About the property

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 Folsom

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.

This was our second stay at this home, and it remains perfect for our needs. Close to restaurants, very clean, and enough space for our small family. Owner is very kind and friendly. We plan to stay at this home each time we travel to the area.

Cozy hideaway in Folsom

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed Stephanie's hideaway in Folsom. She has thoughtfully provided everything one needs, and the home is just as pictured. We had a great time visiting with family nearby, and would definitely come again.

Lovely little spot!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here over a long holiday weekend. It was clean and well stocked. We enjoyed being so close to the trail along the river. It's easy to walk from the property to nearby shops and restaurants. If we need to be in Folsom in the future, we would definitely stay here again!
