Overview

About the property

Cottage, Studio + Other (See Description),(Sleeps 2)

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.

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.

Why Kathy or Ken chose Sonoma County

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.

What makes this cottage unique

Our property is very convenient to neighboring towns, the coast, the Redwoods, and beautiful vineyards.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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!

My husband and I celebrated our 41st wedding anniversary at Little Bird Cottage and found it to be delightful in every way! We were looking for a peaceful, charming cottage that was far enough away from noisy streets to be restful yet near enough to drive and explore quaint little towns, the beautiful north coast and of course the wine country! Little Bird Cottage was the perfect fit❤️

And where do I begin with Ken and Kathy? They should get an award for the most hospitable hosts ever!!! Everything from their warm welcome to surprise goodies and tips on area restaurants and sights to see made us feel right at home. They definitely blessed us with their attention to detail and thoughtfulness❤️

Hope to return again someday...... Gary and Pam~ Modesto CA

Beautiful private cottage with all the amenities.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is well-stocked with everything you need. There's even a picnic basketand a cooler! And the welcome with wine and dessert was wonderful. We especially liked all of the local information on where to eat and what to do. And Ken and Kathy provides great tips on things we didn't know we should do! All in all, it was a wonderful place to stay.

We try and update the information when we can so our guest are informed about all there is to see and do in the beautiful Sonoma County; looks like it came in handy for you. Please come back and stay a little longer, there's so much more to see.

Delivered as advertised

  • 5 of 5

The Little Bird Cottage was everything we had hoped for and more. It was perfectly located for us on this trip and although our stay happened to coincide with a record breaking heat wave, the Cottage remained surprising cool most of the day. The small air conditioning unit took care of the peaks in the late afternoon.

It was so peaceful and quiet which made it the perfect place to have coffee on the porch in the morning and a glass of wine in the evening.

We enjoyed several of the recommended local restaurants - the food was fantastic and the prices were more than reasonable.

Highly recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a quiet, well detailed home, and in a perfect location to enjoy what Sonoma Valley has to offer.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much; recommendations like yours are so important to us, not only for future business, but for our future guests who can utilize your detailed input to help plan their stays at Little Bird Cottage. It sounds like you got the most in you could during such an unseasonable heat wave, and we were glad the AC provided the relief you need. Please fly back to the "nest" one day, there's more to see:))

Charm and comfort

  • 5 of 5

The Little Bird Cottage couldn’t be more charming if you were awakened by 12 little birds every morning. The cottage is beautifully furnished and decorated, expertly maintained and cleaned, and perfectly appointed with everything you'll need to enjoy your visit to Sonoma. The space is comfortable for two, particularly the bed, which we considered stealing and taking home with us — LOL. Ken and Kathy know the area well and provide a wealth of material to help you explore the area, and Kathy makes an extra effort to make you feel welcomed and special. The only item we might have missed was a grill, but truth be told, we spent all but one of our evenings enjoying Sonoma’s many outstanding restaurants. We’ll definitely return to the Little Bird Cottage in the future. Thank you so much, Ken and Kathy!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for writing such a greatly detailed review. Our future guests will benefit from your input. So glad you tried out some of the fantastic area restaurants, but next time let us know about the grill; we do have one for our guests; you just need to ask ahead so we can get it out for you (we don't have a area/shed) to store it in as yet. Thanks again, and yes, we get asked all the time about what kind of bed we use; guests really seem to love it! Looking forward to your return "to the next" ;)). Your Hosts, Kathy and Ken
