Perfect getaway location

  • 5 of 5

The Carriage Loft was fabulous! Country escape that included fresh eggs amazing property walk. It is on a private road which was a little tricky to find at night but so worth it. We highly recommend this property -- you will not be disappointed!

PS. If you plan to go to Hidden Falls ( 11 minutes) book ahead for a day pass.

This review is very belated, but not because our stay wasn't great. The property was beautiful and my family enjoyed our stay very much. We had come to the area to do some rafting, but due to the wild fires we were unable to do so. We were EXTRA grateful for the beautiful pool once we found that out. No need to try to come up with a fill in plan, just hang around the pool and relax.

Our kids enjoyed visiting the animals and the fresh eggs made us feel like we were at home. Fresh eggs are amazing.

If we are in this area again we would definitely plan to stay here!

Quiet, Quaint Stay in Auburn Carriage House

  • 5 of 5

We attended a wedding in Forest Hill this past weekend and I thought we'd try something different in our lodging choice. I booked this rental through We were thrilled with our decision. First of all, you can see that the Vaughn's take great pride in their property. The grounds were beautiful. The Carriage Loft that we stayed in was just adorable. We were welcomed with fresh flowers from the garden and a dozen farm fresh eggs. There is a full kitchen if you want to prepare your meals. If not, this property is located fairly close to historical downtown Auburn which is also a town worth exploring. I wish we could have stayed longer as it was a nice peaceful departure from the hustle and bustle of the city. If you're ever in this area and are looking for a place to stay, I would highly recommend this place. We will definitely be returning.

Cozy..comfortable..roomy apartment

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect getaway for our family - my husband and 2 boys. The cottage apartment was decorated tastefully. Stocked with everything you could possibly need Plenty of room for the 4 of us. We loved being in the country but also close to town, lakes, and other things to do. The grounds are just perfect - and our boys loved the pool and hot tub. The host family was lovely. Friendly but not obtrusive. They even left a dozen eggs - and my boys claimed the best they have ever had! We will definitely visit again!

Fantastic slice of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Carriage Loft for several days while in town planning for my daughter's wedding. We had absolutely everything we needed there! Also, we spent several hours each day in the pool and it was delightful. Bob and Jeanne couldn't be more gracious and kind hosts! We try and stay with them every time we come to Auburn because we can't imagine a more idyllic and peaceful surrounding. It truly is a little slice of paradise!
