We are in the Sierra Foothills east of Sacramento and east of Stockton. Our home is at 3000' elevation so we get some snow depending on the year. We are located in a small village with small groceries, gas, and pizza available, but for big shopping it is 30 min. to Jackson. Kirkwood Ski resort is a 45 min. away; South Lake Tahoe is 1- 1/2 hrs east; New Melones Reservoir is 1 hour south; Yosemite is 2 1/2 hrs south. We have quaint Gold Rush era towns, Wineries, Cave tours, Gold mine tours, hiking, fishing, boating, and other local attractions.
We live in the house and our guest room has recently been redone with a Queen size bed and separate bath is on immediate right outside of room. Our living room has a queen size pull out sofa for extra guests and we have plenty of sheets, bedding and towels.
If you are interested special arrangements may be made for dinner, or transportation to ski resort (this maybe good for those afraid of driving in the snow). I'm a good cook and interested in many cuisines, Asian, Indian, Thai, Moroccan, Mexican, and Vegetarian, etc.
Our one cat listed lives outside and has her one reserved seat on the deck although she is extremely shy and rarely seen by visitors. The dog is your typical yellow Labrador, always ready for a game of fetch and always an optimist that you will be back to play again. If you did want to bring pets, please write and describe before booking. The yard is abundant with forest visitors, raccoon, wild turkeys, quail, hummingbirds, and too many deer to count. Come on up see the stars and visit with nature. Guest AccessA private bedroom, with queen bed and one adjacent bathroom, Common areas include, living room with queen hide-abed. Kitchen is open please help yourself, David makes great morning coffee! Interaction with GuestsWe would love to suggest area's to visit depending on your trip.

We are here to help you enjoy your stay in the mountains! The NeighborhoodWe love the quiet, and the sound of the hummingbirds buzzing by to the feeders. There are many lakes nearby and we enjoy the kayaking. For a small town we have an active community theater, bustling youth center, community garden with bocce court, and a live streaming FM radio station KQBM 90.7, or 103.9FM.
