About the property

This newly restored gem is the perfect place to get away from it all and truly enjoy all that the gold country has to offer. All the comforts of a fine hotel with much more privacy and character. Walk to one of the great downtown restaurants or prepare a quiet meal at home in your own cozy cottage.

HAVE A LARGER PARTY? WE HAVE THE 3 BEDROOM HOME NEXT DOOR! VRBO# 980292

The home is a 5 min. walk to the heart of town where you will have many choices of wonderful restaurants, coffee shops, shopping and specialty boutiques. 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.

Another wonderful feature of this home is the convenient location, as a 'hub' to many incredible destinations

*Yosemite National Park...(1hr to the entrance gate)

*In the summer you can ride our Historic 49 Trolley bus between three of our gold rush towns: Jamestown, Sonora and Columbia.

*Sonora with it’s shopping, dining, theater

*Columbia State Park which is a preserved gold rush era town...(12 min. drive)

*Jamestown's Historic Railtown State park is called 'the most photographed railroad in the world.' 'Petticoat Junction,' 'The Wild, Wild West,' 'High Noon,' 'The Virginian,' and 'Unforgiven' were all filmed here. Recently, movie crews produced the railroad sequences in 'Back to the Future Part III'...(10 min. drive)

*Tuolumne’s Black Oak Casino offers the 5 star “Seven Sisters” restaurant for fine dinning and the Willow Lounge for some 'free' live music...(15 min. drive)

*For large lakes we have New Melones, Don Pedro and Tulloch (15-25 min. drive)

*Pinecrest Lake is surrounded by pine trees, granite rocks and rustic cabins is a beautiful lake to hike around, kayak on or enjoy relaxing on the beach with a picnic...(40 min. drive)

*Kennedy Meadows, 20 minutes past Pinecrest, you can horseback ride or hike into the Emigrant Wilderness.

*Day trip to the town of Murphys and stop on the way at Moaning Caverns to enter the caves or take a zip line adventure.

*Once in Murphy's, you'll find many great stores, eateries and amazing wine tasting rooms. In fact Murphy's has become known as “Little Napa” because of their many beautiful wineries.

*While in Murphy's visit Ironstone Winery which offers a great venue for a Summer Concert series and in their museum view the largest Crystalline Gold Leaf specimen in the world. Weighing forty-four pounds...(25 min. drive)

*Calaveras Big Trees State Park “up the hill” from Murphys (10 min) is magnificent! Hike in the famous North Grove of giant sequoias trees.

During the summer, the Sonora 'warm Indian summer nights' can be quite spectacular. You'll find Music in The Parks, free concerts, in numerous parks around the community. 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!

A Great Little Tree House

  • 5 of 5

A great rustic little cabin. Very comfortable and loved the deck for enjoying the stars and a glass of wine. The neighborhood is interesting and we left the car to walk in the area and out to dinner down town. Good exercise walking the hills. Also enjoyed Jamestown and Columbia, just minutes away. Super location!

Cute hideaway

  • 4 of 5

I slept well because it was quiet and dark! Cute place. Cleanliness could be improved: the couch and pillows in particular. I swept the porch myself. And two door knobs inside need repair (the broom closet and the bathroom). Nice stay overall though.

Relaxing, breathtaking, adorable cottage in a woodsy area off the beaten path.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a relaxing time and enjoyed staying in this rustic and beautiful small home. Perfect place for a vacation for 2 to 3 people. While we were there we had a couple encounters with wild life and saw a doe and a buck. The doe stayed near by and relaxed under a tree while I enjoyed the scenery outside while basking in the hammock. We used the propane grill and enjoyed some sausage while taking in some much needed R&R while watching tv. Saw many different types of birds and it was such a quiet little hide away from the hustle and bustle. We will be back again.
