Guests can enjoy many common areas at the Lodge. A large deck complete with umbrellas and tables provides guests with soaring views of the Sierra Foothills and some High Sierra snow-covered peaks. Located on the Eastside of the tall expansive log Lodge, the deck becomes shaded in the summer by late afternoon creating a pleasant retreat from the hot summer sun. At night our guests gaze out and up into the an outrageous star-filled sky that only our rural foothill setting away from city lights can offer.
The Great Room with its high ceiling log architecture and warming fire become the ideal place to sit at the lengthy Irish pine table to play cards/games with new-found friends or make music on the turn of the century upright piano. The perimeter of the Great Room is fitted with comfortable bench seating with lots of pillows.
Another place of retreat is the Overlook where comfy sofas beckon guests to relax a moment and either enjoy the many options of Dish Network satellite TV with all the premium movie channels, a video movie from our extensive selection or simply socialize. (Remote headphones are available for late night movie watchers so the other guests are not disturbed).
Off the Great Room is a viewing deck outside under the stars with a new spa. The powerful jets in special arraignments make the ultimate water-massage for your entire body. Picture yourself up to your neck in warm water on a crisp fall or winter night taking in the incredible night sky from our hilltop.
Situated in the middle of 40 acres, guests can explore both vineyards and woodland casually or in vigorous exercise. Many guests find fun and exercise swimming in our 25 meter lap pool (usually warm enough between April and early October).
As you can see, regardless of the California foothill weather, our guests have numerous opportunities to relax or mingle outside their room accommodations.
