About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps up to 8)

Our Sierra City Retreat is ~ 1900 square feet of cozy living space. With 2 separate living areas, and room to sleep ten, there is space for everyone. Our cabin is located on a quiet street in a wooded park like setting. You are walking distance to town, the Pacific Crest Trail and the river. Its central location and higher elevation make it a popular rental year round

Sierra City lies along the North Yuba River at about 4,500 feet in the shadow of the 9,000 foot Sierra Buttes. It's proximity to the Lakes Basin (45 alpine lakes within 15 miles) and Yuba Pass (7,250 feet) make it a favorite for outdoor enthusiasts wanting to get away. Fishing, hiking, swimming and mountain biking (~12 miles from infamous “Downieville Downhill”) are all very popular in the summer as well as cross country skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling in the winter. The nearest alpine skiing is located in Truckee ~ 46 miles from our cabin.

Fantastic stay in Sierra City

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Erin's cabin in the mountains! It was spacious, stocked with everything we needed, and in a great location if you love the outdoors! If you have time, take the short walk over to Kentucky Mine Museum, it was really interesting, and they were doing guided tours at 11AM and 2PM. Also a nice swimming hole down at the Wild Plum Bridge! I hope to stay here again soon, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to a friend!

Very good vacation rental

  • 4 of 5

Clean, comfortable, & well stocked. We have stayed at this house before & you can't go wrong, especially good for a bigger family as there are four queen beds. Sierra city & the surrounding area offer amazing recreational activities, or just power relaxing. Walk to the river, fishing, Mtn biking, hiking, it's all there.

Sierra City Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was a large, warm, homey, extremely comfortable cabin, fully equipped for eating and enjoying family time. We were essentially snowed in but were quite content. The home was very clean and well cared for with plenty of space to spread out and lounge without getting into each others way. Would like to come back in the summer when we can enjoy the patio and firepit.

Great Property

  • 5 of 5

This house is great ! All the comfort of any home and then some. The beds were comfortable and the linens throughout the house are nice too. 2 separate sitting areas with TV's. The kitchen is completely stocked with anything that you might need to make meals. Both gas and charcoal BBQ's. We absolutely loved the fire pit at night, and there was even wood there to burn. Check in and out was a breeze. Nice to have Wi-Fi and we had good cell reception too.
