About Tom Coleman
I am a retired licensed general contractor. My wife is also retired. We are both originally from Chicago, and moved out to Northern California back in the 70s. I enjoy baking bread in our pizza oven, hiking, pouring wine at a local winery, traveling and cooking. My wife is an artist who dabbles in oil painting, mosaics and ceramics. We both enjoy cooking, traveling and visiting the fantastic local Sonoma wineries and many excellent restaurants. I work at a local winery in Sonoma County and can offer suggestions and recommendations for local attractions.
Tom Coleman purchased this Cottage in 2007
Why Tom Coleman chose Petaluma
The first time I saw this property, I fell in love with the views of the Sonoma hills. It reminded me of traveling and hiking through Ireland and England.
What makes this Cottage unique
Seeing lots of stars at night. Watching the sun and the full moon come up from the cottage deck. Harvesting fresh vegetables and fruit from our gardens. Sitting quietly in our peaceful rock garden or swinging in the hammock. Staring out at the views of the Sonoma mountains. Reading on the covered back deck. Making homemade pizzas in our wood fired pizza oven. Smelling the lavender in the summer and jasmine in the spring.

Perfect for our needs!
Tom and Carol thought of everything to make their guests feel welcome! Everything we needed was available. Pleasant surprise to have coffee, tea, and delicious scone pastry (thank you Carol!) we baked fresh to enjoy! Appreciated the sparkling wine to celebrate the birth of our brand new twin grandchildren! Felt like home for my husband and I while visiting our daughter! We spent every day with her, her husband and our newborn twin grandbabies and we were looking for a place that we could go to each night to recharge for our busy days helping them out. The cottage was perfect for our needs!
Thank you so much for such a kind and thoughtful review. We truly appreciate it. We enjoyed hosting you in the cottage and are very glad to hear that you were able to do some recharging after welcoming the new grand babies. We hope that you have a lovely holiday season and look forward to hosting you again in the future. Take care.
A fun, relaxing home in the Petaluma countryside, so close too many other areas.
Owners, Carol and Tom, could not have been more warm or welcoming to us. The cottage is fully equipped with everything you could want, with lots of special touches. It is located in an area that has easy access to so many wineries, the Northern California coast, and even down into San Francisco. Also the town of Petaluma is filled with lots of fun shops and delicious restaurants. It is a welcoming place to return to after a day of sightseeing or wine tasting . The owners make it so comfortable to be there, that you could easily relax and not travel anywhere. Lots of information on various sites to see is provided in the house. My husband and I spent eight day there, and we both agree that it really made our vacation extra special.
Thank you MaryLou and Bill. It was truly a pleasure meeting you, talking to you, and serving wine to you at Cline Winery! You make opening our cottage to VRBO visitors such a wonderful experience.

Lovely, warm, charming, excellent!
The cottage, built with love, exudes warmth and loveliness. I booked a few nights for a quiet getaway, and I couldn't have been happier. Tom and Carol were delightful hosts, and the fresh scone dough (beautifully packaged and ready to be popped into the oven,) was a wonderful touch.
The cottage really is fabulous with ample space, high ceiling, gas fireplace, private garden, every amenity, and and a wonderful balcony overlooking a large lawn and garden. Thank you for a beautiful stay!
Thank you Carol! So glad you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you again soon.
Tom and Carol
Charming and wonderful
We loved our time at the cottage and really appreciated all of the beautiful touches. It really felt like a retreat. Thank you Carol for the delicious scones and Tom for the wine! We will definitely be back!
Sarah and Phil
Thank you so much for your thoughtful review. We truly enjoyed hosting both of you in our cottage. We are delighted that you were able to relax and would be happy to have you stay in the cottage again. Take good care until the next time.
Home Away From Home
This is such a lovely cottage within the Petaluma hills. Everything I needed was there for my stay. I was traveling throughout California to visit family, and this little cottage was so restful. My hosts were so nice, and even provided a special treat of homemade scones for me to bake in the morning. This was a relaxing part of my journey.
So glad you enjoyed your stay Lavonne, and glad you enjoyed the scones! Hope to see you again, down the road...
Tom and Carol
Great place to stay!!
Comfortable and clean space with lots of special touches and a wonderful host. Loved sitting on the porch with coffee and watching a flock of wild turkeys visit! A nice country feel but only minutes to the charming town of Petaluma.
We are located near numerous wineries and also several breweries including Lagunitas, Hen House and 101 North Brewing. If you enjoy walking, Shollenberger Park offers a flat 2 mile walk or stroll with many birds and views to enjoy. Helen Putnam Park offers hills for those who are seeking a more challenging hike. Also, Armstrong woods is a lovely place for hiking.
