Old Town Hideaway - nestled in the heart of California's Gold Country

Auburn, California

Renovated 900 sq ft 2 bedroom 1 bath fully furnished home nestled in the heart of the California's Gold Country and the Sierra Foothills. Stroll or take a short 1 minute drive to historic Old Town Auburn. Enjoy scenic views with beautiful sunsets from your deck while you barbeque. Close to the Placer Wine Trail, American River Canyon, Amtrak Capital Corridor train station with daily round trips to the Bay. Conveniently situated halfway between San Francisco and Reno right off of Interstate 80.

When we decided to become a host we asked ourselves what kind of a place would we want to stay in. The answer to that question is represented behind the front door. Large, comfortable open living room with quality furniture. A large screen smart television with HD channels. A spacious kitchen with sleek lines and high end appliances was a must. Bedrooms with the finest mattresses available, luxurious pillows and cozy linens for a relaxing night of sleep were required amenities. A spa quality shower and bathroom also topped our list. All this is packed inside this lovely home in a safe and peaceful neighborhood.
We have strived to deliver a home you will want to return to many many times and one that will set the bar high for what an VRBO should be like.
Our goal, as hosts, is to provide you with all you should need to have a relaxing stay.

    We were pleasantly surprised when we walked in the door. It's a cute place and Katie thought of everything to make our stay more enjoyable. We highly recommend it and we'll be staying here again when we pass through Auburn in the future.

    This is such a great place to stay in Auburn. Every detail has been thought of. We thought it was nicer than a hotel. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen is fantastic, the bathroom is fully stocked. It is a wonderful retreat - highly recommend.

    I was impressed with this home from the moment I walked through the door. The house was impeccably clean, cozy, well decorated and felt homey. There was plenty of coffee and creamer and a basket of quality snacks for us to enjoy. I can’t tell you how much we appreciated the snacks upon our arrival after a very long day. The house was stocked with every toiletry imaginable in case something was forgotten. I was impressed by the abundance of clean towels and pillows available. There is honestly nothing I can think of that would have made this home more perfect for me, my husband and three kids. We’ve stayed at many rental homes that we loved, but this one is probably the best overall. I wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again! I did have a bit of difficulty finding the home the first day. My GPS mapping app told me, “You have arrived” well before reaching the address. It was hard to see the addresses on many of the homes in the neighborhood. I kept driving and eventually arrived at this home which had the address clearly visible. Thank you for the enjoyable stay! Oh, I almost forgot...thank you for excellent bottle of local wine!!!

    I've been to Auburn twice now and have stayed at Kevin and Katie's place both times. The amenities are wonderful and beyond what most rentals provide (wine, oatmeal, snacks, shampoo & conditioner and assorted toiletries to name a few things). The place is clean and quiet and a short walk to Old Town Auburn. I'll definitely book again when I'm in the area for another trail race because I know I will get a good night's sleep!

    Everything we needed!

    Very lovely and comfortable space. Fairly easy to walk to Old Town Auburn-less than half a mile! Such sweet added touches such as a bottle of wine, coffee pods for the Keurig, extra bathroom toiletries if you forgot anything. I’m so picky about beds and I was very comfortable in the bed and loved the soft sheets! We would definitely consider returning if going back to this area.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Auburn. The house had every amenity you could ask for and was very clean and comfortable. The owners (Katie and Kevin) made it very easy to check in/out. Hats off to you and I would not hesitate to stay here again if our travels warrant!

    Perfect for a long weekend.

    Convenient Homeaway in Auburn

    This was the perfect homeaway for our weekend away. All we wanted to do was walk to Auburn Alehouse and spend time in Old Town. The walk was a bit more challenging than we thought, but not because of the house, rather the fact that the city is built on hills. The hosts were went out of their way to make us feel welcome and were very generous with snacks and a bottle of wine. I have stayed at more than a dozen homeaways and this was by far the most well stocked, well appointed house I have ever stayed in. They thought of our every need and it was there. We would love to return for another weekend away. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

    We enjoyed the cleanliness, hospitality, an location of this property. The owners were ready to help at any time and willing to even spend time with us to inform us of the town. They made sure to have a book with hikes, restaurants, and entertainment nearby. It was very cozy and enjoyable. Thanks for the goodies!!!

    My friend and I spent the weekend at the Old Town Hideaway while in the area for a race in the Auburn Recreation Area. The accommodations were very clean and we felt spoiled by the amenities (a giant basket full of snacks, coffee, oatmeal, etc.). There was also body wash, shampoo and conditioner in the shower (which many rentals don't have). We didn't take advantage of the bottle of wine left for us (since we were running), but it was certainly appreciated. The location is a convenient and short walk to Old Town. Thank you again for providing a wonderful place to stay!

    Such a lovely stay

    What a lovely stay. We were in the area for a wedding, but we also were able to walk to old town and get a nice hike in at Hidden Falls. This VRBO is such a nice home base with so much thought put into all the details for a comfortable stay. Thank you so much for your hospitality!

    We use house sharing whenever we travel. This unit was one of the best for its size. We were 3 adults and 3 children and cooked almost every meal in the house. The place was very clean, including everything in the kitchen, which is not always the case in rentals. The kitchen was very well stocked for a smaller unit and the owners included a basket of snacks for the kids and wine for the adults. Also for the kids was a Wi on big screen TV which helped on the damp days between family events in Auburn. Only potential negative if you are a light sleeper like I am is a few trains going through a ways away from the house with horns. No one else was bothered by this, my husband snored right on through :) We will definitely rent here again if back in Auburn area. Location is amazing for many venues in town.

    Loved it.

    We've stayed at multiple properties in the area, and all have been great. However, our experience at Katie and Kevin's place is our favorite. Conveniently located, well priced, updated very cozy, every guest need anticipated. We would definitely stay again.

    The snacks and wine were a great touch. The place was super clean and the kitchen was well stocked with all basic things. Kevin and Katie are in top of the game with this rental. When in the area we would certainly stay again.

    If you're planning to stay in Auburn, you couldn't do better than to stay with Kevin and Katie. The house (duplex) is large, immaculately kept, and extremely well equipped, down to Keurig coffee pods, a bottle of wine, and a basket of tasty snacks. It's quiet and private, even though it's not too far from the I-80. If you're traveling to Auburn, this is the place to stay.

    Great place to stay!

    We really enjoyed our weekend at Old Town Hideaway! It is close to old town, and not far from downtown either. It is newly remodeled, super clean and very comfortable. The owners Katie and Kevin are wonderful! They got back to us with information we requested before our arrival right away. We are considering retiring in Auburn in a few years so we asked Katie, who is a realtor, about the area and she was kind enough to spend some time with us going over specific areas in Auburn that might meet our needs. Truly enjoyed our time there!

    Very clean, chic and well appointed
