Stop by September 20th for Wine + Unwind when you can do yoga on the grounds and relax with vintages and organic bites."

Beautiful home in Petaluma--Great location

  • 5 of 5

The home is perfect for a large family, very spacious, very clean and a great kitchen to cook. We visited Petaluma for a wedding and the house worked out great as my family and daughter prepared for the event. The house is nicely located near the downtown area but away from all the traffic and noise. I highly recommend this property, and I have rented several over the years, one of the best.

Lovely accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at this lovely home. The listing description and pictures were quite accurate with the exception of one of the bedrooms showed twin beds and there was actually a double bed in the room. The house was clean, cozy and very accommodating for our group. Everyone was very pleased with this rental! The owner was friendly and in communication with us.

We would definitely recommend this property to friends or relatives.

Impressive property - spectacular host!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful home. It is tri-level which I thought would be an issue with our young kids but it really was fine. The master bedroom and bath on top floor is a welcome retreat and the 3 bedrooms downstairs made a great spot for the kids to sleep. The kitchen was well stocked and the view from there out to the valley - incredible! But what was most reassuring was the consistent communication from Margaret regarding our stay: before, during and afterwards. She really made sure all our needs were met. If we had questions regarding something in the house, she responded quickly via text. We couldn't have been more pleased with our experience.

Spacious beautifully appointed home near the wineries of Sonoma County.

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful property. Conveniently located between San Francisco and the wineries of Sonoma County this gorgeously decorated home was a perfect retreat to return to after a full day of vineyard touring. The owners were very accommodating in working with us on our arrival and provided excellent recommendations for places to eat and wineries to visit. Highly recommend this property.
