Renovated guesthouse on 20 acres in the gold country. 1900 feet elevation. 20 to 30 minute hike to the Consumnes River, with beaches and swimming.

Great sunrises, sunsets and stars. Mountain biking available. Rock outcroppings for climbers.

The kitchen has a vintage stove with four burners and two ovens, microwave, toaster oven, and sink.  You will also have easy access to a full size refrigerator. About half of the fridge will be empty for your use.  Outside is a large propane bbq with two side burners for your use.

There is no wifi, but Verizon and At&t get good reception.  We use our phones for internet and streaming.  There is a large 50 inch TV and dvd player along with an Amazon firestick if you can stream from your phone.  

We have goats, and a  sheep,  if you would like to feed or interact with.

My wife and I live on the property in a house about 200 feet away. You will have as much privacy/interaction as you desire.  Our garage/workshop is attached to the guesthouse,  so I may need to access it occasionally during your stay. 

We do have two dogs on the property. The Australian healer/cattle dog is very friendly. The Anatolian shepherd is a watch dog so he will bark at you upon arrival and then settle down and leave you alone. You may hear him barking at night at any moving wildlife (deer, fox, wild turkey, etc.).

There are two cats living in the attic of the guesthouse, which may or may not bother you if you have cat allergies. My wife has cat allergies and the cats don't bother her. 

The last 4.5 miles of the drive to the property is on a winding road.  The last .5 mile is unpaved with a few potholes.  Please drive carefully.

The land and views were spectacular. The house was quite cozy, yet spacious. There was walking access to the river, which was quite beautiful. Overall the setting offered a serene experience. The host was very friendly and helpful and the goats and sheep were fun to engage with. The doggos were adorable, but could learn some manners yet around excessive barking on occasion. We enjoyed ourselves immensely and would recommend this house as a lovely place to stay.

Thank you Ric for a perfect end of summer getaway. It was just the right mix of laziness and a bit of exercise hiking back from the river. We felt right at home and enjoyed the animals as well.

Ric G.s Land was beautiful, well kept and very private. Ric was very hospitable and generous. The animals kept our kids entertained and the adults loved them as well. We had a fantastic weekend!! We can’t wait to go back!!
