  • Great place, convienient to all... has more ameinites than some hotels!

    "This was my 1st experience with a VRBO rental, so I didn't know what to expect. Went on a fishing trip with 4 other guys. I heard no complaints from anybody regarding the location, the condition of the condo, nor the beds. Modern appliances. Cable tv and wi-fi was outstanding, as we were able to chill there and watch the college/NFL games there at night (and check our fantasy football teams). We drove a Chevy Surburban and it fit nicely into the alotted GARAGE parking space. We didnt take advantage of the pool/spa area (so I can't comment on it), the PS1 game system nor the tons of movies that were available in the unit. Note: the living room pic is a bit outdated... the unit now has a modern flat screen LCD tv, so if you feel like you need to bring your Roku or Chromecast, go for it. The complex was quiet, clean, and there is some street parking if you take multiple cars. the ONLY downsides were that the water heater is not full sized, so we had to space out our showers, and the downstairs showerhead is really low, like 5 feet off the ground, so if you are a giant, use the upstairs shower. I Would definitely recommend and stay there again. There are a bit of stairs you have to climb, so take that into consideration if you are physically challenged. BONUS: someone left tapatio in the fridge and we used it."

  • Would definitely stay here again

    "Came up here for Memorial Day weekend with 2 friends and was amazed at how perfect out condo was when we walked in the door. It was so fresh, clean, and spacious. It was also extremely comfortable. The heated floors and fireplace were toasty and we loved cuddling on the couch with the flat screen tv and watching one of the great selections of DVDs to choose from in the drawers. Showers and bathroom had great pressure and were extremely clean- green tea shampoo and soap was provided. The location is only a mile from the village so we enjoyed walking there on the trail that is just a minute from the condo. Pool, jacuzzi and rec room are also accross the way. So happy we stayed here- it was perfect! We would definitely stay here again."

  • We had a lovely stay

    "We really enjoyed our stay here during Augusy 2014. We had just spend a week in hotels, so it was so nice to have the extra space this house gave us! There were 5 adults, and plenty of space for us all! We didn't even need to use the basement! Jennifer was fantastic to deal with, she would always answer our questions quickly, and was very easy to contact! The whole process was very smooth. We enjoyed waking up to see the deer in the morning outside the window, and it was lovely to sit outside in the evening. Pine Mountain lake is beautiful and we enjoyed an afternoon Kayak on the lake and having a swim, all very peaceful. We stayed for 3 nights and wish we stayed for longer. We went into Yosemite a few times, it's a very easy drive and we ate at a couple of the pizza restaurants in Groveland - these were very yummy! All in all i'd recommend this property to anyone, and if we are ever lucky enough to return to this area I would stay again :)"

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.
