Guestbook comments from the owner

I spent 4 nights in the Boonville cottage. It was up-to-date, exceptionally clean, modernly decorated and had lots of natural light. The floor plan was open and the bedding was very, very comfortable. The yard was enclosed by privacy fence and beautiful trees and flowering plants. The location was perfect. The vineyards in the area are beautiful and the town is surrounded by lovely mountains and vineyards. The road to the shore leads through a gorgeous redwood forest. picturesque Mendocino is an easy, scenic car ride away. I could not have stayed at a more lovely place. They even left a bottle of wine for me and water and snacks because they knew I had such a long travel (East Coast). I will definitely return and I highly recommend this cottage.

Execellent location

  • 5 of 5

We were visiting the area for the Pinot Festival, the location was fantastic - easy access to the festival, local wineries, and less than a block to downtown Boonville and the Boonville Hotel. The owners were very professional and gracious and Capt. McCarthy was very helpful in helping with the local attractions. Thank-you for opening your home to us.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was very comfortable albeit somewhat spartan. Very secluded and quiet yet convenient to downtown Boonville businesses. Easy walk to Boonville Hotel with its great prix fixe dinners and some of the local wine tasting rooms. Owners were very cordial and easy to communicate with. The bottle of chardonnay that awaited us was a very welcome nice touch. Perfect place to use as a convenient base for visiting the many wineries in the valley yet with the dining amenities of Boonville very close by. We would definitely consider booking this location again in the future as it is a good value for the price.

Loved it!

  • 4 of 5

The owners and caretaker are unbelievably sweet, gracious and attentive. The house has a convenient location and ample parking right behind the Boonville Hotel but was surprisingly private due to surrounding trees. The interior was clean and rustic... don't expect modern amenities (dated baths, couch covers, no dishwasher, mismatched kitchen supplies, etc). The three bedrooms and three bathrooms were great for accommodating three couples. It should be noted that two beds/bedrooms are only separated by a thin wall and the beds/linens/pillows are a bit dated. There is a dining room in the middle of the house that we did not use and a small yard that would be great to use in warmer weather. Overall, it's a comfortable, cozy, vintage-style farmhouse perfect for families and/or friends. We would absolutely return. Thank you Matt and Dixie!

Great place in best location in Anderson

  • 5 of 5

Great spacious house and cottages. Exactly as advertised. Owners were very responsive and sent me my deposit back immediately. Ideal for a large group of friends or family who are wine tasting or attending a wedding. Very clean and comfortable. Walking distance to the best restaurants. The hosts welcomed us with a bottle of wine and guides to many GREAT wineries which are right down Highway 128

Relaxing and Private

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Creekside Cottage for 3 nights and attended the Pinot Festival in the Anderson Valley. The property is clean, well maintained and very private. Large deck facing a wooded area with the creek below. Lots of windows and great light. Plenty of trees to deflect any direct sun. Exceptionally clean and comfortable. Loved the comfortable bed and slept very well. Best value in the area! We hope to visit again next year during the Pinot Fest! Don't miss the Mosswood Cafe for an early morning breakfast. They open at 7:00 a.m. and the scones will melt in your mouth.
