About Joe and Shari Franklin
We moved from Orange County CA to the beautiful Temecula Valley in 2009. Temecula is such a great place to raise a family and we have loved our time here. There is so much to do and enjoy here: wineries, hot air balloons, casinos, wedding venues, nearby Lake Skinner and Vail Lake, horse back riding - you name it, we got it!
Joe and Shari Franklin purchased this Cottage in 2009
Why Joe and Shari Franklin chose Temecula
We chose our five acre ranch because it was situated close to shopping, restaurants and wineries, while feeling like you are out in the country. It also gives our labradoodles space to run and play! Tranquility, peace and quiet is what makes out property amazing!
What makes this Cottage unique
It is so rare in California to find a brick, ranch style house - when we drove up to this property we knew it was for us! And then when we saw the cute cottage on the property and we fell in love with it. We love sharing our property with friends and family and are excited to share it with you.

It was wonderful, so homey and welcoming. The owners were very welcoming and kind.
This was a wonderful, easy rental. So much better than staying in a hotel or resort. It was quiet and peaceful. The amenities were perfect. The setting was picturesque. I would 100% recommend this cottage as well as stay here again.
Great Location for Wine and Soccer
My daughter and I stayed in the cottage when visiting Temecula for a soccer tournament. The location was ideal and had everything we needed. Sheri and Joe checked in with us to make sure we were settled and had everything we needed. We enjoyed lounging by the pool and hanging out with the dogs. I would stay again for sure. Other soccer parents were envious of the proximity to the socccer fields (Galway Downs) and wineries!

Beautiful serene cottage!
What an incredible rental! Just returned from a girls weekend at the cottage and we could not have found anything as wonderful as this for such a trip! The cottage had everything we could possibly need, it was so comfortable and beautifully decorated. The property was breathtaking! When we woke in the mornings, we watched the hot air ballons floating overhead. I fell in love with their animals, a couple of horses and some of the sweetest dogs you could ever meet (I’m missing Tyson already!). If you are not partial to dogs, there is a lovely fenced in patio with a conversation area and patio dining set, so they won’t bother you, if that’s what you prefer, but I loved having them around!
As far the location, it was also perfect! There were many wineries within 5 miles. We took an uber to Maurice Carrie, then another to Thornton then back to the cottage and our total uber costs were under $30.
We want to make this an annual trip! Although next time we want to come when it’s a little warmer. The pool looked so inviting!
This cottage is perfect for girls trips, a romantic couples getaway or even a small family.
Thank you Shari & Joe for a wonderful weekend!!!
Beautiful cottage with a very homey, cozy feel -- so relaxing!
My daughter and I took a "birthday wine tasting" trip and were so pleased with our choice of staying at the Cottage Haven. The cottage is well equipped and decorated beautifully. Everything was very clean and neat and the property is beautiful. The weather was a bit cool so we didn't get to sit outside as much as we would have liked but we definitely plan to return. Our hosts were extremely accommodating and made sure we had everything we needed. They even helped me with dinner recommendations! Can't wait to go back!
Beautiful, quiet and oh so perfect!
A girlfriend and I came from Houston tx to your some wineries. The place is so close to all the wineries and it’s perfect for a couple or two or three friends. Even got to meet their cute pups.
Joe and Shari have got the right idea here.
The Cottage Haven was the perfect place for our girls' getaway. It was clean, well stocked, and peaceful. Great location in the Temecula Wine Valley and close enough to local eateries and stores but still has the feel of being out in the country. Even though it is on Shari & Joe's property where they reside we still felt that we had privacy. Shari & Joe responded promptly to any questions and they were upfront with us prior to arrival about an issue that came up and rectified the situation in a very considerate way. We would definitely return!
