About Carol and Richard Buckley

We love the area and had been looking for property to build; not so far away from our home that we would not enjoy it with family, and close enough for a fun weekend getaway. The property we chose became available at a time when we were able to purchase the land and build a small home to our specifications. After 2-3 years of our own sweat and tears, we were able to make that dream come true. We visit as often as we are able, but not as often as we would like, and therefore would like to share it's comfort and location with those who like to come to the slopes in the winter or just kick back and enjoy the beautiful Sierra Nevada Mountains in any season. We appreciate the opportunity to share our cabin with you should you decide to come stay at Hi Sierra!

Carol and Richard Buckley purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Carol and Richard Buckley chose World

Close to Ski resorts. Road is always plowed! Even when the highway is closed!! Just minutes to Sugar Bowl, Boreal, Donner Ski Ranch and Royal Gorge. Great recreational area. Homeowners access to Yuba River. Hiking, sledding and recreational activities close!

What makes this cabin unique

Property is connected to a green belt for cross county skiing, or walking. Yuba River very short walk. Fishing, and hiking abound. Pacific Coast Trail close.

Wonderful House

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house and loved it.. Everything was wonderful from the furniture to the artwork, the kitchen is stocked very well. The owner contacted us during our stay to make sure everything was ok, which I think was very nice. You really feel as if your in a friends home and not a rental home. We will be repeat renters for sure!

Great Time!

Our family stayed here for Christmas and had a great time! The location is great and there are plenty of things to do.

The house is very comfortable and spacious with a wonderful kitchen. The owners also take care to make sure everything you need is there for you to use. We would certainly stay here again and recommend it to anyone!

Gold country locals

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I came for our anniversary from just an hour from our house. When we walked in we saw the attention to detail very clean and modern with the classic cabin feel. We listened to music, a nice fire in the wood stove with wine while we cooked. Very relaxing to say the least. We are planning our next stay here to bring our 2 kids already, the kids would have a great time in the loft. We highly recommend.

Attention to Detail!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this cabin for a wedding weekend at Cisco Grove. It was spacious and comprtable and perfect for my elderly parents because it had a first floor master and only a few steps to get into the cabin. Plenty of room upstairs to sleep and hang out. We did not have to use the sleeping loft but it would be really nice if you have multiple families with lots of kids. Everything you would every want or need is in this cabin. We really loved our stay!

Perfect Home Nestled Among Pine Trees

  • 5 of 5

We had a very restful Christmas at this property. I chose this property due to its closeness to Royal Gorge, this house turns out to be much much better looking than the pictures show: all furniture is real wood, all rooms are decorated tastefully, the entertainment center is equipped with modern systems and tasteful collection of DVDs for adults as well as children. Everywhere is spotless and well-lit, including the walk-in laundry room. 2 bikes and sleds, mittens are thoughtfully provided. I will definitely return for another getaway.
