Property type cottage

About the property

1 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, Sleeps 2 (TOT#408)

The Cottage sits on a knoll, on 5 acres of land, overlooking the eastern hillsides and the vineyards of the Carneros wine region. The Cottage is an excellent stay for a couple to celebrate an anniversary, spend a honeymoon or just get away. (TOT#408)

Major wineries are within a 5 to 10 minute drive. (Viansa, Cline, Gundlach Bundschu, Buena Vista, Sebastiani, Ravenswood just to name a few.)

The deck off the back of the cottage offers complete privacy and a wonderful place to enjoy morning coffee with the rising eastern sun, relax with afternoon tea, or celebrate the day with evening wine and cheese. The views are marvelous over the top of the oaks and vineyards. On cool evenings relax by the fire and enjoy music, snuggle up, view a movie or sit back with a good book.

Two Morgan horses graze in our pastures. See them on our website

The area is safe and quiet for evening or morning walks. Walk a mile or take on four.

Absolutely perfect! Can't wait to go back.

  • 5 of 5

There are no words to describe how perfect this cottage is. Location is great: you are ~4 miles from downtown Sonoma and split perfectly in between the Carneros region. Very close to amazing wineries in Sonoma and Napa. Bob and Wendy are amazing hosts that go above and beyond to make sure you enjoy your stay. My favorite part of the entire trip was sitting on the deck at night (and enjoying the hot tub) watching the sunset. I cannot wait to come back!

Perfect Sonoma Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a long weekend here in the studio. It was so close to many vineyards. We loved taking the bikes to the nearby vineyards. Bob was extremely helpful and mapped out less traveled roads so we would not be in traffic. We loved coming home at the end of the day and grilling out on the deck. We enjoyed the cool evening temperatures, magnificent views, and watched the sunset. We are already looking at our calendars for a return trip.
