It's not just a space it's an experience! Charming spacious private one bedroom bungalow separate from our 100 year old farm house. It's in a quiet rural location just minutes from downtown Chico It's a unique, San Francisco style apartment with a well stocked kitchen. Complete with pool & milk goats.
This bungalow is fully equipped to relax in or cook a great dinner. It is very private and separate from the house and extremely charming . A recent guest said " this is like staying in San Francisco". It has been remodeled with lots of moldings and homemade glass tiles from my kiln. We have a year round herb garden, seasonal vege garden and orchard to pick from. We have chickens and a milk goat and her kids.
The bungalow looks out on the new vineyard that will produce this year.. The pool is secluded and a great place to relax. We are only minutes from town and not far to the highway through some nut orchards into town. If you are looking to experience some moments away from city sounds and want to wake up to peaceful sounds of the country, come stay here. Come listen to the sounds of a mocking bird or our daily evening owl. Away from city lights makes for great star viewing every night! You can even see the Milky Way!!
Our guest house is very private and surrounded by green. It is furnished with eclectic comfortable furnishings. You have a separate entrance away from the main old farm house, complete with your own patio and adirondack chairs facing our new vineyard. Our pool is out in the back and is there to share and be enjoyed. Come pet our goats, or even try milking.
Plenty of parking is available. Pick from whatever is in season. Fresh eggs will be here if our hens are cooperative. Try my Chèvre cheese we make if your timing is right. By arrangement, we have bikes, a canoe and old fashioned inner tubes if you want to explore our rivers, lakes and bike paths. The sofa bed in the living room makes into a bed, separate and private from the bedroom, and we even have an extra floor futon or queen air mattress to accommodate extra guests.
We are foodies and we love to share our space and knowledge of our town. I prefer to shop local from our various fruit markets and stands around. I love to take short trips to close by places to purchase or taste wine, olive and infused vinegars. It is with great pleasure to talk about our nearby historical monastery and vineyard. We buy local meats and are always willing to share info on where to go to buy award winning local sausage and meat.
We will meet you and a cold breakfast will be ready for you for all short stays. We will be there to help your stay with recommendations. We will be as involved as you need or want. We love to cook and share when the moment is right. Homemade jam will be sitting on the counter for your pleasure!
We are close to Chico and go into town many times a day. We have the sounds of country living. Nothing is far from us. This is a wonderful jumping off place for visiting Lake Almanor, hiking Lassen National Park, visiting Bidwell park, touring Sierra Nevada Brewery an amazing place so close to our wonderful town of Chico. Vina Monastery and winery is just 15 minutes away. Come try our special life!
We also have an old walk-in cooler for hunters, fisherman or those here to pick from the university farm.
You have a private non smoking Bungalow. We ask you to respect it and enjoy each moment.
We are a couple from northern California who love to travel. We explore slowly and love to meet people. Meeting people and exchanging stories are our favorite moments. We have hosted many exchange students over the years as well as allowed our only daughter to also experience this exchange. We love to eat and visiting markets is one of our favorite things to do.
We are excited to be an Airbnb host so we can share our great living space and life style. We want to share Chico and encourage what there is to do around Northern California. We love to live life!
