About Kathleen Tannous

My husband and I enjoy being outdoors in the country and getting away to the fresh peaceful mountain air. When we were younger, we enjoyed camping, but as we got older we realized we like the feel of being outdoors with the comfort of a bed! My husband planted the gentleman's vineyard on our property to realize his dream of making wine; like his father did in the old country. We feel like our place is 'our little piece of heaven' and enjoy entertaining friends and family.

Kathleen Tannous purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Kathleen Tannous chose Gold Country / High Sierra

We chose this home, not for a vacation rental, but as a mountain retreat for ourselves and our family. We love the area since there is so much to do such as wine tasting, swimming in rivers and lakes, fishing and hiking short trips to Tahoe. Our son snowboards every winter so he and his friends enjoy the closeness of the Ski resorts to get together and have fun. Mostly we have spent our time relaxing and entertaining our friends and family here. We also have a feeling of relaxation and relief when we arrive and cannot wait to return.

What makes this cabin unique

What we most enjoy about our property are the beautiful seasons and dining outside on the large deck while enjoying the broad night sky with all the stars in view. The house is very roomy so it allows our large family to be there without feeling crowded--everyone has their space. The property is on 5 acres with 5 vacant acres next door, so this allows for privacy. I love the fact that rarely do we hear road noise and we can sit in my pajamas on the front deck without a care in the world!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Kathleen and Simon,

We are so happy to have discovered your lovely vacation home. Our days were spent water skiing on Sly Park Lake and hiking the Sierra, and the evenings were peaceful and relaxing as we sat on the deck and watched the deer graze in the yard. The house had everything we needed, and the basket of goodies was a nice touch. Pride in ownership is evident throughout the home and property. We'll be back.

Great getaway. Charming and peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

Loved the Tannous chalet! The living room was a wonderful gathering spot for the family. The bedrooms were comfortable and the kitchen well-appointed; we made most of our meals at the house. My daughter and I sat on the deck every morning to drink coffee and read our books. Very peaceful. A large herd of deer entertained us outside the dining room on our first evening.

The property is a great launching spot for many great wineries. We recommend Miraflores; bring a lunch and enjoy their covered patio. (Free tastings too). If vacationing in early fall, go to Apple Hill. We picked up most of our fresh fruits and veggies there to cook and grill back at the house, and loved walking around the orchards and vineyards. Placerville and Lake Tahoe are also worth a day trip. One of the unexpected pleasures was spending a day at the Consumnes River. It was a hot day and this cooled us down.

One thing to note. You will do a lot of driving of twisting and hilly roads to go anywhere. Even getting to the community pool and clubhouse (great place to spend some time) takes some time.

Country living house

  • 4 of 5

We had a great trip. The house was comfortable. Really wish it was a paved driveway but we managed to get up the driveway. We had our car group there and not the best driveway for show cars, the homemade speed bumps were horrible. Overall stay was nice, neighbors dog barked a lot too. Would stay again but would bring other car. This place would be great in the winter. Thank you!

Great House with a woodsy feel!

  • 4 of 5

Loved the area and the space. Big living room with great view. Only negative sliding doors and some doors a little stiff. Besides that it was great! All beds super comfortable.

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect place for a couple, family, or a family reunion.....this is the third year we have had our reunion here. The Chalet is well appointed with anything you would need, including lots of games. There is also a recreation center with a beautiful pool about three miles down the road.

Great House and Surrounding Area

  • 4 of 5

Love this house and the location. The access to the club house and pool were our favorite parts. This spot is also close to Sly Park and the lake is awesome. My only issues were the lack of wifi. We reserved this house specifically because it was supposed to have wifi, but it went out every 20 minutes. I think they need a new box. The downstairs bathroom is amazing, but the shower head needs to be replaced.

Beautiful property, peaceful, and quiet.

  • 4 of 5

We had an amazing time while staying at this house and would stay there again. House has a lot of space and seating, and is set up more as a four bedroom than a three bedroom. The lot is beautiful and quiet. Our stay was very peaceful and relaxing. We had trouble with the internet, but never contacted the property owner to try and get it fixed. The furniture was dated and the cooktop was slow on boil water even on high. The railing for the deck was a little sketchy, but the deck with multiple seating areas was our favorite in the evening when it cooled off. The air conditioner maintained a comfortable temperature even though it was very hot when we arrived. Not a five star, but a very nice quiet getaway. Would definitely use the property again.
