Graham and his family were great! They were very quiet our entire stay. In fact we saw their wonderful dog more than them. Their little guest house is a gem - no frills, simple, nice sleeping. It provided the perfect stepping off point for a nice long weekend away from the city up in the Sierra foothills - hikes, great meals in Nevada City, gold mine history...nice. Recommended.
We found a hidden delight when we came across this gem.
Our accommodation along with our hosts met all our needs. We were close to nature and town. We loved the set up of this studio especially the (website hidden) was a holiday within a holiday we recharged are own batteries for the final leg of our journey. We would recommend the studio and location and all it had to offer. Kitchen was well equipped with a full stove and oven and full-sized fridge. Bed was very comfortable. Remus is a friendly dog witha dozen different expressions.
Exactly what we were looking for! This place is in such a great location, and it was great to enjoy the deck, the views, and the hiking trail.
The place was very cozy. It was a little bit closer to the home than I expected and definitely not as close to down-town as I expected. It was nice and neat. We needed to pull a ladder in from the inside to be able to get to the loft but other than that, all was just fine! I would absolutely come here again!
Response from Graham:
If this review concerns you: the final photo on our listing page shows exactly how close the home is to the unit, and our map shows exactly how close we are to town.
We loved this place! So cozy, beautiful, and peaceful. We would definitely stay there again!
This place is adorable and full featured. We took a long hike along a stream starting from the property, and we were guided by our enthusiastic new best friend, Remus the dog. After that we lounged on the deck and then cooked dinner on the grill. This place was exactly what we were looking for and definitely recommended.
Graham was very friendly and helpful, and informed us about the area. The place was lovely, and we enjoyed our stay there. We would definitely recommend it as a good spot to lay one's head in Nevada City. However, if you are planning on utilizing the loft, you might want to ask Graham if better access has been provided to it (we had to use a construction ladder to get up to it as there were two of us who preferred to sleep separately!) Also, the kitchen was extremely minimally equipped, so if you are planning on cooking, you may want to bring supplies, or ask Graham ahead of time so you know what's there and what's not. Still, a lovely spot.
We had an awesome time. Graham is a fantastic host, and our stay was wonderful! The cottage was charming and perfect for us (a couple plus our dog). The house is about 5 minute drive from downtown Nevada City and it was lovely to be up on the hill with a great view + solitude while being so close to town. We found plenty of fun things to do our first two days but Graham pointed us towards some great local spots that we wouldn't have found on our own. Highly recommended and can't wait to go back!
We had a sweet stay at Graham & Amanda's cottage. Loved meeting them and their super loving dog, and taking Amanda's yoga class in town - a nuance to our trip that we might have missed if we hadn't met her. Cottage was clean, comfortable and peaceful, with easy access to town and the river. Thanks and we hope to return in the future...
