Overview

About the property

This beautiful home is the perfect place to get away. It's great for couples, families, and retreats. Two master bedroom suites make it ideal for multiple families. Once here, you are only a short drive from Lake Tahoe, wine country, gold country, El Dorado National forest, ski resorts, South Fork American River, North Fork Consumnes River, and Jenkinson Lake! It is an hour from the Sacramento Airport, and five minutes away from Highway 50, grocery stores, pharmacy, Starbucks, and dining.

THE SPACE

Located on a beautiful forested green belt, this home is conveniently located only 5 minutes from US 50. This is very helpful during the snowy weather because it is on one of the first streets to be plowed, making access easier. Ample parking and level entry makes accessing the home incredibly easy for older and younger guests. While there are homes to each side, the view from most rooms is a verdant forest with abundant wildlife.

Wicker Moose Manor is a spacious 3,600 square feet, so there's plenty of room for multiple families. The house has two living rooms each with wood and pellet burning stoves, comfortable seating, large windows that bring in plenty of natural light, and televisions. Upstairs has a large wall mounted flat screen, as well as downstairs, where board games, foozeball and a shuffle table are kept. There are two master bedroom suites, both with windows, private bathrooms with plenty of light and large mirrors, and closet space. The home has many electrical outlets, so there is no fighting for a space to charge your devices. Pocket doors allow you to close off a room to keep the noise down in other parts of the home. The kitchen, dining room, and upstairs master all have sliding glass doors enabling you to bring the outdoors in. The back deck has plenty of space for you to sit and listen to the creek and the birds fluttering about. Breathe in the fresh, crisp mountain air and relax!

The garage is perfect for storing your outdoor gear like kayaks, fishing gear, ice chests, bikes, and skiis or snowboards. The backyard is ideal for sledding, and the house has sleds for you to use in the garage.

During the winter, the central heating system keeps the house at a comfortable 65 degrees, but nothing beats a fire on a snowy night. There is firewood and wood pellets on site for your convenience as well. During the summer the whole house fan keeps the home comfortable after the sun sinks behind the trees. Only occasionally does Wicker Moose Manor experience uncomfortably hot nights, but no worries - there are two portable room air conditioners to keep you cool.

GUEST ACCESS

Our guests will have access to the entire property, including the garage. The driveway can fit many cars depending on their size. Our backyard is a forested hill with a small stream at the bottom. It's just steep enough for sledding but not steep enough to be dangerous. Deer, Turkeys, Jack Rabbits, and other wildlife are frequent visitors. Security cameras are present on this property.

INTERACTION WITH GUESTS

Assistance will be available via cell phone if you have any questions or concerns. Host lives in the neighborhood and can be on site within minutes if needed. She will contact you the morning of your trip with the weather, traffic, and highway conditions (if any) and again after check-in. Please feel free to contact the host with any questions or concerns.

Snow! If your are staying with us between November and March there will likely be snow on the ground. Please carry chains or use a 4 wheel drive because the weather can be unpredictable and getting stuck is never fun. Buy chains before driving up here when winter storm conditions exist so you do not have to pay the marked up prices. We have a driveway plowing service but in case you get snowed in and need to leave in a hurry there is a snowblower and shovels in the garage.

Occasionally there will be wildlife exploring the property, please give these animals their space. Usual neighborhood guests include but are not limited to; Deer, Turkeys, Jack Rabbits, Squirrels, Ravens, Bats, Coyotes, Skunks, Foxes, Raccoons, and Possums. Wicker Moose Manor is an ideal spot for bird watching, there are many bird species that frequent the property. Please stay away from these animals, they are wild and could possibly hurt you. Do not attempt to pet or take a selfie with the wild animals.

Spacious, Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

Our party of ten adults had a wonderful stay here. The home was really nice. We had plenty of space on both floors to relax and play. The kitchen was well-stocked in terms of appliances, dinnerware, flatware, cups, and cooking utensils and tools. The dining table was huge and easily accommodated our large group for dinner and table games. The beds and futons were comfortable, and plenty of blankets and pillows were provided. (Though we wished there was a fitted sheet for the downstairs futon. We ended up just laying down a blanket and sleeping on top.) The bathrooms were all clean upon our arrival, and we were all happy with the water temperature and pressure duing showers. The home itself was super clean and stocked with all the essentials. (We had no paper towels and ran out trash bags, but it was addressed in a timely manner.) The patio and area surrounding the house was well-maintained. (We even saw deer within twenty feet of the home!) There’s plenty of parking too. We had a 15-passenger van and six cars, and we were all able to safely park them in front. Lastly, communication with Jackie was top-notch! She called us before our check-in to warn us about the recent snow and the bloated door, responded to all our texts and concerns promptly, communicated with us while she was going through the home after we checked out to make sure things were in order, and refunded our deposit within days of our checkout. I definitely will stay here again!

Great for groups!

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 families meet here for our annual Friendsgiving. We had 8 adults and 6 children under the age of 3, and there was plenty of space for everybody. The kitchen was large enough to prepare a traditional Thanksgiving dinner, and was well stocked with most of the cookware we needed. The house was CLEAN, the beds were comfortable, and the setting was nice. The pellet stove downstairs was out of order, so we needed to run the heater during our entire stay, but we were able to find a comfortable temp after the first night. My only suggestion would be to upgrade the downstairs TV to make BluRay discs and streaming an option. Thank you Jackie for a lovely stay and for being so responsive to our questions! Would definitely stay here again.
