The tower home was built around the original water tower that stored water on site. It sits in the beautiful foothills of the Northern California Sierras.

If you love country this is for you. Star gazing while listening to the cows bellowing and the howling of cayotes tops the day of cycling, wine tasting and white water rafting.

Sunflowers grow in front with an assortment of wild flowers and zennias that you can pick and enjoy

This home can be booked with main house for bigger groups.

The space

This guest home sits on 8 acres of farm land along with the main house which is only 8 feet away. This was originally the pump house and so it has a water tower on the 3rd floor. The original owners then built a house under the tower and then built the main house.

If you feel adventurous you could walk down past the quanset hut and see the old out house and old barn.

There is a fenced common yard between the two homes as well as fenced yard on the outside of the houses, if that makes sense.

The house is 3 stories but only 2 stories are used. It is a 3 bedroom 1 bath home. It can be used by itself or combined with the main house for bigger groups. Half of the year we are lush green. The other half of the year we truly have golden hills. We are in the beautiful foothills of the Sierras just 15 minutes from historical downtown Placerville (originally Hangtown).
Our home is in the beautiful foothills of Northern California. We have the only sunflower farm in the area that I'm aware of. I start planting in April and they start blossoming around the end of July. We also grow pumpkins and various other flowers.

In the flower garden I have seven little fairy villages through out with attaching trails so the fairies can stay in touch. There also is a gnome village and a large oak tree with several fairy homes. Everyone is invited to go out and visit the fairies and pick flowers for your stay.

Interaction with guests

I am Available any time for my guests. I will be there at times working in my sunflower garden. Also I can be reached by phone or email. I prefer text messages.

Other things to note

We have two dogs that will be on the property. They are big and kind dogs (1 year olds). We do ask that you keep the driveway gate to the property closed so that they stay on our property.

We have 4 adult and 1 child kayaks that you are welcome to use at any of the surrounding lakes in our area. We have 2 adult and 1 child life jackets.

We wanted to get away from the busy Bay Area. The home was secluded but not too far from the conveniences we are accustomed to. We, especially my daughters, appreciate the horse, dogs, and cats living on the property. For a weekend it felt like we were living out in the country - just what we needed. Candis was very responsive to our needs/questions.

This House is absolutely amazing! Decorated with love, fully equipped with everything you need and pefectly clean. Candis even prepared breakfast and delicious Popcorn for us. Me and my Friends slept very good in the comfortable beds. This is ohne of my favourite Airbnb homes and I can highly recommend this House!

This place is nothing short of magical. It's an idyllic setting in the heart of Gold Country with great amenities and an abundance of hospitality. From the amazing sunflowers that line the roadway in front to the balcony that overlooks the whole valley. You really can't ask for a better place. Even if you don't have a reason to go to this area, this place gives you a reason. A great launching point to visit farms, wineries, the American River, Apple Hill, and so much more. The beds are super comfy and the kitchen is well stocked. A perfect place for a few couples to get away or a family. We'll be back very soon.

Candis's home was excellent, a perfect stay for our party of 6. The house has tons of amenities and she provided us with everything we would possibly need, including a big plate of cookies and bowl of popcorn! The beds were very soft and comfortable, and her kitchen is fully equipped. Check-in was easy as well. Candis also has gorgeous fairy gardens that guests should definitely check out. We had a wonderful time, and will definitely book with Candis if we go rafting again in the future!

The space was perfect for our trip to Placerville to raft and wine taste! The home is stocked with everything you'd have at home. I was able to cook dinner for 8 and had all of the equipment I needed. There are two dogs on the property that steer clear for the most part as well as a few cats who keep their distance. The upstairs patio was beautiful.

For a last minute stay it was more than we can ask for. Candis let us know the house wasn't in tip top shape so we weren't really expecting a whole lot. When we can it was more than what we needed. I can't wait to see what she does with the house when it's remodeled. It will be absolutely beautiful, if it wasn't already.
