About This Listing
Room and a private bath available in quiet home. The kitchen is available for preparing your food. My home is about a 10 minute drive from the county park of Spring Lake (329 acres with a 72 acre lake and a paved trail surrounding it) and a state park, Annadel (5200 acre park with 40 miles of hiking trails and a 26 acres lake). Being about a mile and a half from downtown, there are many wonderful restaurants, local shops as well as the central library and post office. There is public transportation about a block away. This is an ideal accommodation for 1 person who is visiting relatives, on business or taking a course. I have one indoor cat who is sweet and well behaved! Since this is my home, I do appreciate your being responsible for picking up after yourself. This accommodation is available for a maximum three night stay.
It's best if you can give me a week notice before your stay. Same day accommodation is not available. Thanks!!
Guest have access to the kitchen to prepare simple meals. There is no laundry facility available to guest. There is wireless internet. There is no air conditioning but every room in the house has a ceiling fan and of course, central heat for the winter. Hot showers are available in the private bath, but due to the drought here in California and water restrictions, I request you do not take a bath. Guests park on the street
Interaction with Guests
I am happy to share information about hiking or biking trails, restaurants and any special entertainment that might be happening in Sonoma County during your stay. Therapy and drama is best left to a qualified therapist for ease of our interaction and your stay! I would also appreciate, as would other guests who follow you, if you could refrain from heavily scented products. Thanks.
This is a neighborhood was built in the 50's and currently is a mix of renters and homeowners. There are several families on the block so it's well rounded with the age factor.
There is a bus line about 2 blocks away. The bus schedule in Sonoma County is not up to par with a large city and the distances between towns and the coast would take more time by bus. Yet this location is great for walking to downtown or a close by shopping centers. There are bicycle rentals in Santa Rosa and I do have an extra bike, that might fit you that you can use.
Other Things to Note
As for check in time, it's best for me to arrange with you around my work schedule, as I want to be present when you arrive. I appreciate your arrival time to be before 9 pm. Thanks!
No smoking indoors or outside on property.
Roseanna welcomed me to her serene, peaceful oasis more as a friend than a customer. The room was exactly as described, quiet and comfortable. The back yard garden featured hummingbirds and perennials, a perfect spot for a late afternoon glass of wine or quiet morning coffee. The house was spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. Annadel State Park is nearby, great place for a walk or jog in the woods around Spring Lake. Thanks Roseanna for a wonderful evening and a great night's sleep!
Roseanna's home was sparkling clean--beautiful hardwood floors, a lovely remodeled kitchen, water-saving nation garden out front. My room was indeed quiet and all my immediate needs considered. Roseanne was kind and helpful to me when I arrived, and she has such an interesting outlook and a wonderful disposition.
My husband and I stayed with Roseanna on our recent visit to Santa Rosa and could not have been more pleased. Roseanna is extremely warm and welcoming. She was full of wonderful suggestions for things to do and places to eat - so many we will have to come back again as we could not fit it all in during this trip! In our room she left us a couple maps of the area and local parks and a document with information about the house and the surrounding area. Her home is lovely and feels very open and homey at the same time, with a beautiful garden out back. It is a quick drive to downtown Santa Rosa as well as to many parks and hiking trails. The bed was comfortable and right across from the private bathroom, which was very convenient. Roseanna herself was wonderful to talk to and made us feel very comfortable and welcome immediately. When we return to Santa Rosa we will definitely see if Roseanna is available to host us again and we highly recommend her to other visitors to the area.
This was a great stay. Roseanna is a warm and gracious host, her home is comfortable, very well taken care of and quiet. Perfect place for my working weekend, and I would definitely stay again.
About the Host, Roseanna
I love Sonoma County and feel much gratitude for living in a beautiful place with the ocean and mountains so close to explore. I love birding and have several feeders in my backyard. I play the piano, guitar, sing as well as have the quiet time of meditation and reading. I am primarily vegetarian...but primary is eating healthy so some chicken,fish and good wine!I have a small house with office attached and I rent out a small furnished bedroom and private bath.
