Overview

Gold Country / High Sierra House Rental Photos and Description

private natural beauty for up to 18 guests

Our spacious, 7-bedroom forest homestead (plus two convertible queen beds) is 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 follows 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.

The Game Room off the kitchen is set-up with a pool table and dart board. Board games are in the living room. Outdoor on-site activities include hiking, volleyball, picnics and Frisbee golf.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Yuba River Retreat is incredible! My cousins and I enjoyed a reunion weekend with children of all ages. About 20 people in all and we were completely comfortable. There was not a thing that we had wished was supplied that was not there for us. Beautiful landscaping, easy hike to the river and waterfall, a giant deck overlooking the most beautiful canyon, an area for a safe fire for an evening of building smores and singing camp fire songs, and plenty of space in the home. We did not feel crowded at all. We created wonderful memories at the Yuba River Retreat and look forward to another visit.

Secluded and resourceful vacation house

  • 5 of 5

It is well suited in the site of beautiful mountain. The house is also tastefully decorated and clean. The well maintained private trails, the water fall, Yuba River and Scotts Flake Lake are our favorite site for outdoor activities.The children also enjoy plenty of games and entertainments in & around the house. We enjoyed our stay very much and would recommend our friends about the place.

A Perfect Girls Retreat Weekend

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect getaway for my bachelorette weekend! The property was so secluded yet close enough to town for us to enjoy the great downtown that Nevada City has to offer. The house had everything we needed and we enjoyed taking the time to explore the beautiful property. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Beautiful setting and nice big house.

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 7 women each had our own bedroom and we cooked our meals in the big kitchen, enjoying them around the table for 8. We had cocktails and appetizers on the deck overlooking the valley, watching dear and listening to the birds. It was a perfect place for us to catch up with each other and enjoy a trip into town for a nice lunch and some shopping.

Revival in the forest

  • 5 of 5

This property is ideal for a large family or church retreat. Bedrooms are good sized, there are plenty of bathrooms and the kitchen is well stocked and easy to cook in. The game room/garage has a pool table and dart board which is fun for adults and kids. There is a downstairs for privacy in two of the bedrooms and this area has it's own kitchen. The biggest plus of this rental is the trails and forest leading down to the river. Great hiking, beautiful river and inspiring trails.
