Things To Do:

Winter time we get snow, it is a beautiful time to come visit. It looks like a winter wonderland. Sledding areas are 10 minutes away up Hwy 20, also skiing is 30 minutes away at Sugar Bowl and Soda Springs Ski Resorts. During the Fall, Spring and Summer there is Scotts Flat Lake 10 minutes away from the house where boating and waterskiing are allowed. Rainbow Bike trail is one block away. A park with tennis and swimming is also only minutes away. The Fair Grounds has fireworks on the Fourth of July and a County Fair in August. Music with concerts in the park are all throughout the summer. The Nevada City downtown area is a special place to see. It is a historic town with many darling restaurants and shops, wine tasting rooms and live theater. The town offers horse drawn carriage rides to take you around town. Victorian Christmas is a fun time to come in Dec since the town is decorated with lights and everyone has fun dressing up in Victorian clothes. There is lots to do here in Nevada City, we recommend going online to see when all these events take place throughout the year. We hope you will come and visit us soon and see what Nevada City has to offer in the heart of the Gold Country. Property manager is on site.

In the summer they love to go boating on the lake and play on the beach or the park close by that has tennis and a swimming pool all summer long. Nevada City is a wonderful place to come visit, with lots of activities all year long, we hope you will visit with us real soon:)! The Schwartz Family

Randy Schwartz purchased this house in 1992

Why Randy Schwartz chose Nevada City

My husband chose to build our vacation home here in Nevada City because it is a beautiful place to get away from it all. Winter time there is plenty to do like skiing, sledding, playing in the snow or just sitting in front of the fire reading a book. Summer time there is the lake with water sports, tennis, biking, hiking and more.

What makes this house unique

It is only 3 hours away from the bay area, instead of the 5 hour drive that it takes to get to Tahoe. It is in a quiet area away from all the hustle and bustle. Only 10 minutes to the town of Nevada City and close to all your favorite winter and summer activities. There is lots to do or you can do nothing and just enjoy the peaceful surroundings of beautiful Nevada City.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Skiing is only 30minutes away. The skiing was great, the house was great. Love the firepace at night to sit by after skiing all day. We brought another couple to go skiing with us and love it too. Definitely will be back.

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

We found the perfect place to spend a quiet, relaxing, stressfree holiday here. The area is beautiful, the house was great. We loved walking the property and the “neighborhood”. Had a wonderful time in Nevada City as well. The owners were easy to work with.

The property is beautiful but dirty. Sleeping for 8 not 10. 20 minutes away from Nevada City not 10.

  • 3 of 5

Communication with owner is very bad and to prove our point we arrived to a house that was a mess! According to the woman that cleans the place she was unaware we were coming! There was dirty linens piled up on the beds, no towels in the bathrooms, dirty dishes in the dishwasher and a laundry room loaded with dirty laundry! The telephone at the house didn’t work and the TV didn’t work either with no reception! Our cellphones could not call out but I could text and did with no response once again from owner or property manager! We were there to attend a wedding so we had to go to a rehearsal dinner and instead of enjoying the dinner I had to deal with calling and finally reaching the owner who said he will get it taken care of. 3 hours later things were better but I was told to make my own bed because I left a bag with beach towels on the bed! The tubs are badly stained and no one would think of taking a tub bath and as I said the sinks etc were not very clean and stained. The house is very nice though but if you have more than 8 people bring blowup mattress or plan on sleeping on the floor!

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

It was the perfect place to have friends and family visit. Living out of the country we wanted to have a central place to be. The house was so beautiful, warm and cozy. It ticked all our boxes and then some.If you like to cook, the kitchen is a chef's dream, amazing gourmet kitchen.
