About the property

Romantic get away, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

This lovely accommodation is tastefully decorated with vaulted wood ceilings and open views into a beautifully forested setting.

The property has two gorgeous park like wooded acres in close proximity to town and 'Deer Creek'. There are fabulous country walks meandering throughout the area and hiking on our nearby trails.

The peace and tranquility of your lovely suite and well thought out amenities combine a home like feeling with the luxuries found in your finer hotels.

Enjoy breakfast on your balcony and lunch or dinner under the canopy of tall pines at the specially created glass table top picnic bench. The summer garden is a chef's delight with abundant fresh vegetables and herbs.

The sounds of country living are in contrast to the close proximity of town where a variety of restaurants, shops and libation establishments abound.

This is not just a place to stay.........it's a place to experience the warmth and charm of this very special town in the heart of gold country.

You won't want to leave this little paradise......it really is a Nevada City Treasure!

Keywords: Lovely accommodations, large deck overlooking views into private forest, walk to town.

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!

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.

A gem in the forest

  • 5 of 5

Loved, loved, loved my extended stay at the Little Tin Cottage. The place itself has been beautifully remodeled with a lovely meld of the old and the new. It is charming, bright and spacious, with a full kitchen and bath. There are laundry facilities on the property as well. This upstairs space is nestled in the pine forest with great access to hiking or just strolling along nearby paths and creeks. From the covered porch there is a lovely view of the forest and neighboring barns. It’s the perfect place to reconnect with nature… and yourself.

Shari, the owner, has thought of everything! Comfy bed, down comforter, roomy glassed in shower and tub, plenty of closet space and flat screen TV. Internet service was quick and reliable. She was extremely helpful in directing me to where I wanted to go and made many suggestions on places to visit in the area.

Easy access to center of Nevada City. (Don't miss breakfast at the South Pine Cafe!)

I’ll be back, that’s for sure. Thank you Shari and all the wonderful people I had the pleasure of meeting.

Comfortable, well-equipped, charming

  • 5 of 5

The Tin Cottage is very comfortable and well-equipped. We particularly enjoyed sitting on the deck gazing at the peaceful rural scene. Shari is an excellent hostess, friendly and generous with helpful information and tips. Nevada City itself is charming, with many interesting shops and restaurants. Hiking and exploring opportunities are nearby.

Delightful

  • 5 of 5

The house is located in a lovely neighborhood that is conducive to long bucolic walks, yet close to town. Shari, as hostess, was gracious and made us feel at home during our month plus stay. The listing and photos were both accurate, with everything equal or surpassing the images on line. We would recommend staying here to anyone who wants to visit Nevada City or who is looking for a peaceful get away with excellent restaurants nearby.

Beautiful Quiet Country Reatreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this cute apartment for 2 months and loved it. It was sparkling clean, perfectly comfortable, and had everything we needed. It was conveniently located in a quiet, beautiful area just 3-4 minutes from town. Shari was welcoming, friendly and helpful throughout our stay. We hope to return soon!

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.
