This sweet, cozy. standalone cottage comes fully furnished and will make you feel right at home. It has been recently remodeled and offers you a quiet, simple sanctuary, on 20 acres, for your relaxation and enjoyment. It has everything you need for a home away from home, including a lovely deck, play area for the kids and a dog run.
After renting the cottage long-term for a while, we are happy to once again open this beautiful, tranquil home and property to airbnb friends, new and old.
You can enjoy your breakfast on the east-facing deck, listening to birdsong and watching the sun come up over the meadow. Hooting owls and croaking frogs sing you to sleep at night. In the colder season, a gas fireplace creates both heat and ambiance, and fleecy sheets and down comforters tempt you to stay under the covers for just a few more minutes.
In warmer weather, 100% cotton sheets and ceiling fans create a luxurious, restful experience. Here in the valley it stays quite cool even in summertime but, if a rare heat wave should hit, we move in the mobile and very effective air conditioner.
Ten minutes from downtown Grass Valley, fifteen minutes from Nevada City and just a few miles from the Grass Valley Fairgrounds, this cottage consists of a kitchen, living room, bedroom, and full (but smallish) bathroom. The bedroom has a very comfortable queen-size bed. The couch folds out to add another queen-size mattress. Linens provided for the queen bed - please bring your own bedding if you use the fold-out couch. There is a full-sized kitchen with oven, toaster, frig, pots and pans, and dinnerware. Complimentary local coffee and a variety of teas are provided.
The Cottage is on a shared property, and the back of it is 80 feet from the main house, in which we live. It has a privacy fence in the back and is completely separate and private. There is a seasonal pond on the property that is often graced by ducks, geese, turtles and their little ones.
High-speed wireless internet connection is provided, but we do live out in the country and sometimes, through no fault of ours, the internet goes down. Let's just say it works 90% of the time, so if you need it 24/7, best to stay somewhere else. There is no TV (though you can stream) and cell phone reception can be spotty. Verizon service works best, if you stand in the right place. ;-) But regardless, please do take time away from screens to watch deer grazing, squirrels scrambling up the tall pines, and hawks flying spirals.
Only natural cleaning products are used. No smoking, no drugs; a well-behaved dog is welcome. There is a small outside dog run for your four-legged buddy, but please don't leave your dog/s here for an extended time. Easy parking below a short set of stairs. Very private. We welcome children and have a great play area with a slide, climbing wall, and swings. Our pets include one small, sweet dog and a rather timid cat.

Interakcija s gostima
We are happy to interact with guests and are available to offer suggestions about what to do in our fair town. We also respect your privacy and follow your initiative in terms how much, or how little, interaction you'd like.
Small dog run outside the house. A small washer and clothesline is available for long-term guests. Please drive 5mph down our long driveway - we share it with our neighbors, which includes pets and kids.
The space is about 400 sq ft. We recommend that 4 adults stay here only if they are very close friends, as there is not a lot of privacy. It is great for a couple and kids - or, of course, a couple or single person wanting some time out.
We are quiet-living, respectful people who expect our visitors to be the same. This is not a party house -- it is for nature lovers looking for a chance to breathe and soak in the beauty of the natural world. Therefore, no smoking or drugs, please.

I live with my husband and 13 yo son in the Sierra Foothills. I am a yoga/meditation teacher and a wedding officiant, and I love hiking, reading, nature, being with friends, and just about everything else this amazing planet has to offer. We love to travel and have enjoyed being airbnb guests as well as acting as hosts for four years.
