Antique-furnished cozy, nostalgic bedroom (double bed) in a charming old wine country farmhouse situated on 8 acres on Atascadero Creek. Enjoy a simple healthy breakfast, with good coffee or tea. Breakfast available until 10. Read a book (we have a pretty good library in the house) or sip a glass of afternoon wine and watch the birds down at the creek and the barn owls hunting over the lower field at sundown. Enjoy our lush blackberry bushes fruit trees, and our half acre hillside of French lavender in full bloom in summer (you're invited to take some home to enjoy). Search for arrowheads....the property was an important Coast Miwok gathering site. Walk to town or the Gravenstein Grill for a good meal or happy hour. Great food, music, hiking, entertainment, quirky little off-the-beaten-path towns, and the beach are just a short drive away. Be sure to see the relatively recent NYT travel article on Sebastopol. Come enjoy it while the area is relatively unspoiled.
We have a good supply of local area attraction brochures and maps for your use. We are also happy to provide you with suggestions, if you like, depending on your personal interests.
All proceeds are donated to local animal rescue groups or to the wonderful PAWS wild animal rescue sanctuary in the Gold Country.
We have 4 fine rescue dogs and 4 cats. Your small well-behaved, housebroken dog/cat may be considered. But please provide information, in advance, about your pet so we can assess the 'fit'. A small fee will apply.
Unfortunately, no children under 10 please, as my dogs aren't at their best with children.
Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns. Thanks for your interest in Pelo del Perro Farm.
No shoes in the house please (we're happy to lend you socks).
No smoking anywhere on the property.
Please be mindful of water consumption as we're in perpetual drought.
Please be very gentle with the plumbing....septic system is old and sensitive.
Please keep scents to a minimum and we will do the same.
Please make cellphone calls in your room or outside.
Kitchen is generally not available for guests to prepare meals.
Laundry available for additional charge.
I'm a semi-retired CPA/investment advisor, now enjoying a much simpler and quieter life on my little farm, which I bought three years ago for a complete makeover. I volunteer at the local Humane Society and do a lot of fundraising and advocacy work on behalf of animals. I'm a big reader, traveler, antique afficionado and less big but enthusiastic cook and gardener. Also love to hike, with or without the dogs. I have one grown daughter, an entomologist, so I try to tolerate, if not love, bugs.
When I travel, I love staying in quiet, old B+B's and am delighted to be able to provide an unusual and cozy place for others who appreciate old houses, antiques, nature, serenity...and animals.
