Both 2 and 4-footed family members are welcome at this luxurious hilltop home with spectacular sunset views. The Dog & Pony Ranch is set on 60 scenic acres in Amador County gold country with swimming pond, hot tub, hiking trails and more! The Ranch is safely fenced so everyone can enjoy visiting the horses, llamas, and chickens (farm fresh eggs for guests).

The space

Escape to the beautiful Sierra foothills to enjoy nature from the comforts of a luxurious hilltop hideaway home with spectacular sunset views. It’s the best of both worlds with the privacy of 60 fenced rural acres (you are the ONLY guests on the property) plus the conveniences of being only a few miles from town (Pine Grove, Jackson and Sutter Creek), and below the snow pack at 2000' but a short drive to Kirkwood.

The romantic master bedroom has many special features including a new Cal King canopy bed, simple switch propane fireplace, and make-up vanity dressing area. The en-suite bath features a jetted deep soaking tub, double-sinks and double-shower with both rain head and handheld nozzles. The kitchen opens to a multi-use Rec Room with adjoining patio space and outside BBQ for convenient meal prep. The Rec Room also includes a new and very comfortable queen-sized sleeper sofa with a LaZ-Boy high-end foam mattress. Every room in the house is uncluttered with plenty of drawer/cabinet storage space for guests.

What makes our Dog & Pony Ranch so special are the features that have been designed for 4-footed family members who are not only “pets considered” but PETS WELCOMED! We chose tile and stained concrete throughout the house which is not only beautiful but also easily cleaned. Leather sofas and chairs repel dog hair and no delicate décor is below tail level. Artificial grass lawns are perfect for fetch sessions or agility training (jumps, weave, tunnel and teeter are available). There is a dog-door to the wrought iron fenced yard which provides secure fencing for pets to enjoy the top acre around the house. We’ve also field-fenced the perimeter of our 60-acre property so dogs can roam further off-leash. Miles of well-marked private hiking trails through the rolling hills (2200’ elevation) provide exciting deer, rabbit, turkey and other wildlife smells for your canines to explore with you. You can see the 6' wrought iron fence in the patio & hot tub photo with more photos and fence info on the Outdoor features page of our Dog & Pony Ranch website. Our dogs’ favorite feature is the large 50’x70’ swimming pond complete with a dock where our dogs practice their dock diving. Yes, people can enjoy the hiking and swimming too, but we think it’s so much better with man’s best friend by your side!

For additional human entertainment, we offer a 48” Smart TV in the Rec Room, and a portable MP3/bluetooth/radio stereo so you can enjoy your music in any room. There’s wireless high-speed internet (aka WiFi) and great indoor games include a ping-pong table, foosball and dart board. Outdoor games include a regulation width/height basketball court, horseshoe pit, football, Frisbee golf and bocce balls to play on the lawn. What guests rave about most though is our outdoor covered patios with hot tub and comfortable seating which provide a perfect place to watch the sun set over the neighboring vineyards, and gaze at the stars while listening to the crickets chirp.

If this sounds like the peaceful getaway you need, please contact us to make your reservation at the Dog & Pony Ranch!

We had such a great time at Dog & Pony Ranch! Beautiful house, beautiful location, wonderful host. We especially enjoyed stargazing from this property, it felt like we were on top of the world!

This property and its host were amazing, it was perfect for me and my husband and our dog. The grounds are beautiful, the house is stunning, and the pond, well the pond was our dogs heaven. He would be so tired at night that he would sleep like a rock. It was our 25th anniversary, and we plan to go back for our 30th. Thanks Cyndi - you made our weekend spectacular

There was a beautiful gift basket on the counter when we arrived. The whole place from the yard to the house to the garage was impeccably clean. It is definitely set up for pups and ours had a wonderful time. The sunsets were to die for. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. It has a full Safeway in Jackson, so no need to get groceries before hand and it has a couple of restaurants if you don't feel like cooking and want to pick up. Its a beautiful location for a family or a couple.

This was hands down one the the BEST getaways I have ever been on. The hosts were amazing and gave us plenty of details of what to expect before the stay and once you arrived they had a book full of helpful tips and activities for things around the property and town. Where we fully enjoyed our time, I think our dogs enjoyed it even more. They were able to run off leash until their hearts content. If you are looking for a place to disconnect from all of the hustle and bustle of "regular" life and just unwind for awhile, this this place is for you!!

Okay, I've stayed in some really awesome Airbnb's. I mean really awesome - one was perched on a cliff over looking waves crashing in a the shore below, another was nestled in the mountains of Big Sur providing a hardly believable panoramic view of the mountains. But this place is the absolute best Airbnb we have ever experienced. I mean from hot tubs, to beautifully manicured front and back, to basketball courts, ping-pong tables, to an incredible master bedroom, to two great and fully (and I mean fully) stocked kitchen with a trash compactor, to remarkable mountain views from all around the house and add to all this the house was impeccably clean, and so new the beautiful wood exterior had sap oozing from the pillars. All the appliances were brand new and top of the line and on and on and on to every last conceivable detail. All this the house, the property and the hosts, we can summarize in a single descriptive word: Spectacular! And as you would expect for anything this awesome, we only wish we could have extended our stay for a week. But alas, it was booked! If you have a choice, grab this place, it will not disappoint.
