Right on Main Street , this spacious, remodeled loft occupies the top two stories of the building and has spectacular river side and mountain views. The bottom floor is home to Yuba Expeditions, host to the Downieville Classic and where mountain bikers catch the shuttle for the Downieville Downhill.

The space

Originally built in 1867, the "Weaver" building, as it is known in the county, was completely remodeled in 2005. The third story, originally storage for the store, was remodeled into rental loft accommodations complete with hand made furniture and trim salvaged from Kezar stadium bleachers in San Francisco.

The loft sleeps up to eight guests in three queen size beds and three trundle beds in a loft style space -- not great for romantic couples but GREAT for large groups of friends or bike buddies.

Interaction with guests

We have no personal interaction with guests, as we live in San Francisco, but there is some interaction to be expected with Yuba bike shop downstairs, and we do ask guests to respect their business and to be aware that there is inevitably some noise to be expected from a busy bike shop with shuttles and people coming in and out.

You simply cannot beat this place if you are a looking for a base in Downieville, especially for the mountain biking crowd. It's Mecca! Bibi and Jeff are the best. Very accommodating, prompt, professional. I hate to talk it up much more, it's already hard enough already to get reservations in prime mountain biking season!

Perfect for a group of buys going mountain biking. Bring some extra pillows, blankets and towels if you're a big party. BBQ has a broken wheel. Guys at Yuba, downstairs, are awesome. Make sure you bring your own bike locks as they can't go into the apartment.

The Loft is an amazing place! It is completely charming, has everything you need to be comfortable, and has a great location in town next to the river, the grocery story and local eateries. Bibi and Jeff were very responsive to messages and gracious hosts. The only hitch was some after hours noise on two of the nights with some partying from folks in the bike shop below (we expected noise during business hours...just not after). The folks in the bike shop were actually pretty nice and the Loft really was a great place to stay.

My friend Jeff and I got this building together and plan to use it ourselves with our friends when we can and rent it out when we can't. He is a lab scientist guy and I am a financial analyst, both in San Francisco. We are pretty hands off hosts, as we are located in San Francisc…
