About Krista Crookham

In 2004 our family of 4 (One on the way...) drove into the beautiful town of Graeagle. We drove through this amazing town, had a yummy lunch in Blairsden, visited the local Graeagle Grocery Store for a soda, and stopped at Mill pond for a look (As it was snow covered at the time.) Needless to say it was love at first sight! We found ourselves hours later at a local Real Estate office scanning listings. We drove back to El Dorado Hills, near Sacramento, with nothing but Graeagle on our minds. Two days later my husband and I headed back for another look and found ourselves walking through our property @ 40 Paiute Trail. Even though a renovation was clearly in order, we loved its location and charm even with the pea green carpets that adorned our home. We placed our offer that day! Now 11 years later and 3 children getting busier as years go by, we find it harder and harder to visit our lovely home. We hope you will come and enjoy it as much as our family has!

Krista Crookham purchased this house in 2004

What makes this house unique

We love the fact that we rarely get in our car. The kids ride bikes everywhere. We walk downtown daily, enjoying all that this charming town has to offer. Mill pond is a short walk away. No need for cars here.

Well managed, quiet retreat

  • 4 of 5

Graeagle was our base for exploring the hikes, lakes and rivers in the Lost Sierra for a week. The two car garage provided lots of storage for our gear (car needed to be parked on the driveway). Garage doors were held closed from the inside by metal bits that had to be removed manually. Once we figured those out, not a problem.

Compliments to the concierge, all furniture, bookshelves, cabinets, linens, surfaces, dishes, and equipment were spotless. Very impressive and much appreciated!

The home is very organized, with only a few - unobtrusively framed - hints and reminders on display. Labels on the electric switches were very useful and welcome.

A major reason to choose this home was the look of the kitchen in the pictures. We like to cook our own meals and were not disappointed. Every appliance looked brand new and worked without fail. Lots of choices for pots and pans, and also in great condition. We especially liked the slow cooker! Small wrinkle: chef knives with serrated blades were worn out, but there was also a sharp cleaver and a paring knife.

As stated in the description, no WiFi or internet access. But cell signal is very good, so we got most of what we needed through the phone.

This being early October, nightly lows were near or below freezing. There is a portable electric heater, but we could not get it to work. We relied on the fixed kerosene oven in the living room in the evenings, let the place cool down at night and turned the heater back on in the morning. OK if you like sleeping in a cool bedroom and can wait for an hour until the temperature has come back up in the morning.

Took off one star for the electrical heater and the kitchen knives, but would definitely come back: the place is really well cared for, we loved the big living room with vaulted ceiling and wood fireplace, plenty of storage in the garage, the french doors to the deck and lots of seating options in the back yard to catch a ray of warming sunshine.

Thank you for providing such a great cabin!

Quiet and lovely ....

  • 4 of 5

House is just fine for small family or a few people , well equipped overall. Lovely kitchen and great view off the deck. Very nice location close to town. Directions for the DVR would be helpful and also we could not get the outside grill to work. The deck is not particularly dog friendly however as the dogs can simply walk right off the deck unless leashed - no containment there...I had thought the deck area would be more secure with another board across the bottom so we could sit there with the dogs and not worry- so that will be the reason I do not return to this home. Wildlife is a big temptation for most dogs and I do not take any chances! I love Graeagle and will return however- gorgeous area!

Good location and nicely furnished...but no AC and it is difficult to sleep with the heat.

  • 4 of 5

The location is good and the home is well equipped. The kayak is a nice touch. However, if you are planning to stay during a heat spell in the summer, there is no AC and it gets pretty warm in the house.

Owner's Response: Graeagle is a mountain community, that offers warm days and cool comfortable nights in the summer. I have a framed note in Master Bedroom visible to all guests inviting them to open up windows at night and let the low 50-60 degree mountain air in. I provide heat blocker blinds in the dining area just off the kitchen which offset the afternoon lowering sun and keep the house cooler. Additionally, I provide several fans for additional comfort. To all renters in Graeagle, few (if any) homes in this area offer A/C.

Comfortable home base for hiking in Lakes Basin

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and comfortable, with a large deck for lounging and reading. After years of staying in Sierra City, staying in Graeagle and this house was a nice change of pace.

Great place in a great location

  • 4 of 5

Have been coming to Graeagle for the past 20 years off and on. This is our second time staying in this cabin. It offers all the amenities we look for - comfortable, large deck and close location to tennis courts and the town of Graeagle. The only minor drawback is that it would be nice if we had wi-fi access in the cabin. It is very well kept up and we were very happy with our ten day visit.

Needs some TLC!

  • 3 of 5

We were reserved for 2 weeks and you would think there would be more amenities and ready for our stay. The property needs a lot of attention for rental purposes-too many mention.

Owner's Response: If there is one thing I can say in response to this guests review of our vacation home, it would be; as much as one tries (as I sincerely do) you truly cannot please everyone every time. Unfortunate as that is. Writing a response to a review such as this is not easy, as the pride I take in every guests stay is first and foremost. I reached out to this guest shortly after their arrival checking on their stay. During our conversation they expressed a need for additional bath towels (4-sets were left for their stay) and several more dish towels (several were already in the home provided). It was two guests. I immediately made arrangements to have the housekeeper deliver those additional supplies to them at a time that was most convenient for the guests. When my housekeeper arrived to drop the additional towels off, the husband talked to her about the quality of our Weber gas grill. Although it is not brand new, it is in excellent working order and to date, no complaints. The husband discussed with her that upon their arrival the grill was dirty and needed a thorough wipe down from the prior guests stay. We missed the mark on this detail and I sincerely apologized to the guests after learning of this. Certainly not a detail, as a host , we should have missed. Following every guests stay we burn off the grill, along with wiping it down. Unfortunately, this detail was overlooked. I'm beyond sorry this happened. We should not have missed this. Please note: When this was shared with us the guest had already cleaned the grill. Otherwise, we would have taken care of the situation ASAP. Other than the described details above, I'm lost on a response. Very difficult to respond to a review that doesn't state ones specific issues. Please know, we truly care about every guests experience, and take sincere pride in providing a clean comfortable home for all of our guests to enjoy while exploring Graeagle!
