About Debbie

This is where we grew up. We have been here since 1971. My husband and I went to Downieville School. Our senior class size was 8. My husband and I were married in Downieville. This is a special place for us.

Debbie purchased this cabin in 1971

Why Debbie chose Gold Country & High Sierra

We enjoy Downieville for many of the same reasons you do, and by offering our home as a vacation rental we are able to share it with you.

What makes this cabin unique

This cabin overlooks town and the quant village views, but its just a minute walk from the river, grocery store, restaurants and bars. It is in the middle of the action and yet has all the privacy you could want.

Quiet and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

As always, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bear Run Cabin. We make it a point to stay here at least once a year (this year we have visited twice! :-). It is always very clean and comfortable and the views of the town and river are fabulous. Close to downtown Downieville and the Yuba River. There is also a lot of wildlife to view! This trip we saw a grey fox, some deer and raccoons, an evidence of a bear (scat)! We also fished in the river, using turkey lunchmeat for bait and caught (and released) 13 Rainbow Trout! Staying her is like visiting your second home! Thank you, Debbie for sharing your home with us!

We had a great stay at Bear Run again this year. Great location right above town, comfortable, clean, and all we needed to set up base camp for mountain biking, hiking, swimming. Owner Debbie is great to work with - great communication. We'll be back next year.
