Everyone knows Wine Country is a foodie mecca. But it’s not just because of the endless array of world-class restaurants: Sonoma County produces some of the finest meats, cheeses, fruits, and vegetables on earth, and if you love to cook, the Winelight Vineyard Cottage is a safe bet. There’s a big kitchen complete with cooking supplies, and the nearby Windsor Certified Farmer’s Market runs most of the year on Sundays, as well as on Thursdays during the summer, giving plenty of fresh, super-local options to choose from. On top of that, you’ll find a kindred spirit in Michael, your host for this Airbnb cottage rental. Michael makes his own Pinot Noir, and you’ll receive a bottle of it at arrival, as well as his own olive oil, which guests typically try out as well. Plus, he has a great garden and has been known to drop off baskets of veggies for his guests. Eat out on the large deck, and then relax in the hot tub later.
The cottage is close to the Sonoma County Airport, but don’t worry: noise is not an issue.
