Eudaimonia is a unique, enchanted wellness retreat in Nevada City, California. Perched just above the majestic Yuba River in the forests of the Sierra Nevada foothills, Eudaimonia offers an eco-chic setting for relaxation, reconnection, healing, and transformation. Unwind in our (clothing-optional) Crystal Spa nestled in the trees above a spring-fed creek, including: a Scandinavian-style cedar sauna (w/crystal-grid), colloidal silver- and UV-filtered hot tub, outdoor baths & showers, indoor straw bale bathhouse with private deep soaking tubs/rain showers, community kitchen, Madrone Hieron meditation & yoga temple, stunning views and vibrant nature, this is a perfect refuge to rejuvenate and enjoy life in the serenity and inspiration of the mountains!
We have 8 units available:
The Magic House:
A 1500 foot elegant cabin with 20-ft ceilings, very large windows that look out onto gorgeous mountain views, and plenty of skylights offering excellent natural lighting. There is a large living room with a comfortable couch, dining room table, and wood-fired stove to keep cozy when it's cold out. It also has air-conditioning and a powerful fan to keep you cool in the summer months. There is a fully stocked kitchen, washer and dryer, 2 bathrooms, an open-air loft bedroom with a king bed and 55-inch flatscreen TV with Apple TV, and another open-air loft room that could sleep more if desired. The Magic house also has a large deck with outdoor table and chairs, and two chaise longue for laying out in the sun, reading, or enjoying a drink. There is also an attached fenced in yard that could be used for dogs, or just to sit on the meditation bench and take in the space.
The Jewel Room:
Climb a ladder to access this loft suite. The suite itself is made of cedar siding, treated with a zero-VOC stain. One end of the A-frame suite has an interchangeable window with three options (vinyl window, mosquito screening, or open). In the summer we typically leave the mosquito screening up, for more of an open-air experience - in the winter it is enclosed and cozy. The space also has an electric fireplace-heater to keep you warm as needed. The bed is a two-layer organic cotton and wool futon with zero fire retardants. So this is a perfect place for health conscious people or those with sensitivities to toxins. The space also has two Himalayan salt lamps, which emit negative ions and help neutralize the EMFs from electronics.
The Goddess Room:
Walk up the spiral staircase to access the queen suite, located in the upper floor of a detached guesthouse with private access. It has a dry bar space with high-quality filtered water (chlorine- and fluoride-free) and an electric water kettle and french press for tea or coffee. Breakfast table/writing desk is perfect for enjoying a drink or making progress on your creative project. There is a comfortable couch for reading or watching movies on your computer, and the room has a heater, fan, and air conditioner. Walk past the balcony with outdoor café table down the spiral staircase to access the luxury bathhouse. The bathhouse includes two private, deep soaking tubs (each suitable for a couple) with rain showers, and two toilets with bidets.
The Red Door Studio:
Formerly a recording studio, queen suite has sound-proofing panels and is located on the ground floor of a detached guesthouse with private access. It has a dry bar space with high-quality filtered water (chlorine- and fluoride-free) and an electric water kettle tea for coffee. Breakfast table/writing desk is perfect for enjoying a drink or making progress on your creative project. There is a comfortable, fold-out couch that could sleep at least one, or stay up for reading or watching movies on your computer. The room has a heater, fan, and air conditioner. This suite has a private balcony with standing bar - a perfect spot to enjoy a drink and take in the view. Easy access the luxury bathhouse. The bathhouse includes two private, deep soaking tubs (each suitable for a couple) with rain showers, and two toilets with bidets.
The Love Den:
This petite and cozy detached suite has large, nearly floor to ceiling windows peering out into a wooded wonderland. It is a tiny romantic nest perfect for couples. The space also has a heater and fan to keep you comfortable as needed.
Lotus Belle 1:
Walk down the hill to access the tent, on its own platform overlooking the forest and a year-round, spring-fed creek. The tent itself is a Lotus Belle, made mostly of canvas, and has lights, an electric heater & heavy blankets to keep you toasty and warm, and a fan to keep you cool, as needed. The bed is queen-sized, and there is a writing desk, dresser, and a tea/coffee station. The space also has two Himalayan salt lamps (although these are removed around the winter season).
Lotus Belle 2:
Similar to the description of Lotus Belle 1, but with a lounging chair instead of the writing desk. This Belle tent is closer to the Spa than Lotus Belle 1.
Lotus Belle 3:
Similar to the description of Lotus Belle 1, but this Belle tent is further down the hill, closer to the creek, and deeper in the forest.
The Bunkhouse Yurt:
Perched in a small tree enveloped clearing at the crest of a hill, this space has 4 bunk beds and sleeps a total of 8 people. This space has no electricity, but does have a propane heater and LED lanterns. It is a bit of a walk down and up[ some steep steps through the woods to get there, so good shoes and headlamps/flashlights are a must for those staying in this space.
We also have 8+ camping terraces for pitching a tent, plus additional space on the Stardeck and Hieron deck that could be used for camping.
Other things to note:
We have plenty of on-site parking behind our gate. Please note that it is a short walk down the valley to get to the spa and communal kitchen. This may not be suitable for everyone. Public transportation is very limited here, so having your own car is highly recommended. If you are interested in a stay but don't have a car, a private shuttle (e.g., to and from the train station in Colfax) may be available. Please let us know at least 7 days in advance if you would like to request special transportation arrangements.
