My wife Jeanne and I met when we were young and have enjoyed a fairy tale romance ever since. We enjoy providing wholesome accommodations and hospitality to others. If you stay in our pool house, you can expect a wonderful time.
We provide farm fresh eggs from our own chickens.
Jeanne Vaughan purchased this house in 2009
It is beautiful, well appointed and we appreciate our guests.
The greatest compliment that most of our guests give is spending time at the pool and pool house instead of running off. Just think of the times when you absolutely loved your accommodations. That is what you will find here.
This really is as good it gets. For anyone (especially a couple) wishing to explore and enjoy the great history of the California gold country, there is no better place to call your home away from home then the Vaughn's Cottage Pool House. It's a spectacular find. The place is immaculate, well furnished -- not with furnishings that one would expect to find in a rental unit -- but the well thought out care that goes into decorating a place for one's family and friends. It's truly a majestic cottage. From the hardwood floors to the granite counter tops to the double-headed two person walk-in shower to the luxurious bathrobes to the gorgeous fresh flowers throughout -- the Vaughns keep in mind every detail that makes a stay special. We were welcomed with a bottle of Mt. Vernon Zinfandel. And Jeannie also brought over fresh buttermilk and her own special pancake and waffle mix (with the fresh eggs). The gourmet kitchen with high end china and cooking utensils produced a sumptuous first morning's breakfast. My husband and I had a super time -- and the Vaughns are pet friendly. We brought our well- behaved black lab -- who enjoyed the expansive property. From waking up to flocks of geese to slipping for a soak in the hot tub to cuddling by the fireplaces -- there are two -- one in the cottage living room and one by the hot tub -- this is a great place. There is even a welcome book that lists top restaurants and things to do in the area. Robert Vaughn's recommendations for Grass Valley and Nevada city were spot-on. And the local French restaurant just down the street -- it doesn't look great from the outside, it's next to a bail's bondsman -- was the best meal we had on our trip -- and there are some really good restaurants up and down route 49. Thank you, thank you! Tom and I had a wonderful respite out of the City -- and we absolutely enjoyed the amazing friendliness of Auburn -- the Vaughns are very much a part of that refreshingly friendly and cordial community.
We love coming to the Auburn Pool House. Every window you look out has a beautiful view.
The property is so welcoming. We love the flowers, the citrus and the farmland around.
It is so fun to look out and see goats, chickens, turkeys and cows.
Inside the home is just perfect for a couple. The kitchen is easy to use, complete with everything you need. One can sit on the outdoor patio for breakfast, lunch and dinner and
love the privacy and the scenery. The hosts are just that: Wonderful Hosts. It is a special place to stay.
We were looking for a cozy, peaceful spot to get away for a few days after the holiday, and this delightful poolhouse was the answer to our prayers! It was a roomy one bedroom apartment, above the poolhouse, equipped with the modern comforts - a wi-fi that met the needs of a wired husband, a kitchen that was thoughtfully stocked with cookware, utensils, nice quality kitchen small appliances, and even a generous selection of kitchen seasonings and staples. The poolhouse was decorated tastefully and welcomingly, and the large fireplace kept the main room toasty warm for enjoying the books & games in the living room cabinets, or even just stretching out on the sofas and chairs for TV watching. Both the bedroom window and the kitchen window overlooked wide open fields, and from our second floor apartment windows (and the large deck outside our front door), we enjoyed the picturesque views. The poolhouse was a stone's throw from the owners' lovely home, and we had an opportunity to have an enjoyable conversation with Bill and Jeanne, the gracious hosts/owners. They're well versed in hospitality and pay attention to even the smallest details to ensure a welcoming experience for their guests. The distance between the main house and poolhouse was far enough for privacy, but near enough in case we had any questions or needs. Our hosts shared recommendations of some of their favorite restaurants in the nearby towns, where we enjoyed stellar dinners! They even brought us a dozen eggs from their own hens, which paired nicely with bacon and toast for breakfast! The property has a pool, hot tub, an outdoor "living room" for guests with a BBQ and pizza oven, outdoor volleyball/badminton court, ping pong table - just enough activities for a relaxing getaway. This place is a treasure - we're already planning a return visit!
This was the 2nd time my family stayed here, and it was just as I remembered it. I can't say enough about the owners and their property~ absolutely wonderful! We stayed at the Pool House which was immaculately kept with all the extras of a resort and comforts of home. This time we didn't venture out and decided to spend the whole time at our little oasis. The owner's children were courteous and even invited my two younger boys to play a pool game with them... they had so much fun! After two nights, we didn't want to leave and will definitely be back again next year.
Great place for a retreat from the daily routine! This property is as beautifully represented in the listing. It exceeded all our expectations which is in large part due to the hosts who are fantastic! At first I thought it might feel a bit odd vacationing in someone's backyard pool house, but from our arrival to departure it felt like we practically had the place to ourselves. They were friendly and attentive to our needs during our stay but never in our business. They opened up the full use of their beautiful property, pool, game room, pool house and the grounds to us during our stay. And further when our oldest son managed to forget to repack several items he brought on vacation with us, they were more understanding than I would have been and took the time to package it all up nicely and ship it to us.
The property is conveniently located on the edge of town which makes it feel like you are in the middle of country while you are on the property, but you will find all the amenities and conveniences of suburbia just a couple miles away.
We hope to visit the property again for a break from the SF Bay Area and as a great home base to explore the gold country.
We were very comfortable many extras including fresh eggs, organic soaps, lotion ,shampoo and a plug for your electric car. My wife really enjoyed the hot tub and my son enjoyed visiting with the many animals on the farm. Definitely will stay here again when in auburn
We have stayed at the Cottage Pool House numerous times and continue to come back. The views of the pastures, garden, pool and yard are so relaxing you don't want to leave and many times we don't. They spared none on the open floor plan, large bathroom and fully equipped kitchen. There is nothing you will need staying at this beautiful cottage. When the weather is nice, the outdoor covered living area with a large flat screen TV, three BBQ's, ping pong table and comfortable seating makes the definition of OUTDOOR LIVING what it should be. Bob and Jeanne are very gracious and wonderful people. You will not be sorry choosing this place. It's a Gem.....
Swimming, sun bathing, ping-pong, outside fire, and volleyball onsite, Five (5) winery tour within 5 miles, all other activities listed in the "on-site and nearby" are within two hours distance.
