Charming and Cozy Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at The Last Resort for 2 nights while in GV for my cousin's wedding. It is a very charming studio, very clean and well-appointed. It is very comfortable for 2 people and we enjoyed eating breakfast out on the little patio each morning. Good value and convenient location. Francis and Nancy were very nice. We would stay again.

Last Resort is our First Choice

  • 5 of 5

The Last Resort was so cozy and charming. I loved the privacy of it and the beauty. The owners were welcoming and the rental had everything we needed! We have had our parents stay at The Last Resort when they were in town too! It is a hidden gem!

A lovely little escape

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I wanted to get out of town for our anniversary but didn't want to go too far. This was a fantastic spot to relax and enjoy Grass Valley/Nevada City. The property is beautiful and heavily wooded and private. The house is the perfect size and has everything you need. It was incredibly clean, lovingly decorated, and very cozy. The owners are fantastic and gave us all the privacy we needed while still being available. We recommend this property wholeheartedly!

Cute and cost effective place to stay in Grass Valley

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I needed a last minute place to stay in GV while we finish up plans to buy a house. Luckily Francis and Nancy's studio was still available. What a great find. I do a lot of VRBO rentals and the things I appreciate are exactly what Francis and Nancy provided: 1) was immaculate. 2) good condition...this unit was recently renovated and in great shape 3) attention to's the little things like having things labelled, having half and half in the fridge and coffee options on the counter and 4) quiet and privacy. Put that all together with a great rental rate and what more could you want. I would rent again in a second :-)

I was very pleased with this well equipped studio. The peace is wonderful and you can hear the gently babbling creek just a few yards from the patio. It's well situated for the local towns and attractions. Your hosts are very discrete. In thirteen days they never once intruded. A perfect studio in a perfect location.

Our first resort when staying in Grass Valley!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the studio! Francis and Nancy were fastidious and attentive hosts and very respectful of our privacy. The studio is clean and very nicely decorated with attention to detail. We loved being surrounded by all the trees and golden silence. We loved the gurgling creek sounds. There's WiFi and good TV cable channels and even a landline for visitors use which was thoughtful because we did not have cell phone reception in the studio. We took advantage of the brochures and flyers provided by Nancy and Francis for local hikes and places to eat. There is a good sized grocery store conveniently located by highway going to the studio. We hated to leave when the time came. We will definitely be returning for another visit!
