It's an easy drive into Petaluma and the Cobin is conveniently nestled on the outskirts of town. Close to Laugunitas (15min drive) and a skip to town (20min walk 5mindrive).
The Cobin is fenced in on the property (charlie, my dog, loved being able to walk around) with an eco lavatory (shower & sink), a kitchenette (propane stove, refrigerator, sink & even a kettle) and quaint table and chairs under a ripe plum tree (w/small garden lights in twined throughout the branches) - it's a glamping b&b.
I would recommend the Hobbit Cobin for those exploring Petaluma...it truly is a unique experience.
Rod is a welcoming camp host and Zuke is an awesome camp dog... grateful for him sharing his property. The camp sites are spacious and the view is tranquil.
The drive up is an easy one and with quick access beautiful swimming holes and hikes.
We are already planing our next trip.
"The only thing to do with good advice is pass it on. It is never any use to oneself." - Oscar Wilde
I suppose it's best to start from the beginning....the path which travel occurs, weaves through lakes, forgotten townships and an abundance of beauty. "4WD recommended" however, we made it (alive) with a Fiat500, up and down the unpaved road to the quiet sanctuary of Sasquatch Meadows.
Upon arrival, the camp was well maintained; cut grass, practically new picnic table (w/other folding tables - possibly left behind from other adventurers) and the "perk" of a new-ish lavatory (flushing toilet w/a washing basin outside).
The campsite poured into the meadow with paths spilling into your private brook.
I wish I had the words to describe the blankets of stars that surrounded the meadow at night and the calm of silence however, you'll just have to experience it for yourselves.
Things you'll use;
- A sense of adventure with the confidence of driving off-road (in a fiat people!).
- Sun screen & Bug spray.
- Waterproof shoes & floaties; the river is heavenly and spills into a mirid of swimming holes however, the rocks are slippery and the floaties just bring-on-the-fun.
I would recommend at least two days for this venture, there is just too much to enjoy.
