About the owner: I am a writer and the CEO of ProvidersWeb, an international caregiver's organization see www.providersweb.com. Over the years I raised many kids in this house. It's always been a house full of fun, love and joy. It's my desire to share this wonderful place with families and groups that want to spend time with one another and have fun. ~ Diane
Why the Owner Chose Angels Camp: This is a very fun place to stay, please read our excellent reviews.
The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse: Over Easter we had a family get-together and had a lot of people spend the night. It was so much fun, we had a sing-a-long around the camp fire BBQ pit in the backyard, and the next morning a wonderful Easter breakfast for 40 people and egg hunt. Since Jan 2010 we have had 4 birthday parties and 6 other parties for my family and friends at the house - it was pure joy. It's great when you can all stay together and cook meals and have fun.
