Antique-furnished cozy, nostalgic bedroom (double bed) in a charming old wine country farmhouse situated on 8 acres on Atascadero Creek. Enjoy a simple healthy breakfast, with good coffee or tea, at your leisure. Read a book (we have a pretty good library in the house) or sip a glass of afternoon wine on the wraparound porch and watch the birds down at the creek and the barn owls hunting over the lower field at sundown. Enjoy our lush blackberry bushes fruit trees, and our acre of French lavender in full bloom in summer (you're invited to take some home to enjoy). Search for arrowheads....the property was an important Coast Miwok gathering site. Walk to town or the French Garden for a good meal or bushwhack through the field to Ragle Ranch Park. Great food, music, hiking, entertainment, quirky little off-the-beaten-path towns, and the beach are just a short drive away. Be sure to see the relatively recent NYT travel article on Sebastopol. Come enjoy it while the area is relatively unspoiled.

Nancy was a true pleasure to stay with. Kind, thoughtful, respectful, helpful and fun. Her farm is a peaceful spot, perfect for a getaway. Could not have asked for a better stay!
From the very first electronic exchange to the last personal salutations, Nancy was a complete pleasure to interact with. Her property is beautiful, her farmhouse is wonderful, and the small bedroom offered my wife and I some of the best sleep we've had in a long time. We are already making plans to return to the farmhouse.
It is perfectly located, far enough from noise and light pollution to truly embrace the enveloping natural suroundings and close enough to Sabastopol to enjoy all of the great offerings of a "Cittaslow" rated town. (website hidden)
I highly recommend it to anybody looking to get away and experience the Northern California country side and it's only about 1 hour north of San Franscisco.
What a great location for a relaxing visit. The bed was super comfortable - had a wonderful sleep each night.
Nature's magic happens here at night. You will have to come and stay to find out what that is...
Host was very welcoming and i felt right at home...Room was comfortable and exactly what i needed...I appreciate being able to stay at this warm and comfortable abode...I wiah i had the time to take Nan up on her breakfast.. Maybe another time.
We enjoyed the sweet farm that Nancy offers to wayfaring folks. We stayed in the small bedroom which is small... but her house is warm and welcoming. The breakfast was tasty and the surroundings couldn't have been more peaceful. Shared bathroom worked out fine. Next time I would stay in the attic room. It was so cozy and a bit bigger. Sebastopol area is lovely and the people there are so friendly. It might be a good choice for retirement. Hmmmmmmm.
Wonderful fall weekend at Nancy's. Our second time here and it was like staying over with friends - great conversation, lovely breakfast and good tips on where to go and what to do.
We walked through the property gardens which are decorated with art from local artists. The room is very tasteful and homey. It was great to see the dogs again!

I'm a semi-retired CPA/investment advisor, now enjoying a much simpler and quieter life on my little farm, which I bought three years ago for a complete makeover. I volunteer at the local Humane Society and do a lot of fundraising and advocacy work on behalf of animals. I'm a big reader, traveler, antique afficionado and less big but enthusiastic cook and gardener. Also love to hike, with or without the dogs. I have one grown daughter, an entomologist, so I try to tolerate, if not love, bugs.
When I travel, I love staying in quiet, old B+B's and am delighted to be able to provide an unusual and cozy place for others who appreciate old houses, antiques, nature, serenity...and animals.
