A great location to relax and getaway, or as a home base for your Bay Area Adventure. Enjoy watching the birds in the marshes of the Petaluma River. Just 1/10 mile down the road is a boat launch for kayakers, boaters and fisherman. A short drive to Sonoma and Napa for winery visits. Novato has a fabulous downtown with quaint shops and excellent restaurants. Sonoma Raceway is only 6 miles down the road for any race fans. San Francisco and Oakland are less than an hour away.
The Boathouse has a fully equipped kitchen, large bathroom with shower, and a living room/bedroom with a pull-out couch, a pillow-top queen bed, a LED flat screen TV and wifi internet.
Just outside the cottage is a private deck bordering the marsh with dining seating for 6.
The Boathouse is located at the bottom of approximately 2 1/2 flights of stairs. Access is by foot only.
Although we have lived here for over 3 years, coming home still feels like being on vacation! We look forward to sharing our cottage with you.
Randi Bakken purchased this cottage in 2011
After living in suburban neighborhoods our whole lives, we never realized how amazing an undisturbed view into nature really is. One look out the window had us convinced we couldn't be anywhere else!
The Boathouse has a definite away-from-it-all, country feel - but is still just a few minutes from downtown Novato, Safeway, Target, and Costco.
My two friends from college and I had a wonderful reunion at this cheerful and picturesque cottage on marshland not far from the Petaluma River. The cottage was clean with a spacious kitchen and bathroom and with all amenities there. The cottage is in close proximity to Marin/Sonoma (creameries and Point Reyes and Sebastopol) as well as Napa. Look forward to returning some day. Aloha to Randi and family for being wonderful hosts.
Loved our stay and hope to go back.
Great views, comfy and had everything we needed and more! Appreciate the owners making us feel so welcome.
Owners are nice and accommodating. Unit in very good condition and very clean....quiet setting, other than some hywy noise from 37. I enjoyed my stay and hope to stay again in the future.
This place is a find. Great views, great location! Felt like home!
We thoroughly enjoyed staying here. The place is small but very nicely put together. Randi was the perfect hostess and very helpful. The only surprise we had was how close it is to Hwy 37 - you do get some commuter noise, but not too bad. The stairs down are not bad at all, and being so close to the river was very special. We will definitely come back.
The cottage was perfect for our small family. Great location with beautiful views near Sonoma Raceway. House is super cute, has a very comfy queen bed, pull out sofa, kitchen with everything you need (and a great view) and a roomy bathroom. We travel to the raceway a few times a year and will stay here every time its available. Owners are incredibly kind and helpful.
Halfway between San Francisco and wine country - it's the ideal location for a getaway! Take the ferry from Larkspur to San Francisco. Napa is 24 miles and Sonoma 16 miles. Sonoma Raceway is just 6 miles down the road. Excellent kayaking and boting with the launch 1/4 mile down the road. Easy access to Point Reyes.
