I have mid-western roots and California branches, and my background includes cooking, gardening, renovating, sewing, designing, calculating, photographing, painting, and mothering. We love sharing our cottage, which has a lot of warm character and Berkeley history, with travelers young and old.

Charming place in great location
This was our second time at the cottage. The place is close to Trader Joe's and the Gourmet Getto. There are other good places to visit, like Acme Bakery and Monterey Market also within walking distance if you are willing to invest the time. The house is intimate and very clean. Yet we were there with our 14 years old son and the three of us had enough of room to move around. The balcony by the kitchen was very nice to enjoy the morning coffee. We will definitely be back.
Wonderful, charming cottage at a fantastic location, with a superb host
Anne is a terrific host who was super responsive to our questions ahead of our stay, and provided clear check-in instructions to the Goldfinch Cottage. Our family of four enjoyed our six-night stay here. The location is excellent - within easy walking distance to downtown Berkeley businesses and restaurants. It felt very private as the cottage is set back far from the street, behind the main house. Everything described on the listing is there. Loved the small but very functional kitchen, which was stocked with everything we needed and more. The garden was absolutely beautiful - the pictures on the listing don't do justice. We would not hesitate to book this cottage again when we return to Berkeley in the future.
Nice little cottage
Sweet cottage tucked into a backyard in a surprisingly quiet neighborhood, considering it is easy walking distance to campus, restaurants and BART. Kitchen is small but well appointed. Great quirky art display on the neighbor's wall as you walk into the yard.
Lovely cottage. Wonderful stay. Excellent location.
We had a lovely stay at this cottage. Comfy, cute and in an ideal location for us. We will definitely come back again whenever we are in the Bay Area.
A Perfect 10!
Great property! Highly recommend. Comfortable, relaxing, quiet with easy walking to UCB area. Loved it! The perfect gem. Thanks!
