Property Details

Updated: Jan 24, 2015
House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, 10 Sleeps

Lost Mine Retreat, a custom log home. Easy access to Scotts Flat Lake. Visit us on Facebook for a virtual tour!

Nestled just inside the Tahoe National Forest, this beautiful log home sits high atop the remnants of an old hydraulic gold mine with panoramic views of Banner Mountain and the woods. This unique home gives one the experience of being peacefully secluded, yet is a short seven mile drive to downtown Nevada City, offering fine dining, entertainment, museums and shopping. The Retreat is ideal for family reunions, workshops and vacations for relaxing and recreation.

A stone's throw from the Retreat lies a charming community park with a swimming pond, walking trail, horseshoe pit, BBQ area, playground and sand volleyball court. The park is for rent and makes a great venue for a casual, affordable wedding. Just over a mile to Scotts Flat Lake the south side boat ramp provides access for swimming, boating, water skiing, sailing, fishing and kayaking on this pristine body of water.

Everyone, including the kids, relaxed right into this cozy log house.

  • 5 of 5
I don't want to call it a cabin because it's more spacious than most houses. With that said, it has all the coziness of a log cabin tucked away in the woods. The high cathedral ceiling in the living room allows you to breathe in the fresh air and take in the pine tree views with stunning sunrises and sunsets. The gas fireplace not only looks like a real wood stove, but it puts out great heat on those freezing nights. The central heater works great, the kitchen is stocked as if you lived there, and the loft is a great place for the kids to watch their favorite shows on Netflix, Hulu, Pandora or Blue-ray DVD player while the adults can relax downstairs and unwind. I do recommend this home for young children, but I would bring a portable baby gate for the stairs.

It's clear that the owners put a lot of love and sweat into making this the perfect getaway house. The furniture, decor, and overall layout of the home is perfectly in tune with its forest setting. But the park right below the house was an absolute gem! With it's playground, lake with a tiny island in the middle, path all the way around, volleyball court, Texas size BBQ grill, and picnic benches was just the best surprise! Plus the lake froze over, so the kids had a ball throwing rocks onto the ice and watching it slide or break through the ice. I wish we could have stayed longer and I'm already daydreaming of returning asap. Thank you Beth for sharing your beautiful home with us!!!

Beautiful cabin and location to stay!

  • 5 of 5
This beautiful cabin was incredible. It has all your amenities needed for your stay. The scenery surrounding the cabin was gorgeous and peaceful and relaxing setting. So close to downtown Nevada City for shopping and eating out. Beth was such a wonderful person who responds to your questions and needs. Our family can't wait to stay again in warmer weather to enjoy the lake.

Clean and comfy in a great location

  • 5 of 5
I stayed in the house for 3 nights with friends and we had a great time. The house is clean, well-stocked, lovely to look at and out from. It is in a perfect location with easy access to Scotts Flat Lake and the Yuba River -- which is something quite special. The area is so quiet and the setting country-like. Although there are neighbors close by, we could not see or hear them from the house. I would not hesitate to return again and again.

Woodsy retreat for family and friends

  • 5 of 5
Just spent a fabulous long weekend with friends and family at the LMR. The house is beautiful, comfortable, and well-equipped. Easy access to Nevada City, Grass Valley, Yuba River, etc. Just as comfy for a multi-generational family as for a group of old friends. First floor master suite is nice for parents of crying babies or older folks who don't do so well with stairs. Highly recommended!
