About Bob Vaughan

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

Why Bob Vaughan chose Auburn

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

What makes this house unique

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.

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.

Stunning pool, friendly hosts.

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the pool house for three nights and had the most wonderful time. The pool area is beautiful, with everything you could possibly want - loungers, shower room, eating area, BBQ, ping pong table - that you are likely to use the pool house itself just to sleep in. The entire property is beautifully appointed and tastefully furnished. The hosts are very friendly and accommodating - we were visiting family in the area who we invited over to take advantage of the pool - and the fresh eggs and vegetables from the farm were wonderful. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property, the only note I'd make is that if you are planning to spend a lot of time indoors (and why would you?), living arrangements might be a little cramped for four adults.

Exceded Our Expectations!

  • 5 of 5
During a mid-summer heat wave where temps were in the 100's, our family found an ideal place to relax and cool off in the foothills around Auburn, CA. The pool house was exactly as described in the ad, and so much more. Everything about the rental, from the linens, to china to the pool and exterior were well maintained and high quality. You could tell the owners had created a space that they themselves would be very comfortable staying in - something that is hard to find in a vacation rental.

From our arriving through our departure, we were made to feel at home and even though the owners live adjacent to the pool house, we felt at times as if we had the property all to ourself. This was the perfect spot for our family to enjoy the sun & warmth (we're from Washington). Close enough to town and a shopping area, but secluded enough from the noise and bustle of nearby I-80. Close to downtown Sacramento or a beautiful drive up to Tahoe, the location was perfect.

This gem of a rental was a real find and one we intend on returning to whenever visiting family and friends in Northern California.

Beautiful! Peaceful and Full of Amenities!

  • 5 of 5
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.
