Interaction with Guests
We hold down the fort! We are usually home but respect your privacy. If you want to chat we'll chat.
Other Things to Note
The property is fully gated and requires us to be available to greet you upon arrival. Once here we will provide a gate opener to come and go as you please.
We keep our home clean at all times and expect the same from our guests. We have worked very hard for what we have and really hope simple old fashion "respect" is enough to trust persons in our home. Also, during the week one of us works from home so it is important to keep the volume down after 10pm. Guests that rent the house will enjoy total privacy. There is a $50 cleaning fee for house rentals and a $20 for detached private unit rentals. Please enjoy our home! It is important to us you have a great time so please feel free to pick our brains for suggestions.
Mindy and Ray were great hosts-- they were super nice and friendly and have a very cute friendly dog! Their house was great and the rooms were comfortable. The location was also perfect for us, we were attending a seminar at the Culinary Institute and it was right around the corner! I hope to stay there again!
Mindy & Ray were great hosts. They greeted us when we arrived and showed us around, and make recommendations for good restaurants nearby. We had a lovely night in their little cabin. The noise from the road was noticeable during the busier times but not too disruptive. We had a very pleasant stay!
We booked their cottage last-minute, and Mindy and Ray were very welcoming, and flexible in meeting us. Their property is wonderful, and they invited us to explore the nooks and crannies. Do note that the guest bathroom is in the main house, so you'll need your slippers and bathrobe if you get up in the middle of the night.
Their home is located very near St Helena, less than a mile and a half from the downtown restaurants, with easy access to a slew of wineries. It is on a turn with quick traffic, so be careful to miss it.
We would definitely stay again.
My girlfriend and I were in dire straights and needed a place to stay last minute. Our phones were not working properly and we had tons of trouble with simply making a reservation, but Ray and Mindy were extremely patient and accommodating. The location was very easy to find and was exactly as described. It was a very nice little cabin style room, completely separate and private from their main house. We would definitely recommend this location to others looking for a simple and comfy location to rest for the evening, or even a few!
Mindy and Ray have such a beautiful home! It was very clean and also very close to everywhere we wanted to go. We had total privacy and were super comfortable the whole time. Additionally we got to play a couple rounds of Bocce ball and they even had an espresso maker in the room. It was perfect for a quick weekend getaway.
Cozy cottage with access to main house, Mindy and Ray were helpful and friendly, made us feel at home. Definitely recommendable to those visiting the area and wanting a more authentic experience, especially if they like the tiny house concept like I do!
Lovely spot, Mindy and Ray are very gracious hosts.
The Cottage is very small, but nicely done. The location is right near town.
