Nestled in the beautiful Sierra Nevada Foothills. Make Hilltops Acres the hub for your Nevada County adventure! There are so many things to do and places to explore, all within 30 minutes of our camp. Take a dip in the South Yuba River, visit Empire Mine State Historic Park, check out one of the many wineries, or stroll along historic downtown Grass Valley and Nevada City. A great place to relax, play fun outdoor games, take in the breathtaking sunrise/sunset views, and simply enjoy our beautiful surroundings. Song birds and wildlife will narrate your stay on our 10+ acre property. Time takes on a different meaning out here. You’ll feel yourself relax into a slower pace-into the here and now. If you sit still, you can observe the wild flock of quail, the occasional pheasant, wild turkeys, and deer passing through on their daily routes. You can also check out our growing little farm. We have chickens, turkeys, goats, pigs and a mini horse. Unwind with a day at the river or lake, take a road or mountain bike ride, or a hike on one of the many local trails. You’ll be staying just 25 minutes away from the pristine South Yuba River. Wanna shop or check out a part of the Gold Rush history? The historic downtown Grass Valley and Nevada City are just 15 minutes away as well. There is so much local history and many cultural activities to enjoy in our area, boasting a variety of mom and pop shops, delicious eateries, and eclectic "watering holes" featuring craft brews, local wines and tasty cocktails. Live music in many locations adds an upbeat and lively ambiance. No matter what you choose to do on your stay, we know you’ll enjoy every minute of it here at Hilltop Acres.Our Glamping Tipi / Tepee: No need to “rough it” at Hilltop Acres! This tipi comes fully furnished with a Queen size plush pillowtop bed, complete with luxury bamboo-derived bedding giving you the most soft, breathable, and comfortable nights’s sleep. On request, we can also provide 2 additional twin sized camping mattresses (no linens provided) Sit out and enjoy the breathtaking views of the Sierra Foothills on our Airondeck chairs. Or take a nap under the trees in the hanging hammocks. Erected in a triangular fashion, the shape and design allow tipis to keep warm during winter and cool during summer. But if more comfort is what you require, turn on our provided cooling fan because this tipi also comes with electricity! With the 12 outlet and 6 usb surge tower, you don’t need to disconnect from the world unless you want to. Also available at no extra cost is a coffee bar inside your tipi for those slow mornings when you don’t feel like walking across the way to the outdoor kitchen. Did we say outdoor kitchen?! Yes! Glamping isn’t Glamping unless you can griddle up some French toast or whatever else your fancy heart desires. Our outdoor kitchen comes with an extra large sink, hot plate, griddle, personal sized crockpot, and extra electrical outlets. We even have some dishware and cooking utensils for you. All kitchen amenities are stored outside, so we recommend giving them a quick rinse before each use. Or if you prefer the old fashioned camping way, we provide a briquette BBQ. (Briquettes for purchase) And during fire season we provide a propane fire pit so you don’t have to forgo the nighttime s’mores and ambiance as you star gaze and listen to the wildlife come alive. Also on site is a full indoor bath. Flushing toilet, sink and shower make your stay easy and comfortable. And to top it all off we provide an EV Charging station! Activities Besides the walking and bike trails, the South Yuba River 25 minutes away, wineries in every direction, and the historic Grass Valley and Nevada City Gold Mining towns just minutes away... You can also check out our growing little farm. For just $30 visit with our little lawn mower goats, Flower, Pig (yes, a goat) and UniHorn. Snuggle with the two lady pigs, Pickles and Pepper. Meet our cute little mini horse, Cookie. Feed the chickens, Guinea hens and peacocks. And play around with our people loving livestock guardian dogs Ari and Diesel. Also available on site at no extra cost is a horseshoe pit You won’t get bored, unless that’s your goal, here at Hilltop Acres!

Glamping Tipi w/ Full Indoor Bath
Needs some love but will be back
My partner and I really enjoyed our stay here at the tipi and Valerie was awesome. We especially loved our farm visit! We really only have two things that could be improved upon. First, the bathroom and kitchen were quite dirty. Yes it’s glamping and it’s even recommended in the description you wash before using the stuff but this felt a little extra dirty and the hot plate did not work. The griddle was also pretty beat up. Valerie was awesome at bringing over some cleaning supplies and we made it work! Second, the tipi is located near a shop they rent out to a gentlemen that works on cars and so every evening until late he would be tinkering around and people would come and go- they did not bother us but as two females it felt pretty uncomfortable and not as private. Overall, I still would come back and have already recommended it to friends! Just needs a little tlc and maybe another fence?

Josh and Valerie have a very nice property in a beautiful area. The tipi was so cute, and the provided fans helped a lot with the heat. The full bath was a great convenience too!

We loved our two nights in Valerie and Josh’s glamping spot! It was peaceful, well stocked with kitchen essentials and the teepee and nighttime lights made for a cozy setup. We really enjoyed the short farm tour and the eggs were great!
