My hubby & I stayed with Chris & Ros from 3 - 6 Feb 14 & had a great time with the elderly couple.
We reached their place around 7pm, after a rough ferry ride & shuttle service. The friendly couple walked us round the place ~ which has a living room for guests to mingle & surf web, a dining area, followed by the rooms. The rooms are away from the dining & living room, leaving guests with lots of privacy in their rooms. Our room was spacious & so cozy! Best of all, we enjoyed the sunrise daily from the balcony of our room. It is priceless to wake up every morning to the chirping of the birds & amazing views.
During one of the night, we decided to follow them to the community hall for dinner, where the kitchen run by volunteers. What a better way to soak the culture of the local! After dinner, Chris drove us round, hoping to catch some wild kangaroos & wallabies. And because I was having a cough, Chris kept away if he could prepare some drinks for me to soothe my throat. Another gesture from the warm elderly, we found our national flag hanging at their porch throughout our stay with them. :-)
Ros cooked our dinner on the last night of our stay. Yummy & nice presentation of the room as well! Wished we could stay longer.
If you are looking for a cozy place to stay @ American River, I strongly recommend Wanderers Rest. Chris & Ros care for their guest like parents do, and would go the extra mile to help their guests in any way. Not forgetting the wonderful views that will tear you away from the comfortable bed!
