About the property

Private Country Estate on 16 acres in California's Gold Country

Our private estate can host your family and friends for a vacation, a small conference, a celebration, or just a peaceful retreat. The home has beds for 16 people and features on on-site chapel perfect for gatherings such as a small wedding or family reunion. It can also be used for conferences or women's retreats. It has beautiful grounds that feature a seasonal creek, heritage oaks, and an Italian marble gazebo. The California Foothills are fun year-round, and our estate is a central location for day trips to ski in the Sierras, go to the beach or San Francisco, hike in the Tahoe National Forest, visit the Wild and Scenic Yuba River, or learn about the history of gold mining while trying your own hand at striking it rich! Thanks for learning more about our home and area -- we hope to welcome you soon!

Perfect Place for Family Birthday Celebration

  • 5 of 5

Our family gathered and spent a long weekend at this beautiful house--celebrating a family birthday. We're glad we discovered this peaceful vacation spot. We loved the morning walks around the property and vineyard (sampling the grapes since we were there at harvest time!). Much of our time was hanging out in the great room & kitchen area. Other favorite spots were the front porch and the deck. The cousins loved staying together in the "bunk room" that sleeps 4 in beds. We found this vacation rental secluded, yet close enough to town for morning coffee (Peets!) and eating out. One fun day trip was to the Yuba River near the old covered bridge. And another to historic Nevada City. But always anxious to get back to the house and just hang out. We can see how this would also be an amazing wedding spot...what a setting! We'd go back again, for sure!

Beautiful Private Estate

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed here as a family and came together for a wedding in the gazebo, followed by a lovely catered dinner in the chapel. It was a beautiful day and a restful weekend. I can't imagine a more perfect and peaceful place to spend time with loved ones and celebrate the beginning of life together. Thank you to the wonderful staff who ensured we had solid referrals to a great caterer, florist, and photographer, and made the preparations for us for tables and chairs as well as decor. The home was beautiful and comfortable, and provided every need. We hope to return next year for just a weeklong getaway with extended family to explore more of the area (we loved Bridgeport and swimming in the Yuba river!) and enjoy a restful week in the foothills. Many thanks!
