Property description

Lost Mine Retreat, a custom log home. Easy access to Scotts Flat Lake. Visit us on Facebook for a virtual tour!


Nestled just inside the Tahoe National Forest, this beautiful log home sits high atop the remnants of an old hydraulic gold mine with panoramic views of Banner Mountain and the woods. This unique home gives one the experience of being peacefully secluded, yet is a short seven mile drive to downtown Nevada City, offering fine dining, entertainment, museums and shopping. The Retreat is ideal for family reunions, workshops and vacations for relaxing and recreation.

A stone's throw from the Retreat lies a charming community park with a swimming pond, walking trail, horseshoe pit, BBQ area, playground and sand volleyball court. The park is for rent and makes a great venue for a casual, affordable wedding. Just over a mile to Scotts Flat Lake the south side boat ramp provides access for swimming, boating, water skiing, sailing, fishing and kayaking on this pristine body of water.

Location

Nevada County was the site of the most prolific gold mining activity during the 1800's. It's historic sites offer museums, Empire Mine State Park, Malakoff Diggins State Park and charming historical districts of Nevada City and Grass Valley for shopping, wine tasting and antiquing. The region offers great hiking, mountain biking, rafting, kayaking, golf, tennis, sailing, fishing and more. There are cultural, musical and film festivals all year long at the Nevada County Fairgrounds and in town. Enjoy live theater and music at the Nevada Theatre; the oldest running theater in California! Access the fabulous Yuba River just outside of Nevada City for swimming, rafting, kayaking and hiking trails within the South Yuba River State Park. During the winter season, Grass Valley hosts Cornish Christmas and Nevada City offers Victorian Christmas festivals and abundant craft fairs. Both Nevada City and Grass Valley host season farmers markets.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: My husband and I spent four years of weekends completing construction of this beautiful log home. We love to share it with people who can appreciate the care and labor involved in every piece of lumber.

Why the Owner Chose Nevada City:
We initially purchased the land for an investment, but it just seemed to call for a home. Not quite ready for retirement, it made sense to build with the goal of having room enough to share with travelers.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The location of the house gives one the illusion of being quite secluded, yet it's located in an active neighborhood that borders the south shore of Scotts Flat Lake. There are breathtaking views, wildlife and quiet serenity.
