About The Owner

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.

Why The Owner chose Gold Country / High Sierra

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Great location! Walking distance to downtown and three blocks from Highway 49.

Home could use some updating but was still quite pleased and satisfied.

Grass Valley stay

  • 4 of 5

Loved the house very homey feeling, great location,close to most everything we came to do. The manager Bill was very nice and helpful. Only down side the house was a little worn, the fan and light in the kitchen didn't work and a couple of other small items but the place was quiet and easy to find, we would stay here again when we come back.

Loved Fran's Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for the CA World Music Festival, and Fran's Cottage was the perfect place for us. Charming, super comfortable, lots of space (although the kitchen is narrow and crowded with more than one), very well equipped, with a nice deck for evenings after the music and breakfasts. It was also close to the fairgrounds and to grocery stores. The neighbor/caretaker was extremely friendly and eager to be of help -- he suggested a great place for our last breakfast, Tofanelli's. We're definitely looking forward to coming back!
