Guestbook comments from the owner
This really is as good it gets. For anyone (especially a couple) wishing to explore and enjoy the great history of the California gold country, there is no better place to call your home away from home then the Vaughn's Cottage Pool House. It's a spectacular find. The place is immaculate, well furnished -- not with furnishings that one would expect to find in a rental unit -- but the well thought out care that goes into decorating a place for one's family and friends. It's truly a majestic cottage. From the hardwood floors to the granite counter tops to the double-headed two person walk-in shower to the luxurious bathrobes to the gorgeous fresh flowers throughout -- the Vaughns keep in mind every detail that makes a stay special. We were welcomed with a bottle of Mt. Vernon Zinfandel. And Jeannie also brought over fresh buttermilk and her own special pancake and waffle mix (with the fresh eggs). The gourmet kitchen with high end china and cooking utensils produced a sumptuous first morning's breakfast. My husband and I had a super time -- and the Vaughns are pet friendly. We brought our well- behaved black lab -- who enjoyed the expansive property. From waking up to flocks of geese to slipping for a soak in the hot tub to cuddling by the fireplaces -- there are two -- one in the cottage living room and one by the hot tub -- this is a great place. There is even a welcome book that lists top restaurants and things to do in the area. Robert Vaughn's recommendations for Grass Valley and Nevada city were spot-on. And the local French restaurant just down the street -- it doesn't look great from the outside, it's next to a bail's bondsman -- was the best meal we had on our trip -- and there are some really good restaurants up and down route 49. Thank you, thank you! Tom and I had a wonderful respite out of the City -- and we absolutely enjoyed the amazing friendliness of Auburn -- the Vaughns are very much a part of that refreshingly friendly and cordial community.

My wife Jeanne and I met when we were young and have enjoyed a fairy tale romance ever since. We enjoy providing wholesome accommodations and hospitality to others. If you stay in our pool house, you can expect a wonderful time.

We provide farm fresh eggs from our own chickens.

Bob Vaughan purchased this house in 2009

It is beautiful, well appointed and we appreciate our guests.

The greatest compliment that most of our guests give is spending time at the pool and pool house instead of running off. Just think of the times when you absolutely loved your accommodations. That is what you will find here.

BEAUTIFUL! PEACEFUL AND FULL OF AMENITIES!

This pool cottage was absolutely AMAZING! It was exactly as explained in the description. Bob (owner) is a wonderful friendly man! We stayed for 3 nights and I have to say, it wasn't enough! The kitchen is all decked out with stainless steel appliances and is very open. The shower….oh the shower….it is very large with two shower heads! There is a new washer and dryer in the cottage which is really nice also. I would recommend this cottage to anyone whether it is a couple or a couple with 2 kids. The pool and spa are just wonderful! Thank you, Bob for a wonderful time and we look forward to coming back with our kids and grandchild!

LOVELY PLACE

  • 5 of 5
This place is so charming. Four of us stayed here to go rafting nearby. Two to three people is ideal, cots available but space is tight. The fresh eggs were yummy. Two full bathrooms was good to have with one lower so kids don't have to drip on the way to the upper one. I would come stay here again if I were in the neighborhood.

FANTASTIC STAY!

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved staying here! The Cottage Pool House is so charming and comfortabe view great views of the Auburn countryside from the windows. The pool and hot tub were wonderful and relaxing. The property has a cow, some pigs, goats, and chickens that just added to its charm. The host family was also very nice and made sure we had everything we needed. I would definitely stay here again.

MOST EXCELLENT, COULD NOT GET BETTER....

  • 5 of 5
This getaway was our best ever. Being an outdoor person and loving animals and scenery this was the perfect getaway to relax and enjoy outdoor living. The accommodations were more then anyone would expect and the pool house was decorated beautifully. there was nothing you needed, it was all there. We enjoyed it so much we never left for dinner etc. we wanted to stay there an enjoy the wildlife and beautiful setting it had. Watching the deer in the meadow and goats in the pasture made our stay quite enjoyable. We went wine tasting which was recommended by Bob and Jeannie just down the road and had a wonderful time. They are great hosts and have done such a wonderful job with the property and farmhouse. I think it's something all of us can appreciate that love the outdoors to see the efforts they have put into this lovely property. We will definitely go back more then just once a year....

What a wonderful retreat!

We came to Auburn to visit my husband's family in the area. We invited all of the family for a Sunday barbecue and had plenty of room. Everyone enjoyed the spa and used the shower/bathroom facilities downstairs. We used two out the three barbecues, thank you Jeanne for starting the wood for us, had the fireplace roaring and the olympics on the wide screen TV for the ones interested. We had a delicious dinner looking out onto the beautiful farm with an wonderful garden, chickens, entertaining pigs with adorable piglets that helped make us laugh. Even the canadian geese flying into an out of the pastures added to the enjoyment as well as falling asleep with the frogs serenading us. Some of our local family made the comment that even they "felt like the were no longer in Auburn and on vacation".

When some of us needed a quiet moment we could slip upstairs to our very comfortable accommodations an read by fireside. Highly recommend both units as you have the best of the whole property to yourself.

We will definitely will be back. The Vaughan's were the perfect host and help make our stay most enjoyable. Thank you again an we are looking forward to our next visit.
