This charming rustic cabin is located on the property of Watanda Lodge, Nevada City, California, 2 1/2 miles from downtown Nevada City. This is a secret hide-away with lake, canoes, stage and large camp fire ring. Sleeps up to 5 (2 adults and 3 kids) or 4 adults, linens provided for queen bed; bottom sheets & 4 pillows provided for the twin bunk (bring your own sleeping bag or you can make bed with linens provided) and linens for double sized sofa sleeper or bring your own. You will need to bring your own towels unless your travel is by air. Direct TV/DVD. Wall furnace, window A/C in living room. Phone for local calls, but no cell service. Internet available at the lodge, just can't get the signal at the cabin. Port-a-crib available.
The remodeled fully equipped kitchen contains everything you need including BBQ tools and high chair. Pots, pans, dishes, microwave, toaster, coffee maker all provided. A picnic table and charcoal BBQ sits on the porch. Single bedroom with queen bed and bathroom with shower.
The cabin sits on Lake Vera (lake views from the back porch), canoes, chairs and umbrellas provided. Charcoal BBQ and picnic area on waterfront. No license needed for fishing. Life jackets are provided and required for all boaters. Lake is seasonal and is drained from November (depending on rainy season) to mid-April. Lake levels begin to drop in August and can be quite low in dry summers.
Lodge located on property may be rented to others at the same time so waterfront may be shared. Inquire at time of rental if this is a concern for you. There is an ALL-LAKE quiet from 9:30 pm to 7:00 am. Only activities that do not create a noise disturbance are allowed. For larger groups, see our lodge listing @ VRBO listing #33190.
Nevada City: The Spring and Fall in Nevada City are not to be missed, this small Gold Mining town is a definite destination for a week (or weekend) of fun. There are several wineries in the area as well as many fine restaurants, and antique stores. Both Empire Gold Mine and Malakoff Diggings are open for tours. Grocery stores, hospital and other services less than 5 miles away.
SUMMER USE: April, May and June are my favorite months Watanda, the days are warm and evenings are long. There are numerous lakes in the area and Yuba River is 3 miles away. Hwy 20 has many Equestrian trails and staging areas. The fairgrounds is close by and has a variety of antique and quilt shows, horse events and home shows.
WINTER USE: Nevada City and Grass Valley both have weekly Christmas Fairs in December offering many local artisans. Great location for Tahoe skiers who do not want to pay resort prices. Cross country skiing 45 minutes away on Hwy 20, snow play less than 20 minutes up Hwy 20. Cabin at 2500 ft elevation and is located off main road which is plowed but has long driveway that is not plowed. There is parking at the road entrance if snow is a problem, but rarely is. Saucer sleds available.
