About Casi Kneebone
I grew up in Nevada City and my parents and many friends still live there. Now that we have two small kids, my husband and I wanted a place where we could come spend time in the woods and the kids could get dirty and play with Grandma and Grandpa. When we travel we typically stay in vacation rentals and wanted to pay it forward by opening our home to other families and groups that could also fall in love with our mountain retreat.
Casi Kneebone purchased this Cabin in 2016
What makes this Cabin unique
The true log cabin is the epitome of cozy, but with all the modern amenities you could want. The house's location directly on the Cascade Canal NID trail offers miles of flat walking through the forrest right outside the back door, yet the home is only a 5 minute drive to downtown Nevada City.

Perfect regardless of weather
My daughter lives in Nevada City and planned her wedding there. I wanted to be close to her, downtown and the wedding venue and this house was ideal.
My one question was answered promptly, otherwise all details were apparent (it helps to look at the book!).
We didn’t cook much due to the excellence of local restaurants—South Pine always for breakfast, New Moon and Lefty’s for dinner, but in normal circumstances the kitchen would have been a delight for family meals.
Consider this our family destination when we visit the newlyweds!
Great Get Away Destination!
Had a fantastic time at this house for our girlfriends get away for a few days. House is updated, very clean and cozy. All of us had a wonderful time. Thank you so very much.
The home was warm, spotless (and I mean not a speck of dust), beds and linens were very comfortable, great set up for a family, and the location was terrific, especially the hiking trail. Dog friend loved it too. Highly recommended.
Wonderful Property in Nevada City
Clean and comfy get away, great kitchen and living room, well kept and comfortable, wish we had more time to enjoy.
Perfect Family Getaway!
This home was one of the best HomeAway rentals we have ever stayed in. It was clean, well stocked and perfectly decorated. Will defiantly be staying here again.
Great home for base camp to explore the surrounding sites
This was our home base for 7 days a mixture of family wedding events and also vacation river time. The home is off the beaten path and secluded where you can enjoy peaceful mornings and beautiful star gazing in the evening. It was a perfect retreat to start and end our day. The accomodations are modern and very clean/ new. It's a great home to stay and prepare meals in and just relax -we often found ourselves enjoying floor to ceiling window views. The air worked perfectly and we were not hot and all the amenities listed worked and we used them (sonos, air, garage, river towels, kitchen/appliances, washer / dryer.) The guest guide was helpful and if you haven't been both Nevada City and Grass Valley have great historic tours, shopping, and also local crafts and eats. We hit in the time of the year where there street fair during the week and a farmers market on the weekend. Grocery store in town is fantastic and really has excellent options. By far our favorite were the daily river jaunts/hikes / waterfalls truly an impressive feature, and the suspension bridge. We look forward to returning in winter climate to enjoy the season/beauty that offers. For consideration in staying on this property it is a little far from town so if you are not familiar and plan to have activities in town you may want to stay in town - as ubers/public transportation are not readily available - we had late wedding activities that being closer to town may have been easier as parking in town is difficult when crowded. However, if you don't need to be in town late evenings this is the place to stay - it's not really walkable to town - windy roads with blind turns and we didn't see anyone making the walking trek. If you have guests coming with you that have difficulty climbing stairs this property is three levels and keep that in mind when older guests or little ones traveling. We managed fine and the downstairs guest quarters/ play room were perfect for our 7 year old - she played and played in the teepee. One feature not to forget is there are hooks everywhere in the house where you can hang your gear and belongs. Movie and book selection is extension. The kitchen supply of amenities, (# of cups/ plates etc) welcomed large families plenty to use for a full day of meals. If you are looking to just show up and be welcomed by all amenities and clean/modern living - this is it.
