    We stayed in the Carriage Loft. Modern, clean and very comfortable. No detail overlooked to ensure happy guests. But that’s just part of the story. The setting, with the main house, pool, pool cottage, and park-like landscaping, is absolutely beautiful!

    We really enjoyed staying at this property. The pool is absolutely amazing. It's really large and while you do have to share the pool with the guests from the other rental, it's large enough to enjoy with multiple groups. The housing is a bit tight though if there are 4 people in a party but it should be fine if you expect to spend most of your day outside by the pool or elsewhere. We also really loved that Chick Fil'A was only a mile away. It saved us from cooking! And the owners are sweet and checked in on us when we were out by the pool. Overall, a great stay!

    This was an awesome way to get out of the house for a few days and enjoy the fresh air. The property and garden were lovely. Our hosts we were welcoming and warm. We spent our time lounging by the pool and hiking near the American River. Don’t forget to say hello to the pony next door and the pigs and chickens. My kids want to know when we can go back. Thanks again for a wonderful stay.

    Wonderful cottage! Gorgeous views, lots of light, super comfortable. Nice neighborhood, central to town, 1 mile out! My grandchildren were able to visit one afternoon and swim in the spa while my South Dakota relatives played cards on the pool deck. Bed super comfortable. Coffee great. Just don't bring a low car...speed bumps on the way in scraped the bottom of the BMW no matter how slow I went. I would absolutely choose this over a hotel room!

    This was our third year at the Carriage Loft apartment and we had a wonderful time. It's right in Auburn, but you feel like you are vacationing in the country. There are pigs and chickens and a cow to entertain you, along with spacious grounds and a beautiful pool and covered patio for dining. Our son and his family came everyday to swim and bbq with us. The pool is refreshing and the toddler pool is such a bonus! The 2 and 4 year old spent most of their time there, while the 6 year did cannonballs off the diving board! The apartment has a full kitchen and a very comfortable bed. Thanks to our hosts for providing a wonderful place to make family memories!.

    We stayed in the Carriage Loft for 4 nights and had a wonderful time. The loft was clean and the bathroom had a great selection of hair products and body wash. The bed was very comfortable and my husband took advantage of the cozy robes for our use during our stay. The pool is fantastic and there is even a toddler pool which our 3 year old granddaughter loved. We barbequed and ate outside by the pool every night. The only drawback was the lack of non breakable serveware to use for food. We would definitely return for another visit!

    We attended a wedding in Forest Hill this past weekend and I thought we'd try something different in our lodging choice. I booked this rental through We were thrilled with our decision. First of all, you can see that the Vaughn's take great pride in their property. The grounds were beautiful. The Carriage Loft that we stayed in was just adorable. We were welcomed with fresh flowers from the garden and a dozen farm fresh eggs. There is a full kitchen if you want to prepare your meals. If not, this property is located fairly close to historical downtown Auburn which is also a town worth exploring. I wish we could have stayed longer as it was a nice peaceful departure from the hustle and bustle of the city. If you're ever in this area and are looking for a place to stay, I would highly recommend this place. We will definitely be returning.

    This review is very belated, but not because our stay wasn't great. The property was beautiful and my family enjoyed our stay very much. We had come to the area to do some rafting, but due to the wild fires we were unable to do so. We were EXTRA grateful for the beautiful pool once we found that out. No need to try to come up with a fill in plan, just hang around the pool and relax. Our kids enjoyed visiting the animals and the fresh eggs made us feel like we were at home. Fresh eggs are amazing. If we are in this area again we would definitely plan to stay here!

    The Carriage Loft is secluded and quite; situated on a spectacular property with manicured gardens, pool and hot tub, a few contained farm animals, and frogs that ribbit at night. Access was simple and we were delighted with our two night stay. Upon arrival we quickly dug into the delicious baked goodies the owner left for us. There were fresh eggs from the resident chickens in the refrigerator. The rental was clean and well stocked with everything we could have needed from kitchen utensils to shampoo and conditioner to towels and washer and dryer. The bed was amazingly comfortable. I would highly recommend the Carriage Loft and will try to stay here if in the area again.

