About this listing
Spacious, quiet room with soaring ceilings, beautiful light, and hardwood floors in a friendly, easygoing household in Sonoma County's Russian River Valley. Perfectly situated for wine tasting, biking, hiking, and more. (TOT Certificate#: 828N)
Located in the heart of Sonoma County's Russian River Valley--with easy access to wineries--this spacious master bedroom has a separate entrance, soaring ceilings, an airy sense of space, hardwood floors, and a large private bath with shower and jetted tub. This bright and sunny room has a supremely comfortable king-size bed, plus a fold-up foam futon for extra guests. Enjoy a beautiful view of the valley and hills from tall, eastern-facing windows.
Feel free to wander around our two-and-a-half acre property, which boasts large organic gardens, more than a hundred rose burshes, and a 60-foot lap pool. We are five minutes from Sonoma County's main bike trail and within easy riding distance of some of the county's most beautiful bike rides.
Want privacy, it's yours. Want to hang out and chat--we like that too. We're happy to share kitchen and laundry facilities, and you should feel free to browse our extensive library. Don't think of this like a hotel or even a traditional B&B. It's more like staying a friend's house. It's that laid back.
We no longer serve breakfast in the morning, but you are welcome to use the kitchen anytime you like.
Straight and gay-friendly. Children, babies, and hypo-allergenic dogs welcome.
Aperitif tasting and champagne cocktails at our winery in North Petaluma
Interaction with Guests
Depends on how much interaction the guest is interested in--we've had guests we rarely see, as well as guests we've literally spent hours with, chatting, cooking, or going out to dinner. All depends on our time schedule and the guests.
Other Things to Note
If you're driving up from the Bay Area, feel free to stop in at our winery, Sonoma Aperitif, in north Petaluma for a free aperitif/champagne cocktail tasting.
No smoking, please.
We generally have a two-night minimum on weekends, but feel free to contact us as the weekend draws near. If we're not booked by Friday, we'll do a one-day overnight.
At the end of a quiet street, Laura's home is a peaceful getaway. Delightful accommodations just as advertised. Beautiful lap pool; chilly weather prevented us from using but we still laid out in the sun. Most relaxing. Thanks, Laura and Chris.
So friendly and welcoming! Room is very large, comfortable, spacious, and with pretty views of the garden and pool. Loved staying here!
Wonderful stay in a large comfortable peaceful room and bathroom. Everything was spotless, spacious, and with beautiful views. The house and location are convenient and easily accessible which was important for us as we were attending a series of wedding related events in the area. As a result, we were leaving and returning early and late and the property set up allowed us to do so without feeling disruptive. We would very much like to return to the area when we have more time and we would certainly choose to stay here again.
A lovely stay! The room and bathroom were very pretty, comfortable and private, and filled with hundreds of interesting books! Laura and her family were fantastic hosts, and I really enjoyed joining them for coffee, conversation, and a fresh apple galette made with apples from their garden! Well located, a short drive from everywhere we wanted to visit.
We had a great experience staying with Laura and Chris. They were very friendly. The room was very spacious, and the bathroom quite large. There were vineyards nearby, and it was easy to get out to the coast.
Very large and beautiful room in a calm area. It was just a perfect experience.
I enjoyed staying with Laura and Chris. The room is large, with a nice desk. I did have to ask them to make some room for me in the refrigerator, but they were happy to accommodate me. The area is very quiet and out in nature. Laura and Chris made coffee each morning, which was wonderful. I definitely recommend staying with them! I didn't use it, but the tub in my room has jets for a mini-hot tub experience. A wonderful retreat setting.
