Nevada City cabin description

ALSO ON THE SAME PROPERTY WE OFFER MAMA BEAR'S CABIN FOR 4 (VRBO # 46822) AND BABY BEAR'S COTTAGE FOR 2 (VRBO# 72370).

Description: Located 65 miles east of Sacramento, and 75 miles west of Tahoe, in the Northern Sierra Foothills, our spacious and comfortable Timber Lodge is now available for rental year round. We are situated on five treed acres just minutes from historic downtown Nevada City, and the spectacular Yuba River.

The main lodge has three bedrooms and two and a half baths. (For added space be sure to check out the other two cabins). The large loft has a double futon, single futon,and one twin bed as well as sitting area. The large master suite has full bath with double sinks, a king bed, twin day bed and regular twin bed. The second bedroom has a double bed and single bed, and the third bedroom has a queen size bed. These latter two rooms share a bath. There is also a trundle bed in the den, as well as a wood stove.

The large country kitchen has everything you need and plenty of room to fix a gourmet meal for a big crowd, or for several families to cook together. The large dining table, made from the mahogany lining of an old box car, can accommodate ten, with additional seating for three at the kitchen counter.

The large great room has a woodburning stove, ample couches and chairs. There are plenty of books to read and games to play. There are numerous eclectic art pieces throughout the lodge, and a baby grand piano in the great room. Guitar available for the experienced player.

The hot tub awaits off the wraparound covered back porch. There you can pass the time playing pingpong, or just ralax reading a book, or watching the occasional deer or turkey family, wander onto the property. You may even see one of the bear family wander by to discover who's been sleeping in their bed! The Timber Lodge is available year round.

                  If you like history, there is plenty here. Originally built in the 1850's, Nevada City and it's neighboring town, Grass Valley, are historically preserved, with the streets looking very much as they did back in the days of the gold rush era. You will find beautiful old victorian homes, gold mining museums, fine restaurants and live theater. Pioneer Park is a great place for the family with younger children wanting a playground, ball parks tennis courts, and a swimming pool.

                  You can try your hand at gold panning along the Yuba River or Deer Creek. For a great day trip Lake Tahoe and the surrounding area beckons.

                  Our three cabins are located on 5 acres, next to Camp Augusta, and 80 acre children's summer camp. In the summer months you can hear 'happy camp sounds' as children enjoy swimming, zip lining and singing around the camp fire.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2000

                  About the owner: We have lived in this wonderful community of Nevada City for over 20 years now, and find that our guests love the area as much as we do. Papa Bear's Lodge was our family home until our son went away to college. We now live in town, right next to Rene's studio, just a short distance from the lodge and cabins. We personally attend to the upkeep and management of the property. Our cabins reflect our love for the arts, and you'll find Rene's handmade pottery there too. If you hit it just right, you may be able to catch one of us in a local play.

                  Why the Owner Chose Nevada City:
                  We stumbled upon the jewel of Nevada city 24 years ago, and impressed with the local theater scene and the wholesome, friendly atmosphere, decided this was the place to live and raise our young son. Now, having raised along with him, goats, horses and veggie gardens, we decided to moved a couple of years ago from Papa Bear's Lodge to our home in town, which is conveniently located next to Rene's pottery studio. We love the friendly people, history, culture and ambiance of Nevada City, as well as the beauty of the surrounding foothills. We consider it a gift to be able to share our lodge and cabins with visitors to this area.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  Though you feel like you are out in the woods, you are only 2.5 miles from the energy of downtown, with it's many shops, live theater, fine dining, city park and pool, and night life. Go the other direction, and you are just 3.5 miles from our magical Yuba River with its huge boulders and big swimming holes as well as fine hiking paths. If you want to just stay cozy in one of the log cabins, you will not be disappointed. The feeling there is so serene, even we feel like we are on vacation when we are there. In the summer time, the children's camps are in session all around Lake Vera. We are located next to Camp Augusta. To see their summer schedule, go to www.campaugusta.com.
