The Downieville Retreat Experience:

This retreat offers something for everyone.  Fantastic for families and outdoor enthusiast.  Located in the small Northern California town of Downieville on the Downey River, it is the last home on a private lane at the end of the valley.  You will enjoy all day sun in total privacy with over two acres of lush green lawn rolling into the river.  There is a private beach with a sunbathing area for your enjoyment.  If you would prefer to take a moment to meditate there is a meditation area over looking a year round waterfall. 

For those that enjoy a little more sweating with their retreat: you can launch your kayak into the river, mountain bike until your calves burn, or hike the trails that only lie 100 feet from the property, the largest trail system in the Sierra County. 

We feel whatever your interests, you will find the Downieville Retreat exactly what you need to recharge and get back to nature.  We hope you enjoy your stay.
