These adorable little houses were once grubby workmen’s cottages for field hands. Today, they’ve been upgraded to become terrific mini-homes for tourists. Candy-colored and sweet, they’re equipped with kitchens, living rooms, big bathrooms, wide-plank wood floors, and outdoor sitting areas. Their location 2 miles east of Sonoma town makes for an ideal home base to explore both counties. Though they’re meant as cozy retreats for two, you might be able to squeeze a tot or two in with you, and the maintenance standards couldn’t be higher. Bonus: Their small on-premises market cafe offers local cheeses, wines, coffee, and sandwiches and salads. Check the website for last-minute deals on available rooms; they tend to be good.
