About this listing
Looking for a chance to unwind or a quiet place to recharge as you enjoy many adventures in Sonoma County? Come check out the tranquility of our quiet, country property.
Relax and rejuvenate in a peaceful, private studio cottage nestled by oak trees and surrounded by pastures of sheep and cows. The cottage is separate from the main house and granny unit, all of which are located on 2 beautiful acres. Sit back in the hammock and enjoy the sounds of songbirds and watch the dragonflies flit through the garden or jump in the large solar-heated pool (20' x 40’) or hot tub. The cottage is equipped with 1/2 bath, and a shower is available in pool house.
Located just 15 minutes from historic Petaluma, the Cottage provides a glimpse into rural Petaluma life with quick access to great restaurants, wineries, breweries, live theater, antique stores, kayaking, and hiking, without the hustle and bustle. We are about 30 minutes to the beach or Point Reyes National Seashore, and a quick hop to Sonoma or Napa and less than an hour from San Francisco.
Life is quiet here. Come see. Free wi-fi and parking.
Interaction with Guests
We are happy to welcome you to our country paradise and give you lots of ideas and recommendations for dining and activities. Beki is a native Petaluman. Feel free to contact us during your stay, but we will give you plenty of privacy.
Rather than sirens and car horns, you will hear goats, sheep, horses and cows as they graze nearby. We have lots of birds and butterflies. There are no street lights so the neighborhood is full of stars at night.
The cottage is about 4 miles from the nearest bus stop so most guests prefer to travel by car.

No pets and no smoking. Hot tub closes at 10 p.m.
We had a lovely stay in the Oak Grove cottage. It was quiet, secluded and very relaxing. Loved the hot tub, although it was too chilly to use the pool. Beki graciously accommodated our slightly change arrival time, and checking out was really simple. Recommended!!
Mike and Beki were very gracious to allow us to stay with just one day's notice which we really appreciate and also to bring our infant. The cottage, property and pool were very nice. The bed was comfortable and the room was filled with natural light and ventilation.
We loved our stay at the cottage. It was private yet homey. Becki provides lots of information about local things to do. We would definitely recommend this spot to any couple looking for a quiet Sonoma county getaway.
Great getaway spot! We met Beki upon check-in and she showed us around the property and where everything we would need was! The accommodations worked perfectly for our night away. We were unable to take advantage of the pool. Being in a relatively remote location, it was very quiet which was quite enjoyable. Would definitely consider returning!
Our stay here was amazing! Mike and Beki were great hosts who were great to talk with and they were just really down to earth people. If the opportunity arose I would stay here again with no hesitation!
Bev and Mike have a quick and friendly greeting, really nice. The location was very easy to find and was a very nice ranch style property with baby goats and two wonderful black labs that keep guard and are extremely friendly. The cottage room was very clean.
