The studio comfortably sleeps two on a firm, high-quality queen mattress in the bedroom area. There's also a twin bed and large couch in the living room.

When relaxing at the studio, you'll have plenty of games, magazines and books for entertainment, and a deck to lounge on.

The kitchen is fully outfitted—Plenty of dishes, pots/pans,dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, toaster oven and even farm fresh eggs, when available.

The area—Historic Petaluma for shopping and dining, Helen Putnum and Crane Creek State Parks within 20 minutes. Besides what's right out the door, there's plenty nearby for days of exploring— 45 minutes to either Pt Reyes Station, Sonoma Coast or Healdsburg, 30 minutes to Annadel State Park. San Francisco is 45 minutes away.

Out in the country but close to town.

  • 4 of 5

The studio was more spacious than we expected. The interior is simple and comfortable. We found the living area, kitchen and bathrooms to be very clean. The bed was comfortable. Heather is a very nice host letting you come and go as you please but there if you need anything or information on the area. She did provide some very fresh eggs from her chickens and Asian pears from the orchard. Nice treat.

We enjoyed our stay and would definitely return when we are back in California.

Roomy private cottage with a great view.

  • 5 of 5

If a private cottage in the country sounds good to you, this is the place. Just a few miles outside of Petaluma and thirty minutes of scenic driving to the coast, a great location to say the least. To top it off, Heather (The owner of the property) was gracious and a pleasure to meet. Notwithstanding the previous, the price was more than fair (A steal!).

Even better than expected

  • 5 of 5

When my fiance and I were looking for a place to stay for over a week, we were confident that Heather's cottage would be a good fit. We were looking for a quiet, furnished place with a kitchen, washer/dryer, and internet - basically all the amenities of home, without breaking the bank. Heather's cottage was even better than expected.

Our first thought when we entered the cottage was that it felt a lot bigger than 700 square feet, thanks to the open floor plan and high ceilings. The furnishings were more than adequate, and we found the bed and couch to both be very comfortable. We were also relieved to have a kitchen with all the basic tools so we could cook our own meals. Heather even left some fresh ground coffee, which was a lifesaver that first morning before we had ventured into town.

Our hosts were great as well - very friendly but also very respectful of privacy. Heather even offered us some fresh eggs from her chickens.

Overall we were very happy with all aspects of our stay, and will recommend Heather's cottage to any friends visiting Petaluma in the future!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife and I really enjoyed this open studio/style cottage in rural setting with our two children. We were able to relax and recharge after a week visiting the coast and San Francisco. Also, we took advantage of cycling the Chilano Valley Loop which is a perfect morning ride right from the property. Highly recommend!
