About Jeanne Vaughan

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

Why Jeanne Vaughan chose California

It is beautiful, well appointed and we appreciate our guests.

What makes this house unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

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.

A RETREAT we keep returning to....

  • 5 of 5

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.....

One of our FAVORITES!!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely treasured our time at the Poolside Cottage. It was a haven of rest after traveling for almost 3 weeks. The open, airy floor plan, and the luxurious decor, from the well-equipped kitchen to the beautiful 2-headed, giant shower was so delightful for us.

The views out of all the windows, especially during the heat, when we needed to stay inside more, was so refreshing in an air-conditioned, roomy accommodation. Even a washer and dryer, which we desperately needed by then. Thank you so much Bob and Jeanne. We appreciate what you have to share with others!

We look so forward to our next visit!

Amazing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband ran the Way To Cool Ultra 50k this past weekend, and we stayed at the poolhouse for 2 nights. It is the most beautiful property and we wish we could have stayed longer! The house is impeccably decorated with top of the line appliances- everything you could need is there. The spa was heavenly and my 10 year old son enjoyed ping pong and badminton in the sun. Our host was friendly and accommodating- letting my son visit the cow, pigs and chickens, as well as some fun time with one of their beautiful Collies. We will definitely be back!
