Let this one-bedroom suite on our oak-shaded estate be your home base as you explore historic Petaluma and Sonoma wine country. Pets welcome!
Travel down our sun-dappled street, past elegant Victorian homes set back from white picket fences, and turn down a private drive to arrive at Suiteoaks, a 1 acre slice of resort living in the heart of historic Petaluma.
10% city occupancy tax
You’ll be greeted by fresh flowers and our customary welcome basket, filled with all the goodies you might need to make your stay perfectly relaxed: hot cocoa, tea and breakfast snacks, including a loaf of host Neal’s home-baked bread, made fresh daily.
You’ll wake up to birdsong each morning in a pillow-top queen bed outfitted with down pillows and duvet, with a view of the veranda from the bedroom. On your way to the fully equipped kitchenette for morning coffee, you’ll walk through the cheery living room lit by sunshine streaming in from the skylight overhead. The en-suite bath features luxurious towels, spa products and extra toothbrushes--just in case you forgot to pack one.
Once you’re unpacked, you’ll want to get acquainted with the grounds: one lovingly landscaped acre of land ringed with heritage oak trees. Take a walk through the organic vegetable garden, dip a toe in the seasonal swimming pool, or partake in a game of lawn-bowling, croquet or Bocce.
By evening, unwind on your private secluded terrace with a glass of Petaluma pinot or curl up by the electric fireplace with a cozy blanket and an after-dinner espresso. Or slip into a luxe bathrobe, pop some popcorn and settle in for a film from the On Demand TV.
Gateway to Wine Country
Northern California’s best pinots, cabs and zins are just a short 30-minute drive from your door along scenic country roads, while historic downtown Petaluma is a short six-block walk from the Suiteoaks estate. We’re only a couple miles from an 18-hole golf course, the Sonoma coast and the famous Valley of the Moon.
So close to town, so far from real life, Suiteoaks is your Petaluma home away from home. Wine country awaits!
We love pets.... [See rules though.]
Smoking is allowed in an allocated area with chairs. Far from front entrance, for non-smokers convenience.
Общение с гостями
As with any guest of ours, we love talking, helping find wonderful adventures to take for them in this fantastic area, be it a special restaurants, a nice place for a walk with birds-the best place to get a gift, or see the many fascist of life in the world of the stunning Sonoma wine country.
It is a great joy for Neal and I to help create a special visit for our guest.
For many, that may mean saying hi, and going shopping at the local farmers market and visiting with them agin on the ay the move on to their next exploration. Maybe having a class of wine and a quite conversation by the fire pit, undisturbed.
On the other hand, we always enjoy sharing a cup of coffee with all the great people that come to stay at Suiteoaks. Our guest lets us know, often without words their needs and space they want.
Maybe we have learned to understand how to create, we hope the perfect time,for our guest from all the years of being host-when we owned our B+B in San Francisco.
The best part for us? Is seeing all the smiles, helping to create a memorable time for them on their visit- in what ever way our guest needs
Другие важные подробности
Petaluma is the new heartbeat of Sonoma wine country. A great compromise between the country and urban life. Harper's Bazar recently listed the top #10 most coveted places to visit this Fall and #1 was Petaluma
Petaluma is an intoxicating concoction of old historic elegance, charm and deliriously fun restaurants and waterfront charm. 10-20 mins to all the glories of this region-wineries, redwoods, ocean beaches, oysters, golden hills glowing of sunlight wrapped with jewels of roads leading to a cutting-edge culinary scene, fabulous museums, wine making, California history, and boutiques to swoon over.
It is very quiet with abundance of nature and a short walk to town. There is an elementary school across the winter creek on the west side. The suite is on the east side.
There is a 10% occupancy tax imposed by Petaluma effective Jan 1, 2016.
We allow pets. There is a $50 pet cleaning fee in addition to the $50 standard cleaning fee. Pets can not be left if you leave the property. They miss you – we can't have them barking.
Respect the privacy of other guests and act in a mature manner. Enjoy and let other do the same.

celebration small, yes.

Hi, our names are Neal & Shray,
We love meeting all kinds of people, and learning about there journey in this world.
looking back at when we first owned a B&B, in S.F. which was called 'Ashbury Manor' we realized what it meant to us, learning and sharing are lives for so many moments of time, with others. how much it could effect our outlook on life in a positive way.
Airbnb has given us this gift again, by creating a format for us , that allows us to be host once again, to so many fantastic new people.
What a great time we had. Amazing that we still are in contact with several guest from almost 20 years ago!
And now? Suiteoaks' a country retreat in the center of downtown historic Petaluma.
Already for us it has been a joy… not even a year has passed, and the guest have been splendid. How very fortunate we have been and still are now to have such a gem of space on our earth ,to share.
Indeed 'Ashbury Manor ' was the 1st, a mansion in san francisco. beyond elegant and comfortable… at ease with itself, it crystal and carved 100 year old woods and stained glass. that gave us this special opportunity
the shinning moment for 'Ashbury manor' her guest and us, was when she made it onto the front page of the Wall Street Journal , as a featured articail about hosting guest in your own home…
this was long before airbnb. They went on to quote…'' that she had some of the best hosts in SF we couldn't believe it!!!!
What a fantastic time! 'Really', as Neal said, 'it was all about just getting to meet all kinds people, and helping them have fun! '
It was very fulfilling, and a real adventure for us.
Then Neal decided 'the country was for him! He wanted to grow organic veggies for restaurants. And Me? I needed a big place for my art !
We both knew how much we enjoyed the B&B / and
wanted to do something of that sort, upon retirement.
so now 2 years ago, when heard of Airbnb-- we knew we had found away forward with this wish. A wonderful way to continue our dream and adventure…
so …. after 2 years of searching we found and created 'SuiteOaks' in the wine country. She sits on an untouched marvel of a one acre estate form the late 40's.
SO PLEASE COME SEE HER, SHARE IN OUR BURGEONING DREAM AND ENJOY!
already we have met many fantastic people, who have enriched our days. achieving what was hoped, being in a place to recieve the gift of seeing, the best in of all of us!
