The guest cottage overlooks a cottage garden, with separate entrance and parking. Historically it was built as a water tower about 1900. The Rose Cottage has recently been remodeled, and is now a quiet retreat. The bedroom has a king bed and the living room a new queen bed sofa. You will find a completely equipped galley kitchen. A separate lavatory with washer - dryer, bathroom with a large shower. There is excellent wireless internet service. Guerneville is unique village on the Russian River with great restaurants and shops, surrounded by vineyards and great Wineries. You will be delighted by the wonderful river access or a short drive will take you to the ocean. Terrific hiking in Armstrong Woods and world class biking, followed by a lazy float down the river which runs through the Redwood forest. A great place for a long or short get away. The neighborhood is quiet but an easy stroll just a few blocks to the center of town.
If you come to Guerneville for one of the Vineman Triathlons, the special events, the music festivals, or just to relax you will never need to get in your car, you can walk down to the center of Guerneville.
Our house is close but not too close. We enjoy our guests who come from all over the world, but know how to give them privacy. We feel privileged to live in this beautiful spot. No pets please, they disturb our chickens! Come visit!
The cottage is separate from the main house by a garden and separate driveway. There is parking for one car, or two small cars off street next to the cottage. The parking is marked by a Large Metal Bird Sculpture. The cottage has a large covered porch and a small stone patio with a Weber charcoal kettle for your use.
Interaction with Guests
We enjoy our guests and are always available but hope to give guests all the privacy they would like.
Our hill is a quiet residential area with easy access to walk down to town. We have very friendly neighbors who like to interact with our guests as much as we do. The top of our hill has an interesting old cemetery which makes a nice after dinner walk.
It is an easy walk down one block to the main area of Guerneville. You can walk anywhere in town from Rose Cottage. Many guests park and never move their car again. Rose Cottage is a perfect spot for events and festivals, such as Vineman, The Russian River Jazz and Blues Festival, and Lazy Bear week.
No smokers please. No pets they disturb the chickens!
Kathleen met us when we arrived and gave us a thorough overview of the cottage and the neighborhood. The cottage was impeccably clean and tidy, with simple yet pleasant decor. I particularly liked how airy and light-filled it was (thanks to luge windows and several sky lights). The cottage is situated on a quiet residential street with very little traffic. It is only a 5 minute walk to downtown Guerneville. My husband and I slept on a fold out couch. I usually find them to be terribly uncomfortable, but this one had an inflatable topper. It was surprisingly nice!
We spent our anniversary weekend in the cottage. Our stay was perfect: the space is inviting, spotless, and well stocked.
The rose cottage is as sweet and cozy as it appears, a perfect getaway with all the amenities you might need and an easy walk to town for anything you might want to add. We didn't want to leave and hope to come back!
Listing description was accurate. The cottage was very charming, clean and comfortable. Well stocked kitchen, plenty of towels, blankets etc. 4 girls fit comfortably. Walking distance to the town and river which was really convenient. Book of stuff to do which was nice. We hiked one of the trails recommended which was very fun!
We did feel a bit 'close' to the host's home and there were several times where they came to our door to ask about something or invite us out. Super friendly, we just usually prefer a little more privacy rather than feeling like we are renting a room from someone.
Overall, great stay! We would come here again.
Kathleen was a wonderful host. She greeted me upon my arrival and made me feel welcome and at-home. The cottage was comfortable, clean, well-located, and very charming. And, Kathleen had prepared a great binder of useful information about the area: parks, restaurants, etc. I highly recommend staying at Kathleen and Ed's super cute cottage!
Everything was wonderful! Clean, lovely, cozy and couldn't have asked for a better location. Highly recommend!
This was a wonderful cosy cottage, presented as described and well suited to 2 couples. Great value and close to both town and the Armstrong Redwoods reserve. Kathleen was very friendly and provided some great local knowledge for enjoying our stay.
About the Host, Kathleen
We feel privileged to live in this gorgeous Russian River area. Sonoma County’s spectacular scenery gives us pleasure every day. There are magnificent redwoods on our property and I especially enjoy hiking at Armstrong Redwoods Park, only 2 miles from home. Our family owns the Bodega Bay Inn where we having enjoyed welcoming guests for years.
