The coziest Gold Rush stay!
This spot was perfect for our midweek remote work getaway! The wifi was fast enough for Zoom video calls with no problems, and we used the cabin's iMac to watch a DVD from Su's collection. We played board games, loved having the French press coffeemaker, and used the stove and dishes to make our own meals. Everything was super clean, the bathroom was surprisingly big, and the loft space was delightful with comfy bedding (sleeping bags are also provided if you want to skip the loft). Bonus: We were so glad it was pet-friendly and brought our blue heeler. 🐶 All of the charming design details were a highlight, as was the restored wood stove (with plenty of firewood provided, for both the indoor stove and the outdoor fire pit). With the stove, the cabin was plenty warm for a winter stay (although we left just a couple hours before the first snow). All of the restoration work is super impressive. The fencing around most of the cabin gives plenty of privacy. We'll be back!

Great little getaway
Lovely little spot! Very well curated while still paying homage to the original cabin. Our 3.5-year-old loved the loft, swinging in the hammock, and coloring at the table. We'll be back!

Secluded cabin
Su’s property was amazing. Tucked away and pretty secluded. The decor was fantastic and very vintage. The vibe was so cozy and the loft bed made it feel like we were staying in a tree house. We picked a pretty hot weekend to get away so the cabin was hot to sleep in but Su provided fans so that was helpful! The backyard was amazing to relax in. The only thing I would say is that the bed situation is pretty tight and wouldn’t be good for really tall people. Overall, We loved our stay and will be back again!

A great escape from the city
Heidis Goldnugget was such a nice and ideal stay away from city. It’s a really cozy cabin with some modern amenities. Su was very helpful and a great host. Bonus: The vintage speakers were a really nice touch which you can connect via Bluetooth.

We enjoyed being able to go hiking in the nearby area, and check out some of the shops in Nevada City, and then retreat back to the quiet of the Gold Nugget. The cabin is well stocked, the surroundings are quiet and relaxing, and our dog loved being able to hang with us on the front porch. Highly recommend a stay at Su's cabin, we'll definitely be back.
