Sonoma Creek Cottage is located five minutes drive in between the wine country towns of Glen Ellen and Kenwood, and 20 minutes drive thru vineyards to Sonoma's square.
This gated, very private property is situated along one acre (500 feet) of Sonoma Creek where you can hear the year round sounds of the flowing water.
Abundant wildlife is drawn to the water's edge. There is easy creek access that allows you to explore, or you can sunbathe next to your private solar heated pool.
We have a new 7 person spa/hot tub attached to the deck, overlooking the creek, and an outdoor hot shower with waterfall and body jets.
Beautiful gardens wind through the expansive property where you can picnic in our field or on the lawns. We plant hundreds of daffodils each year that bloom from early February to mid March. Hundreds of tulips start blooming in early March until the end of mid April and the roses, irises and wisteria start to bloom in April.
The comfortably decorated living room has a gas fireplace, and the open dining area and kitchen is surrounded by french doors with retractable screens that open onto the spacious wrap around deck with vistas of the creek, surrounding woods and hills. There are ceiling fans in every room for those who do not want to use the central air conditioning.
There is a gas barbecue on the deck and ample outdoor seating for family gatherings. For those who do not want to cook, the cottage is just five minutes drive to great breakfast places and world-class restaurants.
The master bedroom has a queen size bed, while the second bedroom has a full size bed. The sofa in the living room converts into a double bed. The bathroom has a marble sink and the tub & shower overlooks the creek and woods.
Sonoma Creek Cottage is perfect for a romantic get-away for one or two couples traveling together, or a small family with pool safe children over the age of 8.
The cottage is not child safe. There are nice furnishings, exposed plugs and outlets, cleaning chemicals that are not locked away, and a stream, pool and hot tub that are a drowning risk. We do not rent to families with children older than 6 months and younger than 8 years old. If you have pool safe children older than that, you will be asked to sign a release form affirming that no children in that age range will be on the property. We do not allow pets or smoking.

Pool Heat: The temperature of our solar heated pool depends on the air temperature. During the summer, the average pool temperature ranges from the upper 70's to high 80's. If you want to insure very warm pool water (approaching 85 in the afternoon), you can order supplemental gas heat. You can cancel your gas order if you see that the air temperature will be in the 90's: when you won't need it. Supplemental gas heat for the pool costs $60/day and is only available from June 20-September 20.
