About Kathy Dotson

Kathy moved to Nevada City in 1994 after graduating from UCSB and growing up in Southern California. While working at a summer camp, she met the Southern man of her dreams, Brett (from Southwestern Virginia) and they married in 2002. They have two young girls, Roxy and Scarlet.

Kathy worked for the South Yuba River Citizens League for 10 years, and while there founded the Wild & Scenic Film Festival. She was the Festival Director for the first 8 years. Currently she is a graphic designer, working for a large variety of local businesses and non profits. She also teaches spinning at the South Yuba Club (one of the best and most intense spin classes around!) Brett has been in solar sales for over 10 years, working for SMA America.

The family loves adventuring in the Sierra, seeing live music and enjoying their incredible and magical community of Nevada City.

Kathy Dotson purchased this bungalow in 2007

Charming Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

If you are planning a trip to the California Gold Country Nevada City is a perfect place to explore this beautiful area. The bungalow has everything you need for an enjoyable stay, from the outdoor patio area/BBQ, walking distance to town and thoughtfulness of Kathy.

We found the bungalow to be well equipped, very clean and well stocked. We were so comfortable and appreciative of every

detail that was provided for our stay. Kathy gave us tips for hikes, places to river raft and we enjoyed it all.

Thanks for a memorable stay!!

Awesome and cozy bungalow, great hosts, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

The bungalow was just the place for a relaxing and fun birthday weekend. Just as described, the place is is very clean, well-appointed and super comfy, just the right size, with everything you need to have a great time. The hosts are terrific and do everything to make your stay a happy one. The neighborhood is beautiful, quiet and close to downtown restaurants and shopping. We especially loved Ike's Quarter Cafe for breakfast and lunch, just a short walk from the bungalow. The hosts have info on all kinds of activities and we enjoyed some great hikes. We had a wonderful time and would be super happy to return. Thanks for a great getaway!

Perfect cottage nestled in the woods, two minutes' walk from center of town.

  • 5 of 5

This cozy place is perfection. Stocked with beverages, citrous-smelling natural soaps and lotion, crafty decorations and handy nooks, it may tempt you to quit the world and figure out how to live the life of a spoiled and good-smelling hermit. If you are a fan of babbling brooks, frogs serenading you at night, and birds singing to you from willow trees, stay here.

Very hospitable

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and it was close to downtown, had a functional kitchen and breakfast nook, etc as described. Kathy was genuinely hospitable and great with everything, a pleasure to meet and interact with. The goodies were yummy and a nice welcoming touch. We enjoyed walking the nearby trails that Brett told us about.

A Fantastic stay at this Nevada City Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our visit to Nevada City. The bungalow was clean, in excellent condition, and exactly as described. Kathy was an excellent communicator, and made sure our expectations were exceeded. The little extras she provided were a very nice touch. I would definitely book this vacation rental again, and would recommend to friends without hesitation.
