My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at the Shamballa cabin. We wanted a getaway that was quiet, immersed in the forest, comfortable and had access to wifi if we needed it. The Shamballa ticked all of those boxes.

There are three cabins total, but we felt secluded and private. There is a clean outhouse as well as access to a flushing toilet and a hot shower at the main house which we appreciated.

The property is very peaceful, we were able to fully relax and felt safe and comfortable. The cabin was very spacious and it stayed cool, which was wonderful in the middle of July. I imagine it being warm and cozy in the winter time. The bed was super comfortable which is a great bonus! The Shamballa is still under some construction, but that didn't have a negative effect on us at all, it will be even nicer and more spacious once completed.

We definitely plan on returning for a forest retreat again soon. Thank you Adam!

Thank you kindly Midhun for such a fire review. We have put our hearts and souls into creating a sanctuary and retreat center. To walk the land and enjoy the natural beauty is very healing and catching a glimpse of a wild fox, deer or bobcat is always inspiring. Do come again - we look forward to it. Adam

If you like to escape the hussle of a city life you but not leaving the comfort of your home this is the place . You are surrounded with prestine pine trees, cheerping birds when you wake in the morning,. The cabin is nice, equipped with everything you need from kitchen to a comfortable bed. The flushing toilet and shower is not far walked from your cabin you are provided with clean towels everyday. There are lots of interesting places to explore from mining to beautiful lakes and rivers and 40 minutes to Downieville a beautiful cute town well known for mountain biking, 30 minutes away from Nevada City old mining town. Mr. Dsam is a good host . All is a plus when you stay in this cabin. Mr.Adam is good host.
