The Stone’s Throw Cottage is a historic home in the beautiful Sierra foothills. Built in the 1940’s by a local stonemason, Stone’s Throw Cottage was fully renovated in 2018/2019. Located just outside the Auburn City limits, it is in a semi-rural area, yet 5 minutes to historic Auburn. Situated on 1/2 acre, it’s quiet, private and charming. Close to hiking, the wine trail, craft breweries, dining, galleries and coffee shops, this is a peaceful retreat or home base to explore all the area offers.

Auburn, California, United States

Our semi-rural neighborhood is a hidden gem in the Auburn area. Just a mile or two to services (gas, grocery, restaurants, breweries, shopping, wineries, trails) and only 5 minutes to downtown Auburn, this is a neighborhood where neighbors are friends, and we care about our properties. It's a great home base for exploring the Auburn area, trails, galleries, breweries, wine trail, river, etc. Just a stone's throw to Truckee (60 minutes), Tahoe (about 80 minutes), Sacramento (35 minutes), San Francisco (2 hours) or Napa (about 90 minutes) this is the perfect home base to explore all that beautiful northern California has to offer. Auburn itself has great restaurants, world class wineries and breweries, wonderful shopping, galleries, and oodles of outdoor and adventure sports. We're known as the 'Endurance Capital of the World' with many elite (and non elite!) races that start and/or end here. Auburn has a little something to interest just about everyone!
