Our guesthouse is across the driveway from the main house on 1.5 acres on a quiet country road, yet only 2 miles from Old Town Auburn, 3 miles from the Auburn State Recreation Area, and 1.5 hours from Lake Tahoe. The guesthouse is approximately 375 sq ft, has its own entrance with convenient parking, a well-appointed kitchenette, a bedroom with a full size bed adjoining a private deck, and a huge bathroom with a closet. It’s perfect for a couple or single, and suitable for longer term stays.

Location

Auburn, California, United States

Auburn is a really fun place to be. We have wineries, breweries, museums, art, shops, and it’s an outdoors-person’s paradise. The Auburn State Recreation Area has it all: trails for hiking, running, backpacking, mountain biking, horseback riding, and OHV; the American River for swimming, canoeing, kayaking, paddle-boarding, floating, rafting, fishing, and gold panning. There’s even some serious rock climbing to do here.

We are super-close to Old Town Auburn and Downtown Auburn, as well as Newcastle. Ask us for restaurant recommendations but we always love Newcastle Pizzeria in Newcastle, and recommend Monkey Cat in downtown Auburn for fine dining.

There's free parking at various locations that will get you into the Auburn State Recreation Area for running or hiking: Murphy's Gate, along the road near China Gate, and at American River Overlook Park. Parking is $10 at or near the confluence but that gets you really close to the river if you just want to hang out and cool off. We have maps in the guesthouse--ask us about any features of the park you're interested in visiting.

If you're into cooler or cold (depending on the time of year), head up I80 toward Truckee. We are only 1 hour from skiing at Boreal, and 1.5 hours to numerous runs in the North Lake Tahoe area. Or take a hike along part of the Pacific Crest Trail with spectacular views of Donner Lake--that's less than an hour drive.

My partner and I bought this crazy fixer-upper in 2015 and dreamed of making it the sort of place where our friends and families would want to visit. It's still a work in progress but we loved the guesthouse so much that we wanted to share it as much as possible. I really like preparing the place and meeting the people that come to stay. I find myself humbled and inspired by the kindness of travelers. My partner Chris has an art studio at the house and I am a freelance writer/editor. When we're not here, we are traveling to see friends and family, or getting our big city fix. My favorite thing about living in Auburn is its proximity to the American River Canyon. I run trails with the dog out there every day.
