Absolutely loved this place! My favourite stay during my trip to California this spring. The cottages are a 15 min walk from the main plaza - accessible, but far enough so that you have the countryside on your doorstep. At the side of the cottage is a nature reserve, where you can see wild deer and beautiful birds. The cottages themselves are so unique and kitsch. The rooms and common areas are adorned with trinkets, furniture and ornaments - its like The Little House on the Prairie meets the opulence of Bollywood, with a periodic feel. Its absolutely bananas in a wonderful way! Each room has a little balcony where you can sit and catch rays in the evening, enjoying any purchases from your wineries that day. Breakfast is served in a cosy little kitchen. A beautiful table is set by the owner Jo. The breakfast is fab - great coffee, cereals, fresh fruit, eggs and pastries to die for! Jo is a wonderful host - smiling and charming, yet unimposing. He was so kind and welcoming during our stay. He also provides you with a voucher (provided by B+Bs who are members to a syndicate in Sonoma) which gives you free wine tasting in many wineries. Given that my partner and I visited six wineries over our stay, I reckon this saved us about USD120 approx. Amazing. I really love this place. Would love to go back some day.
