PICTURESQUE DELTA COTTAGE NEXT DOOR TO GRAND ISLAND MANSION

Isleton Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, Studio + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-7)

Studio cottage available for vacation rental in the beautiful Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta. Located on Steamboat Slough near Walnut Grove and Courtland, this cozy cottage is perfect for a night's stay after a party at the Grand Island Mansion, right next door (about a quarter-mile away). Also within 5 miles of the Ryde Hotel and a fantastic public boat launch (Hogback Island County Park). A unique sunset awaits every evening.

Dating to the 1920s, the cottage overlooks a cherry orchard among thousands of acres of pears, apples, wine grapes, and other family farms. Nearby to historic Delta towns, award-winning wineries, U-pick farms, boating, paddling, cycling, cruising, fishing, wake-boarding, wind-surfing, hunting, art galleries, and restaurants.

The cottage features comfortable antiques, Douglas fir floors, a full kitchenette, bathroom with shower, balcony deck overlooking the orchard, wisteria-covered patio, and private river access. The owners live on-site in the main farmhouse and share a lushly landscaped, kid-friendly yard with large adventure-play structure. Transportation available to and from the Grand Island Mansion.

Sleeping accommodations are a full-size bed and full-size futon to comfortably sleep 4, plus limited floor area for others. A clean and cozy travel trailer can be available for additional accommodations, plus tent-sleeping may be possible, too.

The kitchen features an oven, 4-burner range, mini-fridge, toaster-oven, microwave, coffee maker, sink, dishes, utensils, and cookware.

On-site kayak and bicycle rental available, featuring 2 tandem kayaks and 2 mountain bikes.

About Marty Elliott

We are a water resources consultant and architectural designer, along with our 3 kids. We were drawn to the California Delta as students at University of California, Davis, moving here in 2001 after restoring an 1882 Victorian in Midtown Sacramento. The Delta is a unique 'working' landscape providing food and water for millions of people while also representing a picturesque treasure-trove of recreation, adventure, fish and wildlife habitat, and other opportunities.

Marty Elliott purchased this cottage in 2001

Why Marty Elliott chose Isleton

While seeking escape from urban life in Sacramento, this little cherry orchard found a special place in our hearts with 360-degree views and an ideal mix of water (with Steamboat Slough across the levee to the west) and land (with vast acres of orchards all around). The guest cottage and main farmhouse date to the 1920s, on the site of an older farmhouse lost in a fire. It is a charming and relaxing rural setting.

What makes this cottage unique

Our friends and guests love to visit because even an afternoon can feel like a vacation due to the peace and tranquility.

Peaceful Cottage

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in the cottage for two beautiful Delta nights. It's a peaceful location outside of town, with a waterway across the street and nature all around. The owners were thoughtful and the place was spotless. I highly recommend it. The Delta has so many interesting towns and places to explore!

wonderful delta getaway...

  • 5 of 5
the cottage was small, but comfortable for our family of 4. the owners were kind enough to have an aerobed all ready for our 2 kids upon our arrival. the photos are true representations of the cottage - it is a cozy, light-filled space, furnished with nice antiques...and the location is ideal for anyone looking for a true delta experience. right on steamboat slough, just a ways down the road from grand island mansion - it is perfectly isolated, peaceful, but close enough to towns and restaurants. we rented the kayak for a day and had a blast! the orchards are lovely to walk through, and with the owner's encouragement, we picked a few apples and pears, which were delicious! chris, his wife, and their kids are very nice and accommodating. for places to eat - giusti's is a delta must, the levee cafe in isleton is simple and honest, and the sunday brunches at both the grand island mansion and the ryde hotel are surreal. the delta is full of adventure, rich california history, and new surprises waiting to be discovered - and time moves super slow - enjoy!
