Whether you enjoy outdoor activities or just want to relax on our deck overlooking the river, you will love this place. Hike the trails nearby, swim, kayak, and picnic at one of many beautiful mountain lakes, gaze at the Sierra Buttes, fish and enjoy the local swimming holes on the Yuba River, or just relax with a view of the river and the Tahoe National Forest. Perfect for a family vacation or group of friends. Great for tele-commuting with a view -- if your boss will let you!
During winter it's a great location to avoid the crowds of the Tahoe area and is great for cross country skiing, snow shoeing, snowmobiling, or sledding with the family. Borrow our snowshoes and poles or our sled and have some fun. You can borrow our SNO-PARK permit if you'd like to park at the Yuba Pass Snow Park.
New: you may borrow our kayak to enjoy on the lakes nearby (not the river). Fits two adults and a child or dog. Please arrange for kayak ahead of time if interested.
Enjoy time on the river side deck, fish on the river below, and sleep to the relaxing sound of the river. Enjoy the restaurants in the picturesque mining town of Sierra City or Downieville or buy groceries at the local Country Store and cook or barbecue at the cabin. Ride your bikes around town, ride the single tracks on your mountain bike, or ride your road bike up Gold Lake Road along many gorgeous lakes.
Check out our low weekly pricing - may be better to spend a week - there is lots of see and do in the area. Telecommute from the cabin for a few days while the rest of your family enjoys a longer vacation.
There are two bedrooms and two full bathrooms. One king bed, one queen bed, and a queen size air mattress that can go in either room or the living room. The second bedroom has a private entrance to the hall bathroom. There is access to the entire house, except the garage. Living space is about 1200 square feet.
The TV is set up with a ROKU box and a Netflix subscription to enjoy great movies, TV shows, news, weather, and music. Plug your iPod or other music player to the stereo system or the available portable iPod player. VHS, CD, and Cassette players are also available.
You are welcome to use the gas barbecue on the back deck facing the river and the washer and dryer in the hall bath. Connect your phones and laptops to our WiFi network for fast internet connectivity.

About the owner: I grew up in Honduras and live in the San Francisco Bay Area where I went to college and where I lead the marketing team for a cool mobile startup. I love the outdoors and water sports. I frequently go sailing in the Bay where I'm a volunteer instructor. I enjoy cycling and like to ride up Mt. Diablo and Gold Lake road. I'm married to an American, have two teenage daughters and a dog. I like to travel and enjoy meeting interesting people as a guest and as a host.
