About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (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 Angels Camp

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!

My third perfect visit to the cottage !

  • 5 of 5

I will never grow tired of staying at Anne and Bob's cottage. It is filled with everything that a vacationer could ask for and feels like home when you enter it. I look forward to many more special times there.

Lovely and peaceful oasis

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful time here over New Years weekend. Perfectly thought out Western decor that was understated, and felt like a boutique hotel. The cotton waffle robes and the pressed linens added to the feeling of quality. The efficiency kitchen had everything we needed. Even the little Christmas tree had Western ornaments and easy to turn on lighting! Each morning we visited with the horses across the driveway. The property is very serene. For a winter spot it had everything we needed and was close to both Angels Camp center and a short drive to Murphys. The cottage is on the same property as the owners, but a discreet distance that offered privacy. We felt recharged in just two days. Hope to visit again!

Lovely peaceful getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Cottage at Littlewood Ranch was wonderful! The accommodations were perfect for our family of four (2 adults and 2 children), and is equipped with absolutely everything one would need. Most importantly, it was very clean, comfortable and cozy. The entire property is gorgeous and it felt like such a treat to come “home” to the cottage and relax after a day of exploring the area. We cooked our breakfasts in the kitchen and grilled our dinners outside while taking in the beautiful sunsets, and our children played on the little play structure just beyond the patio. We do hope to return. This place is a gem!

Peace and comfort in the country

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in many VRBO properties and this is my favorite. The cottage was clean, nicely decorated, and clearly designed as a family home. The setting is lovely, even in the fall when the hills are brown instead of green, and the friendly horses add a welcoming touch. I highly recommend the Cottage at Littlewood Ranch.
