    Description

    Greetings from Auburn, California, in the Sierra Foothills, the self-proclaimed Endurance Capital of the World! We are a family of 4+ including me and my husband, our two 15 year old sons and fur and feathered friends - 2 dogs, 2 cats and 6 chickens. We live on 26+ acres overlooking Lake Folsom and surrounding Foothills. Although it is a country setting, we are very close to I80, Auburn, Folsom and 30-45 minutes to Sacramento and 1.5 hours to Lake Tahoe. If you like the outdoor life, this is a good place to be. We are looking for help with various projects including building an organic garden, tending chickens, general gardening, building and maintaining trails, clearing vegetation, collecting and cutting firewood, general maintenance, housekeeping and organizing

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    When our kids were younger we had au pairs help with their care and we all enjoyed the cultural exchange. Our au pairs came from the Czech Republic, Thailand and Brazil. We'd like to continue the tradition. We can help you with English, exchange information about our respective cultures, food and general life.

    Accommodation

    We have a small room with a private bath that is detached from the main house. Our family sauna is also in the room so it is not 100% private but you are welcome to use the sauna too. The shower is outdoor but very private. If you prefer, there is a shower you can use inside the main house. The room is next to a covered patio, BBQ, outdoor fireplace, swimming pool and you are welcome to use this too.

    What else ...

    Although we live in the country, we are close to I80, the town of Auburn, Folsom, Sacramento and Lake Tahoe is a 1.5 hour drive up the mountain. Having your own transportation is a definite plus here but we are open to occasionally giving you a lift.
