In- Town Accommodation Just 2 Blocks From Nevada City's 'Downtown' Attractions
About Graham Hayes
We are a San Francisco family who fell in love with Nevada City at first sight when dropping our oldest daughter to sleep away camp on the Yuba River in July of 2013. We stumbled upon 534 Spring Street that weekend, with it's proximity being only a block behind Nevada City's Broad Street commercial district, and 6 miles from the unbelievably beautiful Yuba River, and we knew that this was somewhere we wanted to retreat from our busy city life in San Francisco.
Graham Hayes purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why Graham Hayes chose Nevada City
The charm of this property is unparalleled. Although there may be other guests on-site, there is a real sense of privacy and seclusion as it's located on nearly a full-acre with fruit and nut bearing trees, vast landscape and an incredible variety of plant life....yet it's only a 5 minute walk to all of the city's awesome cafes and restaurants, theaters, nightlife, hikes, bike trails, and more. We love it!
What makes this Apartment unique
Our entire property consists of a spacious 3-bedroom home with an additional 2-room in-law suite, a separate garden studio on the side of the house, and also a large 2-room barn on the rear of the lot. All 4 'compartments' of the property have separate entrances and are very different spaces, yet all updated with new flooring, Restoration Hardware linens, towels and cutlery. All new Beauty rest mattresses throughout the property in all bedrooms, and plush down and down-alternative pillows. Comfort abounds in every element of the property. We redesigned the home, barn, in-law, and garden-studio by blending the modern updates of today's style of living with an influx of locally sourced antiques and accessories, maintaining a regard for the property's eclectic and historical 'cabin-like' past, having been built in 1851 by two Irish brothers who 'struck it rich' in the early days of the 1849 Gold Rush.

Convenient walking distance to town center
We were grateful for the comfortable accommodations so close to town.
The place was amazing and cozy and parking was awesome. Love the environment.
Loved The Barn. Thank you for making that work out for us!!
Very enjoyable will be back!
Could not work the TV. It needed an access code which we were
not provided. The wireless network ATT088 did not appear on the list of available networks. I called the owners number listed and did not get a call back. So we had no tv or internet. Not a big deal overall, but frustrating because we expected them.
Great location and atmosphere
This property was exceptional to other options because it was just a couple short blocks from downtown (we never used our cars) for shopping or dinner. Completely comfortable walking around at night. We liked that we weren't right in town and in a more secluded, tranquil location. We had the suite and the barn - perfect for multiple family members in close proximity. We made dinner in the barn and ate in one evening. They have everything you would need. Very organized and clean. Beds and bedding really comfortable. Beautiful views all around. One feels like they are staying in a park! Owners incredibly responsive and very nice!
Beautiful grounds; cozy room
Cozy, warm basement apartment. The grounds are much nicer than you can see in the photos. There's a lovely pool, hot tub, and bbq area. It's a short walk to the downtown area. Would happily come back.
The mountain biking in this area is world class, in fact Nevada city host to the annual Nevada City Bicycle Classic held on Fathers Day weekend, it's one of the premiere sporting events in the Sierra foothills, the largest and oldest bike race on the West Coast, and the second-oldest race in the nation.
