A minimum of 24 hours after deep cleaning is observed before a new guest arrives. ***THANK YOU Relax and unwind in a brand new, poolside guest cottage on a private compound just off the Highway 12 Wine Trail in Kenwood. The Sonoma Valley scenery is gorgeous - from vineyards and wide open fields studded with ancient oaks to rolling hills and dramatic mountains. Your home away from home features a peaceful, separate bedroom 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. Stacks of towels and soap are included.Your living room has a large, comfortable sectional couch, club chair and 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. 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 approximately 20 minutes from Sonoma Plaza, 30 minutes from Healdsburg, 30 minutes from the Napa Valley and one hour north of San Francisco. It's the perfect launching point for wine-tasting excursions in both the Sonoma and Napa Valleys, visits to the Pacific coast, botanical gardens, shopping, hiking, biking and golf. The cottage has plenty of local guidebooks, as well as a pin board with an ever-changing array of restaurant menus and winery activities. There is a patio with table, chairs and umbrella and a gas barbecue grill for your exclusive use outside the cottage door. The grounds of the property are a shared space. You are welcome to enjoy the common area organic garden and the saltwater swimming pool (in season - typically May through October) We also use these, but will respect your privacy. We are typically on the property in the main house and will greet you and show you around. The 624 sq. ft. cottage is brand new from foundation through furnishings and is located across the pool from the main house. There is a second, more secluded cottage on the property with a full-time resident who does not use the common area. Daily housekeeping is not included. If you are staying longer than a week, we will provide a clean set of bed linens and towels. There is a dedicated Xfinity wifi network for the cottage. Cell phone service seems good with most carriers. A phone is available in the cottage for domestic US use only. HOUSE RULES:The cottage is two-person occupancy. There is a two week maximum stay. Minimum guest age is 25. Sorry, we do not allow pets. No smoking (including e-cigarettes) is allowed inside or outside. No drugs.

The property has a septic system that requires following simple rules that are posted in the bathroom and in the kitchen. Please let us know if anything needs repair or replacement on your departure. We want to make sure the next guests receive all amenities and conveniences, and find everything in working order. We are a fully permitted Sonoma County vacation rental.

About the neighbourhood
Our location is perfect for wine-tasting excursions in the Sonoma and Napa Valleys. We are near the Russian River, which offers canoeing in summer. You can take a drive to beaches on the Pacific Ocean, take a hot air balloon ride, fly a glider, visit botanical gardens, hike in three different state and regional parks, bike on vineyard-laced country roads and play golf. The cottage has plenty of local guidebooks, as well as a pin board with an ever-changing array of restaurant menus and winery activities. 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.
Getting around
You will want a car to get around. Uber, Lyft and taxicabs are available, and there are several car services that will drive you (or your rental car) for a day of wine tasting.
