My home is close to Sac State and Sac city (1 mile if you bike). If you are in town visiting a student there, or in town for a work trip, this is a great location. You're welcome to use the kitchen. River access is within walking distance. The front of the house is a covered patio with a BBQ- you are welcome to host people for dinner there if you talk to me ahead of time and we arrange it. Dogs are welcome outside. I have a very friendly cat.
