About Shari Barley

Hi, My name is Shari and I have lived in this area for 25 years.......it'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 cottage in 2010

Why Shari Barley chose Gold Country & High Sierra

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 cottage 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.

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Great place, GREAT host, Great location!

  • 5 of 5

I learned quickly in Nevada City that location matters. Well this adorable place is on beautiful land and only a mile from downtown so you get the best of both worlds, not having to choose between them and do a lot of driving to one or the other. It's got nature AND downtown fun. The Yuba river is only 20 minutes away and gorgeous, the restaurants in town yummy (try Three Forks for lunch or dinner and Treats for ice cream to die for), and just being there you are surrounded by nature. Hanging out on the property is quiet and healing. Every night we'd watch the sun go down through the trees from our front porch. Shari, the wonderful host, is right there on site and will help with anything - and she really knows a LOT! The unit is comfortable - full of light and a nice breeze. It's easy to cook in the well supplied kitchen and nice to just relax. You won't regret booking this place - it really is a treasure!

Amazing Weekend at The Tin Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely lovely time staying at The Tin Cottage in our favorite little California town, Nevada City. Shari was a great host, making our arrival/welcome quite pleasant, providing key information about the property and Nevada City. The place itself is newly renovated with a very comfortable bed and we couldn't have been happier. Waking up in the tranquil setting of The Tin Cottage was so beautiful, as it was to sit out on the deck amidst the forest like atmosphere of Shari's well kept stunning property. Thanks so much for everything, Shari!

Restful Stay At The Little Tin Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our extended stay was restful and peaceful, thanks to Shari and the Little Tin Cottage. It was a very comfortable set-up, with all that you may need thoughtfully provided. We walked through the neighborhood every morning, enjoying the countryside, farm animals, and access to fresh eggs! We saw and heard many different bird species. In the country, but close to town.It was totally delightful. We are kind of picky about where we stay . . . especially with a dog. Shari's place was wonderful and would recommend it in a heartbeat.

Map

Nearest Restaurant
3 Miles
Nevada City 5 minutes to town
Car: necessary

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.
