This special land is part of a multi-parcel wildlife corridor, helping to provide valuable habitat between the state parks, along the creek and river. Out your doorstep, you'll find more than 15-miles of private, groomed, hiking, biking and horseback riding trails and have an opportunity to reconnect with nature. Our solar-powered farmhouse overlooks the mountains and an organic orchard and garden, with two queen bedrooms lined with hand-milled sugar pine from the land, strong wifi/tv, waterfalls, and private network of trails to hike or bike. Walk to refreshing creek swimming hole or private Yuba river swimming access available at certain times. Included in your stay is seasonal organic produce to gather out your doorstep in our family's organic garden and hammocks to relax in under the fruit treas and at the creek. The two bedrooms downstairs have queen beds handcrafted of sugar pine milled from downed trees from the land and are fitted with organic sheets. Downstairs has a bathroom with tub and shower, living room with mid-century furniture, views of the orchard and a tv for cozy movie nights. Upstairs is a fully-stocked kitchen with gas stove, oven, and all chef's amenities, foldout queen sleeper, bathroom with shower and outdoor table for a sunset dinner. Cool mountain air refreshes your nights or feel the luxury of air conditioning on a hot summer afternoon. After a relaxing day in the mountains, perhaps star gaze from the patio or orchard. To get to the sandy beach and creek spot, called Barkhouse Beach, take an easy stroll through the forest. The nearby Barkhouse, close to the creek, is a reconstruction of a typical Maidu Indian dwelling. Walk inside to experience the traditional history of this land. Or cool off in the Yuba River at the South Yuba River State Park, just a 5-minute drive from the farmhouse. Ask about accommodating additional guests.Our luxe, solar-powered farmhouse has the convenience of high speed wifi and comfort of central a/c and heat, while overlooking the mountains and an organic orchard and garden along the Yuba River. Rest in two queen bedrooms lined with hand-milled sugar pine from the land downstairs and one queen daybed upstairs. Enjoy more than 15 miles of private, groomed trails to hike or bike. Walk to a refreshing creek swimming hole or rejuvenate in a spectacular, private Yuba river swimming hole with paddleboards and kayaks, available just for your group at reserved times. Gather seasonal organic produce at our family's garden outside your doorstep and relax in hammocks under the fruit treas. Cook delicious meals or arrange catering or take-out in our fully-stocked kitchen with gas stove, oven, and all chef's amenities, or bbq outside for a sunset dinner.

Yuba River Farmhouse
The garden house was lovely as was the property! The hiking trails right out the back door were so well maintained and a really magical experience. The bedrooms were comfy, and the internet, heat, and electricity worked well. The kitchen was a bit outdated and bare bones, but the grill was great. Would definitely want to come back and check out some of the other cabins on the property, everything was so beautiful. Also, the host, Alicia, was very responsive and helpful!

Alicia was a great host. Communication was easy and efficient. Her property has a lot of different trails and we enjoyed our time hiking. We look forward to visit again.

We spent a lovely weekend at Alicia’s organic farmhouse, mountain biking in the Nevada City area and on the property’s own well-designed trails, floating on the Yuba nearby, and watching the Perseids meteor shower while cooking some great group dinners. Picking our own fruits and vegetables straight from the garden was such a treat! One of the best Hipcamps around.

Magical river and trails
Our stay exceeded our expectations in every way. The river was heaven on earth. We made delicious meals featuring fresh fruits and veggies from the garden—blackberry crisp and tomato basil pasta, yum! The family’s stewardship of this land is off the charts. Thank you Alicia and family for our magical stay. We hope to return!
