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.

There is a gas fireplace for warmth and ambiance. We do have central heating and air conditioning, plus fans in each room.

TV, Cable, DVD player and wireless internet are available to you.

The spacious private garden offers a brand new deck with a hot tub and a private outdoor shower, comfortable lounge furniture, a fire pit and BBQ. You can dine alfresco on the big farm table. There are big shade trees and even a little veggie and herb garden for you to enjoy.

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.

Adorable house in Glen Ellen

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time. This home was so adorable and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. We felt pampered by all of the amenities.

And we really enjoyed the area. Kerstin was great about helping us make accommodations. Our entire family, including our dog, loved our stay!

Wonderful Thanksgiving getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I along with our two adult children enjoyed a beautiful, relaxing week in the Sonoma valley! Property exceeded expectations as not only did it provide all of the comforts of home but location was very convenient to the quaint town of Sonoma and surrounding wineries. House was clean, well kept, and well equipped. Hot tub with outdoor shower was much appreciated while the fire pit provided the perfect conversation spot for enjoying one of the local vintages.

Kerstin and David were fantastic hosts and very responsive to all questions! Property manager Amy stopped by for a routine hot tub check and provided great local insight as did neighbor Tasha.

Highly recommend a visit to River's End Restaurant in Jenner for a beautiful sunset dinner. Also, vintner Giovanni Balistreri and Tess at Russian Valley Vineyards in Forestville provided the consummate wine tasting experience accompanied by an outstanding selection of enjoyable reds and whites. A trip to Quivira Vineyard (great sandwiches at the nearby General Store) and the town of Healdsburg proved to be another day trip worth scheduling. We also enjoyed a cave tour at Kunde Family winery and a visit to the historic Buena Vista Winery in Sonoma.

All in all, we had a fantastic week and are looking forward to our next stay!

Charming home with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

What a loveley little home! It was a perfect place for my husband and me to celebrate our anniversary! It was very clean and updated. The hot tub and outdoor shower were wonderful after a day spent touring the wineries! Located in a quiet residential neighborhood close to many wineries. We would love to go back!

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.
