Description of the Cotati vacation home rental
Please contact me directly between the hours of 6am-5pm PST at the number provided. We would like you treat yourself to a quiet stay in a spacious private home in a Tahoe-like setting for less than the price of a hotel room. Just an hour from San Francisco, this is the home of traditional jazz musician Lu Watters (1912-1989). The immaculate 1300-ft. brick home is fully furnished with old-world Tuscan elegance, and has Italian tile floors and artwork throughout. Enjoy the 44" plasma TV with Bose sound system or listen to Lu Watters recordings from the days of his nightclub, Hambone Kelly's.
Area Information
Easy access to highway 101 and the Sonoma/Napa wine country hot spots in the Alexander, Dry Creek and Napa Valleys, coastal beaches, Valley of the Moon, and the spa towns of Calistoga and Sonoma. Sonoma State University is on the same street, but on the east side of the freeway.

Charm & Comfort in Cotati!

August 6, 2014

This was, by far, the best rental home ever! Sage Hen was perfect! We traveled to the Santa Rosa area, to "meet" my new grandson and the thought of being "trapped" in a hotel room, was not for me. I did some research online and found Sage Hen and wow, what a find! The home was wonderful, comfortable, spacious and beautifully furnished. It looked just like the pictures on the website. I love to cook and the kitchen was well-equipped and it even had a fully stocked pantry. We also enjoyed the outdoor area, for grilling and relaxing. We were within minutes of Santa Rosa and all the attractions that Sonoma has to offer…shopping, restaurants, outdoor activities & even a few wineries (OK, maybe more than a few) and the ocean. Ron was a pleasure to work with & made everything smooth sailing & a most gracious host. I can't wait to stay there again and have already recommended Sage Hen to family and friends. This place is GREAT! As my son said "Ron & Lu Waters got it right".

We had a wonderful and relaxing time at this great place. Ron was easy to work with and very helpful. The house was located in a super place, so it was easy to get anywhere. We traveled all over and came home every night to a safe and comfortable place!! Thank you for so much for a great time!!

bucket list

December 6, 2011

Five of us stayed at the Sage Hen; my 86 year old mother, her daughter (myself) and husband, and her grandson and wife. The purpose was to fulfill her bucket list: to see San Francisco and the northern Callifornia wine country. THe Sage Hen couldn't have been a better fit. Not only was it convenient to all we wanted to do, it involved no steps, was well equipped for cooking, and relaxing after our daily activities. We lacked for nothing. THe only negative, if there was one, was that the 2nd bedroom mattress was too firm and the pull out bed in the chair was too soft. However Ron was already looking into replacing them. We would not hesitate to stay there again!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Sage Hen. It was a quiet and comfortable home with a beautiful parklike setting. We would definitely recommend this property for visitors in the Sonoma County area.
