About lance cutler
My wife and I have lived in Sonoma for more than 30 years. For most of that time I was a working winemaker and my wife ran a tasting room. We love cooking, eating, and the wine country lifestyle in general. Our home is renowned throughout the industry as a mecca for hospitality.
lance cutler purchased this Cottage in 2001
Why lance cutler chose Sonoma
We fell in love with Sonoma during a visit in 1976. By 1977 we had moved here and the next year I began a career in the wine business. After renting a small cottage for 23 years, my wife and I decided to build our own home. We built the main house and the rental unit in 2001. My wife has planted and maintains a stunning garden on the property. In short, this is a great spot in the heart of Sonoma Wine Country that we have built with our own hands.
What makes this Cottage unique
First off the property sits in a real, rustic neighborhood. It's not screened off by metal fences and high walls. Just blocks from the Sonoma Mission Inn, several restaurants and five burrito wagons, you'll be centrally located to start your exploration of Wine Country.

Great home base for visiting the Napa Sonoma area, very attentive and kind host
This property was perfect, quaint and well taken care of. The owners are two of the best people that you will find. If we ever go to Sonoma again, there is only one place to stay. Highly recommended.
Great experience all around
The property was clean and comfortable. Exactly as described. Everything you need was there and the hosts were warm and welcoming, just like Sonoma! Great vacation all around.
We had a wonderful stay. The garden suite was immaculately clean and private. Lance and Sandy were great welcoming hosts. We are definitely hoping to come back.
Perfect Anniversary Getaway or for a NASCAR weekend
Best decision we made! The cottage was very quaint & stocked with all the amenities we could need for a weekend away. Lance was the perfect host. The cottage is very close to downtown & was within 30 minutes of the Sonoma Racetrack. We will definitely be re-booking for our next trip to Sonoma.
Wine country cottage
We enjoyed staying in this delightful two-room cottage in the midst of an enchanting garden, with a private deck. The accommodations were well and thoughtfully appointed, and impeccably clean. The bedroom was spacious, with ample storage, and the queen bed was quite comfortable. The bathroom was good-sized, with a huge tiled walk-in shower. The living room had a couch, small dining table, and a very nicely equipped kitchen, including some high quality chef’s knives. The couch and chair were older formal pieces, but a plethora of cushions provided more than adequate lounging comfort.
The host was congenial and informative, and in addition provided a binder with copious information and advice regarding local restaurants, wineries, and things to do. Judging from the unobtrusively covered loom in the corner, and the coiled, colorful woven mats decoratively arranged in clay pots around the space, the cottage appears to double as an artist’s studio. On the other side of the building, accessed through a separate entrance, our host proudly displayed his personal wine-making operation, which was most impressive.
Although in a somewhat modest neighborhood, the lodgings are ideally situated for an exploration of the wine country. In short, you will have everything you need for a pleasant and relaxing stay, and all at a bargain price for the area. Highly recommended.
