Whether you enjoy outdoor activities or just want to relax on our deck overlooking the river, you will love this place. Hike the trails nearby, swim, kayak, and picnic at one of many beautiful mountain lakes, gaze at the Sierra Buttes, fish and enjoy the local swimming holes on the Yuba River, or just relax with a view of the river and the Tahoe National Forest. Perfect for a family vacation or group of friends. Great for telecommuting with a view -- if your boss will let you! EV charging.

The space
During winter it's a great location to avoid the crowds of the Tahoe area and is great for cross country skiing, snow shoeing, snowmobiling, or sledding with the family. Or just relax by the cozy fire. Borrow our snowshoes and poles or our sleds and have some fun.

Enjoy time on the riverside deck, fish on the river below, and sleep to the relaxing sound of the river. Enjoy the restaurants in the picturesque mining town of Sierra City or Downieville or buy groceries at the local Country Store and cook or barbecue at the cabin. Ride your bikes around town, ride the single tracks on your mountain bike, or ride your road bike up Gold Lake Road along many gorgeous lakes.

New: Electric Vehicle charging available if arranged in advance.

Check out our low weekly pricing - may be better to spend a week - there is lots of see and do in the area. Telecommute from the cabin for a few days while the rest of your family enjoys a longer vacation.

There are two bedrooms and two full bathrooms. One king bed, one queen bed, and a queen size air mattress that can go in either room or the living room. One bathroom has a shower, the other one has a bathtub with a shower head. The second bedroom has a private entrance to the hall bathroom. Living space is about 1200 square feet.

The TV is an old 35 inch model but it is set up with a ROKU box and both Netflix and Amazon Prime Video subscriptions so you can enjoy great movies, TV shows, news, weather, and music. Although there is no cable TV, most broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, ESPN, etc.) have apps on the ROKU so you can watch those networks live if you have a cable subscription at home. You can plug your music player to the stereo system (bring adaptor if needed). VHS, CD, and Cassette players are also available.

You are welcome to use the gas barbecue on the back deck facing the river and the washer and dryer in the hall bath. Connect your phones and laptops to our WiFi network for fast internet connectivity.

The cabin is in a quiet, riverside neighborhood at the end of the paved road. The next door neighbors are rarely home as they don't live in town. There are no neighbors across the river (just the National Forest). Neighbors enjoy taking a walk to the to the campground a mile away, along the river. The picturesque mining town is only a mile away with places to eat or shop.

There is plenty of parking on our driveway. To get around, most people walk, drive, or ride their bikes. Kayaking is the favorite mode of transportation in the lakes : )

You may borrow our kayak to enjoy on the lakes nearby (not the river). Fits two adults and a child or dog. Please arrange for the kayak ahead of time if interested.

I grew up in Honduras and live in the San Francisco Bay Area where I went to college and where I lead the marketing team for a startup. I love the outdoors and frequently go sailing in the bay where I'm a volunteer instructor. I enjoy cycling especially up Mt. Diablo and Gold Lake Road. I like to travel and enjoy meeting interesting people as a guest and as a host.
