Owner info

About the owner: We have raised our children here in the country and now they are grown and on their own. We enjoy visits from them and our grandchildren and love our new little Miniature Schnauzer named Watson.

Why the Owner Chose Colfax, CA, USA:
We moved here 26 years ago from southern California because we loved Lake home is also in the Sierra Nevada's and has the same feel. We can drive just a little over an hour and visit Lake Tahoe whenever we want. We usually visit only once a year because we have beautiful Lake Rollins just 15 min away.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Conveniently located between Auburn and Colfax, it is nestled in the Sierra Nevada's and only 3 minutes off of Interstate 80. Our fenced, gated and secure acre has two homes on it. We live in the main house and are usually here to ensure your visit in our cottage is the best possible!
