Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Michelle and Oso,

We enjoyed our stay very much! From the moment we walked in the door, we felt the love and care that went into the designing the cottage . What a delightful sight to see fresh flowers with a welcome note, a bottle of wine, cheese and crackers, and a bright, cheerful kitchen filled with everything to make us feel right at home! Your attention to detail was exceptional... thanks you so much! I love how fresh and new the cottage feels.. Delightful! And your wine choice... excellent. Thanks again

Lovely, cozy cabin perfect for your stay in wine country

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for a second time at this beautiful, cozy cabin on the outskirts of Sebastopol near Forestville. This 2 story house is clean and comfortable and while perfectly secluded, it is not too far from wineries, stores, and a walking trail. There is a really nice deck with table, chairs and a BBQ if you are fortunate to be in the area when the weather is warm. The owners are friendly and helpful if you need anything. We will be back!

Weekend in western Sonoma County

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place for a couple. The deck is especially nice as it is surrounded by trees. We lucked out because this was the weekend when the fires were burning, but the winds kept the smoke away from this cottage. The wineries we went to were very appreciative of the fact that we came up despite the fires. My only recommendation is that there be more light in the living room. There's plenty of windows, so in the daylight, it is fine. But at night and the early morning, it's pretty dark in there.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review. I hope you used the complementary wine passes that I have for guests. The local wineries are so appreciative when guests love the wine and support our beautiful Sonoma County. My husband and I were in New England so we missed greeting you, maybe next time. We are nestled in here so that's why it is dark at night and in the first am. The great thing is the beautiful moon and stars that you can see. Best, Michelle

Nicer in person and super clean

  • 4 of 5

Overall the place is lovely, clean and bright.

Pros: the bed is comfortable, the kitchen is well appointed, the living room is roomy and the outside patio is great. Jacuzzi tub, linens throughout and cleanliness is great. The cottage actually looks better in person than in the pictures. Being in the bedroom upstairs makes you feel like you're in a treehouse (in a good way).

Cons: the shower head is less than 100%. Water pressure is fine but came out at weird angles and all on one side of the shower head. This is an easy fix and was kind of annoying.

The coffeemaker does not work. Either the filters are the wrong size or it just is old and tired. Based on the information provided I figured I could enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning and then wasted 2 batches of expensive beans (that I purchased) on trying to make it work. Made a huge mess on the counter b/c the machine flooded brown water all over the place. Also seems like an easy fix.

Owner's Response: Cindy, I appreciate your review as to future guests. I will definitely check the shower. The coffee maker, however works fine as I brewed some beans and enjoyed a great cup of coffee. I'm pleased overall that you had a great time. Michelle
