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 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.

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.
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.

Thank you for sharing your so beautiful home with us. Our stay at the Yuba
River retreat was absolutely the BEST we could have hoped for !!! Your
property is a delight to stay in with an exceptional location. There were
no surprises nor difficulties. The home is very well furnished and has
everything we would need for a great trip.
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!
Having living rooms/kitchens available both upstairs and downstairs was very convenient for us.
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.
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.
We are a 5-minute drive from the Yuba River which offers visitors additional hiking trails, mountain biking trails, and refreshing river swimming. We are a 10-minute drive from Nevada City. We are pet-friendly, with a fenced yard under the oak trees.
