The Cottage Inn and Spa is a hidden gem that is located in the heart of Sonoma wine country and a block away from the historic Sonoma Plaza. With its calming oasis and a variety of spa treatments, this inn is a wonderful choice for those needing a little privacy, wine and zen in their lives.
Let the design draw you in – every space is curated to create a peaceful experience. “The Mediterranean-inspired architecture was designed by Robert Behrans, an accomplished public artist, in the 1990s,” said Marcy Garrett, the Lodging Manager.
“Guests are invited to wander the manicured grounds which includes a stunning interior courtyard featuring a firepit and fountain. The whitewashed walls covered in vines paired with bamboo gardens create the perfect atmosphere for a getaway.”
Cottage Inn’s newly refurbished suites have unique styles and cozy accommodations such as in-room bubbling tubs, private garden patios, gas fireplaces, full kitchens and more.
It’s tempting to come back again, just to experience the variety. “We have a mother and daughter that have been visiting every year for the past 15 years! We also get many honeymooners who choose to come back for anniversary trips,” said Garrett.
Breakfast at your door
Another tasty perk of staying here includes the delivery of freshly baked pastries delivered to your door each morning – it’s the perfect touch. Enjoy the breakfast bites from the comfort and warmth of your suite.
Zen Garden Spa
The Calm Spa offers singles and couples massages. Unwind with full-body, deep tissue, prenatal, reflexology or Swedish massages.
Lunch at Folktable
There are so many places to eat and drink around Sonoma, it can get a little overwhelming just making a choice. We recommend a nice spot just a couple of miles outside of town, Folktable.
Set in Cornerstone Sonoma, a beautiful venue with shops, wine tasting rooms, gardens and even a history project, Folktable provides a great combination of farm-to-table and comfort food. Try some of their unique and creative dishes, like Chicken Fat Rice, Sonoma Hot Chicken Goujons or The Farm Harvest Salad.
The restaurant somehow takes a somewhat commercial setting and makes it warm and comfortable, attracting tourists and locals alike. The food is great and the service outstanding. After lunch, walk around the grounds and take in the beautiful wine country views.
An Intimate Tasting at Sojourn Cellars
Just a ten-minute walk from the Cottage Inn, Sojourn Cellars’ tasting room offers personalized service and outstanding wines.
While the winery produces Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and a sparkling wine, the headliners are the Pinot Noirs – robust, succulent, age worthy and highly rated. The vineyard boasts wines made from the famous Sangiacomo Vineyard, as well as Gap’s Crown and UV Lucky Well. On top of the outstanding wines, knowledgeable Sojourn reps steward the tasting.
Sonoma offers endless opportunities to enjoy some history and world’s finest food and wines.
Sample champagne and other bubbly beverages at SIGH, enjoy a fine meal at El Dorado Kitchen or duck out for a great sandwich at Vineburg Deli. Yes, there are too many choices, but they are great choices.
“Our guests love our location. Enjoy short walk to Sonoma’s historic plaza. With over 33 incredible eateries within 1/4 mile of us, its hard to go wrong,” said Garrett.
