Studio apartment, interior above the main floor. Hot tub available.
Queen bed w/sitting area, kitchen with 2 burner hot plate, microwave, fridge. Fully furnished for weekend or extended stay. Wifi. No pets. 1 blk to town. $9/nt tax included in price .

The space

Setting and location are a plus here. We are within walking distance to down town. The setting is very private. The studio is on the second floor of a remodeled 1950's bungalow with some artistic charm. Rene's clay studio is right next door. We are congenial hosts, happy to answer questions about the area, and respectful of your privacy. This space is perfect for one or two adults. A perfect home away from home for exploring all the outdoor activities and festivals this area has to offer. Nevada City has just approved Airbnb rentals,
and as such, will now require a 10% bed tax. Airbnb has no way to show this cost, so guests will be responsible for paying the tax upon their arrival. This is seperate from the airbnb charge.

Guest access

Private stairway leading to private studio. Hot tub outdoors in the yard. Parking.

Interaction with guests

You have your own private space, so you may only see us as you are entering or leaving. We are happy to answer questions and give suggestions for an interesting stay, but we also respect your privacy, and you are free to come and go. Property use is for paying guests only. (Sorry, no pets or smoking).

Drue and René were wonderful hosts! Their rental is in the perfect location, super close to downtown Nevada City yet still quiet and private. The bed was comfy. Having melon and yogurt prepared in the morning was an extremely thoughtful touch. Will definitely stay again the next time I'm in town.

Cute little place to stay. Much better than any hotel. Bed was super comfy. Very close to town so you can walk everywhere. We enjoyed our stay very much and would stay again!

Drue and Rene accepted a last minute request for a booking and they were extremely nice and polite in all correspondence. They let me store my bags a few extra hours since check out is usually at 11. The studio has a separate entrance and is charming and private. I didn't meet Rene but Drue helped with my bags and was efficient in meeting me to let me in. The studio has a kitchenette and it's like it's own apartment. Very well-equipped! I recommend this place!

Drue and Rene's place is a true hide-away. My husband and I deeded respite from the city, to swim in the Yuba, and to rest well and easy. Rene and Drue were lovely welcomers, comfortable, helped us get oriented to the space and then we were on our own. We slept like we were on vacation, and loved how the place was both quiet for us, but then close to town so we enjoyed a romantic dinner and caught a coffee in the morning with ease. Would love to come back!

Drue And René User Profile

Rene and I have been hosting guests at our Mama, Baby, and Papa Bear Cabins for nearly a decade and have met some of the nicest folks along the way. We now rent out our upstairs studio apartment in town. We love this town and the surrounding, area and are happy to share information with our guests about the best live theater, musical events, great restaurants, and historical outings, as well as the awesome trails. We are both runners and happy to share information on where to go for a great run or hike. Rene is a potter and has some of her work displayed or for use in our rentals. You may catch us in a play from time to time. We love to dine out, and Nevada City has some great restaurants.

We live just a short distance from the cabins, and are accessable by phone most of the time, should you have any needs during your stay. You may not see us, unless you are staying with us in town, but rest assured we are thinking of you. Your privacy and comfort are important to us, and we look forward to the opportunity to host you!
