About this listing
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.

Our stay at Crow Cottage was perfect.
We floated in with the hosts, John and Della, having made it perfectly simple to enter the cottage and feel right at home.
We were both charmed and enchanted by the whimsical garden and colorful cottage.
The esthetic was bright and refreshing. Our stay was peaceful and delightfully restful. We loved sitting in the garden and reviling in the playful art.
Looking forward to many happy returns.
This was our first Airbnb experience and it was awesome.
The cottage was well appointed, loaded with art, and surprisingly spacious. We spent most of our time on the patio and enjoying the weather, birds, and our wine or coffee. Everywhere you look is another piece of art! John, the host, was welcoming and friendly. Highly recommend a stay in Glen Ellen at the Crow Cottage.
We loved being so close to 3 great restaurants and the local gourmet market. Try the Glen Ellen Star and sit at the counter!
John and Della were wonderful hosts. I felt very welcome and comfortable. The cottage is adorable!! Very warm and cheerful. John's an artist and his art combined with Della's flare just makes it so charming and special. The bed was also very comfy!
We positively love this place! So cute, great outdoor space, walking distance to a handful of restaurants and tasting rooms (try the organic wine at Laurel Glen next door!), but also a very well appointed gourmet market about a block or two away.
The kitchen and living area are quite comfortable and convenient. The rooms were spotless. The art, quite entertaining. It was such a pleasure to make a cup of coffee or tea and sit outside on the patio and listen to the birds.
This is an excellent location if you plan on visiting wineries in Glen Ellen or Kenwood. Your hosts will make you feel quite at home.
Highly recommended! I would eagerly return and have already suggested it to friends.
The little cottage was incredibly charming, and we could have happily spent much longer just relaxing in the adorable backyard patio (lots of cats for any cat lovers!)
John and Della had also stocked the house with anything we could have needed. We didn't make it there, but the Benziger winery was also walking distance from the house. A wonderful experience from start to finish.
The cottage was very comfortable and very charming. -Very artsy!! Unfortunately, we did not spend a lot of time in the cottage so did not get to meet John and Della. I would have loved to have met them because I think John was the artist. He creates metal animal caricatures that are so whimsical. I am so glad we had the opportunity to stay at the Crow Cottage and hope to have the chance to come back again.
It was lovely and everything was as described. Thank you for the great communication and the wonderful space.
