The SpaceThe 'Ohana House is nestled in a cozy hollow, yet gets plenty of sun. The space is modern, clean and fresh, with a cute kitchen and small dining area, a desk/office area, sitting area, bedroom area, and bath with a custom tile shower. There is a European washer/dryer in the unit, and a small outdoor breakfast area that overlooks that back yard.

I appreciate the opportunity to chat briefly, give you a tour of features of the 'Ohana House, and answer any questions. After you settle in, it's likely you won't see me at all, unless we meet in passing. However, great conversation with travelers is always appreciated. :) Please be aware that check-in is generally between 3:00 and 6:00 p.m. on your arrival date. While other arrangements can generally be made, if you are unable to respect an agreed upon timeframe, please consider staying at a motel, as extremely late arrivals impact my family and neighbors.

The SpaceLog cabin adventure. Starry nights in the hot tub. Happy noises from children's camps during the summer months. Very quiet the rest of the year. After dark serenades from owls and crickets! Flat screen T.V. Simulated wood gas stove provides romantic flame lit ambiance. There are two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and one with a double bed, a small loft over the kitchen with one twin, and a skinny ladder to access, and a futon couch that makes into a double bed in the living room. We don't recommend the loft for older adults or younger children. Guest AccessThere is a private hot tub off the deck. Interaction with GuestsDrue is on the property daily. We have three cabins and 5 acres to care for. We are not at all intrusive, but do enjoy interaction with our guests. We often have artists and writers who appreciate being undisturbed. We honor their wishes as best we can. Rene and I are only a phone call away. The NeighborhoodOur neighbors are mostly children's camps that are in session during the summer months. We live in a forested area that is not visible from the street. Our night skies are not polluted by any city lights. The number of stars visible in our sky often stun our guests from the city. Hiking trails abound. Yuba River's Purdon Crossing is only 3.5 miles from the cabin. Many clear deep pools and warm boulders. Getting AroundThere is a taxi service that can take you to downtown Nevada City. From there, busses are available to local destinations. Other Things to NoteWildlife share our forest. If one is very quiet, one might enjoy a memorable sighting of squirrels, deer, bear, or even a lion! Fox and Bobcats are quite common. (Lions and bear's extremely rare!) Be sure to keep your pet on a leash when outdoors. Dogs are eager to chase wildlife and then get lost.

Defined by many as the finest preserved of the Gold Rush Towns, Nevada City is rich in history. In 1849 a prospector found gold in Deer Creek, and soon the miners were pulling as much as a pound of pay dirt a day from the creek. The town was first called Deer Creek Dry Diggins, but was changed in 1850 to "Nevada". It became Nevada City soon after to avoid confusion with the state of Nevada. Nevada City is set among the tall pines, Victorian houses, and the many historical buildings. The historic district includes 93 buildings that are listed with the National Register of Historic Places, and there are 18 landmarks that are also registered. There are many quaint shops, an abundance of artistic pursuits, and so many superb restaurants, that Nevada City has been given the nickname of "Carmel of the Sierra Foothills". Easy one mile walk to downtown Nevada City. Ski resorts, Lake Tahoe, Reno, local lakes, rivers, stimulating hikes or many of the other stunning attractions are within a two hour drive from Chief Kelly Cottages.

Interaction with GuestsWe will meet you when you first arrive, give you the rand tour and answer any of your questions! After that you are on your own, call us if you need anything and we will happily respond. The NeighborhoodThe neighborhood is residential. There are many families, so its a fairly quiet environment. You will even see people sitting on their porches at times! In case you are wondering, they probably won't be smoking and old corn cob pipe, nor will they be cleaning their old hand guns, rifles or shotguns! Getting AroundThere is not much public transportation around Chief Kelly Cottages. Nevada City is a shot walk (less than a mile), with many fine restaurants, live music and bars. Lake Tahoe (2 hours drive), Ski Resorts, Local Lakes, Rivers and some hiking trails will require transportation.
