About Kerstin & David Dieterich

Our family lives in the Bay Area, where David grew up. Our daughter is studying in Europe and our son is studying at UH Manoa in Hawaii. Since Kerstin is from Germany, we have been lucky to explore Europe. We enjoy the outdoors and learning about different cultures. It is exciting to visit new places. For a quick escape we love to come up to the Wine Country and enjoy Glen Ellen. Hope you will enjoy it too!

Why Kerstin & David Dieterich chose Sonoma County

We love Sonoma! In fact we got married here 26 years ago. Glen Ellen is centrally located in the Wine Country: Sonoma, Napa, Healdsburg, Russian River are all within an easy reach. This quiet little town is only about 6 miles north of Sonoma Square.

It takes only an hour from the Golden Gate to get here.

There are so many activities- you can enjoy wine tasting, eat at some of the best restaurants, hike, bike, play golf, enjoy a day at the Sonoma Inn or the Kenwood Spa. Shopping is always fun around the square in Sonoma..and of course you can just kick up your feet in our beautiful shaded garden with a good book and a glass of local wine!

What makes this cottage unique

This little house is cozy and comfortable with a beautiful garden. We recently renovated and refurbished it completely. All the furnishings are new and of good quality. Everything is there for your comfort and convenience:

Two well appointed bed rooms with queen beds and luxury cotton linens, fresh robes and slippers are waiting.

The sofa in the living room is a queen sleeper.

A fully equipped kitchen with gas stove, microwave, blender, coffee maker, wine opener(very important!) and even a picnic basket. We do supply coffee for you.

Dining room seats four.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a lovely stay at this beautifully decorated home. It's in an ideal and quiet location. The yard is wonderful with the hot tub, outdoor shower, and bbq area which we enjoyed using. The kitchen is well equipped and the rooms are very comfortable.

Great Stay in Glen Ellen

  • 5 of 5

We had a great 40th birthday girls trip in Glen Ellen! The house was very close to downtown Glen Ellen with some quaint little restaurants. On a night that we wanted to stay in, there was also a great pizza place that delivered. A highlight was the hot tub - it really made our nights relaxing. We had a slight issue with the jets not working - the property manager stopped by right away the next morning to get it back working properly. We really appreciated the quick assistance. It was a perfect place for a girls getaway and we'd love to stay here again!

perfect back yard

  • 5 of 5

my husband & I along with our 2 best friends stayed 2 nights here. The location was easy to get to winery's, nice quite street.

The back yard was perfect, nice little couch in the back to take a nap on after the winery's then jump in to the Jacuzzi. Kitchen was roomy along with the rest of the house.

Small side note: it was great to see your note on the refrigerator about not wasting food! It was appreciated!

Beautiful home!!

  • 5 of 5

Charming, well-appointed house just minutes away from all the best of Sonoma! After daytime hikes and wine tastings, it was great to relax in the afternoon sun in the backyard. Great dinners at Glen Ellen Star, Glen Ellen Inn & Aventine.

Perfect Location and Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying here - the place was very comfortable and had everything we needed and more. The back patio was amazing! We spent most of our time soaking up the sun, bbq-ing and relaxing in the hot tub. This wine country getaway was perfect and a true GEM. Thank you for making our stay so comfortable and we can't wait to visit again soon!

Great getaway for 4

  • 5 of 5

Overall our stay here was superb. It was myself, my boyfriend, my college roommate, and her fiance. The house fit us all comfortably. I will admit that when we first drove in, the neighbors' unkept lawns and odd looking house exteriors made me question the area. But upon entering the house my worries were relieved. It is beautifully decorated and has such a vast backyard. I used the kitchen to cook the group breakfast and it was very well equipped and so clean. We sat on the back deck and sipped on wine and used the grill to have a barbecue. At night we soaked in the hot tub and shared stories. We also picked veggies and herbs from the garden to use in our meal. It was simply amazing. Every detail of this home was well thought out. It was a really perfect stay.

The house is also in a great location. It is a very quiet block that is about a 5 minute drive to the Glen Ellen city center. It was also close to a number of amazing wineries and about 15 minutes to downtown Sonoma.

Please don't hesitate to stay here. If you need a quiet and relaxing weekend, stay here!

Lovely home

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful home. The home was so inviting and comfortable from the beds to the linens. We loved our stay and hating leaving. Thank you for all the extras from pantry items to nice robes. We especially loved the hot tub and the garden to pick tomatoes and herbs. Hope we can get back in the future. Loved wine tasting and had our nieces Wedding in Sonoma that was gorgeous. Thanks again Kathy and Wayne MacKinnon
