About Debbie

This is where we grew up. We have been here since 1971. My husband and I went to Downieville School. Our senior class size was 8. My husband and I were married in Downieville. This is a special place for us.

Debbie purchased this cabin in 1971

Why Debbie chose Gold Country / High Sierra

We enjoy Downieville for many of the same reasons you do, and by offering our home as a vacation rental we are able to share it with you.

What makes this cabin unique

This cabin overlooks town and the quant village views, but its just a minute walk from the river, grocery store, restaurants and bars. It is in the middle of the action and yet has all the privacy you could want.

We were in Downieville for our daughter's wedding. She & her now-husband are hiking the entire 2650 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail and stopped in Sierra City for a full-on wedding with 110 guests! What a beautiful area! Downieville is an adorable town -- it did not disappoint. And the Bear Run Cabin provided the perfect lodging for our family. It was indeed close to everything. Very convenient, very clean, very comfortable bedding, very lovely views -- perfect for our needs! We would most certainly recommend this house to others.
