About Bonnie Klein

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 Bonnie Klein chose Gold Country & High Sierra

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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!

A very nice property in a beautiful setting - everything needed for a pleasant and relaxing getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the property was as good as we expected - clean, comfortable and inviting. The property is located in a beautiful part of gold country. When we arrived when the weather was very cold but the heater was on for us so we were never cold in the cabin. Our small dog really enjoyed roaming around the fenced in property! The Kleins were very gracious and made sure that the cabin was "ready to move in" when we arrived. Given the need for a place to stay in the area we'd gladly return, which I guess is as good a recommendation as we can give!

Hidden gem in the Sierra foothills

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the Klein's Country Cottage on two separate occasions in November 2015, and both weeks were exceptional. The cottage is clean, well-appointed, fully provisioned with any pot, pan, kitchen accessory, movie, etc. that you could hope for in a vacation rental. Everything is clearly marked and labeled so you can find anything and everything you need.

The location is excellent, just minutes from I-80 and tucked way back at the end of a road in a nice little gated enclosure. The owners were not on the property while I was there, but I imagine when they are, they would be just as attentive as they were over email. They were on vacation when I was staying at the cottage and still responded to my questions in a very timely manner.

You can tell that they have put a lot of time and effort into making the cottage as enjoyable a place to stay as possible. They have built a nice binder of all of the local attractions, information and other amenities that the local area offers. I enjoyed going for a long hike at the Weimar Institute, just one exit down I-80 towards Auburn, and they included maps in the binder to take along.

Auburn itself is only 20 minutes away and is a great place to wander around the downtown area. My favorite restaurant is the Nectar Cafe - not to be missed! The cottage also has great access to the Lake Tahoe area via Donner Pass and Truckee, and that area is not to be missed if you vacation in the area.

I only regret that I hadn't booked the cottage sooner so I could have stayed longer into November and December!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We were blessed to stay for 2 1/2 weeks at this cozy cottage. We were transiting between homes. The surroundings are serene and peaceful. The owners have done a fabulous job making the cottage welcoming and well furnished to meet your needs.
