Peaceful retreat perfect for socializing

  • 5 of 5

This home was a perfect venue for our annual women's retreat. The house is beautiful and has plenty of spaces for small groups to spread out. One group could be in the game room watching tv, another could be in the living room playing games by the fireplace, another could be in the informal dining area sitting around the table, another could be at the table in the front dining room, and so on. Even in January the backyard was a wonderful space to sit and enjoy nature and the sounds of the fountain (and the backyard too has several distinct areas for smaller groups -- or individuals who need some quiet time -- to sit). The house is at the end of a quiet street and is very secluded.

We had a group of six staying at the house and we invited more friends over to socialize in the afternoon and evening. There was plenty of parking on the property, enough for 10+ cars if some don't mind being parked in. There is an excellent choice of restaurants nearby, and we had our Saturday night meal catered by Carmelita's -- highly recommended!

The owner was very responsive and attentive, so I was able to get answers to any questions we had before and during our stay. We would love to come back.

Beautiful Fair Oaks Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful spacious home in a great location. It was the perfect location for a small family reunion. We were a party of 5 adults and two small kids, and local family was easily able to join in the fun daily. We enjoyed all aspects of this rental. The home and grounds are even more beautiful then described. The rooms are very spacious, the kitchen is well equipped, and the home is very clean. We enjoyed strolls through the beautiful backyard, where we had deer visit in the mornings. We were also able to walk to the little downtown area where we visited great shops and food. Yoshi is very friendly and welcoming. He was very responsive to any/all questions. My family truly enjoyed our stay and we cannot wait for our next visit. I highly recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a quiet, peaceful and beautiful getaway.

Fair Oaks Beauty

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful home and grounds, the house is clean and functional and the grounds are beautiful. There are 3 good sized bedrooms with a queen bed in each which works well for 3 couples but if you are taking children or there are more than that the sleeping arrangements won't work. We took 3 aerobeds and put all the kids on the floor in the "office" which worked out really well for us. We also took linens and blankets for the beds and it was good that we did because there weren't any extra blankets available. The house itself has lots of space and the kitchen area is furnished well with dishes and glasses etc. Having breakfast in the morning watching the animals come in the yard was wonderful. We saw wild turkeys, deer and lots of squirrels. The only other item that would be helpful is an additional TV in the living room, there is one in the entertainment room but one in the living room as well would be nice so you don't disturb people in the two bedrooms near that room. The master bedroom is beautiful and large and the bathroom connected to it is huge, with a very nice shower and jetted tub. The only other thing the master suite could use would be a clock for people catching flights in the morning. I would definitely recommend this house with the explanation about the sleeping arrangements.[]]]

Picture perfect weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a picture perfect weekend getaway stayed at beautiful home in Fair Oaks with our friends and family of 12. This home was exactly what we were looking for! It was clean and well-maintained in a very quiet neighborhood, very close to grocery stores, restaurants, river, and parks. We thought this home looks good on pictures, but it was even more amazing in person - large luxurious kitchen, 2 large living rooms, and 3 bedrooms, including a gorgeous master bedroom with beautiful Jacuzzi tub and separate shower. There was plenty of space for everyone, and we really enjoyed the pool table.

Yoshi, the owner, was very responsive and helpful, welcoming us and explaining the details of the property. We definitely would like to be back to stay in this home again, and highly recommend this home to anyone.

Lumber Mill House - Thanksgiving weekend 2015

  • 3 of 5

This property is unique in many different wonderful and completely frustrating ways. As listed on the VRBO/HomeAway site this property is fabulous: location/location/location! Its architecture is beautiful, the setting is park-like and serene, and there is plenty of room for a large family group to stay together under one roof. It was the perfect place for our family of 6 adults to stay over a holiday weekend. We were very happy with our choice and would consider a repeat stay. For these reasons:5 stars.

That said, there is something very strange about the property. It is poorly kept just to minimal standards of cleanliness and lacking care so that some necessary maintenance items verge on being hazardous to renters. We had to have them bring in a smoke detector. One toilet feels like it is going to

fall apart as you sit. The lighting is not marked so it is difficult in such a large home with many steps to find the correct switch when needed. Some furniture feels like it will fall apart if you touch it the wrong way. The linens are poor quality and minimal. Towels are small, thin and worn. No top sheets, no extra blankets or pillows. The mattresses were okay but were covered in plastic so very noisy to sleep on. The kitchen is bare of even basics. The kitchen feels like it is used for catering only. Not enough silverware for 8. The dishes that were in the hutch in the eating area were the ones they told us to use but when we pulled them out they were filthy and we ditched that plan for paper plates (that we brought). We had considered cooking our Thanksgiving meal at this house with other family members from Sacramento but after trying to make a regular lunch there with difficulty we scratched that plan. For all of these maintenance/comfort reasons: 1 star.

I really don't know how to rate this property overall. If it weren't so expensive I could probably overlook the negatives a little more easily. If maintenance and comfort items are not attended to soon this property is going to become a total disaster. On the other hand, if someone with an eye for detail puts in some serious elbow grease, TLC, and money, well, then it's a different story. A conundrum on how to rate this property. Let the renter beware. Again, we would consider a repeat stay.
