Can't wait to come back to Cottage Sonoma!

  • 5 of 5

Arrived on a Thursday afternoon and opened the door to loveliness - the home is soo spacious and welcoming. My boys loved the long hallway and running around in the backyard. We appreciated the short walk to the Square to have dinner, cheese or letting the boys run around and play on the play structures. We enjoyed wine tasting at Lasseter & Gundlach Bundschu as well as a dinner out at Aventine (Glen Ellen).

We come to Sonoma quite frequently and have to say, this is one of the best homes we have rented! You will definitely enjoy Cottage Sonoma if you are lucky enough to reserve this place!

Cottage Sonoma

Cottage Sonoma was a delightful place to stay! It is very clean and comfortable with many amenities. Best of all it is in a great location. We were able to walk to the town square to shop and eat. I would highly recommend this cute cottage!

Perfect mini vacation in Sonoma

  • 5 of 5

This great little house is perfect for a small family or two couples vacationing together. Only one short block from the Plaza, you can walk to dinner, shops and wine tasting in the square. It is also within walking distance of a Whole Foods for stocking up on any groceries you may need for a long weekend.

It has two bedrooms, each with its own private bath, super comfy beds and a huge kitchen with everything you could think of.........from simply making coffee in the morning to cooking a full breakfast or dinner in the evening. It also has a lovely patio and backyard for relaxing in the evening and enjoying those wines purchased during your wine tasting day.

The only caution I would add is that it is a very small driveway and since it is so close to downtown, there's limited street parking. We only had one car so it was not an issue but having more than one car to park for the weekend might be difficult.

Thank you, Byron.......We will definitely be back!

Great Stay and Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

The Sonoma Cottage was the perfect place for a weekend getaway. We couldn't have asked for a better location, walking distance to shopping, restaurants and walking/biking path. A very clean and spacious home with backyard, deck and hot tub! We would recommend this property for anyone visiting the area.
