Nevada City Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Luxurious, unique accommodations for 2 to 6 in downtown Nevada City

The Two Room Inn is your own charming Victorian cottage in the heart of Nevada City, a beautiful, historically preserved gold rush era town in the Sierra foothills. Step back in time ....just two and half hours from San Francisco.

This beautiful, unique home was built in 1880 as a miner's cabin. Around the turn of the last century it was converted into a residence. At some time in its history it was a rectory and then late in the 20th century it was renovated yet again, took on its present 'castle' look, and was known as the Teddy Bear Castle due to the owners' large collection of antique teddy bears which were also the basis of the American Victorian Museum at the Miners Foundry in the 1980's. Lovingly restored to its present Victorian splendor and completed updated in 2004, it is now a perfect little Gothic Victorian gem from which to explore all that Nevada City and the environs have to offer. Walk out your front door, through the garden, and out the front gate, and you will find yourself in an amazing Victorian town, with beautiful historic homes, cafes, shops, galleries, wineries, and restaurants to suit every taste, all within a few blocks of your own beautiful cottage. Stroll around town and enjoy the ambiance, the art ( Nevada City has long been a haven for artists), the shops, and the mountain scenery. Stop for a coffee, breakfast or lunch maybe right across the street at the Broad Street Cafe, a snack at one of the yoghurt or ice cream shops, have lunch or dinner in one of the wonderful eateries in town, or come back to your own charming place and cook dinner at home. A short drive will bring you to the wonders of the Sierra foothills and the gold rush era. Beautiful scenery, pristine forests, river crossings with amazing swimming spots, hiking trails, and historic gold mining towns, some still with residents, some with only the local ghosts roaming the streets.

Spring, summer and fall are gorgeous for outdoor activities. The fall foliage is magnificent, and winter brings its own charms. Nevada City's famous Victorian Christmas, celebrated throughout the month of December, draws visitors from all over. And the occasional snowfall blankets the town and countryside in white. Skiing is only an hour or so away, up Interstate 80 towards Truckee. If you want a more temperate climate to stay in and not have to go too far to ski, Nevada City is the perfect spot. If golf is your passion, there are three championship golf courses in Grass Valley and Auburn, just a short drive from the Inn.

Nevada City, and it's close neighbor, Grass Valley, another vibrant historic town, host a wide variety of cultural activities all year long. There are music and art festivals, fairs, the Nevada City Fourth of July Parade, and the famous Nevada City Bike Race held in downtown Nevada City each year on Father's Day. The North Columbia Story Telling Festival, also held every year, has gained wide notoriety and draws folks from all over to hear some of the country's best storytellers. North Columbia, just a short drive from Nevada City, is a former gold rush town, now just a crossroads with the old two room schoolhouse converted to a community center as the venue for the festival. Check the local chamber of commerce web site for the schedules of all the events in the area.

Whether you come for two or three days or a week or more, you will never lack for things to do, and you will always have your beautiful Victorian cottage to come home to. The cottage is fully equipped with all modern amenities, updated and modernized bathrooms and a full modern kitchen, heat and air conditioning, flat screen TV, WiFi, gas grill, washer/dryer, and two off-street parking spaces. But it also has all original stained glass windows imported from England, gorgeous redwood and elm interior, a fireplace built with cobblestones from Old San Francisco, a front deck surrounded by gardens, a private back yard, and a lovely balcony off the bedroom upstairs, with views down Broad Street - the perfect spot from which to watch the 4th of July parade, the Father's Day bike race, or just the comings and goings of Nevada City. The house is situated at the very edge of the commercial district, and so in the quiet part of town, but steps away from anything you might want to do in the village itself.

Come experience the unique charms of this lovely home and its wonderful surroundings.

About Marney Craig

I have owned vacation rental properties in Hanalei and Princeville on the island of Kauai since 2000 (see my VRBO listing 10087 for Maluhia Hanalei)and so have years of experience creating wonderful places for travelers to stay, and providing them with all the amenities and special touches that help to create a memorable vacation.

