If you are staying longer than a week, we will provide a clean set of bed linens and towels. There is a dedicated Xfinity wifi network for the cottage.

About the neighbourhood
.Our location is perfect for wine-tasting excursions in the Sonoma and Napa Valleys. We are near the Russian River, which offers canoeing in summer. You can take a drive to beaches on the Pacific Ocean, take a hot air balloon ride, fly a glider, visit botanical gardens, hike in three different state and regional parks, bike on vineyard-laced country roads and play golf. The cottage has plenty of local guidebooks, as well as a pin board with an ever-changing array of restaurant menus and winery activities. There are more than two dozen wineries and tasting rooms nearby, including St. Francis, Chateau St. Jean, VJB, Ty Caton, Landmark, Kenwood, Kunde, and Ledson. There are many notable restaurants a short drive from the property and three Michelin star restaurants in Sonoma County.
Getting around
You will want a car to get around. Uber, Lyft and taxicabs are available, and there are several car services that will drive you (or your rental car) for a day of wine tasting.
