We enjoyed ourselves for a week in one of the two bedroom cabins. The grounds were maintained well and the dumpster was changed out twice while we were there. It's located away from any rental cabins and never overflowing. The mangers, Brandy and her husband Stephen bent over backwards to make sure we had a good time. One of them... More

My family and I have been coming to the lure for our yearly family "camping" trip for the last 6 years. This last visit unfortunately will be our last. Brandy and her husband are the new managers and have proven to be unfriendly, intrusive and downright rude. We we questioned repeatedly about guests despite having none. Brandy is clearly unhappy...

I stayed at the Lure resort over 4th of July weekend and it was one of the best vacations I've ever taken - beautiful scenery, gorgeous water (highly recommend tubing into Downieville), comfortable cabin (fell asleep every night listening to the rushing river), and just everything you need for a simple, restful vacation. The Lure isn't fancy but that's the... More

The location of the Lure is amazing and the rooms (really cabins) are great. The drawback for us was for $300/night we should have at least shampoo and conditioner. Nor should we have to take out the trash and wash the dishes. Downieville is a very cute and charming town and this place is no exception. The cabin was clean... More

We had a fantastic time here at the Lure Resort for a quick weekend escape. My wife and I can't thank them enough for making our trip wonderful. The resort and cabins are right alongside the N. Yuba River and how cute they are! The log furniture and bed were terrific with views that were inspiring. Sleeping to the sounds... More

Have been going to the North Fork of the Yuba River for over 40 years. We always pass up the Lure Resort on our way to the Sierra Buttes and the Lake Basin. We rented one of the new cabins. Beautiful A frame with floor to ceiling windows, deck, webber, fully stocked--I mean stocked. It had a queen size bed... More

Huge disappointment! We have stayed at The Lure in the past and had no complaints. However, this year was terrible. I did try to speak with the office when we were there...no one ever answered the doorbell. To be fair I did contact the proprietor after our stay to voice my concern and complaints over our cottage. They did not... More

First impressions: The property runs along the river, across a private bridge. The scenery is gorgeous and the sound of the river rushing by is lovely. The office is shabby and smells terrible. Across from the office there’s a beautiful, shaded grassy area with chairs looking over the river. As you drive to your cabin, you pass one unit that... More

We've been coming here for many years. Usually we spend an entire week. Privacy is good; they allow dogs for a small fee; location is very nice on the North Fork Yuba. Reasons I did not rate this a 5 star: 1) it is right across from Hwy 49, so when you are lounging at the river, cars are driving... More

We just loved it. The camping cabins are snug for 2 couples but a family of 4 it would be perfect. Affordable too! I am definately going to be coming back again. Maybe a bunch of couples to rent the entire riverfront of camping cabins. The town is so close too. Gorgeous!
