Overview

Gold Country / High Sierra Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

**Note: 1 week stay minimum June 13- August 4th**

Enjoy a taste of the Islands in a cozy 'Ohana House located in Nevada City. The private studio apartment is situated in a separate building and beautifully appointed with island-style flair.

Conveniently located near town and walking trails the apartment features vaulted ceilings, a comfortable queen-sized bed, satellite TV, a DVD player, wi-fi, and selection of books and board games for your enjoyment. The 'Ohana House also has an outside seating area where you can enjoy a meal or a morning beverage and is an ideal spot for bird-watching.

From the front door you'll find a quiet country road, curving its way through a forest of pine and oak, with access to lovely walking trails and Hirschman's Pond nearby. Downtown Nevada City is just one mile away.

Nevada City and Grass Valley

These two historic gold mining towns situated just 4 miles apart offer a multitude of activities including shopping, art galleries, museums, great restaurants, world-class music and live theater. In winter take a one hour drive to Tahoe and enjoy a day of snow play with down-hill and cross-country skiing, snow boarding, snow shoeing, tubing, and sledding.

In summer, access to the stunning Yuba River is a 10 minute drive where you can hike well-maintained trails and find that perfect swimming hole or waterfall to spend the afternoon. If you are feeling adventurous, ask me about the 'secret' Yuba River spots!

Choose from a number of near-by lakes for a day of fishing, picnicking, swimming, kayaking or boating. Lake Tahoe is one hour by car – ask about the 'back road' drive for spectacular views and scenery. Or head west along scenic Highway 49 into the Sierra high country and discover a string of historic mining towns, each with their own charm.

I am here to make your stay a memorable one so let me know if you have any special requests. Need a recommendation for a great restaurant, the best fishing, biking or hiking spots, or the latest town news? Just ask!

Aloha!

About Amy

I've stayed at Vacation Rentals around the world, I always appreciate it when they feel like home, where I can completely settle in and relax - but I also love luxury hotel amenities and furnishings. Here at the 'Ohana studio in Nevada City, you have the best of both for a completely romantic vacation get-away topped off with a taste of the islands!

Happy Trails!

Amy purchased this studio in 2005

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for the use of this wonderful studio! So peaceful and light. The high quality of everything was really appreciated. Our friends gave out these macadamia bars from Hawai'i at their wedding - hope you enjoy them -

Woodsy and Quiet, good trails

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed the hills trees and most of all the peaceful atmosphere. I used my smart phone less, and slept hard at night.

Love 'Ohana House

  • 5 of 5

This is our favorite and only place to stay when visiting family in Nevada City. The unit is beautifully decorated, conveniently located, and has all of the amenities one could ask for. The owner is a lovely and very accommodating hostess. We'll be back!

25th Anniversary Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Visiting from our own popular tourist town in Sonoma County, it was fun being the tourists for a change; we met very warm and open locals--thank you, Nevada City! We very much enjoyed our 4 night stay. The house had everything we needed: a kitchen for breakfast and dinners; AC (which worked very well during a heat wave); and a nice quite location just outside of town (less than a 3 minute drive). Lastly, our hosts were very accomodating, and Amy's recommendations were spot on...thank you...we'll be back!

Wedding Weekenders

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for two nights because a friend was getting married nearby. This place was perfect for a weekend getaway. It was very clean and had everything we needed. It was pretty close to the Nevada City town center and we had a great time walking around the town and going out to dinner. The owner and people in this town are all very nice and welcoming. It's a place I would want to visit again.

The perfect place to stay in Nevada City

  • 5 of 5

Amy's studio provided the perfect place to relax and is so convenient to all the activities we enjoyed in the Nevada City/Grass Valley area. It is charming, comfortable, well-appointed and very private. It's upstairs location (over a garage used for storage) and with large windows gives the feeling of being in a spacious tree-house. Amy is a gracious and helpful hostess who directed us to some wonderful hikes - right out the door as well as nearby up the Yuba river. We highly recommend the 'Ohana House.
