About the property

The Carriage House is conveniently located between Sacramento and Lake Tahoe in the Sierra Foothills. It is a short 4 minute drive from town in beautiful and historic Auburn, Ca. The oak studded and rolling hills are home to deer and abundant wildlife. Nestled in the hills is the McCullough Castle, a private residence with royal appeal. The Carriage House is part of the castle estate but privately positioned away from the main residence.

McCullough Castle sits on 21 acres in the Sierra Foothills. The grounds and accommodations are both romantic and relaxing. Carriage House guests are welcome to stroll the property and take advantage of all the grounds have to offer. There are three ponds that encourage paddle boating, swimming and fishing. Explore the “Hobbit House”. Visit the “Hen House”. Enjoy the sunset while taking a romantic trip onto the water.

About Kindy Mccullough

We are the McCulloughs. We are a family of six with four ccildren ages 7-13. We love our quiet town of Auburn and enjoy spending time at our newly purchased castle. From the moment we enter the grounds, we are relaxed and eternally thankful.

Kindy Mccullough purchased this guest house in 2017

Why Kindy Mccullough chose Auburn

We have had our eye on this estate for quite some time. Who can resist the allure of a house designed to be a castle. The property is also irresistibly beautiful!

Our hosts were great and the guest cottage was lovely, just as described!

This is a beautiful property and our hosts were very hospitable. Unfortunately, it was too hot to take advantage of the lake and boats but we had a great time nevertheless! Thank you both for making our stay memorable!

Beautiful property. Very kind hosts.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was wonderful (even if too short!)

It was so great to escape the city for a short getaway. The location is close enough not to require a long drive but feel totally secluded.

The Carriage House feels very private - which is exactly what we wanted. The Mcculloughs were terrific hosts in that they made us feel very welcome and were completely unobtrusive - we didn't see them once during our stay, but through texting I knew that they were available for anything should we require it.

We had a fabulous time.
