About Kelly Hock

I love my family, I love my town and I love life! I love to help people yet give them space. I enjoy coffee and a good book. My family and I live in the main house so you can get ahold of me for anything you need. I have two boys and two dogs (golden retriever & chocolate lab). All are very friendly to people.

Kelly Hock purchased this cottage in 2013

I cannot tell you how amazing this property is. It truly is an oasis away from the busy life.

What makes this cottage unique

This house shares a courtyard with the main house (where my family and I live) so anything you need is just a few steps away!

Nice cottage, good location!

  • 4 of 5

We were in town for a wedding in Durham and the cottage was a great location for our event! Rooms are very spacious and we were glad to have a little fridge in the unit! The cottage is a little closer to the main house than we realized but as we were out and about a lot it wasn't an issue for us.

Beautiful Oasis

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic place for a quick college tour trip! Clean, comfortable, easy. Met with one of the owners and he was very personable. If our son chooses Chico State, we'll be back.

Quiet place to rest up

  • 4 of 5

I was in town to visit friends and family. It is in a very nice neighborhood surrounding a private country club. The rental itself has nice sized bedrooms. I arrived during a heat wave so didn't spend much time outside. Was very thankful it had central air and kept the place cool. The owners were friendly and all questions prior to trip were answered promptly.

I have read other reviews and the subject of privacy came up. You are renting a pool house that sits across the patio from main residence. It was summertime and the kids were out of school so looking out my slider I could see into the main residence and they me. I had no issue with it. They seemed like nice people and it wasn't a big deal and if I wanted more privacy all I had to do is pull the curtains. It was a perfect place for me to rest up between my visits. I only gave it 4 stars because I'm old school and a perfect score is hard to get..

Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time. Everything was clean and nicely decorated. There is a short drive to downtown Chico, where our son will be attending in the fall, so we will probably be staying again in the future! :) Thank you!
