Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Gateway to the wine country exceeded our expectations. It was beautiful, private, comfortable, and even had a pool, tennis court and sauna at our disposal! Ellen and Bob were warm and accommodating to all our needs, they made us feel at home. Thank you again and we hope to be back!

  • We were in the middle of a norcal tour and had the pleasure of spending a night at Ellen and Bob's. The guesthouse has everything you need, is clean and comfortable and walking distance to the downtown area. We were a bit tired upon arrival but were able to play tennis on their court as well as go for a swim in the pool. Central Market was great for dinner and LaGuinta's brewery for an "around the world" beer sampler capped our day in Petaluma!

  • Ellen is a great communicator. She helped us find great dining in Petaluma. The room offered is private and delightful. The bed is a good quality sofa bed with luxury linens. My husband is tall and would have loved more firmness, but it is quite comfortable. There is a sauna, which was my delight. Our stay was brief, and we see how wonderful it would be to stay longer and enjoy the pool and explore Petaluma more. We had a spectacular breakfast at DELLA FATTORIA which was the most vibrant spot in town. Reservation for breakfast recommended.

  • This is was our first time using Air B&B and we were very happy with our accommodations. The lodging was as pictured and in a great location. We were able to walk into historic Petaluma in the mornings and evenings. We spent most of our time going hiking in Point Reyes, which was a convenient drive from this location. Wine country is near by as well. Ellen (email hidden)- gave us ideas for places to eat, wineries to visit etc. We would definitely stay again. Thanks for the wonderful lodging.

  • Ellen was such an amazing host! She made my husband and I feel so at home from the minute we arrived. She provided the BEST recommendations - try central market for dinner, you will not be disappointed!

    As far as the accommodations, they were out of this world nice! The pool house was perfect. It had everything we needed and was so extremely cosy. We also enjoyed using the pool and the sauna. Ahh, I'm ready to go back already!

    I would recommend this place to everyone!!!

  • Staying at Ellen's pool house was great! It was clean, nicely furnished, and in a perfect location. Ellen was super nice and recommended some nice breakfast places for my wife and I to try out in Petaluma, and they were excellent! Her and her husband were very kind and respected our privacy! I would definitely recommend!

  • This was our favorite place we have ever stayed. Ellen and Bob were so helpful and friendly, that we felt like long-time friends after just driving up. The room was very spacious and comfortable, and we loved lounging out in the outdoor kitchen area by the pool. Just a short drive from Sonoma, this was the prefect place to stay while exploring the wine country. You will never find a better value.
