Connie purchased this cottage in 1990
Next to paradise. Quiet, mellow town.
Art, art and more art. Beautiful setting.
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!
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!
This cottage is artsy and charming. Well enough equipped, and very clean inside. A bit of road noise when outside, but very quiet inside. Only negative would be the lighting...it's a bit dark Inside. We had a very relaxing stay.
This is our third time to stay at the Art Cottage in Nevada City. The first stay was a gift from a friend who had stayed there previously and loved it. In reality it is too much space for the two of us as it will sleep four. Still we love it for it's magical, fantasy, artistic, creative ingenuity in design and layout. For us it's living in a different world for a few days. We'd like for it to be out own house actually. All the rooms have been imaginatively created and each is unique. There is wonderful original imaginative art in every room. There is a variety of music, (CD;s) unusual and unique books about art (as well as TV) provided which is enticing and makes one want to stay on to puruse, read and listen. On top of that is a good-sized deck where one can sit and read, enjoy the greenery or have coffee, tea, breakfast, lunch, or dinner if one so desries. Kitchen is well-equpped for preparing meals and which we did part of the time.
As far as Nevada City itself, it's a charming historical tourist town at this point. We came to participate in an annual band concert invitational sponsored by the Nevada County Concert Band. Besides that, while there, we attended a l performance of "Little Shop of Horrors" that was extraordinarily well done for a little theater group in all aspects - staging, music, acting. There's an overabundance of good restaurants to choose from, a great historical museum, a variety of shops to putter around in, Pioneer Park which has a swimminng pool at one end.
We had a happy time there both in and out of the cottage.

This place was interesting and it had cool art. We stayed here for a friend's wedding. The place was clean and I liked their shampoos. Dishwasher doesn't work but we didn't need it. It is also close to the downtown area.
We enjoyed our stay. The pictures don't do it justice. The art is so impressive and the house is filled with arty details. Our dogs loved the big yard which also had lots of creative details. The only annoyance was the shooting range that is somewhere nearby. We also liked walking in the graveyard across the street. Lots of art books too. Just a wonderful time.
My fiance and myself want to thank Connie with sincerest praise and admiration for opening her beautiful Art Cottage to us. Our stay at Connie's was remarkably relaxing and thoroughly inviting. We cant wait to come back!
Thank you, David D. Wood
