Property description

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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Angels Camp, CA, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
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.
