Great place for a relaxing stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is a clean, well equipped place to stay. We cooked in every evening, and having the grill and well equipped kitchen is great for that. The back yard is a great place to either enjoy the hot tub or just sit on the deck and enjoy the garden. The location can't be beat for a walk to the town square, or a nice walk on the bike path or the trails behind veterans park.

Great Location in the Heart of Sonoma Plaza Area

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying here as our base to celebrate my wife's 40th birthday and our 15 year wedding anniversary. It had everything we needed and was a 1 min walk to Sonoma Plaza which made it easy to grab breakfast and just walk around the shops and tasting rooms. It was also a great home base for our visits to several of the nearby wineries in both Sonoma and Napa. Both couples commented on how comfortable the beds were and the front room and back patio were great places to hang out and catch up.

Cute, convenient, close to city center and cozy.

  • 5 of 5

Two couples used the Cottage Sonoma for our base to explore the Sonoma Valley. The Cottage was very clean, neat and well furnished. Parking for one car was fine. Did not use the Hot Tub, but sat on the backyard deck in the evenings and found to be very pleasant. Short walk to Town Square, restaurants, Church and Seven 11. Would use Cottage Sonoma in a heartbeat in the future.

Good job and thank you,

Darling house, great location

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for a great stay! We have stayed in many VRBO's and this one was right up there with other very nice properties. Ideal for the 4 of us, the yard, privacy and closeness to the Plaza was great! Kitchen was wonderfully equipped and the rooms very comfy. There could be a bit more usable storage in the bathrooms (rather than decorative storage) but for a few days, you can work around that easily. We will be back and hope to stay here again! Thanks for a very nice house in great condition.

The Perfect Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Cottage Sonoma is located in the perfect location, less than 2 blocks from Sonoma Square, Whole Foods grocery store, wine tasting rooms, restaurants, shopping and a park. The 2 bedroom each with en suite bathrooms floor plan is ideal for a family or 2 couples. The cottage is impeccably clean, professionally decorated and well equipped with everything you will need to make your stay even more comfortable than your own home. We enjoyed the warmth of the cottage and relaxing on the deck in the back yard so much that we cancelled our dinner reservations and grilled in the evenings. We definitely plan to stay at Cottage Sonoma on our next visit to California wine country. Thank you Byron, for making our stay very special.

This cottage is wonderful, quiet, close to the Square, and very peaceful... Well worth the time spent here... From the comfortable beds, the well-stocked kitchen, & the hot tub, the overall 'feel' leaves you feeling you have been on a weeklong vacation from the two days we stayed at the cottage...
