Overview

About the property

3 bedroom, 1.5 bathrooms with view and sounds from the brook.

Amazing ambiance! This charming house is just a couple blocks from downtown in the small Gold Rush village of Sierra City. The house is cozy and private. But its greatest attraction is the peaceful sound of a small brook cascading past the deck and water trickling down the rock patio wall.

This house has three bedrooms, each with queen bed. One large bedroom also has a trundle bed that pulls out into two twin beds. This two-story house has one full bath and one half bath, one on each level.

Hardwood deck looks out over a small year-round stream that provides great sounds!

Requires a 3-day minimum rental, some holidays require 4-day minimum. Off-season and in between other rentals can request a 2-day minimum.

About Tobias Young

I've been visiting Sierra City since I was a kid. Michelle and I have brought our children to the Sierra mountains since they were kids. We live in the Bay Area most of the time, but we love to enjoy our special Sierra City House as much as we can!

Tobias Young purchased this house in 1999

Why Tobias Young chose Gold Country / High Sierra

I've been visiting family in Sierra City since I was 7-years-old. We bought this house in 1999 because of its Gold Rush-era rock walls, the year-round stream that runs through the property and the summertime shade from the trees. It is a wonderful spot.

What makes this house unique

The stream gives the house a unique ambiance, filling its rooms with the soft tumble of cascading water. You can watch the stream from the deck outside, under the shade of trees. The setting makes you never want to leave, even though biking, swimming, hiking, fishing, cross-country skiing, golf and other pursuits are minutes away.

Tranquil Sierra City Home

  • 5 of 5

I had an opportunity at the last minute to get out of town and was grateful to find Toby's getaway home available. The house is as wonderful as the other reviews claim but what really sets this location apart was Toby's responsiveness and attention to his guests enjoyment. I was traveling in Feb, so he was careful to double checked road conditions and provided excellent travel recommendations. He even recommend great trails and had the place warm and prepared for our arrival in less than 24 hours of first contact!

The combination of a great location, spacious areas, with wonderful views and a excellent host makes this a perfect getaway stay. I will definitely be going back.

Thanks you Toby,

Brian

A family vacation week in Sierra City

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house for our family of four adults, two children and two dogs. Plenty of room inside with spacious kitchen and great deck. Used the Sierra City location for easy access to spots in the Lakes Basin Recreation Area. Toby was accessible and prompt in responding to any questions we had by email. We are looking forward to staying again.

The Sierra City House in October

  • 4 of 5

We so enjoyed the location, layout and accommodations in this vacation rental. Every window gave you a view of the trees. The sleeping arrangements were perfect. The beds were very comfortable. When we cooked or BBQ'd everything we needed was there plus everything worked!

We have recommended the property to others. We do plan on booking again.

We walked to town. There is a well stocked store. Very quaint environment. We were off season however still able to have a drink, dinner as well as conversations with locals.

It rained much of the visit. We still 4 wheeled off road, went fishing, hiked...the best was no TV. Did not tell the kids about the internet access. We played games, talked and laughed while we relaxed.

Thank you Toby and family for sharing your home.

Great place to just chill out

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for a week with some extended family and thoroughly enjoyed the property as well as laid back Sierra City and environs. The house is very comfortable for a group, both indoors and out, and we all enjoyed the sounds of the stream from the deck and bedrooms. There are great nearby hikes and spots on the Yuba River to cool off and go fishing. The owner was responsive and helpful. I hope that we'll be able to go back in the future.

Fall Downhillers in Daville via Sierra City House

  • 5 of 5

The Sierra City house is fantastic in every way each time we stay. For four years now we have rented this house for a weekend of mountain biking, relaxation, quality time together as an extended family. We cook all of our meals and appreciate the kitchen lay out as typically there are three of us cooking and tasking, it flows! The down stair large bedroom becomes the guy's room and the two up stair are taken be the two couples. We are all very comfortable in this house, the lay out works for our big group, the fire place is a wonderful addition when used as is the BBQ on the back patio area. The site itself is so beautiful and the sound of the creek lovely! Plenty of parking and deck space for the bikes and gear.

SCH is a gem!
