About the Property
House, 6 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 19-26)
Near Ironstone Vineyards where they have a summer concert series, and Frogtown where they have all kinds of events.
This charming huge house was first built by the Jolly Tar Mine's owner era 1860 during the Goldrush and Wild West times. It was added onto in the 1950's and then again in the 1980s. It was updated in 2009-2010. The house is packet full of interesting Antiques, Art, and unusual things.
If you are looking for a prefect mint condition vacation rental than this is not the place for you. The Jolly Tar Mine House is an old mine house with imperfections, but it is a very clean, fun and loving place to gather. Its a great place to relax, have fun, celebrate a wedding, anniversary, birthday party, family reunion, church retreat, large family vacation and more. People get happy just being in the house, its a very special place.
This is the place most kids want to have their birthday party. Its a place that groups of fisherman want to stay so they down have to unhook their boats, its a place that a family can have a reunion year after year, its a place where bikers, cyclists, spelunkers, 4 wheelers, and other groups can be together and have fun.
Vacation rentals like this are an inexpensive way to have a vacation since you can cook your own food, split the cost amongst several people and have all the comforts of a large family home at your disposal.

About the owner: I am a writer and the CEO of ProvidersWeb, an international caregiver's organization. Over the years I raised many kids in this house. It's always been a house full of fun, love and joy. It's my desire to share this wonderful place with families and groups that want to spend time with one another and have fun. ~ Diane
Why the Owner Chose Angels Camp, CA, USA:
This is a very fun place to stay, please read our excellent reviews.
The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
Over Easter we had a family get-together and had a lot of people spend the night. It was so much fun, we had a sing-a-long around the camp fire BBQ pit in the backyard, and the next morning a wonderful Easter breakfast for 40 people and egg hunt. Since Jan 2010 we have had 4 birthday parties and 6 other parties for my family and friends at the house - it was pure joy. It's great when you can all stay together and cook meals and have fun.
