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.
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.
