Arista Cottage

Located in a quiet valley surrounded by redwoods and vineyards, the Arista guest cottage is the ideal place to escape from the distractions of daily life.

The cottage is set on the famed Martinelli Road Vineyard site which was acquired in 2012 by the McWilliams family, owners of Arista Winery on Westside Road in the Russian River Valley. The property has been continuously farmed since the 1870’s with the majority of the existing vines being planted in the 1880’s and includes 125-year-old Zinfandel plantings. 

The rustic exterior belies the well appointed interior with ample room to spread out and write. The secluded setting is only minutes away from downtown Forestville where you'll find markets, cafes, resturants, coffee shops and bakeries. 

Take a short hike around the vineyards right from the front door, or connect to the West County trail head in Forestville that runs all the way to Graton and on to Sebastopol.
