Sierra Solitude

Sierra Solitude

Sierra Solitude is a spacious, beautifully furnished mountain home situated on 3 private acres deep in the forest at an elevation of 5200 feet. For those seeking extraordinary tranquility and privacy, Sierra Solitude is the perfect getaway.

Your drive to Sierra Solitude will take you along a glorious stretch of the Yuba-Donner Scenic Byway, and you will feel yourself shifting naturally into a slower, more relaxed gear as you leave the crowds far behind.

Sierra County is made up almost entirely of forest and is the second least-populated county in California. If you enjoy getting away from it all, this is definitely the place for you!

Highway 80 via Donner Pass and Truckee

Travel On I-80 East past Sacramento, making sure to follow the signs towards Reno (and NOT heading towards South Lake Tahoe on 50). Keep following the signs for Truckee and travel over Donner Summit. At Truckee look for the sign for the Highway 267/Highway 89 exit towards Sierraville (this is the last Truckee exit). Take this exit and turn left at the signal onto Highway 89. Keep following the signs for Sierraville.

In Sierraville you will come to an intersection and see a sign for Downieville via Highway 49. Turn left and drive across the valley towards Downieville. At the end of the valley you will see a sign for Bassetts, Sierra City and Downieville via Highway 49. Stay on the same road (it becomes Highway 49), bearing left. Keep going for another 13 miles, up over Yuba Pass, to Bassetts (enjoying the beautiful scenery along the Yuba-Donner Scenic Bypass on the way!)

At Bassetts, stay on the main road (Highway 49) for another couple of miles. You will cross a bridge (Salmon Creek Bridge) and we are the first right at the end of the bridge (Salmon Creek Road). On Salmon Creek Road make a left, and you're there!
