Why Martin Holden chose Nevada City
Close to historic Nevada City, with its galleries, restaurants, and exciting nightlife. We are also near Gold Rush historical sites including the Empire Mine, and Malakoff Diggings State Park. We are 15 minutes from the best Yuba River swimming holes! Convenient, via Highway 20, to High Sierra hiking and skiing.
What makes this Cottage unique
This property is a working farm on six forested acres. Though we are surrounded by fun activities and destinations, this is also a lovely place to do nothing but gaze at the stars and the fire.

Great retreat rental.
We were in Nevada City for our granddaughters graduation. This rental was spectacular! The hosts were always available, if needed. The house is beautiful and the area is quiet. It is quite the retreat. Will definitely go back.
Wonderful, Quiet Getaway!
We stayed for two nights and truly enjoyed it. Lovely cottage, simply and beautifully appointed. Comfortable, peaceful, and spotless. Minutes from downtown but a hidden away gem! Great! Will return if our travels bring us to Nevada City again!
Beautiful and quite. Great place to relax.
We really enjoyed our time their. It is a beautiful place to relax and enjoy some time off. The owners are friendly.
