About Shari Barley

Hi, My name is Shari and I have lived in this area for 25's one of those places that you totally fall in love with immediately and know that you want to live here. I am a full time Realtor so I'm very knowledgeable about the area and it's amenities and in my past career I was a flight attendant so I also know how to care for my guests needs and also give them their privacy. Come for a visit and feel the warmth and ambiance of this golden treasure called Nevada City in the foothills.

Shari Barley purchased this farmhouse in 2010

Why Shari Barley chose Nevada City

I have experienced having a vacation rental in another area and enjoyed it so much that when I bought this property it was with the intention of creating a beautiful place to stay and a relaxing experience for those searching for more than just a place to lay their heads.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Let's see: Scenery, an abundance of activities, the ability to walk to town and most of all the tranquility of the property are at the top of most guest's lists . Start walking in any direction and you will feel like you are in the country...around the corner there is a large local farm that on any given day throughout the summer you can pick up fresh vegetables and flowers. You can awaken to the sounds of deer meandering through the property and distant horses, goats, chickens, quail and even owls in the evening provide a background of sounds. Beautiful Deer Creek is just around the corner. With dining in town, plays, outstanding musicians and events all year long the short walk/ride to town is hugely desirable. You can ride a bike right off the property for some amazing rides and getting to the lakes nearby for kayaking, boating or fishing is a short 15 minutes.

This is truly what the meaning of a 'Vacation' should be, a time to relax and enjoy your surroundings. You won't want to leave!

The perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent three days at Shari's place and it was exactly as advertised. Cute upstairs floor with separate entrance and deck; well laid out. Spacious family room and bedroom and as noted really just for one couple. Shari helped us with a map to the area and also coached us on carrots to feed the nearby donkeys during our evening stroll. About a mile to downtown Nevada City. Was a bit too warm to enjoy the yard and picnic area but plenty of space and well appointed. Multiple groceries etc. with 5-10 minute drive. Shari is a great host! We will be back.

Wonderful Nevada City Escape

  • 5 of 5

We loved this well equipped, cozy, peaceful accommodation just outside downtown Nevada City. Shari is a great host— the cottage is above her home and she was available for questions and concerns, but was completely respectful of our privacy. The bed was super comfy and the bathroom wonderfully luxurious with great soaking tub. We will definitely return!

What a great experience. The property is amazing, the unit beautiful and Shari could not have been any more accommodating. We were there for a wedding and only two days which is not even close to enough time for exploration but a couple trips into town was fun and quite an experience. We are hoping to get back for a longer stay.

Quiet getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Long time Nevada City visitors, great place to sit and relax while planning the next hike! Our blind dog also liked the peace and quiet. Each morning the horse next door was patiently waiting for his carrots. Weather was hot but the evenings cooled down and one could sit outside and enjoy the large trees on the property with a glass of wine and in my case, a beer. A complete kitchen, all that was needed was a small trip to the local grocery store, SPD. Tried the local wines and tasting rooms in town. Two weeks went by fast, looking at retiring to Nevada City and Shari is a wealth of information on local real estate, trails, restaurants and both food and wine! Do recommend Northridge a local family type restaurant just down the street, different happy hour each day, their pizzas and hamburgers are excellent and a good selection of draft beers all at reasonable prices!

Nevada City has become a destination for vacations and a magnet for artists and musicians.

Situated in the Gold Country with Victorian homes lining it's streets, cultural events are common place. Kayaking, water skiing and fishing enthusiasts have access to unlimited lakes and river scenes and trails for bicyclist and hikers abound.

A large variety of restaurants, wineries and drinking establishments as well as movies, plays and of course first rate shopping make Nevada City a happening place to be. More of the same is located in the town of Grass Valley which is just five minutes away.

Day trips to Lake Tahoe for summer fun or world class winter sports are also not far away.

This beautiful area is not to be missed by those looking for a very special get away or perhaps even an incredible place to relocate to.