    This is a lovely, modern apartment above a 4-car garage. It is long and narrow with great views of the farm and pool. The kitchen provided us with every convenience we could need. Directions to the house and where to park were clear and given to us in advance. In the apartment there were no directions about what to do when leaving and I had to refer back to the information I got when I had made the reservation. I specifically rented this because it was the only place I could find that would take 5 people. That said, there are only 2 beds. We put the 3 children together in the very large sleeper-sofa and it did work with some sleep being lost over who slept in the middle and the usual chatter when you put that many children in close proximity. Though these were not my ideal sleeping conditions, I was grateful to find a place that would sleep 5 people. Because the apartment is narrow, there really is no good place to put a cot. For my needs the long hallway with built-in desk and closets might be better used for bunk beds! There was a distracting amount of noise outside from frogs and other country life, but this was remedied at night by locking the windows. Auburn was a great location for us to get around north Gold Country. In a weekend we saw these state parks: Empire, Malikoff Diggins, Marshal Gold Discovery, and Goldbug. Auburn has a great Saturday farmers market which started our day. There is an historic downtown with enough shopping and restaurants that we ended our day here too.

    I've stayed at both the carriage and pool house and both are quite nice. They have a beautiful landscape to look at with a few farm animals to visit--and farm fresh eggs every time. The place is clean, and they even cleaned up the hot tub right after a storm so that we could still enjoy that if we wanted in the evening. Definitely recommend staying here. Thanks so much for the hospitality!

    My husband and I traveled to Auburn to run in a race on the Western States course. The loft was perfect for the two of us. The kitchen was well appointed and had all the necessary tools for a serious cook (something I can't say for many VRBO places we've stayed). The bed was comfy and we enjoyed curling up with blankets on the couch. The only negative is the small shower with not so great water pressure. I missed having a tub but it would not be a deal breaker for renting this loft again. Also I would not recommend for anyone with physical limitations due to have several stairs to go up and down with luggage to access the loft.

    I hesitate to give the kind of praise this place deserves because the next time my family wants to spend the weekend at this magnificent Cottage Pool House, it will be booked full a year ahead and cost ten times as much. Still would be worth every penny! It felt like a five-star resort. The pool and Jacuzzi were amazing, as was the outdoor living room. The peaceful vineyard setting came complete a pair of grass-eating goats and a rooster letting me know sunrise was upon us. The guesthouse itself had a certain plushness I have never encountered at another VRBO. Finding fresh eggs from their chickens in the fridge was the cherry on top. Wow and thank you.

The view out of the bedroom window, and in fact, all of the windows in the loft were awesome! We loved the country feel of this property with the crops growing, the cow named Bell, a giant pig, and the many chickens. Auburn had a classic car show which we attended and the Tevis Cup was being held there which is a difficult 100-mile equestrian endurance ride. We enjoyed getting acquainted with Auburn which is a great city which we had never visited before but we will again! Thank you for sharing such a wonderful loft with us!

    My husband and I stayed at Bob and Jeanne's Pool House for 3 nights. They have two places they rent at this property. We chose the Pool House since it has an expansive private deck that overlooks the pool and pastures. This house was very bright, immaculately clean, and presented like a 5 star hotel. Plush bed padding, extra soft sheets, pool towels, slippers, extra bath towels to name a few. The spa can hold up to 14 people. But we were the only guests in the hot tub. This property is on 5 acres and the owners have a cow, 2 pigs, 40+ chickens, and 3 gentle collies. We had fresh eggs upon arrival and given extras to bring home. Bob and Jeanne are warm and friendly and passionate about serving their guests which is reflected in all the details in the house. There is a reason why all the reviewers give this place a 5 star rating and I give it a 5+. Cherie and Abe, Pacifica, California

    My husband & I love VRBO when we travel and this is our favorite. Bob & Jeanne and so kind and thoughtful. We always have a dozen farm fresh eggs waiting in the fridge. My husband loves all the fresh herbs, lemons, oranges and whatever is ripe from the garden, depending on the time of year. Our adult kids and two granddaughters visit us on the farm and love to see the chickens, pigs and cow, along with swimming in the pool and great BBQ. The loft is very well decorated. Love having a stacked washer/dryer in the loft. The bedroom over looks both the garden and the far end of the pool. It's very quite as the property is down a long private driveway. There is nearby shopping, restaurants and more within 5 minutes. We have stayed her twice and plan on returning whenever we are in town visiting the grandchildren. And Jeanne leaves the most lovely fresh flower arrangements in the loft when you arrive. Always a great time when we visit. It's right in Gold Country, so lots to do including museums and wineries.

