This is an awesome cottage in the middle of the forest in beautiful Nevada city that was a great getaway for me, my wife and our 4 year old. It is about 5 miles from downtown Nevada City and very easy to get to. The cottage is very comfortable and deck looks more beautiful than the pictures, and the sunrise and sunset times are magical. We had deer (and friendly dog Jack) visit us often.
The fresh flowers that the host/hostess had arranged and the wonderful muffins made us feel very much at home. I would definitely revisit Moonshadow Cottage again.
Just perfect...great view, great location, very very good location for swimming in the Yuba River, great hosts. Truly beautiful accomadations. As airbnb hosts ourselves we give the cottage our highest rating!
Lovely cottage, beautiful deck and great view. It was terribly hot while we were there, which made us wish there were a pool available for cottage guests, but at least there was air conditioning. Our dog was very happy there, in this very rural area. Great birds to see, and loved how close to the river it is.
Lovely cottage in a tranquil setting. Hosts Jill and Jon are gracious and affable... and avid concert goers.
Although it was a brief stay was very wonderful. I enjoyed my time very much. They are wonderful hosts and I stay there again. I would recommend this is any friends.
Beautiful setting in the forest and a very cute cottage. Was also well child-proofed - our 2.5 year old daughter could run around the patio on her own, which was very nice.
We also enjoyed playing with the friendly and smart dog Jack!
The host Jonnie was unintrusive but friendly and helpful.
We loved Moonstone Cottage and cannot wait to return! It had everything we needed and it was nicely decorated. The views and the deck are incredible. Thank you Jill and Jon for making us feel so welcome and comfortable.
