vacation rental description

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.

traveler reviews for this nevada city house rental

Clean and comfy in a great location

Review submitted: June 18, 2014   Date of arrival: June 12, 2014

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

Review submitted: June 12, 2014   Date of arrival: June 5, 2014

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!

Perfect Vacation Rental

Review submitted: June 6, 2014   Date of arrival: May 30, 2014

We were a group of 6 - 3 adults and 3 children. This was the perfect vacation rental - spotlessly clean, very comfortable, amazing location. The house was supplied with everything you could possibly need - just like a home from home. Plenty of seating both inside and outside. We only wished we had been staying longer, we didn't want to leave. A vehicle is required to get provisions, so I was well advised by Beth to stock up beforehand and take basic foods with me. Beth was very easy to deal with and answered all my queries. We also took our dog, who loved the woods around the property. I would highly recommend this property and would love to go back in the future.
