This is a rural neighborhood surrounded by meadows and forest. There’s a family of great horned owls in the pines, bluebirds in the meadow, and many other species such as jays, woodpeckers and hummingbirds. You may even hear coyotes at night. And though you could happily spend your stay lounging on the decks, good food and great art are just a five minute drive or a 30 minute walk away in historic Nevada City.
