Auburn Estate Rental Photos and Description

Luxury Horse Property in the Sierra Foothills

Words will escape you when you drive through the entrance of this breathtaking property. This beautiful 20 acre estate is unlike anything you will find in the sierra foothills or even the state of California. Custom home built in a New England style begs enjoyment and relaxation. Enjoy sitting on the covered porch overlooking a pristine landscaped pond and listen to fits of laughter as your friends and family jump from the dock and splash around in the crisp water. Relax in the garden with a good book or get some exercise on a hike or a bike ride and catch a glimpse of the Bear River. Stop and nuzzle velvety noses along the way (this is a horse property) or pick a few blackberries and bake a pie in a beautiful cook's kitchen. Get the competitive juices flowing with a game of croquet on the manicured back lawn or head to the horseshoe pit. Unwind by the fire or hot tub and feel as if you were transported to a spa. Take an ultra refreshing outdoor shower and you won’t be disappointed!

Feeling Adventurous? Try wine tasting at Mount Vernon Winery or visit historic Old Town Auburn Nevada City or Lake Tahoe. Breathtaking hikes and top notch skiing is a mere hour drive on Interstate 80. Fabulous golf courses abound in every direction. Pets welcome here but it should be noted that they may never want to leave. First time on the market so come and have a look for yourself and start making your plans!

About Megan DeWeerdt

No matter how far up in the corporate ladder you get, you are still reporting to someone! I retired from 'corporate restructuring ' in 1996 at the age of 52. I wanted, for once, to do build something I could say 'I did it my way.' It has taken 16 years of complete joy to build this serene and private ranch. I felt it was time to share it and my horses, dogs and mini donkeys with others that seek this private and quiet vacation. Horses enrich my life and I hope they do yours when you are here. I promise a unique experience. You won't want to leave!

Megan DeWeerdt purchased this estate in 1999

Why Megan DeWeerdt chose Auburn

A Great Weekend!

  • 5 of 5
The property was amazing, very spacious, and offered several activities for us to partake in. We really enjoyed the on-site pond and the small boats that came with it. The property itself is standalone and surrounded by trees and open land, giving it a nice, secluded feel.

The owner was very friendly and made extra effort to make sure our stay was enjoyable. Having ice water in a cooler ready for us while we were relaxing by the lake after we returned from a long hike really made our day. We enjoyed stopping by his house during the night to talk about potential hiking trails, the area around us, and the animals on the property.

Overall, we had a great time and would definitely recommend this place for casual weekend getaways.

Exceeded all our expectations

  • 5 of 5
Our family has been doing these trips for many years now, by far the nicest home we've encountered. Access is very close to town, yet e large property feels isolated, safe, and secure. The home is beautiful, clean, family and pet friendly. We made early arrangements for 10 adults and 8 kids for a total of 18 people. With a couple of blow up mattresses for the kids we had no problem fitting our group. Don't be turned off by the swimming pond, it was large and clean, very well maintained, we were skeptical from the pictures, but upon arrival it was clear we had nothing to fear. We had 3 dogs with us that didn't want to leave either.

The owner and his daughter were great, accommodating to our requests and questions. Donkeys, horses and dogs were very friendly and a bonus for the kids. The attention to detail was amazing, flashlights by the front door for night walks, ice water at the 'beach' at the swimming pond, lounge chairs and benches strategically set up in various locations in the shade overlooking the daily activities in the pond.

We had a great time and rarely left the property during our short stay. Thank you, we will definitely be back!

Our daughter's dream wedding

Our daughter's dream wedding
  • 5 of 5
Well we were fortunate enough to be able to book this site for our daughter's wedding. "What a beautiful location!" was echoed by all the guests. Our daughter's comment was, "It was my pinterest board come to life!" Besides a breathtaking backdrop for the ceremony the location offered various opportunities for guests to mingle, relax and celebrate the day with the young couple.

A Heavenly Escape

  • 5 of 5
We decided on a Tuesday to leave for vacation on the following Sunday, with no plan other then we wanted to go somewhere within driving distance. I searched VRBO for two days and finally came across the listing for Cape Cod in California. I had never heard of Auburn, and the pictures looked too good to be true, but after a few emails back and forth with Megan I was convinced!

This house was all that we had hoped for and much, much more!

Megan went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable, even offering to drop off some essentials like milk and bread if we were going to arrive late.

I had read the entire VRBO listing and all the reviews, and even though every one of them was glowing, there were a few things I was nervous about.

Number one, I am not much of an outdoorsy person. I am pretty much a high-maintenance, 5-star resort kind of gal. I was nervous about swimming in a lake and worried that it would gross me out. The truth is that the lake is absolutely lovely. It's clean and the perfect temperature, and an amazing place to lay on a raft and relax! There are fish, and my son and his friend even caught some, but I didn't even think about it while I was enjoying the water.

Second, I was a little apprehensive about having the owner living on the property and thought that might be awkward. Quite the contrary! Dan was a wonderful host, gave us plenty of privacy, and provided everything we could need and more! His house is way on the other side of the property... further away than most next door neighbors. I actually would have liked to have spent more time with Dan... next time we come we'll have to cook him dinner. He's the kind of guy that I could sit and listen to him tell us his life stories all day long. And he was so kind to our kids and just really made us feel right at home!

Finally, there weren't that many pics of the inside of the house, so I wasn't sure what to expect from the other bedrooms and bathrooms. But the whole house is simply lovely!

No doubt we will be coming back, and I have a feeling this will be a vacation spot we will return to year after year! Such a wonderful place to make great family memories. Next time we come we will be bringing family and friends with us, as it is a great spot for a group getaway.

Thank you so much Dan and Megan for sharing your little piece of heaven!

Paradise

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed here over the 4th of July holiday week and every one of us loved it! The house, the pond (we swam and fished to our hearts content), and the property couldn't have been more perfect. Megan was responsive and quick to answer any questions we had and Dan (lives on the property) was so sweet and helpful - even bringing my mother and grandmother flowers. We can't wait to return to this paradise next year!

Perfect Weekend

  • 5 of 5
Cap Cod in California was a perfect weekend getaway. We (11 of us) traveled here from SF over Memorial Weekend. Everything was perfect - from the huge and beautiful house to the pond (meant for swimming) to the little beach with chairs to the amazing landscape to the donkeys and horses - which we could feed and pet!

Megan was fast, responsive and easy to communicate with in emails and Dan (who lives on the property) was such a pleasure to meet and talk with and was so helpful. We are already planning our next trip there - we can't stop talking about it! Overall a totally amazing trip.

Thank you Megan and Dan!

This is a special and private retreat yet very close to all kinds of recreation that the Lake Tahoe area has to offer. Plenty of fun to be had in Nevada City, Grass Valley and locally in Auburn. Swimming, horseback riding, mountain biking....it's all here to enjoy
