This unique retreat is located on 2 acres, has a year round running creek and is a relaxing getaway, yet close to downtown Grass Valley, Nevada City, the Yuba River and conveniently located on the Sierra Vintners Wine Trail. Relax in the Jacuzzi on the porch, on the swing by the creek; or take a stroll to pick some blackberries. Guests can bring well behaved dogs with owner's prior permission and we require a $20 per dog fee per visit. No smoking is allowed anywhere on the property!
This unique retreat on has a year round running creek with plenty of room for guests outside and inside the house. The inside is spacious and well lit and includes a master bedroom and bath upstairs, 2 bedrooms downstairs with a bathroom, a 1/2 bath upstairs and a beautifully updated kitchen. Relax in the Jacuzzi on the wrap around porch, on the swing by the creek; or take a stroll to pick some blackberries. Trails on the Alta Sierra preserve are within walking distance of the house. We are dog friendly, but guests need prior permission from owner before bringing dogs.
The bedrooms are spacious and the common rooms can be used for more sleeping areas, yoga or other group activities. There is one king, one full sized bed and 2 twins in the 3 bedrooms, a full size futon and a single day bed in the upstairs living area and Queen size inflatable mattress that could accommodate up to 11 people comfortably.
Guests will have access to high speed internet, but there is no telephone or TV. The owner uses the location as a personal getaway/retreat space and has personal items at the location that the should be respected as "off limits".
It is 10 minutes from downtown, yet near enough to neighbors to not feel isolated. We are within walking distance of the Alta Sierra Nature preserve and trails.
One would need a car to get to the home and the general area. We are about 1 hour from the Sacramento Airport
This is a very special place and getaway. I feel completely relaxed when I am at the house and strolling around the property.
As the owner, I would not plan on being at the location while people are using the home. I am in touch via phone and email.
The entire house, grounds, deck and garage are available for guests. Since this is our second home, we do have personal items at the house and two closet doors are labeled so that our personal items will remain unused by guests.
Interaction with guests
I am available via phone, text, or email.
Other things to note
The house is "dog-friendly" and guests may bring dogs with owner's prior permission. We request a $20 per dog fee per visit. Although the house is cleaned and vacuumed before each new guest arrives, people with severe allergies to dog hair may be affected negatively.
I expect guests to follow instructions provided to them for use of the home and appliances (AC, Washer Dryer, Spa, etc) and to generally respect the space and treat it with the utmost care so that I can continue to make it available. This is a non- smoking property. Well behaved dogs are welcome with prior permission from owner! The owner uses the location on a weekly basis as a retreat space and has personal items in closets at the location that should be respected as "off limits".
