About Rene and Drue
We have lived in this wonderful community of Nevada City for over 30 years now, and find that our guests love the area as much as we do. Papa Bear's Lodge was our family home until our son graduated from college. We now live in town, right next to Rene's studio, just a short distance from the lodge and cabins. We personally attend to the upkeep and management of the property. Our cabins reflect our love for the arts, and you'll find Rene's handmade pottery there too. If you hit it just right, you may be able to catch one of us in a local play.
Rene and Drue purchased this cabin in 2000
Why Rene and Drue chose Nevada City
We stumbled upon the jewel of Nevada city in 1989 and, impressed with the local theater scene and the wholesome, friendly atmosphere, decided this was the place to live and raise our young son. Now, having raised along with him, goats, horses and veggie gardens, we decided to move several years ago from Papa Bear's Lodge to our home in town, which is conveniently located next to Rene's pottery studio. We love the friendly people, history, culture and ambiance of Nevada City, as well as the beauty of the surrounding foothills. We consider it a gift to be able to share our lodge and cabins with visitors to this area.
What makes this cabin unique
Though you feel like you are out in the woods, you are only 2.5 miles from the energy of downtown, with it's many shops, live theater, fine dining, city park and pool, and night life. Go the other direction, and you are just 3.5 miles from our magical Yuba River with its huge boulders and big swimming holes as well as fine hiking paths. If you want to just stay cozy in one of the log cabins, you will not be disappointed. The feeling there is so serene, even we feel like we are on vacation when we are there. In the summer time, the children's camps are in session all around Lake Vera. We are located next to Camp Augusta.
