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.

We had a wonderful and comfortable stay in this lovely roomy cabin. Perfect location in the foothills for a family reunion and house hunting in Nevada City area. The large kitchen was very well equipped for a household that enjoys cooking together. Great for biking and hiking in the area. Also, the park down the road was a welcome surprise. This cabin is a very peaceful and relaxing setting. Thanks to the owners for sharing this lovely cabin.

The Lost Mine Retreat was perfect. It was exactly as stated, it was nice, everything worked and very easy to get in and out of.
I would recommend this to anybody I know going up to the Nevada City Area looking for a place to stay.
The owners were great and easy to work with. They respond extremely quick to any questions or concerns as well.

Thanks
Giancarlo
