Perfectly located, you will find our 'Little Bird Cottage just the ideal place to stay. You can easily access major highways and roads to see all of Sonoma county and more,yet we are tucked away down a quiet private road. How perfect! and we HAVE AIR CONDITIONING:)
We are excited to welcome you to our owner built and designed ground level studio located on our acre and half property here in Sebastopol. We are near, but you won't even know we are there:)
We call it 'Little Bird Cottage', because we have an abundant number of Finch and Chickadees everywhere .The brand new complete kitchen has everything you need to prepare your own meals/or special diets for longer stays if you like, but Sebastopol has a wonderful variety restaurants for you to choose from.
A beautiful hand-crafted 'Potterybarn' like bed, covered with high-end quality linens, pillows, and throws await you after a long day of traveling, sight seeing or visiting friends and family.
Out front of the studio you will find a full porch for enjoying that evening glass of vino you bought while wine tasting, or want to sun yourself a bit?, then relax in the Adirondeck chairs under the vintage Granvenstein apple tree.
From June through Sept. there is berry season;raspberries or boysenberries might show up on the porch to add to your morning breakfast ,yogurt or ice cream, and there is a lemon tree just outside your door.
It's a peaceful neighborhood, beautiful surroundings and close to everything you might want to see in the area. We can't wait to show you this cozy little spot.
Future plans: " SaraPinot Vineyards" is coming!! look for our new hobby vineyard that Ken and our sweet lab "Sara" are putting in this spring 2016.

Ken is a retired:) industrial sheet metal foreman, and Kathy is a retired administrator from a large HMO, and sewing instructor/interior designer, homemaker and lover of all arts/crafts. We are a hardworking family that enjoy the outdoors, small gardening projects, making and building things ourselves. We feel fortunate to be able to share this beautiful county with you.
We have lived in Sebastopol for 18 years.
Raised our children here and wanted some property for them to roam around on, and Ken wanted to live near the coast for Salmon fishing.
Our property is very convenient to neighboring towns, the coast, the Redwoods, and beautiful vineyards.
We spent most of January here, and so glad we did. Little Bird Cottage was pleasing and homey, and just immaculate when we got here. Nice touches, fresh linens delivered weekly in a basket on the porch, with a surprise of wine, or sparkling water. The birds, quail and deer were also a bonus feature for us. We hope to pass this way again. Beautiful state and area you have here Kathy and Ken!
Just left this lovely studio after a 6 night stay in Sebastopol. The cottage was simple yet elegant. The bedding was heavenly. The place was immaculate. After a day of travel from the East Coast it was great to arrive to a bottle of wine and a freshly made fruit cobbler. Thanks, Kathy and Ken.
We have stayed at Little Bird Cottage numerous times - and fall in love with it more each visit. The Cottage is immaculate, comfortable and so very peaceful. We never know what sweet surprise awaits us upon arrival but have learned that it is always a thoughtful and personalized gift just for us. Ken and Kathy are lovely, gracious hosts who we now consider dear friends. This is a very special place...

My husband and I spent a portion of our honeymoon at the Little Bird Cottage. We did not want to leave when the time came. We appreciated all of the attention to detail that was put in to make us feel at home; there was a bottle of wine awaiting us upon our arrival and Kathy even made us a little sign congratulating us on our recent wedding and dropped off some of her homemade chocolate raspberry sauce. There is a soft sided cooler to use if you plan on picnicking; we used it on our canoe trip down the Russian River. There are also plenty of local guides and tips left by other renters on things to do in the area. The cottage itself is a lovely place to relax after a day exploring the area. We enjoyed breakfast on the outside table and enjoyed cozy nights with a bottle of wine. We had plenty of privacy, but Kathy or Ken were just a quick phone call or email away if me needed anything. We did get the pleasure of meeting both of them on our last night. We cannot recommend the Little Bird Cottage enough and we hope to be back!
Arrived late (what else is new!. The lights were on, and sweets and wine on the counter - a nice touch! Quiet, in the countryside, but just a few minutes form Sebastobol, where we had a great lunch at L & K Bistro the following day! The house was perfect - room for two, and everything you might need! The Eides were the perfect hosts - pointed out what needed to be pointed out, and let us know how to get to some odd places we were looking for (like, where can we buy a sim card?)! Easy access to Sonoma and Napa, where there is a lot to do. Check out Bodega Bay where Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds" was filmed; take in the Hess Winery and their wonderful modern art collection, dine at the Boonfly Cafe, play bridge with friends, wine-tastings, unbelievable weather. Chill out! We'll be back!!
My husband and I recently stayed at Little Bird Cottage for 4 nights and totally enjoyed our stay. The owners keep the property beautifully and have thought of everything. We have stayed in quite a few VRBO (mostly in Europe) and this rated very high. Everything about the cottage is great - the bed and how well equipped the cottage is - are most notable. There was a lovely flower bouquet on the counter along with some delicious, tiny pastries and a bottle of wine. And who would ever expect cream in the fridge for our morning coffee. Thank you!
The cottage was a perfect location for our weekend trip. Peaceful countryside for relaxing downtime with short drive to towns in either direction. Inside decor darling, kitchen well stocked and a bed so comfortable we didn't want to leave. Had the pleasure of meeting Ken and enjoyed hearing how the cottage started. Look forward to return trip.
