About Maureen Picarella

We love old town Folsom! This picture was our 30th anniversary photo, taken at a favorite spot on the American River, just steps from our home and the cottage. As a working couple, we know how hard it is to fit in quality time...living in this area gives us the opportunity to be active with our family/dogs, get out to dinner, shop and enjoy all of the events the Historic District has to offer. All without ever getting in our car. Maureen has spent over 30 years working in the field of property management. Remodeling this cottage and making it comfortable for our guests came naturally!

We look forward to meeting each of you and hope you feel as at home!

Maureen Picarella purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Maureen Picarella chose Central Valley California

Yes, you can stay in a hotel nearby...but why, when you can spend time in this comfortable, modern cottage? As close as you can get to the action in old town Folsom, yet so peaceful and quiet when you're ready to relax.

What makes this cottage unique

Quiet, private location, yet a few minutes walk away from everything the Historic District has to offer. Owners on site, very responsive to questions or concerns that may come up.

"Comfort At Its Best"

  • 5 of 5

What a great find. Nice quiet location just a couple of blocks from Old Town Folsom. Maureen is a great host and responds to any requests you might have. The one bedroom apartment above their garage is very private and very comfortable. Nice kitchen that was well equipped. King bed was also very comfortable. Pictures on VRBO are accurate. This was our first time staying here to visit family and friends in the Sacramento area. We will be staying here for all future visits. Folsom is a great location with many restaurants and you also have the American River Bike trails within walking distance. Maureen also informed us they have a 2 bedroom remodeled cottage just a few blocks away that is coming available.

I am not into writing gushy reviews so this is it. So look no further just book it!

What a wonderful stay in Historic Folsom! This cottage was thoroughly appointed with everything you need to feel right at home. You can not get any cleaner or more comfortable than this. I truly felt like I was at home. We will definitely stay here again when we make plans to return to the area. Thank you!

Quite retreat in old town Folsom

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this beautiful cottage with our 2 dogs. There are lots of trails and the bike trail close by along with parks within walking distance. The cottage was very clean and has updated new fixtures and furnishings. It was great to be within walking distance to great restaurants too! Really enjoyed our stay.

A sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

This place is truly one-of-a-kind. My wife and I needed a place to stay in the Roseville area and we opt'd for this cottage walking distance to the historic Folsom district downtown and we are sure glad we did! This place was a detached unit on the owners property, with a spool, table with umbrella, with plenty of greenery and a couple super cute pups. We had a dog of our own too so this place was very dog friendly. It didn't smell like "dog" when we arrived nor was it dirty, this place was emaculately clean. I just can't emphasize enough how cozy this place was, it truly was a sanctuary (in my wife's own words). The space had great energy, it was extremely comfortable and the bed was great. The amenities were all new and you could tell the owners really took pride in this VRBO. I worked comfortably from the house during the day, there was AC and there was plenty to do, just .1 miles from the place! Extremely walkable! Would recommend this place to anyone looking in the Folsom/Roseville area! Will definitely come here for a return visit!!

Centrally located to Sutter street shopping, restaurants and activities. Walk to the American River Recreation trail for walking, or biking. Folsom Lake is a short 10 minute drive away.

Walk to Folsom's Light Rail station...convenient access to Folsom Premium Outlets and downtown Sacramento from this stop.

Ski some of Lake Tahoe's premier resorts, only a 1 - 1/2 hour drive away from Folsom. Summertime activities are endless, within the Folsom Lake recreation area, as well as the Sierra Nevada foothills.

This location has it all!!!