    We just stayed in Bob and Jeanne's wonderful carriage loft on their large property. The time we spent there can be summed up as Phenomenal! We were exploring the area for the first time as a possible relocation destination from the Northeast. Suffice it to say, the winter of 2013-2014 has finally broken us, and we'd like to live somewhere warmer. This property was a perfect base for exploring Auburn and the surrounding areas. We were greeted by the Vaughan's son who showed us around the loft and the various amenities. The interior is nicely decorated and fully set up with all the conveniences of home. The loft overlooks a beautiful pool in the backyard with the other rental property at the far end. The house and grounds are very attractive with well-manicured landscaping and some wonderfully scented honeysuckle (I think) along the path to the loft entrance. Bob and Jeanne were very friendly, and we spoke with them at length a few times during our visit. They gave us a lot of information about the surrounding area and were interesting to talk to. They have a nice farm on site with vegetable gardens, pigs and chickens. The piglets were running all around while we were there, and they are so fun to watch! We explored Auburn, Grass Valley and Nevada City while we were out there, and we enjoyed all of them. The further out from Auburn you get, the more bohemian it is, and we found some really nice places to go in while walking around Nevada City's downtown area. Everyone we talked to in those towns was enthusiastic about the area and highly recommended it for active adults who like running, cycling and adventure sports. We are convinced, and we hope to relocate later in 2014!

When I opened the door to the loft and walked upstairs I was amazed at how well-designed the space was. It had all the amenities and it was CLEAN. Nice paint, furnishings and décor made the place feel inviting, as well as the little touches like a coffee maker and grinder. There were fresh cut garden flowers in almost every room. So lovely. I will be staying here again for sure! Five Star!

    My husband and I had the pleasure of staying in the Carriage Loft for 2 weeks in early November. What a find! We had been traveling full time for 3 months, and have many different accommodations, but this topped them all. The gracious hosts who own this property created a beautiful oasis, with a second floor, self-contained apartment. The kitchen is fully stocked, and, to enhance our meals, we were invited to select herbs and fresh produce from the beautiful gardens on site. The bedroom is comfortable, and overlooks the meadows and pool/spa area. The furnishings were comfortable and tasteful. We were given maps and recommendations for local hikes, restaurants and entertainment. Our 2 weeks here went quickly, and we so did not want to leave. You will not be disappointed in selecting the Carriage Loft for your vacation travels. We loved it!

    This is truly one of the nicest properties that I have stayed at through There are two rental options - loft and a pool house. I have stayed at the loft on two separate trips and it is a very nice, clean, and exceptionally well decorated unit. There is a very comfortable and clean bed, as well as a comfortable separate living room and full kitchen. There is also laundry in the unit included with your stay! This unit beats any hotel room by 10 times, yet is affordable in the cost. The family that owns it lives on property in a separate house, and they are some of the nicest and most hospitable people that you will meet! I wouldn't stay anywhere else on a trip to Sacramento, Auburn, Roseville, or any of the nearby areas!

    This is the perfect place to stay if you want to cruise California, especially the Gold Country area. I used this as a working base to cover the famed 100 mile horse race, The Tevis. The pool was a wonderful way to cool off after scouting locations and chasing horses along a hot, dusty trail. The owners are wonderfully accommodating and furnished fresh vegetables from their garden. The only problem is the studio books EARLY, so make plans as soon as possible. I plan to stay again next summer. I have not found anything nicer.

