There is also a flagstone patio with another sitting area in the sunshine it is wonderful on those days you want to just enjoy the sun the flowers and the quiet.. except for the birds and the squirrels. The yard is filled with 400 yr old Valley Oak trees and offers a Wonderful 'ZEN' like setting. These words are how most of my guests have described the yard and most say they don't want to leave even for dinner as they want to spend time in the garden and patio. I have flowers in the yard year-round as gardening is my hobby so it is always easy for me to make it beautiful as I love it. The patio and garden area is surrounded by little white mini lights in the evening for a magical feel .
This cottage is for people used to only the best. I have hosted two PGA Golf PRO's while they played the Charles Scwhab Cup Champions tournament. They both wrote nice reviews and loved my attention to detail. Ask me who they are?
Evening times you can hear the sound of crickets from the nearby Sonoma Creek and either that or the waterfall will lull you to sleep...I am a designer/developer in Lake Tahoe and put my experience to work in making this a perfect wine country getaway!!!
READ the reviews and you will see how very special this cottage is.
We are both in the real estate business David full time realtor Helen a developer/designer in Tahoe. We have been in this business most all of our lives and own and manage other properties ..We know what we expect when we travel and we try to do the same with the first class amenities we provide and the immaculate condition we have the cottage in for each guest.. David was born in SF and grew up in Redding CA where he was a fire Captain for CDF. He retired early to join Helen in the sales business. I was raised in Los Gatos CA where I worked with the family business of development and property management ..
We love to travel and go to new places but enjoy Maui the most!! We have traveled a lot and look forward to more but mostly we love to golf and travel to places where we can play the local and resort courses. We love Sonoma area for the golf and the closeness to the SF area as we love the theatre also.
Helen Tanner purchased this cottage in 2005
We love the convenience of the property to all the wineries and the Sonoma Square. It is within walking distance for our guests and the wineries are within five min from the cottage. The cottage is in a quiet neighborhood.
We love our little cottage and you will find that it shows and it has a warm and happy feeling the min you walk thru the door!! We have some guests who have returned to visit our cottage now as many as six times.. When you walk in the front door you can see out to thru the big French doors the beautiful yards with big large old oaks and the white roses that climb the fence, the flowers and the big fig and meyer lemon tree. Truly a gorgeous sight. The quiet is Zen like and some have called it my "little slice of heaven" it truly is.
Come and stay and see for yourself!!
A wonderful stay in your beautiful warm home!! Thank you and I hope we can make it back!!

We were looking to have a family weekend in the Sonoma area with daughter, son-in-law, 12 year old grandson and their golden retriever. Decent hotels are expensive, and hard to accommodate a kid and a dog. I was a little nervous renting "sight unseen" - I needn't have been.. The "cottage" (it is really quite spacious) is clean and nicely furnished, clearly Helen's personal home and beautifully decorated. The kitchen is so well equipped, it has everything you could possibly need. The bedrooms are large with comfortable beds and nice bedding. Bathrooms are terrific, great showers. The back yard garden is unbelievable- so peaceful and serene. Several comfortable seating areas. And just a great location, very quiet neighborhood but just a mile from town. Close to "a million" wineries, and 15 minutes to the Sonoma Raceway (our destination this weekend). We really wished that we had had more time. Daughter is already planning a ""girls weekend"! Thank you, Helen, for making our Getaway so pleasurable - we will definitely return.
Helen's house was everything advertised and more. From the moment we arrived until we sadly had to leave the house was perfect. We found everything we needed and more. After a day out visiting wineries we looked forward to returning to the house. We were there for seven days and used the fire pit every evening and spent a lot of evenings grilling out. The beds were fantastic and my wife and friends thought that the kitchen was on the money. Our trip was about wine country but we fell in love with Sonoma. The food, the plaza, and the people were fantastic. Thank you Helen for everything your house made our trip special.
My husband and I shared this lovely bungalow with our relatives and we were so happy with every bit of this adorable cottage. There was nothing we wanted for and the peace and serenity that were offered, from the garden, to the gathering room were exceptional! Everything was furnished for our comfort and the only thing we added were a few groceries since we enjoyed a couple of evenings cooking outdoors on the grill. Very thankful for Helen, her vision, and her attention to detail!!
We just returned from a three night stay. That bit of trepidation we all have as we unlock the front door on a new rental immediately melts away. Helen’s cottage is beautifully decorated and in a fashion that says, “You’re home…it’s time to rest, relax and enjoy”. The living room and bedrooms are beautiful. The kitchen offers everything you need and the back garden is an absolute oasis of tranquility. Highly recommended.
We travel a lot and have stayed in many vacation rentals. This home is charming, comfortable, super clean, and the perfect place to relax with our family. The outdoor space is especially wonderful, with gardens, and fireplace, 2 seating areas besides a table under an umbrella. The owners were exceptionally responsive and caring. Highly recommended!
I have stayed in many rentals from Napa to Tahoe and this was one of the nicest. It looks EXACTLY like the pictures. It is clean, comfortable, and near downtown. The bedrooms are very nicely appointed with very soft, high quality sheets and pillow top mattresses. The bath off of the back bedroom has an amazing shower and everything was clean. Just about the best possible stay I have ever had. Beautiful backyard with fruit trees and grills (Webber) and a fire pit. Wonderful house, I would rent it again in a second!
World Class Restaurants, Winetasting, Wonderful boutique shopping downtown Sonoma Square and Napa Outlet Stores, golf and world class spa,Wineries within five min of the cottage.
