Owner info

Year Purchased: 1870

About the owner: The Praetzel Guesthouse is located on the 8 acre Praetzel ranch settled in 1870 by Paul's Great Grandfather John J. King. It was a produce ranch, shipping such by riverboat via the Petaluma River or the Port of Tomales 14 miles west. In 1905 Grampa King went in to the chicken business - (they were free range back then!) Paul's mother, ably assisted by Dad Praetzel started a furniture business in 1950 - soon becoming the largest retailer of quality furniture in the North Bay Area, and it continues today as Praetzel's Fine Furniture. With that generations' passing Paul & Judy took the smaller of the two homes on the property and outfitted it with fine furniture to provide guest housing for people on temporary stay in Petaluma. Probably the region's first short term fully furnished housing, before internet - advertising with the Chamber of Commerce and with local realtors. It proved a service for those in need of short Petaluma stays. We enjoy the pace and flow, the texture and assortment of lovely people to our property. We personally inspect and ok the house before each arrival and expect to be of happy service to you during your stay here.
