Our 2-BR cottage (sleeps 6) is a slice of heaven: peaceful & gorgeous on the deck or sitting in the hot tub, cozy inside by the fire! And, just minutes from the wineries, historic Sonoma square, great hiking & biking, and fabulous shopping+dining.

The Space

California Wine Country! Please come visit our beautiful cottage on its own acreage just fifteen minutes outside the historic town of Sonoma in the beautiful Valley of the Moon (Sonoma Valley, California).

We have room to sleep six. There are two bedrooms. One has a king-sized bed and the other has a queen-sized bed. The king-bedroom has its own private deck, and you can walk from that deck around the back of the house past the back gardens and hillside to the main back deck, where there is a large hot tub. The queen-bedroom is a former sunroom surrounded by windows that look out onto the hillside - very peaceful and sunny. In addition, we have a queen-sized futon that is comfortable for two adults and can be used in the living room or in the ante-room to the king-sized bedroom. The sheets for all of the beds are cotton and the beds all have great comforters, blankets and pillows. Please let us know if you are traveling with small children and we will have a port-a-crib for you.

On the back deck there is a big table for dining al fresco, and a large hot tub overlooking Winter Creek and our private hillside. There are trees for shade in the summer and the creek is rushing in the winter.

There is one bathroom with marble-tiled shower and lots of light.

There is a wood-burning stove in the living room, as well as a baby grand piano and an ipod cradle, plus a huge picture window of the Sonoma Valley. So, you can take your pick from a completely wired to a completely unplugged vacation, or a little of both.

The kitchen is large and has everything you'll need to cook great meals and to eat: gas stove, dishwasher, water filter, refrigerator & freezer, plates, glasses, lots of wine glasses, mugs, pots, pans, etc.

There is a washer/dryer and laundry soap if you need it.

We are five miles from Sonoma town. This area of the countryside is incredibly beautiful. Our neighbors include a few friendly people on our private road, as well as the horses at the ranch next door, and the sheep across the driveway. The only sounds you are likely to hear are those sheep, and the donkeys braying in the distance.

Even though we are out in the country, we have internet access, a flat screen TV with cable and on demand, and all of the other usual amenities of civilization.

And of course the best part is that we are in the middle of the California Wine Country. Sonoma is known for its terrific vintages, and also for its farm-to-table restaurants and farmers markets. Every day is a feast here in our little corner of the world. We'd love to have you join us here!

Please note that we do have a two-night minimum on holiday weekends like MLK weekend, Presidents' weekend, Memorial Day weekend, and Labor Day weekend, as well as during the holidays.

Guest Access

The Cottage and its amazing grounds, including the deck, hot tub and surrounding gardens, will be all yours for your private Sonoma retreat.

  • I stayed at Winter Creek Cottage for my low-key bachelorette party and we loved it. Judi was very quick to respond and left good directions (and a bottle of wine on the table, which was great!). I also definitely loved that they had a lot of information regarding wineries in the area. Overall, I very much enjoyed my stay!

  • Winter Creek Cottage is wonderful! A few of my friends and I stayed for two nights for a girls weekend and it was perfect. The property is beautiful, the cottage is nicely decorated, comfortable and the hot tub is an added plus. Although it's secluded, it's not too far a drive to the plaza. Judi and Carl were great hosts and we even got to meet them briefly and they were a pleasure. We hope to stay here again sometime! :)

  • The Winter Creek Cottage is exactly like the photos - cozy, well appointed rental with all the amenities for a long weekend getaway or an extended vacation. The cottage is located about 8 minute drive from the main road through Sonoma and hidden from any traffic noise.

    The kitchen was well supplied with all requirements for cooking and dinning. There are even chill wine sleeves in the freezers! The hot tub was in great working order.

    Judi was super responsive to our question about login into the wifi network- although I didn't really make time to surf the web. All in all a great place to stay.

  • Winter Creek Cottage is set in very picturesque surroundings. Judi provided detailed instructions on how to get there and was extremely helpful with any of our queries. She happily supplied us with some oil when we realised we didn't have any to cook with!

  • Wonderful cottage, lots of nice touches and lovely location. Didn't get a chance to meet Judi in person but she was a pleasure to deal with. My wife wants to make a habit of visiting here! :)

  • My friends and I really love Judi and Carl's place. It's so beautiful and comfortable,the hot tub in the backyard is so cool! We wish we could stay more days in there! We follow (website hidden) map and the instruction provided by Judi and Carl, there is no difficult to find the right way : )Sonoma downtown is only 5 min drive distance and we bought some foods from the Wholefood market and made ourselves a dinner.
    Thanks Judi and Carl again for letting us stay at your fabulous place.

  • I can't say enough positive things about our experience staying in Judi's beautiful house. We had 5 people, including a toddler stay for several days and nobody felt crowded. The sofas and beds were all extremely comfortable, and we could hang out on the porch or living room for hours. One of the best Airbnb experiences I've had.

    March 2014
  • The place was great, secluded but less than 5 miles from downtown Sonomoa. It was very cozy, great view of woods and had wonderful space for toddlers to crawl around. Judi also provided us with a Pack & Play crib which came in handy. Would recommend this place.
