About this listing

Tucked away on a country lane, Pete's Retreat offers you peace and serenity in its rural country location.. Enjoy being in the midst of the Russian River and Wineries without the traffic and congestion of more populated areas.

The space

Pete's Retreat is a 400 square foot accommodation that features a comfortable Queen-sized bed on the first floor, an en suite bathroom with shower, with a loft lounge upstairs reached via a wrought iron spiral staircase.

Pete's Retreat does not have a kitchen. There is a Gas BBQ with a side burner on the private patio and inside Pete's has a wet bar area which includes the following amenities: Coffee Maker, Coffee Bean Grinder & Filters, Electric Water Boiler, Microwave Oven, Toaster Oven, Blender, Dishwasher and small full-size Refrigerator. We provide cooking equipment and utensils as well as dishes, silverware, cups and glassware.

Pete's Retreat sits next to the owner’s residence. It is in a quiet and peaceful setting. The owners are experienced hosts who give their guests privacy, but are usually on hand in case they are needed.

Forestville is a small community situated in the midst of a thriving wine growing region. There are several hundred wineries surrounding our town. You will also find restaurants and shops within a short drive. For those of you who enjoy canoeing, the Russian River is about a mile away. If it’s hiking you enjoy, Armstrong Redwood park is a short 7-mile drive or if you prefer ocean views, the Pacific Ocean is a half hours drive west. If you are visiting our area from another state or country, Forestville is close enough to San Francisco that a day visit is certainly an option!

Nestled in among the Redwoods and vineyards, our romantic Rental offers the best of Sonoma County's Wine Region!

A beautiful secluded spot in a remote, yet very interesting part of Sonoma. The cottage is small but has been crafted creatively and marvelously into a very comfortable and cozy space. The spacious grounds all around make for a memorable, scenic and relaxing stay. We had a delightful time and hope to be back just as soon as we can!

What a wonderful place! Ana and Peter's guest house has everything a guest needs and they are such wonderful hosts! Great communication before and during our stay, and every detail was thought of. The guest house is clean, charming, comfortable, peaceful and totally private, and the surroundings so beautiful. Having the hot tub just outside the door made it so easy to just hop in any time, so we used it quite a bit. Having the use of the pool is a huge plus, and Ana and Peter made us feel completely welcome to all of the grounds. There's a wonderful market nearby and additional grocery shopping in the next town. We went canoeing down the Russian River, and the facility is just down the road from the home. There's a nice restaurant nearby as well. We are so happy we found Pete's Retreat, everything was perfect with our stay! Thank you Peter and Ana!

A perfect getaway from the city. The hot tub is ideal for unwinding, as is the grill to cookout under the Sonoma stars. Inside, the world map makes the space--it's one of the more unique spots I've seen. The spiral staircase to a living room type nook is also incredible. Highly recommended! Can't wait to come back : )

What a pleasure to stay on this beautiful land surrounded by an erupting garden, majestic redwoods, a peaceful hottub, and the beautiful nearby nature such as Armstrong Woods and the Russian River. The map inside the house lead my girlfriend and I to reminisce for hours about our past travels and dream up new goals. Absolutely perfect.

Lovely and secluded. Great to hang out in the sun by the pool. Easy drive to wineries, Russian River and Healdsburg foodie scene.

Peter and I enjoy a retired lifestyle. We have traveled extensively throughout the world and enjoy meeting and staying in touch with the people we have met on these trips. We are a quiet fun loving couple living on a property in the Northern California wine region that we acquired in 1981. Our property mirrors our interest for the beauty of life. We have extensive gardens where we enjoy the many plants and creatures that call our land home. Peter enjoys playing music and is a drummer in a band, plays guitar, Ukulele, and the cello. Ana loves to cook and entertain and enjoys learning about the cuisine of all the places she visits. I would say we are gentle, happy, and considerate people.
