Get away with sweeping views of pine and valley from the comfort of your sitting room and bedroom. It’s only a 2 hour drive from the Bay Area but feels a world away. And oh, the stars at night, you must see it to believe it! Go skiing or boarding at Kirkwood, or get cozy with the rustic wood fire stove. Amador county has much to offer even in the winter. Snowshoeing, hiking, 4X4, cycling, rock climbing, wine tasting and antique shopping at historic gold rush towns are all at your doorstep.
