"We are a retired couple from SF Bay Area who travel with our dog. We stayed 4 absolutely wonderful nights at A Mountain Rose. The reason for our trip was to join up with our Hiking Club who were all staying at the Best Western (much to their regret once they saw A Mountain Rose!) This lovely home is everything and more than the photos show. We have rented many vacation homes in 3 states and A Mountain Rose goes to the top of our favorites list now!
Here are some of the reasons: spotlessly clean (!), really fully-equipped kitchen, laundry room, luxurious bed linens & comfy beds, couch, chairs to sink into & relax, wifi, hot shower, HUGE fenced backyard (our dog loved it!), great patio seating front and back (we seated 30 hikers before the hike!), 2 BBQs, fire pit, ping pong in the garage, games in the house, more pine trees than you can count & wonderful pine scent & peace & quiet! And, that's the short list!
As for Catherine, what can we say? She is an absolute delight - so thoughtful, caring and wanting you to enjoy this very special place. She & her husband live in the Bay Area but check in with you & make sure you have everything you need.
And then there's the stunningly beautiful area of Pollock Pines. A highlight for us was hiking to the gorgeous waterfall at Jenkinson Lake. If you're there in the Spring when the water is released, don't miss it! And, if you also enjoy a wine-good-time, this area is for you! Oh, and be sure to visit (dogs welcome) Placerville Hardware on Main Street in Placerville, the oldest (1852) hardware store west of the Mississippi. You could spend a day in there & not see it all!
In closing, THANK YOU, Catherine for such a memorable time! There is still gold in the gold country. You proved it to us! A Mountain Rose is truly a GEM! We will return!
Trish & Mike, San Jose, CA"
