Nevada City apartment 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.

                  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.
