Crow Cottage is newly rebuilt and decorated in an eclectic whimsical style by the artist owners. It is light and airy with a private shade deck and sunny patio.
Set on a country lane just a 5 min walk to 3 great restaurants & gourmet market.
The cottage has character and color. It is further enhanced by the original art by John which is placed throughout.
It is surrounded by private green areas.
At times it is rather crittery around here ,watching the birds and squirrels from the shade deck is fun. Raccoons, skunks and possums cruise through now and then. The cats wander here and there in the yard.
The location is exceptional. You are in a country setting yet just a stroll down the lane gets you to the excellent restaurants. The Glen Ellen Inn is cozy and excellent . Enjoy the free corkage at the Fig Cafe. The Glen Ellen Star is new, small and very lively. Have all the wine you want, walk back down the lane
No worries !
The kitchen has a microwave, toaster oven, electric kettle,full size sink and fridge, plus a dish washer. A barbecue is also available.
Interaction with Guests
We live in the main house at the front of the property.
If any one needs info or assistance with a situation we are happy to help.
Nearby is Jack London State park which is incredibly fascinating with more buildings open than ever before.
Glen Ellen is right next to Kenwood which is also great to explore, aside from outstanding wineries there is the Sugarloaf Park observatory where you can be free of lights and look through their telescopes with the docent astronomers.
A jeep tour company is based in Glen Ellen which is a lot of fun and reasonably priced. They will even take you out to the
Pacific Ocean . Open Air Jeep Tours (website hidden)
No Smoking inside !!!!! You can smoke whatever you like outside.
We arrived late to the cottage so we were not able to meet the hosts but this was a perfect spot for us to stay for the night. The cottage as many have mentioned is bright, fun, and comfortable with everything you need. There is also a coffee maker and grinder (I wish I would have brought our coffee beans) along with skillets and cooking ware for making breakfast if you so desire. As some advice to other guests who come in late (when it is dark) it can be challenging to see where the walkway to the cottage is located as the street is really small and dark. The walkway is to the right of the main house driveway. Use your cell phone flashlight. ;) Thank you very much to John and Della it was lovely!
This was one of the best experiences with AirBNB we've ever had. You can tell that there was so much attention to detail in this cottage. John is clearly the artist and I was so happy to see all the cat decor. When I saw the book on Unlikely Animal Friendships, I knew I was in the right place. That is a topic I'm obsessed with. The cottage is right near downtown Glen Ellen, the space is immaculate. My boyfriend and I can't wait to go back and hopefully stay longer that one night. Thank you!
Liam and I were in Napa for a show and were going to be arriving at the cottage around midnight. John and Della did an excellent job providing directions on how to get to their house and up to the cottage and left the light on for us so we would know (and could see) where to go. The cottage is beautiful. For some reason, in my mind, I thought it would be more like a studio than a one bedroom apartment, so I was pleasantly surprised to stay in such a luxurious cottage! John and Della have obviously put a good amount of time and thought into creating a beautiful home and cottage. The cottage is adorned with unique and vibrant paintings and has several nice amenities like a dishwasher, a heating system and a bed warmer. Even their hand soap was fantastic! Thanks again for having us!
Very nice place. Hosts are friendly and eager to share advice regarding the area. Cats are adorable too.
My husband and I had a great time in Sonoma!! The cottage was exactly as described - colorful, spacious and affordable ! Conveniently located close to everything. We ended visiting the winery Benzinger - a must see!! Much nicer than the ones off sonoma hwy. we would love to come come back.
