Mary was very nice and welcoming and generous. The phonic isolation of the house was very good. Even if the weather was really hot, the cabin temperature stayed cool.
We have appreciated to see Eve, the cat, she is, as her owner, really sociable and welcoming.
We had such a nice time at Mary's cottage. It was the perfect size for three girls on a winey weekend getaway. Mary had everything we needed - beds, kitchen appliances, clean shower, television, and a beautiful porch with flowers and a lovely view. The cottage was tucked away but also just a short drive to the Oxbow market and lots of wineries. Had a great time, thanks Mary!
What a nice little place to stay in Sonoma County! The house is comfortable and very clean. The living area is small, but if you are a small family, it is enough. The bedrooms are comfortable and warm with the space heaters. There is traffic noise from the highway, which is very close to the house, but not enough to bother us, and once inside the house, we didn't notice it. The location is convenient for being so rural--it's near the small town of Cotati, with a fantastic grocery store to pick up supplies and a quick meal, as well as just a few minutes from Petaluma. Mary was very helpful, and there are plenty of nice touches inside to make us feel welcome. The kitchen is well stocked. The kids' movies were a huge hit with my two small children!
Mary's cottage is exactly as pictured except more adorable. Everything was perfectly clean and orderly and the whole space was so comfortable and welcoming. Mary is an excellent host and really went out of her way to communicate with me and be flexible about my arrival time. Highly recommended!
Mary was a wonderful host! We arrived late at night and she was there to meet us and explain the ins and outs of the cottage. The cottage was furnished beautifully and it had everything you needed to feel at home. The back porch has a great view and is very relxing!!
Mary is one of the most considerate hosts I've ever encountered! She was extremely helpful in guiding us to the house, suggesting places to explore nearby and even printing out maps for us. The location on Old Redwood Hwy is easy to find and very accessible to SF, Pt Reyes, Sonoma & Napa. The cottage itself is very charming and very nicely kept - Mary ensured there was tons of fresh linen and towels for all four of us and the kitchen had all amenities. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mary's and highly recommend her to airbnb travellers!
We loved staying at Mary's home while on a family vacation to wine country! It is very private and separate from her building so the five of us felt like we were in our own little world. The back area and garden was perfect for our dog to through and Mary was extremely accomodating and professional the whole time. She bent over backwards to make sure we found the place and was a very gracious host!
I wholeheartedly recommend this place to anyone looking for a convenient place to visit the Sonoma area. Will be looking forward to my next visit!
