Our spacious, 7-bedroom forest homestead (plus two convertible queen beds) is privately located on 100 wooded acres, with a sunny deck overlooking a forest of pines and oaks. Just a few steps from the front door, guests can enjoy a 5-mile network of beautiful, private hiking & mountain biking trails that follow the creek to a sandy beach & picnic area, with waterfalls and shallow pools to enjoy on a hot summer day.
The 3,500 sf yuba river retreat – offers privacy and outdoor beauty for guests seeking time in nature, while just 10 minutes from historic Nevada City’s theater, local shops, and gourmet restaurants.
Access to the Yuba River at the South Yuba River state park at Purdon Crossing is only a 10-minute drive by car from the retreat. With 650 acres of sought-after state park hiking trails, mountain biking, kayaking and refreshing river swimming in summer, it is the perfect place to relax in the outdoors.
The Yuba River Retreat is the ideal get-away for groups of outdoor enthusiasts, healing retreats, and families.
Look out at the forest from each of the 7 bedrooms and each of the 4 bathrooms feature organic towels and natural products.
The master bedroom is comfortably decorated with rustic, handmade furnishing, Navajo rug, king mattress with organic sheets and private bathroom. The four other bedrooms on the main floor feature queen-sized beds, designer comforters, original artwork and unique vintage furnishings.
The downstairs, accessible through the kitchen and also by driving directly to the back entry, includes two sunny bedrooms with queen beds, a bathroom with a claw foot tub, and an additional kitchen, with another spacious living room and wood stove.
Relax in the front or back living room, both adjacent to the kitchen and dining area and fully furnished for evenings of reading, board games, cards and complimentary netflix movies, warmed by the wood stove in winter or cooled with fresh mountain air from the large windows, all house fan and ceiling fan in the summer; plus a new air conditioning system for hot summer afternoons (though the best cure for the heat is a jump into the Yuba river).
The kitchen is fully equipped with everything a chef might need, including a double oven, microwave, toaster oven, blender, coffee grinder, knife set, and pots/pans.

This place is an absolute gem. Wonderful house, very well maintained trail system.
We had such a great time here. The house is very spacious and has great flow; we had 15 people and everyone was super comfortable. Grounds are stunning and such a perfect place to unwind and embrace tranquility. Thank you Alicia for hosting such a fantastic property!
Spacious, well equipped, and beautiful. Great for large groups. This was our second time at the retreat, and we plan to go back!
We held our small wedding ceremony and dinner here. The house comfortably accommodated all of our guests (there were twelve of us total) and the property was stunning! The morning of our wedding we went hiking, which was an amazing experience. My husband and I had a wonderful time with our family, I can't imagine a more perfect weekend. Thank you Yuba River Retreat!
