  • Great rental for families!

    "We had a wonderful stay in the condo - really comfortable beds and lovely linens. The sofa and chair in the common room were great for lounging. The interior overall was up to date and the kitchen had just about everything we needed. I loved the spa tub in one of the master bedrooms and the spa on the balcony was great to take in the beautiful, starry nights. The condo is close to everything, so that was a bonus + the two car parking garage makes everything very convenient. We were 4 adults and 2 kids in total (two separate families with plenty of space to spread out) - everyone had a blast. Highly recommend staying here. Oh, and seamless communications with the owner/manager."

  • Peace and Relaxation - What a Way To Spend Thanksgiving

    "We couldn’t have asked for a more inviting place to stay. The house relieved us of any stressors we’d brought with us as soon as we walked in. It was a perfect place to read, watch a mystery or two, complete a few crossword puzzles, and catch up on sleep. Everything we needed was there, and the owner was very accommodating before, during and after our stay."

  • Welcoming, cosy, nicely appointed

    "The owner gave a detailed, very helpful set of instructions, which made arrival easy and comfortable. The property was accurately described and depicted in the photos and we were not disappointed: located very conveniently in a spot that was a peaceful but fun snowy setting, clean, well-kept, and had everything we needed for a great weekend for kids and grown-ups. The kids loved stepping right outside and playing in the snow, we walked 5 minutes to sledding, and were a 10min drive to the Bear Valley ski resort, which everyone really enjoyed. We had our cars, but once at the property, one could get around to skiing, sledding, walking trails, convenience store without one. The area is beautiful, even the drive up Highway 4 -- rolling hills, farm land. Thanks so much for making our weekend a memorable, comfortable and enjoyable one!"

Gold Run Travel Tips

Gold Run Vacation Rentals Put You Close to California History

Gold Run was a former settlement in Placer County, California, in the Sacramento area. The community was named for a local stream where gold panning or "placer mining" was the rage. The discovery of gold in 1848 brought miners from all over the world, and Placer County was formed only three years later. The name came from the Spanish word for sand or gravel deposits containing gold; miners washed away the gravel, leaving the heavier gold, in a process known as "placer mining." Gold Run became famous for its highly efficient hydraulic mines. Between 1865 and 1878, Gold Run's mines shipped over $6,000,000 in gold. Unfortunately, for the miners, hydraulic mining was outlawed in 1882, putting an end to Gold Run's prosperity. Fortunately, for the area, the ban helped preserve its natural beauty.

Gold Run and the Surrounding Areas are a Beautiful Place to Vacation

Today, the former settlement of Gold Run is listed as a California Historical Landmark. Placer County is located in both the Sacramento Valley and Sierra Nevada areas of California, in what is known as the Gold Country. It stretches from the edge of Sacramento to Lake Tahoe and the Nevada border. There is hiking and beautiful trails with the area's natural flora and fauna to be admired. There are Gold Country High Sierra cabins to vacation in and enjoy the history of this once thriving settlement.

Gold Run Vacation Rentals are Also Close to the City

Gold Run lodging is plentiful and vacation rentals are also close to popular vacation areas like Monte Vista or Dutch Flat. Even Sacramento, with its Big City restaurants, entertainment venues and night life is only 50 minutes away. Whether you travel with a group large or small, you can find Gold Run vacation rentals with the space and the amenities you desire.
