We are located in the heart of the California Wine Country, there are dozens of wineries within minutes of the cottage. However Sonoma has many other charms, many places of importance in early California history, such as the northernmost of California's famous Spanish missions, St. Francis Solano Mission on the Plaza, only three blocks from the cottage. Our restaurants are many, varied and close by, indeed many visitors don't get into their cars for days at a time.

What makes this cottage unique
Unique benefits: the cottage is accessible by foot to historic Sonoma Plaza, downtown shops and restaurants and wine tasting rooms. It also has an old-fashioned charm that our guests appreciate. For all our safety we will observe all the protocols of social distancing and mask wearing when we come together. There is a small bottle of 70% alcohol-based spray for your use, if you need more I can refill the bottle, just ask. All surfaces and knobs, handles, toilet flusher, shower handles, lamp switches, door keys and TV Remote have been sprayed with the disinfectant. You are also free, indeed encouraged, to bring any disinfecting products you like. And because we want to take every precaution for the good health of our guests we ask that you leave your shoes on the front porch while you are here.
