Overview

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.

• Perfect for a couple's get-away

• A great place for grandparent's visiting their families in the area.

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.

We do take one-night reservations: if it's up against another reservation we will do it in advance, otherwise only 3 days in advance.

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

No smoking indoors.

Check-in no earlier than 3 pm

About Connie

Connie purchased this cottage in 1990

Why Connie chose Gold Country & High Sierra

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!

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!

Comfortable and spacious

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was very comfortable and nice inside. Owner very responsive if you have any issue arise. Air conditioning didn't seem to work well but plenty of fans in the house. Walking distance to town if you don't mind a walk. We were very comfortable during our stay.

Everything you need is provided and then some.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home. Art everywhere, but not overwhelmingly so. Lots of extras - mini speaker for phone, CDs, library, nice deck with outside seating for meals, etc. everything was clean, comfortable and miticulously maintained. Connie was immediately responsive to any queries. We definitely will return.

We enjoyed our stay very much. This is our second time staying in the house and we will be back!

  • 5 of 5

The owner is very accommodating and hospitable and made it possible for us to stay one extra night. We will be back again for another family get away. The only suggestion we have is to add 1 big pot to the kitchen supplies to make cooking a little easier.

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*****
