Guestbook comments from the owner

The Yuba River Retreat is incredible! My cousins and I enjoyed a reunion weekend with children of all ages. About 20 people in all and we were completely comfortable. There was not a thing that we had wished was supplied that was not there for us. Beautiful landscaping, easy hike to the river and waterfall, a giant deck overlooking the most beautiful canyon, an area for a safe fire for an evening of building smores and singing camp fire songs, and plenty of space in the home. We did not feel crowded at all. We created wonderful memories at the Yuba River Retreat and look forward to another visit.

Beautiful, spacious, nature at your doorstep

  • 4 of 5
I hosted my yoga retreat here at the house. An exceptionally beautiful space with all the space you need. The rooms are beautifully furnished, and there's plenty of places for snuggling in with a book and hot tea. The kitchen is well stocked, and our caterer (recommended by Alicia) was outstanding. The yoga room fit 9 easily, and has great morning light. The outdoor deck (which we didn't use for yoga on this retreat, only mind-blowing stargazing) would be another great alternative for yoga.

I love that this house not only has a second floor (the suite) available, which we did use, but also is so close to hikes right on the property. The location is ideal for those seeking a hike, a river day, or a bit of small town shopping and dining. My guests did it all, and were so in love with this place, they have begged me to do it again next year.

This retreat house is a gift!

Our Weekend Retreat at the Yuba River Retreat

  • 5 of 5
Our group of 9 women totally enjoyed our annual weekend retreat! This was our second time there, and each of us enjoyed it as much as the first time! The deer, squirrels, trails, and beautiful oak trees enhance the property. The kitchen is great for cooking for a group, and the new dining room table (beautiful!) and living room area gave us plenty of room to gather together. It's also lovely to sit on the deck and quietly watch the world go by. We'll happily retreat there again!

Perfect location for a small yoga retreat

  • 5 of 5
Everyone loved this place and didn't want to leave. The kitchen was great for cooking for about 20 people. The outside deck was perfect for morning practice (though it could be expanded and enlarged and some sort of shade structure would be nice). The trails were amazing and the creek was incredible. All in all we had a wonderful time.

nice stay st yuba retreat

  • 5 of 5
The house was exactly as described,it was very beautiful inside and had charming details, it was also spotlessly clean.we had 10 people and they're was plenty of room. we did not use the deck as much as we wanted, it was very hot that weekend and it was to hot to use during the day, but the evenings were pleasant..the river on the property is very nice, but be warned it is quite a trek on.the way back.overall we really enjoyed the yuba retreat house and would recommend it.

Excellent - We will be back!

  • 5 of 5
We are a party of 8 (4 married couples) and were absolutely pleased with our stay at the Yuba Retreat. The website on VRBO is very representative at what you get, except that I think there are only 7 bedrooms, not 8? Although the house is big enough to set up one of the dens & still have plenty of room.
A vase of fresh flowers was placed on the beautiful dining-room table to greet us as we walked in. We very much appreciated that there was wi-fi available and a guest binder with very useful information. The directions to get to the house were excellent.
We stayed from Friday to Sunday and cooked all our meals - there was nothing lacking as far as kitchen amenities are concerned, and the Webber grill worked out wonderfully on Saturday night. Our party includes tea and coffee drinkers, so we all appreciated the new coffee/hot water machine and the variety of available teas. The new double-oven was awesome (we used both for Friday night dinner and our gourmet breakfast!). Everything was clean and in good working order.
The house has 5 rooms and 3 bathrooms upstairs and a downstairs 2 bd/1 bath self-contained unit with kitchen. There is plenty of room to spread out as well as to gather close - comfortable furniture and VERY comfortable beds! The couple who stayed downstairs were so happy to have their own kitchen ... especially coffee! The pool & darts room was so much fun, and there was plenty of wood for the wood-burning fireplaces - although we only used it once (we appreciated the central heat:)). The weather was perfect on Saturday, so we had our lunch on the deck overlooking the forest across the driveway from the house.
Four of us hiked down to the falls - the trails are well-maintained and the scenery is breathtaking!! We also noticed the disc golf equipment - awesome! It felt great to feel so private yet be so close to Nevada City and Grass Valley. My husband and I stopped at Safeway in Grass Valley before arriving at the house - so we didn't have to leave (and didn't want to). We definitely recommend this place!
Thanks so much! We will be back!

Owner's Response: I'm so happy you enjoyed your stay to the fullest! When I listed the queen foldout couch in the livingroom den as a bed, Vrbo recorded it as an 8th bedroom. I'll email them to see if they can change the listing. We can't wait to have you back when you can spend even more time outdoors, cooling off from the summer heat with a swim in the river.

Yuba River Retreat

  • 4 of 5
Tucked into a scenic setting in the Sierra Foothills just outside of Nevada City is this charming house with plenty of room for a group stay. There were seven people in our group. The house was very clean and well maintained as well as the outside area around the house. The deck was a delight. There is an easy hike for most people to some waterfalls on a creek that empty into the Yuba River.

Heading down Purdon Road in front of the house leads you to Purdon Crossing bridge…a beautiful spot on the Yuba River. The house reflected fairly well what was shown in the photos.

The lodging is about 10 minutes from downtown Nevada City with some nice eateries…a standout being New Moon Cafe…a foodies gastronomic delight!

The kitchen in the house is a little tight navigating around with some quirky spots for light switches. Could use some more utensils, bowls and the like but enough to get by.

The owner, Alicia, is nice and responsive and has provided a wonderful spot to get away and enjoy each other's company in a beautiful natural setting.

Owner's Response: Robert-Glad you enjoyed your stay and returned for a second retreat! Your note reminded me of the increased rooms we have now and need for more forks and utensils. I ran out to the kitchen store and we are stocked up with a set of 16 for your next visit.
