Sonoma Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

We have had a love affair with Sonoma for years and are happy to call it home, every now and again anyway. We picked Birch Rd. to build our family getaway and want to share it with you. We took a the wonderful shell of an old 1940's cottage and gave it a facelift to create the most relaxing, comfortable retreat you can imagine. Our modern Sonoma cottage is fully renovated with high-end finishes and decorated with style. Whether you want to bike ride around the gorgeous countryside (bikes provided and many wineries within biking distance), walk to Sonoma Plaza for shopping/dining or lounge by the pool all day and dine al fresca, this cottage is for you.

We have also thought of every detail, especially if you want to bring your kids along. We have a gorgeous pool (with automatic cover that holds the weight of a truck, so no safety issues), custom, modern wooden play set, bikes, toys and portable crib/other items for babies. Our cottage also includes built in bunk beds for 2 kids age 12 and under.

Our cottage is perfect for your Sonoma get together, with a large outdoor dining table and pool lounge chairs for your friends.

The cottage boasts a brand new custom kitchen, new stainless appliances and an indoor dining area. Each of the bedrooms includes a Queen size bed.

In addition, we have a brand new gas fire pit for enjoying your last glass of Cab in the evening, under the cafe lights.

The bathroom is stylishly renovated with a deep soaking tub and bluetooth speaker that seamlessly connects to your phone & music.

About Jill Williams

We are a family of 4 from Marin County. Mom, Dad, Girl, Boy. We love wine country and the simplicity of small town living...on the weekends anyway!

Jill Williams purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Jill Williams chose Sonoma County

We love the country. We love wine, we love the restaurants and we love our neighbors. Everyone in Sonoma is so incredibly nice and we love riding our bikes everywhere and enjoying the unbelievably nice weather.

What makes this cottage unique

Riding our bikes to wineries and the Square. Walking to restaurants. Lounging by the pool. Spending our life outside.

Perfect Sonoma Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at this Sonoma house. It is right out of a page of West Elm- uniquely decorated with modern and comfortable furniture. We spent most of our time outdoors as Jill and family have made this the ideal "hang out" centerpiece of the house. Nice long wooden table for breakfast and dinner with grill for easy cooking options. The pool was perfect temperature for lazing around after a day at the wineries. We had planned to go out to dinner one night, but said, why would we leave here? There were the right amount of dishes, coffee mugs, silverware....even mason jars to dress up your happy hour cocktails! Plenty of towels for showers and pool as well! And Jill was very responsive to any questions along the way. Would HIGHLY recommend for two couples and 2 kids.

Terrific location, fantastic home, beautifully appointed, will be returning to this lovely property

  • 5 of 5

This is an overdue 5++ STAR review of this well appointed and well thought out home in Sonoma. We stayed in this home back in November 2015 and haven't really taken the time to write a review since our experience is well reflected in so many 5 Star reviews that have been left. What more could we add ? I returned to the rental page this morning to plan our Fall weekend trip and see now that there is something for us to add. We'd like to voice here that there is absolutely NO security issues or concerns with the location or property. Having visited Sonoma for over 20+ years, the street (road), neighborhood, and nearby homes of this property were as expected. Some homes are newly remodeled, reflecting recent ownership, while others were in their original condition occupied by long time residents. The property is not in a gated community nor is it a new development. It's located on a quiet street, near town, and mainly occupied by local residents. We were two women in our 40s traveling with a 5 year old. We did not feel unsafe at any point in our stay. We recommend this property highly, it is clean, safe and beautiful. The property is as described in the rental description and pictures. No surprises. The owner was professional and friendly, access to the property was straightforward. We are 3+ times a year vacation home renters and, sadly, we can't say that every rental we've experienced is 5 Stars. This property exceeds 5 Stars. We hope this belated review is helpful to potential renters who might have concerns about the location. We recommend it without hesitation. Our family will be returning at some point this year.

This house was perfect for a weekend getaway with my girlfriends. The location and residence are just as described. It is beautifully and tastefully decorated and the home had everything we needed--we really didn't want to leave! Jill was a helpful and gracious hostess. She even offered for us to stay past checkout time because no one was checking in the next day. I would absolutely go back and highly recommend this property!!

The house was a great home base for our trip to Sonoma, close to restaurants, shops and tastings!

  • 5 of 5

The house was totally redone and looked brand new in the inside. The backyard was a great getaway, pool, gas fire table and the lawn was lush and green. The decor was cool and comfortable. The house had everything you would ever need. Four adults and one wild 13 month old had plenty of room. We used the bikes to ride to the square several times. Great restaurants to choose from. We ate breakfast at the little bakery on the square every morning.. Many vineyards and tasting rooms close by.

I would and have already recommended this property to anyone looking at a Sonoma getaway.
