We can even pre-shop your favorite kitchen foods for you. Guests repeatedly enthuse over the spaciousness of our guesthouse. We have frequent returnees.

The Praetzel Guesthouse is located on the 8 acre Praetzel ranch settled in 1870 by Paul's Great Grandfather John J. King. It was a produce ranch, shipping such by riverboat via the Petaluma River or the Port of Tomales 14 miles west. In 1905 Grampa King went in to the chicken business - (they were free range back then!) Paul's mother, ably assisted by Dad Praetzel started a furniture business in 1950 - soon becoming the largest retailer of quality furniture in the North Bay Area, and it continues today as Praetzel's Fine Furniture. With that generations' passing Paul & Judy took the smaller of the two homes on the property and outfitted it with fine furniture to provide guest housing for people on temporary stay in Petaluma. Probably the region's first short term fully furnished housing, before internet - advertising with the Chamber of Commerce and with local realtors. It proved a service for those in need of short Petaluma stays. We enjoy the pace and flow, the texture and assortment of lovely people to our property. We personally inspect and ok the house before each arrival and expect to be of happy service to you during your stay here.
Paul Praetzel purchased this cottage in 1870
This is the best wine country vacation rental we have ever had. We enjoyed it so much that we made reservations for next year. Every comfort of home is there. The pastoral setting is idyllic, and the proximity to the lively town of Petaluma, the beautiful vineyard country, and the ocean, make this the perfect Northern California retreat.
We have rented holiday homes previously and the Petaluma Farmhouse is now our favourite place to stay.
We have three small children and the quiet, privacy, of this site creates a perfect relaxed atmosphere.
The location of the guesthouse was excellent as well. It was only a few minutes to Petaluma for restaurants and shopping and then 20 minutes to Dillon Beach (not including our stops at the bakery at Tomales).
Paul Preatzel, the owner of the Petaluma Farmhouse makes you feel like a family member.
I would recommend this place to anyone especially to families.
