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. We can offer numerous 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.

Charming and quaint cottage
The cottage is really lovely. It has everything you could possibly need and is beautifully decorated. Tom and Carol have put a lot of tlc and thought into furnishing and decorating the cottage, utilizing historic reclaimed materials and antiques and fun touches, to make it comfortable, relaxing and unique. There are also two great seating areas outside the cottage where you can relax, unwind and enjoy the peace and quiet. Tom and Carol are very accommodating and thoughtful hosts. Tom had left us a bottle of Zinfandel from Cline Cellars and Carol had made fresh scone dough that we baked in the morning for breakfast; both were delicious! The cottage is also in a great location, away from the hustle and bustle but not far from things to do and there is lots to do in the area. We'd highly recommend staying at the cottage and would love to come back again; it really did feel like a place you wanted to come home to. Thanks for a wonderful time Tom and Carol!
Thank you for the kind words Debbie. Carol and I are very happy that you enjoyed your stay, the warm scones, and nice glass of Cline Zin. Hope to see you again!
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.
Perfect for a solo or couple. Its a separate studio cottage next to the main house. I stayed there for 5 days while doing a fencing workshop in santa rosa. Clean, quiet, and cozy which was exactly what I was looking for. Had pretty much anything I could need. The owners were great, and had the place well stocked.
Thanks so much for your kind and thoughtful review Alex. We appreciate it. We are happy that you were able to unwind and relax after several days of fencing. We hope that you will consider visiting us again to enjoy all that Sonoma County has to offer. Thanks again.
Quiet getaway; easy access to tour the region
A fun cottage to stay in and bigger than it looks in the photos. It’s located in an area full of ranchettes; you wake up to the sounds of both chickens and wild turkeys. From the cottage deck, we saw a young mule deer roam through the next-door pasture. It’s 10 minutes north of Petaluma and is a great spot to reach the Sonoma vineyards to the east and the coast to the west. Tom and Carol are responsive hosts.
Quiet, Private and Charming!
Thank you Carol and Tom.
Your Country Cottage was just what the doctor ordered. The decks are so comfortable and your decorating aesthetic is marvelous. I will return again in the future for needed R & R.
Thank you so much for your kind review Tim. We are so happy that you enjoyed yourself and had a restful stay. We would be delighted to host you again so do contact us when you find yourself needing a quiet escape. Thanks again.
A Little Home Away From Home
We loved this lovely little cottage in the Petaluma countryside. Well-built, filled with every comfort , we plan to go back in the near future, we loved it that much! Our hosts were generous and thoughtful and wanted to make sure we had what we needed. Fresh-made scones were so delicious-what at treat. Lots of books to read and the kitchen is well-outfitted, plus a grill outside. Lots of benches to enjoy nature and very quiet.The cottage is close to downtown and all that's offered there, but after a day of sightseeing, how wonderful to me back "home"! Very comfortable bed, comfy terry robes, flat screen tv: it's all there. Couldn't ask for more. It's a jewel and so are the hosts.
We'll be back, and soon.
Thank you so much for such a great review. We truly enjoyed hosting you both in our cottage. We hope it was a lovely birthday celebration. Anytime you want to return, the cottage will be waiting for you. Thank you also for the very sweet note which will be framed! We appreciate it.
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.
