Why Ed Arterbury chose Gold Country & High Sierra

We fell in love with this property because of its location with it's privacy and views. It was just what we were looking for.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at this wonderful home for 51 days to get away from the Midwest cold and to visit our sons and family. We had a delightful time in this home and it was perfect for having our family over who lived within an hour time frame from Jackson. We spent many wonderful days with our family here. The home is large and meant all of our needs. The pool, spa, and steam room we enjoyed immensely and so did our family. Ed was always receptive to take care of any problems that came up though their weren't many. We enjoyed this beautiful home and highly recommend it to anybody who is looking for privacy and views yet conveniently located close to Jackson and Sutter Creek.

Other than returning Ed's generosity...

  • 5 of 5

there is no reason for me to write a review. Why would I cause an increase in demand? Why would I share that I've never enjoyed such wonderful valley views? Why would I share that every nuance of Ed's home is maintained with dedication to luxury, quality and enjoyment? IF this house is available, and IF it meets your needs, you should either book it, or see a doctor as to why you haven't. I've stayed at prime VRBO's for close to 10 years - this may be my first review. (The magnificence of this house, by the way, is only out-shadowed by the character of its owner; and that's the only reason I'm writing this review. Thank you, Ed.)

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Raymond for this review. You and your family are a delight and I enjoyed the piano playing by your great kids. I am so glad you had such a great time and I hope to see you again in the future. Ed

Beautiful home with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We went for a girls weekend away, and had the best time! We didn't want to leave! The beds were comfortable, the kitchen had everything we needed, the backyard area was AMAZING! We couldn't of asked for a better weekend! The owner was great to deal with, even left a bottle of wine for us!

Beautiful home with everything you need for getaway

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with a couple of friends and we had a wonderful time. It's close to wine tasting, but you almost don't want to leave the house at all - the view is beautiful, the pool is incredible and the home is so well stocked you don't even really need to leave to have a wonderful vacation. The owner was so pleasant to work with and ensured we had everything we needed during our stay, even leaving us a bottle of wine to start out our trip! The bedding and linens were top quality and beds were so comfortable. The hot tub was a wonderful finish to the day. The fully equipped kitchen left us able to cook meals anytime we wanted, the owner even left us coffee pods which allowed us to enjoy a cup of coffee with beautiful views every morning. The only thing we weren't able to figure out how to use were the outdoor heaters, but I'm sure that was user error and we didn't end up needing them anyway since the weather was so beautiful.

This house is great for a girls or guys getaway or a family trip since it has three bedrooms and two full baths, along with a half bath downstairs. I would suggest families with older children as the pool is not gated and the patio has steep sides. Could also work great for two couples.

There is no Uber or Lyft service in Jackson but we were able to get a cab into town for dinner and a limo service for a day of wine tasting. The home is easy to find yet feels very private.

We will definitely be staying there again!

Amazing Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The house is absolutely amazing, and has everything you could want for a weekend getaway. Ed has thought of everything, and the amenities can't be beat. We rented the house for a girls weekend, and everyone loved it. All of the comforts of home (and more), and the views are great. Close to town, but we never really wanted to leave.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us! It was perfectly located near the winery where we had our daughters wedding. Just being there calmed everyone's nerves by the beauty and comfort your home provides. Including all the ammenities we could possibly have needed and then some was outstanding. Hanging out by the pool before getting ready for the wedding was truly a highlight. Everyone showed up at the winery happy and relaxed. The patio with the beautiful view of the rolling hills was the perfect place for our brunch on Sunday. Thank you so much for allowing us the opportunity to stay a little longer on Sunday to spend that extra time with our family. We are so grateful for your generosity. I do not know if it was harder to say good bye to our family that was leaving or if it was harder to leave your home! My only regret is that we did not stay just one more day. It was such a pleasure to work with you, we hope to return some day in the near future.
