Pleasant wooded oasis
Wonderful location… House was well-maintained and cozy. In the hot tub by the creek what is the best…kitchen could have had a little more cooking ware and spices, however, and Internet/wifi was not strong nor stable
Lovely, clean and gracious. Even nicer than the pictures!
Perfect for two couples. And it’s nice that there’s a creek outside. Would love to be here when the weather is nice. We loved our stay.
Comfy cozy quiet and cute little place in the woods.
This house was perfect for 2 couples that want to explore wine country. It was close by, yet very quiet with a small creek right in the back yard. The kitchen is fully stocked and so is the rest of the house with thoughtful details like a tissue box in every room and seasonal decorations. Everything in the home was in top shape, nothing needed repair or upkeep, a beautiful well kept home.
Perfect quaint cottage for a wine country weekend
We stayed here for a wine country weekend with another couple and it served our purposes perfectly. We used the hot tub both nights to relax after wine tasting and exploring the surrounding areas. We either drove or took Ubers to Kenwood (very close, within 5-10 mins) and Sonoma (farther - more like ~25 mins) and enjoyed how quiet and isolated the was serving as a home base when we weren't out and about on wine tastings or getting meals. Note that there is limited to no cell service at the house, but within 5 minutes drive you can get a good signal - we leveraged the wifi and had no issues with connectivity using that. Also only one bathroom but that never caused any problems for us, beyond taking a little more time to get ready in the mornings.
All in all, I'd highly recommend it for 1-2 couples. It was a great spot!
This a wine country gem!
This property is perfect for a couple or two couples who are very close. It is cozy and has all that you need for a perfect wine country stay. It is centrally located to all of the areas. The creek running beside it and the hot tub are added bonuses. The pictures do not do it justice and you will be pleasantly surprised when you walk in and appreciate all this property has to offer.
This is a great place!!!
This place is everything listed plus more, charming and spacious. We had 2 couples with plenty of room. It is evident that much thought and planning went into this renovation, beautifully done!!!
