The Space

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.

We have a good supply of local area attraction brochures and maps for your use. We are also happy to provide you with suggestions, if you like, depending on your personal interests.

All proceeds are donated to local animal rescue groups or to the wonderful PAWS wild animal rescue sanctuary in the Gold Country.

We have 4 fine rescue dogs and 4 cats. Your small well-behaved, housebroken dog/cat may be considered. But please provide information, in advance, about your pet so we can assess the 'fit'. A small fee will apply.

Unfortunately, no children under 10 please, as my dogs aren't at their best with children.

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns. Thanks for your interest in Pelo del Perro Farm.

  • Lovely stay and setting. Woke to local folks picking lavender in the field beside the house. Incredibly charming and generous in everyday. Coffee and fresh fruit waiting in the morning. Bed was extremely comfortable. Quiet, serene and calming. Nancy is incredibly giving. Highly recommend.

  • Nancy is a kind and helpful host with plenty of suggestions. We were visiting to do some wine tasting, but she encouraged us to drive out to the coast at Bodega Bay in the morning, and we were so glad we did. It was beautiful. She also offered to fix us breakfast, so we started the day with eggs and toast.

    Nancy had a another guest staying in her upper room, and we enjoyed getting to know her, too. Each morning, we would all make our way to the kitchen to drink our tea and coffee and talk while making breakfast.

    Though we only stayed two nights, the bed was comfortable, the house and property were charming, and it was definitely a great spot for animal lovers!

  • The country setting was peaceful and beautiful with birds singing and deer in the meadow. The night sky provided a spectacular star-lit vista. The small town was within an eight minute drive; very charming with quaint shops and great eateries. Got to walk on the beach nearly every day. Nancy was most helpful and generous. Her passion for saving and nurturing animals was clearly evident.

  • we had a great time at Nancy's farmhouse, a step back in time!
    the bedroom is cozy and comfortable, Nancy is the perfect host and the location is close to town and the ocean, a perfect choice!

  • We had a delightful time at Nancy's property. The gorgeous house is just oozing character and Nancy is a very kind and generous person. We were visiting primarily for the bike tours, and of the four rides we have done in California wine country, this one has been the most idyllic.

    The breakfast was simple and delicious - made with farm fresh eggs that were a vibrant yellow/orange. Incredible.

    And to top it all off, your stay will further Nancy's good work with animals.

  • Nancy was the best host we could have hoped for! She is interesting and generous and just lovely. She had great suggestions about where to go in the area. The farm house is very peaceful and well appointed. It was better than the photos. Our bed was so comfy and the company was so nice it was hard to leave in the morning. The location is excellent, too. Just outside of downtown Sebastopol but it feels like you're in the countryside. The perfect location for unwinding and exploring all that the Russian River Valley has to offer. We can't wait to go back.

  • Lulu and I enjoyed our stay at Nancy's quaint farmhouse. Our room was lovely and spacious. The farmhouse is situated in a rural setting...We were there in the Fall and I'm sure it's just as wonderful in the Spring. Nancy was a wonderful host and very helpful and accommodating.

About
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.
