The warm, welcoming Art House offers a super comfortable bed, scrumptious breakfast, privacy, and knowledgeable, friendly hosts who've achieved Superhost status. The Art House is in a quiet neighborhood within easy walking distance of downtown.

The space

We provide warm hospitality at the Art House and love to take care of our guests. Your color-filled home away from home is full of interesting things to look at. The hidden guest bedroom features a super-comfortable queen canopy bed, original artwork, and a private Moorish-inspired full bathroom. Start your day with a home-cooked breakfast in the sunny dining room. Relax in the secluded, sun-dappled backyard sitting area, wander among the grape vines or take a peek at the chickens, who might be laying some eggs for breakfast. If you look up, you'll see our solar panels on the roof. You can feel good about minimizing your impact on the environment while staying with us!

We provide you with a convenient base for your visits to San Francisco, the Wine Country, Pt. Reyes National Seashore, the scenic Sonoma Coast and majestic redwoods. Stroll past gorgeous Victorian homes on your way to picture-perfect Petaluma’s historic downtown, full of boutiques, antique shops and scores of top-notch restaurants from diner-style to Michelin caliber. Just 35 miles north of San Francisco over the Golden Gate Bridge, Petaluma is a great spot for bicycling, kayaking, hiking and walking. Enjoy movies, live music and theater right in town, or take a short drive to the Green Music Center for world-class performances.

Besides a warm welcome and an easy, relaxing stay, we offer you free wi-fi and plenty of parking. We are experienced hosts, having provided home hospitality to international visitors for over two decades, and will gladly provide you with maps and tips on culinary tours, wineries, restaurants and local secrets. We look forward to welcoming you!

Our home in the small town of Petaluma is in a quiet residential neighborhood across the street from a park with mature trees and lots of grass. If you're not busy sightseeing, you can take advantage of the park's picnic tables, public tennis courts, playground, playing fields and a small, heated swimming pool. We're in easy walking distance of downtown, or you can drive there and park for free.

We are easily accessible by non-stop airport shuttle from San Francisco International and Oakland International airports. We would be happy to pick you up from the shuttle bus stop, schedule permitting. Otherwise, there are taxis usually waiting at the bus stop. Rental car companies can also pick you up at the bus stop. By rental car from San Francisco airport take Highway 101 all the way to Petaluma. We have ample street parking available. Please contact us for more precise directions.

Guest access

Guests are welcome to enjoy our living room, family room, dining room and backyard garden and patio.

Interaction with guests

We love chatting with our guests but respect your privacy and will only interact with you as much as you desire.

Other things to note

1) The City of Petaluma now requires all Airbnb hosts to collect 10% hotel tax to be remitted to the City. We will kindly ask you for the required sum upon arrival as Airbnb currently has no mechanism for collecting the tax on our behalf. (Transient Occupancy Tax Certificate No. 113.) Thank you for your understanding!

2) During the busy summer months we prefer two-night bookings on weekends. If we haven't booked the room by a week or so before your desired date, we're willing to book it for one night.

Deborah and Ron were wonderful hosts; they were thoughtful, engaging, and extra considerate to our schedule. They have an artful home showcasing their wide ranging experiences and interests. Our room was a clean and cozy spot to retreat to after a day of sightseeing. We felt welcomed into their home, comfortable as their guests and left with a feeling of having experienced a better sense of community. Thank you, Ron and Deborah!

At Art House, you will find interesting and pleasant people, a secret room, a delicious breakfast and a garden view while you eat. There is a park across the street and downtown is a short walk through the neighborhoods. Petaluma is a charming place and my personal favorite in this area.

What can I say about Deborah and Ron that admit already been said? They are gracious, wonderful conversationalists, and their home is adorable with personal and artistic touches in every aspect. We stayed for 2 nights after a camping tour of the National Parks and were immediately greeted and made to feel like family. Each morning, Deborah and Ron made breakfasts fit for royalty with fresh fruit, homemade granola, yogurt, and basically anything you could have asked for. They even prepare eggs from their own chickens! We had great conversations about everything under the sun! It felt as if we had known each other for years! Do yourself a favor and feel at home at Deborah and Ron's.

Deborah and Ron are great hosts! Their place was very welcoming and artsy!! The place reminds me a very cute story book. I loved all the lovely decorations and collections they had in their home. They made such a lovely breakfast treats by the window so we could see the view to their home garden in the morning. We had a great conversation over the breakfast since we are all in design/art industry. We shared each others stories and some of art work. This whole experience was very neat and private!! We visited Sonoma, Portuguese beach, Tomales Oyster company, Lagunitas brewery and Pataluma downtown. The Deborah's location was just perfect to explore all theses places around that area. What a great short get away! & New friends to visit next time is an great extra!!

Deborah & Ron's home is warm, welcoming, and full of beautiful artwork. The comfortable bedroom offers a chair for resting and a nice queen sized bed. I enjoyed the thick comforter as the mornings were chilly--even in July. Breakfast was exquisite--Deborah and Ron served eggs that were laid the day before from their own chickens, fresh local fruit, and homemade granola. My husband and I enjoyed conversing about our interests with them and hearing their recommendations for Sonoma wineries and local restaurants. Overall amazing value for this stay when you include the divine breakfasts and incomparable hospitality. Would highly recommend to anyone!
