The house is located directly on the Cascade Canal trail, offering 4.5 miles (one way) of virtually flat hiking through the peaceful forest along a beautiful gold rush-era waterway. Direct access to the canal and trail is literally 15 feet outside the back door. There is a large lawn in front of the house and a fenced vegetable garden that is maintained seasonally. The house is up a private driveway on 1.5 acres with only one other house viewable from the property for privacy and seclusion.

There is a wood burning stove in the living room for both warmth and winter woods ambience. Plenty of board games, puzzles and toys for kids young and old. The bookshelves are full of books to read while there, or take with if you become engrossed in one.
Pets are welcome with an additional cleaning fee. Children welcome and will love it here, but know that there is no fence leading to the canal waterway and should be watched closely. Comfortably sleeps 8 adults, additional children welcome in pack'n'plays/floor mats.
We've put a lot of time, energy and thought into making this a special mountain getaway retreat in a very special little town and know that you'll have a wonderful time in our home!
Guests have access to the entire house, including the garage. The home is three stories, including the lower garage/media room level, so it is a requirement to be able to go up and down stairs. Additionally, the house is located on a slight slope with gravel paths and stairs for access to the front door. Being able to navigate slightly loose, uneven terrain is also a necessity.
A local property manager is available for any onsite needs or questions.
While rare, it can snow in Nevada City in the winter and our Cabin is at a slightly higher elevation than town, meaning more snow. There is a partially paved, partial gravel driveway that is on a slope leading up to the house. If there is snow forecast, it's recommended to have a 4WD car and/or have enough food and wood provisions for a cozy weekend snowed in. Snow shovels and sleds provided.
Early Check-In/Late Check-Out: If it can be accommodated (no one else is checking in or out on your arrival or departure day), we can sometimes offer either early or late check out, outside of the typical hours of 4 p.m. check-in/11 a.m. check out, at a rate of $10 per hour. However, we typically will not know if the request will be possible more than 1-2 days prior to check-in. If you know that you'll need an early check-in/late check-out, consider booking another night!
