The SpaceSituated in the quiet retreat of Loomis, CA among a friendly neighborhood, the Carriage House at Horseshoe Bar is a detached above garage guest house containing 1 bedroom, 1 full bath, a kitchennette and living/dining room combination.
The Carriage House includes a queen-size bed (with memory foam topper) in the bedroom, a queen size pull-out sofa in the living room for the kids or additional guests, a kitchennette (no stove) and dining area, equipped with a refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven, Brita water pitcher, and coffee maker. There is a flat screen TV with DirecTV access, and very fast private Wi-Fi connection. The full bathroom is stocked with essential toiletries. Snacks and breakfast goods for the morning after will be waiting for you upon arrival.
Both the living room and bedroom have window air conditioner units and a wall heater is located in the living room.
Guest parking is available inside the gated property near the entrance to the Carriage House. Guest AccessThe Carriage House has a completely private entrance with its own front door. Guests have access to the side yard where there is parking and a patio area with a picnic table. In the summertime, guests are welcome to pick blackberries and grapes off the bushes and vines located along the side yard property line.
****Please be sure to notify us if you would like to explore the fenced off backyard as we have a newly adopted shelter dog, named Sweet Pea, who has access to the backyard and is still in training so her behavior may still be unpredictable with strangers. We will be sure to have her on a leash if you want to access the back yard.*** Interaction with GuestsBoth my husband and I love learning about our travelers and are glad to be of help if needed for local information, but leave the level of interaction up to our guests. We are both working professionals and are just a phone call away if not at the main house. We will make every effort to welcome and settle our guests but will be communicative about how to access the property if work responsibilities cannot be helped. The NeighborhoodThough situated among a friendly neighborhood of houses, The Carriage House feels like a cozy country retreat, with all of the modern conveniences just a short trip away. We are only 5 minutes away from a Raley’s supermarket, Starbucks, and The Flower Farm (a local wine trail favorite for lunch and wine tastings). Feel free to bring your bikes as many attractions are just a bike ride away, from exploring downtown Loomis to the parks around Folsom Lake. But perhaps the most appealing feature of this retreat is its close proximity to Downtown Sacramento and Roseville to the South, Folsom shopping to the East, and Gold Country – Auburn, Grass Valley, Nevada City and Lake Tahoe to the North.
Whether you just want a weekend getaway, or perhaps a place to rest and relax after a long days bike ride, shopping, or perhaps visiting local colleges for your child at Sacramento State University, or UC Davis, you will be guaranteed a lovely restful place to just get away. Getting AroundOur location is 12 minutes from old town Auburn, 15 minutes from The Fountains Outdoor Shopping Mall and Restaurants in Roseville, 45 minutes away from Grass Valley and Nevada City, 20 minutes from Folsom Shopping Malls, and 1 hour an 30 minutes from Sierra at Tahoe. There is no convenient public transportation close by, so a rental car or other reliable means of transportation is a must, especially for those picnics at Folsom Lake, Tahoe Day Trips, and explorations of the wineries and breweries in Auburn, El Dorado Hills, and Amador County. Other Things to NoteTrail maps, local winery and brewery information, and guides are all in the Carriage House as well as all of the essentials – shampoo, soap, extra toothbrushes (should you forget yours), and a hair dryer.
