About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 2 TOT#1096N

The Speakeasy Cottage is located one hour north of San Francisco nestled on a 20 acre private ranch off of Scenic Hwy 12 in Kenwood, CA. Our late Aunt Sally Stanford purchased the ranch in 1961 as a quiet retreat from the hustle and bustle of San Francisco. She was San Franciscos's most famous Madame and Sausalito's former Mayor. We named this rental 'Speakeasy Cottage' as a tribute to her illustrious career.

The cottage is located right in the heart of Sonoma County wine country in an area that is well known as the Valley of the Moon.

We are registered with the county and our Transient Occupany Tax Number is # 1096N.

- The quite hours (10pm-7am) to be observed by all guests.

Just amazing

  • 5 of 5

Stayed 3 nights at the Sally Stanford Ranch and our stay was amazing. We were on a 2 week journey for our 30th anniversary and this was one of the highlights of our trip. Very clean and comfy. One night we stayed in and enjoyed the outdoor patio and fire pit. The weather was awesome and we were able to leave the door open and turn up the stereo so we could hear it and relax. The laundry was right out the back fence and was fully stocked. I love staying in places with laundry so the long extended trips allow for less packing. All in all I would definitely recommend.

Wonderful Wine Country Rental

  • 5 of 5

The Speakeasy Cottage on the Sally Stanford Ranch may be viewed as a small 1bedroom/1 bath rental but it is huge on charm, location and even size. We were greeted with fresh flowers, a very nice bottle of local wine, great coffee, half and half, a choice of milk, local cheese, crackers, cereal and even some popcorn. The living room, bedroom and bathroom are all generously sized. We cooked brunch every day in the well-stocked kitchen and enjoyed the patio, especially the fire pit on a chilly evening. There's also an outdoor heater for your use. The owners share a notebook full of suggestions to enjoy the nearby parks, wineries (with 2 for 1 tasting coupons) and nearby dining and shopping opportunities. We made some great memories during our four day weekend that included a trip to the Armstrong Woods, Jenner and the coast as well as wineries in the Russian River Valley, Sonoma Valley and Green Valley. Judy and David went out of their way to answer questions and make suggestions that helped make this a trip to treasure. We look forward to staying at the ranch again. It's a great location with easy access to so many wineries as well as beautiful outdoor areas. We will return.
