A beautiful contemporary lodge-style home in a spectacular lower mountain setting five minutes from charming and dynamic Nevada City. Eight private acres allow for wonderful outdoor living with the sounds of only nature to relax by.

The space

Rocky Top is a beautiful gated estate property consisting of eight acres of forested splendor. Just five minutes from town and yet no other homes are visible from the property. The views are of distant mountains, magnificent trees and wild life. It is a retreat you may find hard to leave other than to enjoy the restaurants, shopping and nightlife of magical Nevada City just down the hill.

The 2800 sq.ft. home is designed in Tahoe lodge style. The large mountain view terrace has a hot tub nestled in giant boulders. The forest and mountain view deck is enormous. You can hike for 1/2 hour and never leave the property.

At Rocky Top you will be reminded of a favorite setting in France or Italy. The views, the flora and the animal life are very similar to the lower Alps. The magnificent swimming ponds of the Yuba river are only 15 minutes down the road. Lake Tahoe is an easy and beautiful hour and fifteen minute drive away.

Rocky Top is not your typical rental. This is our home and we make it available for others to enjoy when we are gone. We have a home in Mexico and we spend a good deal of time visiting friends and family around the county during the summer months.

You will find the things that one would expect in a real home including a full spice cabinet, all appliances large and small and many items that you will not need to bring or shop for.

All the amenities you could hope for are included. You will use our Netflix account for movie downloads. The home has high speed w-fi and cellular data at the home is LTE (4G). The gardener will show up every Thursday to keep things looking good. On longer stays maid service will be provided once every two weeks. There will be a nice bottle of wine and munchies to greet you when you arrive. If one of you plays the guitar there will be one for your use. We want you to enjoy Rocky Top as your own. We think you will love it. Please scroll down page to just below 'View Calendar' for a link to our slideshow.

We accept credit cards, (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) and cashier's checks. There is a $150 cleaning fee and a security deposit required. Some dogs allowed by advance arrangement only.

My friends and I had the most relaxing weekend getaway at Kevin and Jeanne's home in Nevada City. The place was even better than we imagined, and Kevin & Jeanne gave us great instructions & tips for the area. Would definitely recommend staying here. We didn't want to leave!

This place is great!!! I just stayed here with some friends and we had the best time! This house is gorgeous and very clean and the scenery around the house is great. We particularly liked the way it was landscaped. The beds were also very comfortable. Also the owners were great to communicate with and there was a bottle of wine for us when we got there which was really nice. Overall, it was a great experience! Also as a bonus - Nevada City is a great town.

We travel extensively and we enjoy sharing the "Rocky Top Experience" with nice people. You will enjoy the privacy - complete - and the beauty of the Sierras and yet you will be 5 - 7 minutes from the most vibrant town in Sierras. We think you will love it.
