The Hatchery at Heather Hill

Vacation home in Pollock Pines with kitchen and patio
The "Hatchery" is a bright and cheery cottage nestled in the Sierra foothills.
Our guest house is attached to our main residence, on a 10.9 acre parcel, down a private road. We are here if you need us, but respect your privacy if not!
We are 12 miles from Placerville, 7 miles from Apple Hill and close to local wineries. For winter fun, we are 43 miles (drive time 1 hour) from Sierra at Tahoe.
Please note: We are NOT close to the freeway, and there are several windy roads in and out of our area.
The space
The cottage is a fully contained unit, with one bedroom and one bathroom, a full kitchen, and a laundry room with washer and dryer.
There is a sofa bed in the living room which sleeps two, in addition to the queen bed in the bedroom.
The Hatchery has the ability to sleep four, however it is best suited for two adult and two children, or three adults if one does not mind a sofa bed. We use a foam padding, but sofa beds are not always as comfy as a real bed!
Also, one must access the bedroom to reach the bathroom.
Breakfast foods will be provided and you will always find farm fresh eggs laid you for by our own 'girls'.
Feel free to stroll the grounds to say hello to the chickens and goats.
We have central heat and A/C, a microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, Keurig unit, and gas stove, in addition to the the laundry facilities.
We clean the space thoroughly between guest, but please note that we live in the country and dust is always trying to come in the door! Should you arrive and the space is not 100% up to your expectations, please message us right away so we can correct any issues. Our goal is to provide the best experience possible for you!
Air-conditioned accommodations at this vacation home offer coffee/tea makers and hair dryers. Rooms open to patios. Kitchens offer refrigerators, stovetops, microwaves, and cookware/dishes/utensils. Bathrooms include shower/tub combinations.

A wonderful weekend with amazing hosts
We had the perfect weekend here at this beautiful cottage and land. Kim and her husband were very friendly and lovely to chat with but respected our privacy when wanted. The goats and chickens were such a great addition to our weekend. Kim left fresh eggs in the fridge for our arrival, which was a nice touch. We would love to come back and would definitely recommend a stay here!

Anniversary getaway
We enjoyed our time away at this place! When we got to the site, we were charmed by the personalized note, bottle of bubbly, OJ, fresh eggs and bagels. Howard told us about some wonderful wineries which we enjoyed visiting! ! We enjoyed the sunset from the front porch! We look forward to returning to take advantage of the beautiful fire pit out back as well!

Our little French Countryside Getaway
This darling property was decorated with French Countryside décor. There were thoughtful touches throughout "The Hatchery" cottage rooms. The fresh eggs for breakfast were amazing. It was the perfect place for us to stay during our visit home to the area where our families used to live. The goats were friendly and sweet. We would love to stay there again! Thank you.
