Bird's Nest Yurt is newly remodeled and furnished for two to 4 people. (People of all backgrounds are welcome) It is a 30' Pacific yurt with one air conditioned enclosed room. Atop that is a sleeping loft . The open area has a full kitchen, dining and living areas. A small area is designed for TV viewing or game room. The bathroom (no tub) is at the end of an attached breezeway. The yurt sits on 5 private acres, sharing space with an occupied family home and small studio.

The space
The yurt has been on the property for over 10 years. It has provided long term housing for family and tenants, and studio space for local artists. Now I am excited to have the opportunity to offer this lovely space on Airbnb. My son lives on an island in Panama with his wife. They have rental spaces there (offered through Airbnb) and have encouraged this opportunity for me.
It's a unique and inspiring place to spend time throughout the year (The rain on the roof is amazing in the winter). The big wood stove is good for a warm and quiet winter day. Jump in the South Yuba or Middle Yuba in just a few minutes during our hot summers. Spring is warm /cold, green and full of new growth. My favorites during those days are the dogwoods, and redbuds. We are always hopeful for the precious rain to continue into May and June The fall colors are enchanting. The property is forested by pines, cedars, oaks and wild animals. We are on the flyway for both south and north migrations of sand hill cranes. Spotting them high over the trees circling,moving and calling to each other is always a thrill. The seasonal changes offer different skies, colors, flora and fauna. We are only 65 miles from Sugar Bowl..

Other things to note
It's rural here. Bring bug stuff, and sun block for summer. I have extra water and a holding tank for water in case the electricity goes off Bring a head lamp for yourself and there will be battery lanterns for your use as needed.

North San Juan, California, United States

The area has much to offer to visitors and as a resident of the Ridge I can say the local community is diverse and full of wonderful characters. We are 7 minutes from Ananda Village, 5 minutes to the Middle Yuba and 10 minutes to the South Yuba For active people there are trails for biking and hiking. The Yuba River is a beautiful wild and scenic treasure. Swimming fishing and rafting opportunities abound.
Downieville and the Sierra Buttes are 35 and 50 minutes away respectively The Buttes offer opportunities for high country camping , wilderness and beautiful trails for hiking and biking. There is a rich history here of both indigenous people and more recent inhabitants (gold mining, back to the land movement, family ranches, organic farms, artists, musicians.) The North Columbia Schoolhouse Cultural Center provides local entertainment (it houses an annual Story Telling Festival weekend) and now another entertainment venue has opened in nearby Camptonville. Nevada City and Grass Valley are within a 20 minute drive through the river canyon. There you will find art galleries, restaurants, book stores and entertainment venues . It’s a place where people love to live and a place to visit and enjoy as well

19 years ago, on a "just looking " trip in Nevada County, one of my adult sons and I drove down this driveway and made a rash decision to buy the home and acreage. My grown sons and I all consider it home, even though I am the only one living here. We have built a huge garden, a small barn, made the garage a studio and now have decided to rent the yurt through Airbnb. I worked for the first 14 years--first in a small independent bookstore, then I returned to nursing. Now I am enjoying the busy life of a retired person. The little community here on the Ridge and the larger ones of Nevada City and Grass Valley are full of people, ideas, music, poetry and natural beauty. I enjoy hosting people in the yurt. Their enjoyment, of the yurt, the property and the larger area of this foothill community makes hosting a pleasure.

During your stay
I am a retired nurse with a busy but quiet life. I have family and friends who visit and many activities that take me away from home too. The yurt and my home are close but privacy for you and for myself is important to me. I will try to be here to greet you on arrival, and will be available to you as needed.
