Sonoma is one of the most historic cities in California, famous for being the location of the Bear Flag Revolt which lead to California’s statehood. The Sonoma Plaza, located just down the street from the Cottages, is home to the city hall and many historic sites dating back to the founding of the city in the early 1800’s.
Famous for its wine, Sonoma Valley is home to exceptional wineries, many of them accessible by bicycle or a short walk. Its restaurants, fine shops and exquisite beauty attract visitors from all over the world. Sonoma is just one hour’s drive from San Francisco, and a half-hour’s drive to the world-famous wineries in the Napa Valley.
