About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.25 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

Charming & comfortable Western-themed cottage on a 5-acre ranch located on the 1200+ acre Tryon Ranch, yet within 3-minute walk to Angels Creek and the historic Gold Rush town of Angels Camp - the 'base camp' for Sierra Mountain sports.

Enjoy cocktails or meals on the private shady patio with optional canopy. Cook in the fully equipped kitchen, or enjoy one of the area's many fine restaurants.

The cottage features a king bed (which can be divided into 2 twins) with separate entrance; shower bath plus additional dressing room with sink vanity; and queen-size sofa bed in the living room. A gas-fired country stove provides ambiance while cottage has a full air-conditioning and heating system.

Angels Camp is becoming known as the 'base camp' for Sierra Mountain Sports. Within a 2-hour drive, you can visit Lake Tahoe to the north or Yosemite National Park to the south, or the many fine attractions in the High Sierra. This is the perfect place to stay when visiting the Gold Country as it is central to shopping, dining, wine-tasting, and outdoor sports almost too numerous to mention.

About Anne and Bob

I bought Littlewood Ranch in late 2002 when I retired from a career in journalism and international public relations. Since I was a teenager in Southern California, I've enjoyed horses and ranching. Now I can tend fences, help neighboring ranchers round-up and brand cattle, and 'ride the range'. The main house (our home) is a 1950s style ranch house and is about 200 feet from The Cottage, yet separated by nearly 60 trees that provide an ever-changing landscape depending on the season.

Anne and Bob purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Anne and Bob chose Gold Country & High Sierra

The Cottage on Littlewood Ranch is just 200 feet from the main house on the ranch. We've used it for years as a guest cottage for our friends and family visiting the area. Now we're offering it to visitors who want to enjoy all that Angels Camp and the Gold Country have to offer.

What makes this cottage unique

Privacy, wonderful views, working ranch, proximity to main roads, proximity to restaurants, movies, museums, wine tasting rooms and wineries, and numerous outdoor activities for all ages, abilities and interests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a great rustic experience to be in Angels Camp over the holdiays. We really appreciated the WiFi coverage so we could get up and work early in the morning and then play and enjoy the rest of the day - and evening. The cottage is warm and cosy and we love the little gas-heated stove to take the chill off. We walked to town for coffee and lunch and loved being with the horses, and of course Molly.



Thanks for a great week!

Serene Christmas for two

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was a perfect change of pace for us. The surrounding hills , the animals and the peace of this place were what we enjoyed. We appreciated the welcoming details that Bob and Anne included in the cottage. It is a perfect location for short drives to wonderful places of interest as well. On Christmas day we drove up to Calaveras Big Trees to walk on the snow covered trail and gaze up at the amazing giant sequoia trees. It was a winter wonderland. Thank you Anne and Bob for everything.

Very nice

  • 5 of 5

Feels remote, but minutes walk from Main Street in Angels Camp. Murphys and Calaveras Big Trees are quite close. Simple cottage, horses right outside are a fun bonus. Really tough to beat. Nice price as well.

Homey, Cozy & Warm on 4 Rainey Days

  • 5 of 5

My adult son and I planned on many activities during our 4 day visit to Angel's Camp. As it turned out, I was not feeling well when we arrived and it rained for the next 3 days. So we were cottage bound for most of our time in the Gold Country. Happily, the place was perfect for hunkering down and being grateful for the rains. The property was welcoming with the Lab, Molly, and our host who greeted us and spoke of some of the activities around the Gold Country. We enjoyed being snug in the living room with a fireplace. Everything we needed to cook and be comfortable was provided. I loved looking out the window at the colorful Maple Trees and at the two horses encamped across the driveway. The cottage was clean and warm. It is a very peaceful place. I'd recommend it to anyone seeking relaxation, comfort and beautiful surroundings.

Sincerely,

Lonnie

Relaxing Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The cottage at Littlewood Ranch is the perfect spot for a relaxing getaway. My wife and I spent the weekend here and we absolutely loved it. The ranch offers privacy, beautiful views, and a calm, quiet environment. The cottage had everything we needed and was plenty of space for two people. The icing on the cake was the bed -- so comfortable! We hope to stay here again and we would definitely recommend this spot to others.

Gold Country Adventure

  • 5 of 5

Took our kids to see gold country and really enjoyed this cabin in Angel's Camp. We went gold panning in Jamestown, rode the steam engine at Railtown 1897, visited Columbia State Historic Park (awesome), and did some wine tasting in Murphys. The cabin was lovely: comfortable, safe and well maintained, loved the horses and it was an easy walk into town (although almost all businesses were closed down). Easily fit 2 adults and 2 kids (ages 7 & 10)
