Step into the spirit of Early California Sonoma by staying at Casa la Paloma – one of Sonoma’s historic homes from the mid 1800s. It has been carefully renovated for comfort, convenience, the maintenance of its historic character and has received awards from the Historic Society. Filled with old world charm of Spanish/Mexican California, it is located right downtown only a block from the Plaza. It’s unique location provides you with the comfortable feeling of being in a neighborhood and the fun of being only a short stroll from the life of the Plaza – walk to the Farmer’s Market, the best restaurants, the historic Sebastiani theater and endless wine tastings. You’ll be pleased you don’t have to drive home!
Casa La Paloma has a lovely spacious backyard with old fruit trees, flowers & a pond with a fountain. Here, you can bar-be-que, have a family party, entertain friends for supper or just relax.
The large Great Room, with it’s original Salt Box architecture, creates a wonderful space with antique Spanish furnishings and charmingly combines the kitchen, dining area with a table for 8 and the living room.
The kitchen has everything you could need for quick meals or a gourmet dinner party.
In the old Parlor/Library you can quietly read, watch TV, check your email or send the kids there to play board games.
Off the Great Room you’ll find the Master Bedroom with it’s beautiful eclectic antique furnishings including a queen wrought iron canopied bed, European armoire and French doors which open to the patio. The adjoining spacious Master Bath has been completely remodeled for comfort.
The seconded downstairs Bedroom is in the heart of the older part of the house. It has a queen brass bed and is romantic, cozy and charming. Here, the spirit of the building welcomes you warmly.
Upstairs, in the older part of the house, there are 2 more bedrooms.
Sunny and sweet, the room on the right has a touch of French antique décor, a full size bed and lots of closet space.
The bedroom on the left, also sunny and warm, has a full brass bed and a wrought iron single. Perhaps this is the best room for the children or a couple with a child.
There is no bathroom upstairs in this part of the old historic house.
Just downstairs off the kitchen, there is a second small newly remodeled bathroom with a corner shower which is shared with the downstairs bedroom.
The spaciousness, lovely garden and great location make Casa La Paloma a perfect location for special events – a place for the wedding friends and family to stay or even host the rehearsal dinner, host out of town guests who have come for a conference or workshop and would like to stay longer to tour the area etc.
Casa La Paloma’s few historic eccentricities are well offset by it’s great location, charm, and it’s feeling of old Sonoma.
