  • Nori and Jim were a great couple and it was very nice staying in their lovely Victorian home! The place was clean and we had everything we needed. We enjoyed chatting away with Jim on the front porch, it's just a shame we couldn't have stayed longer! Genni & Noel from London

  • We had a wonderful stay in Nori's Artist's Victorian Nest. Nori and her family were very hospitable. The accommodations were very spacious, clean and inviting. The house is a short walk to downtown Nevada City so it's easy browse the shops, grab a morning cup of coffee or head into town for a nice dinner. We'll be sure to come back for our next trip to town.

  • Nori was wonderful, the upstairs was beautiful and very comfortable. The neighborhood was quiet, and she was very accommodating. We had breakfast at a spot she recommended and loved it. Such a great place for such a great price.

  • My husband and I stayed at Nori's charming house in Nevada City for three nights, and it was a really wonderful experience. We were visiting the area to learn more about California gold rush history, and discovered that this house had been built in the 1880's by a gold miner! And it's part of a very beautiful and charming historical Nevada City neighborhood. We didn't get to see Nori much during our stay, but we knew that she was close at hand, if we had needed anything. I can highly recommend the Victorian Nest for your stay in the gold rush country!!

  • Nori and her family were incredibly friendly and welcoming. We truly felt comfortable around their home. The rental was beautiful, clean and spacious. It was a quick walk to downtown Nevada City yet in a quiet neighborhood. I'd highly recommend this place!

  • So you want a rating, well from 1-10, the stay for me was above 100!!! How come you ask, because they greeted me like I was a family friend my entire stay with them. Nori and her husband Jim are baby boomers like myself, so we had a great deal to share in common.
    Their home is quaint and comfortably appointed, country style bedrooms with a separate sitting area upstairs, but please don't laugh, the bathroom was my favorite area to look it. Nori is an architect, so her attention to deal really shows in her home. I'm looking forward to visiting with them in the fall if not next spring for the next Mini Cooper event in town.

  • Charming, tasteful, well edited home in quiet vintage neighborhood. Nice walk to downtown nevada city. Nori and Jim were friendly while allowing us the privacy to enjoy their sanctuary. We'll definitely make a return visit!

  • Nori and Jim were awesome! Loved the victorian apartment upstairs with its own private entrance. It was clean, very cute, and quite spacious. The surrounding neighborhood is filled with darling victorian homes and all walking distance to downtown. Would definitely recommend this location!!
