Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: I have lived in this area for 30 years. Since retirement, we have stayed in many vacation rentals in fun recreational areas. My goal was to create a similar experience in my area for my guests to enjoy. I purchased this home recently and have furnished it as a home that I would not only live in but vacation in.

Why the Owner Chose Grass Valley:
We are in the beautiful Sierra foothills with lakes, hiking trails, snow, deer, turkeys. We are above the fog but below the snow (usually). It just does not get any better than this.
