We are confident you will enjoy the comfort & ambience of our lovely Victorian home on Historic Kate Hayes St.

We have strived to maintain a comfortable environment for our guests with 4 bedrooms: 1 large Master with Cal King Bed, 1 Queen bedroom & 2 bedrooms with 2 twins each with superior quality linens, towels & amenities provided; formal dining room & breakfast nook; comfortable living room with satelite TV & video cassette/DVD player with video library; free local phone calls & free wireless hi-speed internet. Just bring your clothes & personal items & enjoy your stay. WHY STAY IN 2-4 B & B/HOTEL ROOMS WHEN YOU CAN RENT OUR ENTIRE HOME FOR LESS THAN 1 OR 2 ROOMS?????????

There are numerous supermarkets nearby if you wish to utilize our gourmet equipped kitchen &/or BBQ areas to prepare your own meals to enjoy in the formal dining room or breakfast nook. Professional Waffle & Ice Cream makers are available for your enjoyment.

Bring your favorite recipes or use one of ours, you'll love 'em & we've got a bunch with all the 'how to' info necessary. We have both gas & charcoal BBQs & outdoor seating/dining facilities in our lovely patio/gazebo garden area.

It's hard to know where to start when describing the almost endless activities available in Grass Valley/Nevada City & the surrounding area. We are approximately 1 hour drive to Sacramento or Lake Tahoe. Numerous excellent lakes, rivers & streams within minutes, wineries/wine tasting, museums, antique shops & specialty shops galore, walking tours, Empire Mine State Park (just up the street!), County fairgrounds activities, fly fishing, excellent local restaurants, etc., etc., etc.

Drive up Hwy 49 thru Downieville & Sierra City & experience the beauty of the fall colors that rival (many say surpass!!!) the northeastern United States in their splendor. Additionally, there are more great restaurants & excellent picnic sites along the streams & rivers that flow alongside the highway.

Even snow play activities are nearby in the winter along with skiing less than an hour away. We could go on & on, but suggest checking out OUR WEBSITE (see below) &/or contacting Grass Valley &/or Nevada City Chamber of Commerce (click the Links on our website) for an even more complete list of events & dates. COME STAY & PLAY!!!!

                        The house is lovely and well kept. The owners were absolutely wonderful to work with. Kate's Place is within walking distance or a short drive to many great places in Gold County. Don't miss Diego's restaurant and the mine museum and tour. If you love Victorians this is the place for you. It has been decorated with an eye to the period and you will have a great time seeing all the things that make this a unique home.

                        Recommended for: Families with teenagers, age 55+, tourists without a car, girls getaway, sightseeing, romantic getaway, pet owners.

                        Our stay at Kate's Place could not have been more comfortable. The home is decorated beautifully. There was plenty of room for 6 adults and one teenager to gather for our family getaway. The owners have thought of so many small details throughout the house with the comfort of renters in mind. Owners were very approachable and accommodating to our needs. We were delighted with the the whole experience.

                        We stayed at Kate's Place recently in October and we could not have been happier with the accommodations. The home retains all the Victorian charm but with modern amenities. All six of us (4 adults and 2 children) were very comfortable - living room is spacious and enough bedrooms for everyone to have a bed (with more to spare). The location couldn't be beat either. Walking distance to downtown as well as the local park/playground for the kids. Will definitely stay at Kate's place again if ever in the area.

                        My family and I spent a weekend at this house for a family reunion. The house is very cozy and the owners have really paid attention to detail to make sure our stay was as comfortable as possible. Everything you would need is already at the house - just bring yourself and clothes. And, the location couldn't be beat. We were able to walk right into the downtown area to shop and eat at many of the fine restaurants Grass Valley has to offer. We've stayed in many VRBO houses over the years and this is one of my faves!

There is many things to do in this area to keep everyone busy. We will be back for a third time next summer.

