Our stay here was fantastic! Such a wonderful, peaceful getaway. The pictures don’t do the place justice. It’s a magical little retreat and Bill and his wife were so lovely and very accommodating. I’ll definitely be back.

My partner and I enjoyed our weekend at Bill's. The hot tub was so relaxing and we slept so well each night. The proximity to downtown was very convenient.

This is a unique stay in an Indonesian teakwood single room structure surrounded by farmland with cows grazing nearby and mourning doves calling in the morning. The bed was cozy with linen sheets and electric bed warmer. The bathroom is across the private deck and includes a shower, sink and bath tub. The private deck include a hot tub which was welcome after a day of driving. Yummy coffee was delivered in the morning - much appreciated as we continued our trip. Friendly hosts.

This will be one of the most unique and memorable stays you’ll ever have, highly recommend! Bill is a wonderful host, and his property is full of lovely, personal touches. The cottage, deck, and dayroom were perfect for a peaceful and secluded stay and the property is unforgettable.

Our second stay with Bill. Always a peaceful and beautiful place. Addition of a hot tub is a nice touch, but no trouble staying warm on cool nights thanks to the heated blanket. Really, a step above glamping, and Petaluma is always charming.

Cozy studio and very well appointed. Hot tub is amazing! Hosts were helpful but also very respectful of our privacy. Coffee on the deck in the morning was a really nice touch.

I had a lovely time staying at the Swallowtail Historic Art Studios! Great host, lovely location and so much to look at. The space is a bit like a small art museum, full to the brim with charming details and craftsmanship. The bed is extremely comfortable and the hot tub is a delight.

Very nice quick getaway from San Francisco. Feels like you’re out in the country but very close to town. Bill was a great host and showed us around the property when we got there. He offers coffee and tea if you’d like it. Hot tub under the stars was dreamy and looking at the tree houses on his property was unreal! Lots of cute cows in the area and very close to the coast should you want to head towards point Reyes etc. Very clean and very charming.

We had Swallowtail booked for a weekend in 2020 that turned out to be the first weekend of official Covid lockdown. We were able to book the same weekend for 2021 and finally got to stay. We didn’t have to go far from home to find a unique and exceptional spot that is exactly what Hipcamp is all about.

First off, Bill was a great, gracious host. The tour was wonderful and the privacy afforded was perfect. We had coffee brought every morning as an added bonus.

The space is perfect and exactly as described. Small, rustic teak cabin with all the charm you can throw at it. The hot tub opened to the field and was perfect for 2. The bathroom/parlor was filled with art and trinkets and more than you could take in over 2 days. And the art around. The stained glass was some of the most perfect stained glass. The heart of lights in the field... the lit stained glass hobbit hole... my descriptions won’t do it all justice so I won’t try.
