GET AWAY FROM THE CITY AND COME TO THE COUNTRY!!! Great place for social distancing while on vacation and/or working remotely!
This is a horse ranch in the foothills of El Dorado county, with a loft studio above the barn. It is comfortably furnished and has a true country feel! It’s very private and a separate structure from the main ranch house. This lovely barn loft is available to rent year round. Be surrounded by nature and enjoy your privacy! Come and enjoy all this area has to offer!

The space
This property is bordered by BLM land on the right (where you may see cows wandering up to the fence), and horses grazing in pastures on the left. From the back deck, you can see the snow caps of the Sierra Nevada mountains and look over an old Gold Rush era cemetery!! Feel free to walk around and visit with the animals on the ranch! Great location for walks as my street dead ends onto the Cronin Ranch trailhead. If you just want a solitude and quiet escape, this is the place! There is a big comfy chair, great internet and a lap desk for your laptop or tablet! For the more adventurous there are many things to do and see, including white water river rafting, kayaking, hiking, biking, horse back riding, wine tasting and visiting Gold Rush towns are just a few things to do. Must be able to climb stairs to access this barn loft. Best suited for a single person or couple with a comfy queen bed. Also have a single roll away bed available if there is a 3rd person. Children are welcome, but there are stairs, so keep them safe! I do have a baby gate if needed and pack n play if needed.
NEWS FLASH: We had 3 foals born in April/May 2021! Lots of petting appreciated!

Where you’ll be

Pilot Hill, California, United States

This is a quiet rural neighborhood, but it is the country, so you may hear coyotes at night or Canadian Geese coming into the pasture to rest in the morning. Many turkeys and deer are also around but I’m happy to say the LGDs are doing a great job keeping them off the property!
This is a rattlesnake area....however I have been here five years and have never seen one on this property, probably due to the horses and dogs being here. But take care to pay attention when on the trails. The BLM land is fun to explore and see the remnants of homesteaders and evidence of gold mining. Bring your metal detector and perhaps you will get lucky!

I live on a horse ranch in the foothills of northern CA, with my 9 horses, 5 dogs, 2 cats, 4 dwarf Nubian goats and 7 hens! I breed a few horses every year and love the babies!! We also have baby goats in the springtime. Currently my twin adult sons and future daughter in law are staying with me and getting lots of ranch improvements done! This boosted the dogs from 5 to 8 including Casey’s Basset Hound called Willow, Along with Brandon’s 2 dogs, I kept a girl puppy from Stella’s litter born 9/2020, named Hazel! We both love animals and caring for them! Getting away for a relaxing vacation is something I try to do every year! I’m also a retired Certified Nurse Midwife which allows me to be on the ranch more and travel myself! In 2018 I began hosting guests in my new barn loft studio apartment! I love meeting new people, however always respect if guests want more privacy. The loft is great for social distancing due to COVID. I have been fully vaccinated and interaction with guests is at their discretion. NEWS FLASH - We had 3 foals in April and May 2021! We are also expecting 3 foals in the spring of 2022!

During your stay

I will be happy to greet you on your arrival, keeping social distancing of course, when I’m home and will be available by cell phone during your stay. I am happy to give you your privacy and the loft will be unlocked with a key on table. Park down by the barn and get settled in! If I am gone, there will be a ranch hand and my sons Casey & Brandon with DIL Paula watching over everything! I do have 3 outside livestock guard dogs including puppy Hazel. They love people but would not be too happy to see other pets. Teddy and Stella sleep most of the day and at nite are keeping the predators away from the fully fenced ranch. Stella had a litter of puppies in September 2020 and I kept Hazel! We also have dogs in the house including a one yo Basset Hound named Willow, a Golden Doodle called Daisy and a mini Aussie Charlotte. They will mostly be in the back yard. There are several dwarf Nubian goats you can meet and chickens for fresh eggs when the ladies are laying!
NEWS FLASH! 3 foals are again expected in 2022!
