Very nice location and easy to get up to the ski resorts. The house was very comfortable and enjoyable. We had nice family time, nice meals and watched several movies. I would recommend this house to others as a great getaway for the weekend or vacation.
I'm so pleased that Serenity Central did her job. I focus on this home being a true place of chill out, rest and lots and lots of options of movies and places to wander in the woods. Thanks for coming and always a pleasure to have you!
Truly a relaxing home away from home
Serenity Central was a fantastic home base for exploring the nearby national parks--and the fantastic, local Dutch Flats community pool. The property was spacious, cozy, stocked with anything you might need (and more), and offered indoor and outdoor space. We especially appreciated the grill on the upstairs deck, which made our Labor Day adventure complete. Add to all of this the overall spiritual, supportive vibe of the decor, and you have a truly special place to stay.
Communication about the property and details for check-in and out were fantastic. I really appreciated the print outs waiting for us at arrival, with lots of information beyond just the property, but also the local town and nearby things to see.
Peace and Relaxation - What a Way To Spend Thanksgiving
We couldn’t have asked for a more inviting place to stay. The house relieved us of any stressors we’d brought with us as soon as we walked in. It was a perfect place to read, watch a mystery or two, complete a few crossword puzzles, and catch up on sleep. Everything we needed was there, and the owner was very accommodating before, during and after our stay.
We had the best time at this relaxing comfortable cabin. Close to an awesome pool with nice families and a fun walk into town. Many different sounds of birds, squirrels, chickens and trains are a welcome change from city life.
Perfect Sierra Destination
This uniquely decorated home is the perfect destination for someone wanting a short drive from the valley to a relaxing stay in the Sierras. The house is light and airy with forest views from every room and the wonderful fenced deck on the upper level is great for children, pets, bbqs and just unwinding in a forest setting. If you want a little more adventure the area is perfect for hiking, and if you have off road vehicles there are miles of dirt roads to explore in the area. The owner is enthusiastic and accommodating .
Thanks so much. I truly hope you and your sweet hound will come again soon. Geri
A *restful, *relaxing, *retreat.
I so enjoyed my three days and nights at this simple yet elegant cottage in the magical setting of the silent sentinals of the Sierra. There is a feeling of "leaving it all behind" as one slips out of the hubbub of the valley and into the welcoming comfort of this beautiful natural environment. Contributing to this sense of comfort is the cottage ambiance; the warmth of the dancing fire, the starlit views from the ample deck, simple fare from the well detailed kitchen, and I recommend a good friend to share it all with. This is a great getaway for a three "*r" destination (rest,relax and retreat). Enjoy!
Half hour hike to American River, fabulous trails to explore
Antiquing in town and towns nearby
Snow skiing about an hour away. Fabulous community pool open in summer, less than a block away.
