Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: My wife Jeanne and I met when we were young and have enjoyed a fairy tale romance ever since. We enjoy providing wholesome accommodations and hospitality to others. If you stay in our pool house, you can expect a wonderful time. We provide farm fresh eggs from our own chickens.

Why the Owner Chose North Auburn, CA, USA:
It is beautiful, well appointed and we appreciate our guests.

The Unique Benefits at this Guest House:
The greatest compliment that most of our guests give is spending time at the pool and pool house instead of running off. Just think of the times when you absolutely loved your accommodations. That is what you will find here.
