Comfortable stay, great deck!
The interior decor is wonderfully eclectic, and the 3 bedrooms are well separated from the living areas. The master bedroom is very large and the king-sized bed is comfortable. Master bathroom has a huge shower and 2 freestanding sinks, but lacks storage areas/shelves for toiletries, etc. The kitchen has most of the items needed for preparing and cooking foods, but you will need to bring basic food stuffs such as spices, condiments, cooking oils/sprays, food storage containers, etc. Previous tenants had cracked the stove cooktop so the large front burner wasn't usable, but the other burners were fine. Air conditioning units in the living areas and the master made for comfortable afternoons and the evenings cool off enough to not need AC after about 7-8 PM. We enjoyed the huge back deck that faces southwest and showcases the beautiful American River Canyon area. The sky was dark enough (hello Milky Way!) that we were able to thoroughly enjoy the Perseid meteor shower mid-August. The properties on either side have horses and chickens (no roosters, though!) and it was relaxing and enjoyable to watch them. There was a bbq grill missing, but the owners promptly brought one by when requested. They seem very pleasant and accommodating and live up the street from the property. We would definitely stay here again.
