Our family had booked us this location over labor day weekend for a wedding. From the second we pulled up it was clear this property had not been kept up. The landscaping was dead and overgrown and the paint on both houses was severely deteriorated. Walking up to both houses we could see spiderwebs on almost every window. From the surface, the home looks cute, but upon better inspection, it was clear it was given a once over before we are and nothing more. Blinds were ripped and wouldn't open or close. There was half eaten ice cream in the freezer, open wine in the fridge amongst other opened food. In the bathroom were used shampoo bottles and an obviously used bath loofah. We called the owner and were told it was cleaned and that they leave leftover bottles of shampoo for guests. When we pulled the sheets down in the one bedroom, there were stains on them. When we pulled the sheets down in the other bedroom, there was a bridal store tag in the sheets, so clearly not washed and possibly from the party who commented above. We immediately washed all sheets we could find. In looking for detergent, we found multiple bottles of insect killer, which should have told us something. The first night my children and I slept in full clothes while my husband slept uncomfortably on the couch. We did not pull it out for fear of what we'd find. Despite being booked for four nights, we immediately made plans to move to a hotel the following day. The next morning my MIL woke up at 6 am to start scrubbing the house from top to bottom. She washed every dish, every towel and was on her knees scrubbing the floor and bleaching the bathroom. By the third morning, she woke to an ant infestation coming through the front door and into the kitchen. As she tried to rid them from the house, they continually climbed all over her. She removed all her belongings and left to sleep somewhere else. She tried to ring the owner as she was upset and crying, but there was no answer. She left a message, but received no calls. Admittedly she was so upset she forgot to leave a number, but as guests, the owner would've had the contact info in addition to calling cell phone to cell phone with caller ID. There are many other choices in Sonoma for great accommodations. This could be one of them after a decent renovation, but in its current state, it is awful.

Good location, needs renovation
The location in Sonoma was great. Just a few minutes from downtown. The property manager was nice and gave us tips on a winery to visit (Schug) which we really enjoyed. There are 2 cottages - one was recently renovated and one is much older. We stayed in the cottages for a bachelorette party and the older cottage did not seem to be well cleaned. We actually scrubbed the bathtub and shower with bleach, wiped down all the counters, and bought hand soap from the store when we arrived. Overall the stay was fine but most pictures were of the new cottage and pictures were slightly misleading.
