3 Bedroom, 1 1/2 Baths, Sleeps 5, Gourmet Kitchen, And Backyard Deck.

Visit our delightful Red Cottage within walking distance to historic downtown Petaluma. We are centrally located in the wine country with easy drives to Sonoma and Napa. The cottage is only a thirty-minute drive to downtown San Francisco and the Sonoma coast. Tomales Bay, Bodega Bay, Point Reyes, and Jenner are some of the sites you'll want to see. And lots more.

The cottage has three bedrooms and a bath and a half. One bedroom has two twin beds, one has a queen bed, and the third room has a twin. Between the bedrooms there is a full bath with a large vanity and a bathtub/shower enclosure. The open floor plan includes the kitchen, dining room, and living room. The fully-stocked kitchen has everything you will need to prepare meals at home. The dining room has a large table that seats six comfortably and can accommodate eight, if needed. The spacious living room includes a flat-screen TV, comfortable sofa, two side-chairs, and a game table with seating. Off the kitchen you'll find a washer and dryer and a half-bath. The cottage includes a large deck, off the back of the house, where you can relax and enjoy your stay. The cottage also has wifi.

Because of the size of the cottage we do not invite children under the age of 18 to stay at the red cottage. Thank you for understanding.

About Jo Ann George

I grew up in Woodside, Ca. I have a passion for color and design. I love fixing up houses and have done this all of my life. I also owned a Marimekko fabric store in Palo Alto, Ca. My last career was staging homes for realtors. And there's one more thing...I love food. Yes, I'm a foodie. So please come and visit. I think you will really enjoy The Red Cottage as it is a combination of all of my talents.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

From the wonderful cookies freshly baked for us to the beautifully decorated and incredibly comfortable home, this was by far the best rental experience I've had. The house is bigger than it looks like. We had four adults and one child and it was more than enough room. We also entertained family and both the dining table and the porch were more than big enough. The kitchen was well stocked and really nice! Whole Foods was an easy walk and Starbucks was a block down the road. JoAnne is a delight--super friendly and accommodating. She lives behind the house and is both available and let's you have your privacy. Couldn't be happier! We will definitely be back!

Fantastic property, Convenient Location, and Wonderful Host

  • 5 of 5

Overall the home is absolutely adorable with fantastic attention to detail. Kitchen was wonderfully equipped, right next to a great little backyard patio that gets the perfect breeze. The host was delightful and accommodating. We arrived to a huge plate of wonderful cookies and the home was set just so perfectly to be welcoming from the moment we walked in. I look forward to our return trip to this home!

Darling place, lovely host

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights here as a family of 5. The home is lovely and there isn't a thing we would suggest to improve. We walked all over downtown Petaluma easily. JoAnn is a lovely host who was so friendly and extremely accessible although we didn't have to bother her over anything as the stay was perfect. Highly recommend
