Escalon is an older, rural Central Valley community. The only 24hour store is the gas station.
We are equal distance between San Francisco and Yosemite with many things to do nearby. Or you can relax at the cottage which is nestled between our small chicken orchard, the water fall and the main house. It has a small kitchenette you can cook in and your own driveway to park. It's a pretty quite neighborhood.
Tell us a bit about yourself when you request a stay.
We look forward to meeting you!
The cottage is a studio apartment with a mini kitchenette: microwave, small refrigerator, convection toaster oven, Krueg, and a Nuwave induction burner. There is a full size bed and a couch with a memory foam top for a 2nd bed if needed as a twin. The bathroom is fully stocked as well as the necessities for use of the kitchenette.
The cottage has a drop leaf table with 2 stools, a TV with an excellent HD antenna, a DVD player and an Apple tv that will allow you to access your netflix, Hulu, etc accounts.
The main yard includes a double swing like grandma’s, a fire pit, gazebo, and a beautiful waterfall with pond. This is also Peebody’s & MiMi's yard. Peebody, aka CoCo, is a Poochon. MiMi is a Cockapoo. They love people and will happily share the yard. The fire pit is available upon request.
The Chicken Orchard is a separate yard that has clean chicken free patio seating with a view of the hens, orchard and the wildlife it attracts. The “ladies” (chickens) are friendly and will come up to the fence to greet you.

The walkway from your parking spot and the cottage consists of stepping stones and pea gravel. You will have to carry your suitcases as they will not roll over it.

We are usually outside and either working in or enjoying the yards. You are always welcome to join us in either yard if we are out. Since there are 2 back yards you can also enjoy privacy if you choose.
I will enter your space if invited. I am more than happy to take a break and have a chat.
There is a binder in the cottage with information about attractions, restaurants and fun things to do. Maps are included and again I am more than happy to share information about these wonderful places.
Mr. Peebody is a PooChon and rules the main yard. He is friendly and gets very excited. Hence the name “Pee”body’s. His hyper personality will mellow within minutes. Please do not feed him scraps.

The "things" I love are: friends and family, good books, lovely gardens, nature, chocolate, baking, meeting people, adventures and writing.
Hosting is like being a grandparent. You get to visit, spoil them and then send them home. I love humor.
