Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Folsom - Folsom Guest House

Contemporary 1Br/1Ba Flat With Living Room And Full Kitchen; Sleeps 4.

The guest house offers privacy and peaceful surroundings with ample well-lit parking.

The flat is located upstairs with parking located below. Full-size washer/dryer; Wi-Fi and Dish TV premium channels: HBO, Showtime, ESPN and more. The cheery sun-filled kitchen includes modern electric range, refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, Kuerig coffee machine, toaster, basic utensils and serving ware. Coffee and a variety of teas provided. The bedroom has a queen size bed, and the living room sleeper sofa is also a queen to comfortably accommodate four adults.

Located within walking distance of the restaurants on Sutter Street, the non-smoking property is surrounded by mature trees which provide privacy, shade and peaceful views of the historic district including the river parkway.

For wine tourists, ask about the private vineyard tours available in Somerset (weather and schedule permitting). During the summer our guests enjoy local fruit: oranges and figs from our trees, and grapes and berries from our vines. There is also a local farmer’s market on Saturdays only several blocks away.

The guest house is just steps away to over 30 miles of bike and walking trails stretching along the American River from Folsom to Sacramento and looping around Lake Natoma. You can rent bikes or kayaks within walking distance and explore the quiet waters or hike the oak-lined trails around the lake. Watch for the bald eagles and other wild life along its shoreline. Riding is very popular in Folsom and riders of all abilities and levels have plenty to enjoy. The river trail system starts at Folsom Lake and continues to Sacramento along gentle and scenic riverside trails. More challenging trails include the foothills and wine country, as well as the nearby Sierra Nevada Mountains for more extreme riders and jumpers. Folsom Lake offers sailing and boating, with boat ramps, camp grounds and picnic areas.

To explore outside of Folsom, light rail trains make frequent departures from Historic Folsom Station, just four blocks away. Sacramento is 22 miles and a relaxing 45 minutes away by train. Or spend a day exploring our local wine region just 45 minutes away in the spectacular unspoiled countryside of the Shenandoah Valley of Amador County.

About Stephanie Caruso

We built our home in the Folsom Historic District in 2011. The Guest House apartment was designed for a daughter to occupy during college years and is now available for guests visiting the area.

Stephanie Caruso purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Stephanie Caruso chose Central Valley California

The property was newly built in 2011 so we could enjoy river and trail access and the many activities in the Folsom Historic District. We enjoy riding the trails around both Folsom Lake and Lake Natoma, as well as spending time kayaking nearby. With the Folsom Pro-Rodeo in July, the rock festival 'Folsom Live' in September and events throughout year, this central location is fun. Although we are in town, we enjoy easy proximity to the river and many restaurants.

What makes this apartment unique

We are in the historic area, walking distance from everything, including the light rail train station that connects Folsom to the larger Sacramento metro area. We enjoy living by the river, in a quiet area of Folsom; close to both great outdoor recreation and an entertainment district for convenient restaurants and pubs.

The Folsom guest house is an excellent place to relax

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and well set up. It is situated close to the American River bike path so we could ride our bikes easily along the river without fighting cars. I also rode up to lake Folsom (4 miles) to the mountain bike trails which are a blast to ride.

We were able to sit on the front porch and have dinner in the warm evening's. This was our second time staying and we will be back.

Thanks

Stephanie

Wonderful Folsom Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay here for the Fourth of July weekend. The house was exactly what we needed: just enough space with very clean and comfortable accommodations. The location was excellent and Stephanie was a lovely host. I would highly recommend staying here.

Great little vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

The home was just perfect for my small family. It was tastefully decorated and so comfortable. There were lots of little touches that just made it great, like the menus from local restaurants and the fresh flowers our hostess brought us when we arrived. It's also in a great location.

Beautiful apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Stephanie's apartment for 3 days on a short stay in Folsom to visit family. The apartment is located in historic Folsom and very convient to all that Folsom has to offer. The apartment is just as advertised and more. Stephanie has taken great pains to make it feel like a home away from home. Everything that one would need is provided and attention has been paid to details right down to coffee and detergent for the washer. Everything is new, very clean, and well appointed. We will certainly return when in the area and would urge all to take advantage of this wonderful guest home.

Charming!

  • 5 of 5

The Guest House is very well appointed and very well attended...it's very obvious that a lot of love and care went into the development of the property as well as daily care and attention to detail...location is ideal and quiet...parking is great, which can be a problem in this area as there is no street parking (2 spaces for guest house use)...close to downtown, the American River, walking trails, etc...The Owner has done an excellent job and has really only one concern and that is the guest's comfort...

Charming. Private. Peaceful. Relaxing. Centrally located in Folsom’s historic residential district. Walk to Lake Natoma, bike and walking trails, Historic Sutter Street and light rail. Private parking.

Spend a weekend in your own flat in Folsom’s charming historic district. Our peaceful one-bedroom flat is the perfect combination of modern convenience and historic setting. Walk to your choice of restaurants, two bakeries, coffee shops and micro-brew pubs. Our local farmers market runs year round on Saturday mornings, offering a tremendous assortment of fresh organic produce, baked goods, cheese, and beautiful flowers. Pick something up for a picnic along Lake Natoma on your way back home. Take in a play at our acclaimed and old-time Sutter Street Theater or visit four wonderful museums. All of this is within walking distance from your front door.

Conveniently set on the bike path along the American River, the guest house is located within walking distance of three bridges, two lakes and miles of trails. There are plenty of activities available for active people: water sports, cycling, hiking, and more. The light rail station is a short ten-minute walk which allows you to travel to Sacramento by train.
