Overview

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, 18 year old Victorian farmhouse combines traditional charm with the practicality of a modern home. Enjoy the attention to detail inside and out! Multiple spacious rooms and outdoor areas 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 patio.

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. Two comfy leather couches and two double futons with inner spring mattresses (each sleep two) provide lots of seating in the spacious family room. 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 another king size 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 (maximum 30 people total, including non-staying guests). For 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!

About Priscilla (Cissy) Maxwell

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 27 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 nearby. We look forward to sharing our 'labor of love' with you!

Priscilla (Cissy) Maxwell purchased this house in 1996

Why Priscilla (Cissy) Maxwell chose Auburn

When we lived in the home, we 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'. Ppreparing 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 (now delivers), Chinese food, the Northridge Restaurant and various sandwich shops within a 5 minute drive. And Starbucks of course!

What makes this house unique

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!

Great views from a beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We spent Memorial Day weekend celebrating our mom's 80th birthday in this home and we had a fabulous time. It was so clean and comfortable, with plenty of room and beautiful custom decorator touches throughout. It had features to keep the adults happy, but it was also kid-friendly. We especially enjoyed spending time on the porch taking in the view from up on the hill. The pool table was a big hit, too. This is by far the nicest home we've ever rented and it was a perfect venue for our celebration!

Lovely home and perfect for large group retreats!

  • of 5

The Lakeview Home, located in Grass Valley, CA was very cute, homely, and ultra comfortable for all 17 people who were in my group. While we had one person who slept on a (apparently comfortable) couch, all others easily found proper sleeping arrangements. The home has been maintained extremely well and has tons of amenities (aka awesome kitchen with all necessary tools/spices). We went on a fun, easy hike to Hidden Falls, which was relaxing. The only thing is that there isn't a WHOLE lot to do very close by in terms of activities unless you commit yourself to driving to Tahoe or looking for some slightly far-off hikes. However, this suited my group perfectly since we were just there for an R&R weekend. Cissy was super responsive, friendly, and helpful. Thank you to the Maxwells for letting us stay at your home!!

Wonderful place, wonderful weekend. Five friends and I spent the weekend sewing and relaxing in this lovely home. The home is beautiful, the beds are comfortable and the views are breathtaking. We will definitely be coming back again.

Beautiful, spacious property that accommodates large groups of various ages.

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a spacious house that would be great to celebrate my 70th birthday with the entire family, including teenagers. This was the perfect choice. It is not only beautiful, with amazing decorations, but it has room for everyone. The teens thoroughly enjoyed the game room with a TV and pool table, while the adults enjoyed the living room with its piano and comfortable chairs for reading. The huge kitchen was a central gathering place, and the large dining room table was perfect for a birthday celebration and family games. Sitting on the patio and watching wild turkeys and deer roam the property was a bonus. The house is located near the city and not to far from river rafting and other outdoor activities. The owners were so welcoming, friendly and helpful. I would recommend this place to anyone, and hope to return again with a large group of friends.

A great blessing!

  • 5 of 5

Our youngest daughter got married at the empire mine park. We had family coming in from out of state and needed at least 5 hotel rooms. Instead we rented this beautiful home and it made the whole vacation! The favorite place in the house was the huge eat in kitchen and the table in the front porch! There were 15 of us and it never felt crowded! It felt like home and we were so comfortable together! Priceless! The owners were very, very accommodating! Highly recommend this home!!

Spacious home for multiple family/friends

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for Memorial day weekend. It was very spacious for group of our size. Kids used TV, games, Pool table, Basketball, .... to keep themselves busy. House was better than what is shown in picture.

It is very well stocked with all the amenities.

Separate air-condition for upstairs and downstairs was very useful.

House is at elevation and has nice views. It is also not very far from stores in case you forgot something.

Everyone enjoyed the stay and will definitely recommend this property.
