About Diane Stevenson
I am a Cath Lab and ICU RN. Due to life circumstance, began vacation renting 2 of my homes a few years ago and find that I love it. It is a pleasure to share my unique homes. Thanks to all that come to them. I hope that all my guests enjoy them as much as I have.
Diane Stevenson purchased this House in 1989
Why Diane Stevenson chose Grass Valley
This was our family home. My husband and I built it. It is not a 'kit'. He designed it and with a good bit of blood, sweat and tears, it was built with the care of the quality craftsman that he is. We raised our son here. He grew up playing in the creek and hiking in the woods. He is now 28 and with the economy the way it is, renting this home to nice folks helps us finance his education. It is a lovely home in a lovely location. We hope you enjoy staying in it as much as we enjoyed living in it for all those years. Diane Foley Stevenson (OWNER)
What makes this House unique
I love the creek and hiking in the woods. Follow the trail across the creek and up to the top of the property where you will enjoy a spectacular sunset. Walking into the house is like something magical. It really is a unique and special place to spend some well-deserved downtime.

Grass Valley Log Home
We had a relaxing time at this wonderful house. Large but still quaint. Plenty of room for 6 people and three dogs. We had everything that we needed and more. Loved the creek and rope swing right behind the house.
Had a nice stay was at the house for a week did not have an issues with any one around the area. pretty much quite outside of the cars driving by on the road but was a great getaway!
OK but pricey
Ad on charges were not disclosed prior to booking.
Actually, all fees are disclosed before the guest books. This group was actually a group of 4 but she had reserved the house for 3. I charge a nominal $20/person extra guest fee for groups greater than 2. When she reserved the house she inputted 3 instead of her actual 4. There would not have been an extra fee after booking had this guest put in the actual number of her group.
Great family retreat!
Our extended family of 10 (7 adults and 3 kids) had a wonderful time here! As lovely as the log home is, hands down the best feature is the beautiful creek and swimming hole right on the property. To our three 6 year-olds it might as well have been Disneyland, and even Grandma was giving the rope swing a try. Big yard overlooking the creek, with hammocks and plenty of space for yard games (we brought and set up corn hole) as well as a hot tub. The kitchen is very well stocked with everything you might need, and the kids loved having the downstairs game room as their own special hangout. Plenty of games, books, and movies on hand as well. The whole family was very happy with our choice of this property for our family retreat!
Spacious, clean cabin
We really enjoyed our stay and would stay again. The cabin was much more spacious and modern than expected from the pictures, although with plenty of mountain charm. Very clean, everything in working order. Plenty of space, great kitchen. You can tell the host wants her guests to be happy and comfortable. Great outdoor seating as well. We loved exploring Grass Valley and Nevada City.
We didn't feel that the neighbors were too close. I do agree with others that charging for a 3rd adult is strange and a bit off putting for a 3 bedroom home but the base price is pretty reasonable and the quality is high. I would recommend staying here.
It was very comfortable place to stay.
Clean, plenty of sleeping places for three families, nine people, loved the creek, rec
room had many games, outdoors was great for entertaining, just a great home away from home. The owner was wonderful to work with and wanted us to enjoy our stay. Our family highly recommends this place.
