Sonoma's Best Guest Cottages

Such an adorable place to stay in Sonoma! We loved our stay in Trois Fleurs! Adorable, spotless and very welcoming. A great location also. Loved walking in the local neighborhoods. Highly recommend this perfect place in Sonoma!

quiet, out of the way, terrific store right on the property with great coffee, wine, beer, sandwiches, cheeses, gifts, breakfast and lunch. i mean, really really good. The place is 4 little cottages pretty much outfitted as efficiencies or one room places, kitchens, grills, very clean, very good repair, nice and attractive. Only problem it was a little far out of town. Not a probleml if you are driving (or in our case we do a lot of long walks), near a few good wineries by foot. Gayle, the owner, is wonderful. Very very enjoyable. It will be changing its name to Sonomas Best in the near future. Only questions are that I am not sure if there is linen service; inquire before you make your reservation; we didn't' get fresh towels during our 2 day stay and the access information for the gate (security code) had been changed and we couldn't get in until we called Gayle. Other than that we loved it.

We stayed in cottage #4 and it was perfect for what we were looking for. The cottage is in a very small gated community with 3 other cottages off E. Napa St. and just a little over a mile away from Sonoma Plaza. The cottage is cozy with a small full kitchen (full fridge, stove, nice calaphon pans, large coffee maker, nice dishes from Pier 10, living room, bathroom and bedroom (queen bed). We had two bottles of water and small mixed nuts on the house waiting for us when we arrived. Lots of great guides and books to flip through about Sonoma laid out well for our arrival. We used our private patio to cook beautiful rib eye steaks from Whole Foods (market is only 2 miles down the road) and enjoyed the fire pit (fully stocked with wood) on the patio. Nothing like gazing up at the stars with a nice glass of wine in front of a fire pit (more like an adobe ceramic pit). We did go out to eat quite a bit but having the option to kick back and grill one night (nice Weber gas grill on patio) and simply hang out on a private patio was lovely. It's the largest patio out of the 4 cottages and tucked back the furthest. Liked having an access code only gate to drive through to our cottage. We had two dedicated parking spots for cars for our cottage. Right within walking distance (1 minute walk) is Sonoma's Best, a nice gourmet shop for Sonoma's best food and a great selection of wine. We were able to pick up coffee there and also a few groceries we needed so we could have breakfast in our cottage in the morning. Bicycles are included at no cost so if you want to head into Sonoma Plaza, you can bring a bike or take your car. Plenty of vineyards are within biking distance. Last year I stayed at El Dorado hotel right on the square and I found this experience to be so much more enjoyable due to the extra space and privacy we had at the cottage. Also the price difference between the cottage and hotel was minimal for having a full house in comparison to a room at a hotel on the square. I will never stay at a hotel again in Sonoma after this experience. So relaxing and really felt like we had a "home" in Sonoma. My only criticism is that I wish they would have left out a large pile of firewood so we could keep burning the fire longer as we wanted to stay out side for a very long time and we couldn't figure out where the wood pile was in the dark for the fire pits.

Gayle was great who owns the cottages and she even met us over at Sonoma's Best when she heard we had just checked in. Nice touch. We loved every minute of our stay and the next time we head back, we will absolutely try to stay at Les Petites Maisons again! Thank you for a lovely 3 nights in Sonoma. Just wish we could have stayed longer.

Room Tip: If you want to be farthest from the road, cottage #4 is the one in back but it is slightly smaller t...

We loved our little cottage in Sonoma. It was so close to many wineries and many other activities.
We were able to cook on the barbeque grill and found the entire experience to be very relaxing.
The store that is on the property (Sonoma's Best) was also a great place to buy great sandwiches, salads and wine. They have bikes available to borrow and many places are close enough to bike to. The owners, Tom and Gayle, were very helpful and friendly.
Tom was always happy to give tastes of wine as well as advice!
It really made our trip extremely enjoyable. We would recommend this place to anyone going to wine country.

Room Tip: You can't go wrong. There are four cottages and they are all nice and quiet.