Marney Craig purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Marney Craig chose Nevada City

I have always loved visiting Nevada City and spending time both in town and in the beautiful natural surroundings of the Sierra foothills. And for many years I have been aware of this gorgeous little Victorian cottage in the heart of this very special town. When I recently had the opportunity to buy it, I did not hesitate for a moment. I knew that not only would I love being able to stay here myself, but that I could make it available to travelers from all over, and allow others to experience this unique home in this wonderful setting.

What makes this cottage unique

This is an amazing truly unique Victorian home right In The heart of a perfectly preserved gold rush town. It is on the main street of town, at the very edge of the commercial district, so guests can walk out the front door, through the garden, and out the gate into the center of this wonderful town with its array of restaurants, cafes, shops, galleries, and many special events throughout the year. The house itself is charming, beautiful, luxuriously furnished and outfitted, and maybe the most unusual place you have stayed. Step back in time just two and a half hours from San Francisco.

Wonderful getaway in this unique, well-appointed property in the heart of my favorite Nocal town

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I loved our week spent in this gorgeous, perfectly outfitted, super clean and comfortable home. It was stocked with everything we needed from washer and dryer, to truly great books and movies, and exceptionally comfortable bed, living room and patio furniture all in terrific shape. (And best of all, there was no old funky old food from previous guests, hooray.) The owner was really helpful and responsive when we had a question while we were there. It's wonderful to be able to walk to all the nearby yummy restaurants (South Pine Cafe, and Ikes = my favorites) as well as the colorful street fair held right out front on Wednesday nights in July. There's a little bit of street sweeping noise at 6am most weekdays, but it can be outwitted by turning on the air conditioner/fan. I can't recommend Two Room Inn highly enough and hope I get to return one day!

WOW rental in downtown Nevada City

  • 5 of 5
I am ashamed to say that it has been a year since I spent two nights here with my girlfriends! In three weeks, I am doing flowers for a wedding in town, and the bride and groom are staying here. So, I had to get my act together and write a long overdue review. Attention to detail is what comes to mind about this beautiful house. The owner has taken great pains to create such a welcoming ambiance. From the dishes, glassware, towels, linens....everything new and matching and well thought out. I am a floral designer, so I appreciate all the little touches and details that make this place so special. The house itself is stunning, with the stained glass windows, architecture, woodwork, etc. Having visited Nevada City for the past 30 years, I have stayed in many lovely places. This is my favorite by far! Being in the heart of downtown is such a plus, and congregating in the gorgeous backyard at the end of the day to enjoy a nice barbeque dinner was great. As other vacationers have said, pictures do not do this house justice. The curtained off space adjacent to the living room is delightful, and a nice private little area to sleep two people. we had four adults and two kids, and the house was spacious and able to accommodate all of us in comfort and style. Sitting at the table in the "parlor" playing games at night made us feel like we were living in a by-gone era (and that was a good thing). What a relaxing retreat we ladies had. Five stars all around!

great place! so perfect...

  • 5 of 5
ok, i have a slight thing for architecture i must admit. most times places that have such style are absolutely dreadful. this place blew me away. yes, its got a lot of quirky character but the place is chock full of charm...in a good way. the leaded glass windows are stunning, there is plenty of space to spread out and the porch area in front as well as off upstairs bedroom is perfect for relaxing and painting or drinking our morning coffee. the location is prime. we love downtown location although some might think its a little noisy in the evenings with people and cars coming and going, but hey its downtown centrally located with no need to ever get back into your car once you arrive. we walk to everything so the location is great. thank you marney for you wonderful vacation getway!

A dream weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5
This place was recommended by a friend and I just so happen to be in need of a Valentine's weekend getaway. This place was far enough away from the city, priced affordably, and had this cozy charm about it. This house is so much larger than it appears. It can easily accommodate a family of 6-8 comfortably. The location was also fantastic, which is located at the top of a bustling little downtown with dozens of restaurants, coffee shops, and novelty stores. I only times I drove my car were when I checked in and checked out. Bare in mind that the house itself is an attraction so expect to be spending quite a bit of time in it, which isn't a bad thing. The pictures do not do this house justice. Has to be seen to be truly appreciated. I will be coming back.
