Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Enjoy the perched feeling of Sonoma Mountain's setting with sweeping views and nature. The slightly tamed wilderness with an olive orchard and gardens sets the tone as you chill on the redwood deck. This is a studio cottage with expansive views to the western valley and Marin. Mount Tam appears through the windows from your super comfy bed. This is a beautiful and unique space adjacent to a mellow artist's studio. NOTE: Well behaved and Pre-Approved dogs available for a nightly fee.

The space
We are on 10 fenced and secluded acres. Our home is 150 feet away from the cottage on the property. There is a functioning art studio next door adjacent to the Artis't Retreat. There are several trails for hiking on and off the property. We have a lovely garden and several lookout spots for reading and relaxing. The well water is delicious. We have dogs on the property and you must be an animal lover -100%. Also, we have lots of wild critters everywhere.

Where you’ll be

Penngrove, California, United States

Very rural, gorgeous views and walks abound. Very quiet with a few neighbors with large parcels, farms, and ranches. Fairfield Osborne Preserve is at the top of our road. Crane Creek Regional Park is at the bottom of our mountain.

This is a wilderness area and you might see animals like deer, bobcats, mountain lions (very rare) and rattlesnakes. There are lizards and spiders and frogs so you get a full experience.

We are in a high fire danger zone and smoking is prohibited. If you have to smoke, I can show you a safe designated area.

This is an awesome gate to wine country and the coastal regions. Please check out the guide books for some excellent recommendations.

Textile artist and mother of two living in beautiful Sonoma County. We enjoy an only slightly tamed wilderness with dogs, an olive orchard and native plants. We have 10 acres of trails and nature areas looking to the horizon of the Pacific Ocean. I am a native Californian and am happy to live in such a peaceful place.
