Auburn House Rental Photos and Description
House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 18-22)
Lakeview House is a blend of Casual Comfort and Traditional Elegance! This two story, 15 year old Victorian farmhouse combines the charm of a B&B with the practicality of a modern home. Enjoy the attention to detail inside and out! Multiple spacious rooms are great for larger gatherings. Something for all ages... the baby grand piano in the formal living room, a pool table, TV, games, and toys in the family room, and outside the badminton, decks and patios.
Downstairs, prepare meals in the large country kitchen with all the convenient amenities. Choose where you want to eat... at the large kitchen table, the adjacent formal dining room, the spacious front porch with gorgeous sunset views, or the sheltered back patio with casual seating and a fountain. Relax before the fire in the living room where there is a baby grand piano and spectacular view from the large bay window. Two downstairs bedrooms are perfect for a family unit or stair challenged persons... one room with a queen bed and the other with two singles.
Walk upstairs and the large, high ceiling family room has a pool table, satellite TV, books for young and old, games and even toys for the little ones. We've added a double futon with an inner spring mattress in an alcove, and one of the couches is a day bed that sleeps two. For the adventurous, sleep out under the stars on the upper deck! In the master bedroom suite, enjoy the spectacular view as you lay in the king size bed (also a double futon in this room). The large lilac bedroom has a queen bed, a daybed, and room for a porta-crib or kids on sleeping mats.. perfect for just a couple or a small family. The final, smaller upstairs bedroom is great for the kids... a bunk bed with a double mattress beneath a single as well as a full-size crib. On the loft above the staircase, you can relax and enjoy the panoramic view while you catch up on email or browse the web at the large oak desk.
This house is perfect for a staff retreat or a multiple family get-together (like reunions, out-of-town wedding guests), a 'girls get-away,' or an intimate wedding. For smaller families or groups, come relax, unwind and spend time with those you enjoy! The location is fantastic... the house is beautiful... all it needs is YOU!

We built the home in 1996 when our youngest daughter was an infant. We raised our five kids in the home and have loved making it a welcoming and hospitable home! We have totally enjoyed living in this beautiful foothill community for the past 22 years, and would love to share its beauty and recreational resources with you! We now have only one child at home and have moved to a smaller home in the nearby Lake of the Pines. We look forward to sharing our 'labor of love' with you!
When we lived in the home, we often had people say how much they enjoyed it. We often thought what a great B&B it would make... except that I doubt people would pay for my cooking! However I do love decorating! And people seem to enjoy the result! So we have the 'Bed' without the 'Breakfast'... preparing the meals... that's your task! And the beautiful kitchen is functional and friendly for large family style dining. Hey, there is always Round Table Pizza, Hunan's Chinese, Quizno's or The Northridge (sit down varied menu) within a 5 minute drive.
We love the fabulous sunsets, the grazing deer (when not eating the roses), the tinkling fountain, the panorama views in the morning light, and the proximity to so many recreational and historic places. We are glad that we are above the valley fog and below the snow line most days in winter. We feel blessed to live in such a fabulous area!
