Our home is located on a half acre lot with a country feel but only a mile from historic Folsom and the American River as it meets Lake Natoma. Our lovely small town in Northern California is away from the hustle and bustle but a short drive to Tahoe and San Francisco. Sacramento is approximately a 30 minute drive. This area offers outdoor recreation, shopping, restaurants and entertainment. Walking distance from our home is the historic area of Folsom, California which offers an area of botique shopping and small town bars with live music on the weekends. Folsom has a lot to offer for a young family and is considered one of the best cities for families in California. The beautiful American River travels right through town (less than a mile from our house) offers recreation, sport and leisure. Folsom Lake is also a short drive from home.

The neighbourhood is excellent. You will find yourself in a tranquil country setting but a short distance (aprox 1 mile) to historic Folsom and the American River. Just 1/3 of a mile away is a shopping center with some dining/cafe options and a small amount of shopping. There is a park a few hundred yards from the end of the driveway as well as a beautiful trail along Hinkle Creek. We are adjacent to bike paths and have access to many miles of bike/running paths. Folsom is a city developed to suit outdoor recreation. We are less than 2 hours from Lake Tahoe and San Francisco.

Getting around

There are some shops and cafes within walking distance (1/3 of a mile). The weekly Farmers Market and historic Folsom is less than 1 mile from our home and can be accessed by walk, bike or car. There is also a light rail train to access downtown Sacramento and surrounding areas.

We have two young children. We would likely find sitters for our pets and do not have any specific requirements at this time.
Member description
Hello, We are a family of 4 with two young children, ages 3 and 6 currently. We LOVE to travel and would love to find a way to do so more frequently and affordably! We love to travel to Europe and have a lot more to explore. We also enjoy Mexico for a shorter vacation and would love to explore Canada as well as so many other areas of the world! I look forward to using this site to share our beautiful city with the world and hopefully expolore more of the world with my family!
