The Space

Beautiful private master bedroom and bath in our home on five secluded acres with a lovely large pond and Mediterranean garden. Spacious, modern room with a very comfortable king size bed, bamboo floors and windows framing forest views. DVD and wireless internet. Sliding doors lead to a bright sun room where you can relax in the hammock. Directly off the sun room is a large deck. There is a fire pit where you can roast a hot dog or just enjoy an evening campfire. We serve a delicious home made breakfast to order every morning. Two miles from historic Nevada City, close to fantastic swimming holes on the beautiful Yuba river, hiking and biking trails, and the Sierra mountains.

Amenities include: homemade breakfast, wireless internet, sun room, large deck, private entrance from deck, large pond complete with paddle boat, and fire pit for campfires and hotdog roasts.

We have an outside cat with inside privileges. She is very shy and will stay away whenever we have guests. She never goes into the airbnb room.

No smoking, no pets please.

  • Our host made my husband and I feel so comfortable and welcomed. Our accommodations were more than what we anticipated! We had our own bedroom, bath, inside patio and outside patio. The private entrance was nice so we knew we would not disturb Mary when we would leave or return. Breakfast each morning was out of this world...everything homemade! The grounds were manicured nicely and wildlife was abundant! If anyone vacations in this part of California, staying at the Nevada City Retreat is a must!!

  • Mary and Milady were fabulous hosts--friendly, kind, flexible, a wealth of information, wonderful to get to know. Their home is a lovely oasis with every amenity, peaceful and beautifully decorated. We loved having the option to sleep under the stars on the deck . . . but couldn't resist the comfortable king sized bed in the spacious guest room. This is a terrific place to stay, and in the morning Mary makes the best omelet in the Sierras! Thank you for everything you two--we will definitely be back!

  • Great place to stay with great hosts! Room is big and private with a private bath and comfortable bed. Mary and Milady were wonderful—easy going, fun, and helpful. It was the perfect combination of our needs being well taken care of, and having the flexibility to come and go as we needed.

  • My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Mary Levy in Nevada City. The rooms were cozy and meticulously clean. Mary is an excellent cook, a stimulating conversationalist, a down to earth gal and a wonderful hostess. I feel as if I have found my 'home away from home' in Nevada City with Mary!

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Mary's incredibly solicitous and eager to please. The room is spacious, the bed comfortable and the bathroom is spotlessly clean. She made us delicious muffins for breakfast the first morning and omelets the second - and she let me watch the 49ers playoff game on her TV on our final morning there. We'd be happy to return if we get back to Nevada City.

  • Lovely room, lovely home, lovely host. A bit off the beaten path yet it is under a 5 minute drive to the charming downtown area of Nevada City or the College of Ayurveda where I was taking a workshop. Breakfast every morning was nutritious, tasty, and a vision for the eyes. Mary Levy is the best host as you can chat or retire to your bedroom suite. It was clean and well-appointed with lot's of hangers and drawers. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat.

  • We had a delightful time at the Nevada City Retreat. In a lovely setting, close to town, surrounded by tall pines and cedars, with deer frequenting the landscape. Private entrance. Immaculate, well-appointed room, with a very comfy bed. Wonderful home-cooked breakfasts. Our very friendly hostess took us on a tour of the property, which includes a large picturesque pond. Local motels were packed out for special events when we were there, and we think we had the best accommodations in town!

  • Mary and Mil were delightful hosts--fun to be with, kind, respectful, and generous. The room had a large and comfortable bed, was clean and well cared for, with lots of light and nice views. The property is well located near Nevada City iin a rural-residential setting. We had everything we needed and I would recommend staying with Mary and Mil without hesitation or qualification.

Hi, My name is Mary and I've lived in this area for 35 years. I'm retired , but worked as a botanist for the Tahoe National Forest and in the forestry industry. I share the house with my sister Miladie (she's on the left in the photo). Mil moved here from the swamps of southern Florida where she ran a photography gallery. We are fun, happy people who enjoy the natural world, new adventures, gardening, quilting, painting, laughing and fine dark chocolate. We like hosting and enjoy getting to know and catering to our wonderful guests.
