Nevada City studio description

If you desire a get away that is rural, near a gem of a city for dining, ambling and entertainment, value quiet time to renew in a space that is attractively designed, enjoy star gazing, and scenic views from the hot tub, and don't want to be in a hotel or motel, you will love our place.

When it is warm, the Yuba River at Edwards crossing (8 minutes to swimming and hiking)is one of those scenic spots often given photo ops in magazines. The approach to swimming in the river there is not hard, but could be challenging if you have gait or balance problems. Other easy to access approaches to swim, such as at Bridgeport are not far away, and many easy and some demanding hiking and biking trails are also nearby. We have an orchard with many types of fruit trees and seasonal full gardens and over 50 different types of roses.

If it snows (2-4 times a year), all wheel drive is necessary for a few of the ups and downs in the well maintained road to and from Nevada City. We are about an hour drive to Truckee via highway 20, for sking and closer for other winter sports.. There numerous snow shoeing and cross county skiing spots up highway 20 and beyond, to Truckee and Lake Tahoe. We get 4 real seasons, and each one has its own charm. Sorry, no smoking or pets on the property. We have two poodles, but they do not go into the space, but do keep deer away. We also know the area, restaurants, etc. and can give you tips for what is currently happening.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About the owner: My wife and I want continue to make the ambiance better and better as we learn which plants thrive, and our roses, other flowers, and fruit trees mature. When we travel, we look for reasonably priced places which have been attractively developed, and wanted to provide the same for our guests. It is interesting how people have come to spend their anniversary celebrations.

                      Why the Owner Chose Nevada City:
                      The Bay Area and Santa Cruz was getting too expensive and crowded. This is where we want to live. We didn't realize when we came, that it was even better than we thought it could ever be, to live here.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
                      Quiet, scenic with views, in the woods and sunny also, not much traffic, close to Nevada City. Lots of things to do. In the summer we have many roses, gardens, an orchard, and if energy prevals, some organic vegetables, and (of course) many deer on the prowl, sometimes wild turkey, and other critters too. Maybe someday in the fall or winter (quiet time) you might give us a try if our friends and family are not visiting.
