I'm retired and purchased this house to be close to my children and grandchildren. I love to travel and enjoy my time on the Russian river and the wonderful vibe of Grass Valley and Nevada City. Having the comforts of home is an important element I want my guests to have.
I've owned this house for quite some time. Historically, I use the cottage a few weeks out of the year. I decided to turn it into a vacation rental because the locations is perfect for almost all activities in the area.
I love having coffee on the porch and watching the squirrels play. I can recommend restaurants, help with reservations or even arrange a catered dinner for you.
We stayed at Fran's cottage to get a sense of the Grass Valley/Nevada City area and community. Property managers DeAnna and Billy were very accommodating and friendly. Aside from perfect winter weather in the upper 60s/low 70s - The property itself was comfortable/cozy and conveniently located within walking distance to all of downtown Grass Valley and the wonderful Empire Mine trail. Our favorite trails were along the Yuba River (south). Despite being centrally located, the local neighborhood was very quiet at night. The house has a very nice backyard we enjoyed during the days on the back porch.
Our favorite walking-distance eating spots were Diegos (dinner) and Charlie's cafe (breakfast). We were probably most impressed with the friendliness of virtually everyone we encountered, whether at the stores, restaurants, or just walking through town or on trails. Everyone says hi and smiles.
We'd recommend this property to others who want to enjoy Grass Valley as we have. I'm sure we'll be back. Bob & Bea.
Weather was stormy during our stay but the manager made us feel right at home. We had our two golden retriever's with us and they were welcome just as we were. Stay was pleasant, the home was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed during our stay. Rained the entire time we were there but because everything was so close we had no weather related problems. Only thing we would note is that the heater was very loud at night but other than that everything was great.
The cottage was perfect for 2 couples and we each had our own bathroom, which was nice. It was clean with an extremely well-stocked kitchen. Small home but had all we needed. Location was great for downtown/grocery shopping as well as quick drive to the fairgrounds for the Celtic Festival.
The house was neat and clean.. But would not stay here again. With no air conditioning the house was stifling hot. Needs, at the very least, to be equipped with better ceiling fans and extra floor fans.
We were in Grass Valley for a family wedding in late June and stayed at this listing.
The photos accurately represent the property in appearance and the amenities were appropriately described. While not fancy, it was clean and well maintained. I would definitely recommend this property. We especially liked that is was close to Safeway, downtown Grass Valley, and the freeway.
This home was very clean, had everything needed in the kitchen and a great location. Having 2 bathrooms was a plus. It's close to downtown Main St. and within walking distance to a grocery store.
