My husband and I stayed in the South Suite for three nights for our first anniversary trip. We absolutely loved it at The Cottage Inn. The location, the room, the amenities, the owners. Every morning we enjoyed a peaceful pastry breakfast in our room before we hit the wineries and every evening we would return back after walking to dinner... More

We spent our Thanksgiving holidays enjoying all that wine country had to offer and stayed four nights at the Cottage Inn. I could not ask for better service! From making the reservation to check out, everyone we encountered at the Cottage Inn was warm, friendly, and helpful. This quiet B&B was just right for us - convenient to the Sonoma... More

To celebrate our 40th anniversary, we planned a trip to Sonoma Valley. We live in northern MI. My husband found The Cottage Inn & Spa on this website. We looked at the photos and decided it appeared lovely. My husband called to discuss room location, and his food allergies. He spoke with someone at front desk twice, and I called... More

Our second visit to the Inn was everything we had remembered. Three couples, our own courtyard, walkable to the Square, buns on the door in the morning...just perfect! We highly recommend this Inn. The owners are very accommodating, and see to your every need.

We stayed in the North Suite and fell in love the minute we got there. A great picture window overlooks the courtyard, where there is a lovely fountain. There is a fireplace and the decor is clean. Fresh coffee, wonderful baked goods in the morning over a beautifully set table--all wonderful! The staff took very good care of us, both... More

This seems to be a well kept secret. It is tucked away on a residential street just a block from the center of town. You can easily walk to numerous restaurants. Our 2 friends and my husband and I had 2 first floor suites next to each other. Each had a full kitchen, living room and bedroom and private entrances... More

We stayed w/ another couple at this great little inn, a stone's throw from downtown Sonoma. We enjoyed service with a smile and above and beyond in every way. The place is charming and well appointed yet the interest to help you get the most out of your stay is where they excel!

We stayed just one night, in the North Suite. The design and size of the room were fantastic. Spanish tile floor, kitchen, sitting room, gs fireplace, basically no detail left ignored. Even treated to fresh pastries delivered to b our room. Beautiful courtyard and fountain. Lori at the front desk was delightful. Highly recommend this Inn.

The staff at Cottage Inn & Spa are amazing. They did everything they could to make sure our stay was special. The location was perfect to walking to the town square every night for dinner and relaxing. The rooms are very romantic and quite. Highly recommend if you want to stay in Sonoma. BTW Sonoma is way better than Napa... More

The location is prime in the heart of downtown Sonoma. The staff is amazing, when checking in they were expecting us and called us by name. It was my wife's bday and they had a bday sign on the door and a gift basket inside. Amenities are awesome and the free wine tasting pass is great as well! 100!
