“Can't wait to come back!”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

Last week we stayed at the Cottage Inn for our 20th Anniversary and had a very memorable time. We were in the mission room which not only had a private side patio, but we had a front patio as well where we could be in a more public setting. In fact one night we saw another couple that checked in that day walk past the front patio and we invited them for some wine and we had a wonderful night that ended up by the fire in what I call the Solarium that is shared by all that stay there. Being only a block away from the town/plaza was so convenient as well where you could do some wine tasting, have something to eat, or shop. The basket of pastries is such a nice touch in the morning and the coffee was very good as well. We would have such a full breakfast with the cereal, juice, pastries, and coffee that we would not even need lunch.

The room was cleaned so well each day it was as if we were checking in for the first time. The beds were super comfortable and I loved lighting the candles each night in our room. Not to mention seeing them lit outside our door as well. So soothing...

The staff were incredibly helpful and pleasant and it was nice talking to Amy and Zach, the owners. They gave us good recommendation for food and wine tastings. I can't say enough. Oh, there is one more thing, I can't wait to come back! Thanks for the memories.

My husband and I stayed at the Cottage Inn and Spa for two nights in June, 2014. Prior to our arrival we already had a wonderful impression of the place when we were called to let us know that our room was ready for us early, and we could check in then if we pleased! On arrival, the staff was incredibly enthusiastic and welcoming, and our room (the courtyard room) was made up for us with candles, serene music playing on the CD player, a fridge stocked with juice, milk, and cool water, a bowl of fruit, and a table set for two. The grounds are impeccably taken care of and there are many places to sit and relax in the evening. Each morning, delicious pastries are delivered via basket to each door. The rooms themselves are clean and comfortable, and made up each morning. We definitely plan to return!

From the moment we arrived at The Cottage Inn & Spa, we had nothing but a very positive experience. We arrived early but were warmly welcomed and made to feel at home. After being given the tour of the property, we were shown our room. It was small ( which we knew when we booked it) but was laid out so well, it was not a problem. There was a table set with china, silverware, tablecloth and napkins, etc. also, a small refrigerator & microwave. A coffee pot, selection of teas, sweeteners, cereals, etc. completed our kitchen. The fridge was stocked with orange juice, water and milk. A basket of fresh baked goods was delivered in a basket to our door promptly at 8 AM. The bed was very comfortable and beautifully made up every morning. There are numerous spots throughout the property where you can sit or recline in the shade by a gurgling fountain. Great ambiance; zen-like! Loved Sonoma ( more walker-friendly than Napa) and would definitely return to Sonoma and the Cottage Inn again!!

Never posted a review before, but used this site to plan what turned into a perfect vacation, so it's only right that we pass it along. Don't know how you could possibly complain about this place. Stayed in the Chapel room from May 19th to the 22nd. Room was beautiful, very comfortable bed, with great coffee and pastries for breakfast. Staff was always very pleasant. Loved the outdoor fire on the rocks in the Courtyard every night. One block walk to the plaza. Perfect place for visiting Sonoma. Never had the urge for leaving to see Napa, as Sonoma has plenty to offer. Can't imagine there is a better place to stay in Sonoma than the Cottage Inn.

Great hospitality, beautiful suite, fantastic location. I stayed in the North Suite for 5 nights, and it was a wonderful experience. The suite had a beautiful kitchen, private back patio, and lovely courtyard area. i would definitely stay here again.

The Cottage Inn definetely lived up to expectations. It's perfectly located within easy walking distance of Sonoma Square. The ambience is delightful and very relaxing (just like the photos!). We stayed in the Vineyard View suite which is very private (it's the only upstairs room) and spacious with large wooden doors looking over to a nice view over rooftops and has a balcony feel. The furniture and bedding was of good quality and I loved the individual touches -e.g. luxury soaps and flowers. Fresh pastries were delivered to your door by 8am every morning. The staff were lovely - very friendly and helpful. I would certainly stay there again.

I had the extreme pleasure staying at the Cottage Inn last week for my sons wedding in Sonoma. We travelled from New Jersey and chose the Inn based on others reviews . The Bride and her party got ready in my Mission Suite, while the guys prepared in the North suite. The whole experience was wonderful..... and the pictures taken there look as though they come from a magazine!! We couldn't be any more thrilled with the whole experience! Thank you Amy and co.... for your wonderful hospitality...... we will visit again!!!
