Area Description:
If you are familiar with the Grass Valley area, The 'Perfect Place' Retreats are Located In An Area Called 'Peardale' Off Hwy 174 Between Grass Valley & Colfax @ I-80. About a 6-8 Minutes Drive To The Historic Downtowns Of Grass Valley and Nevada City In One Direction And Exactly 8 Miles In The Other Direction Out To Colfax And The I-80 Corridor. Just 5 Minutes To Rollins Lake; Just One Of The Many Recreation Venues You'll Find In The Gorgeous Foothills of Nevada County!

Gold Country Seasons of Fun, in the Snow and the Sun

Any time of the year is a great time to visit the 'Gold Country'! However, the best times of year to visit for touring, exploring and enjoying the great outdoors are spring, summer and fall. Springtime in Gold Country is very agreeable for visitors, and can be quite colorful with the wildflowers in bloom. Summer temperatures can reach well into the high 90s.

Warm summers are great for water fun and paddling down the American River, or swimming in one of the many gorgeous Yuba River swimming holes. However, if cooler times are more appealing, you might want to delay your trip until the fall, which offers breezy days and cooler nights as the season progresses to another Nevada County beautiful Winter Season!

Make Plans To Enjoy Our Famous 'Cornish' & 'Victorian' Christmas Festivals, Starting After Thanksgiving Thru Christmas! You won't forget it!

Winters here are chilly and snowy, with some dark, stormy days. During the winter you will not see may visitors at the Highway 49 attractions, but if you are a fan of skiing, snowboarding or any other snow- or ice-related sport or entertainment, you can travel up to Calaveras and Alpine counties where the snow is perfect for all the winter sports.
