We are partially retired and love the river and traveling. We live on 5 acres and have an organic garden and a 3 year old lab named Jack Straw. We look forward to meeting you and sharing adventures.
The photos do not do this place justice! Our stay was absolutely perfect. They owners' attention to detail is above and beyond and we are very much looking forward to coming back and spending more time here :) Another plus - Nevada City is such a fun and quaint place to visit nearby. Thank you!
Exactly what we hoped for in a weekend getaway!
Response from Jill And Jon:
Thanks for coming.
I highly recommend Jill and Jon's place in Nevada City! My husband and I stayed for a couple of nights and were thrilled at the spaciousness of the cabin. The property is about 15 minutes from town and the silence of the forest is thoroughly peaceful and healing. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen and bathroom clean, the decor/furnishings were beautiful, and the little electric stove in the living room was a delight... and it heats up the cabin fast! Bring your iPod for music as they have a dock there and/or your DVD's for movies on the flat screen. We will be back~
Jon and Jill (and their dog Jack) were wonderful hosts. Beyond the cottage being impeccably clean and lovely - great view, deck, bbq, light - we were treated to muffins and an amazingly relaxing time. I am a long-time frequenter of the Yuba, and I cannot recommend its proximity to the river more. I plan to return this summer if they will have me . . .
What a great little spot! Close to Nevada City and just a quick drive to the South Fork Yuba River. We enjoyed the beautiful cottage, beautiful view, friendly dog, and breakfast on the patio. Its a great winter getaway and we can't wait to come back in the spring! Thanks for the lovely hospitality.
We totally loved this cottage. It is cozy, comfortable and a lovely place to spend some time away. Jill was very welcoming and stopped in to say hi on our first morning to make sure everything was ok. Jack also came by for a game of fetch. He's adorable.
The view from the deck is just as gorgeous as it looks in the picture. And it's only a short drive up to hiking trails along the South Yuba River, which was awesome. The location was perfect: just enough out of town for it to be quiet, but close enough to get there in a few minutes.
The kitchen had what we needed, but was very basic: if you're a gourmet cook, you'll want to bring spices and maybe a supply of whatever oils you cook with.
We are bookmarking this as a place we'd like to stay again.
Moon Shadow Cottage is a lovely decorated cottage with beautiful views of the woods and gorgeous sunsets off the deck. We loved the festive Christmas tree and decorations and the yummy muffins and tangerines they left for (website hidden) was clean,warm,cozy and comfortable. We wished we could stay longer. Thank you Jill and Jon.
Jill and Jon's cottage could not have been more lovely. Visiting from SF, we had never been in the area before so we were happy to find a folder they provided with all the information we needed to know about the historic area in and around Nevada City. With a private deck, barbeque grill and a fully stocked kitchen to cook in, we had everything we needed. Gorgeous location and a wonderfully clean and comfortable cottage with very kind hosts. Highly recommended!
Wonderful cabin and location. Jon and Jill were super accommodating and really helpful. Cookies and muffins were left for us which was really nice. We loved the cabin and wish we could have stayed longer. Pictures don't do this place justice. It's gorgeous. Very sweet yellow lab comes by in the AM to say hi. Great place!
We loved staying in Moonshadow Cottage! Great (email hidden)t too far out of Nevada City, but totally removed from any hussle bussle. Jill and John were awesome hosts and their dog is a total sweetheart. We hope to return in the future!
