Great space!

We spent 4 nights at the house (1 couple and 4 singles) and enjoyed it very much.

The house is clean and spacious, even with people sleeping on sofas we never felt crowded.

The back yard is a huge selling point, we spent time in the pool, cooking out and enjoying the sun.

Inside, it was easy to hang together around the dining table or in the living rooms.

Also plenty of bathrooms which is often a challenge when you are a group.

We all commented on how quiet the area was too, even though there are plenty of houses around.

We spent most of our time at the restaurants and bars in Nevada City when we weren’t at the house (<10m drive). Supermarket 5 min away.

Also took advantage of swimming holes at the Yuba River 15 mins away.

The hosts are also really attentive and a pleasure to deal with. Couldn’t recommend highly enough.

Welcoming and well located!

We had a lovely stay at Yolanda’s cottage.

It worked out very well for our purposes, it was clean, well stocked, had plenty of appliances and things to do. Call

Lots of natural light and local view from the living room at Spring Hill Cottage

She had put up a Christmas tree for the kids, and there were plenty of linens to keep everyone toasty warm.

Especially appreciated were the flannel sheets.

The kids took advantage of the board games and the ping pong table in the garage.

It is centrally located and our GPS and the Hospital signs took us right to the front door.

Love to come back in the summer so we can enjoy the pool.

Thank you so much.

Fully equipped house, very well-planned, immaculate

We had this one-storey house for a very short stay, but we will try for it again on a longer visit in the future.

The host, Yolanda, was just lovely.

The house was immaculately clean, and furnished with a lot of thought for guests’ needs.

Nothing was broken, dirty, or not working.

The kitchen, dining area, and family room (with flat-screen TV/DVD) all connect, and there’s a slider out to the back yard, with gas grill and pool, and an overhang to provide shade.


The permaculture garden shows a serious love a food gardening, and we helped ourselves to a big colander of incredibly sweet and delicious cherry tomatoes. There’s good energy here!

The pool was wonderful during the 100+ heat while we were in town!!!! Your home is such a great place to stay – so quiet and comfortable.

We enjoyed a delicious zucchini and a few berries from the vines. Thank you again!

Great stay. This stay was for a work group that was installing fire retardant tanks at the local airport.

Our employees travel a lot, and in lieu of getting individual hotel rooms for each person, we like to stay at local homes close to our worksite.

The home was perfect for our needs, and the guys really enjoyed being there. Thank you so much Yolanda!

As always….

It was a wonderful stay! Such a great house and the owner leaves such nice welcoming touches!

Definately always recommend this house. Its great!!!

Great Place to Stay!

We rented the house for a small family reunion and baby shower, and it was PERFECT!

The owner made us feel welcome and right at home.

It was comfortable and worked perfectly for small family dinners.

We had a great time in the pool, and enjoyed eating the snap peas from the garden.

It was a wonderful and comfortable home, and neighborhood.

Highly recommend the home and it was a pleasure doing business with the owner – We will stay here again!

Quite comfortable and as advertised

Our family of five needed to spend several days in the GV area and this property offered an attractive alternative to being scattered among two or three hotel rooms.

The house itself was clean and all of the fixtures and appliances were in good repair, with the exception of the light over the dining table which we could never manage to turn on.

The back yard and pool have clearly had recent work; during the times we were actually at the property everyone gravitated to the back either to hang in the sun or enjoy the pool.

WiFi is available and worked well throughout the house and the back yard — an unexpected plus.

The property is very late 50’s/early 60’s in feel and finish and at some point the interior could use a coat of paint, but unless you’re planning on showing up simply to stay indoors it’s difficult to see how these could be viewed as particularly problematic — particularly given that both GV and Nevada City are close at hand.

A great place for a vacation!

My wife and I came with our boys, ages 5 and 7. This house gave us exactly what we wanted – a comfortable vacation house with access to a lot of fun activities.

Our boys spent a lot of time in the pool, and we had quick access to Empire Mine State Park, the Yuba River and the historic parts of Grass Valley and Nevada City.

The owners gave us a lot of good information about the area to make the most of our vacation. We would definitely return.

Sweet cozy home in town!

We were a big group of 11 traveling together and the house was perfect for our needs.

With plenty of sleeping space, strong AC and a large swimming pool, the house was ideal for the hot summer days.

It was only a 20 minute walk to town and it was so close to the co-op.

The owner, Yolanda, was such a doll and let us play ping pong while we waited at check-out time.

We were sure to bless the house and the land when we left. Such a sweet space.
