About Krista Crookham

In 2004 our family of 4 (One on the way...) drove into the beautiful town of Graeagle. We drove through this amazing town, had a yummy lunch in Blairsden, visited the local Graeagle Grocery Store for a soda, and stopped at Mill pond for a look (As it was snow covered at the time.) Needless to say it was love at first sight! We found ourselves hours later at a local Real Estate office scanning listings. We drove back to El Dorado Hills, near Sacramento, with nothing but Graeagle on our minds. Two days later my husband and I headed back for another look and found ourselves walking through our property @ 40 Paiute Trail. Even though a renovation was clearly in order, we loved its location and charm even with the pea green carpets that adorned our home. We placed our offer that day! Now 11 years later and 3 children getting busier as years go by, we find it harder and harder to visit our lovely home. We hope you will come and enjoy it as much as our family has!

Krista Crookham purchased this house in 2004

What makes this house unique

We love the fact that we rarely get in our car. The kids ride bikes everywhere. We walk downtown daily, enjoying all that this charming town has to offer. Mill pond is a short walk away. No need for cars here.

Needs some TLC!

  • 3 of 5

We were reserved for 2 weeks and you would think there would be more amenities and ready for our stay. The property needs a lot of attention for rental purposes-too many mention.

Owner's Response: If there is one thing I can say in response to this guests review of our vacation home, it would be; as much as one tries (as I sincerely do) you truly cannot please everyone every time. Unfortunate as that is. Writing a response to a review such as this is not easy, as the pride I take in every guests stay is first and foremost. I reached out to this guest shortly after their arrival checking on their stay. During our conversation they expressed a need for additional bath towels (4-sets were left for their stay) and several more dish towels (several were already in the home provided). It was two guests. I immediately made arrangements to have the housekeeper deliver those additional supplies to them at a time that was most convenient for the guests. When my housekeeper arrived to drop the additional towels off, the husband talked to her about the quality of our Weber gas grill. Although it is not brand new, it is in excellent working order and to date, no complaints. The husband discussed with her that upon their arrival the grill was dirty and needed a thorough wipe down from the prior guests stay. We missed the mark on this detail and I sincerely apologized to the guests after learning of this. Certainly not a detail, as a host , we should have missed. Following every guests stay we burn off the grill, along with wiping it down. Unfortunately, this detail was overlooked. I'm beyond sorry this happened. We should not have missed this. Please note: When this was shared with us the guest had already cleaned the grill. Otherwise, we would have taken care of the situation ASAP. Other than the described details above, I'm lost on a response. Very difficult to respond to a review that doesn't state ones specific issues. Please know, we truly care about every guests experience, and take sincere pride in providing a clean comfortable home for all of our guests to enjoy while exploring Graeagle!

The perfect getaway

  • 4 of 5

A lovely home. Very private. Clean. This is the perfect home for a couples getaway, or, a family vacation. Kitchen had everything we needed. The location was close to town, shops, grocery store and Graeagle activities. The beds were very comfortable. A peaceful atmosphere, with wildlife coming to visit each day. The perfect house to enjoy the pines, quiet, and beauty of the Sierra's. Krista was a pleasure to work with on the reservations. We will be sure to return to this vacation home.

Lovely visit to the Mohawk Valley

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 3 day visit to this lovely home in Graeagle. It's close to a family reunion we attended and we enjoyed the peace and quiet, comfortable bedding and the turkeys that came by for a visit each morning! The morning walks were glorious and the night sky was incredible. Krista was most accommodating with every detail and we highly recommend this as nice get away with lots to do in the area.

Beautiful, Cozy... Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here 5 nights, we could have easily stayed longer! From the moment we walked into the home we were greeted with a beautifully decorated and clean home! The game table and kayak were a definite bonus. We spent our days hiking and playing at mills pond just a couple minutes from the home. Our evenings were spent eating dinnes together on the back deck and taking in all the beautiful trees that surrounded the home. We had nightly visits from the deer who we named Ella. Our vacation couldn't have been more peaceful. Krista was a delight to do business with she was so helpful and easy to talk to. We are already looking forward to coming back to Graeagle and staying in this beautiful home again. Thank you Krista for sharing your space with us!

Super comfy house and guest friendly accommodations!

  • 4 of 5

Cute cabin like house, very clean and comfortable. Owners are very kind and helpful. Beds were all super comfortable--we usually don't enjoy beds away from home, but these beds were extra comfortable! Very guest friendly accommodations and we would have enjoyed a longer visit!
