· Nevada City, Nevada, California
4 acres hosted by Kelly V.
3 lodging sites · 1 RV/tent site
Four acres nestled in the Sierra Nevada Foothills. We are located at 4200 Ft Elevation, just 3.5 miles from the top of the mountain with 360 degree lookouts. You're about 35 minutes from Historic downtown Nevada City, only 15 minutes from many Yuba River swimming holes, and about 6 miles to the Malakoff Diggins State Park. This property is fully off-grid, run on solar and back up generator. We are technically above snow line! So if you are trying to beat the heat it is about 5-10 degrees cooler at our location! This is a peaceful oasis for you to stay why explore the Sierra Nevada Mountains. We are creating a collective community vibe for nature lovers and explorers to have a safe and beautiful place to rest and share.

Kelly was such a great host and all the directions were perfectly clear. The land was great, my partner and I loved staying in the bus and getting away from the city for a night (we only wish it was longer!) As others have mentioned, you can feel the love that has been put onto the land & within the spaces. My partner loved reading a book among the trees in the morning and I loved the stars at night. Happy to have gotten to visit and look forward to coming back in the future <33

Perfect Reboot
Kelly's property is very special - my teen daughter, old lady dog, and I really loved it. Just a quick weekend to pause before back-to-school craze, we got some peace and quiet, nice swimmimg, and great food in the area. Movie night with a Skylight to the stars actually won against the meteor shower competition; we just preferred to "stay in" (figuratively). Hopefully we will be back!

My friend and I really enjoyed our night in the school bus! It’s obvious a lot of love and effort went into the conversion! The outside bed was also super comfortable and I’d highly recommend a peaceful nights sleep outside in it! The outdoor shower was a great touch and we really loved having a nice private shower while still being in nature. Kelly was a great host and pointed us in the direction of an amazing place to swim in the Yuba river! I wish we had been able to stay a few more days!

Recently stayed a couple nights for my fiances birthday. Kelly is so sweet and hospitable and had great recommendations for the area. You can tell how much love she's poured into her space and property. It was such a cool, unique stay off the beaten path with the bus and outdoor bed. And definitely take advantage of the outdoor cinema! It was a wonderfully sweet last evening with my fiance watching a movie under the stars. You'll need bug spray which you can get herbal options at the local all organic adorable mother truckers store, or deet options at the local gas station a little further down the road. The area so close to rivers and beautiful woods was just what we needed.

Charming, charming, charming
Kelly is a sincere host dedicated to her land and mountain. The school bus is charming and set on the back of her property so it’s private. There are solar string lights and mosquito netting for the nearby queen bed if you want to sleep under the trees and stars. The “Mother Truckers” grocery store nearby is one of the most amazingly well stocked small grocery I’ve ever seen. In sum the entire experience was wonderful and I most highly recommend!

We loved our stay with Kelly, felt so welcomed and fortunate to be apart of her space. Such a beautiful spot surrounded by nature and a wonderful experience for the kids. Would definitely recommend
