Our cozy studio cottage really is close to everything, located on a private lane between Arden Park/Wilhaggen, two of Sacramento's most desirable neighborhoods. It is centrally located and within easy walking distance of the American River and its wonderful bike trail. CSUS (Cal State University Sacramento) is 5 minutes away, a 2 mile straight line down Fair Oaks Blvd. There is a picturesque 9-hole golf course bordering the river about a mile down the road. Downtown Sacramento and the state capitol are about five miles, also on the Fair Oaks/J St route. There are dozens of restaurants within a one-mile radius, from exceptionally fine dining to great local greasy spoons and everything in-between. There are excellent Whole Foods, Save Mart, Safeway and Raley's grocery stores within a two-mile radius.
The well-appointed cottage is about 500 square feet and very quiet. It's nestled under numerous tall oaks and next to a green belt. When you are there, it is hard to believe you are in the middle of a bustling city.
The fully-equipped kitchen has a four-burner stove, fridge, microwave, dishwasher, Cuisinart and French press coffeemakers and toaster. Also included are dinnerware and flatware, linen napkins, a variety of pots, pans and bakeware, candles, wine glasses and a selection of spices and oils.
The cottage is set back about 300 feet from the main road and is nice and secluded. Throw open the full french doors to the redwood deck under a canopy of oak trees in this gorgeous, rustic setting. It's perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine or dining al fresco under the stars. The deck has a table, chairs, and lighting and usually a view of the family of wild turkeys that has been walking through most evenings for generations.
The cottage naturally stays very comfortable due to its location under the trees, but has an oversized central heating and air unit to insure your comfort any time of year.
There is a flat-panel LCD television, Comcast cable and WiFi network for your laptop and mobile devices.
The walls are adorned with classic Fillmore and Avalon Ballroom posters and handbills and other music-themed art. A selection of books, including many about music, music art and the music business are also on hand.
The full-sized Murphy bed comes with down comforter and pillows, with hypoallergenic bedding available on request. A single-wide futon or deluxe queen air mattress are available for a third person, also upon request. We also have two Graco Pack-n-Plays just in case some little kids show up. There is also an iron, ironing board and a hair dryer.
The tiled bath has a shower with shampoo, soaps and a selection of toiletries.
There is a washer-dryer, laundry detergent and stain treatment liquid.
The cottage shares a covered carport with a larger house on the property with ample additional parking available on the lane.
It is a simple but genuinely charming place to stay.

Had a fantastic stay! Were greeted with a beautiful bouquet of roses, hypoallergenic comforter, well-curated kitchenware & fridge stuff. everything was easy to find
and simple and clean. there's a beautiful back deck under towering trees and a sweet little creek. also lovely- the sound of crickets at night there.
This cottage was everything Mike said it was! My boyfriend and I stayed three nights and it was the perfect home away from home. Mike was the perfect host; quick to respond and help with anything I needed. He even left us with a Romantic wine and candle setting, along with a few breakfast starters for our stay. I will definitely look into this place next time I need one in Sacramento and would recommend it to anyone coming this way for a few days!
We had a great week in Mike's cottage. Our guests who stayed in it didn't want to leave. Mike is an incredibly accommodating and gracious host. We can't wait to come back!
Perfect cottage for me as I was staying for a month to work in town. The neighborhood is wonderful and quiet, the accommodations perfect for 1-2 people. Mike was a gracious host, and very responsive to any minor questions or concerns I had. I have already been recommending this cottage to my coworkers who will be taking similar trips to Sacramento in the future.
