Property description

Just north of San Francisco, historic Petaluma Roost Vacation Rental is a remodeled coop ideally located in Wine Country. Petaluma, known for its gourmet restaurants , antique shops, river boating is only 30 minutes from Pt. Reyes National Seashore Park where there are dramatic beaches, biking and hiking trails. Additional spectacular views are at Dillion Beach, 20 minutes away, or the many beaches at Bodega Bay where Hitchcock's movie 'The Birds' was filmed.
Scenic Sonoma County continues to be the backdrop for movies and TV commercials plus offers some of the best wines in the world! Drive the backroads through Oaks and Redwoods (wine maps provided), and discover superbly designed wineries in magical vineyard settings.

Although The Roost is in the country, its not far from old downtown Petaluma with its historic buildings and Victorian homes.
Relax and view wildflowers from the roost deck or from your private patio, watch the fog roll in over a stunning sunset. Enjoy the fire from the wood burning stove in the cozy but spacious coop.

The interior has color-washed and venetian-plastered walls hung with original art work. Plush wool rugs on a designer stained floor, where lots of windows and french doors create a light airy space.

An adjoining sun room with a tropical theme has a two person soaking tub and a small table with chairs. A misting fountain rotates soft colors to make this room very romantic.

Our guest house also has a washer/dryer, small refrigerator, micro-wave oven, espresso coffee machine, large bathroom with shower and a TV with DVD/video player which you can watch from the tub or sofas. Many books and games are provided for your pleasure.

Our rates are the same all year around. We do have lower weekly rates.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: Erv and Judie Peterson are your hosts for the Petaluma Roost Vacation Rental. In 2001, we remodeled one of the old chicken coops on the farm that once had 20,000 leghorn chickens. The 1830 chicken house where Erv collected eggs as a boy is now the 'Coop', a spacious, comfortable abode with color-washed and venetian plastered walls and beautifully stained concrete floors with lavish rugs which any chicken would approve. Erv, a native of Petaluma, taught environmental studies at Sonoma State University. Judie had careers in graphic art, massage therapist at Sonoma Mission Inn, nursing and faux painting, We are a foster home for Italian Greyhounds, taking one foster at a time in addition to our three Iggys, Cosmo, Ditto and Sheeba. Living on the property are also 2 cats, Coon and Groucho and 2 chickens. Many birds, including a family of barn owls in the old water tower, make their home here as well.

Why the Owner Chose Petaluma:
We decided to share our place with guests as the Roost is centrally located for exploring wine country, a zip to San Francisco or the many great beaches and parks nearby, including Pt Reyes National Seashore Park.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
We have tried to create a place of quiet serenity even though we are only 5 to 10 minutes (by vehicle) from the town of Petaluma. The many birds that have chosen to nest here seem to agree. On our property we've seen deer, fox, a ring-tail, many, many gophers and some raccoons and skunks.
