  • This was the perfect place for us. We were in Chico for a family reunion of sorts and it was nice to have a place that was quiet at the end of the day. Everything that you might want was provided. We met John and Phyllis when we checked in and when we needed something they were there.

    I think anyone staying here would enjoy their stay.

  • Phyllis and John were wonderful hosts. Their cottage was clean, spacious and very comfortable, perfect for our stay visiting our son in Chico. We will definitely stay again.

  • John & Phyllis were wonderful, respectful and helpful hosts. Their cottage is beautifully and tastefully decorated with very spacious comfortable rooms. It was beyond well equipped in the kitchen and the luxury bathroom had quality toiletries. Phyllis even let my puppies wander in their lush, incredible garden out back. We ALL had a relaxing, restful, lovely stay. Hoping to make a return visit .

  • Lovely spacious place, close to Chico, but far enough to save you from having to sleep through a party. Lush gardens and friendly amicable hosts. I plan on staying again when I come back in the fall.

  • We absolutely loved staying in this cute, private, little cottage that was close to town, but on a private road and very quiet. The cottage and house border an orchard and somewhere further down the road was a rooster but he was far enough away that his crowing in the morning was more charming than annoying. The cottage is semi-close to a lot of houses occupied by students, however you would never know. It is pastoral, quiet and serene. Note that we were there over the holidays, so I can't vouch for the noise level during the week when an almond processing plant across the way might be in operation.

    The cottage is immaculate and tastefully furnished and has wifi. Everything that you might want for your stay is already there. Kitchen with pots, pans, silverware, dishes, etc. The shower has great water pressure. Did I mention that the cottage is spotless?

    There is only one bathroom, so this listing might not be as appropriate for a family, however for our husband and I it was perfect.

    We stayed at the cottage over Memorial Day weekend, and our hosts, John and Phyllis, were away on their own vacation. We used email to go through things. Phyllis was very good about answering my questions, giving me a heads up about when they were leaving and where everything was.

    After a day of fun in the surrounding area, as we drove through town and past a few chain hotels, all I could think of was how grateful I was that we were returning home to our cute little cottage and not one of the chains. Two thumbs up. We would definitely stay there again.

  • John and Phyllis are very warm and welcoming hosts. The cottage is very comfortable and exceptionally well appointed. There are many extras: Phyllis's lovely fresh flowers; fresh fruit, yogurt and coffee makings, high quality soaps, shampoo and lotions.

    We love the location. It is in a quiet area, close enough to downtown- but away from the hustle & bustle of being right downtown. We may not be getting to Chico often now that our youngest has graduated, but we would stay at this lovely cottage again in a heartbeat.

  • This was a great property. It was clean, comfortable, spacious, and had everything we needed and more (like creamer for our coffee!). It is really close to downtown Chico so everything was accessible, but at the same time the street is private so we never heard or saw any college kid antics. Very tranquil property. We hope to stay again.

  • Great place to stay! John and Phyllis are wonderful and welcoming hosts. The cottage was nice and cozy on a rare colder weekend in Chico. I highly recommend staying here. Enjoyed the beautiful garden and relaxing atmosphere. The bed was super comfortable, too. I hope to come back here on my next visit.

  • Great cottage...spotless...spacious and comfortable tucked away on a very quiet lane near CSU Chico and downtown. John and Phyllis were super hospitable and friendly and their dog Cookie is terrific. This was my first Airbnb experience and it could not have been better. Highly recommend this cottage to anyone visiting Chico.
