Why james and laurie vogel chose Petaluma
We moved from San Francisco to Petaluma attracted by the historic west side. We were looking for a nice neighborhood with good schools. We fell in love with the rural setting situated conveniently close to downtown. Though we have looked, we have yet to find any place we would rather live. Now we would like to share our find with others.
What makes this Cottage unique
Very close to Petaluma downtown, yet our property has a "country" feel. Forested with heritage oak trees and 200 foot tall eucalyptus trees. Red tailed Hawks, humming birds and of course crows abound. The koi pond is a soothing constant. Very quiet - no ambient traffic or hotel bar noise. It all makes for a setting with the accent on nature within walking distance of downtown.

Great place, great little town
Very charming, well designed and well furnished apartment. James and Laurie live on site and greet you personally. They are ideal hosts. The town of Petaluma is a real find. Several good restaurants, an excellent supermarket and easy access to Napa. Will definitely return!
Perfect getaway in a great, eclectic, and quiet location. Very private, comfortable, and well-equipped space in an enchanted setting. Lovely hosts and a PERFECT escape that is close to downtown and a multitude of amenities.
Charming town, excellent host!
We came to northern CA to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and had a wonderful time. The house was perfect! James and Laurie were super nice, the house is well taken care of, super clean, tons of extra little things, like a fresh squeezed OJ, a bottle of wine, and guest Netflix. The bed was comfortable, made sleeping easy, the shower was great, all the way down to the soaps provided.
Thanks for helping us make some great memories.
Very accommodating and close to Napa and Sonoma wineries as well as the Pacific coast. We enjoyed our stay. Thank you
Great Cottage and Location
James and Laurie were very pleasant, we found the cottage clean and well accommodated, we a stocked refrigerator, complimentary wine and beer. When asked questions regarding San Francisco, James was very helpful with guidance and suggestions, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Great Spot - Instant Home
We stayed in Petaluma as a jumping off point but found the town charming.
The space was large, comfortable, private, and our hosts were great. Had a bottle of wine waiting - and we ran into them at a local bistro.
Great location to head into Sonoma / Napa or to visit the coast (we did both). See you next year. Thank You :)
There is a Lucky grocery store within 10-15 minutes walking, 5 minutes driving distance.
Petaluma market also about the same distances, but towards the downtown area.
