Overview

About the property

Cozy cottage in the country with full kitchen, full bath, 1 queen bed

Sonoma County Transient Occupancy Permit #1503N

Parkside Cottage is a free-standing cabin located on a dead-end country lane, surrounded by nature yet only minutes from downtown Santa Rosa. Enjoy morning coffee on your private outdoor seating area, listening to the sound of songbirds and nearby Santa Rosa Creek. Walk or bike directly into Spring Lake Park and Annadel State Parks, Sonoma County's premier outdoor recreation spots. We are located at the gateway to Sonoma Valley, the famous Valley of the Moon, home to dozens of world-class wineries. Within a five-mile radius you can visit the tasting rooms of Ledson, St. Francis, Chateau St. Jean, and Kunde Estate, among others. At the end of a busy day of sight-seeing, relax in the hammock, or have a BBQ on the patio.

The cottage is small but arranged with a traveler's needs in mind. You will find counter space in the bathroom for your toiletries, a gadget recharging area, places to set down your suitcases and hang up your clothes.

The kitchen comes stocked with coffee, a selection of teas, hot chocolate, creamer, sweeteners, and condiments for preparing meals such as cooking oil, butter and spices, as well as a few food items for last minute meals like instant soup, instant oatmeal, and pasta. When in season, we provide fresh eggs from our chickens and produce from the garden. Kitchen includes a 2-burner gas stove, mini-fridge, microwave, coffee maker, toaster dishes and utensils.

The bed is a queen-size with memory foam mattress and 100% cotton sheets. If you are traveling with a child under 12, we can provide a foam pad for the floor and bedding for no additional cost. Sorry, but the cottage cannot accommodate more than two adults and one child.

Other amenities include:

• The full private bathroom is provided with soap, shampoo, conditioner, plenty of towels and a hairdryer.

• Iron and ironing board.

• WiFi access.

• Guidebooks and maps to local attractions, and menus to nearby restaurants.

• TV with DVD player and a selection of DVDs (no cable network).

•Air conditioning

About The Owner

Robin and Sim are lifelong artists, avid gardeners, and outdoor enthusiasts. In 2012 they retired from nearly 20 years of owning a retail art supply store in Santa Rosa. In addition to Parkside Cottage, they now own an art gallery in Santa Rosa, Chroma Gallery at 312 South A Street, Santa Rosa. http://chromagallery.net/

Sim teaches art classes and workshops at the gallery, and both enjoy working in their extensive organic garden, or hiking, biking & kayaking in nearby Spring Lake and Annadel Parks.

Sim is a native of Chicago, but after living in Sonoma County since the '70's he qualifies as a native. Robin is a native Californian hailing from the Monterey Peninsula, and has also lived in Sonoma County since the '70's.

Since 1994, they have been the careful stewards of their charming 1 acre property and are delighted to share it with visitors.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 1994

What makes this cabin unique

The location of our property lets us enjoy a natural setting while being close to town, which cuts down on the time spent driving. At home, with the sounds of the creek, the birds, and the closeness of the park, we always feel 'away from it all.'

Peace in town

  • 5 of 5

The Parkside Cottage experience was outstanding. Particularly appreciated was the sound of water & birdcalls without traffic or other urban noise, yet right in town!. Cleanliness, friendliness while respectful of privacy by the owner, and kitchen provisions was very good!

Sweet little cottage in garden setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Robin and Simmon's cottage! They are very organized and the cottage has everything you need for your stay, including a kitchen with some basic essentials. Although we didn't meet our hosts in person, they were very helpful along the way, including providing directions on how to get there. Thanks for a great place to stay for our weekend in wine country!

Nice Quiet Retreat

My husband and I stayed here while we were on a short business trip. It was peaceful, relaxing and super convenient to the surrounding wineries. I highly recommend this as a cozy place for a couple.

Very peaceful cottage, well decorated and surrounded by a vegetable and fruit garden and a small creek.

It is walking distance to a nice preserve/state park and minutes from downtown Santa Rosa.

The hosts are very welcoming.

Very Charming Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We visited Santa Rosa to celebrate a family birthday. We found the perfect spot to stay at Parkside Cottage, which was conveniently located to several places we were visiting. Our schedule was at the mercy of our companions which included a full day of events, so I wasn't able to confirm earlier in the day with our actual arrival time. Sim & Robin were completely flexible and when we rolled up around 10pm, Sim was out on the road to greet us, since the home and cottage are located on a narrow road. When we arrived, we could hear the sound of running water from the stream and were eager to see what awaited us when we awoke the next morning. When we opened the curtains, we discovered a beautiful garden with trees and flowers in bloom. My husband eagerly walked out to the stream, which appeared to be more of a river during our visit. Sim joined him and gave him a little history on their piece of paradise, which is filled with the gentle sound of birds chirping. The cottage was very clean, the bed was very comfortable and the cottage was comfortable to relax in and nicely decorated. We enjoyed a cup of tea as well as some pastries we had picked up earlier as we sat on the patio enjoying the view and delightful sounds of nature.

Thank you Robin and Sim. We look forward to returning!
