Retreat to a beautiful, secluded Gold Country getaway with views of the High Sierra Mountains and the American River. Relax in the sun by our large swimming pond! The perfect place for small corporate or group retreats, or your next family vacation!
OUR PROPERTY is uniquely located on a ridge with expansive views of the American river and the majestic sierra mountains. The house is peacefully secluded and, though you would never know it, is completely off grid. It is powered by solar panels, with a backup generator. We are located 10 minutes from I-80 on a 3 mile long dirt road. Right in between Sacramento and Lake Tahoe
THE HOUSE has two private bedrooms, one with a queen bed, one with a full bed. The large upstairs loft includes one queen and one full bed along with a fold out couch bed. The house can comfortably sleep ten on beds with the possibility of 2-4 more on couches and roll away beds. There are three full bathrooms, two downstairs and one upstairs.
THE GOURMET KITCHEN is fully equipped with everything you will need including a large 6 burner gas range with griddle and oven, large refrigerator, microwave, and outdoor gas and weber BBQs.
THE DINING ROOM seats 6-10 people with deck access to accommodate even more.
IN THE SUMMER time, dive into our large swimming pond with water trampoline, and take a walk through our large garden with varieties of fruits and vegetables for your culinary enjoyment.
There are also public access lakes and rivers located nearby.
IN THE WINTER, gather around the central wood stove with a cup of your favorite tea, and take in the views of beautiful snow capped mountains. The dry sauna is also a plus on a cold winter day.
We are approximately 45 minutes from the nearest ski resort.
-Be aware that although we rarely get much snow, it is always a possibility and four wheel drive or chains would be required.
