Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Our guesthouse is nestled up against the San Gabriel Mountains and located about 5 miles from downtown Pasadena where there is plenty of shopping and dining. Pasadena attractions include the Rose Bowl, Rose Parade, Caltech, JPL, Huntington Library, LA County Arboretum, and Norton Simon Museum. There are many hiking and bike trails in the nearby mountains. The Rose Bowl Stadium is 3.5 miles away.

The space
The guesthouse is separate but next to the main house. The guesthouse will comfortably accommodate 2 adults. There is 1 bed and will not accommodate additional guests or children. The sofa is not suitable for sleeping. The main house is one of the oldest homes in Altadena and was built in 1890 as a hunting lodge. It is located in a park-like setting on 1.75 acres and is not visible from the road. The hosts have lived here for over 41 years. The property has many mature trees and gardens. The sunrise from the bedroom can be spectacular. The area is generally very quiet with minimal neighborhood noise. The location does not have a perimeter fence or entry gate. There is a pickle ball court behind the guesthouse which guests are allowed to use. Guests may walk around the property but not down into the wash behind the house. Because the property is so near the national forest, wild animals do come onto the property. Most frequently seen are coyotes and deer (daily). Less frequent animal visitors, and usually at night, include possums, skunks, and raccoons. There are many birds in the area and you may hear wild parrots and peacocks in the morning.
