Just 2.5 miles from downtown Nevada City you'll find Baby Bear's Cottage, with your own private hot tub, with a view of the waterfall and pond, on 5 wooded acres, adjacent to Papa Bear's Timber Lodge (listing # 46584).This cozy log cottage can be rented alone or for additional space when renting Papa Bear's Lodge. It is an ideal location for relaxing or exploring Nevada City or the South Yuba River, both only minutes away by car.
In the heart of downtown Nevada City (2.5 miles) and Grass Valley (5 miles) you'll find great food, outstanding live theater and wonderful galleries and shops. Travel by car to skiing, river or lake kayaking and swimming. There are many bicycle trails through the surrounding hills and plenty of wine tasting venues. Local and out-of-town musicians can be heard almost any night of the week.
Check the Chamber of Commerce web site at the bottom of this page for information on the many special events happening in the area.
Try your hand at gold panning at the Yuba, and visit the Historic Empire Mine. This area is ideal for mountain bikers, kayakers and hikers, and, for those looking for a romantic getaway.
Lake Vera is a small lake surrounded by summer camps and used exclusively by them. ( Our guests have no access.) Our cabins are located on 5 acres next to Camp Augusta. In the summer months (late May to mid August) you can hear 'happy camp sounds' as children enjoy swimming, zip lining and singing around the camp fire, then off to bed by 9:30, quiet hour.

About Rene and Drue
Rene had always wanted a log home, ever since she was a child. When we found this property in 2000, we knew it was where we wanted to live and continue raising our son. We have three cabins on the property, all of which are now vacation rentals: Papa Bear's Lodge, Mama Bear's Cabin and Baby Bear's Cottage. We lived in the main lodge for a umber of years until our son as grown and on his own. Now we live in town next to Rene's pottery studio. You will see some of her pots in the cabins. We love our guests who are all fantastic and take wonderful care when renting our cabins.

What makes this Cabin unique
Even though we are only 3 mles from the center of town, you feel like you are out in the woods. In the sumer time, the children's camp next door emits founds of laughter and activity. Some of our renters have even taken a ride on the zip line which is high up in the tree tops. In the fall winter and spring is the quiet time. The cabins are decorated with art of all kinds, and cozy comfortable furniture. The setting in the open woods is very special, and we have loved watching the generations of dear, squirrel and turkey families wander through. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we have!

Baby Bear Birthday Weekend
We had a great time at the Baby Bear cabin. The pictures don't do it justice. They took great care of us and made everything special. The waterfall by the hot tub is great.
We will definitely return, and may look at some of the other cabins on the property if we bring a larger family group.
Thanks, Pappa Bear!
Peaceful getaway close to town
My husband and I stayed in the Mama Bear Cabin during the first weekend in February, 2018. We needed a quite place where we could focus on completing our annual planning and also a place close enough to restaurants. Nevada City Retreats worked out perfectly for us. The hosts, Drue and Renee provided a very clean, comfortable, peaceful place. We also enjoyed the private hot tub located in the beautiful outdoors. The full size fridge and stove, and the BBQ make it easy to cook meals there. We highly recommend this venue if you are looking for peace, solitude, going on a nice walk and eating in or out, all in a beautiful environment!
Comfortable. Well stocked.Could not have asked for better.
Location was perfect, serene and close to town!!!!
Thank you to the owners for their friendliness and attention to comfort and detail.
Charming, private and close to wonderful swimming holes and downtown Nevada City!
The property is so lovingly cared for and the hot tub outside your bedroom door surrounded by forest and a waterfall/pond were such luxuries!
Country Retreat near quaint Nevada City and Yuba River
This cabin was great! Cute, clean, private, and awesome hot tub. Very close to the Yuba River and quaint Nevada City. Had a great time!
Perfect place to unwind and relax
My husband and I have stayed in these cabins twice now and we have nothing but incredible things to say! The beds are comfortable, the hot tub was heated and ready for us, and the cabin was comfy and beautiful. We come fairly far to stay here because they are our favorites!!! The price is right and the staff are a joy to work with. If you are looking for a place to refresh, this is it!
We have an abundance of high quality musical events, live theater and art exhibits/shows throughout the year, excellent restaurants, specialty ice cream shops, fun boutiques and art galleries, as well as parades, a draft horse show, and Victorian and Cornish Christmas events, just to name a few.
