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.

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.

John and Della's cottage in a Glen a Ellen was amazing! It's only a short walk to town and about 20 minutes from Sonoma. We were in town to soak in the Napa/Sonoma experience and this place was the cherry on top. The drive thru the valleys to and from their cottage is incredibly picturesque. The skylight in the bedroom makes you feel like your sleeping under the stars. Loved it here!
Crow Cottage is an awesome place to stay. It's exactly as pictured. John and Della really have it sewn up in terms of location (quaint wine country village), atmosphere ( the cottage is decoated with wonderful art and the whole effect is charming) and comfort ( good heater, comfortable bed, lots of hot water and great pressure in the shower. It also nestled in their quiet back yard, surrounded by terraces, patio furniture and scuptures. We are Airbnb hosts and use Airbnb often when we travel but this was a peak Airbnb experience.
The cottage was exactly as pictured on the airb&b and my hosts were extremely welcoming and helpful. I had a comfortable night's sleep under the watchful eye of a crow (from the painting) and it is a quiet place with privacy and handy for local village supermarket for food and amnesties. It is clean and eclectic. You do need to remember the torch as impossible to negotiate the road to cottage without it once it gets dark. I am glad I found this place. Thank you John and Della
We really enjoyed our 1 night stay in the cottage. Check in was a breeze. The cottage was clean and super cute as you can see from the pictures. We loved being so close to Glen Ellen. I would definitely stay here again. Bring bug spray if you want to enjoy the outdoor space.
Beautiful place in an amazing location. Great communication from hosts, while also giving us space. Can't wait to come back.
Wow. What a lovely getaway! Came here from Marin with an old friend for relaxation, hiking and sleep. We got all of the above without leaving the cottage too much. Easy check in with key left in kitchen for us. Didnt interact with hosts at all and that was just fine. We didn't need anything.
The place was very well stocked, the bed and pillows were SO comfy(bed had heating pads on it; one for each side of bed!!), I even pulled the pillow out of its many covers to find out what brand. Going to buy a few for my husband and me.
The art made us laugh and ponder. It caught us by surprise on many occasions. Couldn't stop looking around and staring. Took many pics.
Loved the dirt road walk to downtown. Hiking at Jack London was lovely and serene. We hiked for a few hours up. Great views and meadows.
Slept well and sincerely loved the place. Will be back with my husband as soon as we can get away from the kids! Such a unique, quaint and quiet experience. Just what I was looking for.

Highly recommend the Crow Cottage! Super cute, well maintained, and walking distance to town with yummy restaurants and tasting rooms. The hosts were very welcoming and helpful! Look forward to staying there again in the future.
