About Connie

Owner artist of The Art Cottage

Connie purchased this cottage in 1990

Why Connie chose Nevada City

Next to paradise. Quiet, mellow town.

What makes this cottage unique

Art, art and more art. Beautiful setting.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed the art, colors, textures, design and details. Everywhere. Ovbiously completing the cottage was a long project filled with love and excitement. It has so many aspects with comfort and convenience. After our stay, we'll dread drab motels.

We had a great time visiting our son. Did a whitewater raft trip and the American River and local site seeing, but many more to see when we return. Love Nevada City and the area. Glad we found you on VRBO!

Spacious, clean and super convieient

  • 5 of 5

Loved our night at the Art Cottage. As soon as we walked in my wife and I both said we wished we had planned on staying longer. LOTS of room, totally updated and really comfortable.

We'll be back in Nevada City again same time next year and plan on coming back here.

THANKS!

Birthday weekend a blast!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Nevada City and Connie's artist cottage is the perfect place to stay and enjoy this quaint, friendly and lovely town! We loved how each room is decorated - nothing ordinary at all! The kitchen is roomy and had everything we needed to cook the fresh foods from the farmer's market, enjoy the wine and cheese while enjoying jazz on the Bose. Thank you, Connie! We had an awesome time!

Still lovely in 2017

  • 5 of 5

We visited in 2015 and we loved the look and feel of the house. In 2017 we were so happy to see the trees and plants so well taken care of and the home still charming. Kudos to this property owner.

Great home and lovely owner

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely, eclectic and creative little home in Nevada City. We only stayed overnight, but had everything we needed. Connie was a great host, and was really understanding and fair when our dog chewed a bit of doorframe. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit!
