The Jolly Tar Mine House is more than a vacation rental - its an experience. This is a fun place to be for families & groups, 19 total rooms - 3 stories with the wrap around decks & seating, saloon, dance floor and stage area, situated on almost 2 acres. Parking enough for huge amount of cars. Ideal for fishing groups, large family reunions and more. We have all the cooking & serving supplies - we can easily handle large groups.
This charming huge house was first built by the Jolly Tar Mine's owner era 1880 during the Goldrush. It was added onto in the 1950's and then again in the 1980s. It was updated in 2010. The house is packet full of interesting Antiques, Art, and unusual things.
The Jolly Tar Mine House is a great place to relax, have fun, celebrate a wedding, anniversary, birthday party, church retreat, large family vacation and more. People get happy just being in the house; it's a very special place.
This is the place most kids want to have their birthday party. Its a place that groups of fisherman want to stay so they don't have to unhook their boats. It's a place that a family can have a reunion year after year, its a place where bikers, cyclists, spelunkers, and other groups can be together and have fun.
Vacation rentals like this are an inexpensive way to have a vacation since you can cook your own food, split the cost among several people and have all the comforts of a large family home at your disposal.
Clean up before you leave. This means washing and drying dishes, checking for personal items, sweeping, and cleaning major messes. Take trash to the trashcans provided. Turn off all heating and air conditioning. We have a list posted. It's all pretty basic.
Children must be supervised. No smoking inside the house. There are ash trays provided outdoors; please use them. If you use the player piano, please be gentle with the scrolls. We do have some antiques and instruments in the house. Please ensure that these items stay out of the reach of or are respected by children. We wish for everyone to enjoy these items.
What a great place to bring a group! We stayed with about 15 people, mostly couples but some singles, and everyone slept comfortably. The master bedroom is AMAZING, tucked away in the basement with a private jacuzzi tub. Our group loved discovering all the adorable frogs around the house and also enjoyed the holiday decorations.
We stayed over New Year's Eve, which was a great choice. It was so nice to get out of the city and breathe the fresh air.
Thank you Diane!
Staying here was a great weekend. There were enough beds for our large party (10 people not sharing), more than enough kitchen essentials for cooking for a large group, and there was even charcoal and lighter fluid available for the grills.
The cable was not initially working but Diane quickly responded to our call and fixed it.
The backyard was huge, you have a good amount of space to yourself while still being two blocks away from a shopping center if you need anything.
Would definitely recommend and stay again.
