The Cottage Inn was wonderful and exactly what we needed for a relaxing weekend getaway. The Suite was beautiful and the morning pastries were a welcome treat. We visited the Cottage Inn to celebrate our anniversary. We made the right choice! The location was close to Sonoma Square with many great places to dine. We will definitely stay at the...

We stayed in the South Suite for 3 nights and loved everything about it, especially the gas fireplace and the in room breakfast every morning. Perfect location right off the main square. The staff was lovely and I really appreciated the emails leading up to our stay with offers to book spa services or reservations in advance, as well as...

There are private bungalows scattered across the property, as well as intimate areas to sit and bask in the sun, or relax, enjoying the sounds of trickling water from various water features as you listen to the birds sing. Our bungalow had a gas fireplace between the dining/living room and the bedroom, giving the place a warm, comfortable ambience. Sonoma...

My husband and I stayed in the Chapel room. It was wonderful - pretty and roomy. Comfy bed, fridge, breakfast table (nook), clean bathroom with separate double bath tub, and a faux fireplace. All the extras - tea, coffee, milk, juice, pastries - were so appreciated! We had a perfect stay. Welcomed warmly, and then left to ourselves, which works...

The location can't be beat. The room was comfortable & very clean. The continental breakfast delivered to the room was simple but tasty. The "fireplace" was actually a bunch of candles sitting on logs. My only complaint was that I made my reservation through TripAdvisor/Booking.com. Starting about 2 weeks before I arrived, I started getting emails that a cheaper rate...

Thank you for the review Sorry to hear about the pricing concern. We do set rates in Booking.com, but have no say on how they go about advertising their platform. I always encourage travelers to book through the hotel.

The front desk was very welcoming and offered a lot of information about the area. The room was stocked with cereal, milk, OJ, and fresh pastries were hanging on the door each morning. There is a community fire place where you can bring wine and hang out at the end of the day. It's in walking distance of almost everything...

Thoroughly enjoyed a one night romantic getaway at The Cottage! We stayed in the East Suite which was so charming and peaceful. The staff was incredible in getting our reservation set, making recommendations for wineries and restaurants and welcoming us upon arrival. There was a note on our room door with our names on it and our morning basket of...

The place was SUPER on all accounts. Friendly, great service, very open with requests and communication and GREAT price! we will definitely be coming back!! We stayed in the Chapel Suite. My phone died during the day, and we were going to arrive WAY past check in time. I was worried that we had these delays but didn't warn them....

The Cottage Inn treated us like valued guests. We stayed in the "studio" - which felt like our own cozy cottage. The petite kitchen was stocked with everything we needed for breakfast: orange juice, milk, and water in the fridge, gourmet coffee (regular snd decaf), an assortment of teas, jam, sugar and two kinds of cereal. The table was set...

This lovely inn is absolutely as good as it gets! I went to northern California with my significant other for a business trip. After a day visiting wineries together, I went to work, and she stayed behind to get a massage and spend the day relaxing and roaming the grounds/surrounding area. In the morning, fresh pastries were delivered to the...
