This picture is of me and my dog, Amy, as we were resting on the large rock outcropping that overlooks the American River canyon on our way down the Pickering Bar trail.
We bought this as our family compound, but as lives change, so did ours. Using this home as a vacation rental has helped me to finance my son's college education. I have also been able to donate weekly reservations to the numerous good causes, including the Down's Buddy Walk and numerous fund raisers for the families of Cancer patients. I move in myself when we have company from out of town and pretend that I am 'on vacation' too! It's great!
I love hiking down into the 'diggings', exploring the old gold mining areas, swimming in the mountain lakes, sitting in the spa under the stars and just enjoying the quiet solitude of this gorgeous and peaceful setting.
Numerous local hiking trails to old gold mining areas, the American River canyon, much local history and ponds for exploring or swimming, less than 10 min. to Rollins Lake. Great location for small wedding, retreats or a family reunion.
