About this listing
Our fully furnished studio apartment is located next to our main home and attached to the farm shop. There are walking trails, an outdoor grill and fire pit with large lawns perfect for relaxation.
This is a fully self-contained, private studio apartment located on a gated 32-acre cherry and horse farm, approximately 45 minutes from the entrance to the Kings Canyon National Park and Sequoia National Park in Central California. The apartment is fully furnished and attached to the farm's shop - next to the main home.
There is a queen bed in the apartment along with a twin rollaway bed. It also has DirecTV, a full kitchen, and laundry facilities.
The main visitor center in Yosemite National Park is less than two hours away (unless traffic is backed up getting into the park). The central portion of Sequoia National Park and Kings Canyon National Park are approximately 55 minutes from our home. The Paso Robles wine region is approximately 2.5 hours away and a lovely way to enjoy a day.
Dogs are welcome if you let us know in advance and clean up after them - a cleaning surcharge applies. There is also a large, outdoor dog run attached to the shop. And, we have space for your horses if you happen to be traveling with them.
This is a non-smoking studio.
You will also have access to the swimming pool, BBQ grill, entertainment areas, etc. There are two large fire pits available for use during the cooler months. One is next to the garden and park while the other one is next to the horse barn near the creek. Firewood is available behind the chicken coop/garden area.
You can also enjoy walking along the cherry, citrus and almond orchards and along Fancher Creek, which runs down the southern border of the property and is one of the few creeks in California that flows during the summer/fall.
Interaction with guests
Stephanie and Jonah are currently living in our main home while we are in Denver for business responsibilities. Both will be available for information and assistance.
This is a rural agriculture area with citrus, cherry, almond and other fruit and nut orchards as well as grape vineyards and a number of specialty vegetable farms.
Personal vehicles will be necessary for transportation. Public transportation does not exist in this rural area.
Other things to note
This is a working farm with normal farming activities taking place throughout the year. The cherries normally bloom in March with harvest around the end of April. Additionally, there is an equestrian facility located on the farm where horses are trained and cared for on a daily basis. Accordingly, while it is normally quiet and peaceful on this farm, there are times when various activities will create noise. Specifically, there may occasionally be mornings when activities in the shop begin around 6:00 am when something needs repair or servicing.
- Dogs are welcome if approved in advance, but owner must clean up after their pets. We charge a $50/dog for short-term stays. This is payable upon arrival directly to Stephanie or Jonah and covers the extra cleaning required following the departure of our pet guests.
- Smoking is not permitted inside the studio.
I was born and raised in the Clovis/Fresno area. I met my husband, Blair, in 2010 and moved onto the property in Sanger. Blair has worked in ag-related industries since he graduated college. He purchased this property in 2005 when it was an almond farm and planted the cherry orchard on it in 2010.
We currently reside in Denver, Colorado for work-related purposes. We love exploring the world and enjoy meeting new people with diverse interests. Our farm is a quiet, peaceful place centrally located in California.
