The Cottage Haven - Nestled In The Heart Of Wine Country And Horse Country

Property type cottage

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleep 4

Perfect, private get-a-way for 2 or small group, truly in the heart of wine country. Our Cottage was recently featured on FYI's Tiny House Hunting- season 3, episode 8! This property is surrounded by the wine country trail, and just down the road from South Coast Winery. Also down the road, is the popular horse country, including the new polo fields at Galway downs.

The Temecula wine country has been a growing destination vacation for horse lovers, wine tasters, weddings, hot air balloon enthusiasts as well as cyclists. And even if you don't enjoy any of these things, the open countryside is a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of city living.

The Cottage Haven is a darling guest house on our 5 acre ranch with it's own private entrance. Our family stays busy in the main house but you will have your privacy away from the main house in the cottage. Modern cottage decor, full kitchen, and bubbling hot tub are just a few of the amenities you will enjoy. In the upstairs loft, your friends or children can enjoy the treetop views from the 2 twin beds. (Please note: the stairs to the loft are attic stairs-See photo)

Enjoy a picnic on your own private lawn or practice your soccer skills on our front lawn. Sit by the shared pool with a glass of wine and a good book and enjoy the quiet countryside and the sound of the breeze blowing through the huge pine trees that surround you.

Horse lovers can pull your trailer on the property and coral their horses in our 16x30 feet horse pen with shade. You will also meet our labradoodle family members that roam the ranch as well.

We moved our family to this wine country property over 6 years ago from Yorba Linda and have never regretted it! We love the beautiful landscape out here and the peaceful and starry nights. And even though we are in the country, we are literally 5 minutes to Ralph's, Sprouts Market, Baron's, Starbucks, Great Harvest, Corner Bakery, Best Buy, Sports Authority and Super Walmart!

Even though this cottage has a full kitchen, we would love to recommend delicious places to eat including restaurants at the local wineries...We've tried them all!

About Joe and Shari Franklin

We moved from Orange County CA to the beautiful Temecula Valley in 2009. Temecula is such a great place to raise a family and we have loved our time here. There is so much to do and enjoy here: wineries, hot air balloons, casinos, wedding venues, nearby Lake Skinner and Vail Lake, horse back riding - you name it, we got it!

Joe and Shari Franklin purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Joe and Shari Franklin chose Temecula

We chose our five acre ranch because it was situated close to shopping, restaurants and wineries, while feeling like you are out in the country. It also gives our labradoodles space to run and play! Tranquility, peace and quiet is what makes out property amazing!

What makes this cottage unique

It is so rare in California to find a brick, ranch style house - when we drove up to this property we knew it was for us! And then when we saw the cute cottage on the property and we fell in love with it. We love sharing our property with friends and family and are excited to share it with you.

Great place to stay within the heart of wine country!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time staying at this property. The place is exactly as described and the photos do not do it justice. Communication was great with the owners and check-in and check-out were very simple. We love using the amenities such as the pool and hot tub and the dogs on the property were just a great bonus! This is definitely a place we would love to stay at again if ever we are in this area in the future.

Charming Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming cottage and is decorated so cute. Beds were comfortable and had nice bedding. They had a Keurig coffee maker and provided a good selection k-cups too. The homeowners dogs are very sweet and we enjoyed petting them. Great location, close to many wineries and just a short drive to Old Town Temecula.
