The space

Little House on the Fish Farm was built in 2013. The three-bedroom, two-bath guest house is located on property that has been in our family for generations.

The family room is a comfortable place to relax after a long day of sightseeing. The library is filled with books to encourage you on your next adventure. There is also a Smart TV, DVDs, and board games.

Galley kitchen is equipped with:
• custom granite countertops
• stainless steel fridge

The master bedroom has a walk-in closet and is furnished with a queen bed. A favorite feature in the master bathroom is the soaking tub. The other two bedrooms share a bathroom and are furnished with twin beds. Each bathroom has a blow dryer.

The house has a washer, dryer, iron, ironing board, steamer and two full-length mirrors.


THE OUTSIDE SPACE

Little House on the Fish Farm is located in the Sanger river bottom, known for its peacefulness and beautiful scenery. Our ponds play host to a variety of wildlife including fish, insects, frogs, beavers, waterfowl, and birds of prey. In the late spring, splashes of vibrant color dot our ponds as water lilies begin to bloom.

A stone’s throw from Little House, sheep, goats, and cows graze in the pasture. Feel free to visit the hen house and collect eggs for your morning breakfast. The “floating” goat house greets you as you drive down the dirt road.

Sunrise is a magical time. Grab a cup of coffee, head outside, and experience the farm as she wakens from her slumber. Sunsets are equally spectacular. Go ahead, fire up the BBQ and enjoy a leisurely dinner on the spacious wrap-around deck. There is a kind of hush as darkness slowly envelops the farm. The stars shine brightly in the stillness. It is a perfect ending to an unforgettable day.

Guest access

Guests have access to the house, deck, chicken coop and the large pasture in front of the house. Guests do not have access to the rest of the property without permission.

Interaction with guests

We live down the road. Feel free to call/text if you have questions during your stay.

Our family had the most memorable weekend at this wonderful property! The house itself was just lovely and comfortable and a great size for our family of 5 (2 adults, 3 kids). The best part of our stay, however, was the farm itself. Goats, sheep, cows and chickens lived just steps from the front door! The hosts gave us permission to feed the animals vegetables which quickly became the kids' favorite activity. Halfway through our stay, we contacted the hosts for a fishing trip (for a very reasonable extra cost). We met John, the owner, at one of his ponds on the property and spent an enjoyable morning (and afternoon) teaching the kids to fish catfish and learning about the farm. John is a wonderful, kind and patient man who truly wants his guests to have a nice experience on his property. He even cleaned, gutted and filleted our fish! If your family wants a rural, farm experience with close interaction with animals in a beautiful, peaceful setting, then book a stay at the Fish Farm! We can't wait to go back!

AMAZING stay in a unique part of California! I'd HIGHLY recommend John and Janet's place at the farm -- the pictures don't begin to do it justice. We stayed for two nights as we roadtripped from California to Texas. Had I known what a gem this place is, I would have booked it longer! The house sits within the grounds of their 'aquaponics farm'. There are ponds, livestock and animals and greenery all around. We loved waking in the morning and seeing the goat pen in front of the house (they were fun to feed too!) John joined us (my wife and two kids, ages 3 and 7) for a morning fish, as we dropped lines into his stocked ponds of bass and catfish. We didn't catch anything that morning, but later that night we nabbed the biggest catfish I've ever caught. The house is a few minutes into the quaint town of Sanger, where there is a grocery store and multiple restaurant options (be sure to stop at the Chuck Wagon chili dog stand!) 10/10!

We enjoyed our stay at John and Janet's place. It was very beautiful and super clean. It had a full kitchen and very nice grill. We enjoyed the miles and miles of fruit trees and farm animals. John is very knowledgeable and a very nice guy. If you are looking for a place to relax and enjoy nature, this is the right place.

John & Janet User ProfileJohn & Janet is a superhost.

An avid fisherman in his youth, John studied fisheries biology at the University of California, Davis. Upon graduation John served in the Peace Corps in Papua New Guinea.

A farmer’s daughter, Janet grew up eating local, sustainable and free-range long before it was fashionable. Her father raised fruit, vegetables and cows in California’s fertile Central Valley.

Initially, John and Janet settled in the San Francisco bay area, but they longed for a more simple, self-sufficient lifestyle. In 1985, they moved to Sanger, California and broke ground on their first fish pond.
