Remember when you and your friends spent the whole night talking, dancing, snacking and laughing? Mom made you all pancakes for breakfast? You can recapture that feeling of relaxed bonding with friends at Spring Hill Cottage. Grass Valley’s own pool and garden retreat location. The out door grill will be perfect for a midnight BBQ. When it gets cold you can move inside for movies, hot cocoa and a fire in the fireplace. In the morning you can make pancakes in the well appointed kitchen.

This year is a raspberry wonder for us! Everywhere you look fresh raspberries abound. The fence, the trellis, random support poles, tomato cages and the outside gate are all fair game for the raspberries that have made their home at Spring Hill Cottage. (see photos below) Fragrant and lush, our variaties are primarily thornless and range in color from golden yellow, to salmon to blushing rose. As far as flavor, they are all most delicious, fresh from the stalk, with golden sunlight warming your shoulders.
See Spring Hill Cottage garden raspberry photos below:
Favorite way to eat them? With fresh unflavored yogurt, or if I’m feeling really decadent, I go for layered greek yogurt, raspberries and whipped cream.
We invite you to reserve Spring Hill Cottage today through our VRBO SITE reservation portal
Just photos this time – so many good times this summer… these were all from an Ice Cream Sunday Party one Friday Night in July. Summer is moving to fall and the pool is now just 74 now–so I’m looking forward to next summer – and to the fall colors we hope to see from the peach and plum trees. Next summer I promise to take more photos

Spring is here. Grass Valley is catching up to the rest of California with plums in bloom and daffodils smiling. The green house is full of trays of soon to be seedlings and the temperatures are in the 50’s and 60’s. The primrose’s are bursting with color, while the first dandelions have expressed their cheerful hello’s to the front yard. We covered the pool at Spring Hill Cottage, with its solar cover to start the spring warm up, and it will be a big week in the orchard with moving compost, mulch and the last of the big fruits and small berries to fun and sunny places in the garden. We’ll be adding annual veggies and flowers in succession as they mature in the green house on Mosswood Lane. Stop by, say hi, and join us for our 1 annual plant giveaway on u our May 11 Open house! See you soon!

Spring Hill Cottage and Gardens got SNOW this week! This is a big storm that is winding its way across the country leaving a blanket of snow on mountains, deserts, lakes, rivers and forests. Here it was big enough to make it look pretty, and little enough to not have to shovel. In Grass Valley it normally melts off in a few days, so we’ve learned its ok to leave alone. I took some pictures of the new gardens and orchard with their very first snow dusting. Cottage Garden in first snow photos are kind of like a baby’s first steps I think. The parents think its wonderful and the rest of the world in just kind of indulgent. So thank you for indulging me…
