About Lynn Wilshire
We are both wine lovers. John has made wine with purchased grapes for many years and after our marriage in 2013 we decided to chase our dream of planting a vineyard to make our own estate wines. We found this property with 2 1940's vintage homes after an exhaustive search and moved 2 households from Southern California to beautiful Sonoma County that Fall. Although we have accomplished a tremendous amount, we are happy to say that our vision will keep us busy for many years to come. We love the opportunity to share all that is wonderful about Sonoma living with new guests and old friends!
Lynn Wilshire purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why Lynn Wilshire chose Southwest Santa Rosa
Great location! Centrally located in Sonoma County, we are equal distance between the Pacific Ocean and Napa County. Close to the city (San Francisco is less than an hour away)but with the beauty of the country, our farm is an easy bike ride to quaint Sebastopol or Santa Rosa. We can taste wonderful wines, food, beer, and wander beautiful Redwood Forests within minutes of our home.
What makes this Cottage unique
We have a large garden with herbs, vegetables, berries and fruit trees all available to our guests (in season)who enjoy cooking their own meals. We make wine in our little winery building and love to share the process and a few tastes with interested guests.

Country garden cottage in Santa Rosa
We had a very nice 4-day vacation in Santa Rosa. The cottage is very cozy and well stocked. Lynn and John went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. They also provided breakfast items— milk, butter, and an awesome home-baked zucchini-plum bread. The garden setting was unique and very peaceful.
Great location, great cottage
The cottage was conveniently located- in the country but a short UBER ride to the fairgrounds. It was clean and very comfortable. John and Lynn could not have been nicer or more accommodating. They thought of everything! Even a bottle of their award-winning wine. The hot tub and fire pit were bonuses! We live in Florida, so odds are we won't be in this neck of the woods again, but we highly recommended it to our friends who live in the area.
Absolutely loved our time in Santa Rosa - will be back again. Lynn was a gracious host and the property was exactly as described. I was impressed with how well stocked the kitchen / living space was. Thank you again for hosting, we'll be back!
A Perfect Trip
Lynn and John are two of the kindest folks you’ll meet! They gave us a private tasting of the wine they made on the property. They also go well out of their way to make sure you and your guests will be comfortable. For example, we made pizza one night, and they let us use their pizza stone! I can’t say enough good things about this spot :)
Lovely cottage tucked away from the street with sounds of nature to wake up to. Completely stocked with anything anyone could need, including swimsuits for the hot tub if you forget yours!
We weren't there long enough to enjoy the serene backyard and firepit in the evening, but its all there. If you like quaint and charming and off the beaten path this is a good choice.
Five stars are not enough. Ten stars would be closer
Our family has stayed in seven houses in three different states and Lynn and John's cottage is by far the most comfy, cozy and homey, like staying with good friends. The kitchen was well equipped and fully stocked with the necessities. The patio with the hot tub and view of the beautiful flower and fruit garden is the pinnacle of relaxation. Sharing their wine and spending the evening visiting with them was certainly a highlight of our trip. This house is definitely a must-stay-here.
