Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom close to town

Welcome! Relax in our California cottage. A pleasant 8 min. walk downhill takes you to quaint Placerville Main Street, restaurants, cafes, and grocery stores. Just 20 miles from the California's Capital City of Sacramento and just over an hour away from beautiful scenic Lake Tahoe, our cottage is ideally located in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains for whatever you are interested in without the premium prices.

Our vacation house features a fully outfitted kitchen for your cooking needs and complimentary tea and coffee. There is a dishwasher for quick cleanup & laundry machine available for you to refresh your clothes. There is a security camera outside the front door and 2 parking space. Unfortunately we cannot accept pets.

Furthermore, in the summer you can relax in the temperate California evenings on our back patio and enjoy the serene view of surrounding mountains and lush pine trees. In the evenings you can share some family time over movies in the television room or board games and conversation in the living room.

When it comes time for sleep we have two bedrooms (1 queen bed in the master bedroom and in the second bedroom 2 twins) and a convertible futon (full size) in the television room that will serve as your personal and private comfort space before a new day and a new adventure begins.

About Todd & Andrea Jordan

We are world travelers and have spent many months in various countries; although Placerville is Andrea's hometown. Andrea definitely has Todd beat when it comes to who has been to the most countries, but Todd still holds the title of longest continuous stay having lived in Japan for 4 years. Japan is where Todd's dream to provide a super amazing hospitality to guests was born. We would be delighted to welcome you to our vacation getaway house and tell you all about the hot tips and places to see in our area.

Todd & Andrea Jordan purchased this house in 2014

Why Todd & Andrea Jordan chose Gold Country / High Sierra

We bought this home because it fulfilled many criteria both personal and business related; but the thing to take away from any/all of those reasons is that this house fit perfectly in every situation we could think of. It was private but not too far from city life, great central location to activities both in the local city and the wider area, Andrea grew up here and knows the area, it's close to family and so on. We have listed many of the great things about this property on this site but if you have any specific questions we would be more than happy to hear from you.

Amazing!

We were in town for a wedding and the cottage was a perfect location! We spent a day exploring the area and doing a little wine tasting. Check in and check out was very easy! We will be staying here again!!!

Home Base for American River Kayaking / Rafting Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Perfect spot for my husband and I to have as a home base for a long weekend in the country. I was here to kayak the American River, starting out of Lotus. It was an easy and scenic drive from the cottage over to Lotus, and nice to have all the conveniences and restaurants of Placerville nearby in the evening. We ate at both the Independent and Heyday Cafe, and we enjoyed both. The cottage had everything we needed and plenty of room for comfort. My husband enjoyed the "Dad" recliner! We have stayed previously at the historic hotel in town, and found that it was much nicer to have more room and privacy here. Many thanks to our hosts who were so welcoming. I would certainly stay again, no doubt!

Cute place, nice location

  • 5 of 5

There were five adults staying at this nice little cottage. Sleeping arraignments worked great for us. Andrea had the bath well supplied with towels etc as well as shampoo and other toiletries. Kitchen was also supplied with teas, hot chocolate, even microwave popcorn. We all felt at home and comfortable there. All five of us were very pleased. Thanks Andrea.
