The house is located on a little spur of private land sticking out into a federal wildlife reserve. This means we have nearly 360 degrees of beautiful views. Further, we are less than 20 minutes from some of the best hiking in this part of the country. You will have a private room and bathroom. Towels and linens are provided. While a full breakfast is not provided, I do offer coffee and juice in the morning.

Chris' place was a wonderful place to stay! It was clean, and a great location from all the outdoor amenities around Davis. Chris was incredibly kind and helpful, and great with communication. Irie and Huck, the dogs, were a wonderful treat! Very friendly, all around.

Chris' home is beautiful and he is an excellent host. It was quite snowy when my boyfriend and I arrived, and we very much enjoyed watching the snow fall from the big window in our room. Chris was friendly and always willing to offer suggestions to local events and fare but never…

Getting around

You will most certainly need a car (or motorcycle) here. Out in the mountains, there's no bus or train service.
