The space

This is a simple, unpretentious, home in west Petaluma. The streets are wide and tree shaded, and you are a walk or bike ride away from the historic downtown, the Petaluma River, and many local parks.

Dine out or dine in, or picnic in the back yard garden. Amble to the Farmer's market (Saturdays) and take your finds home to create in the vintage kitchen or just hang around the house and relax with the modern amenities of WiFi/ TV. Or pretend you're not connected, and play some board games.

You can catch a live act at the Mystic or the Phoenix, or stay home and jam on the piano or guitar. The walls are hung with local art and the organic cotton linens are fresh and new.

Take the scenic back roads west to the coast/Point Reyes, or east to the Sonoma and Napa Valley wine country; jaunt up to SF, or explore local history and antique stores -whatever your plans you'll find Petaluma a unique town that works as well as a destination as a starting point.

We wish you the best for your stay in Petaluma. Please feel free to ask any questions that you may have. Please note that as Airbnb is not yet supporting the web collection of transient occupancy taxes in Petaluma, we have to bill you for a separate payment when you arrive to cover the 10% occupancy tax. Hopefully soon airbnb will automate this process like they have for other jurisdictions.

Patricia is a gem and so is her home. Check in is at 5pm, so we spent the afternoon exploring Point Reyes Station just 30min away. Patricia met us at the house and made sure we knew how to turn on the heater on and work the cable TV. She gave us great suggestions for restaurants! Downtown Petaluma is just a 10min drive from her place and you can take Lyft or Uber so you didn't have to worry about parking. The wine country in Sonoma/Glen Ellen is 45min away and worth a day trip. The house is roomy. One room has a big bed, the other room down the hall has two smaller beds, all the mattresses were comfortable. The couch is super is roomy, I slept out in the living room and gave my mom and aunt the bedrooms. There's one bathroom, shower has great water pressure. The outside cat Ruby stays nearby, but keeps to herslef and doesn't come inside. Centrally located, but in a safe secluded neighborhood. Vintage charm, would recommend highly!

I am from Petaluma and visit at least once a year. My family and I are always looking for a good place to stay and so far this was the best we have stayed at. The location was great for us with access to the downtown area as well as local parks nearby for us to walk to with our kids. Look at the pictures and read the description before you book. This house is vintage with several vintage appliances. Do not book this house looking for state of the art amenities. The amenities serve their purpose and were adequate for what we needed. Patricia was a great host and delightful to talk to. We will definitely be looking to stay here again for our future visits.

For those looking on the VRBO website, you might have noticed that this property was marketed as "The Old Country." We didnt have quite the same room in the title section of this AirBnB listing, but the sentiment remains the same. "The Old Country" was the term my children used for this house after they left home. In fact, to this day, married and with different lives, they still refer to the house this way. Like immigrants to a new land recalling their roots, they always felt a connection to the house they grew up in. We hope potential visitors feel as welcome.
