My husband Dave and I loved staying with Sheri and Maurice. They were very friendly and welcoming. The room was beautiful, bed very comfy, bathroom great, and everything was spotless clean (very important to me). They served us a breakfast each morning (yogurt/fruit/granola along with toast/croissant with homemade jam) which was a great start to our day of sightseeing. I look forward to staying with Sheri and Maurice again; they have a beautiful home in a very quiet neighborhood and we had lots of fun visiting with them during our stay.
My boyfriend and I stayed with Sheri and Maurice for two nights whilst we visited the wine country around Sonoma and Napa. We booked the room late the night before we wanted to arrive as it was a last minute decision to go during our time travelling through California and they responded promptly and everything was really straightforward. The house is really lovely well furnished, clean and tidy. The room was also lovely and we had a bathroom to ourselves. Sheri and Maurice were really welcoming and also made us a lovely breakfast of yogurt and fruit and eggs which was a nice surprise. A lovely family home in a pretty and relaxing neighbourhood.
Exceeded my expectations. Home is spacious and well designed in a retreat-like setting. Sheri and Maurice are great hosts and even provided coffee and toast the next morning.
Sheri and Maurice were delightful and outstanding hosts, plus they made the most awesome fruit with toast and coffee breakfasts. Score!
Sheri and Maurice were wonderful and very sweet hosts. They made us feel very welcome, and also allowed us a lot of privacy. The room was super comfortable and everything was perfectly clean. Breakfast in the morning was also a lovely treat! We felt spoiled. We would recommend this place to any friends traveling through the area.
My boyfriend and I had a wonderful stay at Hilltop Wine Country Inn. Sheri and Maurice were extremely welcoming - from showing us around the house when we arrived, to providing local recommendations for places to visit, to preparing a delicious light breakfast for us the next morning. Their house is very lovely and looks exactly as it does in the photos. We are very glad we stayed here and look forward to returning when we are in town next.

About the Host, Sheri & Maurice
We are a married couple and have lived here in Petaluma for almost 40 years. Our home is furnished with many antiques because of our interests and business. We have hosted exchange students from Spain and France (for up to a school year) and have traveled to Europe several times and hope to go again to see different countries.
We love the many dining choices here in town all focusing on fresh local food as well as a number of microbreweries. We enjoy walks in a number of parks here with walking trails, marshes and water fowl. Downtown is less than a fifteen minute walk with many antique shops, restaurants, movie theater and coffee (website hidden) tie up in downtown at the "turning basin" on the Petaluma River providing a great view from many local restaurants.
