TURN OF THE CENTURY RANCH-PERFECT FOR A GREAT GET AWAY

Auburn House Rental Photos and Description

6 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms + detach cottage (Total sleeps 12)

Amidst the rolling hills and dramatic Sierra Foothills, this spacious turn-of-the-century 4,100 sq ft home on five rustic acres is within walking distance from Folsom Lake. Located in Newcastle, California this historical home has a classic veranda with swings and rocking chairs.

Enjoy the working fruit orchard with over 200 trees with multiple varieties of almond, apple, apricot, cherry, grapefruit, lemon, lime, nectarine, orange, peach, pear, persimmon, plum and tangerine.

Enjoy as well the refreshing swimming pool with outdoor shower, tennis court, basketball court, ping pong table, tetherball, horseshoes, cornhole and plenty of bicycles. There's a separate pool house with pool toys, his/her changing areas and a bathroom.

The property sleeps 11-12 comfortably (4 bedrooms in the main house and a guest cottage). The air-conditioned home is decorated in a charming European style with plenty of comfortable reading nooks and quiet spaces along with five fireplaces (non-working). Enjoy the billiard room complete with vintage pool table and plenty of kid's games. Bike to downtown Folsom or old town Auburn and experience gold rush history along with fine dining, antique shops and boutiques. Nearby, there are horse stables, riding trails, wineries, golf courses, whitewater rafting, water-skiing, canoeing, fishing, camping and kayaking . We also have a new standing paddle board that is perfect for Folsom Lake. Tahoe ski resorts are an easy drive. A caretaker couple live on the property.

Our family and siblings lives in Southern & Northern California. We have been coming to 'The Ranch' since we were kids and my father came when he was little. Once you have experienced the rustic charm, you will see how special the place is and will want to come back again. The ranch is a place where time stops. It's like stepping into a Norman Rockwell painting.

This home was passed down from our grandfather and has been in our family for four generations. It has some amazing memories and is a great place to relax and get away from the busy activities of daily life. Much of the furniture is over 100 years old and the home has a timeless elegance. It is only a couple hours from San Francisco and Lake Tahoe so is centrally located.

In the main house we have four bedrooms, three bathrooms ; the Master bedroom has a King bed and the other three bedrooms have one set of twin beds each for a total of seven beds. Two of the bedrooms are adjoining and share a bath, the Master and the back bedrooms have their own full bath.

We have five adult sleeping bags, four child’s sleeping bags and two full size air mattresses, two twin air mattresses plus blankets and pillows for everything.

The bungalow, or 'Honeymoon Cottage' as it’s called, has a bedroom with a king size bed and a sitting room with two pull-out sofas with a single bed in each. It has a small bathroom with shower but no kitchen.

The area has beautiful rolling hills for running or biking. There are a few golf courses close by and you are 10 minutes from Folsom Lake.

We have a full regulation tennis court, with an informal half basketball court, ping pong table and horseshoe pit. We have regulation horseshoes and plastic ones for the kids. If you are serious about tennis or table tennis, you may want to bring your personal rackets or paddles, although we do have older ones.

The large swimming pool has a ‘springy’ diving board and is sparkling clean and inviting. We have pool towels, a blow-up toddler pool for the little ones, some pool toys and floats, including some child friendly flotation devices but you may want to bring any favorite water toys and plenty of sun screen lotion.

We have a number of other things here you may enjoy including everyone’s favorite, the orchard, which has nearly every variety of fruit available; all kinds of citrus as well as many varieties of almond, apple, apricot, cherry, grapefruit, lemon, lime, nectarine, orange, peach, pear, persimmon, plum, tangerine and more! While here, you'll never have to buy fruit at the store. You and your family can pick your own fresh fruit off the tree. You can even take a box home with you. In the summer, you can pick fresh blackberries to your heart's delight. Perfect for blackberry pie. Folsom Lake is only a few minutes from the Ranch and you can rent horses and boats. We can help with that and there are a number of interesting local attractions, restaurants etc. we can recommend.

Note we do not do any weddings or large events.

a perfect ranch for family reunion

  • 5 of 5
less than an hour away from Sacramento but a world apart ... beautifully furnished home with tons of history and antique furnishings. Billiard room was the highlight of our family gathering as it was too cold to swim the time we were there. Plenty of Satsuma mandarins to feed our vitamin C needs. Lots of room for dogs to wander around. The front porch was a delightful place to sit and chat any time of day. Lovely wood-paneled dining room adjacent to well-stocked kitchen provided a stately gathering hall for everyone to check in at the beginning and at the end of day. Owner and caretaker are great to work with.

Perfect home for our corporate retreat

  • 5 of 5
The ranch was huge, with unique and beautiful rooms and a myriad of activities. At any given time, we were playing tennis or shooting hoops or riding bikes or playing table tennis or shooting pool or swimming or just sitting around in one of the living rooms or outside on the porch chatting. The owner was so helpful and we had a really great time. Highly recommend this spot for a weekend away with friends, family, or co-workers.

Fabulous Vintage Home

  • 5 of 5
We were most impressed by this property. The caretaker, Teri, met us at arrival and showed us around the home. The house was far more spacious than we expected, plenty of room for our family of 11 to stretch out. Everything in perfect working order and a huge variety of cooking utensils -- including popcorn poppers! We played badminton, pool, ping pong, tennis, did puzzles and ate some wonderful meals around the huge dining room table. Too cold to swim -- but we'll save that for the next visit! The orchard provided grapefruit, tangerines and pomegranates. We were well entertained (from ages 3 to 69) and never had to leave the property. We couldn't have been happier. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Yearly Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5
Our family ranged in age from 4yrs to 83 yrs of age. Everyone loved the pool. The front yard has a swing that was enjoyed by the younger children. The barbeque is out front so while your cooking you can enjoy visiting with those sitting on the porch. We've been renting a house every year for the past 12 years. We will definitely come back. You feel like you are all alone. The fruit in the orchard was great. The caretakers of the house are there if you need them and very friendly.

FUN IN THE SUN !

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a wonderful stay at Green Hill Ranch. The pool (thanks for the poolside toilet !!) was used about 5 hours a day and the next most used amenity was the pool room. Everything was as good as it looked on the website. I love that you have kept all the antiques and collectables around for us to enjoy. The fresh peaches were deeelicious and fun for the city slickers to pick every morning.
We hope to be back and will definitely tell our friends to check it out.

Beautiful stay at the Ranch!

  • 5 of 5
Seeking a change from the standard hotels in the Sacramento area, we opted to stay at this beautiful estate during a recent business trip. The Ranch comfortably housed all 10 of us (and as the lone female, I even got my own cottage!)

We had the most wonderful week at Anthony's beautiful home. It was a tranquil escape from our busy days. Can't wait to come back in the summer. It was great to have the caretakers onsite in case we had questions or wanted to borrow binoculars :) This is an awesome location for kids, with tons of outdoor activities, pool, tennis court, orchard, the works. And you won't believe the stars at night...
