Nevada City house description

our large historic home offers the very best of nevada city. the front of our home is just one block from our downtown district bustling with cafes, coffee shops and boutiques, and the back of the home feels as if you are in a somewhat private retreat with its gorgeous tree canopy and year round creek.

nevada city is the best of northern california locations. we are just over two and a half hours from san francisco and just over an hour and a half from north lake tahoe. nature abounds; the breathtaking yuba river is under fifteen minutes from our downtown home, hiking and biking trails run throughout, and many lakes are a close drive for kayaking, paddle boarding, motor or sailboating.

nevada city is the perfect village to get away from it all, while having total access to great food, entertainment, art and culture. our town has a very alive art and music scene and many times of the year you will find various festivals if desired. we have alternative film house, the 'magic theater', just about a mile from downtown and the 'center for the arts' in grass valley, just about a ten minute drive away, has a packed schedule with artists ranging from marc cohn to brett dennen to joan baez and the indigo girls.

our home has four bedrooms and two and a half baths, and a sleeping nest, (up a narrow ladder, for agile guests to tuck away for a quiet afternoon).

downstairs you will find the living room, office space, dining room, music room, powder room, kitchen and master bedroom/bath. upstairs are three additional bedrooms and another full bath. sleeping nest in a separate part of the upstairs.

all bedrooms have wonderful pillows, duvets and sheets for a delicious night's sleep!

off of the kitchen is a deck equipped with comfortable chairs to relax in while looking out the surrounding beauty, and a dining table and chairs for spring, summer and fall outdoor meals.

the creek is a joy for children to play in and there is a lower creekside deck that is another great spot for a morning cup of tea or a late afternoon glass of wine.

we have a large off street parking area for three cars (a treat in nevada city as parking can be an issue) and bikes, a slack line, a basketball area, and a kayak available for use.

please note:
*three cats that live on our property and they can join you inside if you would enjoy the feline company, or remain outside if you prefer to keep the doors shut.
*our 160+ year old historic home is a work in progress; all three bathrooms are functional, but have not yet been renovated.
*booking during special events such as, but not limited to: victorian christmas, the wild and scenic environmental film festival and the strawberry music festival have special event rates available upon request.

we look forward to having you~
