HISTORIC J. NEELY JOHNSON HOUSE IN DESIREABLE DOWNTOWN NEIGHBORHOOD

Sacramento Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Townhome, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Lovely, unique 1853 home just north of downtown Sacramento in the quiet Alkali Flat residential neighborhood. Only 6 blocks from the State Capitol we are within walking distance to many restaurants, theaters and other attractions like the Crocker Art Museum, Railroad Museum, Old Sacramento, Sacramento Convention Center, and more. Walk to the exciting Midtown area and get a bicycle taxi back.

Our reasonable rates and a lenient refund policy make it convenient to book and guarantee your stay. We look like a B&B but are a vacation rental that rents from overnight stays to up to 45 days.

Leave the car behind! Sacramento Airport (SMF) is 22 miles away and a typical shuttle is $35 each way, groups are less. There's a zip car station three blocks away and bicycle rentals within six blocks. If you bring your car, off-street parking here is free and there is room for an RV or trailer.

So, what is the difference between the J. Neely Johnson House and the Bidwell Mansion, Stanford Mansion and the Governor's Mansion? You can't stay at any of those others! And sadly, due to state budget woes, you may not even be able to visit them in the near future. Today you can stay at this beautiful home for as little as $99 per night.*

Check out our features and amenities. For business or pleasure, we've got everything you need while you are in Sacramento.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the J. Neely Johnson House is Sacramento’s oldest surviving residence having once been the home to several Early California elected officials; the fourth Governor, a State Treasurer and Supreme Court Justice. Restored as it may have been in the late 1890s, we are delighted to share with you a bit of 19th Century Sacramento.

All proceeds from your visits help further the restoration and maintenance of this landmark property. Currently, there are no ADA accommodations, we are planning for access in the near future. All work accomplished in the restoration and rehabilitation is in accordance with or allowed by state and local codes as well as the U.S. Secretary of the Interior Standards for Historic Preservation. This project is a previous grant recipient from the State of California Office of Historic Preservation. All current work is privately funded.

*45 days extended stay.

Retired Architect who worked on preservation and reconstruction of State historical buildings.

Dan Hood purchased this townhome in 1979

Sacramento is a just-right size town with a tremendous mix of people. This property is an extension of my interest and love of period architecture.

The home is a great place for entertaining friends and when not entertaining, fixing something!

Owner was extremely accommodating of our 6 member family. The rooms were beautifully appointed, although we missed having our daughter play the piano (it was being repaired). Great location -- within walking distance of the Cathedral, the Capitol and even Old Sac.

3 of us came for a visit to Sacramento and stayed in this absolute jewel of a house; we each had a beautiful bedroom, and the bathrooms were so great! The house was so
clean and lovely, it was a delight! And it was within walking distance of great restaurants,
cafes, coffee houses, and the Capitol Building. For an exquisite stay, and a walk back in time, I highly recommend this house. Thank you, Dan, for such a joy!

Our family had a wonderful trip back to the 1850's! We were studying California history and stayed in the J. Neely Johnson house during our Sacramento visit. The home was very comfortable and clean. For a homeschool family it was the perfect place to stay while visiting Sutter's Fort, the Railroad Museum, and the state capitol. Because of the rain we drove everywhere but the location was great! Thank You!

What's not to like? Great location. Beautiful place. Owner is extremely helpful. Everything worked great despite the age. No creaking floors or rickety railings despite being 125+ years old.

I stayed here recently with my wife and my parents and we all greatly enjoyed our stay here. It was a truly unique experience and it definitely beats staying at a hotel or a motel. I would definitely recommend this property to stay at.
