And now, the fine print:
IMPORTANT: When placing a reservation request, please enter the exact number of your party, including infants. Not only do Airbnb policies pertain to guests of all ages and sizes, but we provide utilities and supplies for every guest. Increased guest numbers are reflected in increased costs for us, especially in hot and cold weather.
- Our guests often describe our space as homey. Yay! However, that's not the same as being at your mom's house. :-) If you make a mess of the oven, microwave, stovetop, etc., PLEASE CLEAN UP AFTER YOURSELF! If you would, empty the grounds from your last pot of coffee or the dregs from your last pot of tea, clean your last set of dirty dishes, and so on. We don't have a cleaning staff and don't charge a cleaning fee.
Do not remove the smoke/carbon monoxide detectors. Haven't you seen those scary commercials?!
ABSOLUTELY NO CANDLES! Not only are they a fire hazard, but we have cleaned wax off the table made by our late dad, off the painted floor, off the rug, etc.
No pets are allowed in the cottage, due to some guests' allergies. Guest AccessSelf-contained separate unit
Fully stocked kitchen
Orchard Interaction with GuestsFriendly but not intrusive :-) The NeighborhoodWe are surrounded by historical spots! Yuba, Sutter and Nevada Counties are filled with Gold Rush history, tiny towns to visit, gold mines to tour, bird watching, hiking, river accesses and so on. We keep lots of books on local history in the cottage, as well as a binder of info on available activities. Getting AroundPark right in front of our house on our side of the road. Easy-peasy!
Located near Highways 65 and 70
Park-and-ride bus to Sacramento stops less than 1 mile away. Other Things to NoteDon't use the map on Airbnb. It'll lead you astray, every time. We don't mind getting calls from lost guests, but it's no fun for them. Use the address and directions we've placed on the reservation confirmation page.
