Description

The Space

[Note: if you are new to Airbnb, please post a profile with information about yourself and a photo of yourself and let us know the reason for your visit when you request a stay with us.] We have a large home in the small Gold Rush town of Grass Valley in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, between Sacramento and Truckee/Lake Tahoe. Our large guest room is off our large studio space and has its own large bathroom. It has a Keurig machine, tea & coffee, filtered water, microwave. We share our large, well-equipped vegetarian kitchen and our living room. We have two cats (but they are rarely allowed on the floor of the house that has the guest rooms). The home, large front porch, and backyard are attractive and comfortable places to relax. Our porch overlooks the town and is especially gorgeous at sunset. We are cyclists and hikers who know the nearby roads and trails. Our home is in walking distance of downtown Grass Valley and Empire Mine State Park and just up the street from the town's best coffee house and restaurant. This room has a queen-size bed and wireless Internet. We're willing to accommodate larger groups by arrangement, including making other rooms available when asked (for which we will make a "special offer" through Airbnb). Convenient for local festivals (Bluegrass, Celtic, Music in the Mountains, World Music Festival, Center for the Arts, Wild and Scenic Film Festival), wine tasting, Gold Rush history, hiking and biking, the Tour of Nevada City, the College of Ayurveda, Nevada City, Empire Mine State Historic Park, Cornish Christmas, Victorian Christmas, the Yuba River, and the entire northern California Gold Country. We are walking distance to restaurants, art, shopping, clubs, and theater. We are 5 minutes from Nevada City and all its attractions. Our favorite coffee shop is 2 blocks away. The woods for running, hiking, biking are 3 blocks in the other direction. Though we don't provide breakfast, your room has a Keurig machine with a selection of teas, coffees, condiments, but feel free to use our kitchen too. Please, no perfumes, colognes, or other heavily scented products.

We also have a photo studio that can be make available by arrangement. Guests enter through a semi-private side entrance. Our home has stairs and is not wheelchair accessible.

Our area is varied and interesting, some old and some new. We're walking distance to the town, to the woods, to Empire Mine, and to a great coffee shop/restaurant that includes live music every weekend morning.

Walking and biking are easy. The bus runs down our street with a stop one house away. Plenty of parking on the street. Nevada City is a 5-minute drive.

The guest room is downstairs; it's cool in summer. It's off a large photo studio. Travel between the guest room and the main part of the house requires climbing and descending stairs.

Keurig machine, filtered water, microwave, condiments, snacks at the room. Full vegetarian kitchen and eating area upstairs. Living room with a view. Semi-private entrance.

We love to get to know our guests and learn about them and their homes as well as share and learn more about our area. But we also give our guests a private space and complete control of their experience here.

Our neighborhood is perfect for walking, both around the neighborhood and to nearby locations. We're a few blocks from the best coffee shop, the best Chilean restaurant, and the best gourmet market in the area. We're also blocks away from Empire Mine and the woods for hiking and biking.

Walking is fast and easy to just about anywhere in Grass Valley. Public transit bus runs down our street. We're a minute from the freeway with 5-minute access to Nevada City. Getting here from Sacramento International Airport, check our info page on the web for the best alt route to avoid traffic.

Louise is a massage therapist and craniosacral practitioner as well as an artist. For a tour of her work, just ask. She is typically booked for bodywork a few weeks out. Ed is a photographer and has a fully equipped photo studio right outside the guest room. It can be rented or booked for photo shoots separately.

Guest Access

The guest entrance is on the side of the house, leading to a waiting room for Louise's practice. From there, the Studio door leads down rather steep stairs to the studio level. The guest room is off the main photographic studio. Its large, full bathroom (shower and bath) is there too. Keurig machine, filtered water, microwave, condiments, snacks at the room. Full vegetarian kitchen and eating area upstairs. Living room with a view.
