About the property

Beautifully Furnished, Quiet 1 Bedroom Cottage for 2 People

Welcome to your California Wine Country Vacation Home! Sonoma Rosso is located on the Highway 12 Wine Trail in beautiful Kenwood, in California's Sonoma Valley, approximately one hour north of San Francisco. The scenery is gorgeous - from vineyards and wide open fields studded with ancient oaks to rolling hills and dramatic mountains. The property has an historic stone ranch house, two cottages and an art studio. There is an organic garden, large saltwater pool and other amenities for our guests to enjoy in season.

We invite you to stay in the Sonoma Rosso Guest Cottage, a completely private, freestanding 624 sq. ft. cottage across the pool from the main house on the property. Split plantation shutters provide plenty of light and privacy day and night. The cottage is brand new from foundation through furnishings. There are individual heaters in each room and ceiling fans in the living room and bedroom.

The guest cottage features a living room with 42 inch flat screen internet-enabled HDTV. A separate eat-in kitchen is stocked with cookware, small appliances, serving ware, bar and glassware. The cabinets are filled with kitchen basics and spices for cooking. There is a picnic basket for you to use on outside excursions. If you would like us to pre-shop for groceries, we can make arrangements with you prior to your arrival.

The bedroom is a peaceful retreat with a queen-size pillow-top bed, with cotton sheets, your choice of pillows, blanket and duvet. Individual nightstands with reading lamps and storage drawers have built-in USB chargers for your phone or tablet. There is a vanity table, full-length mirror and closet.

The en-suite bath features a deep soaking tub and shower combination. The handheld shower has adjustable jets. Stacks of towels and terrycloth velour spa robes are included.

We are typically on the property in the main house and will greet you and show you around. There is a private patio outside the cottage for your enjoyment - with table and chairs, umbrella and a gas barbecue grill. The grounds of the property are a shared space. You are welcome to enjoy fresh fruit and vegetables from the organic garden and swim the pool during the warmer months. There is a second cottage on the property with a full-time resident who does not use the common area. There is a laundry room available on the property.

There are more than two dozen wineries and tasting rooms nearby, including St. Francis, Chateau St. Jean, VJB, Ty Caton, Landmark, Kenwood, Kunde, and Ledson. There are many notable restaurants a short drive from the property and three Michelin star restaurants in Sonoma County. We are located 13 miles north of Sonoma Plaza and 5 miles south of the Calistoga Road which leads over the hill to the Napa Valley.

We are a fully permitted vacation rental. Sonoma County TOT #1402N and we collect a Sonoma County Tourism Tax of 12%. A separate cleaning fee of $75 is charged per visit. Daily housekeeping is not included. If you are staying longer than a week, we will provide a clean set of bed linen and towels. During the high season (May - October) there is a two week maximum stay.

About Linda Rosso

We are long-time San Francisco Bay Area residents who love to share this beautiful place with visitors. We are happy to recommend our favorites and new discoveries with you!

Linda Rosso purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Linda Rosso chose Kenwood

We were struck by the perfect location - the front garden looks onto Hood Mountain and Sugarloaf Ridge and has amazing sunsets and moonrises - after all, Sonoma Valley is also known as The Valley of The Moon.

What makes this cottage unique

The Sonoma Rosso Guest Cottage decor features brand new, custom, antique and one-of-a-kind pieces. We want you to feel at home, and have provisioned the cottage with everything you might need for your Sonoma vacation - from three varieties of bed pillows to a magnified make-up mirror to built-in USB chargers to a gas-grill and a picnic basket. We've stayed in wonderful vacation rentals and have taken notes!

Wonderfully peaceful vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed in properties all over the world and this gorgeous cottage in Sonoma Valley takes the cake! Sonoma Rosso provides everything you could imagine in a vacation rental, and is very deserving of their 5-star rating. If I could give 10 stars, I would! All the little details have been thought of and we were never left wanting for anything.

Linda is very communicative and incredibly sweet. She made my birthday week celebration even better with some thoughtful birthday surprises at check-in. The cottage is in a convenient location and the property is a dream. The pool was fantastic to cool off in the warm weather after a day of wine-tasting and exploring.

Within the first 30 minutes of our visit, my husband asked me if we could stay at Sonoma Rosso forever and that sentiment never changed :) We look forward to a future stay here!

Anniversary trip

  • 5 of 5

Wow! Linda's place is picturesque. What a relaxing, cozy place to end our trip. Linda has thought of everything you could ever need and her hospitality is top notch. She even got a bottle of champagne for my husband and I to celebrate our anniversary. Her directions were spot on as were her recommendations. If we visit wine country again we will definitely be staying here! Highly recommend for a getaway for two!!
