CALIFORNIA OLD GOLD COUNTRY GETAWAY~! A generous Berner Lover has offered a wonderful prize for our 2016 BARC Fundraiser - the use of her “Guesthouse” about nine miles outside of Nevada City, CA for midweek or a long weekend. The property is on a couple of forested acres with great hiking, biking, and resting and just an hour drive from Tahoe, Roseville or Sacramento. The Guesthouse sleeps two on a pull out couch in the living room and two on a queen in the Loft. It has a full bathroom and kitchen. There is a deck and a garage, plus the added bonus of the company of two loving Bernese in the main house. You will enjoy the lovely city of Nevada City and Grass Valley with historic downtowns and many artists and musicians around the Yuba River area. The winner and the owner will work out the details of the Getaway.

Donated by an Anonymous Berner Lover

Winner: Georgia Wilson
