Interaction with guests

Guests phone when they arrive in Chico. I then meet them at the Colman Museum on the main road and guide them here for a short tour. I am available by phone, text or email during their stay.

Other things to note

Very remote private setting. Long dirt road (good condition) off of main road. If you are looking for solitude with only the sound of the river this place will provide just that. Great for writers, artists, musicians, couples and anyone who loves to commune with the natural world.

An elegant and comfortable house in a breathtakingly beautiful setting. I could sit down by the creek all day - no, make that all year! Loved hearing it at night. Loved the big windows in Marilyn's house looking at the oak woods and her beautiful gardens. Great for kids. My kids loved exploring the creek, and collecting rocks and acorns. Frogs, deer, and salmon! An extremely private setting, and the host completely respected our privacy but was available for our questions and very helpful with check-in. Internet is slow, and phones don't work, but you won't miss either.

Great scenic spot; roomy and "homey" house. Marilyn is a terrific hostess. Highly recommended if remoteness and nature is your thing.

Tucked up in the canyon, Marilyn's amazing house is a bit off the beaten path, but totally worth the journey and an absolute gem! There are big beautiful windows and tons of natural light throughout. It has a wonderful deck, great for bird watching, and is a half minute walk from the banks of a pristine creek. Marilyn is super welcoming and made us feel right at home. If you want to visit Chico and don't need to be downtown, book this hidden getaway now!

This is a special place! The home & surroundings was incredibly peaceful. The creek was literally within "yards" of the home and the small beach was a perfect spot to relax & unwind. Marilyn opened up her home for us & we so appreciated it! The surrounding table top mountains & Butte Creek made me want to search for Indian artifacts and or Gold! ....But not enough time as our Chico State Graduation festivities kept interupting!

We just left Marilyn's home. If you love the outdoors doors , you will love it here, she had a nice fire going for us when we got there!

A serene and peaceful place with the stream right next . Only problem is that internet is very slow . So if someone wants to work during the stay forget about it.i will surely go back to this place
