Overview

About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom plus loft, (Sleeps 3-4)

This remodeled one-bedroom, one-bath cottage has everything you could ask for when visiting the wine country: expansive decks, plush patio furniture and high-end grill to enjoy the outdoors, and a cozy living room with contemporary furniture, art by local artists, king-size bed, and a chef’s kitchen (Viking Range) for indoor comfort. WiFi enabled. Bring your smartphone, download the Sonos app and enjoy our wireless stereo system. Watch a film from our movie library or stream a movie from your laptop using Roku. Upstairs is a loft with two single beds.

The cottage shares two acres with a main house and is set amongst California live oaks and Bay trees. A “winter” creek runs through the property. Lots of open space, full of Redtail hawks, wild turkeys, deer and the occasional fox. Take a walk down the quiet country lane or better yet, bring bikes and enjoy one of Sonoma’s best biking regions. We are right near one of Sonoma’s best regional parks, Annadel State Park. Historic Jack London State Park is only 15 minutes by car.

The cute town of Kenwood is only five minutes by car. Glen Ellen’s top rated restaurants are 15 minutes and the downtown of Sonoma is 25 minutes. Quiet and secluded, the cottage is also just minutes from some of Sonoma Valley’s best and most picturesque wineries, including Ledson, Kunde and St. Francis.

Please note: the cottage does not have air-conditioning, but it does have plenty of ventilation and fans and the wine country almost always cools down nicely at night. The second floor is accessed by a steep spiral staircase, and the TV is on the second floor. The TV has netflix and other online accounts, but does not have cable channels.

Why Eric Pfeiffer chose Sonoma County

My partner and I purchased this property a few years ago because we fell in love with the area: quiet, secluded, yet close to the best wineries and restaurants in the Sonoma Valley.

What makes this cottage unique

We have remodeled the cottage and love sitting on the expansive deck and watching the wildlife go by.

cute cottage, great decks, very relaxing environment

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The cottage is modern and clean with a great outdoor deck space and grill. I loved how quiet it was and we only saw cars go by occasionally. We saw rabbits, dear, turkeys and a fox! You are really out there in the country though so may not be the best spot for someone looking to come and go a lot. But we loved it and even the drive itself along the backcountry roads was very pleasant. We had a couple of minor issues and the owner was responsive. We would definitely come back

Very relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

This home was small but huge in personality. Such a great retreat from our hectic weekend wedding schedule. Only a few miles from our Niece's wedding at Kunde Winery. I would definitely love to stay again to just take walks and chill at the house.

Perfect for a wine weekend

  • 5 of 5

The house was adorable, tucked behind a few Sonoma vineyards, located in a central spot for wine touring. VERY up-to-date accommodations! The owner has great style, with high quality furniture, comfortable bedding, and a lovely outdoor space. Zero complaints. I'd recommend this place to my grandma!

Gorgeous and comfortable hideaway in Kenwood

  • 5 of 5

Claire's Cottage is an excellent option when looking for a place to stay in the Sonoma valley. The house itself is quiet, roomy, cozy and tucked away among beautiful scenery. We got to see a mama deer and her baby come right to the porch, which was followed shortly thereafter by a huge wild tom turkey! Great location to launch from for tasting or touring some great wineries. The cottage itself is well appointed, modern and tastefully decorated. This place is so nice! Thank you to our hosts! They really made this a perfect spot.
