About this listing
Full kitchen with everything you need, and a WiFi connection when you want to make reservations to eat out.
Detached guesthouse in the heart of the Wine Country on 2 acres.
Newly remodeled guesthouse. 1bdrm, 1bath with a full kitchen and fenced back yard with large covered patio, for enjoying a BBQ or partaking in some of your new found wine treasures.
We also have lots room off street for parking your car, truck, RV or boat. Also, your other gear like bikes or kayaks will be more than safe in your secluded back yard or on your covered patio if it rains.
Our location couldn't be any better, the West side of the Sonoma Mountains is where the locals hang out and wine taste. I've never stopped to count them, but I would guess that there are over 200 wineries within an hours drive of us.
We are 10 minutes to Historic Downtown Petaluma, 20 minutes to Historic Downtown Sonoma and the Sonoma Square, 25-35 minutes to the Russian River, Dry Creek Valley and Alexander Valley wine regions (the best wine tasting this side of the Golden Gate Bridge), 45 minutes to Bodega Bay, 35 minutes to Napa, and 45 minutes to the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco. We're also 35 minutes to Lake Sonoma, (great fishing for Steel-head Trout or Bass), for a fun day on the lake.
Are the Peanuts comic strips your thing? We are 15 minutes from the Charles Schultz Museum with the "Snoopy's Home Ice" skating rink in Santa Rosa.
For an amazing day trip, we are just over 2 hours to Mendocino and the Lost Coast. Our proximity to Bodega Bay means warmer winters and cooler summers.
Summer days average in the upper 80's to low 90's, with the nights getting into the low 50's.
Winter days run in the upper 50's and low 60's, with nights dipping into the low 30's. It's not unusual to see the local hills with a light dusting of snow for Christmas.
We are located out in the country a bit in the town of Penngrove, and with the exception of one neighbor, we are surrounded by rolling hills and horse pasture on all sides. We are a 10 minute drive to anything you might need be it a drug store, restaurants, tavern, movie theater, super market, pack 'n ship, hardware store, or hospital.
If quiet is what you are looking for, you will have found it here. Each afternoon you will be treated to a sun setting into the eucalyptus grove across the field, and an evening sky full of stars. Each morning, you can enjoy a big mug of locally roasted, fresh brewed coffee on your patio, or take a short 10 minute walk down to our local coffee house/cafe, JavAmore' for a wonderful breakfast, either way, it's hard to beat a Sonoma morning.
The guesthouse is non-smoking. You are welcome to smoke on the patio with the sliding door closed.
The kitchen has everything you would need to cook for a family of 4, with granite counter tops and stainless steal appliances.
The bedroom has recessed lighting, and a 6ft closet for all of your vacation gear. It has a queen size bed with night stands and a large dresser if you chose to make it an extended stay.
The bathroom is truly special, with a restored 120yr old claw-foot tub, and an antique dresser turned bath vanity with a custom stone vanity top.
The living room is furnished with a queen size sofa bed, end tables, coffee table, entertainment center, fire place, flat screen TV with cable, and free Wi Fi.
For your safety, our guesthouse is equipped with smoke detectors, a CO detector and a fire extinguisher.

Java Amore Coffee Shop
Max's Bar and Grill
The Penngrove Pub
The Penngrove Post Office
As well as a Nail and Hair Salon, and of course, a Head Shop and Dispensary.
We are in the country, so the whole place is pretty quiet, yet we are a 10 minute drive to just about anything you would need, from restaurants, and grocery stores, to wineries and great antique shopping.
We are not on the mountain, so no steep, dark, pot holed roads to navigate on your way home after a long day of wine tasting and sight seeing.
We have a bus stop 1/2 mile from us at the end of our street, that will allow you to get anywhere in the North Bay and down into San Francisco.
In addition to that, our Light Rail System is almost complete, that will allow you to go from here 45 minutes North and 45 minutes South, allowing you to head North and do some great wine tasting, or head South to Larkspur and catch the Ferry into San Francisco. All without ever getting behind the wheel and driving.
