About the Property

Charming, Quaint & Clean Rural Retreat.

Charming, quaint & clean rural retreat. Once a mid-1800 bunk house, this little cottage was lovingly restored and is a wonderful place to stay in the heart of Wine Country. Just 14 miles from the Sonoma Town Square, 10 mins to downtown Petaluma, Point Reyes National Park 40 mins and 1- 1:15 hours from major airports...

Located just off a country road, adjacent to hundreds of acres of beautiful, open ranch land. Beautiful sunrise and sunset views. Recreation outside your doorstep includes hiking, biking, amongst other options. The road riding from here is extraordinary - some of the best in the country. Hiking on the property, or up this dead end country - many active choices.

A room with a view...a great full size bed with beautiful custom linens…looking out french doors into a oak forest. Furnished with a love seat, outdoor seating area, claw foot tub, free WiFi, and fine coffee and cream for your morning - this place is quality and comfort.
It is a simple place - no TV or AC... 12 years here in Petaluma I have only wanted AC one or two nights, it cools down almost every night. This is a small dedicated guest house, and not a room in my house for rent, set up like one of the best hotels I have enjoyed. See you soon I hope. County of Sonoma also requires the following: TOT Certificate #1425N, max guests = 2 (unless you have pets or little kids or others that we have pre-approved) and max parking = 1 car... and lastly and I like this one... quite hours are from 10pm to 7am

This is the bulls-eye for all of wine country - tons of great wineries all over, and the area is packed with entertainment. Check out Jack London State parks shows - Transcendence - Wow... I grew up in NYC and this show under the stars... Or the Green Music Center... just up the road. Lagunitas Brewery is just down the road and downtown Petaluma is 10 mins with amazing restaurants, antique and other small town shops. Sonoma is less than 20 mins away. Head from here on some of the best bike riding in the country or drive out to Point Reyes National Seashore- if you like Ousters and Crab... we have tons of it. Great hikes and parks - close enough to San Fran... every night is nice and cool for great sleeping and most days warm... it is a magical spot. On 50 acres - all of it looking out over the valley - the mornings light up with sun rise and each evening another sunset show.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Grew up in NYC, moved to CA first with Vanity Fair Magazine, now I operate a media rep firm specializing in health and wellness and outdoor sport. Backpacker, Climbing, Runner's Word and Bicycling are amongst our best clients. I am a committed father raising two on my own, media professional, sales animal... a city boy moved to the country with a foot in both. Now learning to keep animals and a large ranch while staying fit and enjoying this paradise of Sonoma.

Why the Owner Chose Petaluma, CA, USA:
Found this place on my favorite lunch bike ride. Chance favors the prepared and I was ready to jump - this place had not changed hands in 70 years. All my neighbors are 4 generation ranches - I totally lucked out. The place was a mess, and polished up so well - now with working barns from the 1800, a 1920 granny unit that is my office, outbuildings and a fully renovated farm house... and the bunk house I am renting to you I hope... the place is a dream come true. It has so many things I love, old barns, cool forests, rock walls, owls, big views, wild flowers, all sorts of critters, spring water... and so much more. Hit it right - finding and buying right at the bottom of the last drop.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Out in the country and so close to town - great meals so close and yet here tucked away it is so quite and beautiful - seeing the landscape change as the hay is cut on the next hill, the grapes going down the road, friendly neighbors always waving - many nights I hear the owls hooting. I pick and eat from the orchard and my garden... eating my own chickens eggs. Work out - just walk up the dead end and from the top see San Fran and the bay. Washer and Dryer and a kitchen may be made available to your for your stay - just ask.