    When we arrived at the Carriage Loft it was so much more than we imagined. It was one of the best places we have ever stayed! It rivals any 4 or 5 star hotel by far in my opinion and the best place to stay in the area. Bob and Jeanne's home and the property had an instant calming, peaceful effect. The lush gardens, soft clucking chickens, and gentle breeze were almost too good to be true. It is clear that they take great care of their place as the kitchen is stocked with Sur La Table cookware (a dream for the home cook!), nice coffee and espresso maker stocked with whole coffee beans, high quality sheets, and even a washer/dryer. They are more than generous to share the hand picked vegetables from their garden and fresh eggs from the henhouse. The pool, jacuzzi, outdoor fireplace, grills and smoker are a cook and outdoor entertainer's dream. We spent hours by the pool, relaxing in the jacuzzi and only wish there was more time to enjoy the rest of the amenities. Bob and Jeanne are simply lovely. We never want to leave! This is definitely on our list of top stays and will definitely be planning another visit as soon as possible.

    This was a beautiful stay. The owners, Jeanne and Bob, were warm, friendly, and helpful. The carriage loft apartment was pristine, with wonderful cooking supplies, comfortable bed, nice evening breeze blowing through (although complete AC available for those who want it). Jeanne and Bob shared fresh eggs and veggies from their garden, we awoke to birds singing, looking out on a beautiful, well kept garden and landscaping. Auburn is not normally on our beaten path, but we will look for a reason to come again! There's a great Saturday Farmer's Market in Old Town Auburn!

    My husband and I stayed at the Auburn Carriage Loft for 4 days!! SO relaxing, SO beautiful, SO refreshing!! Bob and Jeanne and their family are so gracious and hospitable. They also give you your own space and privacy. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool area and were extremely blessed with warm weather and soothing breeze. Let's just say the pool area offers way more than a pool, but we won't spoil the surprises. SUPER nice, for sure! We caught a great stretch of 70-90 degree weather, which added to the pleasure, especially since we live in a much cooler climate. Their Country Gentleman atmosphere was gorgeous, yet the farm animals fit right in going about their daily business. We even got to enjoy some fresh, organic, free-range eggs! Oh, and the garden(s)...Wow! We will definitely go back again someday! Check out the Pool Cottage too, but we have 1st dibs on our return trip! The location is great. A mile from a very nice grocery story, just a few miles from Old Downtown Auburn, wineries, etc. An easy connection to Hwy. 80 back to Sacramento area made it convenient to visit friends in the area, as well. Many thanks to Bob an Jeanne...both such with ease and delight as they welcomed us to their WONDERFUL place! See you next time! A personal note for Bob: I really enjoyed playing ping-pong with him. He is a most gracious host!

    my husband and I stayed here for one night and had a wonderful time. the hosts were welcoming and let us wander around the farm. the carriage loft was clean and perfect for a little getaway we were seeking. the owners gave us a half dozen eggs from the chickens and offered us to take advantage of their you pick policy and pick what we wanted from their garden. it really couldn't have been any nicer. we made some of the eggs for breakfast in the loft's kitchen which had every utensil and pan you could possibly need.

    Thank you, Jeanne and Bob, for a very comfortable and relaxing three-day getaway! We loved the fine linens, comfortable bed, gourmet kitchen and cookware, beautiful pool and bbq/outdoor eating area, your fresh eggs,veggies, herbs, and melons. It was also wonderful to see your pigs and chickens and pet your friendly dogs and cat. We enjoyed touring a few of the local wineries (Wise Villa, Mt. Vernon, and Vina Castellano), and the quick trip to the Bel Air/Raley's Market for our nightly barbeque. Most of all we appreciated your hospitality! We have already recommended your place to several friends. Next time I want to stay in the pool house, as it's even closer to the pool and has a lovely deck and bigger and sunnier living room. Thanks again for a delightful stay!

    We stayed two nights in the carriage house and had a wonderful time. The accomodations were spotless, the bed was comfortable, the kitchen was well equipped; we had everything we could possibly need in the cottage. The grounds are spectacular and beautifully maintained with a lovely pool and spa.. The owners, Bob and Jeanne are delightful and gave us fresh eggs from their hennery and watermelon from their garden. We will definitely stay again!

