About Gary Hoover
As California Natives, we are both outdoor enthusiasts. We, and our large family have been coming to, and vacationing in the woods near Scotts Flat Lake, the South Yuba river, and Nevada City for years! As avid dirt bikers, mountain bike riders, 4-wheelers, skiers, boaters, Kayaker's and hikers, the beautiful area of Lost Mine Retreat is where we've found our happy place. When it came available for purchase, we had to have it. Some day, when we're able to, we plan to retire here.
Gary Hoover purchased this House in 2017
Why Gary Hoover chose Nevada City
As previously stated, some day, we will retire here. In the mean time, we're hoping to share our investment with other travelers who have similar interests, passions and ideals. We're confident you will fall in love with Lost Mine Retreat as we have!
What makes this House unique
The location of the house gives one the illusion of being quite secluded, yet it's located in an active neighborhood that borders the south shore of Scotts Flat Lake. There are breathtaking views, wildlife and quiet serenity.

This log cabin is simply beautiful. If you are looking to disconnect from the daily hustle and bustle of everyday city life this is the place to do it.
Glamorous getaway in the woods
This house exceeded our expectations!! Roomy, clean, comfy well-stocked house. Fluffy towels, comfy beds, good hot showers with treehouse-type views in a remote setting but only 20 minutes to town. My favorite thing was to lie on the hanmock outside(I have never experienced such quiet!) and several times young deer passed right by me.
We had a family emergency and the owner graciously accommodated us.
3 bathrooms with showers! No one had to wait.
Recommend the Stone House for nearby fine dining. Really miising that lovely space already.
We were so impressed with Gary and the incredible home. We were so excited when we pulled up and saw a home that was truly loved by the owner. Every detail of the home is truly special. We could not have been more relaxed in our mountain getaway cabin. Thanks Gary we will be back soon.
Weekend summer getaway
Gary’s cabin was a perfect getaway for our two families with 3 kids ages 7-10. Gary was super responsive, check in was clear and easy, and the cabin itself is lovely, clean and comfortable. We stayed in and grilled, shopped in Nevada city, and had an amazing day swimming on the Yuba. Couldn’t have asked for more. Thanks!
great cozy space for a retreat! loved seeing the stars and milky way at night! so clear! Swimming in Scott's flat lake was amazing and it was so close!
Great place for family vacation
We came to Nevada City for a family wedding and vacation with our sons and their families, including two young grandchildren. The house was perfect for all of our needs, and we enjoyed coffee on the deck, napping in the hammock and cooking together in the well equipped kitchen. Nevada City and the surrounding area were amazing and we squeezed in several hikes and swimming in the Yuba River in between the wedding festivities.
Thanks for the great review. We're super pumped you enjoyed Lost Mine Retreat and the surrounding attractions. We've always loved the area and spend as much time on the Yuba as we can! Hope you'll come back to see us again.
