Our property is 5 acres of ponds, waterfalls and fruit trees. The space, our cottage is a 1200 sq/ft 2 bedroom 1 bath stand alone structure nestled in a eucalyptus grove. We are just 3 minutes from Highway 80 so getting here is a breeze. The deck overlooks a lovely pond, large trees and granite boulders. The cottage is just a few years old and we have just finished really nice interior and exterior upgrades. The main house, our residence is nicely hidden by trees, kiwi and grape plants. The cottage feels quite private.

Very nice few days
We were pleased with our stay. There is not enough lighting on the side of the house up to the parking area. The parking area would be nicer if it was either paved or had gravel. The dust and dirt goes into the car as well as the house. Cable TV would be nice as well.
We had a wonderful time! Would highly recommend, will stay there again! :-)
Peaceful and serene
We so enjoyed this quiet and spacious cottage. Our hosts were great too. We will stay again should our paths go in this direction again. Thank you!!
Great location and property
The property is extremely tranquil. There are many trees and a couple of ponds making for a great natural setting. Cottage is well maintained and quite comfortable. Owner (Naomi) greeted us upon arrival and provided all the instructions we needed.
Great location, quiet, and clean.
Every room in this cottage is clean, comfortable, and tastefully decorated. All in all, the relaxing retreat they were striving to make. The beds are extremely comfortable! We stayed two nights. On the second night we were able to enjoy both the wonderful deck and company of Andrew, Naomi, and their sons. They are smart and thoughtful individuals. They are also a family that would respect your privacy, if that was your choice.
I did not do any cooking in the cottage, however it appears to be stocked appropriately. All of the rooms are very generous in size, including the bathroom. There are many sky lights and windows as well as french doors leading to the deck. The location makes the property super quiet and dark at night. It was hot during our stay. The window air conditioning unit, free standing room cooler, and overhead fans kept the cottage cool. There is also a woodstove and wall heating if you are staying in the winter.
We, and the couple who joined us, agree that this was a great find.
We are located a couple miles from the historic foothill town of Newcastle and just a couple more to Auburn. Three miles gets you to Folsom Lake and miles of trails. The cottage is tucked back behind our main house on nearly 5 acres. Like a park, we have lots of fruit trees, 3 ponds, granite rocks. Very peaceful.
