High-end amenities in a playful studio cottage for up to 5 people, (if at least one is a child who can sleep on the couch!) This warm, light Granny Unit has all you need for a relaxed, affordable & peaceful stay. Home features superior value & quality for the price, & is significantly better in both style & comfort than our hotels. Guests say they especially enjoy the efficient use of space and the many artistic touches. Beautiful outdoor spaces are expansive; a backyard that is private, quiet and restful, with a beautiful antique iron mantle, BBQ, & glass gas fireplace!
The Stone Cutter's Cottage was the workshop where the Head Mason for the Luther Burbank's Center where he cut his stones! Today, it is a fully modern, independent Granny Unit STUDIO with a full kitchen and a bath, complete with Jacuzzi tub. Your kitchen holds all the amenities you will need including spices, and all quality linens and bedding are provided for your comfort
The spacious single room has a Sealy Posturdedic Queen mattress (oooohhh, comfy!) and a queen-size self-filling blow up bed, easily stored during the daytime. (Let us know if you want it made up prior to your arrival. ) Your large, completely private yard features an outdoor gas fireplace, gas grill, two patio areas, & a "cuddling hammock"! The yard has a peach and three Gravenstein Apple trees! We have planted an Organic "Salad Bar" Garden Box for your eating! We often have overflow from our own organic garden as well, to share with you during summer months!
Use our blow up kayak to splash about at the river, (you'll need a truck or van to haul it, ) and YOU PUT IT AWAY. Or simply rent canoes or kayaks nearby. Make use of the picnic backpack in our stunning countryside! There are many regional parks nearby; our guidebook will direct you! When planning your trip, remember, there is a lot more to the wine country than just wine! We have some amazing coastal hikes, wetlands, estuaries and preserves. And San Francisco is just an hour away!
We look forward to hosting you when you come our way and will do what we can to make your stay in the wine county memorable. We love it here and trust you will as well

Interaction with Guests
We are right next door if you need us. We usually stop by to say hello during your first or second day with us, and after that we are around if you need us, usually after work--we can't all be on vacation, you know!
We have a babysitter on site! Our girls are 14, 16, 21 and all have babysitting/CPR training! If you have a horse that needs attention, that would be Quinn!
You'll be staying in an older, super safe, well-established family neighborhood. Your immediate next door neighbor is in his nineties, so you won't hear a peep from him. Overall, it is a very quiet, calm area of town. The home is at the top of a hill, so if you like to walk, this place is great for cardio workouts!
The second queen-sized bed is a double mattress air bed, (normal height bed) and is top of the line--not your camping mattress from childhood! The SoundAsleep Dream Series, with Comfort Coil Technology is rated by Best Reviews, May 2016, as the very best on the market. A child can sleep comfortably on the sofa. We'll put out a sleeping bag. Just be reminded that this is a studio, so five people can get pretty cozy!
A car is recommended. Two blocks from our house is the bus stop for county transit. Uber is also available here. Wine tours are available by limousine. Or Segway!
