A canopy of shade and tranquility covers a furnished one bedroom cottage with kitchenette, a private bathroom with shower and plush towels, ceiling fan, and queen size bed in residential Sonoma. The bedroom has a contemporary feel beneath a cathedral ceiling and warm decor that provides a relaxing and restorative ambiance. Ample closet and storage space exist for your needs. Two century-old Oak and Sycamore trees grace the deck for pleasurable afternoon/evening reading.... Free and secure street parking in front is available. Comcast, DVD and Wifi capability (computer not provided). Additionally, we offer a reasonably priced, therapeutic massage with Kathryn, if you desire.
Our cottage is located about 2 miles from the historic town Plaza and within walking distance to charming shops, art galleries and restaurants. The Plaza hosts the Sebastiani Theater-one of the few remaining theaters that features independent films; the Mission San Francisco Solano de Sonoma-a historical building from the time of early California history; and a sampling of Sonoma's fine wineries and tasting rooms. The Plaza comes alive Tuesday evenings for the Farmer's Market where locals and tourists meet to shop for and sample fresh seasonal produce, enjoy picnics on the lawn and listen to live music of various genres.
In addition to the Plaza, Sonoma offers great trails for hiking, biking and nearby parks for exploration and relaxation. For those inclined to the "hands on experience", Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn and Spa is less than 10 minutes from the cottage.
Note: Sonoma County requires that we charge and collect a 9% "Transient Occupancy Tax". This has been included in the rate that you see on airbnb.
Hope to see you here!!
This place was awesome! Kathryn and Steve were the prefect hosts. Welcome wine and a healthy, fresh, and delicious breakfast were more than we could expect. It made our stay as comfortable as possible.
WOW! Nice place! Will stay again in future. Great location, Quite area. Great location to explore all the wine country. Highly Recommended!!!
We stayed in Kathryn & Steve's cottage at the end of a weekend getaway in Sonoma, and it was great! The cottage is adorable, clean, has wonderful light and everything we needed.
We both opted for massages with Kathryn and she is *excellent*. One of us is quite picky about massage and it's rare that we both walk away thrilled with the experience.
We'd certainly stay here again.
Kathryn and Steve were excellent hosts. They were very accommodating and understanding when our flight was delayed getting to Sonoma in the middle of the night. The cottage was gorgeous, very clean and well kept. The daily breakfast prepared with fresh cut fruit and bottle of wine upon arrival was perfect for our relaxing weekend away. I highly recommend this place for anyone looking to go to Sonoma and Napa as it is conveniently located by both. We will definitely look to go back to the cottage anytime we are in the area.
It is a lovely cottage, very cosy. Kathryn gave me an AMAZING massage that I highly recommend for other guests. Close to the square, about 7 minutes driving time. The picnic basket breakfasts they leave on your front porch are a very nice touch. Thank you!
Steve and Kathryn have gone above and beyond to ensure their guests have everything they need. There were sweet, little touches everywhere around the cottage that demonstrated their commitment as hosts. We loved the bottle of wine and chocolate/walnut mix we saw on arrival, and the continental breakfast was just what we needed to start our day. The shower is fantastic! Great water pressure! The bed has soft flannel sheets and we slept quite comfortably. Thank you for letting us stay in your wonderful cottage!
Kathryn and Steve were great hosts. Their bungalow behind their house was a perfect place for my girlfriend and I to stay while visiting the Sonoma and Napa valleys to go wine tasting and enjoy the sights. They are perfect AirBnB hosts and go out of their way to make their guests feel welcome and appreciated. They were friendly and left us the most adorable picnic basket full of everything needed for a simple breakfast for at the time time of our choosing each morning. Can't recommend them enough!
This is a great place to stay in Sonoma. The location is great- it's very close to Sonoma square and many, many great wineries and restaurants. They cottage is charming and stocked with towels, toiletries, and anything else you'd expect in a nice hotel. The owners were very nice and left us breakfast by the door each morning.
I would certainly recommend staying here.
This cottage is indeed cozy. My husband and I arrived too late and left too early to truly enjoy what this residence and these hosts offer. I wish we had been able to visit with Steve and Kathryn and to indulge in a massage.
The bed was extremely comfortable (especially the pillows--I like them soft and more flat than full. . . very hard to find that in hotels), the sheets were soft and warm. The decor was warm and pleasant. We both enjoyed hot showers and clean, soft towels.
An interesting selection of books and a small number of movies were available for guests and if we had stayed longer, I would have perused several of the books.
If I were offering a place to stay to guests, I would try to imitate what Steve and Kathryn have provided for the airbnb community.
This little guesthouse was the perfect hideaway for our three-night getaway. Our hosts, Kathryn and Steve, were very kind and friendly and quietly accommodated us with a delicious continental breakfast every morning...oh, and thank you again for the wine!...and provided us with every room necessity to make us feel welcome.
What we liked in particular was its central location, close to the town and its many fine restaurants, as well as the neighboring towns.
Most importantly, my boyfriend, Steve, who had never stayed at an Airbnb accommodation before, was THRILLED with his stay. He is a fitful sleeper and he slept like a baby. He was obviously comfortable and relaxed. Well done!
