Description

A stay at our one-of-a-kind barn house is an exceptional get-away experience. Located in the Sierra foothills wine country on our 42-acre ranch, it is close to wineries, restaurants, shops, and historical sites of the Gold Rush.

We call this the "barn house" because it occupies a corner of our barn/workshop. It is a wonderful space, smack dab in the middle of a beautiful rural setting, but with a very urban feel. There is everything here to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable: 1 bedroom with a cal king bed; a FULLY equipped kitchen; dvd player + various dvds; wireless internet; indoor wood burning stove for cosy evening fires (firewood provided); outdoor charcoal gill (charcoal provided); and outdoor dining space on your own private patio with a GORGEOUS view (trust me, that's not an exaggeration!). This space is located on our 42-acre ranch where you are welcome to experience ranch life as much or as little as you want. We have 40+ ewes and lambs, 3 horses, lots of chickens (we supply you with their eggs!), one dog, 2 cats, and 3 ducks that live full time on the pond. The barn house is surrounded by our small vineyard of primitivo grapes, plus there are groomed walking trails throughout the ranch. The setting is really stunning, with lots of heritage oaks and rolling hills.

Guests can take in as much or as little ranch life as they like. They are welcome to explore the property at will.

We are happy to make your stay an enjoyable and hassle-free one. We love meeting new people but are very good at giving guests all the privacy they need. We live on the other side of the property so we're always around to answer questions and show you the lay of the land.

The barn house is perfectly located to experience everything Amador county has to offer. Wine tasting at the fine wineries of Shenandoah Valley or El Dorado county is just a short drive away. In addition to the wineries, this area has lots of historical sites and charming little towns to explore. Just to mention a few options, you can visit Indian Grinding Rock Historical Park, explore caves at Black Chasm Cavern, or browse the art galleries and antique shops in Sutter Creek and Amador City. Amador also has really excellent places to eat: try breakfast at nearby Element in Sutter Creek, lunch at Andrae's Bakery in Amador City (best bakery in northern CA!) and dinner at the highly acclaimed restaurant Taste in Plymouth.

Guests will need a car.

If you happen to be looking for a place to accommodate a larger family/friends group, we have a 2 bedroom cottage on the property that is available on Airbnb as well.

Guests are free to walk around all 42 acres of the ranch. For our animals peace of mind, however, dogs must be on a leash.

We live on the other side of the property so you'll see us around doing chores. We love meeting all the guests and are happy to offer suggestions on places to eat, wineries, etc. And, if you're interested, we'll show you around the ranch.


House Rules
Check in is anytime after 4PM

Please, no smoking inside the house. You may bring your dog but be aware we have chickens and sheep wandering around so please have them on a leash when they are outside of your compound (some dogs just can't help themselves). We don't allow our dogs on the furniture or beds and expect the same from our guests, so bring your doggy beds! And lastly, we ask that you take your pet with you on day outings as we have had a few unhappy incidents with dogs left alone too long without their owners.

This accommodation has to be one of the best we've experienced. It was private, quiet, and provided a gorgeous view of the hilly landscape. Sherry and Dan are very personable and available yet stayed busy away from our part of their lovely ranch. We will definitely book again when next in Amador county.

This place is THE BEST AirBnB we have ever been to. The setting is utterly serene, and the accommodations are perfect. I don't think I have slept this well in years. The house is comfortable, clean, and the views are stunning. Nice additions like farm fresh eggs (you can walk right past the chickens every day), fresh rosemary in the garden, and lots of open space to enjoy. I wouldn't miss out on this place if you're staying in the Plymouth area.

We had the best time here! The property is gorgeous, very well-maintained and pleasant -- the pictures don't even do it justice. The Barn House was clean, comfortable, well appointed, and has great views of rolling hills (including sheep). Sherry and her husband are wonderful hosts; they were very happy to show us around and even let us accompany them while they rounded up the sheep & chickens for the evening. It's very quiet and serene. Can't wait to go back!

We highly recommend this place! Very clean and well equipped. Lots of big windows with a view of the beautiful land and farm animals. We were greeted with eggs from their chickens. Easy access to Shenandoah Valley Wineries.

A wonderful place in beautiful Amador county! The house is so comfortable and inviting with incredible views of rolling hills with roaming sheep, grazing horses and chickens from every window. Morning walks along the creek with my dog was a treat and the land stunning. Sherry and Dan are gracious and welcoming and we had a great time talking with them about their life out on their farm. We will be back. Thank you Sherry!

Our stay at the Barn House was wonderful. What a surprise! The pictures online don't do this place justice - it was truly a beautiful landscape and property, very private and serene. The Barn House itself was a great space to stay in. Modern, clean, a well equipped kitchen, nice bathroom, and even another little room with a washer and dryer. The entrance through the patio looks out onto a small vineyard and the rolling hills of the property, complete with a cute little flock of sheep frolicking in the distance. Sherry was a wonderful host. The bottle of their Primitivo wine and fresh eggs daily were a real treat! Would definitely recommend this place for a quiet getaway in the Sierra Foothill wine country.