    My husband & I spent a wonderful relaxing weekend at the Carriage house in Auburn last weekend! Owners Bob & Jean have a beautiful property and we enjoyed the views, fresh eggs from their chickens and some fresh veggies from their garden. Although there was another family staying in the other rental,there is an abundance of space and plenty of privacy. We had such a great time we are hoping to plan a trip in the future & bring along our daughters & their families! We highly recommend this rental. Good for a romantic get-away & also would be a great place for family.

    We had an absolutely fantastic time staying in Carriage House in this property. It is perfectly appointed, quiet, and has all the small but important touches like fresh flowers from the garden and fresh eggs from the chickens. The pool was warm and clear and HUGE and quiet...the spa was wonderful. Our dog loved playing with the beautiful collies on the property and was bummed to head back to the city. Can't wait to get back!

    The property is gorgeous. The family is extremely friendly and helpful. They have fresh eggs and it is very kid friendly. The pool is spectacular. The animals on the property are lovely. Why would you stay in a hotel when you can relax in luxury. The surrounding hills are also beautiful. I'll be back.

    We stayed in the Carriage Loft for 5 nights while visiting our kids and grandkids in Auburn. What a beautiful place! The whole property is lovely with well-cared-for landscaping! The fall flowers and colored leaves were still great in November! We were so very comfortable in the Carriage Loft with plenty of room for the 2 of us. We didn't need to use the kitchen except for breakfasts, but it was complete with full size appliances and all the utensils you could want. It was so great to have a nice place to relax after busy days with our family! It was too cool for using the pool, but it was beautiful just to look at! The views out the windows in all directions were great! And we really appreciated the warm hospitality of Bob, Jeannie, and their kids. They made us feel almost like family! We would recommend this lovely place to anyone wanting a quiet clean comfortable friendly place to stay while in Auburn!

    At the end of a paved lane off of the main road, there is a little cluster of a carriage loft, house and pool house nestled against the pastoral views. The views, the buildings, the amenities all blend perfectly together. You can briefly step a little bit out of the busy world around you and into a beautiful quiet sanctuary complete with fields, romping collies, chickens and pigs. As much as you feel like you've stepped into the country side, the loft and pool area have every technological perk. Do you want to pre-heat the hot tub with the iphone left in your room? Go for it. Do you want to watch 3d flat screen tv while sitting by the outdoor gas fireplace? No problem. Do you want to DVR a show while you shower? Easy. We explored each day. It's a quiet area, don't expect a hustling bustling city. But if you want to eat good food, see a tiny museum, watch glass blowing, go wine tasting, run wild outdoors... this is the place for you. Expect the owners to check in with you, to be friendly and happy that you are happy. Their son likes to ride his bike in the paved area - he'll wave and say hi as you walk by. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer... so just please don't try to take our spot the next time we want to go back!

    What a hidden Gem the carriage loft is! Bob and Jeanne have done an exceptional job at creating the perfect retreat. I was tired and ready for a good night sleep after working all week and then flying into Sacramento and beginning my journey to Auburn. I was so excited when I pulled into this gorgeous property in the countryside. It was welcoming and everything I hoped for in a country stay. The loft was so nicely furnished and every detail was seen to. I had fresh flowers, a bottle of wine and they even went out and bought a new iron and ironing board for me because I requested one. In the refridge was fresh farm eggs from their chickens , fresh jam and an assortment of gourmet coffee's and teas.The cupboards were all nicely stocked with everything you need to prepare a nice meal, they even have a jennair cooktop with a grilling section! WOW!! My bed was so comfortable and the pillows and duvet of all such top quality. Everything in this loft is the best..plush linens, super soft towels, great electronics! An IPHONE for your use.. Just great. The views are beautiful looking into pasture land and the pool area. Waking up to this daily was a real treat. You get roosters too! I loved it. The family makes it special from Bob and Jeanne's hospitable personalities , A nice blend of the right amount of privacy, to hospitable friendliness and help in whatever you need to their really nice children , sweet pets and farm animals. It was a treat to stay there and I will definately go back time and time again! The location is great and the accomodation perfect! Oh and get this.. Darling Ladies and Mens key chains by Coach..Perfection right down to the key chains. I am staying in their pool house next time, I will let you know what that is like after that stay! I dont think you could go wrong with either accomodation. Thank you again Bob and Jeanne for a great stay.

