said could have happen - still, why can not email be designed in a way to avoid "junk mail" folder?

The neighborhood is less than shiny. There is a good grocery store nearby - we loved it.

House itself is less than impressive. Plastic plants, windows facing the fence, very dated microwave and refrigerator, synthetic linens, less than perfectly sharp knifes. The list is long.

On the positive side, the owners were very nice, we liked the garden, and the area is magnificent.

QUAINT AND COZY

  • 4 of 5
Was a very nice and comfortable little house. Close it the plaza to eat and shop. The last night of our vacation we decided to just get takeout and lounge around the house. Was a great deal and much more pleasant than staying at a hotel! The only complaint was being right next to the owners house with no curtains or blinds in the kitchen or dining/living area. Didn't feel like we had full privacy once the sun went down. Would still go back for another stay!

"PERFECT" SONOMA HIDE-AWAY

"Perfect" Sonoma Hide-Away
  • 5 of 5
We just returned from spending a week at this lovely cottage in Sonoma. Each day we remind ourselves of the extremely quiet mornings drinking coffee, the fresh eggs, the doves cooing and the abundance of nature surrounding the cottage. After days filled with exploring, it was a pleasure to return to this peaceful cottage where we could sit on the patio and enjoy a glass of wine from one of the many wineries and wonderful cheese and bread from the Sonoma Market. The tour that Sheila arranged at Sterling was a highlight! Thanks to Bennett & Sheila for the wine upon arrival, well stocked kitchen and most of all for sharing your little piece of paradise. Hope to return again!

LOVELY PRIVATE SETTING

  • 4 of 5
The property was conveniently located just a couple of miles from downtown Sonoma. The owners were gracious and friendly. The cottage is sweet, with a wonderful large private patio, and the kitchen large, light and well-equipped. It was fun using the darling red VW bug to drive to town. Every morning I took my pup on a lovely walk up Lomita to vineyards, and the neighbors were friendly. One morning we found a basket of fresh linens and freshly laid eggs at our front door. We love Sonoma, and really enjoyed our stay.
