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.
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.
