Nestled on 27 pristine acres of sacred land in the foothills of the beautiful Sierra Nevada mountains in Nevada County, California, HeartSpace Ranch is an idyllic, peaceful place to escape, connect with nature, play, and recharge.
HeartSpace Ranch is a beautiful and truly sacred piece of land nestled in the foothills of the beautiful Sierra Nevada mountain range (“The Range of Light” as John Muir called it). HeartSpace exists to steward the land, and curate a sanctuary that brings people closer to Nature and its beauty. At 3200 feet elevation, this gorgeous 27 acre property hosts a wonderful diversity of trees, plants and wildlife.
Surrounded by pine forest, two sides of the property are bordered by protected old-growth forest (NID Conservation) where one can find an abundance of grand old oaks, twisted madrones and manzanitas, as well as aspen, birch, fruit trees, wildflowers such as wild roses, and many others. During the right seasons and times, mushroom hunting is superb. Native wildlife include bear, deer, wild turkeys, squirrels, lizards, frogs, butterflies, dragonflies, and many others. It’s also a birder’s paradise and is listed by the National Audubon Society. We even have the remains of an old miner’s cabin from the 1800’s on the property. When you enter the property, take a moment to be present: the positive, uplifting energy is palpable. As well as being on sacred land, the property and its spaces have been blessed and sanctified many times over by Native Americans and shamans and healers from other disciplines.
Situated in the Tahoe National Forest, HeartSpace is a 20 minute hike to a semi-private pristine lake, just 5 minutes by car from Scotts Flat Lake (or a 20 minute hike), 15 minutes from downtown Nevada City, 20 minutes to the Yuba River, and less than an hour from Sugar Bowl ski resort. Boreal, Truckee/Donner Ski Area, and the town of Truckee. There are also multiple hiking and mountain biking trails accessible directly from the property or within walking distance.
Let’s not forget that HeartSpace is only 90 minutes to the shore of Lake Tahoe, the jewel of the Sierras, and one of the most amazing places in the WORLD.
