About Charles Coburn
I am an avid amateur astronomer and astrophographer. My wife and I purshased this home with the intention of building a permanent observatory on the site as our personal retreat. Once built the observatory can be operated locally or remotely from our home about an hour north of here in Rescue, CA. I am also a lead docent at the Community Observatory in Placerville. If you would like, we can add on a stargazing package to your rental where I come show you the wonders of the Universe or even allow you to use my telescope to make a few astrophotos of your own! (Extra fees apply)
Charles Coburn purchased this Lodge in 2018
Why Charles Coburn chose Pioneer
The home is very comfortable, spacious and has gorgeous views. The scenery is ever-changing with the time of day and seasons. The large windows overlooking the canyon make a serene backdrop for your special get-away. And the nights, well as an astronomer I can tell you I was astonished that the skies could be this good and not be hours and hours drive from the nearest stores etc. This place is within a short drive of many wonderful sites, such as the Chaw Se Indian Grinding Rocks, Black Chasm Caverns, and the Shennandoah Valley Wine country. And just up the hill is world class skiing at Kirkwood Resort. Calaveras County is just across the Canyon, there are more caverns and the giant sequoia trees of the Calaveras Big Trees State Park a little over an hour drive through beautiful scenery..
