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!
We loved our stay on Russ’s land. It had everything we needed for a wonderful and comfortable time. The area was super clean and well taken care of. Russ was also so nice and helpful and offered us perfect recommendations for what to do in the area (we followed all of them and they did not disappoint). We could not be happier with our overall experience and can’t wait to come back.
Such attention to detail !
Attention to every detail was what made this place so special. We felt so welcomed and at home during our weekend stay. And the solar shower was great!!! It was the best weekend away with our dog.
Camping with a big senior dog :)
I returned home and still kept thinking about the Russtic Roadside Retreat (R3). I love everything about it. The location is convenient, to historic downtown, to Railroad museum, and stores. The place is electrify and we had wifi. I love the feeling staying in remote, among redwood trees and convenient.
I appreciate Russ for thinking through about everything. I love there is a private flush clean toilet bathroom inside. We can take a hot shower (from solar) .. so convenient especially in the middle of the night . I love that there is a little mini kitchen with a sink and a pot to make a quick hot water. Russ even provided the BBQ stove, chais, plates, cups, utensils. We overpacked. And no bugs.
We went in Spring, in the middle of April. We were afraid we would be freezing cold. But actually it was comfortable. We brought plenty of blanket and did not put the tent up. There was a tarp that you can close it and keep the room warm. We rented the heater and that helped. Our dog sleep so well. He snored the whole time.
The 2nd night it was raining. I love the sound of the rain. It felt safe and comfy. Although Russ lived in the same proximity, we received privacy. It was not too close. If we need anything we can text Russ. He came to say hi at the beginning and left us alone. He texted to warn us about the weather (raining at night), and he came to say goodbye at the end.
My husband and I including our big labrador would definitely come back again. We love this place.
Russ had a great spot. I need a place close to town that has cell reception so I booked with him. It’s obvious that a lot of care and effort was put into the site. The use of space and clever design was awesome. It was also great chatting with him. Definitely recommend.
A perfect getaway
Russ has a lovely site on his property. It has privacy while simultaneously having a convenient, close-to-town location. The site itself is really remarkable as the photos show. We brought our tent, sleeping gear, and a Coleman stove and were all set for a lovely weekend of mountain biking and enjoying the quaint town of Nevada City. I highly recommend this place!
Easy and comfortable
Russ responded quickly to a last minute booking and was very helpful and kind without being intrusive. His property is beautiful and the camping space is very comfortable.
