    Owl Lodge is the perfect retreat/get-away for those seeking a peaceful and beautiful spot. Enjoy inspiring views of forest lands from the deck. At night observe thousands of stars in the sky, to the sound of chirping frogs. In the spring enjoy our natural style pond and many flowers. In addition, there are many other wonderful activities to partake in all year round and seasonally including the following: snow skiing, swimming, hiking, fishing, boating, mountain biking, etc.

    Sugar Bowl Ski Resort is just 45 minutes away, an amazing mountain-bike trail entrance that goes for 120 miles is just half a mile away. Five vineyards are less than 30 minutes from this property and the “magical,” “sun-hugged,” “granite-lined” Yuba River is just seven miles away. The Nevada Theater, where Mark Twain read in the 1860's is just three miles away still features monthly plays.

    The Tahoe National Forest is located in the northern Sierra Nevada. Rivers, snow-capped peaks, and dense forests offer outstanding recreation year round. Nevada City is usually below the snow line but it’s close enough to be atop a world-class mountain in less than an hour. The closest ski resorts are 45 minutes east on Donner Summit. Here guests will find Sugar Bowl, Donner Ski Ranch, Soda Springs, Boreal Mountain Resort and Royal Gorge Cross Country Ski Resort.

    Another 15 minutes will take glampers to the Northstar, Tahoe-Donner, Squaw Valley, and Alpine Meadows. Steep Hollow, a nearby cross-country ski trail system marked by the Nordic Skiers of Nevada County, is located on Highway 20 just past the Alpha-Omega rest stop 18 miles east of Nevada City.
