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 as well as many antique stores. 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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I had a great time discovering Sonoma. This home was more than we hoped for. Very clean and well maintained. The yard was lots of fun for the kids. The host answered our questions via text throughout the weekend and was very kind. We truly enjoyed our stay and look forward to coming back again.

Charming Mountain Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Four of us stayed at this property for my brother’s wedding at Union Hill Farm (12 minutes up the road). The house is wonderfully comfortable and well-maintained. Make sure you enjoy time on the porch looking down the hill into town. The large side yard with the pergola, barbecue, and swings was a bonus. This was my first experience with a VBRO house and I would definitely do it again. Thanks, John!

Hidden Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for my daughters wedding at Union Hill. I wish we could have spent more time there! Beautiful older home with lots of amazing little touches. Beautiful views of a few churches in Sonora since you are sitting on top of a hill. I would rent this just to get away for a few day. Next time I will come when the weather is a little nicer to take advantage of the hammock on the back porch.

Fantastic getaway

  • 5 of 5

Amazing place to get out of town and relax. I didn't realize how close this would be to downtown and yet it feels and sounds so secluded. We had so much planned and sometimes found it hard to leave! Couldn't have asked for a better location in town.

Will definitely be looking into this place again when I'm up in the Sonora area!

Cozy place to call "home"

  • 5 of 5

This place was a little "gem" that I almost don't want to write about it. I have high standards and it was immaculate! The off street parking was great. It is located in the historic part of downtown Sonora, and walkable to many shops & restaurants. The purpose of our trip was to visit family. We walked to candy shop, bookstore, ramen restaurant, and was centrally located by short drive to the hospital, playground, & skate park. It was super kid friendly, with a great yard. I could safely send our children outside to play in the yard while I cleaned house. The outdoor pergola with large picnic table & bbq was great for entertaining a meal with our relatives. The house has all the amenities a home cook could ask for. Thanks John, for a great accommodation. We felt warm, safe, clean, and cozy!!
