Overview

About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3)

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.

Rene and Drue purchased this cabin in 2000

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks very much, Rene! We LOVED Baby Bear's Cottage and definitely plan to

come again. We're also telling everyone we know about your wonderful

property. We hated to leave!

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!

Perfect place to unwind and relax

  • 5 of 5

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!

Charming, retreat cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late Friday night, lights were on welcoming us! We attended the film festival held in Nevada City and Grass Valley, the location was perfect for attending both cities.

The cabin was very spacious for two people. The kitchen was well equipped for making meals. We had a little problem with the stove, called Rene' and she came right away to fix the problem.

The only drawback was our time in the cabin was short, unable to use the hot tub or walk the grounds. WIll be back in the future!
