About Peter Perkins

Catherine Ione-Perkins is a brilliant designer of clothing, costume and textiles. Native to California, Catherine holds a Masters Degree in Fine Arts, and she is an award-winning theatrical costume designer.

Drawn to the challenge of any task at hand, and finding great satisfaction in a job well done, Peter can be found always on the move at the Casa, roaming the landscape in search of new ways to innovate and create in this peaceful and whimsical place.

The Casa del Campo is truly a statement, and an encouraging example, of what imagination and risk-taking can lead one to in turning just an old house into a kitschy and vibrant home.

Why Peter Perkins chose Gold Country / High Sierra

Ten years ago Peter Perkins and Catherine Ione-Perkins came upon their present day home, the Casa del Campo--a diamond in the rough located at the end of a quiet country lane near Grass Valley, California. Comprised of a main house, a guest house and a variety of out buildings, set on several acres featuring open spaces and old growth forest, the property had the bones of greatness--it just needed some loving and purposeful attention. With the creative inspiration of a brilliant local craftsman, the willingness to learn and innovate, and no small amount of artistic vision on their part, Peter and Catherine undertook the process of transforming the houses and land, room by room, yard by yard, into a unique and exciting testimony to what is possible with sincere good intention. Still a work in progress, the Casa is a vibrant canvas, constantly evolving--a spiritual place of positive energy, a fun and relaxing place to rest and plan each day.

Private and peaceful and very clean space!

What a wonderful first experience!

I wanted a place we could stay after we moved our daughter into her new home in the area. It was a very pleasant surprise to find Casa Del Campo Casita Mexicana, so we could get a break after a long full day of moving her and her fiance' into their home. The owner's are so kind and even had a bottle of Sparkling Cider and delicious chocolates chilled in the refrigerator. I really appreciated how clean, and safe the property is. I will be back for sure! Thank you for providing the perfect space for us to relax and get a good night rest.

Truly a place to treasure!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay with Peter and Catherine in the Casita Mexicana. Our hosts were wonderfully attentive as we explored the beautiful grounds. We enjoyed both the outdoor and indoor beauty that was enhanced by all of the hand crafted art that they have created. Every need was taken care of during our stay. We would definitely recommend Case del Campo to others.
