Our quaint home, "The Nook" (formally known as 'La Palta'), is an inviting and warm place for anyone. It is a private guesthouse that is perfect for active couples or friends who want lots of space to play, wine and/or dine. You would enjoy the private side yard arbor and the quick walk to downtown or the Sierra Nevada Brewery. We are always working hard to improve our beloved Nook and are regularly adding fun new features.

Nice private, relaxing place to stay for myself, my husband and two pups. The great coffee was an added bonus! We also loved the large living room/kitchen area. The bed was comfortable, and the A/C kept the place cool during our stay. We would recommend to our friends!