                        Kate's Place is located in a quiet tree lined residential area within easy walking distance to the town of Grass Valley. The home, which sits on a quiet tree lined residential street, was the perfect place to relax and unwind. In the evenings, my friends of thirty years chatted and laughed while drinking hot chocolate in the large living room. The furnishings are a delightful mix of folk art and generated lots of amusement and discussion. There are also plenty of nooks to have quiet time for yourself. The well stocked kitchen and pantry also came in handy when one had the munchies. Do yourself a favor and stay here! We are looking forward to a return soon.

                        Our daughter was getting married in Grass Valley, so Kate's Place was our home base for our two other children and their spouses. It was a charming place full of antiques and life. We appreciated the air conditioning, the outdoor space and the fully functional kitchen. The location was convenient and the neighborhood was friendly and quiet.

                        This is a really delightful, clean, and quiet place to stay, filled with Victorian touches and just about any convenience you can name. The owner was very friendly and helpful in getting us settled. All of the beds are comfortable, and the backyard was perfect for our family and friends barbecues - cosy, private, plenty of space, easy access, and even a couple of different barbecues to choose from. It's an easy walk to the grocery store, coffee shop, or downtown. And if you forgot something, there are plenty of "honor bar" items available such as water, beer, wine, etc. The house is very close to Empire Mine State Park, and the Italian food at Cirino's Main Street is absolutely great. Highly recommended.

                        We recently spent the Christmas and New Year's holidays at Kate's Place. What a WONDERFUL experience! Kate's Place is immaculately clean, perfectly charming, conveniently located, and equipped for a family to genuinely feel at home. I have never imagined spending Christmas day in a rental with my family, but Kate's Place was so cozy, lovely, and delightful - it felt like home! I would happily spend Christmas day - or any day - or every day there! We have frequently traveled and stayed in places that were sold as having a "fully equipped kitchen." Kate's Place is the only vacation rental that lives up to that advertisement. The kitchen is generously equipped. I was able to cook and serve everything I would have in my own home. I would HIGHLY recommend Kate's Place to anyone who is looking for a comfortable, clean, charming, and convenient vacation rental.

                      About the owner: My wife & I are native Californians, born & raised in the Central Valley & Bay Area, respectively. Our daughter & son-in-law moved to the Grass Valley area a few years ago & when visiting we fell in love with the area also. We now have our youngest grandson, born in May, 2009, & our newest granddaughter, born in May, 2011, to bring us here for numerous visits. We purchased our vacation home on Kate Hayes St. in April, 2008 & enjoyed so much furnishing & decorating it that friends suggested we share it as a vacation rental with others. We were reluctant at first but found that it has worked out so well & folks that have stayed have been so nice & appreciative of the home and all the surrounding area has to offer.

                      Why the Owner Chose Grass Valley:
                      There are so many activities & fun things to do in & around the beautiful Grass Valley/Nevada City area that it would be impossible to list them all. The Cornish & Victorian Christmas, Car shows, farmers markets, theatre, rivers, lakes, excellent wineries, Empire Mine State Park, etc., etc., etc. We originally purchased the home for our own enjoyment & for a place to 'getaway' & enjoy family & our Grandson, Trye, born May, 2009 & our newest Granddaughter, Kyla, born May 2011. We've also found that we really enjoy sharing our home with others.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Our Victorian home is exceptionally comfortable, especially considering its' age. Built in 1891, it has been meticulously restored & we have decorated & furnished our home to help preserve its' unique heritage & to make it just as comfortable for our guests. We especially enjoy sitting out on the front porch & chatting with neighbors as they walk by on our narrow little lane, Kate Hayes St., named after the famous Irish Opera singer, Catherine Hayes, who was born in Limerick, Ireland in 1818 & enjoyed an illustrious career singing & performing around the world & in the Gold Country & particularly in the Grass Valley/Nevada City area. So, as you can tell it was a 'no-brainer' to name our home 'Kate's Place'!!!!
