The SpaceWe have two bedrooms and you may reserve one or both if traveling with others. My daughter named the two lovely rooms Sunflower Room and Paddle Room…
Sunflower Room: Named after a painting of sunflowers adorning the wall, this room has two very comfortable twin beds (which may be pushed together to create a queen bed), soft pillows, duvet comforters, a nightstand full of books, small antique chair, dresser, and mirror in the closet for your belongings. His and Hers white bathrobes, towels and slippers await you.
Paddle Room: (Listed separately) Taking its name from paddle wall decorations, this room has a very comfortable memory foam queen size bed along with soft pillows, duvet comforter, two nightstands, a small armchair that converts to an ottoman, a dresser with mirror and closet for your belongings, and a shelf full of books. His and Hers white bathrobes, towels and slippers await you.
Main Guest Bathroom: A separate shared bathroom is facing both bedrooms across the hallway and has His and Hers vanity space, a wall-to-wall mirror, magnifying vanity mirror, hair dryer and a privacy door leading to the toilet and bathtub.
Second Guest Bathroom: For guests occupying both bedrooms who are not related and/or do not wish to share the Main Guest Bathroom, we have another guest bathroom by the entrance hall, which has a vanity with a large mirror, toilet and a shower.
This is your home away from home. It is spacious, with a formal living and dining room. A family room with a TV and fireplace opens to a large kitchen with a view to our backyard. A picturesque floral garden surrounds an outdoor dining area with BBQ. Enjoy your morning coffee, breakfast or a glass of wine and dinner in our backyard. Relax as you watch the hummingbirds and blue jays come in for a drink in the water fountain or the blue-belly lizard family scamper about.
Sonoma County is beautiful year-round. Our house is located at the outskirts of Santa Rosa in a quiet neighborhood with easy access to country back roads and Hwy 101. You can enjoy the typical California weather: sunny warm days June-October, sunny mild days April-May, and mild to cool days November-March, with crisp, cool evenings in all seasons.
Guest AccessUpon check-in our guests will have access to our formal living, dining and family rooms with TV and fireplace, as well as the backyard and garden. The kitchen is available to guests including the microwave oven, coffee/tea makers, cups and glasses. A breakfast with eggs, toast, cereal, coffee and tea is included. Interaction with GuestsPlease don’t think of this as a hotel or your usual B&B. We hope you feel as though you are staying at your best friend’s house … laid back and enjoyable.
Our interaction with guests is based on their wishes to be private or social. We will happily enjoy a cup of coffee or a glass of wine when we are invited to join you, or we will also respectfully leave you to enjoy your own vacation. We want you to experience an unforgettable home away from home experience with us. Just let us know your preference and we will honor your wish.
We also have signature wine country experiences that you may wish to reserve for an added fee. Would you like to enjoy a healthy Mediterranean home-cooked dinner? Please inquire for sample dinner menus, and don’t forget to mention if you have food allergies. Would you be interested in a casual cooking class and enjoy your meal for dinner? How about an in-home private wine education for parties of 4-6 people? Please inquire about availability and fees when making reservations.
