About Owner / Property Manager
Thank you for allowing us to share in the making of wonderful memories! This property is an excellent choice, we sincerely wish you a very pleasant stay. We are friendly and approachable so please do not hesitate to let us know if you need anything special or want information on things to do or places to see! We are happy to help!
Why Owner / Property Manager chose Foresthill
This property was purchased and passed down to me by my parents, so it has sentimental history attached. The reason why they chose this parcel was because of the various species of older trees on this 3 acres of privacy. I remember being 8 years old coming here in the 60's they pondered their plans for it. Unfortunately their plan did not come to fruition, but ours did! My husband and I built this home in 1997 to raise our family. You'll feel a million miles away from civilization here but in actuality, you're less than 2 miles from town and popular venues in Foresthill.
What makes this House unique
Our home is very clean and comfortable, and has a warm atmosphere. We've had countless happy times here and sincerely wish for you to enjoy it as much as we have! The bedrooms are pretty large, bright and unique. As you step outside, again, wonderful spaces to enjoy. Refresh yourselves in the summer months by swimming morning laps in our pool after a nice cup of coffee on the back deck. Evenings are equally as beautiful under a blanket of stars with silhouettes of large trees towering the perimeter. Quiet and private.

Anna Maria was so nice, accommodating, and helpful. We loved the house, the location, and the pool. We hope to make it back soon!
Thank you Donald, for this lovely review. We enjoyed hosting you and your family and welcome you back anytime. Hope to see you soon!
Perfect weekend getaway
Beautifully kept home, very clean, everything you need to stay there (including sufficient cooking needs, seasoning, condiments, etc). I have now stayed here multiple times and my favorite part of the house aside from the quiet location is the sectional sofa for relaxing with friends and napping! Owners are always responsive, location is close enough to conveniences you need but far enough away to be quiet and relaxing weekend. Pool is a perk after long days on the trails (running, biking, hiking).
Beautiful house in a quaint setting!
The house was beautiful, cozy and very welcoming. It is very evident that the Owners take great pride in their house and provide great hospitality to accommodate guests. I would highly recommend this property to families or friends who are looking for a quaint mountain setting in a great location.
Thank you for taking the time to post your experience! Julie and her guests were a joy to host as they were extremely respectful of our home and left it in immaculate condition upon departure. It is always our hope that our guests feel at home throughout their stay. Julie and her guests will always be welcome and we hope they come to stay again in the future. Thanks for everything Julie! xo
Inviting, warm, and comfortable!
We recently enjoyed a very pleasurable stay at A Foresthill Retreat. It was a wonderful location surrounded by trees and peace and quiet. A great way to spend a weekend away from the City and all its commotion! We had all the comforts of home and our host even left us a bottle of wine to enjoy (which we did)! The place was very clean and spacious and provided all the accommodations anyone would need. Thank you, Anna Maria, for sharing your property with us and for providing a great getaway weekend!
Thank you for taking the time to post a beautiful review! I would like to add that you and your family were more than a pleasure to host! What I appreciated most was that you enjoyed our home, were respectful beyond expectation, and were thoughtful in leaving us a little gift! I sincerely hope you will consider staying again should the occasion arise, it would be our honor to go all out to make you and yours comfortable! Thank you again for a lovely experience! xo
Amazing home with a beautiful pool to relax at!
Me and some friends stayed at this lovely home, while attending a wedding nearby. It was a great place to relax, bbq and enjoy the sun by the pool. We were welcomed with a bottle of wine and fresh fruit which was a great touch!
Thank you Trish for your lovely comments. You and your guests are always welcome here, it has been a pleasure hosting you! Hope to see you again in the future!
We keep coming back
Whenever we are traveling to the area we always stay here, 4th time to date, which says a lot I think. The home is clean, comfortable and relaxing. It has the amenities you need for a nice relaxing trip and close to beautiful outdoors. The owner is extremely responsive for any questions in prep for the your stay or if anything comes up during.
Thanks Kara! As "model guests", you are ALWAYS welcome here and we hope to have the opportunity to host you yet again in the near future!
Close to river rafting, gold panning, local lakes and rivers. Historic area. Auburn (close) has everything from quaint, historic buildings, wonderful restaurants, art galleries, golf courses, anything needed for wonderful experiences. Snow skiing also fairly close in the winter, and cross country/snow family fun right here and more above our town! You most likely will not need a 4 wheel drive vehicle to reach the property.
