We had a great experience! The inn is located just off the main square, within walking distance of several wineries and many restaurants. The staff is very friendly and welcoming, and they bring pastries to your door each morning. I would definitely recommend it!

A friend and I visited two wineries in Sonoma County, California and then checked into this lovely B&B which had been rated #1 on Trip Advisor. I had booked the Courtyard room for the night, but the staff surprised us by upgrading us to the larger Chapel suite, It had a very comfortable king sized bed, a lounging couch, a... More

Just ended a perfect stay at The Cottage Inn and Spa. After an abrupt emergency change to our original holiday plans, my husband and I were desperate for a quiet, romantic getaway before heading back to Africa. I spent a ton of time researching on Trip Advisor and decided upon The Cottage Inn and Spa. We were not disappointed. From... More

A great review all the way from Africa!!!! One of the best parts of being involved with the Cottage Inn and Spa is meeting guests from around the world. It adds a nice international feel to our inn and makes guest interactions that much more exciting. In fact, we just had guests check out visiting from London and Australia. Thank... More

...in other words, they pay close attention to details!!! This place is simply serene and magical and whimsical all at the same time and the little details all make the experience staying here so special!

I need to ask our housekeeping staff to make a Youtube video on how to make those flower toilet paper blossoms. It is a nice detail they have added to our guest rooms. We are happy you noticed. Thank you for your kinds review. We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay. More

A perfectly charming Inn walking distance from Sonoma Plaza. Beautiful, warm and inviting rooms with lovely courtyard that we probably would have enjoyed but for the rain and cold weather. That said, there is an AMAZING covered courtyard with a beautiful fire fountain, perfect for relaxing with a glass of vino after a long day of wine tours. Breakfast pastries... More

My wife and I wanted to slip away for a few day's escape from the hectic Holidays and were fortunate enough to discover this lovely little place just down the street from the Sonoma Plaza. What a treat! We stayed in the Courtyard Room, which is the smallest room in the Inn. Even so, the room was wonderful. Immaculately clean... More

Thank you Larry and Elsa!!! Amy and I are so happy you enjoyed your stay. The Courtyard is small, yet very comfortable. I recommend the East or Chapel for your next visit. The larger bed and extra space will be perfect. Thank you!!! More

We were in Sonoma as part of our honeymoon and for a friend's wedding. It was our first time to wine country and we can't wait to go back and stay at The Cottage Inn & Spa again. It was so quiet and peaceful, yet so close to everything. Nothing beats warm pastries delivered to your door!! We'll be back!!

If you want some time to relax after Napa wine tasting, stay here! Our room was the East room I believe and had it's own private garden, in room hot tub and a community fire pit a few steps away. This place needs to advertise much better all that it has to offer. Each night we sat by the fire... More

Hotel with a difference. Quiet and very relaxing. Only about 100 yards from the town square and so convenient. Staff very friendly and helpful. Fantastic central meeting area with fire in the evenings. The rooms are all different and very individual. It is important if you are on the large side to seek advice on which rooms would be best...

The Cottage Inn and Spa is one of the best places my husband and I have stayed in Sonoma. It's right off the plaza but feels a million miles away as soon as you walk through the gates.
