About the Property
3 bedroom, 2 bath home on wolf creek and yet close to town
Our country home sits above Wolf Creek overlooking our beautiful wooded 1 acre property. We are just 2 miles from downtown Nevada City.
It is the perfect get-away if you are seeking privacy and natural beauty. Enjoy beautiful views of the forest and our own private Pond from the deck. Wake up to the sound of Wolf Creek and birds. In the evenings you will hear the frogs and see the stars from the deck. Enjoy a barbeque with the family on the deck.
The home is perfect for family fun, a quiet getaway or a group. We have 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, family room, living room with beautiful wood burning fireplace and an updated fully equipped kitchen. The home features beautiful windows out to the woods and hardwood floors, new carpeting in the bedrooms for those chilly mornings. There are 2 king beds, one queen and a double futon in the family room. The home can very comfortably accommodate 8 people and lots of room for kids and sleeping bags in the family room.
We are a short 5 minute drive from historic Nevada City's restaurants, shops, galleries and special events. In addition to Nevada City, there are many wineries just a short drive away.
We are at 3500 feet altitude and so we get some snow and it makes for a lot of fun snow play and a cozy evening in front of the fireplace in the high ceiling living room. The sloping driveway is perfect for sledding!
In the spring and summer take advantage of our close proximity to the hiking trail that follows along the Nevada County Irrigation channel (a man-made stream). The area is perfect for hiking, biking and playing! We are very close to an amazing mountain-bike trail entrance that goes for 120 miles! (For the hard core biker….)
Or just take a book out on the deck or cuddle in front of the fire and relax.
• Sugar Bowl and Boreal Ridge Ski Resorts are just 45 minutes away.
• Sledding down your own driveway!
• Snowshoeing on the property or on the trails.
• Come at Christmas time and enjoy the Nevada City Victorian Christmas celebration.
• Wine Tasting at local wineries.
• Yuba River is close by and offers fishing, kayaking, sunning and general water fun.
• The Nevada Theater, where Mark Twain read in the 1860s, still features monthly plays
• In July, the 150-year-old town closes two blocks to cars and lets artisans take over with booths selling wine, craft cheeses, and local veggies.
We have an assortment of games and puzzles for the whole family at our house on Wolf Creek. So when you return after an active day of skiing, hiking, rafting, or fishing, you can enjoy a game together. We also have TVs and DVD players to watch a movie in front of the fire.
Check in time is 3 pm and checkout is 11 am. If you need a different arrangement please contact us - we will try to accommodate. thanks

Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: We purchased this lovely home in 2012 . We are bay area locals and sought a home that was 'in the country' and yet not too far to drive for weekends. We fell in love with the great little town of Nevada City, its shops, restaurants, gold rush history and special events. Our home is close to town, wineries, skiing in the winter rafting, hiking and more. We bought this to be a family home for our children and grandchildren and are now able to share it with you!
Why the Owner Chose Nevada City, CA, USA:
The Wolf Creek House is the perfect blend of country and activities. The house is 5 miles to Nevada City, close to wineries (many with no charge and all with no lines!), skiing, rafting, hiking, shopping and great restaurants! The home itself is spacious and yet cozy, is nestled in the pine trees and has trails on the property as well. This is a special home and location and we look forward to sharing it with you.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
You can hear the sound of Wolf Creek year round. The creek feeds our private and very special pond. You can BBQ on the deck in the beautiful spring, summer and fall months. The ceiling in the living is high and the fireplace adds the perfect amount of warmth on a cold evening or morning. We have restored a small sleeping cottage for summer months - it has bunk beds and is furnished as our bunk house. Great for kids or adults in the summer months.
