About The Owner

I've lived in my home for 23 years and raised my two girls. I stillT love this area and would not want to live anywhere else, but I do love to travel. I especially enjoy meeting people from all over the world through my VRBO rentals which I have been doing since 2007.

The Owner purchased this studio in 1995

Why The Owner chose Gold Country / High Sierra

I chose this property because it was in the country, at the end of a road on a hill with beautiful views overlooking the Foothills. But because I had small children at the time I needed to be close to town and I was only 5 minutes from Grass Valley. I wanted to have my children grow up in a small town environment where the community was close and offered creative and educational opportunities. Being outdoors and experiencing the natural beauty around this area was top on my list too.

What makes this studio unique

The Yuba River is a spectacular natural wonder in this area along with the lakes and trails.

Stay at the country studio

  • 4 of 5

My recent stay at the country studio was charming. Although it's a close drive to town, it still has a feeling of remoteness and quiet.

Vanessa was very friendly and accommodating.

I would stay again in the future.

A beautiful place to stay for work or a retreat!

  • 5 of 5

I was fortunate to find Vanessa's studio apartment as I relocated for work and a retreat of sorts. I stayed there for a little over two months and I really enjoyed my time. The studio and the property are very nice, and Vanessa makes sure you have everything you need. Grass Valley is beautiful and the studio is within 5 minutes of downtown. Vanessa is a wonderful host, and is quick to respond if a light bulb needs to be replaced etc. She really epitomized the welcoming and friendly culture of Grass Valley. She even took me to a basketball game and had my wife and me over for hot chocolate and scones! The surrounding area is beautiful for walks or bike rides. There is a small pond and horses around, so it really makes you feel like you are on a retreat. I highly recommend this place for anyone that plans to visit Grass Valley – Vanessa, thank you for everything!

House in Escrow

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I have been in this Grass Valley studio for almost 6 months. Jessica has been very helpful when anything was needed. The studio is clean and comfortable and has all the necessities one would need. We are close to town so shopping and other activities are easy to reach. I would certainly recommend this rental to friends and family.

A Little Gem

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent the month of August at this well-equipped little gem in a quiet, peaceful country setting. Everything we could possibly need was provided, and if we had questions the owners/hosts were always available and helpful. The grounds are well maintained and we spent several evenings sitting outside watching the birds and squirrels and occasional deer. It is situated near several major highways, so getting to anyplace in northern CA is easy. It is also close to town for grocery and other shopping and we ate at several excellent restaurants. I would highly recommend staying here.
