Restaurants and downtown shopping area nearby. We have provided a Chico area map as well as restaurant guide/menus and coupon book for local restaurants.
Lower Bidwell Park is close, just a bike ride away or 5 minute car ride. Upper Park is 10 - 12 minutes by car and beautiful. Chico has a great Farmers Market every Saturday morning and also on Thursday evening through the summer. The vendors offer local produce which is amazing. There are also several flower vendors that sell some gorgeous bouquets. A smaller market sets up on Wednesday mornings in the summer near Trader Joes. Happy to give suggestions for activities and recommendations for restaurants.

Please be mindful of WATER use as we are limited due to the drought. A SMALL dog is ok IF notified before booking. We have cats so do NOT allow large dogs. There is no fenced yard so if bringing a SMALL dog be aware of this. Please INFORM us if bringing a pet.
Interaction with Guests
Greeting upon arrival and happy to answer any questions about the house or the area. Chat a bit but respectful of your privacy. We are not intrusive but friendly.
Proximity close to campus and downtown yet a quiet, safe area on the outskirts of town. There is an almond processing plant across the street that operates in September and October into first week or so of November. The huller goes 24/7 and sounds like a fan going when outside. The windows are double paned and you do not hear it when inside. Guests have said that it is not an issue.
Several taxi companies to call and also nearby bus service. Uber service also available. 20 minute pleasant walk to town. Chico is bike friendly, so if bringing a bicycle it is enjoyable to bike the area or throughout the park.
Other Things to Note
Most of the guests have noted that the cottage/house is larger than it appears in the photos. All the rooms are spacious. The dwelling is approximately 1150 square feet in size.
Please no smoking inside. Outside on porch is ok. Please turn off heat/cooling unit upon leaving. We are in a very serious drought. Again, please be mindful of water use. IF staying 5 NIGHTS or more the washer/ dryer is available. These are getting a bit old so please check with us on a few tips for their use. Thanks.
