Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Burbank Gardens Neighborhood Association - The Emerald Cottage

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, 6 Sleeps

Our cool and comfortable cottage is on a quiet street and a five minute stroll to downtown Santa Rosa, with world renowned craft breweries, Michelin rated restaurants, art galleries and shopping. Unique in style and color, and furnished for comfort.

The cottage was designed by artist Lori with her husband Steve. Our idea was to create a crazy art project that you could live in - you're on vacation, have fun! Each room has a different color scheme. Two bedrooms, one bath and a queen sleeper in the living room accommodates six comfortably. All of our beds have premium mattresses so you can sleep tight. A private backyard patio for morning coffee or an evening dinner, BBQ Grill included. Private parking on-site allows guests easy access the cottage from both the side and front entrances, making unpacking easy.

The cottage is the front house of two on the property. The back unit is a private rental. In creating the Emerald Cottage, we were diligent in finding the right tenants who would not only understand the cottage is a vacation rental, but would welcome our guests as their neighbors, and respect their quiet enjoyment and privacy.

The cottage is a non-smoking, both inside and on the grounds. Although we love dogs and pets, we do not allow them in the cottage. We ask that our guests respect our 10pm - 7am 'quiet time'.

About Steve Miksis

Cottage Keepers Steve & Lori share many of the same interests: hiking, art, music and food. We had a blast creating the cottage! As a haven for artists and musicians, Santa Rosa and Sonoma County have many indoor and outdoor music venues, and an abundance of local galleries. Ask us about our favorites! We live right around the corner and are always available for anything you might need.

Why Steve Miksis chose Santa Rosa

The cottage is located in the Historic Luther Burbank Garden's section of downtown Santa Rosa; a walk around the block takes you to Luther Burbank's home and gardens. Five minutes to a variety of restaurants, coffee shops in the neighborhood or in downtown Santa Rosa (walk to get your Pliny!) A ten minute walk down the creek takes you to Railroad Square, the historic part of downtown.

What makes this cottage unique

A quiet, dead end street with little vehicle traffic makes for a relaxing sit on the front porch and a great place to people watch.

Funky bungalow with everything you want in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

This place was so perfect! Loved the funky decor, the location that was within walking distance to breakfast and dinner spots, as well as central to Sonoma County. The owners thought of everything, including a bottle of wine on arrival. Also, the bungalow was reasonably priced for the region. If I return to the area, I will certainly stay here again. Thank you for playing a part in my perfect girls weekend getaway!

Quaint, clean, and well-located cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this cozy and colorful cottage for a wedding weekend, and while we did not spend a ton of time in the cottage, it was well-located and clean and met our needs perfectly. The front garden is beautiful, the owners are friendly but not intrusive, and the house is walking to downtown including two great breakfast spots (Naked Pig and Curbside). We enjoyed our stay and highly recommend to others.

The Emerald Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is very cute and has everything you need. It's walking distance to several restaurants and coffee shops. The owners are very responsive.

The location is about 45 minutes to wineries and you will be traveling over very steep and winding mountain roads (with no guardrails) so be sure to have a designated driver.

Comfortable, cozy, eclectic cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I throughly enjoyed our two night stay at Emerald Cottage. Steve is an excellent communicator, and the cottage was very well outfitted for travelers. The cottage was clean and the beds were comfortable. Loved first finding decorative treasures all over the house. Thanks for the hospitality!

Cheerful Oasis in Santa Rosa!

  • 5 of 5

If we didn't step foot out of The Emerald Cottage, our stay in this colorful, yet cozy home would have served as a vacation in and of itself! Steve and Lori's attention to every detail, from the whimsical decor to the everyday practical, had us feeling happy and at home from the moment we opened the door. The enjoyment and comfort of their guests is obviously a priority, and we wanted for nothing during our stay. Though our family in Santa Rosa were wonderful "tour guides," making sure we saw the best of the area (the coast, redwoods, wineries, Fort Ross, Charles Schultz Museum, San Francisco, etc.), our "down time" spent on the front porch of the cottage provided just as much enjoyment. Although in a quiet neighborhood, there were a lot of opportunities for people (and dog!) watching, as the cottage is within walking distance to the town (a great benefit!). Most passersby had a smile and a "hello" for us; a few even stopped and chatted for a few minutes. We found it difficult to leave, but know we will be returning to The Emerald Cottage. Thank you, Steve and Lori, for your responsiveness from our initial inquiry to being such gracious and conscientious hosts during our stay. We look forward to seeing you again.
