Description from owner


Entering our country lane, you’ll begin to settle into the quieter pace of West Sonoma County life. Here we have the luxury of attuning ourselves to the rhythm of the natural world. You may see a family of deer (lately the does have been showing their fawns around the property), or if you are lucky a furtive fox, bobcat or soaring red tail hawk. But even in this country paradise we are only an hour away from the urban delights of San Francisco, twenty minutes from Santa Rosa, and eight minutes from downtown Sebastopol.

From here you can easily spend your days walking, jogging or surfing at gorgeous Pacific coast beaches, hiking in old growth redwoods, discovering world class wineries, exploring the many art galleries in our neighboring towns, browsing in unique boutiques featuring the works of local artisans, biking through the vineyards, kayaking the Russian River, dining in Zagat rated restaurants, small, local bistros or oyster bars along the coast, or just relaxing here at Apple Blossom Retreat.

The cozy, wood-shingled studio, surrounded by wisteria, apple trees, and flowers on the two-acre property is your home away from home. It is attached to our larger, country home where we live right next door, but you are completely private with your own separate entrance. Your studio and our house are separated by an 8 foot utility/laundry area. We are right here if you need anything, but we completely respect your privacy and desire for peace and quiet.

There is a small garden patio for your personal use where you can sip coffee in the morning or enjoy a glass of wine after a day of exploring hidden wineries. You can walk down the path lined with roses and grapes to use the shared hot tub right behind your studio. On sunny days, curled up in a comfy armchair with a book, you can bask in sunlight pouring through the expanse of southern exposure windows; on rainy winter days you can watch the row of poplars dance in the wind.

We’ve made the spacious living room both comfortable and beautiful, adding a few country antiques from my beloved Midwest family home. The centerpiece of the room though is a stunning, antique Japanese screen that creates your private bedroom. There you can luxuriate in the queen bed with high thread count sheets and piles of fluffy pillows. The sounds you may hear are reminders of simple, country life: the screech of a barn owl out for a night hunt, coyotes on a far away ridge yipping at the full moon, or perhaps the distant crow of a rooster. We also have Wi-Fi, cable TV, and a DVD player for those wanting to be more connected.

There is a fully equipped kitchenette with refrigerator, coffee maker, hot water dispenser, toaster oven, microwave, and a state of the art induction hot plate.

The studio cottage works well for a variety of Sonoma County travelers: adventurers wanting to explore the area, couples seeking a romantic retreat, or individuals seeking a quiet refuge for study, writing, artistic pursuits, or quiet contemplation.

At the end of the day enjoy a massage or enzyme bath at beautiful Osmosis Day Spa, surrounded by an immaculate Asian garden, or just come on home and get in the hot tub here.

We look forward to meeting you and sharing the magic of Sonoma County.
