Antique Indonesian teakwood cottage, private deck with hot tub and very special, large, artistic bathroom/sitting room, private for cottage guests only.. Beautifully rural, yet just 6 minutes from historic downtown Petaluma and fine restaurants and shops. A short trip to the Pacific coast and the fabulous Pt. Reyes National Seashore, Tomales and Bodega Bays and towns, excellent vineyards and breweries, and San Francisco! WE FOLLOW THE CLEANING AND DISINFECTING GUIDELINES ISSUED BY AIRBNB. The space The antique Indonesian cottage is made of beautifully hand carved and hand colored teak wood, and is quiet, cozy and romantic with lovely views. It abuts a large private deck and hot tub. Just a few steps across the deck is the very large, luxurious, art filled, centrally heated private bathroom and sitting area. The cottage itself is unheated although there is a premium electric mattress pad with separate controls on the California King bed. That and the hot tub make for cozy sleeping on chilly winter nights Guest access Aside from the private deck, hot tub and bathroom/sitting room (with 6' tub and shower), guests can access 2.5 peaceful acres, woods and fields and Helen Putnam Regional Park one mile down the road for spectacular hiking. Other things to note In the 1970's this property was Swallowtail Studios, a famous glass blowers cooperative. The Grateful Dead played in the barn and hung out here...their manager lived just down the road. The barn is redwood, quite large and beautiful, with stained glass windows."Antique Indonesian teakwood cottage, private deck with hot tub and very special, large, artistic bathroom/sitting room, private for cottage guests only..

We had a wonderful one night stay at the studio. The hot tub and dreamy tub are great options for anyone looking to relax and stay warm while taking in some nature.

The property was very much as advertised in the listing. It was an easy overnight trip from the Bay Area :) We very much enjoyed having coffee and bread on the deck in the morning

A Petaluma Dream!
Michelle and Bill were beyond wonderful — their spot was a total dream, and a great launching-off point for various adventures in the area. We will absolutely be back. Thanks for everything!

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Swallowtail Historic Art Studios for NYE. It was quite peaceful, but it got busy at times with cars whizzing by. The location is very convenient, close to town but you're surrounded by lush rolling green hills and the beautiful Helen Putnam park. We mostly hung out in the warm and inviting bathroom/sitting room, with its unique touches. Like someone mentioned, the Antique Indonesian teakwood cottage, is a single room structure. It's unique but a bit too cold and dark with its limited lighting, for our taste. But once you're in bed, you'll be nice and toasty. We were welcomed with hot coffee and delicious bread new year's morning-what a way to welcome the new year!

Bill was a great host. He welcomed and oriented us to the property. The cabin is very beautiful and was great for listening to the rain. Highly recommend for a quick trip from the Bay. Thank you for hosting us!
