Amazing ambiance! This charming house is just a couple blocks from downtown in the small Gold Rush village of Sierra City. The house is cozy and private. But its greatest attraction is the peaceful sound of a brook flowing past the deck.

Interaction with Guests
If I am able to, I greet the guests or send a housekeeper. Otherwise, I will provide access to a key.
This is a charming small town atmosphere, with stunning mountain vistas, great hiking to the river or Sierra Buttes mountain, amazing mountain biking or road riding, summertime fishing, cross-country skiing, swimming in mostly chilly waters, visiting the great but limited number of town establishments. There are two bars in town, a small grocery store run by great people, a couple restaurants when they are open and a couple other places like mining shop and art gallery.
No public transit.

Directions from San Francisco Bay Area:
(Takes about four hours from San Francisco to Sierra City)
Take Interstate 80 east (through Davis, Sacramento,
Roseville) to Auburn.
Take Highway 49 towards Grass Valley/Nevada City
(turns into Highways 49/20 at Grass Valley. Continue on
through Nevada City.)
Take Highway 49 exit when it splits from Highway 20 after
downtown Nevada City exit.
Take Highway 49 through Downieville to Sierra City.
In Sierra City after grocery store, take a left up the
hill on Butte Street. Go about three blocks. Look for white
house with creek running below the deck on the left. The
long driveway is on the left.
There are other ways you can go to Sierra City.
For example, you can drive to Truckee and then take Highway 89 north to Highway 49. That may take about 30 minutes longer.
The fastest route might be this one:
Take Highway 80 to Sacramento. Two miles past IKEA take the exit towards Marysville. Take Highway 99/70 to Marysville and then Highway 20 towards Nevada City. Instead of driving all the way to Nevada City, take a left on Marysville Road about 5 minutes outside of Marysville. You will need a map for this drive, which has a few turns and takes you past Bullards Bar Reservoir on the way to Highway 49. This avoids a few more miles of curvy roads and seems to be the fastest route.
This is not a party house rental, but it is a great place to appreciate!
We expect you to enjoy yourself and have a wonderful experience, and we expect the house to be treated with care and respect. This is small town and part of the charm is knowing and getting along with your neighbors.
