Guestbook comments from the owner
My family stayed at this site for a 3 day weekend. I specified to Diane that there were 3 toddlers under the age of 3 years old. The house and surroundings are not safe for toddlers, making for a stressful vacation. Additionally, advertised as a 3+ bedroom, the house is a 2 bedroom plus loft. Not up to my families standard for cleanliness. The "pond" is really best described as a pit literally teeming with mosquito larvae. Diane, the owner, is a nice women but her advertising of the home leaves much to be desired.
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.
