About the property

Cottage, Studio + Other (See Description),(Sleeps 2)

Perfectly located, you will find our 'Little Bird Cottage just the ideal place to stay. You can easily access major highways and roads to see all of Sonoma county and more,yet we are tucked away down a quiet private road. How perfect! and we HAVE AIR CONDITIONING:)

We are excited to welcome you to our owner built and designed ground level studio located on our acre and half property here in Sebastopol. We are near, but you won't even know we are there:)

We call it 'Little Bird Cottage', because we have an abundant number of Finch and Chickadees everywhere .The brand new complete kitchen has everything you need to prepare your own meals/or special diets for longer stays if you like, but Sebastopol has a wonderful variety restaurants for you to choose from.

A beautiful hand-crafted 'Potterybarn' like bed, covered with high-end quality linens, pillows, and throws await you after a long day of traveling, sight seeing or visiting friends and family.

Out front of the studio you will find a full porch for enjoying that evening glass of vino you bought while wine tasting, or want to sun yourself a bit?, then relax in the Adirondeck chairs under the vintage Granvenstein apple tree.

From June through Sept. there is berry season;raspberries or boysenberries might show up on the porch to add to your morning breakfast ,yogurt or ice cream, and there is a lemon tree just outside your door.

It's a peaceful neighborhood, beautiful surroundings and close to everything you might want to see in the area. We can't wait to show you this cozy little spot.

Future plans: " SaraPinot Vineyards" is coming!! look for our new hobby vineyard that Ken and our sweet lab "Sara" are putting in this spring 2016.

About Kathy or Ken

Ken is a retired:) industrial sheet metal foreman, and Kathy is a retired administrator from a large HMO, and sewing instructor/interior designer, homemaker and lover of all arts/crafts. Our son Johan just graduated from Cal Poly as an Engineer! We are a hardworking family that enjoy the outdoors, small gardening projects, making and building things ourselves. We feel fortunate to be able to share this beautiful county with you.

Why Kathy or Ken chose Sebastopol

We have lived in Sebastopol for 24 years.

Raised our children here and wanted some property for them to roam around on, and Ken wanted to live near the coast for Salmon fishing. The location of our property was also a big factor in choosing this area; close to coast, wineries, redwoods and min. away from all the amenities in town.

What makes this cottage unique

We are located down a private country lane, and completely fenced around with gated secure access as well. Our climate in this area is a mix of sunshine and cool coastal breezes in the evenings.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We spent most of January here, and so glad we did. Little Bird Cottage was pleasing and homey, and just immaculate when we got here. Nice touches, fresh linens delivered weekly in a basket on the porch, with a surprise of wine, or sparkling water. The birds, quail and deer were also a bonus feature for us. We hope to pass this way again. Beautiful state and area you have here Kathy and Ken!

My husband and I celebrated our 41st wedding anniversary at Little Bird Cottage and found it to be delightful in every way! We were looking for a peaceful, charming cottage that was far enough away from noisy streets to be restful yet near enough to drive and explore quaint little towns, the beautiful north coast and of course the wine country! Little Bird Cottage was the perfect fit❤️

And where do I begin with Ken and Kathy? They should get an award for the most hospitable hosts ever!!! Everything from their warm welcome to surprise goodies and tips on area restaurants and sights to see made us feel right at home. They definitely blessed us with their attention to detail and thoughtfulness❤️

Hope to return again someday...... Gary and Pam~ Modesto CA

Little Bird cottage is a place of peace and restoration. Kathy and Ken have managed to create what I can only describe as a home away from home. A beautiful, clean and exquisitely decorated cottage awaits every guest. Sebastopol is conveniently located relative to all of wine country yet is a quant town itself to spend time exploring. We have stayed at the cottage twice and plan on coming back again. We have also stayed at many vrbo locations over the years and I must say that Kathy and Ken simply are the best. Kind, caring and accommodating describe their big hearts. If you are considering the Little Bird, I encourage you to book your stay. Your trip will be enhanced for sure. Many thanks to the gracious hosts.

Absolutely Charming!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about the perfect experience we had at Little Bird Cottage. It is a darling cottage with every amenity carefully and thoughtfully provided. The space is comfortable, spotlessly clean, and the hosts, Ken and Kathy, are helpful and friendly. They even provided a bottle of wine and lovely treats on our arrival. We could not ask for anything more in a home away from home; Little Bird Cottage went above and beyond. We also greatly enjoyed the location, close to wine country, sightseeing, and the wonderful community of Sebastapol. We had great food and fun on our trip. We highly recommend the cottage to anyone visiting nearby!

The sweetest little cottage with the sweetest owners

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Little Bird Cottage over Labor Day weekend. Kathie and Ken are the absolute sweetest. We got married in the area (our venue was ~10 minutes away) and Kathie and Ken made our weekend the best. We were welcomed with a hug, well wishes and a touch of advice. The cottage is perfectly maintained and great for a couple - and felt extremely private despite being next to the house! The cottage was extremely cozy, the linens and towels are soft and plush, the bed is so comfy. In the unseasonably hot weather, having air conditioning was a blessing. The location is great - ~2.5 miles outside of Sebastopol and takes maybe 8 minutes to get into town. And best of all, Kathie and Ken helped us celebrate - they even bought us a little present & left mini champagnes in the fridge for us.

A perfect stay, in the coziest home, with incredibly thoughtful hosts.

Owner's Response: We are so thankful for your review and appreciate the time you took to write it, even right after your wedding! We love hearing about the convenient location of the cottage to your venue and other locations you needed to get to. So glad it made your wedding day, just a little easier. We hope you both all the best in your new lives together; and remember; "try and fly back to your Little Bird Cottage nest:" and relive those memories when you can.

Great Place and a Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed at the Little Bird Cottage. It was everything we needed right in the middle of Sonoma Wine Country. The kitchen was extremely well stocked, the bed was amazingly comfortable, and at night we enjoyed the cool breezes through the windows (even though AC was available, we didn't need it). The hosts were wonderful and added extra personal touches that made our stay even more enjoyable. We are looking forward to our next visit!
