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.
