Angels Camp cottage description

The River House is a charming, hundred year old cottage nestled on the banks of Angels Creek. It has been lovingly renovated and tastefully decorated. With two bedrooms and a bathroom it's the perfect getaway for a couple or a small family. The cabin can handle two couples, but it starts to get a bit tight with only one bathroom.

The River House is located in the quaint, historic town of Angels Camp in the heart of California's Gold Country. Yosemite, San Francisco, Tahoe, and the Bear Valley Ski Resort are an easy, scenic drive away (1-2 hours). Our guests appreciate being able to explore Northern California's big ticket attractions and then returning 'home' to the quiet and tranquility of The River House.

The River House has two bedrooms, a bathroom, a living room, kitchen, & dining area. Each bedroom has a queen size bed with cozy bedding and plush pillows. Both bedrooms have tranquil river views. The newly renovated bathroom has a shower and a separate 'soaking' room with a claw foot tub overlooking the river. The updated kitchen is fully equipped including a full size fridge, coffee maker, microwave, & blender. The charming living room has comfortable furniture and a propane stove for cozy winter evenings. There is air conditioning for the warmer summer months. The multi-tiered back deck, overlooking the river, has a 5 person jacuzzi hot tub, comfortable patio furniture and a propane BBQ. There is also a hammock strung up in the shade of the oaks and pines, perfect for whiling away the afternoon and enjoying the restful sounds of Angels Creek.

After relaxing and unwinding at the River House we certainly hope that you'll venture out to enjoy some of the year round activities and adventures that Calaveras County has to offer. In the summer, don't miss hiking or biking amongst the Giant Sequoias at the Calaveras Big Trees State Park. How about tubing and wake boarding on New Melones Lake? Or catching a summer concert while sipping local wines at the Ironstone Vineyard in nearby Murphys? In the winter, be sure to head up the hill to do some skiing or snow boarding at Bear Valley Mountain. And if you visit us in the spring you must plan to partake in the festivities of the world famous Jumping Frog Jubilee right in downtown Angels Camp.

Small print:
*There is no cable or internet unless you use the cellular signal. And we require no smoking inside our house.
*There is Poison Oak and thorny blackberry bushes in this area. All guests are asked to be diligent on this matter. The easiest solution is to not rub against any bushes when out walking.
*The hot tub: Such things can be tempermental, or can have mechanical issues. IF the hot-tub ever fails a guest, then there is a preset discount of $10 per day that I will return to you to offset this problem.
*In June of 2013, there was a report of a rattlesnake near the back deck. This old cabin is more in the wild then other stuff you will find online (even though you are so close to Angels Camp). If you want to rent in a subdivision or a hotel, where there is no chance of rattlesnakes or adventure, then this is not for you.
*If you or your kids collect the crawdads (which is kind of fun to do), then please return them safely to the river after playing with them.

Whenever you visit you will enjoy the charming, no fuss hospitality of Angels Camp and The River House. We hope to see you soon!

The Stewarts,
Steve & Stephanie
Gaige, Haviland, & Ellery

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: We're the Stewarts. Steve and Stephanie. And our three kids Gaige, Haviland, & Ellery. We live the American dream. You know - driving kids all over to various activities, conferencing with teachers, laundry, helping teenagers study for driving exams, teaching first graders to read, more laundry, trips to WalMart for sandwich meat and toilet paper, and, of course, working long hours to pay for it all. Occasionally, we stumble upon a weekend with no traveling soccer games and we hit the high road to The River House for a weekend of pure relaxation.

                  Why the Owner Chose Angels Camp:
                  We purchased the River House in 2012. We absolutely loved the location on the river and the historic character and charm of the cottage. We knew that it would take some TLC to renovate it, but we were excited to bring it back to its former glory. So we set about cleaning, painting, plumbing, sanding, tiling and spit shining. And now a year later, shiny it is. Some day we hope to retire and bring our grandkids here. But until then, we're offering it for rent so that you might enjoy it in our stead.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  The very best thing about the River House is the tranquil, relaxing setting. The gurgling creek, whispering trees, and singing birds encourage us to relax in spite of our dizzying, fast paced 'real' life.
