Private Country Estate on 16 acres in California's Gold Country
About Property Manager
I love traveling and writing about my travels! I am a California native and love the beauty of the California Foothills, as well as sharing it with others.
Property Manager purchased this Farmhouse in 2005
Why Property Manager chose Penn Valley
I believe this is one of the loveliest areas in the state, and so many people have commented on the natural beauty of our estate in the Penn Valley area. It is a working vineyard, so you may see us occasionally out in the grapes or tending the garden, but you will have privacy during your stay in the Guesthouse.

peaceful & comfortable
The home was very clean, well stocked and laid out with information sheets everywhere. The beautiful garden was in full bloom and the birds were amazing. It's a large space and yet it feels very cozy and warm. I highly recommend this house.
We enjoyed hosting you! So glad you got to see the brilliant blooms, green lawns, and stunning spring here on our 16 acres! Thank you for staying with us!
Perfect for family reunion
Rough and Ready Vineyard was perfect for our family of six adults and four children. It's proximity to Grass Valley and Nevada City as well as Lake Wildwood was perfect. Furnishing were a bit dated but that was part of the charm. Be aware that everything is on the second floor, it was not problem for our family, just be aware. At night, we had a fire in the wood burning stove which kept things toasty. Have already recommended it to friends.
We love staying at the rough and ready guesthouse!! Tiffany and Jorge were very attentive and communicative. We will be back!
This is the best place ever!
We have stayed at many homes over the past 18 years and this was definitely the best so far! We had so much space for our family of eight and our pets. The house is absolutely beautifuland the rooms and beds are so comfortable! There are several rooms and three bathrooms! Plenty of hot water and everything worked! The indoor temperature was prefect! We had everything we needed! It is super clean and very welcoming. It is in a perfect location with a gorgeous landscape and yard that gave us a lot of space for peace and quiet and room to play outside games too! I really cannot say enough good things about this home! It is PERFECT for a family visit or a wedding venue! We want to go back again!!!! Thank you so much for making a Christmas trip a HUGE success!
Awww, thanks for your kind words Jill! We are glad you experienced the wonderful things we love about our home too! We would love to welcome you, your family, and your dogs back again in the future. You were perfect guests!!
Beautiful Property for a Retreat!
Loved the property - perfect for a group retreat. Loved the coziness of the space! A bit of confusion on the use of the open space.
Bridgeport on the Yuba River is just 10 miles down the road and offers plenty of hiking and swimming opportunities.
The Penn Valley area offers some tasty treats in its cafe's and numerous secondhand stores for hunting down unique treasurers. There is a nearby grocery store (Holiday Market) and a number of restaurants for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
Stroll along the streets of downtown Grass Valley, only 12 miles away, with its eclectic mix restaurants, coffee houses, antique shops, and local businesses. Visit the Empire Mine, a California state park, to see what was one of the richest gold mines in the world! It is an adventure for all ages and a fun look back into the history of California's gold country.
Venture in downtown Nevada City, about 17 minutes away, for the quaint historic town tour. Many fine eateries line the streets of Nevada City as well as many as many great locally owned shops!
Centrally located, you can be skiing at Boreal and other Donner Summit area resorts in an hour, or exploring Lake Tahoe by driving just a bit further. Find a local fishing guide during summer to catch striped bass and king salmon on the Feather and Sacramento rivers. Old Town Sacramento is another great destination, only an hour away.
