Property description

When you think of visiting Tahoe or the majestic Sierra Nevada mountain range, THIS is the property you imagine yourself staying in. White Cloud Lodge is a unique, custom designed and built log home retreat. Stunning architecture using whole log construction. Soaring open truss ceilings designed to showcase the incredible long range views and Scotts Flat Lake views. Grand open floor plan with rock wall fireplace, multiple gathering areas, loft, and 7 private sleeping areas. Peaceful setting on 10+ acres with access to Pioneer Trail for hiking, biking and horse riding, but close in to Nevada City/Grass Valley and all the action up at Tahoe.

The amazing rustic log great room flows through to the kitchen and dining areas. 2 bedrooms are accessed behind the kitchen, and on the opposite side of the house, stairs lead down to a private den/sleeping area and a private bedroom. A full bath adjoins these rooms.
Up the stairs from the main level you will find first the master bedroom, and then the loft. The master bedroom has outdoor access to the granny suite, which is two stories. Currently the bottom story is a bedroom and the upper is a kitchenette.

A fenced yard is a wonderful safe place for kids to play. The expansive decks look out over Scotts Flat Lake from the main level, and the lower level has its own private patio.

Walking trails on the 10 acre property are gorgeous, and during the wet season there is a spring-fed swimming hole.

The quaint, historic towns of Grass Valley and Nevada City are a quick 12 minute trip down smooth Highway 20, a beautiful drive. Lake Access is 5 minutes away, and multiple areas for swimming are accessible on the Yuba and Bear Rivers.

Tahoe and all of the ski resorts are 30-45 minutes away. White Cloud Campground is walking distance for any overflow guests you might have.

Car: Necessary

Located in the beautiful Tahoe Forest just east of Nevada City in the heart of California's historic Gold Country, White Cloud Lodge affords guests with the unique opportunity to experience a multitude of activities and cultural experiences.

Historical: The fabulous Empire Mine State Historic Park is in Grass Valley, and pretty much everywhere you go in the area there are museums, attractions, and memorabilia from the gold rush and pioneering days.

Festivals/Markets: Nevada County Fairground is one of the most beautiful in the nation, and plays host to a variety of festivals, fairs, and markets through the year. There are many local farmer's markets and street festivals as well.

Outdoor Sports: Snowshoeing right off the property during winter, hiking or biking on the adjacent Pioneer Trail, snow resorts as little as 30 minutes away, river sports, a nearby lake...it is an outdoor sports mecca.

Shopping: Local shops and commerce thrive in Nevada City and Grass Valley, while Tahoe, Truckee, and even Reno are within an agreeable driving distance.

 

Owner info

About the owner: We are a large family that enjoys all of the natural beauty of Tahoe National Forest. Currently we reside in Southern California but return to our dream home in the woods as often as we can.

Why the Owner Chose Nevada City, CA, USA:
The feeling of peace that this property gives you is incredible. Hear the wind blow through the tops of the evergreens as you watch a storm blow in over Scott's Flat Lake and sip a beverage while you enjoy your family and friends on the deck.
