Surrounded by trees it's easy to feel like you're in a woodsy oasis. The cabin is a cozy two-story with 4br and 2 ba, the kitchen is small but works out great for 2 friendly cooks. The cabin came stocked with firewood, a good thing since the wood burning stove was the main source of heat (there were a few space heaters set throughout the house too). There was one issue with the plumbing and the handyman offered to come fix it during dinner time. We had some handy family members and fixed the issue ourselves. I thought it would have been nice to offer us some credit on a future stay for the trouble but no luck. Overall I would recommend the cabin. It's pretty good for the price and I think my plumbing issue was a rareity. Issues can arise with any house and I appreciated their offer to come help.
The house was very comfortable. The area is beautiful. We were in the area for my daughter's wedding and it was nice to have a comfortable place to relax
Great place for relaxing and enjoying nature. Would do it again.
This was a fantastic vacation home if you are looking to get out of the city, away from light and sound pollution and become one with nature! We were able to take a short drive down the Scotts Flat Dam road to a resoviour where we hike up to the Dam. When we got home we through some logs on to the wood stove and bbq'd some delicious food. It was 6 of us but if could have comfortably fit 8 to even 10 depending on the sleeping arrangements. House was cute, a little dated but very VERY cozy! Kitchen had more than I expected with pots, pans, seasonings, utensils, etc. The beds were SO comfortable that all of us in the house found it difficult to get out of them. They had heating blankets on every bed and space heaters throughout the house, since there was no central H&A. Favorite part of the cabin was how cozy and remote the home was even though it was only a 10 minute drive from Nevada City. The only complaint I have was that when we got there and turned on the lights and heaters the breaker cut and we had to go out in the rain to fix it. Positive end of that though, was I immediately texted the host and she got back to me saying that the only reason she thought that might have happened was due to a new space heater that took too much power. All we had to do was not use one space heater and everything was fine! The host was so helpful and texted back within minutes of me texting her. She was very friendly and easy to work with. All of us are in our mid twenties and found that this was a great little cabin for us to all share and find entertainment in. We plan to come back here during the summer and enjoy the cabin in the warm weather! Highly recommend this place!
