  • Cute cottage, great location, wonderful hosts


    Imagine a cute cottage, impeccably set up and outfitted, with a quiet, private back deck for relaxing or just watching the deer walk by. Patty & Rene couldn't have been kinder or more helpful. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would recommend it to anyone!

  • Wonderful cabin getaway


    My wife and I stayed at this wonderful little cabin for our anniversary. The cabin is nestled near the woods on private property and had everything we needed. It was spotless and decorated perfectly to make us feel comfortable during our stay. We have stayed at many vacation rentals over the years and this was the first time we had a personal tour upon our arrival, it was such a wonderful touch and made us feel very welcome. Patty and Rene are such gracious hosts, they were very friendly and even gave us some of the vegetables from their garden. The tomatoes were super tasty and the peppers were flavorful with a nice spicy kick to them. The guest book with suggestions for local places was very helpful. We had dinner at Tre Piazzi in Auburn one night and it was fabulous. While your there, try the Tin Lantern in Meadow Vista, they were amazing, but make sure to have a reservation. Thank you Rene and Patty for letting us stay at your cozy cabin and being wonderful hosts.

    From the owner: "Thank you, Frank & Paula, we loved having you both as guests and are so happy you enjoyed your visit."

  • Great getaway


    The cottage was so clean, well equipped and located in the woods but stores/mall/restaurants all within 30 minutes. We explored NorCal and found this to be a great home base to get good sleep and have a relaxing morning! The hosts were also very sweet and I was excited to say hi & small talk in passing. We plan to be back!

  • Perfectly appointed and spacious


    This was our second stay at the cabin and we will keep coming back if they’ll have us! The cabin is beautifully updated and the hosts have thought of every little detail, from the soft thick towels and high quality linens to the welcome basket and kitchen essentials. It feels like a remote woodsy location but is conveniently located near I-80. We really loved it there.
