Overview

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!

Charming ❤️Peaceful ❤️Quiet❤️CLEAN❤️Location ❤️Location ❤️Location

  • 5 of 5

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

Beautiful cottage out in the country

  • 5 of 5

This was my first trip to the wine country and my wife and I had a fantastic stay at the cottage. Kathy and Ken made us feel so welcome and thought of everything possible to make our stay comfortable. We absolutely loved and really enjoyed staying here and will definitely come back. Sebastopol is a cool little town with great restaurants and local organic coffee. Very close to Santa Rosa and not far from all the great wineries in Sonoma County and Napa Valley. We will definitely plan another stay here.

Delightful & darling little cottage with everything that we needed for a wonderful visit. The owners were wonderful, kind and sincerely want nothing more than to make their guests feel at home. They even had wine and dessert waiting upon our arrival. We will be back.

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

Too cute, very quaint, and oh so relaxing!!! It was private beyond expectations given the proximity to the owners house, with a warm welcome and departure. On the list for a "do-over".

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to post a review. It is always a surprise to our guests that on almost 2 acres-they still feel part and away from the cottage, and we have strived to make it as private as possible-so glad you felt it. Please come back for your redo! Great guests and thank you again for contributing to Special Education needs!, loved donating the use of the cottage to the fundraiser!