    My sister, brother-in-law and I stayed last month at Bob and Jeanne's vacation rentals. I was in the Carriageloft, and the other two stayed in the Poolhouse. It was so convenient to have these two units in close proximity to each other. Both places were wonderful, and it is very obvious that these two have made an extraordinary effort to ensure that their guests enjoy their stay in comfort. Both rentals are furnished in lovely style, with amenities galore. They had our favorite beverage in the frig when we arrived, and also had fresh flowers and vegetables from their lush gardens awaiting us. Too many special touches to count! The grounds are spectacular! Bob and Jeanne were well organized, easy to work with through the reservation process, and so friendly - you feel like you are instant members of their family, yet they respect your privacy. We were in the area for a sad occasion (our cousin's memorial service), and the peaceful surroundings and lovely accomodations were a very welcomed respite for the three of us, and allowed us to share precious time together. This is a very special place to stay if you are in the Auburn area. Thanks for everything Bob and Jeanne! Anne

    What a cozy nest. I spent a couple of weeks here while my home was being remodeled. It was delightful, as were my hosts. It was a wonderful respite, fully equipped so I could live and work in comfort. I would also recommend this to anyone looking for a get away in an amazing location; spend the day hiking the canyon, swimming the rivers...then come home to this nest. It is small but fully equipped and you will have access to all of the amazing outdoor amenities on this property so you can continue to enjoy the outdoors, the pool, hot tub, the vegetable garden... The view from the bedroom window will have you rising early. I stayed in this loft and the pool house. I loved them both, but for my purposes, I found this one more accommodating. It was closer to my car for continuous comings and goings. My friends and family loved the pool house. It was great for entertaining. I will definitely be recommending both of these finds to friends and family and anyone needing temporary housing or a great get away.

    Excellent Place to Stay for any reason! Very Clean, Classy, and Comfortable at a great price!

    The Carriage Loft is FABULOUS! My wife and stayed here on our wedding night, and ended up liking it so much that we rented it out for the first 6 weeks of our marriage. The family that owns the Carriage Loft lives in their home on the same property, and the loft sit above their garage, which offers ultimate privacy. They are very kind and responded quickly to any tiny need we had while staying at the Carriage Loft, as well as reached out with the offer to call them if there was anything we needed. There are horses that you can see from the bedroom window, a wonderful pool and spa that can be used at your leisure, and a ping pong table in the pool house for guest use! The location is great, as it’s far enough away from town to have a peaceful, country feel, but close enough where you can go to several restaurants, grocery stores, and the like within 2 minutes. It’s also about an hour to North Star at Tahoe and many other premium ski resorts. We like the area so much, we're considering moving nearby! The loft itself is such a treat to stay in. It’s a cozy, spacious 1 bedroom/1 bath with hardwood floors, granite counter tops, all new appliances of high quality, beautiful dark cherry wood style cabinets, with satellite TV and state of the art climate control. The furniture is classy but comfortable. The bed is new and the bedding is superb. The “little things” make a huge difference as well: The towels are nice and fluffy, the sheets are comfortable, kitchenware, pots, and pans are all very nice quality. Brands of these items are Sur le Table, Pottery Barn, Cuisenart, Crate and Barrel, and the like. It’s very comfortable to cook at the Carriage Loft, and easy to clean up, as there is dishwasher that works very well. The fact that there is a new stackable wash/dryer is very handy as well, so you don’t have to worry about not having enough clothes or over packing. The Carriage Loft is a great place for a romantic weekend (or longer) get away, visiting Gold Country, a place to stay while visiting relatives who live in this area (Grass Valley, Nevada City, Roseville, Auburn, etc.), or just a plain old visit to get a reasonably priced few nights of peace and quiet. I would highly recommend the Carriage Loft and plan to stay here again, as well as recommend it to friends and family. Enjoy your stay!
