Overview

Santa Rosa Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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

The Oaks of Olivet on the fringe of the Laguna de Santa Rosa, our six acre paradise, has majestic oak trees, some believed to be over 400 years old. Along with an orchard and large pastures the property also is surrounded by vineyards on two sides. With its address on prestigious Olivet Road, you will be within minutes of 9 award winning wineries. You are in the heart of the famous Russian River Valley, known for the ever popular Pinot Noir.

Just a short 10 minute trip to Sebastopol, 20 minutes to Guerneville and the Armstrong Redwood Forest and 30 minutes to Bodega Bay. Restaurants dot the countryside with gourmet menus typical of this Northern California paradise. Enjoy the country living but drive 15 minutes to be in either the heart of downtown Santa Rosa with it's many shops or travel 20 minutes to Healdsburg with it's quaint character and shop lined town square.

Walk the acreage, view hawks, jack rabbits, foxes and owls. Awake in the morning to hot air balloons floating over the misty morning sky. Sit on the lanai in the evening, sip a glass of wine and view the starry show. NEW ADDITION: TWO PERSON HOT TUB.

Amenities: Two Person Hot Tub, Fieldstone gas fireplace, gas barbeque propane fire pit, covered outdoor eating area, outdoor and indoor shower, kitchenette with water cooler, satellite television, dvd player, stereo (outdoor speakers also), cd/dvd library, books, magazines and board games, and corn hole game in the back.

About Michelle Olson

We have enjoyed the Oaks of Olivet since 2004 as visitors to Sonoma County. In July of 2010 we made the move from Minnesota to live here full time. We are affordable housing developers and work from our home office. We are on site to make sure our guests have everything they need, but understand that guests call the shots on how much privacy is necessary.

Michelle Olson purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Michelle Olson chose Sonoma County

We fell in love in San Francisco and then visited wine country. This area was an annual anniversary trip for us after we married. The annual trips turned into quarterly visits to Sonoma and Napa. We truely fell for Sonoma and decided to purchase and make a plan to move here to live full time. Our 10 year plan has now come to fruition. We really love the friendly people in the area and the ease of life in general. The local fresh produce is also a real plus.

What makes this cottage unique

We have 9 award winning wineries on our road. Our property has a full fruit orchard and gardens that we share with our guests. We currently have peach, pear, plum, apple, fig and apricots. We have recently added a propane fire pit and a two person hot tub behind the cottage for our guests to enjoy.

Wonderful and cozy place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent time at "Oaks of Olivet" - so great we had to stay an extra day!! The cabin is very comfortable and homy - our kids of 9 and 10 loved to pet the animals and throw a few balls in the basketball hoop, the porch is a great spot for breakfast and bbq at night. Michelle is a great host and the homemade marmelade she put for us was delicious! We drove down to the coast via the windy Occidental road, visited Bodega Bay and trips to the Russian River and Armstrong Redwood forrest: A wonderful stay that will remain in our memories!!

Such a great find

  • 5 of 5

It's a small quaint cabin so relaxing a great place to de stress.Very private they go out of their way to give suggestions for things to do and place to eat .Great bed and the best outside shower but they do have a inside also .they left us fresh plums on the counter so sweet .We stayed four night they have goats and alphacas they also had sheep and rooster and horses around .Lots of vinyards on there road.And the best porch swing on the patio I would highly recommend if you just need a break from life . It is not a 5 star luxury if that's what you are looking for but we will definitely go back we loved it so close to venture to small towns around and the north coast is about 25 mins and the Armstrong redwood Forrest about the same

Owner's Response: Betsy, Thank you for your honest and sweet review of the Oaks of Olivet. We hope that you enjoyed the country sounds from our neighboring sheep and rooster. We choose not to have those animals directly on our farm, to assure that our customers have the peace and quiet they are looking for. We do hope you come back to visit us again. Thank you, Michelle

Oaks at Olivet

  • 5 of 5

We had a most relaxing weekend at "Rancho Relaxo" and wanted to say thank you. Your cottage there is lovely, comfortable, and more spacious than expected. We slept very well as the beds were very comfortable and all was quiet. Thank you for making up the bed for our son, too. Lots of thoughtful touches throughout, and we enjoyed the artwork and how it was decorated. The plums were delicious, thank you. We enjoyed meeting all your four-legged members (dogs, cats, alpacas, goats). It was truly a pleasure to stay there.

Wine Country Gem

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about the Oaks of Olivet. This gem in the middle of the Russian Valley is a beautiful cottage that lends new meaning to peaceful. The property is a absolute delight. It has all the needed ingredients for a great visit. Property is located within 10 minutes of many great boutique family owned wineries. The hosts are the best we have ever had on VRBO. They go out of their way to make sure you are taken care of, from the wine & cheese upon your arrival to their making sure your trip if going well. They provide great recommendations to wineries, restaurant and other activities in the area. This property is one worth visiting many times. We will be back as often as we can.

idyllic stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time there. It was perfect size for 2. Very quiet and peaceful. The covered Patio was a very quiet restful place to read or just have a nap. We were only there 4 nights & wish we could have stayed longer. Michelle was very nice & helpful with arrangements. The cottage was clean and the little welcome gifts of wine, Apple butter, strawberries, and cucumber were really nice. We would definitely come back again. In fact, this is our first choice for a future visit.

9 award winning wineries right on Olivet Road. Santa Rosa Creek walking trail is close by, a short drive to get to (it will take you into downtown Santa Rosa). One side of the trail is paved and the other is gravel, so biking is also an option. A short 20 minute drive to the Armstrong Redwood Forest in Guerneville, a must see. We are also a 30 minute drive to Bodega Bay.
