Romantic Inn Ranks at the Top
We booked this lovely Inn from an advertisement on line. We couldn't get the room we wanted but as I got to talking to Faye, the owner, she was more than accommodating about getting the room for us at a not too future date.
When we drove up to the Inn, we were greeted by Faye and the most friendly staff, Then we went up to our room but I would hardly call this fabulous suite a "room". The name of the room is the Vineyard View Room. You walk through a center court with a glass fire pit and lounging chairs, where you can go for wine and cheese on certain nights. Lots of candles and ambiance. We then went up the stairs to the suite. Our first site was the table between the couches, that had a bottle of Gloria Ferrer champagne waiting for us, as it was our anniversary, and two beautiful wine glasses. Behind the table is a fireplace and at the top there are large windows that view a vineyard. To the left was a set breakfast table, with fresh flowers. To the right was a coffee bar, breakfast items in the cupboard and a fridge stocked with milk, fresh orange juice, etc. On the opposite side of the room there is a king size bed and an open bath with a shower and jacuzzi for two. I was impressed!
They were having a wine and cheese that evening with a winemaker showing his wares. We didn't want more to drink, but I went downstairs and brought up a tray of cheeses and crackers (these were not cheeses from Safeway, either!). Faye had graciously made reservations at The Depot for dinner and we were able to walk over there. She knew that I am a food critic, so she was careful to pick a wonderful restaurant and it is.
The next day, we made coffee and went to the bottom of the stairs to find a basket full of pastries for our breakfast. These people know how to do it right! Then we took off for the Sonoma Square, which is only a few blocks away. It was later in the day, so we went to The Girl and The Fig for lunch and ate at the bar and then wandered around the square.
If you are looking for a really special place to share with someone, this is it. I recommend it highly.

One Wonderful Experience
The Cottage Inn is about as nice a getaway as one could wish for. The wonderful staff greet you by first names and describe the Inn on the way to your room. In addition to a great room and a wonderful breakfast the grounds have many "special places" where one can relax in relative privacy. It is quite close to the square but is very private and quiet in the evening.
Can't beat this wonderful Inn.
