We visited the Moonshadow Cottage in early October. After driving the dusty, winding roads of Nevada County, we were greeted by a super sweet and smiley yellow lab. Upon entering the cottage you are immediately met with color and comfort. The back patio has lots of pretty potted plants and red Adirondack chairs. The view is beautiful- rolling hills of Pine and Oak trees. We kinda had a busy three days, but it is definitely a place to relax and enjoy the view. My kid wants to return if only to pet the friendly lab once more and curl up with the entire collection of Calvin and Hobbes books. The well water is super refreshing and tastes good too. We always appreciate a sweet place that is kid and dog friendly. Thank you so much!

Jill and Jon's place is great! The property is quiet and beautiful. We especially enjoyed the view from the front deck. Also, their dog Jack is the sweetest!

We loved our stay at the moonshadow cottage. It's even prettier in person than in photos- beautifully decorated and very comfortable for our three night stay. We enjoyed the deck and being able to see the stars at night, and using the well appointed kitchen. If you're looking for a cozy, quiet spot to get away from things and maybe take some trips to the Yuba River, this is the spot for you.

Jill & Jon's place in the Sierra's was perfect for our Labor Day weekend. Nestled in Tahoe National Forest and only a short drive from the Yuba River & Nevada City, the location couldn't have been better. Air-conditioning, a nice deck for some early morning cribbage, and a friendly pup paying us a visit were all welcome amenities. Thanks again and highly recommend.

It was nice and quiet,beautiful surroundings.Thank God for the a/c as we were in a bad heat wave that they were having.I was mostly grateful for the 100% cotton bedding.Bring all that you need from the store ,its not a quick jaunt to the nearest store ,to me anyways ,coming from a small town where things are closer.Could use some upgrades but all in all it was a sweet place.

We are partially retired and love the river and traveling. We live on 5 acres and have an organic garden and a 5 year old lab named Jack Straw. We look forward to meeting you and sharing adventures.
