We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Cottage Inn & Spa. We arrived on Friday evening around 8pm, and although we'd made arrangements to have the key left for us, the innkeeper was still there, which was a nice touch.
We stayed in the Mission Suite, which features a sitting room, full kitchen, breakfast bar, king-size bed, fireplace and double jacuzzi bath. On the plus side, the bed was very comfortable, the kitchen surprisingly useful (for the fridge, sink, etc., even though we're only there two days), the fireplace operable (with wrapped logs provided), and the grounds well kept. On the less-than-optimal-but still-functional side, the shower is a modest fiberglass prefab and the TV a small table-top model. We did however, enjoy watching one of the dozen or so complementary VHS movies that were stacked on a shelf beneath.
A point that is made on the website, the Cottage Inn does not do evening mixers or a sit-down breakfast, as many B&Bs typically offer. Instead, breakfast is a selection of pastries in a basket by the door, placed very promptly at 8am. We found that this worked fine for us, but may not be optimal for folks who enjoy meeting and mingling with other guests as part of the B&B experience.
Lastly, Sonoma was just a block away, making afternoon and evening excursions delightful. Plus, many wineries are only a short drive. We particularly like the Ledson Winery - both the hotel location in town and the "batman" like castle about 20 minutes away.
