What a fantastic host Russ is! His darling little house he made out of pallets is solid and wonderful and magical! I was expecting to set up my tent it I didn’t need to. I could roll out my sleeping mattress and sleeping bag on the floor and was bug free and cozy! The attention to detail was incredible! Cut flowers on the table, flush toilet, solar shower, kettle for hot water and picnic table and hammock outside. And right in darling Nevada city!
I love the way Russ greets us when we visit. A genuine welcome both times we’ve stayed. When we were packing up he asked how it was and wished us safe travels. The glass addition makes for an even more comfortable stay without mosquitos. His garden is bright with sweet peas and snapdragons. There was a sweet list inside for us on the table. Nice touch.💐
A perfect little getaway spot! Russ is kind and helpful and Ellie (the cat) is the star of the show. Had everything we needed to enjoy and relax. The cute enclosure, heater, and new glass windows kept us cozy and comfortable as heck. LOVED IT ❤️
Great nevada city gem!!
We had a really wonderful time staying at R3! The glass front really makes it the perfect glamping experience, no rent required. Russ is a fabulous and friendly host, kind and welcoming to humans and pups alike. And the location can’t be beat for adventures in Nevada City and the Yuba River!
Such a nice escape with glamping amenities. An easy drive from Sacramento, Russ greeted us as we pulled in and was easy to find. His glamping structure was a nice feature that had a great spot to roll out sleeping bags, be away from the mosquitos, have running water and a flushing toilet. We wished we stayed longer to enjoy the nice spot and solitude. We will be back.
Great place to spend time in nc!!
The place was amazing. Great location for biking in Nevada City. Russ greeted us and showed us around. The webber BBQ was a nice touch. We just brought an air mattress and sleeping bags, super easy. Will stay there again for sure!
