About The Owner

Carol and Scott have spent the last decade working with the Batwa pygmies of SW Uganda. In the 1970s we worked in Kathmandu, Nepal where our youngest son was born. We live next door and Scott is a doc in town. We both love to fly-fish and hike. Life is good!

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The Owner chose Downieville

We have been coming up to this area for years from the time our children were small and when Scott got a job in the area we decided we wanted to buy a place. The property we purchased had two houses on it and we thought why not rent one and let other people enjoy the beauty of this area.

What makes this house unique

This a true mountain retreat, close to town but private. If you enjoy nature this is the place to be!

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We booked 3 days and ended up staying 5. We would have stayed longer but it was booked for the weekend. The hosts were great, they had great suggestions about where to hike. The location was perfect, the kids could ride their bikes to town to get ice cream by themselves. We borrowed the hosts inter tubes and floated down the river in the backyard into town. We'll definitely be back.

Good spot

  • 4 of 5
Excellent location on the Yuba River. Comfortable and homey. Easy walk to dinner and downtown. Sound of the river to put you to sleep; riverbank to sit beside anytime. House is right on the road from downtown, but traffic noise was absolutely no problem midweek.

Labor Day Weekend Get-Away!

  • 5 of 5
The house was beautiful and close to town. The Downie River was right out the backdoor, with a beautiful, large rock for the whole family to hang out on. We fished, went for a few walks and a few drives and had an awesome weekend!
The house was well stocked with plenty of dishes and towels and books. It was clean and cool. We look forward to coming back again!

Cozy and Private

  • 5 of 5
We stayed 3 nights at this beautiful cabin, it was clean and private and having two bathrooms with showers was a definite plus! It was well stocked with towels, toiletries, dishes and cooking utensils, and plenty of interesting reading material. We especially enjoyed the Downie River right out the back door. There was a huge, beautiful rock to sit on and fish, sunbathe or gold pan. We had a blast and the 3 year old boy with us even caught a trout! We will definitely return!
