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.

What a great stay! We had a wonderful time in this cozy house. My wife, kids and I really enjoyed the location and our puppy appreciated company from your dogs. We'll be back again!

Folsom cottage

A lovely place, comfy and well appointed with a friendly cat that greeted us on the porch upon arrival. Easy walk to the old downtown. We will certainly stay again next year.

Review of Folsom Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this property was very pleasant. The cottage has been renovated and the upgrades are very modern. Everything was clean and comfortable. Maureen makes herself available to her guests and makes it a point to come meet them. We look forward to staying at this property in the spring or summer when we can sit on the deck and enjoy the pool!

The Gold Standard

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Sutter Cottage over the 14th to 17th October and were very impressed at the cleanliness of the accommodation, its layout and the kitchen equipment.

The cottage has an external deck with gas barbeque, a four person table with awning and access to the owner’s pool; California experienced a severe rain storm during our visit so we were unable to use the outside area due to the torrential rain.

The kitchen is very well equipped with a wide range of non-stick pots and pans that are in very good condition with a large gas oven, hob, dishwasher, clothes washer and drier.

I think that this property is a great example of how to run a rental property as the cleanliness is second to none and I would award it a gold standard; so many thanks to the owners and their maintenance staff.

The entertainment has a DVD player, digital TV, internet and WiFi access which was great for keeping in touch with our UK based family and friends.

The shower room is fantastic as it is a walk in shower and not a shower over a bath which is a problem for me as I have some mobility issues.

The owners live on the same property so if there are any issues they are rapidly resolved.

The property is within walking distance of the historic Folsom area which is worth a visit.

Overall I think this is an exceptionally well maintained well run property and a credit to the owners.

If only all holiday rentals were as good as this!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we booked to the time we left everything went smoothly. Accessing the property was problem free, we were welcomed and then left undisturbed though the owners are only yards away in the adjoining building. For once, the kitchen was actually well equipped and scrupulously clean... everything worked!

The bathroom was a squeaky clean joy to use, the bed comfortable with quality cotton bedding.

Even Jinx the cat made us feel at home with her nightly patrol visits.

It rained for most of our stay so we weren't able to enjoy our wine under the stars on the deck.. but we did like listening to the waterfall!

We aren't dog owners and had concerns that dog friendly rentals inevitably smell of their canine occupants, not this place!

Thank you, Maureen, you have created a truly special home from home.
