Property description

Central location, walk to events and restaurants in this historic Gold Rush town. Enjoy your own quiet, cozy 550 sq ft. apartment with full kitchen in the lower level of a private home. Children welcome. Plenty of parking.

Comfortable 1 bedroom/1 bath apartment, for 1 to 3 people (4, if children) with a queen bed and futon couch (Pack n Play available). The flat is in the lower level of a home (quiet, single occupant). The ceilings are low (81'; one crossbeam descends 5-1/2'). The apartment has its own entrance.

Guests are asked to book a minimum of 2 nights and to only bring the number of guests agreed upon. Monthly rentals are welcome. A pet is possible, if quiet and well behaved (pet deposit required).

This is a fabulous location in the heart of an old Victorian gold-mining town that makes a car unnecessary for most your needs.

Your host is a professional writer, teacher and world traveler, and is likely to be available to assist you for much of the year while writing her next book. Otherwise, the apartment is overseen by a very capable couple. We’re glad to recommend sightseeing, walks and local eateries that will make your stay extra special. Someone will check in at some point after arrival; otherwise your privacy is respected.

Car: Recommended

This is the heart of California's Gold Country. The Sierra Foothills has a mild four-season semi-arid climate with occasional snow, rain only during the winter rainy season, and mild summers (compared to the blistering central-valley). You'll find festivals, theatre, music, markets, plus lots of hiking and outdoor activites - many within walking distance and others, only a short drive. Sking is only an hour away and swimming in mountain rivers is even closer. This is also a popular area for weddings and other family gatherings.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: I'm a world traveler who's lived in five different countries and six states in the U.S. I make my living by writing books and traveling to teach.

Why the Owner Chose Nevada City:
I moved to Nevada City from San Francisco because I was looking for a slower pace, beautiful environment, and lots of art, culture and interesting events.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
I enjoy being in the midst of things, walking distance to everything, on a usually quiet street (except during festivals and parades). Every time I return from a trip, I delight in driving into my picturesque Victorian town, lit at night by gas-lights and people ambling through the streets no matter the time. There are plenty of trees around the house, giving the sensation of being in a private oasis (while actually being quite central). Most days the nearly cloudless sky is a sparkling blue and the air is fresh. Even in winter there are summery days while the summer nights are cool. We have our own public radio station, combining the best in music and talk, plus there are plenty of activities from wine-tasting to courses, to guided hikes, and everything in the arts.
