Nevada City House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4). Barn available to rent for weddings

Our 2 bedroom guest house, with a rural feel, yet only a lovely stroll of less than 3/4 of a mile to the heart of downtown Nevada City, is not just a 'vacation rental'. It is a meticulously maintained 1,100 sf home -- Totally separate, private, sophisticated, quiet, one-of-a-kind, architecturally designed, light filled retreat down a long and private driveway. Honeycomb Ranch is a non-smoking property located in a 'neighborhood' of 4 ranchettes, each 5 acres apart. Our guests consistently tell us they are delighted to discover our unique, peaceful and comfortable guest house. It is the perfect retreat/get-away for a couple or a couple of friends or a small family. The master bedroom is very large with a pillowtop kingsize mattress and a sliding glass door opening onto a deck with meadow and forest views. The furniture in the living room is extremely comfortable, the kitchen is fully equipped and the views from every window are beautiful. Just bring your suitcase. Everything else is provided to make your stay relaxing and fun.

Wake up to the sound of birds and end the night on the deck gazing at millions of stars. It is easy to unwind in this special home with its zen-like feel situated on 5 pastoral acres of open meadows, pine, oak and fruit trees, organic gardens and a picturesque old barn. Wonderful, easy country walks from your door abound and hiking is minutes away. Tucked away in a hidden place with such a rural feel, you will be amazed to find what a very short and easy walk it is past beautiful Victorians to the bustling, historic, charming Gold Country downtown of Nevada City. In combination with 'Twin City' Grass Valley, 3 miles away, there is more than an abundance of great restaurants, world class live entertainment, shops, galleries and museums to keep you busy.

If you are parents or grandparents with family living here, it is the perfect spot. If you live in San Francisco and want to make a quick getaway out of the fog, it is just a 2 1/2 hour drive. Reno is only an hour and 15 minutes away and Sacramento is just an hour. Easy drives to come to a 'world away'! Now is the right time to make your reservations for summer to swim in the Yuba, hike, stroll to Farmers Markets, attend music festivals and just enjoy. Weddings abound in our area from Spring through the Fall so if you are part of the wedding party or a guest coming from out of town, make your reservations now. Staying in our guest house instead of a hotel will make the event that much more memorable.

The Yuba River and Nevada CIty's Scotts Flat Lake are each only 10 minutes away and the North Shore of Lake Tahoe is an hour. Come now and you might be lucky to get a light dusting of snow, Spring is almost here and the daffodils and quince are already blooming and the frogs are singing. In the early Summer, the spectacular Yuba River is a beautiful place to hike, or settle in on a huge boulder and watch the water go by. In July through early September when the water warms up, there is no better place to be but the Yuba and Scotts Flat Lake, which is also 10 minutes away and is great for kayaking, sailing, swimming and picnicking. Nevada County is famous for its Fall colors and you don't even have to leave our property to see a gorgeous display of brilliant colors. Reserve some time now to stay at Honeycomb Ranch in the Spring, Summer or Fall before it gets all booked up.

BTW, Winter is gorgeous also and full of old fashioned street fairs

and close to ski-ing.

If you like outdoor activities, relaxing, eating gourmet food, theater, musical events including classical music festivals that rival San Francisco and shopping in boutiques, and/or sitting quietly reading a book or meditating while watching birds soaring overhead, you will enjoy staying at Honeycomb Ranch while taking in all that Nevada County has to offer.

Mike, my husband, and I have lived in Nevada City for over 33 years and have raised four children here. We have lived at Honeycomb Ranch for over 22 years. We both love Nevada County and have taken advantage of all the wonderful things that there are to do here including sailing and kayaking on Scotts Flat Lake, cross country skiing, biking, hiking, and attending many of the cultural events on an on-going basis. Having lived here for so long, I can send you in the right direction for anything you would be interested in doing. Both originally from Southern California, we would never want to live anywhere else but here. We travel often but always look forward to coming home. We are pictured here with our dog, Barley, who has become our official VRBO greeter.

Nina Snegg purchased this house in 2002

We chose to build a guest house on our property in a totally private spot so our friends and grown family members would have a wonderful place to stay when they came to visit. With our children now all living in other parts of the country, we felt the time was right to make our guest home available to people who are interested in coming to our area.

The best part of staying on Honeycomb Ranch is the tranquil feeling, the beauty and rural quality of being here and the closeness to town. Our guest house is a very special place, carefully designed to put your soul at ease. It is very quiet and peaceful and the vistas are beautiful. For us, it serves as a retreat and anyone who comes here and stays in our guest house feels the same way.

this place is really really comfortable and quiet. We were there during cold weather and this cottage is toasty warm the whole time. It must have great insulation. Its in a beautiful neighborhood with nice places to go for walks. We found it very relaxing, both the location and the cottage itself. I would stay here again in a heartbeat and would recommend it to a friend. Very Nice!

We stayed a week and had a wonderful time. This is our 4th year coming to Nevada City after the holidays, but the first time staying in a VRBO. We won't stay anywhere else if we can help it. The property is very close to the center of town. Home is quiet, clean, has large open living space and a beautiful view from the living room, deck and master bedroom. We appreciate not being exposed to toxic cleaning chemicals. So many nice touches from the bed linens, thick bath towels, every appliance you could possibly need and tastefully decorated. We'll be back.

This Guest Home is beautiful, very well cared for, well stocked and supplied for everything you need, special detail by the owners made us feel very welcome. The home is just as the pictures showed, if not better. We had a very relaxing vacation during the Christmas Holiday while visiting family in the area. The view looking out over the back is beautiful & serene.

We spent a delightful week at Honeycomb Ranch in mid-December. Because our purpose was to explore and photograph the Gold Country, we were out at dawn and back after dark. On these icy winter nights, it was wonderful to return to this warm and comfy home. Bright Christmas decorations added to the spirit of the season. And, somehow, Nina and Mike arranged for a cover of snow to blanket the porch and yard. Talk about providing your guests with the right ambiance! This is a wonderful retreat with friendly and thoughtful hosts. Great in any season.

Beautiful Setting, Close to Town, Quiet, Very Clean!

My sister and I stayed here for our annual sisters' retreat, and had a wonderful vacation. The setting of the house, and view from the balcony are beautiful. Close to town, approximately a 1 mile walk. The walk into town is spectacular! Beautiful trees and fall colors. The house was very clean, comfortable, and it was very quiet. We will be returning again just as soon as we can. Thank you Mike & Nina! :-)
