  • Wonderful Cabin!

    "I stayed at the Papa Bear house over a weekend in February. It was beautifully furnished and maintained, not to mention huge! I highly recommend it!"

  • Perfection!

    "Gorgeous house to share with friends! Loved every second of it. Well worth the rental cost - everything is neat, clean, all the best amenities and just a short walk from restaurants & village. Backyard is a beautiful forest you can just take off on a hike into. Looking forward to staying here again soon!"

  • Super month!

    "What a great month long vacation stay! Upon arrival we felt right at home because the owner is so friendly and inviting we felt like we had stayed there a million times before. She gave us our privacy and also didn't mind family popping in and out for visits with us. We really enjoyed having our own private deck where we did most of our relaxing. The apartment was clean and comfortable and really close to town for shopping and enjoying the great restaurants that Nevada County has to offer. We can't wait for our next stay!"

  • Could not have been better!

    "My friends and I enjoy getting out and exploring California. That said, this was truly one of the best CA experiences I could imagine, and I would highly recommend staying here. This prefab house (an idea I am now sort of obsessed with) was beautifully simple and I love how the design reminds you of the surrounding landscape at all times. The whole 7 acres is amazing- plenty to explore. Our group rented the 2 tent cabins and they were perfect for us, harkening back to the days of week long summer camp, but close enough to the house to grab a beer out of the fridge. The stars were incredible. Deer wandered past the house all throughout dusk. Red sunset light against the surrounding hills can't be beat. The sound of the river is the perfect backdrop soundtrack. There was ample space for food and the kitchen is well equipped. No TV and no internet were a welcomed respite from the pace of city life. There is a projector and screen to watch DVDs if you so desire. One of our party was able to get a sliver of cell service (AT&T) from one of the tent cabins. This house provided just the right amount of thoughtful, modern comfort (not sure if it was a knockoff or not but LOVED sitting in the lounging Eames chair), but then nature was also so accessible. Slick Rock Recreation area is minutes away, and was the perfect Sunday swim spot. We spent most of Saturday up in Sequoia National Park- an hour or so away. If you stay at this house you absolutely should get up there. Hike the stairs to the top of Morro Rock. Walk around the Crescent Meadow in Giant forest. Go see the Sequoias named "The President" and "The Senate" (they are as impressive as General Sherman but much less people). Spring time was a great time to visit: we got to hike with snow on the ground, and we saw bears! Wildflowers and Pacific Dogwood were blooming and rivers were running with snow melt. Temperatures were mild. Truly, just the best. At this point I'm just going to start repeating myself. This place is thoughtful and perfect on this piece of property and we loved our time there. Sheila, the manager was friendly, easy going, and informative about the space. She is also very knowledgeable about Sequoia National Park, so ask her for suggestions. Owners, if you ever are selling, please let me know! Or if you want to grab a cocktail in LA, I'd love to hear more about the process of building this place! Thank you for renting this place out!"
