The Ginger cottage is very cozy. If you're a fan of art, you will LOVE it! Ginger and Dave couldn't be nicer. They really go out of there way to please. The yard is perfect for a dog or two. They give you privacy when you want it but are always available if you need anything. Very quiet.

Wonderful area that was quiet and private but close to great restaurants and activities for day and night (close enough to walk). Lovely place to stay and the hosts went above and beyond to make our trip great. Such a lovely place to stay and excellent hosts. Thanks!

Response from Ginger:
Thank you so much Jordan for staying with us again. I cant believe as a party of four you left the cottage in perfect shape. Four people sharing a space can be much more tidying up afterwards for me. You get the award for being the neatest guests ever and I so appreciated it. So glad your Dad and Peter had the Poster world n common. Thanks against n. Ginger

The Ginger House was very cute, full of art and knick knacks. In fact every wall and most surfaces including window sills have something on them. It was a bit like waking up every morning in an art gallery or antique store. If that doesn't bother you then this is the place for you. Ginger herself was wonderful. She provided us with goodies I've never received in all the years we've been renting - delicious muffins from a bakery, wine, melon and lots more was found in the well stocked kitchen. She was very communicative and we had a nice chat when we arrived. The beds were very comfortable and the place was pretty quiet. The place itself is basically two large rooms with a kitchen and bathroom in the middle. The large rooms have a bed in the back and sitting areas in the front. The only real complaint was the double bed could use a brighter lamp on the night stand in order to read in bed.

Such a fantastic gem we found! Ginger & Peter were great hosts and their cottage is off the charts. Such generous and warm people. Beautifully decorated with amazing pieces they've picked up during their travels. Quiet and so relaxing. Easy walk to downtown. Thank you for the delicious muffins and wine! We had a blast!

We traveled to Petaluma for my granddaughters Spring Break. It's location to SF, the beach, and the Napa region was a perfect match for our family's needs. We received excellent communication prior to our visit. Our time at Ginger's house was exactly what we were hoping for! We were greeted warmly with all the little extra touches! Gingers house provided us the ability to ride our bikes to town and gave our small, special needs dog, a safe/secure place to spend time. We really couldn't have found a better option. We are thankful and grateful!!!

I am a very friendly and positive and I know I will be a very good host for whoever stays here. My husband and I live in the front house with a very nice yard in between us and the cottage. We have 4 wonderful adult children and 3 grandchildren who all live in Petaluma. I love my home and keep it looking beautiful all of the time.
My husband Peter and I enjoy going out and to hear music and travel just about anywhere. We're both very good cooks and are into creating a plentiful vegetable garden year around. We also have a rental property in Mexico which gives me a great opportunity to speak Spanish.
I really enjoy having guests as I'm very proud of the cottage and know everyone will enjoy staying at The Ginger House In Petaluma.
