Great location

We offer a organic breakfast with eggs from our chickens upon request. Our straw bale, adobe, solar and sustainable home is warm and inviting. Our ranch has fruit trees and a vegetable garden. We have a lovely view overlooking our lake and the mountains. The location is perfect for wine tasting in Murphys, concerts at Ironstone, site seeing in the gold country, hiking in the Sierra, playing in high alpine lakes, and skiing in Bear Valley. We are about half way between Yosemite and Lake Tahoe.
