The Space

Charming, newly remodeled cottage in the middle of California Wine Country. Just over an hour from San Francisco, this two bedroom, one bath home is within walking distance of highly rated restaurants, wine tasting rooms, spas, and of course wineries! The house is located right across the street from a park, features a gigantic outdoor living space, completely fenced-in with multiple outdoor seating areas, and outdoor kitchen area and barbecue grill. The house is a perfect get-a-way for two couples!

The Neighborhood

Our little neighborhood is one of Sonoma's best kept secrets. Kenwood is a small, unincorporated town between Sonoma and Santa Rosa. Route 12 is the main road that goes through this town and it is surrounded by the hills and wineries. Our neighbors are amazing people and we feel fortunate to have such caring people living next door. The local businesses have added a great value to our neighborhood and we appreciate them investing in Kenwood.

  • I can not recommend this cottage highly enough if you are looking for the perfect base from which to explore Sonoma & Napa. Every amenity you could think of needing is in this tastefully decorated place. There are vineyards on your doorstep but it was just as tempting yo sit outside in the gorgeous yard & soak up the serenity.

  • Peter's wine country cottage is everything promised in the listing and more. The backyard is idyllic, perfect for sitting out in the sun while enjoying a book or a glass of wine; the outdoor grill area is lovely, too. The interior is clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated.

    The location is ideal, walking distance to wineries and food establishments and a 10-minute drive from many other wineries.

    Lastly, Peter was a helpful and communicative host who provided clear instructions for the house. We hope to be back!

  • There aren't enough superlatives in my vocabulary to describe how incredible this spot is. We couldn't have dreamed up a more wonderful home for our first trip to the wine country -- from the tremendous curb appeal and awesome backyard to the comfortable beds and luxurious appointments. It was the perfect home base to tour the region and the owners left us so many incredible suggestions, all of which were home runs. I can't recommend this place enough and am so thankful for the wonderful memory of this weekend.

  • Our stay at the Wine Country Cottage was blissful. It exceeded our expectations, providing much needed respite, comfort and peaceful privacy. This was our first experience in wine country, and we must admit, the area didn't disappoint. With walkable, and wonderful experiences with local wineries and restaurants, we couldn't get enough! We visited the exceptional Kenwood Restaurant and Bar numerous times during our brief stay -- we felt like regulars. Other establishments were happily sampled as well, with additional shopping jaunts to Calistoga and Napa Valley.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Wine Country Cottage, and undoubtedly will return again.

  • This is a wonderful cottage in the town of Kenwood. It is within walking distance to few tasting rooms and eateries. The cottage is located on a peaceful street, is well decorated and very relaxing. The backyard is beautiful and makes for a fun place to sip wine during the day, barbecue or hold evening conversation. I would highly recommend staying here for your visit to wine country. Peter was a wonderful host and very responsive to any questions we had leading up to our trip and also provided some great eating/drinking recommendations.

  • What a perfect stay!! Such a lovely home! I can't think of anything we were missing, except maybe a longer stay!! The house was so clean and comfortable! The yard was perfect for a bbq or just a relaxing afternoon in the hammock! The kitchen was a chefs dream!! The host was so generous leaving us a bottle of wine and so helpful during our stay with places to eat/shop ect.....The beds were so comfortable, and it was so peaceful both day and night. There were stunning views from every room! I can't wait to return!! Cheers! Marea Pasquesi

  • We had a wonderful trip to Napa to celebrate my wife's birthday and Peter's house was the perfect location. This was my first airbnb experience and Peter has set the bar high. The house itself was lovely, well equipped especially in the kitchen, and of a very high standard. Booking was also super quick, painless and professional. Highly recommend anyone considering staying here to go ahead as you won't be disappointed.
