About the Property
2 bedroom, 1 bath with pool, spa, and garden in California's Central Valley
The McBride family is pleased to share our beautiful guest house with you while you are away from home. Whether you are on a business trip, seeing family, or vacationing in our great Central Valley, The McBride Guest House is a perfect place for you to relax and spend private time. We are located in Atwater, CA in a semi-rural residential neighborhood in Merced County. We are ideally located for vactioners who are traveling through the valley. We are 2 hours from the San Francisco Bay area, 2 hours from the northern Central coast, and 2 hours from Yosemite National Park, 2 miles off Highway 99. Our guest home provides a large space (1150 square feet), which includes: 2 bedrooms (and 1 roll-away bed), 1 full bathroom, fully-equipped kitchen (stove/oven, microwave, full size refrigerator, coffee pot, pots/pans, dishes, and untensils), family room, 3 televisions, one in the living room and one in each bedroom, radio / Ipod speaker, washer and dryer, and a private garage. The McBride Guest House is detached from the main house to provide complete privacy. It sits on the back portion of our 1-acre of land, nestled in a park like setting. Behind the guest house, you will find fruit trees, berry bushes, and a vegetable garden, bursting with home-grown delights that are yours for the picking during the summer months, as well as a picnic table under the trees and a BBQ grill. You may also relax on the patio area off the kitchen or practice your putting on the putting green next to the patio. During the hot summer months, enjoy a refreshing dip in the pool or a morning or evening soak in the jacuzzi. Rather than stay in an impersonal hotel room, choose the The McBride Guest House for a true home-away-from home experience.

We are also just a short 2 hour drive to the gorgeous northern central coastal communities of Santa Cruz, Capitola, Aptos, Monterey, and Carmel.

About the owner: Hi there! We are looking foward to meeting you and assisting in any way with your travels through the Central Valley. We grew up in Merced County and know the valley in and out. We can give you the 'local' perspective on what to see, where to eat, where to shop, and how to get around. Scott works in local government for the City of Atwater and Jennifer is an English professor at a local college. We have 2 teenage children. We are pleased to share our guest house and knowledge of the Central Valley with you.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The McBride Guest House offers many things that a traditional hotel room cannot. When you stay with us, you will be in a quiet, established, semi-rural neighborhood, with all the comforts of home. Stroll out to the vegetable garden and picking fresh tomatoes, prepare a home-cooked meal in the large kitchen, or pick seasonal fresh berries, apricots, plums, peaches, or pomegranates for a sweet snack while you spend the day by the pool or putting on the green. The local hotels are cold, small, and impersonal, but The McBride Guest House is your home-away-from-home, comfortable and private, with beautiful outdoor features. So please be our guests and enjoy all we have to offer.
