  • Description


    Hello, I am a recent land owner with 10 acres and 4 Pacific yurts! As a well seasoned traveler, I know how awesome it is to stay with others, cook big dinners and get projects done! I would love your help in exchange. The vision for this property is to create a place for people to come see what off-grid living is all about, community for earth conscious veggie growing, living off the land kinda folks! My off grid system is solar powered, propane generator and humanure! It is extremely peaceful, wonder place in the Sierra Foothills. 25 minutes outside of Nevada City awesome little town! Come help my vision along in the very beginning stages!!

  • Space for parking camper vans

    Space for parking camper vans

    The road coming in is dirt gravel. I would be willing to host a van but if it is not AWD/4WD I would ask that it isn’t something that get daily driving in & out during your stay here as it will impact and tear up my driveway.

  • Can possibly accept pets

    Can possibly accept pets

    I love pets, I do have a dog here already and she does not do great with other dog unless properly introduced. It would take some time and patience but I would be willing to try and offer help to integrate them. She would do better with a submissive, friendly larger dog, than another alpha.
