The Creekside Cottage is a great place to stay while visiting the Gold Country, on your way to KIRKWOOD, or just looking to relax.
The cottage is easy to access just off highway 88, 3 miles from Jackson, CA and 1 mile east of the Jackson Rancheria General Store
The cottage is quite large for being just one bedroom. It stays cool in summer due to its location. It does not have AC.
The space is easy to heat with the wood and propane stoves. Fires in the wood-stove are not allowed in the summer due to the extreme fire danger in this area.
The kitchen is equipped with all the essentials to cook your favorite meals. There is a gas range and oven, full size refrigerator/freezer and plenty of space and light to enjoy cooking up your meals.
There is no internet available here. Cell phone coverage is fair. There is no land line at the house. There is no TV in the house.
We clean the place ourselves for the $15 cleaning fee. If you are expecting a professionally cleaned space, this is not for you. If you want something economical and plenty clean for your average person, this is for you.
This is a rural location with lots of insects and wildlife of all kinds living right at the doorstep. We never use pesticides. This means you will encounter some spiders and other insects in the creekside cottage. There is no way to 'clean' them all up.
You will have access to the entire home and surrounding 1/2 acre lot. This includes a fenced courtyard between the road and the house for your outside relaxing and dining enjoyment. On the other side of the fence runs the Jackson Creek.
Interaction with guests
We may meet at check in, but my work schedule is erratic and somewhat unpredictable. Diane or I will always be available to answer questions via phone, text or email. If there is any issue that needs fixing with the space we will do so within 1 hr of your call between 8 am and 9 pm and by the next morning if you have an issue at night.
Other things to note
There are two steps up in the bathroom and two steps to enter the house from either of the doors. This space is NOT suitable for those with physical handicaps.
We believe the space is suitable for children with responsible parents, but we do not provide cribs, enclosed play areas etc. and cannot be held responsible for the safety of your children
