About Francis and Nancy Hamilton

We have lived here for 32 years and are glad to finally have a venue for sharing our beautiful space.

The Last Resort is a stand alone, private studio apartment, fully equipped, in a creek side setting.

Why Francis and Nancy Hamilton chose Grass Valley

We have owned and operated The Last Resort for the past five years and we are delighted with the response to the space. Our goal was to provide private, all-around comfort in a naturally peaceful environment. From the response thus far, we seem to be doing that.

It's our pleasure to share what we have.

What makes this studio unique

Our area is bursting year round with music, art, live theater, gorgeous river and extensive outdoor activities. There is always something to do here. Check out the Chamber of Commerce sights for more info.

Charming and tucked away in beautiful nature

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very clean and cozy and had everything we needed for our weekend. The parking situation was easy and plenty of room for our two cars. There was a beautiful view of trees and stream outside our window and a private patio that would be perfect for a meal outside by the running stream (there was even a small grill and table with chairs out there!)

It is less than 10 minutes from historic downtown where we found some great restaurants, shops, and a candy store for the kids. The bed was comfortable and the pull out futon was perfect for my kids to sleep on. The owners were very accommodating and friendly. We will definitely be back next time we visit Grass Valley.

Lovely and Quiet Studio

  • 5 of 5

This property is perfect for one or two people. It is clean and well equipped. Make sure you have good GPS or review the directions as the entrance to the steep driveway can be easy to miss. The hosts were very helpful while maintaining privacy for their guests. Stores, coffee shops, and restaurants are within five minutes drive, but the overall atmosphere is peaceful and quiet.

clean, quiet and sweet place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I stayed for a week and it was just what I needed. Quiet, close to town and not far from alta sierra. The creek is nice to hear at night time and no distracting traffic. Loved the electrical wood heater. Would lov to stay here again. Thank you

Charming and Cozy Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at The Last Resort for 2 nights while in GV for my cousin's wedding. It is a very charming studio, very clean and well-appointed. It is very comfortable for 2 people and we enjoyed eating breakfast out on the little patio each morning. Good value and convenient location. Francis and Nancy were very nice. We would stay again.

Last Resort is our First Choice

  • 5 of 5

The Last Resort was so cozy and charming. I loved the privacy of it and the beauty. The owners were welcoming and the rental had everything we needed! We have had our parents stay at The Last Resort when they were in town too! It is a hidden gem!

A lovely little escape

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I wanted to get out of town for our anniversary but didn't want to go too far. This was a fantastic spot to relax and enjoy Grass Valley/Nevada City. The property is beautiful and heavily wooded and private. The house is the perfect size and has everything you need. It was incredibly clean, lovingly decorated, and very cozy. The owners are fantastic and gave us all the privacy we needed while still being available. We recommend this property wholeheartedly!
