Nestled securely 30 feet up in a majestic multi-trunked 110 ft. eucalyptus tree is our romantic multi-leveled Tree House. Spacious deck, relaxing area on main level and queen bed in the loft. Beautifully rural yet 5 minutes to Petaluma. Easy drive to S.F., wine country and coast.
Staying here is a true and honest tree house experience. Wind your way up three staircase levels meandering through the trunks to a spacious railed deck overlooking our surroundings of classic California countryside views. Enter the tree house to find a cozy space on two levels: twin bed/couch relaxing area downstairs and up a ladder to a comfy, nicely appointed and canopied queen bed in the loft. You'll have to be moderately agile with an adventurous spirit to get up there but it's worth it! One of the trunks juts right through the interior floor and the pitched roof and sways some in the wind. Three other trunks poke through the deck at various places. Windows on all sides, some of stained glass, and decks on three sides give you 360 degree views of vineyards, horse farms, rolling hills and forests. You can use the chemical potty in a separate toilet room in the tree house and/or the full rustic bathroom with shower in our barn not too far away. Find shelves full of reading matter, battery operated lighting and interesting touches throughout the space. Go back out on the deck, sit at a table, have a glass of wine and watch one of our lovely sunsets from 30 feet up in a tree! A great breakfast is served in a charming kitchen in the main house and we'd love to join you if so desired.
When not in the tree house explore our magical, very quiet and rural setting that's only 5 minutes from historic downtown Petaluma. It's also an easy drive to the incredibly beautiful Northern California Pacific coast and the Point Reyes National Seashore, San Francisco, Napa and Sonoma wine country areas or redwood forests if you prefer. Chileno Valley Road is a famous international bike riding route.
In the 1970's this property was Swallowtail Studios, a famous glass blowers cooperative. The Grateful Dead played in the big barn and hung out here...their manager lived just down the road. The barn is redwood, quite large and beautiful, with stained glass windows. It's suitable for events and is available for an extra fee.

we very much like to get to know our guests, especially at breakfast!
1. you're up there high in the tree so we have to keep everything toned down...it's just for two adults max (no children, no pets) who want a quiet getaway.
2. no smoking, no flame of any kind...severe fire danger.

Michelle and Bill were so wonderful. They showed great hospitality and were so warm and welcoming. This was our first airbnb experience and it will be one that we never forget. I didn't stop smiling from the second we arrived as tree houses are a dream of mine. We will definitely be back! Thank you so very much
Matthew and I had an incredible time. The tree house was cozy and romantic. We enjoyed the sunset as well as the delicious breakfast and lovely morning conversation. We are excited to come back in the summer to try the other tree house :)
How wonderful to sleep in a tree house! We had a great time! Bill and Michelle were lovely and we had all we needed. I definitely recommend staying with them :)
The treehouse was magical, and on a chilly February night we were bundled up in the warm loft blankets, listening to the owls. Be sure to take a late night stargazing break! Many thanks to Bill and Michelle for a delicious breakfast and good conversation. We're inspired to someday find our own barn in the countryside.
From the drive there to seeing Michelle & Bill's home was incredible! It was nice to see the beautiful hill views, animals and of course the quaint treehouse. With our entrance we had a nice greeting from Bill who kindly informed us with our accommodations and showed us around. The treehouse was so dreamy and so thankful they had this place to fulfill our childhood dream so I adored the design, little decorations they had in the treehouse. It made us feel homey and comfortable. The sleep was amazing, being that we were able to enjoy each other's company and listening to the tree breathing and moving as well by the wind. The next morning the view out the treehouse was wonderful looking out in the crisp morning. Our breakfast with Michelle topped it off being able to talk to her and other visitors who rented the other cottage. We leave with unforgettable memories and views from this dreamy county!!
Bill and Michelle are super friendly and nice and made our stay a pleasure. The whole experience was absolutely great!
Amazing experience!! Can't wait to go back!! Very friendly and welcoming hosts, delicious breakfast
