Conveniently located off Highway 49 in California’s Gold Country, on a historic parcel known as Trabucco Gardens.
During the Gold Rush days, Trabucco Gardens was a parcel of land cultivated as a vegetable garden, while Forty-Niners discovered gold in the area. The historic rock walls on property mark the perimeter where the garden once grew.
The joy of discovery continues here today. Now you can discover the vast riches our universe has to offer. Trabucco Gardens, located on 17 acres, provides you with a grand opportunity to stargaze using the observatory telescope. The robotic GO-TO telescope is available during your stay, and included in the rental cost. The open, rural nature of the property, which is considered “above the fog and below the snow”, provides you with many clear night opportunities, even in winter.
