Our lake has a recently upgraded multi-million dollar boat launch ramp, which will be perfect to put in your ski boat, sailboat, or fishing boat. As it's a drinking water reservoir, jet skis and sea-doos are not allowed.
The San Francisco Chronicle newspaper has described our lake (which is called Scott's Flat Reservoir), as one of the Sierra Nevada's best kept secrets.
At approximately 760 acres, the lake is roughly 3 1/2 X 1 mile long with up to 7 miles of shoreline. It is actually large enough that a resident fleet of sailboats can dot the shoreline during the sailing season.
Wildlife and solitude abound here. Bald eagles, ospreys, geese, deer and coyotes are residents here along with the occassional bear, bobcat and fox. Watch where you step!
A local community store is within easy walking distance (perfect for the morning or an after dinner stroll). Downtown Nevada City is approximately 10 - 12 minutes away by car.
Most days and nights (with the exception of the boating season), there can be little to no noise except the wind in the trees. It's hard to describe that to those that live in a world of 'white noise'.
Come, we invite you and your family friends, co-workers or that someone special to escape to our retreat from the real world.
Whether your life is full, or you're now looking for something off the beaten path, we look forward to providing you an fulfilling experience very few people may ever be able to have, where ever you hail from.

About the owner: Working toward retirement, Caroline and Craig still reside in the San Francisco area and devote time to our stunning Nevada City home and our other vaction rentals throughout Northern California. We've designed and set up this property to be a home away from home for our family and guests to experience all the luxury and details that we know everyone will enjoy. We have been associated with the hotel and guest client industries and know how to please people. We have been fortunate to extensively travel the world for the last 30 years and stay in many upscale hotels and other traveler's accomodations. This has made us realize the little touches and creature comforts that we can provide to make your stay truely memorable. Luxury, ambiance and discretion are paramount with us and is our guiding philosophy for this property. We will be continually posting more pictures of this stunning property to showcase all of its ammenities.
Why the Owner Chose Nevada City:
Camp-Run-A-Muck fit every desire we had for a lakeside mountain getaway that we looked for years to find. Combined with all of the local attractions, plus an easy drive from anywhere in Northern California, and located in the 'heart of gold country', it was an easy choice for us. Almost everything on the property has been updated and to some extent modernized to take full advantage of progress. We know that you'll enjoy this mountain getaway almost as much as we do.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Crafted in the European style, this A-Frame style home boasts a stunning view, location and solitude. Extensive woodwork with open beamed ceilings, most rooms come with intricate wooden detailed walls and hand crafted touches. A mixture of unique and modern furnishings and appointments, we have chosen to reflect the historic ambiance of the locale to add to our guest's experience of the property. Vaulted ceilings for the upper Master and rear bedrooms. Spectacular 180 degree panoramic views from the Master bedroom, provide a filtered view through mature towering evergreen trees of our own personal lake. 3 fireplaces provide cozy encompassing warmth should you desire. A well stocked woodshed can guarantee a romantic fire every evening. Crisp evenings, warm days, fresh air and gentle breezes provide that mountain amibiance and feeling intune with the 'real world'. On demand hot water means never running out. Wait till you experience our hot tub while looking up to a field of stars. No local streetlights means almost perfect stargazing. If the conditions are right, our semi-resident flock of bats may delight and entertain you.
