Our simple, wood-heated cabins are on the edge of central campus, footsteps away from trails that snake through our 236 acres of woods and meadows. Similar to cabins you might find in Yosemite or California State Parks, our cabins are rustic and cozy.
These cabins can accommodate up to 6 people in single beds. Towel and Bedding rentals are available for an addition fee. Please inquire.
We operate a variety of educational programs here at Woolman as well as hosting retreats, groups, families, and solo sojourners. We are located on 236 acres of beautiful wooded trails, meadows, pastures, gardens, ponds and streams. We have a large field with playground equipment, a rope swing, volleyball net, and soccer field. We are a 15 minute drive in either direction from the historically preserved and culturally rich towns of Grass Valley and Nevada City. We are located an hour from Sacramento and an hour and a half from Tahoe. Our site is within hiking distance to the South Yuba River.
Woolman is a 501 © 3 non-profit with a mission to steward diverse learning communities and educational programs that weave together spirituality, peace, sustainability and social action.

The vibe at Rustic Cabins in the Woods
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
We just stayed here for a night on a weekend trip to hang out at the Yuba River, and this cabin worked great for us as a “crash pad”.
A note for folks used to the “comforts of home” in a cabin situation: this might not be the place for you. Our cabin was clean, but definitely rustic. It’s just a set of bunks and a wood stove. There isn’t really any “living space”, and no running water in cabin, but shared shower and toilet facilities are steps away. Think 70s summer camp bunkhouse.
All the cabins are close to each other, so you’ll be saying hi to neighbors. This seems like a great place for a big group to get a few cabins for a weekend camp out. The land is a nice mix of wooded and open spaces with a collection of trails to explore the area.
Our hosts were incredibly warm and welcoming and gave us great tips about things to see in the area.
If you’re looking for an affordable way to explore Grass Valley, Nevada City and the amazing Yuba River — and enjoy “roughing it” a bit — this place fits the bill.
