Charming Sonoma County House and Garden

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

A beautiful and comfortable non-smoking home surrounded by lovely gardens in a charming westside Petaluma neighborhood. The house was built in 1936 and has been lovingly maintained. So much charm and character.

The walls are painted in relaxing colors. The furniture is comfortable and cozy. Numerous places to curl up and take a nap. The beautifully designed kitchen creates an inviting place to prepare delicious meals from the vast array of Sonoma County's bounty of good food. Most guests don't want to get out of the beds (1 king & 1 queen), they are so comfortable. The art work is varied and eclectic.

There is an outdoor living room overlooking the back yard. Once inside the arched gate which closes off the driveway, you are in a private garden. You can wander from the hammock, to the chairs under the plum trees, then move to the rose garden; passing under rose covered trellises.

Walk to the charming downtown of Petaluma. Drive to Point Reyes, through Napa and Sonoma Valleys, or across the Golden Gate into San Francisco.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Thank You. Thank you for letting us rent your house. The backyard is great. The decor is nice, the rooms are very nice. I especially love the stuffies. My mom said 'The kitchen alone made it worth renting the house.' Thanks, Amelia"

Lovely house and area

  • 5 of 5

We were five people (two couples and a single) so needed three bedrooms. All were comfortable and very nicely furnished. We enjoyed the decoration as well as the fact that the house is so well equipped; we cooked every night in the very large and pleasant kitchen. The garden was also beautiful, with a great back patio. We used Petaluma as a base to travel to San Francisco and the Napa Valley, and the community itself is very pleasant, especially the old town. We would go back any time, especially given the reasonable price for that many guests. It was easy to work with Jack--no surprises.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

It was a great house with plenty of room and all the amenities. It was a good central location for our brewery and wine tour of the area. The neighborhood was quiet so we could relax after running around the area all day. We didn't use the kitchen much but it was fully stocked with all the tools you would need to make meal. The beds were soft and comfortable. We settled into a daily routine which is the mark of a great stay.

We stayed here in October and loved it. Great location. Close to town yet on a quiet street. Cute. Quaint. Very clean. Very comfy beds! Nice amenities. Kitchen had everything you would need if you chose to cook there but so many tempting restaurants closeby it's hard to decide. Ended up making exceptional breakfasts most days from the bounty available at the local market. Look forward to staying there again soon.

beautiful grounds and very comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for a month at this property while waiting to move into our recently bought home in Petaluma. It was greatl! I had hurt my hip while moving out of our old house and after being in this house for a couple of days my hip felt fine. It is a very relaxing place to stay with every amenity. I heartedly recommend this house. The owner kept in touch with us while he was on vacation to make sure everything was going right.

Adorable Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This little home away from home was wonderful. Comfy living room, fully equipped kitchen, darling patio and the most amazingly comfortable beds I have ever encountered. The place was spotlessly clean and everything worked. The owner is easy to deal with and quick to respond. And the bonus was that the house is walking distance from everything we wanted to do in Petaluma (pubs, groceries, the amazing Central Market Restaurant). I would not hesitate to rent here again and I will recommend it to my friends. Thank you, Jack, for a truly enjoyable stay.

a fabulous stay!

Dear Jack

We just returned to Canada after a wonderful stay at you home in Petaluma! Your cosy place was absolutely perfect for the 11 days we were there. We had our granddaughter with us most of the time and this little 3 year old had a fabulous time inside and in the beautiful backyard. The privacy, the flowers, trees and birds all added to a most enjoyable experience for us all.

We love cooking good healthy food and the FULLY appointed kitchen allowed us prepare all the meals and even have guests over for dinner. All was provided!

We have not stayed at a place that was in every respect so comfortable, clean and so well appointed as your charming house. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to enjoy you place as much as we did. We will let you know well in advance when we plan to come back to Petaluma to make sure we again may stay you home again.
