About the property

Beautifully Renovated 1 Bedroom Victorian in Historic Downtown

Set among tall pines and full of beautifully restored Victorian homes, Nevada City is not only rich in gold rush history but also in natural and cultural pleasures. Full of quaint shops, an abundance of artistic offerings, and many superb restaurants, Nevada City has been called the "Carmel of the Sierra Foothills".

This cozy Victorian home, built in 1890, is just a five-minute stroll away from Broad Street, the main thoroughfare of the historic downtown district. Inside, you'll find all the comforts and delights of a perfect vacation rental. Sip lemonade from the front porch, or enjoy a good book in the parlor.

Simply and stylishly decorated, the house retains many original features including the high ceilings, crown molding, doors, knobs and windows. In the formal bedroom, you'll find a new queen bed with new organic cotton bedding. The kitchen is equipped with serving sets, flatware, utensils, and all your basic cooking supplies, including a French press for your morning coffee or tea, and a high-speed Hamilton blender for smoothies or margaritas.

The living room has a comfortable sofa (which makes for an excellent nap) and a flat-screen TV with streaming media loaded (Netflix, Amazon Instant Video). Catch up on all your Downton Abbey or Modern Family between hikes, shopping, dining and downtown events!

About Sumee Chang

My husband and I live in the Bay Area but we both grew up together in a small town in Missouri. So we love small towns with interesting personalities and a lot of deep history, which is why we were so lucky to find Nevada City. This gem of a town is actually a bit of a hidden treasure, so if you are planning a trip here consider yourself an insider!

Sumee Chang purchased this house in 2015

Why Sumee Chang chose Gold Country / High Sierra

This house captures the simplicity and charm of a bygone era. With its lofty ceilings, and adorable front porch to details like original knobs, windows and even above door transoms, it's a step back in time with all the comforts of modern living.

What makes this house unique

You'll be just a 5 minute walk into the heart of the downtown district. Park at the house and be able to easily access all of the spectacular events and everyday hum that Nevada City has to offer in the downtown district.The quiet street means a peaceful nights sleep and morning so you can enjoy your stay without any disruptions.

Cute, spacious home that perfectly embodies Nevada City's charm

  • 5 of 5

I was very pleased with this location. It was clean, cute, quaint and oh-so charming. It is a short walk to downtown, even in dresses and heels, and still remote enough to enjoy the peace and quiet of being away from the happenings on Broad Street. Sumee is extremely accommodating as well. My only recommendation for those who have never been to Nevada City before is to make sure to ask all information PRIOR TO arrival, no matter what you are doing in town, as Nevada City itself has very poor cell-service. Though this is more than ideal for a weekend getaway, I was in town for my wedding, and it made coordinating any pop-up events or answering last minute questions a smidge difficult. Luckily, the wifi available at this location worked flawlessly.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Super charming Victorian home with all the updated conveniences and so close to downtown. Lovely back patio and for a BBQ and quiet reading. Wake up to birds in a delightfully sunny and bright room. Kitchen has everything for preparing meals.

Great spot, clean and well loved. Charming owner, Sumee, who was always on call if I needed anything.

Thank you ! Will return.

Sweet home and great location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Nevada City and we loved the house and the location. We felt right at home there immediately as the house itself has lots of charm and simplicity. The location was great as we walked to town every day. It is in a nice neighborhood with very little street traffic. The bed and the bedding were super comfy and we slept great every night. Our only complaint was that there was no dresser drawers in the bedroom so we had to live out of our suitcases on the floor. A dresser would have made us feel even more at home. The owner, Sumee, was wonderful to deal with and we would definitely rent from her again.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful victorian-style home in Nevada City makes for a wonderful vacation. We immediately felt right at home here. It's perfectly situated on a quiet residential street, with just a quick walk to downtown. The house had all of the amenities we needed, including a very comfortable mattress. We spent many lazy hours lounging on the porch and relaxing in the backyard. Can't wait to come back!

Cozy and great location!

  • 5 of 5

This little house is cozy, comfortable, and just right for a long 10 day stay like mine. Very quiet neighborhood. The church bells in the distance were so special. Like a European town. A quick walk to Three Forks (creative and delicious bakery cafe) in town was a great morning treat, and many restaurants to choose from for other meals. In the house, everything worked and the owner was very helpful with the couple requests I had. Very pleasant to sit outside on the back patio or front porch on a warm evening. I would certainly return.

Great place, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay here over NYE weekend with our toddler and infant, and it was great. Very close to downtown and walk-able to restaurants and shops, but far enough away that you feel more like you're in a neighborhood. The space is sparsely but tastefully decorated. The modest kitchen had just what we needed to cook a few simple meals ourselves when we didn't feel like going to a restaurant. (We even baked cookies while we watched the snow fall.) The bed and bed linens are good quality and comfortable. Stove heater in the living room keeps the place mostly warm, but there are plenty of space heaters to use in the bedroom, kitchen, etc. Our toddler loved the hammock in the back and especially, the snow! Would definitely rent this place again on our next trip to Nevada City.
