About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4).
Wake up to the sound of birds and end the night on the deck gazing at millions of stars. It is easy to unwind in this special home with its zen-like feel situated on 5 pastoral acres of open meadows, pine, oak and fruit trees, organic gardens and a picturesque old barn. Wonderful, easy country walks from your door abound and hiking is minutes away. Tucked away in a hidden place with such a rural feel, you will be amazed to find what a very short and easy walk it is past beautiful Victorians to the bustling, historic, charming Gold Country downtown of Nevada City. In combination with 'Twin City' Grass Valley, 3 miles away, there is more than an abundance of great restaurants, world class live entertainment, shops, galleries and museums to keep you busy.
If you are parents or grandparents with family living here you want to visit, it is the perfect spot. If you live in San Francisco and want to make a quick getaway out of the fog, it is just a 2 1/2 hour drive. Reno is only an hour and 15 minutes away and Sacramento is just an hour. Easy drives to come to a 'world away'! Anytime is the right time to make your reservations. Nevada County boasts a gorgeous, eastern style Fall with brilliant color everywhere. You don't even have to leave our property to see an unbelievable display of Fall colors. There are huge crafts faires over Thanksgiving weekend and there are classical music festivals in the Fall and throughout the year. Professional theater and our Center for the Arts concerts and events take place year round. In the winter, the towns of Nevada City and Grass Valley both hold street fairs in the month of December prior to Christmas and the towns are decorated to look like something out of a Victorian fairy tale. Winter brings ski-ing and within an hour, you can be at major ski resorts in Lake Tahoe. In the spring, quince, daffodils and everything else is in bloom, frogs are croaking and the river will be flowing. In the summer, you can swim in our magnificent Yuba River, hike, stroll to Farmers Markets, attend music festivals and just enjoy. Weddings abound in our area from Spring through the Fall so if you are part of the wedding party or a guest coming from out of town, make your reservations now. Staying in our guest house instead of a hotel will make the event that much more memorable.
The Yuba River and Nevada City's Scotts Flat Lake are each only 10 minutes away and the North Shore of Lake Tahoe is an hour. Reserve some time now to stay at Honeycomb Ranch in the Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall before it gets all booked up.
If you like outdoor activities, relaxing, eating gourmet food, theater, musical events including classical music festivals that rival San Francisco and shopping in boutiques, and/or sitting quietly reading a book or meditating while watching birds soaring overhead, you will enjoy staying at Honeycomb Ranch while taking in all that Nevada County has to offer.

Nevada City is a gorgeous small town in the Gold Country's Foothills that is a restored Victorian town that has many shops, cultural events, movies, restaurants, festivals and where natural beauty and friendly people abound.
Year Purchased: 2002
About the owner: Mike, my husband, and I have lived in Nevada City for over 33 years and have raised four children here. We have lived at Honeycomb Ranch for over 22 years. We both love Nevada County and have taken advantage of all the wonderful things that there are to do here including sailing and kayaking on Scotts Flat Lake, cross country skiing, biking, hiking, and attending many of the cultural events on an on-going basis. Having lived here for so long, I can send you in the right direction for anything you would be interested in doing. Both originally from Southern California, we would never want to live anywhere else but here. We travel often but always look forward to coming home. We are pictured here with our dog, Barley, who has become our official VRBO greeter.
Why the Owner Chose Nevada City, CA, USA:
We chose to build a guest house on our property in a totally private spot so our friends and grown family members would have a wonderful place to stay when they came to visit. With our children now all living in other parts of the country, we felt the time was right to make our guest home available to people who are interested in coming to our area.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The best part of staying on Honeycomb Ranch is the tranquil feeling, the beauty and rural quality of being here and the closeness to town. Our guest house is a very special place, carefully designed to put your soul at ease. It is very quiet and peaceful and the vistas are beautiful. For us, it serves as a retreat and anyone who comes here and stays in our guest house feels the same way.
