About the Property
Bungalow, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)
Location, Location, Location. The home is a lovely 5 min. walk to the heart of town where you will have many choices of wonderful restaurants, coffee shops, shopping and specialty boutiques as well as many antique stores. Downtown Sonora also offers the incredible Stage 3 Theater where you can enjoy an outstanding play. You can visit the local Historical Museum to learn about Sonora's colorful gold country history. Every Saturday morning, May thru October, stroll down to the Farmers Market and take home organic produce, baked goods and local crafts. March thru December Central Sierra Arts Council has their '2nd Saturday Arts Night' where downtown art galleries, shops and eateries celebrate the arts. In the winter you are above the fog and close enough for an afternoon of skiing at two different resorts, Dodge Ridge or Bear Valley.
With so many fun destinations and adventures close by, I truly believe choosing this comfy home for your vacation stay in Sonora will be Perfect! (City Permit #TI-0006)

About the owner: Hi my name is Christina I have worked independently for 22yrs as a hair stylist in downtown. In my spare time I volunteer with Tuolumne Co. Sheriff's SAR (search and rescue) . I invite you to visit Sonora and see the many reasons why I feel it's a truly lovely community.
Why the Owner Chose Sonora, CA, USA:
In 1980 I moved to Sonora from San Diego Co. Though I missed the ocean and beaches, I quickly fell in love with the beauty and tranquility that Tuolumne Co. offered. I attended the local community college, set up my business and started putting down roots. The next step was a home. When I found my bungalow I feel instantly in love with it. It is the perfect place to come to at the end of the day, be it work or play!
The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
Being downtown is such a treat. Walking to restaurants, wine bars, theater. I am so proud to offer my home as a romantic vacation retreat or family get away. I know you will love to stay here for a long weekend or an extended stay. You'll find plenty to do – or maybe you'd just like breakfast in bed!
