Guestbook comments from the owner

"Thank you so much for offering us such a beautiful house in which to spend my 50th birthday. As everyone else has said, "it has absolutely everything in it and is a real home.

The boys especially loved the comfy beds and I loved sitting out on the deck in the sunshine first thing in the morning.

We recommend dining at the Girl & the fig, sunflower Cafe and Maya

Cycle around the vineyards, avoid Viansa winery 'tour" was anything but. we found Napa overpriced so much returned to this side of the valley!"

PS we're very sad to be leaving

Pleasant stay in wine country

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Stephanie and Jamie’s home. The property is tidy, well-maintained, and beautifully decorated. The pool was warm and clean, and our babies loved playing in the water. The home is quie and, private, but very convenient to downtown Sonoma - a quick 10 minute drive. We loved spending time at Orchard Cottage and would recommend it for any family or group looking for a peaceful oasis in wine country.

Relaxing and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The property was more beautiful than the pictures show. The house was clean, the pool was a great temperature, and it was all perfect for our ladies' weekend. It was close to downtown Sonoma, which was convenient the first night we flew in. We ate at The Girl and the Fig (amazing). It wasn't too far from the wineries in Napa & Oakville (loved Round Pound the most, but also shout outs to Robert Mondavi and Frog's Leap) and finally, the great restaurants there, Mustard's Grill and Brix (which were outstanding). Get reservations for all of these places. Overall, a great stay. Thank you!

Amazing house!

We had a wonderful girls weekend at this house! It was the perfect size for the 6 of us and we especially loved the spacious backyard. We spent a majority of the weekend hanging out in the pool! Stephanie was an amazing host - thank you for everything!

Nice property!

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay at this property in Sonoma. The home was well appointed - we had everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. The beds were very comfortable which is a very important factor in my book :) We had six of us for three days and several of them were a little disappointed at some of the "rules"......1. such specific garbage rules, 2.having a friend be able to visit with us in Sonoma but then not being able to have the possibility to bring her air mattress to put on the floor because this owner only wanted 6 total - that made it necessary for her to drive back to San Francisco--that just seemed silly to some of us since we aren't staying up late making noise and partying or anything like that. We left the home as clean as if it were our own. Two of the women thought the "rules" took a little away from their total relaxation of their vacation and that is why we are giving it 4 stars instead of five.. But overall, still a very nice place to come back to from wine tasting or hiking and be able to enjoy the rest of the evening in a beautiful back yard.

Beautiful cottage in Sonoma

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful, relaxing trip in this cozy, secluded cottage, conveniently located near Sonoma and Napa wineries. It was very clean and well maintained. The backyard area was very nice, with lots of shade and seating areas, as well as a wonderful pool. We spent lots of time there! Stephanie was quick to answer any questions and offer suggestions. We will be back for sure!
