About the property

Private house

This private 1000-square-foot artist-created elegant house located in the lovely and quaint town of Nevada City, California is full of inspiring details; cozy, colors galore, with finely detailed artistic touches throughout.

We are dog friendly: two dogs allowed if smaller than 12 lbs each; one dog if larger than 12 lbs. $25 pet fee per night per dog. No other visiting dogs allowed on property, inside or out. You must inform us in your first email about your dog.

We open the second bedroom for a 3rd or 4th guest which costs $25 per night per person.

The Art Cottage is filled with contemporary art, objets d'art and a library of art books as well as art-related videos.

The yard is enclosed with a fence. A wonderful 100-year-old walnut tree shades nearly the entire yard. Sorry, we no longer have a BBQ. There is parking right in front of the entrance for one car and a few feet away on the main road for a second car or guests.

No parties, loud events, loud music. No outside noise after dark.

No smoking indoors.

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!

Warm, welcoming, spacious and colorful

  • 5 of 5

It's a very welcoming cottage with plenty of room internally. Very colorful but not overwhelming or distracting. We loved the fenced yard with Adirondack chairs - and our dog loved it too. It's a short drive to Nevada City. There is not a BBQ and the lighting is a little dark - but there are spot lights to brighten up areas. You should bring lots of spices and cooking oils if you plan to cook - there are good pots and pans, but not a lot of those cooking elements.

very "art full"! a delight to the senses.

  • 4 of 5

it is a good location. take note: red dog rd. is busy. and yet the tranquil cemetery across the street is the perfect stroll with your pooch. also, "airconditioning" is a bit of a stretch here! the fans were helpful....the deck and the backyard seating need some tidying up!!

and yes......we did enjoy the house and our day trips and the town of Nevada city. SUSHI*****

Cute cottage easy to find with convenient location and modern luxury.

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice night here. The BBQ needs to be fixed or replaced the burners dont light right from rust. Owner oversight. The yard will be nice in the summer just needs a little more clean up from the winter. The jet tub in the master is great! The art is fun and the kitchen is great! I would stay again once the BBQ is up and running.

Very Cute House

  • 5 of 5

Very cool house that was bigger than I would have thought. We just stayed as a couple, but it could have easily been comfortable with over 4 people. Thank you Connie!
