Bedrooms 2
Space 1,180 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps up to 4 adults)

This is a comfortable, unpretentious, home in west Petaluma. The streets are wide and tree shaded, and you are a walk or bike ride away from the historic downtown, the Theatre District and many local parks.

Dine out or dine in, or picnic in the back yard garden. Amble to the Farmer's market (Saturdays) and take your finds home to create in the vintage kitchen or just hang around the house and relax with the modern amenities of WiFi/ flat screen TV. Or pretend you're not connected, and play some board games.

You can catch a live act at the Mystic or the Phoenix, or stay home and jam on the piano or guitar. The walls are hung with local art and the organic cotton linens are fresh and new.

Take the scenic back roads west to the coast/Point Reyes, or east to the Sonoma and Napa Valley wine country; jaunt up to SF, or explore local history and antique stores -whatever your plans you'll find Petaluma a unique town that works as well as a destination as a starting point.

'The Old Country' was the term my children used for this house after they left home. Like immigrants to a new land recalling their roots, they always felt a connection to the house they grew up in. We hope potential visitors feel as welcome.

Quiet location, charming home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience in this home. It was so nice to meet Patricia, who has owned the home for years and raised her family there. She pointed out some of the really charming features and history of the home which made our stay all the more enjoyable. She even had gourmet pies set out for us which made us feel so welcome, just like visiting at grandma's. It was remarkable how everything in the home seemed to be original and in absolutely immaculate condition! The only slight inconvenience was that the modern day clothes dryer was not operational, but as Patricia pointed out, there is an "organic dryer" (clothesline) for our use.

Charming Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy to meet Patricia, the owner, of this charming home. She has maintained the original design and features of this 1942 home. It was spacious, well appointed, and very clean. The beds were comfortable and quality linens were provided. As icing on the cake, there were fresh flowers and handmade individual pies from a local bakery awaiting us. Additionally, the house is conveniently located close to town and within 20 minutes of Pt Reyes National Seashore. We highly recommend this VRBO.

Great house in a quiet old neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay in Petaluma. Easy walking distance to "downtown" restaurants and shops, very comfortable house with a pretty yard, and everything we could want for a week in northern California. The owners are very welcoming, even supplying us with fresh flowers on our arrival.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed my stay at Patricia and Jesse's home in Petaluma. It was just a few blocks away from downtown in a quiet neighborhood. I look forward to visiting again soon!
