Clean, Beautiful & Peaceful Escape, Amazing Mtn Views, Numerous wineries

Family-friendly holiday home in Santa Rosa with water park
The Speakeasy Cottage is located one hour north of San Francisco nestled on a 20 acre private ranch off of Scenic Hwy 12 in Kenwood, CA. Our late Aunt Sally Stanford purchased the ranch in 1961 as a quiet retreat from the hustle and bustle of San Francisco. She was San Franciscos's most famous Madame and Sausalito's former Mayor. We named this rental 'Speakeasy Cottage' as a tribute to her illustrious career.

The cottage is located right in the heart of Sonoma County wine country in an area that is well known as the Valley of the Moon.

5/5 Excellent

Great weekend getaway
We had a great stay at the Speakeasy cottage. The checkin process is easy, the cottage was clean, and well stocked with everything you would need for a relaxing getaway. We particularly enjoyed the wild back story of Sally Stanford and plan to read her autobiography when we get home. We hope to return for another stay soon.

5/5 Excellent

Great place to stay
We have stayed in the Speakeasy Cottage three times now. We keep coming back thanks to its location and comfort. It's a great place to stay.

5/5 Excellent

Wonderful place
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the ranch. It was beautiful, and the owner was extremely nice.

5/5 Excellent

Cottage for 2
Great little cottage. Perfect for our 5 day stay in Kenwood. Clean, well appointed, comfortable, convenient and quiet. Would definitely stay again! Loved that there was coffee, milk, wine and cheese waiting for us on checkin.

5/5 Excellent

Great experience
We stayed in the Speakeasy cottage for a couple nights and thoroughly enjoyed the stay. The location is ideal for the Sonoma valley wineries and Napa is only a 30 minute ride away. The cottage was very comfortable for the two of us and Judy and David were great hosts. Highly recommend this place. Great value!
