This newly renovated home is located on Long Island just off of Grand Island in the Sacramento River Delta. There are 3 queen bedrooms and 2 baths on two levels overlooking the river. In addition, there is a sleeper sofa for overflow for total sleeping space for 8. For the warm summer, an outdoor shower is privately located just under the main deck. Well behaved family pets are welcome, although the yard is not fenced. TV, satellite and wi-fi are available along with hundreds of VHS tapes and DVDs. The house has private docks both on the river and in back on the slough (or the dredge cut as it's known), so boat in or put the boat in the water at one of several nearby launch ramps. Fish off the docks or relax on the covered deck while watching the local skiers and fishermen work the water out front. Wood fire pit and comfortable outdoor furniture allows our guests to fully enjoy the weather at any time of year. There is an office set up in the lower bedroom, just in case you need to keep in touch while you're away.
We bought this house as a fishing shack and to have a berth for our 32' Erickson sailboat and have remodeled extensively in the years since. In fact, we lived in this house while reworking the house next door --where we live today. We are boaters who enjoy all the Delta has to offer and this house puts you so close to the water, you'll never want to leave. At least that was our story and why we moved from Sacramento. We are also active private pilots and involved in Sacramento real estate.
Martha Pearson purchased this house in 1996
Life is just better on the water --and you can't get any closer than this. The view, the immediate access to the water activities we enjoyed were why we chose this place to call home. If you don't do anything but sit and enjoy the view of the river, you'll be entertained by the water skiers and island is qient and charming with really nice neighbors. This kitchen in this house is a dream and stocked well with good quality appliances, dishes and cookware. If you're looking to cook up a few fancy meals while you're with us and wonder about specific items, just ask and we'll see what we can do to accommodate. We always stock the basics but include coffee, tea, spices, foil and plastic wrap as well. There is usually something edible in the yard --the Delta is known for it's lush abundance, and this property is no exception. We encourage our guests to take advantage of what we grow which will obviously change with the seasons.
Being on the water with your own dock means that you can take a quick water ski run, or fish a little then relax a while only to do it again without the hassle of taking the boat in and out of the water. The Delta is beautiful and this location is convenient to the Grand Island Mansion and the Ryde Hotel, both wonderful wedding venues. Isleton is about two miles and Walnut Grove about 10 miles. Delta fishing is awesome and this is great water for skiing -- right out front. From either of the two decks overlooking the water, the line between inside and out is deliberately blurred so you're encouraged to spend the days with the doors wide open to the great Delta weather. For cooler months, there is a cozy gas fireplace and heated floors to make things comfortable.
We thoroughly enjoyed Martha's beautiful house on the delta. The house is nicely decorated, extremely clean, and the beds comfortable. The deck looks down on the Sacramento river making for a relaxing evening, with a large BBQ on the deck ready to serve up treats. The kitchen is large and fully stocked with all kitchen gear you may need. Fast & easy wifi was available.
We brought a boat and two jet skis to explore the nearby Steamboat and Minor's slough, only a short distance away, mostly fast water. Vieira's marina is only a mile away where you can launch your boat, gas up, and park your trailer overnight. Rio Vista is about 15 minutes away with a few restaurants to enjoy. Walnut Grove is a fun town to boat to for lunch and ice cream. The house's dock is nice but be sure to bring bumpers to protect the boat when waves come by.
We fished off their back dock and managed to catch-and-release a couple of fish which was fun (red worms for bait).
Overall, the house exceeded our expectations with Martha's hospitality a treat. We will be returning soon!
Great location, every thing you need, access to canal across the street...we had a fantastic time. Owners are wonderful, available if you need anything. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to spend time on the delta.
This home was very lovely. All a family could want was available. Our hosts were helpful and accommodating.
Straight out of a designer magazine. Our family get together was amazing. This house provided everything I could ask for. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was perfect for entertaining. We enjoyed the beautiful yard and the views. Having the ability to dock our boat and kayak a real bonus. We loved having a BBQ and Firepit for the nice Delta evenings.
I think we have found our new vacation home!
My friends and I stayed in Martha's home this weekend to attend a wedding at the Grand Island Mansion. We couldn't believe how wonderful this home was. It's like a dream! It's exactly as described in the photos, the location is fantastic, and we loved that we didn't have to stay in a stuffy hotel 45 minutes away from the venue. Martha - thank you for being so kind and entrusting your home to us. Don't hesitate to book the property! You will not regret it!
This property is a little peace of heaven! We hosted a team building event and everyone was amazed. Thank you Martha for allowing us to use your property! I highly recommend it to anyone! I posted photos of the event and had a lot of inquires of where we were staying because they didn't believe we were on the delta.
Located in the heart of the Sacramento River Delta, this home is located on an island between the levy banks in the Sacramento River. It is an ideal spot for families to relax and enjoy all the outdoor water sports that are so enjoyable in the Delta. Relaxing days spent fishing, water skiing, swimming and floating are all waiting for you. We are located about 35 miles south of Sacramento, 32 miles northwest of Stockton and 32 miles east of Fairfield.Watch the sunset of the river from either of the two decks on the house.
