About Jenn Sellers-Rein
We're Jenn and Jodi Sellers-Rein. We relocated to Alta, CA after spending the last 20 years living in Southern California and we couldn't be happier about our choice of both home and location. It's been an amazingly welcoming community. We operate Crystal Springs Inn as a Bed and Breakfast at most times, but we're giving this whole home rental a try because we know how special our home is and want to share it. We thoroughly enjoy hosting, but we also enjoy traveling in our RV with our dog and cat. We've only been here since March of 2018, and we've been operating as a B&B since November of 2018, after getting to know the quirks of living in a house that's almost 130 year old. The previous owners of Crystal Springs had it completely renovated in 1989, so though the house is celebrating 130 years in 2020, the plumbing and electric is only 30, which saves a lot of headache in maintenance.
Why Jenn Sellers-Rein chose Baxter
We like to say this property found us, because it did! In fall of 2017 our youngest started college - and our ties to SoCal were almost done - Both of our kids were in college in Northern California so we knew we were headed north. When we started our search we initially had a campground setting in mind - small house, lots of land to build tiny houses and yurts... Then this house called, so we jumped in head first and the campground idea faded rather quickly. We're still looking to expand the guest experience and may eventually build cabins or yurts on the property, but for now we're having fun sharing Crystal Springs with both old and new friends.
What makes this House unique
The whole experience of staying here at Crystal Springs is quite relaxing. Our high-speed internet is limited (no gaming - blame the mountains), so its a great place to disconnect from electronic stress and reconnect with friends and family. Our area has lots of offer for activities, but we find that the best memories are made on the front porch, rocking in the rocking chairs and sipping a tea or glass of wine (or bourbon!). That's where you'll find us most mornings and evenings, along with a few of our great neighbors that drop by for visiting. We have an open door policy when we're here, and it's lead to lots of new friends and a ton of fun. We normally operate as a Bed & Breakfast during winter time, but for now we've decided to live in our RV while you get to have the Crystal Springs Inn all to yourselves! See you soon!
