About the Property
Tahoe Style A-Frame 4 Bedroom, 2 Bath Lakeside, In The Trees
Camp-Run-A-Muck is ideally suited for anyone desiring a retreat from the ordinary and 'the daily grind'.
Perfect for a romantic and holiday getaway, several couples, a group of good friends, families, a hideaway, a pre or post wedding rendevous, a ski (snow or water) lodge, or just a place to watch the world go by.
Two large bedrooms are upstairs (with Queen sized beds, with pull out twin and full sized sleeper sofas) along with a master bathroom suite with a shower stall with his and hers sinks.
Downstairs bedrooms feature a antique full sized bed (unfortunatley the largest they made around the turn of the century), a pair of bunk beds in the game room with an additional Queen sized sleeper sofa.
Living room also has a Queen sized sleeper sofa close to the woodstove, perfect for those nights when the snow's coming down and you just want to cuddle up with your favorite person or persons.
Downstairs bathroom has a tub shower with period furnishings and wallcoverings. Upstairs bathroom has a stall shower and dual sinks.
Both bathrooms feature pull chain wall mounted toliets and premium resort quality extra soft and plush towels.
Handicapped or disabled access to house easily made by covered level ramp to front wrap-around porch and deck. House (main level), porch and deck now wheelchair accessible. Please contact owners for more information about accessibility.
Unbelievable year round living with cozy Spring, comfortable Summers, and heartwarming Fall and Wintertime ambiance surround the countryside around Camp Run-A-Muck.
Located within a short 3 minute walk to our local lake, the featured house is located on a short, quiet, up hill cul-de-sac, where we're surrounded by mature evergreen trees that even grow through our huge wraparound deck, which can be the perfect place to relax with your morning coffee, a place in the fresh air to start your day, an evening destination for a cocktail or two, or a stop over on your way to luxuriate in the 4 - 6 person hot tub on the lower deck.
After your day is finally done, retire to your private comfortably appointed luxurious bedrooms (with European Style featherbed mattress or Tempurpedic foundations. 400 - 560 thread count sheets with down like and down alternative memory pillows that will cradle you for the ultimate in a good nights rest.
All bedrooms come with flat screen HDTV's, DVD players and stereo systems. Most bedrooms also boast Sony IPOD docking clock radio's.
To take off the evening chill, the house comes with two propane fireplaces along with a high efficiency wood stove in the main living room.
All bedrooms have ceiling fans and cozy electric baseboard heating, perfect for those of you that like to sleep with your windows open.
The master bedroom comes with one of the two gas fireplaces so you don't have haul firewood to create a 'spark'.
Our lake has a recently upgraded multi-million dollar boat launch ramp, which will be perfect to put in your ski boat, sailboat, or fishing boat. As it's a drinking water reservoir, jet skis and sea-doos are not allowed.
The San Francisco Chronicle newspaper has described our lake (which is called Scott's Flat Reservoir), as one of the Sierra Nevada's best kept secrets.
At approximately 760 acres, the lake is roughly 3 1/2 X 1 mile long with up to 7 miles of shoreline. It is actually large enough that a resident fleet of sailboats can dot the water's surface during the sailing season. Most mornings, the lake's water is like glass.
Wildlife and solitude abound here. Bald eagles, ospreys, geese, deer and coyotes are residents here along with the occassional bear, mountain lion, bobcat and fox. Watch where you step!
A local community store is within easy walking distance (perfect for the morning or an after dinner stroll). Downtown Nevada City is approximately 10 - 12 minutes away by car.
Most days and nights (with the exception of the boating season), there can be little to no noise except the wind in the trees. It's hard to describe that to those that live in a world of 'white noise'.
Come, we invite you and your family friends, co-workers or that someone special to escape to our retreat from the real world.
Whether your life is full, or you're now looking for something off the beaten path, we look forward to providing you an fulfilling experience very few people may ever be able to have, where ever you hail from.
Thank you for your interest in our little slice of heaven and we look forward to seeing you in Nevada City.
We have posted a short video presentation on the home and it's layout on YouTube. Please search for "NC Camp Run A Muck Walkthrough 2015".

About the owner: Working toward retirement, Caroline and Craig still reside in the San Francisco area and devote time to our stunning Nevada City home and our other vacation rentals throughout Northern California. We've designed and set up this property to be a home away from home for our family and guests to experience all the luxury and details that we know everyone will enjoy. We have been associated with the hotel and guest client industries and know how to please people. We have been fortunate to extensively travel the world for the last 30 years and have stayed in many upscale hotels and other traveler's accomodations. This has made us realize the little touches and creature comforts that we can provide to make your stay truely memorable. Luxury, ambiance and discretion are paramount with us and is our guiding philosophy for this property. We will be continually posting more pictures of this stunning property to showcase all of its ammenities.
Why the Owner Chose Nevada City, CA, USA:
Camp-Run-A-Muck fit every desire we had for a lakeside mountain getaway that we looked for years to find. Combined with all of the local attractions, plus an easy drive from anywhere in Northern California, and located in the 'heart of gold country', it was an easy choice for us. Almost everything on the property has been updated and to some extent modernized to take full advantage of progress. We know that you'll enjoy this mountain getaway almost as much as we do.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Crafted in the European style, this A-Frame style home boasts a stunning view, location and solitude, all set in a mature evergreen forest bordering the Tahoe Douglass National Forest in Nevada City, California. Extensive woodwork with open beamed ceilings, most rooms come with intricate wooden detailed walls and hand crafted touches. A mixture of unique and modern furnishings and appointments, we have chosen to reflect the historic ambiance of the locale to add to our guest's experience of the property. Vaulted ceilings for the upper Master and rear bedrooms. Spectacular 180 degree panoramic views from the Master bedroom, provide a filtered view through mature towering evergreen trees of our own personal lake. 3 fireplaces provide cozy encompassing warmth should you desire. A well stocked woodshed can guarantee a romantic fire every evening. Crisp evenings, warm days, fresh air and gentle breezes provide that mountain amibiance and feeling intune with the 'real world'. On demand hot water means never running out. Wait till you experience our hot tub while looking up to a field of stars. No local streetlights means almost perfect stargazing. If the conditions are right, our semi-resident flock of bats may delight and entertain you.
