About Aaron or Lynn
We have both lived in Central California since the 1970's. Originally, we came to the area to attend nearby Universities --- Aaron attending the University of California at Santa Cruz, and Lynn attending the Monterey Institute of International Studies in Monterey. Aaron is from Southern California (a "SoCal Refugee" is what he calls himself), while Lynn is a native of New York City ('nuf said!). We met in Monterey in the mid-nineties and have been together since. Aaron is retired from Federal Government service, where he worked for 25 years on marine fisheries, conservation, and reserves. Lynn is retired from the international import/export/retail business. Both of us are well traveled, and understand the needs and wishes of travelers. Aaron has lived in Asia and Africa for a total of about five years, besides traveling throughout most of the rest of the world. For twenty years, Lynn was a international buyer for a large import company in San Francisco. While in that position, Lynn specialized in South Asian and Eastern European imports, traveling extensively throughout those areas. We continue to travel as often as we can, and spend a lot of time at the small cabin we own in a coastal forest of Costa Rica. At a B&B we once stayed at in northern California, the proprietor told us that running a B&B was like, "traveling the world without going anywhere." Traveling the world was, for her, really just about meeting new people. She said that running a B&B was currently her preferred way to travel the world. In our retirement, we thought we would see what it was like to "travel the world without going anywhere!" We look forward to meeting you and making you feel at-home in our-home. Lynn and Aaron

Winterfell is great
Gorgeous location and the owners are friendly and very helpful. Everything you need for a wonderful stay in the Redwoods.
I recommend highly. They are very nice people, and that bed is crazy comfortable. Lots of little extras too.
My husband and I absolutely LOVED our stay here. The location was perfect for our visit to Big Trees & all the nearby wineries. The unit was very clean, cozy, well stocked, and just as described. We have stayed in dozens of home shares in over 15 countries and this was the MOST hospitable and thoughtful one we've ever experienced! There is nothing we could have asked for that wasn't already provided, plus things for us to enjoy in the pantry & fridge that we didn't even know we needed! We only had the pleasure of meeting Aaron but he was very kind & welcoming, check-in/out was a breeze, and we instantly felt at home. We would definitely stay here again, and recommend it to any couple or small family visiting Calaveras.
Home away from home
We loved this place! It’s welcoming and feels like home. It was perfect for our getaway to the mountains and we will stay again!
We had to cancel last minute, however they were very friendly and helpful.
