We have owned our 20 acre ranch for 8 years. We enjoy the peace and quiet and beautiful views surrounded by oak trees. We love hiking down to the river. Very private; seldom do you come across other people. Plymouth wine country is a 30 minute drive if you're interested. Amador brewing, Solid Ground brewing and the world famous Poor Reds are about 30 minutes away. Learn more about this land: Renovated guesthouse on 20 acres in the gold country. 1900 feet elevation. 30 minute hike to the Consumnes River, with beaches and swimming. Great sunrises, sunsets and stars. Mountain biking available. Rock outcroppings for climbers. About a 30 minute drive to numerous wineries and the foothill towns of Plymouth and Placerville. 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 one bedroom with a full bed and in the living room is a trundle bed that converts to two twins. We have installed hardwood laminate flooring throughout guesthouse; some of the pictures show the prior cement floor. 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. Bring your own hardware/cords if you want to stream from your phone.   We have goats  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 also travel so you may have the property to yourself. 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.

Wonderful trip for my family !
Thank you Ric for giving us a lot of info before we came to his wonderful guest house. My kids and my wife enjoyed so much with his dogs and goats. The guest house is very stylish and tidy. I was so relaxing and watching my kids with the goats. The guest house have almost everything for us in the guest house. Everything is wonderful. The view…the people…the animals…I am sure that we will be back again! Highly recommend to everyone!

Serene with stunning views.
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.

Blissfully quiet
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.

Beautiful Cabin In The Woods
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!!
