Cotati Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 6, full bathroom, studio cottage

Unique one-room cottage with vaulted ceilings and loft is a maximum-efficiency get-away for up to 6 people. Double bed folds into wall when not in use, couch converts into double bed, and the loft with a padded, carpeted floor accomodates two in sleeping bags, with hexagonal window overlooking the private patio area. Flat-screen TV with surround sound, local phone and wireless internet service, washer and dryer, natural linens provided.

The Italian-style design features a spacious tiled shower, hammered copper kitchen farm sink, heavy-duty gas cooktop, roomy antique cabinet, microwave, toaster oven and refrigerator.

This is the smaller of two rental houses on a 1-1/2 acre park in a quiet and intimate Tahoe-like setting. Just an hour from San Francisco, the cottage is on the grounds where Lu Watters (1912-1989), traditional jazz musician of international fame, built his home.

Conveniently located near highway 101, the wine country, 3 miles from Sonoma Stage University.

Wonderful getaway cottage

  • 5 of 5

We could have not asked for a nicer place to stay as we explored San Francisco and the surrounding area. The cottage was well furnished and comfortable. Location was great too, close to highway 101, easy to get to SF or over to the coast and north to the big trees. Great vacation home and nice owners.

Great Weekend Away

  • 5 of 5

Definitely recommend staying here! We booked with Ron and the process was super easy. This cottage is great for a weekend getaway for couples, families, or a group of friends. The cottage is cozy, but definitely had enough space for the 6 of us staying there. We arrived Friday for a weekend of wine tasting and were so happy to have such a great place to stay that was safe, comfortable, and cozy. I'll definitely recommend it to others from out of town and plan on booking again for my next visit. Thanks, Ron!

A really great vacation cottage!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed there too long ago to put the right date in, so I fibbed. The first time I was there was November 2011, then November 2012. We REALLY like the Sage Hen's cottage. With the firepit, kitchen and the grill we can keep ourselves entertained and fed without going out for dinner every night. Ron is always a real pleasure to talk to, and he always lets us collect guavas, which fall off the plants by the driveway in November, and are delicious. Cotati is a very convenient place if you're interested in driving to points of interest from Point Reyes to Healdsburg. We do a combination of hiking and wine tastings, so being able to get to a lot of places is important.

Stayed for an extended time for work. Everything you need is here in this efficient, comfortable cottage.

Great to have in-unit washer and dryer and fully equipped kitchen. Great location, close to wine country, shopping and excellent restaurants!

Highly recommended!

The cottage was clean, well furnished, washer/dryer, an outdoor patio, quiet and was very private despite being on the owner's property. We were initially uncertain about the double size Murphy bed but slept well and found it to be very comfortable despite being use to a king size bed at home. When our grandchildren visited they played in the fenced in yard and had a great time running around. The location was convenient to everything: Bodega Bay, Sonoma, Train Town, local wineries and shopping if you so desire. Absolutely loved the place and we will be back! Thank you Ron for a great experience.

A delightful hideaway

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a lovely few days in this cottage. Ron was very helpful with any questions throughout the booking process and great at responding to emails.

The cottage is in a great location for wine tasting (why we were visiting) we were able to visit several vineyards in the area.

The cottage is very cute, well designed and has everything you need. It is on the owners property, but still feels private. Visit Oliver's Deli Market nearby for delicious supplies to eat on your private patio, with the wine you have picked up at local wineries. Close to the 101 for San Fran and many other locations.

Thank you for a lovely stay!
