Iva's Vineyard Cottage and Garden house

Perfectly situated in the vineyard gateway of the town of Sonoma, Iva's Cottage and Garden House offer a charming bungalow cottage perfect for two, three or four traveling together. The House can accommodate an additional 4 to 8 adults.

The location is half-way between town, and many of Sonoma's finest wineries, Viansa, Jacuzzi, Cline, Schug and Gloria Ferrer, and Rams Gate just to name a few. The cottage is set back from the main road and is part of a larger, historic family farm and Vineyard.

While the cottage is vintage, it is completely redone, renovation completed in 2009. New kitchen and appliances with granite counters and a very large travertine tiled shower are all part of the new design. The house was redone this year with tile floor in kitchen and wood flooring throughout. A fireplace in the dining room and wood stove in the master bedroom.

As a part of this cottage and house package, a private tasting of premium wine at two of the local wineries are included in the rate. Take advantage of being the 'neighbor' and enjoy Sonoma at it's best.

'It's hard to find vintage charm mixed with modern conveniences and Iva's does it well. Plenty of character with none of the funk - I love this cottage. Window views are green, and there are two different outdoor sitting areas not mentioned in the main description. The gardens are beautiful and lush great for an outdoor gathering. Ask about the availability for wedding and reception dinners.

Iva's is sweet, up to date, and has every amenity one would need for the weekend, a week long getaway or that special event. Come stay with us!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My son and I left our home at 6am on the 14th. At 6:30pm we arrived at your cottage. Travel weary we opened the door to all the lights on, TV with music, fresh flowers, bottle of wine, How wonderful! The week went so quickly-every night coming "home" to the cottage. The beds were wonderful, the kitchen was great. Today is our last day and I feel sad-I want to stay! We hope we can come again. Thank you so much.

A wonderful stay at Iva's Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Iva's Cottage was a splendid delight. My family and I spent five wonderful days touring the Sonoma and Napa Valley's. The cottage was a great central location for all our activities ie, wine tasting at several locations, strolling the Sonoma Plaza shopping, Train Town with the kids and even a trip to San Francisco sightseeing. Inside and out, the cottage was clean, fresh and beautifully maintained. It was everything they described on their website. Our family highly recommends Iva's Cottage and we've already booked our next stay.

Great place close to a lot of fun stuff!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful experience. Both of the houses were well equipped and all of us were very comfortable.

The owner was helpful and made great recommendations on where to go.

Easy to get to downtown and a great place to hang out with some coffee on the front or back porch in the morning.

Cozy and Cute Spot in Sonoma!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Cottage and Garden House! I organized a bachelorette party with a total of 8 ladies, and it was the perfect spot for us to hang out in the evenings and sleep comfortably. It was super convenient to have cable with the music channels for background music while playing games and eating. Broadway Market wasn't far at all to grab groceries, and we found everything we needed for the couple of nights we were there to cook little meals and snacks. Everyone loved this place and great memories were made!

Great location. Great host.

  • 4 of 5

Super convenient location and shannon was more than responsive and helpful when we needed her- even going above and beyond. I stayed here for a long weekend (6 of us - so 3 to a house) and it was more than enough space and had all you needed.

We rented both the house and cottage and they were roomy for 9, the beds are amazing, the kitchens spacious. The grounds were perfect. To bad it was too chilly for us to be out in their patio area with seating for 20 or more. They even have their own little redwood forest (3) but it's still amazing. Owners were responsive with help on places to go and see. Highly recommend staying here.
