This spacious bungalow has the quiet air of a remote retreat while only a 5-minute drive to charming Nevada City. Situated on a one-acre park-like setting, it features a sleeping area with a comfy queen bed to one side and a sitting area with a sleeper sofa and 42" TV to the other side, all below a high ceiling with four skylights. Also featured are a refrigerator, microwave, toaster and coffeemaker. A great jumping off point to explore the Gold Country or just to cocoon in the Sierra foothills.

Other things to note
Cable TV on a 42" Samsung smart TV includes HBO and Showtime.

There is no stove/cooking.

A heavy curtain separates the toilet/shower area from the rest of the bungalow. The bathroom can't be seen into from the central part of the studio, and there is a ventilating fan in this room as well. There is no bathroom sink; the nearby kitchen sink doubles as a bathroom sink. A larger bathroom in the main house is available; it features a separate entrance just a few steps from the bungalow.

There are no steps to get into the bungalow; however, the unit itself is not completely level, as there is one step up into the bathroom.

There are many streets behind the property that are ideal for walks. The property has a secure back gate that provides easy access to those streets; a remote gate opener is available on request.

Note that house rules include the need for all self-check-in guests to view a short YouTube video in advance of arrival, as it features crucial tips for locating the difficult-to-find driveway. Because many GPS systems cannot locate the driveway, this video is an all-important tool for a stress-free check-in.

A powerful generator keeps electricity flowing seamlessly during outages.

Location

Nevada City, California, United States

The lower Banner Mountain neighborhood, also known as Banner Crest, is located on the border between Grass Valley and Nevada City; Banner Mountain features some of the most interesting and elegant homes in the area. Though it feels miles from civilization, this house in the hills is only one and a half miles from three major supermarkets and two miles from downtown Nevada City.

I'm a freelance public relations/marketing writer living in Northern California's beautiful Gold Country. A San Francisco native, I enjoy exploring and photographing other parts of the world in my spare time. My favorite recent destinations were a one-week people-to-people trip to Cuba and a two-week stay in Paris.
