Countrywood Cottage and Camping

Family-friendly vacation home in Nevada City
Cosy cottage in between Nevada City and the Yuba River. Peaceful wooded setting close to swimming, hiking, and biking trails. High ceilings, wood panels, and stained glass adorn the comfortable cottage, private bathroom and kitchenette. Outdoor patio under the tall trees. Cottage sleeps three, tent camping available for larger parties. Eight minutes to downtown Nevada City, five minutes to Edwards Crossing on the South Fork Yuba River, 45 minutes to Donner Summit and skiing.

The space
The Cottage is a cute, 250 sq foot studio complete with a double bed, propane fireplace, private bathroom, and kitchenette. Light and airy, guests will enjoy the artistic stained glass, custom windows and skylights, and natural wood throughout the cottage. Primary sleeping space is a double bed, also available to guests is a single cot with memory foam mattress, best suited for children, bu can accommodate an adult. Also available is Pack and Play for infants or toddlers. The cottage can comfortably accommodate 2-3 adults, however, tent campsites are available for larger parties. There are two available tent camping sites, for a maximum of 6-8 people with this option. Please note that all the facilities (bathroom, kitchen) are in the Cottage. If you would like to book this option please add the number of extra guests while booking. Children under ten do not count as extra guests for tent sites.

Guest access
Guests have private access to the entire Cottage as well as the property, 1.6 acres of peaceful woodland outside of Nevada City. Enjoy sitting outside and watching the birds and other wildlife. Recreational equipment available for guests to borrow include snowshoes and kayaks.

Other things to note
While Wifi is available at The Cottage, it is extremely slow and cannot be relied on for anything other then basic web browsing! Unfortunately it will not accommodate video streaming. Additionally, there is very limited or no cell service available. Because of this unique setup, The Cottage is especially wonderful for guests who are seeking a place free of EMF signals. If you would like us to completely turn off the Wifi for the duration of your stay we are more than happy to accommodate!

A note regarding power shutoffs: Countrywood Cottage has been frequently affected by the PG & E Public Safety Power Shutoffs. We are still open and available to book during power outages and have a backup battery system and generator available for guests, however, some amenities may still be unavailable or limited. If you think there may be a power shutoff in the area please call us after booking to ensure we know you are coming, as communications tend to be slower.

2/5 Poor

Darling Cottage but…
The cottage itself was really cute. It was clean however the flannel bedding and bathroom rugs were really sour smelling and the standard pillow cases were too small for the king pillows. It would have been nice to know there is no microwave (only a toaster oven) and no coffee maker (only an electric kettle and French press). Also, the grounds surrounding the cottage leave something to be desired. On the good side, it was reasonably priced, very private and near the areas we wanted to go to.

1/5 Terrible

Beware - storage shed surrounded by junk with tarp covers
The woods surrounding are beautiful. The cabin itself was in a less than desirable property. Garbage spread around outside, tarps covering things, junk strewn about. The air conditioner was a swamp cooler, humid warm air coming out of it. Worst of all the smell inside the cabin wet dog mixed with warm humid air. Ask for pictures of the area surrounding the cabin.

Peaceful place to be
We were very happy with our stay... chill, quiet, peaceful. Tea kettle, small fridge, beautiful shower and bathroom. Friendly hosts. Nature. Not too far out from Nevada City town. Loved it.

Nice little get away.
This cute little place is away from noisy highways. A little off the beaten path, and I very much enjoyed the quiet. Host was gracious enough to accommodate the parking of my boat. Went fishing at Bullards Bar Reservoir. Very nice stay!
