About the property

Newly fully remodeled cottage on 1/4 acre. Fenced in yard. 40" flat screen TV with local channels and large DVD library, pool table, table & yard activities. Family friendly. All new appliances, kitchen, bedding, etc. Family safe for small children without direct water access. Minutes from boat launch, restaurants, bars, grocery store, gas station. 2 new queen beds and queen sleeper sofa with quality mattress. Lots of wildlife in area. Extra folding bed can sleep an extra person in a pinch. Used recently for family reunions, wedding parties and other family oriented gatherings.

Special rates may apply for longer duration stays. We have hosted families that have had family reunions or weddings that have stayed for extended periods of time.

This is also a perfect place to stay if you are relocating to the area but your new place is not ready. No need to unpack part of your belongings or furniture. We are more fully equipped than most timeshares.

We are also developing a new concept for vacationing. We have purchased a new 34' travel trailer with too many features to describe here, located on a quiet private waterfront setting. Can sleep up to 9. If you enjoy a high end camping experience but do not want to take an RV, and like a little more privacy than a conventional RV park offers, this may be perfect for you. Same Delta location, like a private park. More information upcoming.

We take great care of our homes and this property Is an extension of our home as it is only a few houses away. As an artist it was a pleasure to decorate this home with a delta theme. It has been a labor of love that we enjoy sharing . It is our hope that no matter what your activities include that you find your experience uplifting and refueling.

Ann Muench purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Ann Muench chose California

DELTA ESCAPES offers a secure venue to participate in year round world class bass tournaments and other water recreation. With DELTA ESCAPES you are within a quick seven minutes to boat launching. Water craft rentals are also available nearby with which to enjoy the delta .

Delta Escapes offers a fenced in secure area next to home for fishermen's boat and vehicle which is rare for those who want to take advantage of the bass tournaments.

Beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5

This was the best VRBO we have stayed at yet! The house was incredibly clean, the space was cute as can be and the decor was quite charming! I loved the original hand painted pictures, simply beautiful. Anne accomadated us with all our needs. The back yard was perfect for playing catch with the 5 & 3 year old. We were able to easily get our flowers arranged for the wedding as well as spiff up the bride for the big occasion! Thanks so much.

Perfect for our needs

  • 5 of 5

What a lovey, clean, and organized property! It was perfect for my brother in laws weddding weekend. We stayed here and all the guys got ready for the wedding here and it was just the right amount of space and location was within. 5 miles of the wedding venue. The host, Ann was so welcoming and provided coffee, mint and citrus infused water, and snacks. House instructions were clear and easy to follow. We also enjoyed the backyard area and walking around the nearby marina in the mornings. Thanks again Ann for a great stay! The Seidel's

Extremely well taken care of and very cozy

  • 4 of 5

Was very pleased with my stay the owners are extremely welcoming and go above and beyond what I expected.The only reason I gave it a 4 out of 5 is there is limited T.V channels.Overall I would defiantly recommend this to others especially if they are looking for good parking with a boat

It's so hard to find a reasonable priced vacation rental in the area. I was so happy to find this place online and the pictures truly represent the property. It is so well maintained and was such a perfect fit for our needs. No wifi, that would have helpful.

We flew in from out of the area and didn't get in until after 2am. The owners had supplied us with eggs, bagels, butter and coffee to get us going! Would definitely stay here again. Thank you for your thoughtfulness!

Great property and location owner was very nice.

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our time at the rental and found the area to our liking as it reminded us of our property in New Mexico as it relates to the surroundings. Much greener but the ranch land and space around the property was much like our area.

As we spent a lot of time on the property with our grandchild it was safe for her and we had space to run around with her and she enjoyed being able to see the farm animals near by.

We would have like to have had access to a wider range of TV channels and the internet, both would have made the stay perfect.

Overall, great stay.

Wedding stay

  • 5 of 5

From my first contact with the owner Ann, she was just as kind as could be! Meeting her in person (as well as her husband), I know I have made a friend for life! With the hustle and bustle of working two jobs and trying to keep up on my daughter's wedding plans, let alone to find the RIGHT house, we stumbled upon this gem and what a gem it is! The home is warm and inviting and welcomes you in after being on the road (for us, a drive in from Reno, Nevada). Ann was there to greet us, give us a tour of the home, had the fridge stocked with breakfast goodies, a fresh bowl of fruit AND had made a "honeymoon basket" for my daughter! With this immaculate home and such attention to every detail, I asked Ann if she was in the hospitality industry and she replied, "No", which tells me, Ann gives from the heart! Her husband came by to introduce himself, give us a tour of their yard, complete with flower beds, "cottages" they built and an "oldies" car he is restoring! Being from Nevada and BIG Hot August Nights fans, we hope to stay informed on his restoration! We truly enjoyed the peace and quiet location of the home, stocked with plenty of movies, board games, cards, pool table and the gas bar-b-q! Needless to say, we will return! If you are single or travelling with friends or family, you will truly appreciate the warm hospitality and immaculate home!
