Sonoma, Sonoma County, California
Alder Mews.... imagine your own private guest cottage nestled among mature oaks and rolling horse pasture on a beautiful 20 acre property in an exclusive area close to numerous wineries and 10 minutes from the historic and charming Sonoma Plaza shops and renown restaurants. After a day of wine tasting or exploring the Sonoma/Napa Valleys, return to your bucolic retreat. Take a walk along the creek that borders the property and discover the diverse wildlife. Savor a glass of wine by the half acre fly fishing pond, or bring your own rod and catch a few big mouth bass before the resident blue heron gets them. Relax, unwind, and escape your everyday routine.

The place was absolutely perfect! Karen and Pieter were gracious hosts who have literally thought of everything. Top notch kitchen appliances, with a kitchen stocked with all you will need. And our favorite part was the serene property. The casita is set on 20 acres, with complete privacy. We enjoyed sitting down by the water looking at the newly planted...

My husband and I stayed here for the month of February. We wanted a quiet place to relax with everything we might need to feel at home for a month away, and this place provided that and more. The interior is so well planned out and modern, including a flatscreen tv that can be pulled away from the wall and...

If you are looking for a rich but relaxing experience in Sonoma and the wine region, look no further. Our vacation at Aldermews could not have been better.  We fell in love with this place. It was the highlight of our trip in Northern California. When writing a review I usually start from what has impressed me most: location, accomodation,...
