Alder Mews.... imagine your own private guest cottage nestled among mature oaks and rolling horse pasture on a beautiful 20 acre property in an exclusive area close to numerous wineries and 10 minutes from the historic and charming Sonoma Plaza shops and renown restaurants. After a day of wine tasting or exploring the Sonoma/Napa Valleys, return to your bucolic retreat. Savor a glass of wine by the half acre fly fishing pond, or bring your own rod and catch a few big mouth bass before the resident blue heron gets them. Relax, unwind, and escape your everyday routine. It is hard to imagine that this 1,100 foot pristine and comfortable cottage was once stables for thoroughbreds and quarter horses.

Alder Mews.... imagine your own private guest cottage nestled among mature oaks and rolling horse pasture on a beautiful 20 acre property in an exclusive area close to numerous wineries and 10 minutes from the historic and charming Sonoma Plaza shops and renown restaurants. After a day of wine tasting or exploring the Sonoma/Napa Valleys, return to your bucolic retreat. Savor a glass of wine by the half acre fly fishing pond, or bring your own rod and catch a few big mouth bass before the resident blue heron gets them. Relax, unwind, and escape your everyday routine. It is hard to imagine that this 1,100 foot pristine and comfortable cottage was once stables for thoroughbreds and quarter horses. A private pastoral drive takes you past the pond with willows and water lilies to the present barn, small family winery and casita. Dine on a large screened in porch overlooking a private rhododendron garden with fountain and valley views through the trees. The cottage has an open living/dining/full gourmet kitchen floor plan with a bedroom with king bed, study and 2 bathrooms (one with shower, one with a walk in Jacuzzi tub). A gas fireplace beneath a 50 inch 4K HD TV adds to the luxurious and comfortable ambiance. Alder Mews has all the conveniences of home and more: Gas Wolf stove and oven, dishwasher, garbage disposal, microwave, full size refrigerator with ice maker, automatic hot water dispenser, coffee maker/toaster, dishes pans and cooking utensils, spices, linens, washer/dryer, TV (all Direct TV channels and access to Netflix, Hulu and Amazon prime time), high speed internet, air conditioning and gas barbecue. Guests are welcome to use the swimming pool in the summer, but the pool, while private, is closer to the main house than the cottage. Most often guests will have the pool to themselves. However, it is shared when the grandchildren and family come to visit. There is a variety of information in the cottage to help you with planning your activities and sample restaurant menus for your dining adventures. Your hosts have lived in the valley for over 30 years and are always happy to help with further information and planning. One to two well behaved and friendly adult dogs (not a barkers) are welcome with prior arrangement and dog information. Cottage yard is fully fenced. Your dog will love all the new intriguing smells and room to romp, and if he is a water dog, swimming in the pond. Dog fee to be discussed. Sorry, we cannot accommodate cats. This is a nonsmoking property. The property is not appropriate for children due to the proximity of the large pond. However, infants who do not walk can be accommodated and a pack and play can be provided. Sorry, no parties. FOR LONGER THAN THREE DAY STAYS, INQUIRE ABOUT LOWER PRORATED RATES.
