CREEK SIDE, HANDCRAFTED STUDIO 1/2 MILE FROM NEVADA CITY

Nevada City Cottage Rental Photos and Description

House, Studio + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

This secluded getaway, we call Bullwinkle’s Bungalow, is just a one half-mile walk from the center of the historic Gold Rush town of Nevada City. You will find our artistic studio along a quite country road, set off by stonewalls, beautiful forests and mountain creeks. Walking, biking and jogging trails will connect you to miles of wildlife habitat, historic mining sites and beautiful Deer Creek Canyon.

• A 500 sq. ft. studio, quiet and cozy, with artistic touches throughout.

• Italian slate floors provide a Mediterranean atmosphere for cooking, quiet reading and socializing.

• For sleeping or naps there is a cozy loft, with one queen bed. There is also a futon couch that folds into a second double bed if needed.

• A private deck overlooks Bullwinkle Creek. A short trail leads one to beach and swim hole on Deer Creek.

• From the deck, one can access a network of trails. They meander through the woods and along the creeks and connect to local walking, jogging and biking trails.

• Free Wi-Fi access.

• Full kitchen amenities as well as linens are provided

• Less than 10 minutes walk to the historic district of Nevada City, where you will find restaurants, activities, theaters, shops and festivals.

In Nevada City, visit unique shops, art galleries, and wine tasting rooms, dine in world-class restaurants, and enjoy live music and theater. Nestled amongst a mix of cedar, pine, and an assortment of deciduous trees in the Northern Sierra Nevada Foothills, the beauty of Nevada City is second to none.

Many come just to see the fall colors explode as cooler temperatures arrive. Located within a one-hour-drive to popular ski and snow sledding areas at the higher elevations, Nevada City is a popular winter retreat as well. Spring brings fields of wildflowers and warmer weather attracts hikers, cyclists, sunbathers and nature lovers of all ages. The Yuba River is famous for its natural beauty and refreshing, clear swimming holes.

There's plenty to see and do. Enjoy events such as the Nevada City Bicycle Classic, the SYRCL Environmental Film Festival, Victorian Christmas, Constitution Day Parade, numerous farmers markets, and the 4th of July Parade.

About The Owner

Bullwinkle’s bungalow is next to our family home on the land where we have resided for 30 years. We were drawn to the Sierra Nevada because of an appreciation of nature and lifestyle that celebrates the beauty of the land. For us it was the ideal place to settle and raise a family. Having spent periods of our lives traveling and living in parts of Europe and Latin America, we take great pleasure in sharing our surroundings with travelers.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1980

Why The Owner chose Nevada City

Our place gives us the enjoyment of being in the country with creeks, forests and wildlife as well as being a short walk to town where we can enjoy restaurants and entertainment.

Very relaxing!

  • 5 of 5
This small and quaint studio apartment was perfect for us. When we arrived on Thursday night, Rich, the owner, came out to greet us and welcome us to his home. The studio is right next to their home but Rich and Joey have made it feel very private. Rich excitedly told us about the trails around the area, the restaurants, and the events happening in Nevada City (Artwalk, Farmers Market, etc...),.My husband and I really enjoyed our time. It was exactly what e needed!

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I are both writers and we rented Bullwinkle's cabin for a working retreat for most of the month of August. The cottage is comfortable and the setting is lovely. It was great to just park our car-- you can walk into town or get on a hiking trail or take a dip in Deer Creek. Rich and Joey are wonderful hosts-- available if you need something and respectful of privacy. We greatly enjoyed their company. It was a satisfying working vacation--- thank you Joey and Rich:).

Magical Spot

  • 5 of 5
Bullwinkle Bungalow is, by far, the best "hidden gem" we've come across in all our california cabin getaways. The hosts were perfect, there if we needed something, and not there in terms of feeling total privacy. The cabin had everything we needed, and we cooked meals everyday. The surrounding area is absolutely stunning. We know Nevada City well, and this location was the most beautiful. Being able to walk to town down a lovely country road in less than 15 minutes was a real plus in terms of location. To get a meal, have a coffee, an ice cream, enjoy a street fair on a warm summer evening, all these things were right at our fingertips throughout the day. Best of all, and we really mean it, was the swimming hole a very short walk from the cabin. This swim hole is one of the most beautiful we've encountered in our california travels. It is small, secluded, very private, and surrounded by huge rounded, eon-eroded rocks, a tiny little waterfall, with both shade and direct sun at any time of day. We spent hours, nearly everyday, at this amazing spot. The Yuba river, with some of the best river swimming in the state of California, is a short drive away. WIth reluctance, as we really don't want to let the secret out, Bullwinkle Bungalow is that one perfect cabin in the woods we're all looking for.

Magical!

  • 5 of 5
The location of this property makes it a winner. It is a 10 minute walk to town. The property itself has multiple trails, nooks, sitting spots, nature galore, gardens, and a fantastic little "tea house" turret atop an old redwood stump, overlooking a cascading creek. At the bottom of the property this small tributary empties into Deer Creek, right at a rock landing that looks like it was softened and molded by the long love of water works. Magical! The hosts are warm and helpful too.

enchanting

  • 5 of 5
We stayed there with our family of 5...including 3 little girls. (which is fine as long as you stay with your kids, there is a high drop off the balcony and lots of places to get lost in the forest that surrounds the home. Make sure the kids are old enough that you can trust them in these types of enviornments) We had an enchanting and unique experience...coming from Southern Utah terrain it was awesome. We had lived in the area before and knew the touristy places to go and had a blast. The couple that owns the property was very helpful and kind and available if we needed anything.
We would totally stay again.
A few things, I felt like the pics of the inside made it look larger than it was. however..it was just fine. Big Spiders inside. Its part of being in nature I guess. :) No washing machine...we planned accordingly. There were plenty of blankets and sheets and towels. I felt like it was all clean. No TV...(no big deal to us, just saying)

An unforgettable weekend in a romantic tree top bungalow!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I absolutely fell in love with this place! We stayed for a few days to celebrate our first wedding anniversary and had a hard time leaving. While packing up to head out we were actually planning for the next weekend get-a-way! The hosts are incredible! They had a sweet note with a bottle of wine for us upon arrival! The grounds are one of a kind! We enjoyed morning coffee and yoga on the main deck, had picnics in the tea house and enjoyed many walks/hikes while working up a sweat to then head to the private swimming hole near by. We loved that there was no TV - just the sound of the creek and lots of birds! It is also a short 15 minute walk to downtown Nevada City. The locals are wonderful, great shops, good eats and several tasting rooms with some really good wines! It truly is the best place to relax and spend a special weekend with someone true and dear to your heart! We will be back very soon! You won't be disappointed as it is a very unique space and tons of fun!
