Overview

About the property

Comfortable house with 4 bedrooms with lots of privacy

This comfortable house in the woods has an open floor plan with a large farm kitchen. There are 4 bedrooms with a king, 2 queen and 1 single bed. The creek is just outside your door to wade and explore the riparian habitat. There is a workshop 200 ft away that I sometimes use so we could meet while you are here. There is a tree deck that has become a main attraction and everyone seems to enjoy the sound of the creek and the lush forest surrounding you. My art and book collection, antiques and eclectic style offer an informal and relaxing atmosphere.

Centrally located in Northern California near the Napa Wine Country and 7 miles to the nearest town of Vacaville. Historic Winters is 25 miles away and Lake Berryessa is nearby for boating enthusiasts. Lake Solano is just a 10 minute drive where you can picnic, swim and go rowing.

About Eleanor MacMakin

I am one of life's travelers, curious and open to new ideas. I love this quiet spot on earth and have worked hard to create a sustainable lifestyle in harmony with nature. I just got a roster to grow my flock. Permaculture practices are necessary to sustain the ecosystem and if I want to grow plants I need manure. I black out the roster's space so he does not crow during the night. I cutup fresh vegetables and fruits and feed only the best natural grains to my flock.

Eleanor MacMakin purchased this house in 1985

Why Eleanor MacMakin chose Vacaville

My grandmother bought this property because she was born and raised here in the early 1900's. My mother passed it on to me when I was raising my daughter. I have made extensive improvements to both homes and the property itself.

What makes this house unique

The property is situated on the headwaters of Ulatis creek so the seasons bring variety in the rise and fall of the water level. The swimming hole in June is really fantastic (except in drought years). The house has old world charm with it's original structure as a schoolhouse in the early 1900's.

Creekside Sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

Im so happy we decided to stay at this beautiful sanctuary! Everything about this home was perfect, from the drive to the house through the hills of Vacaville to the creek right outside your door. This place is incredibly comfortable and warm with the wood burning stove to keep you toasty though the night! Thank you Eleanor for being such a great host and allowing us to use your home.

Amazing Place! Could Not Be More Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the home, all 8 of us, and it was a perfect refuge. You can hear the babbling brook as you lay down in your bed. We cooked meals, hung out and talked, and got a lot of rest. This place has a lot of charm and was just what we city-dwellers needed.

Great cabin. Kids loved exploring around the property.

  • 4 of 5

The creek was flowing which made for a refreshing dip when it was hot.

Can wait to return.
