My ranch is in the country yet only 7 minutes to Petaluma. You’ll be able to enjoy 100 acres of outdoor space, clean air, views, and loads of farm animals including horses, cows, goats, llamas, and chickens. Perfect for hiking or biking but mainly relaxing. My rustic yet comfy Nest is good for couples, solo adventurers, and furry friends (pets).

Jani's place is a very special find. It is incredibly well appointed, and showcases Jani's taste and unique and beautiful style. The pictures are very accurate. The location cannot be beat; central to the Redwoods, the Coast, and the wineries in Napa and Sonoma. Jani is a wonderful host; accessible when you need her, but let's you have your space on her beautiful property. This is definitely a great place to stay. Thanks Jani! Lindsey

Jani's ranch is absolutely amazing! This was our 3rd trip and we love it more and more each time we visit! The Nest is super comfortable, beautifully decorated and a wonderful place to come home to after a day of exploring the area. Jani is so welcoming and makes you feel right at home. We truly thank her for her kindness and for opening up her wonderful ranch. We can't wait to return!

This place is magic. The Nest is a beautiful little cozy space loaded with comfy furniture, great little amenities, and everything a couple needs to have a nice stay. The property is incredible. All of the animals walking around are amazing and friendly. My wife and I had a blast just walking around the property feeding the goats, horses, cows, rabbits, chickens and even a Zebra. Yes... a freaking Zebra. The whole area cools off wonderfully in the evening and The Nest gets nice and cool at night, making for a very comfortable night's sleep. The host Jani is absolutely wonderful. I only wish my wife and I had more time on the property itself to get to know Jani and hang around the animals more. We were in town for a special event this time, but we plan on returning with the intention of staying at The Nest, feeding the animals, and just barbecuing under the stars at this awesome property.

Jani's ranch is absolutely gorgeous, and my boyfriend and I had a wonderful stay. We enjoyed being out of the bustle of town, and also meeting her menagerie of animals -- goats (and baby goats!), ducks, chickens & roosters, a zebra, horses, llamas, cows -- and feeding some of them carrots and apples. If you love animals, it's really a nice bonus experience. It's a working ranch, but The Nest itself feels luxurious. The cabin is beautifully decorated and well-appointed with plenty of attention to detail, including a comfortable bed and everything you'd need for your stay. After comparing dozens of AirBnBs in Sonoma County, Jani's place really looked the most special and comfortable, and it did not disappoint. There are eggs in the barn for the taking, water, coffee, and a fridge stocked with some essentials. Jani was warm and welcoming and let us explore the ranch on our own, but was available for questions and if we needed anything. Would love to stay again! Thanks, Jani!

Absolutely wonderful trip. It's rustic but 9 minutes from target and Trader Joe's basically stay here if you love animals and don't mind getting a little dirty, but want to come back to a peaceful country retreat. Definitely will be coming back!

A truly unique and magical place. Jani was an extraordinary host and went out of her way to make sure my stay was extra special. She was so welcoming and helpful and engaging. She went above and beyond to make sure that I had a good week and amazing birthday. Sipping coffee each morning outside on the porch while the goats roamed and waking up to the roosters each morning was an amazing experience. If you're looking for a place to relax, good for work (if needed), close to downtown but remote enough to feel like a true getaway this is your place. You wont be disappointed. :)

To say we love Jani's ranch is an understatement! It is magical and my very favorite place to visit! We have stayed in the Renovated Barn and the Nest and love both of them equally. Spending time with the animals is amazing and we really enjoy just sitting outside and watching the animals interact with one another and listening to all the wonderful sounds of being on a ranch. It is active, yet so relaxing and peaceful at the same time! We cannot wait to go back again! Thank you Jani for all your kindness!
