Located in the historic Junior College (JC) neighborhood of Santa Rosa, in the heart of the Redwood Empire in Sonoma County. Enjoy the conveniences of this contemporary residence, in a neighborhood of Victorian and early 20th-century homes.

The space
This charming second-story flat, detached from the main house, offers the feeling of living in a tree-house, as the windows look directly into numerous trees that grace the property -- an old walnut orchard in the 1800's. A fully-stocked kitchen and living/dining area complement the two rooms and bath, all for your exclusive use. Many gourmet meals have been produced by our guests here! (The range & oven are gas!)

** Before contacting us for inquiries, please take a moment to create your AirBNB profile including verification (bio, phone, email, social media, photo, etc.), and tell us your trip itinerary in a message. At this time we are limiting our transactions to guests who have prior host reviews on record in their AirBNB profile. We utilize AirBNB in large part for the security it offers to both the guest and the host; please honor our request to provide this information before contacting us! **

Bicycle Heaven -
Secure, triple-locked indoor bicycle storage with basic tools and repair stand are included. Great if you are planning to do a lot of cycling while you're here. However, bicycle riding is NOT required!

Beds -
Master BR: Tempurpedic California King
2nd BR: Two Simmons Beautyrest TwinXL -- slide together to make a King (Let us know your preference before your arrival and we'll make up the bed as you like it)
Living Room: Folding Futon sleeps two good friends or kids

Convenience stores -
Three Mom and Pop (not 7/11, thank heaven) convenience store/delicatessens are located with 1 - 3 blocks easy walking distance -- the proverbial 'corner store'. Major shopping complexes with grocery and drug store are located just 5 short blocks away (Community Market, Pacific Market, CVS, Safeway)

Walkability -
Quaint downtown and Railroad Square Santa Rosa is just six short blocks away, featuring fine restaurants, the world-famous Russian River Brewery, theaters and more.

The Cozy B&B -
The unit is newer, constructed in 1968 on the site of the original horse carriage house. (Point of reference: The Ford Model T was introduced in 1909 -- two years after the main house was built.)

All-new paint, laminate flooring, bathroom remodel, and curtains in October 2013 make for a comfortable, clean and fresh escape.

We killed our television years ago. We hope you enjoy a TV-free experience. (Many guests bring laptops for streaming video.) We provide a nice quality AM/FM/BlueTooth radio for your enjoyment.

Guest access
Guests are afforded exclusive use of a full no-cost laundry room with washer, dryer and set-tub. An iron and ironing board await in the apartment closet, for those crisp wedding dresses and shirts. You'll enjoy a private enclosed patio/garden, and plenty of close by on-street parking. Your private yard is separated from the main house by a 6' fence for privacy.

Other things to note
Bicycle Rentals -

Host Geoffrey Smith owns and operates the BikePartners Bicycle Shop; we can rent you some fine folding touring bicycles during your stay at a friendly 25% discount per bike. Tour packages available! Please make your reservation and pay for your rental bikes on our website (www.bikepartners.net) (bikepartners period net); we'll work with you to arrange pickup and return.

Electric Vehicle Charging -

We provide complimentary EV charging using a Level 2 charger. Juice up your 100-mile range EV in just 5 hours, then tour Sonoma County emission-free. Thank you! (Don't have an EV? Check out Turo online)

PS - The energy comes from the solar panels on our roof

We pay our taxes -

Your nightly rate includes City of Santa Rosa 9% Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT) and 3% Tourism Bureau tax (e.g., for a $100 rental fee, we pay $12 in taxes.) We have paid our local taxes since the day we opened in 2013.

Local information -

As a Certified Tourism Ambassador (CTA), your host Geoffrey is very knowledgeable of local activities and destinations. The B&B has a good collection of guides and maps for your use. The nearby (1.3 miles) California Welcome Center in Railroad Square is a great resource for information.

Social Media -

Learn more about us and share your travel tips on that well-known social media web site that has 'face' and 'book' in its name, at 'TheBicycleBNB'

We support our business community -

We are a proud member of the Santa Rosa Chamber of Commerce.

Breakfast -

Beverages in the pantry include: drip coffee (locally roasted beans & grinder and instant), locally-produced tea, and cocoa. You'll also find an assortment of dry cereals and instant oatmeal. In the fridge you'll find chilled rice milk. Breakfast is generally sufficient for your first morning. For stays longer than two nights, we recommend a visit to a local market for breakfast fixings, or eat out at one of the many fine cafes in the neighborhood.

$$$$$$ Pricing -

Ours is a 2-bedroom unit, but we don't ding you if you only use one room. Hence our base price is based on 1-2 people, with a $25 per person increase for 3 or more guests. Our rates do not vary by season so you will not get any surprises when you book. Add to that the $75 (increased from our usual $50 fee due to the extra cleaning required for COVID-19 safety) cleaning fee and the AirBNB fee (up to 12%), and you have your total. We pay the local 12% occupancy tax, so you don't have to. Sweet!

Cleaning during extended stays -

For stays of longer than 7 days, we will enter the apartment to conduct a cleaning and linen change each week. This is not optional and will be coordinated with you for a convenient time.

Location

Santa Rosa, California, United States

The Junior College neighborhood is livable, walk-able, and really fun! The most sought-after neighborhood in Santa Rosa, you'll find the residents to be pleasant, the homes to be remarkable, and the nearby amenities convenient.

Strolls throughout the neighborhood offer splendid views of turn-of-the-century -- the LAST century, as in 1900 -- homes that have been lovingly restored and cared for. The word is charming! Just a few short blocks from popular Junior College dining and drinking establishments, and the quaint downtown Santa Rosa scene.

Well-known for it's wines and beer, Sonoma County is also highly regarded as one of the premier bicycling regions in the world. World-class professional racers train here regularly, and Santa Rosa has hosted the Tour of California race three (or is it four?) times! You'll enjoy miles of bucolic roads well-suited to cycling. The acclaimed 17-mile Joe Rodota Rail-Trail and the Santa Rosa Creek Trail both start just one mile from our home. The new SMART train bicycle pathway is being constructed now and will eventually extend over 50 miles from San Francisco Bay to Cloverdale.
