Gold Run house description

Enter a peaceful sanctuary in a quiet mountain setting. Wind down a beautiful paved road, through tall pines and majestic oaks to a beautiful family compound at the end of the road only 5 min. off I - 80. No highway or train noise.

Tahoe style interior with plenty of warmth and comfort for your whole family or just you and your sweetheart. Relax in one of the hammocks or in the new SPA on the large deck after a hike on one of the trails near the house or a day of skiing at one of the nearby ski resorts. Play ping pong, put together jigsaw puzzles, play any of the many board games or video games, play cards, enjoy the large library, watch an old movie, shoot some hoops, toss the football, play badminton, horseshoes, tetherball, croquet or just relax in this beautiful comfortable setting.

Hike to sunrise cliff, the American River, an old miner's cabin, a very cool tunnel, to numerous ponds, a waterfall, and/or a mountain lake where you can swim or just relax in one of the hammocks in the solitude of the forest.

SPA on the deck under the stars for your relaxation and enjoyment. There is also a large jacuzzi bath tub in the bathroom for soaking and a new outdoor shower to enjoy after a fun day of hiking or skiing.

Bring your clothes, some food and you'll find the rest here for your use and enjoyment.

Unique setting for family reunions, retreats or small weddings. Contact owner with questions.

Keywords: House, 5 Acres in woods, pond, great for Retreats, Small Weddings, Family Reunions or just a quiet get-away away from the noise of the city and your busy life.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: This picture is of me and my dog, Amy, as we were resting on the large rock outcropping that overlooks the American River canyon on our way down the Pickering Bar trail.

                  Why the Owner Chose Gold Run:
                  We bought this as our family compound, but as lives change, so did ours. Using this home as a vacation rental has helped me to finance my son's college education. I have also been able to donate weekly reservations to the numerous good causes, including the Down's Buddy Walk and numerous fund raisers for the families of Cancer patients. I move in myself when we have company from out of town and pretend that I am 'on vacation' too! It's great!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  I love hiking down into the 'diggings', exploring the old gold mining areas, swimming in the mountain lakes, sitting in the spa under the stars and just enjoying the quiet solitude of this gorgeous and peaceful setting.
