Guestbook comments from the owner

I need to let you know that t was really hard to find a place that was suitable for all of us, quiet, comfy, nice kitchen, hi def tv, cable, wifi, enough beds,NICE POOL, and lots of space inside and out. So I pretty much though it was too good to be true when I found your ad. I have to tell you that Sierra Skies made everyone happy and we had a fun family weekend with no fighting! Dara found a quiet corner for yoga and Sandy and Andy stayed in the pool pretty much the whole time. I had cool drinks on the pool deck and worked really hard on my tan. Thank you again for a great weekend- see you next year!

Great space

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights at the house (1 couple and 4 singles) and enjoyed it very much. The house is clean and spacious, even with people sleeping on sofas we never felt crowded. The back yard is a huge selling point, we spent time in the pool, cooking out and enjoying the sun. Inside, it was easy to hang together around the dining table or in the living rooms. Also plenty of bathrooms which is often a challenge when you are a group. We all commented on how quiet the area was too, even though there are plenty of houses around.

We spent most of our time at the restaurants and bars in Nevada City when we weren't at the house (<10m drive). Supermarket 5 min away. Also took advantage of swimming holes at the Yuba River 15 mins away.

The hosts are also really attentive and a pleasure to deal with.

Couldn't recommend highly enough.

welcoming and well located

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Yolanda's cottage. It worked out very well for our purposes, it was clean, well stocked, had plenty of appliances and things to do.

She had put up a Christmas tree for the kids, and there were plenty of linens to keep everyone toasty warm. Especially appreciated were the flannel

sheets. The kids took advantage of the board games and the ping pong table in the garage. It is centrally located and our GPS and the Hospital signs

took us right to the front door. Love to come back in the summer so we can enjoy the pool.

Thank you so much,

Lynne Caunt

Fully equipped house, very well-planned, immaculate

  • 5 of 5

We had this one-storey house for a very short stay, but we will try for it again on a longer visit in the future. The host, Yolanda, was just lovely. The house was immaculately clean, and furnished with a lot of thought for guests' needs. Nothing was broken, dirty, or not working. The kitchen, dining area, and family room (with flat-screen TV/DVD) all connect, and there's a slider out to the back yard, with gas grill and pool, and an overhang to provide shade. The permaculture garden shows a serious love a food gardening, and we helped ourselves to a big colander of incredibly sweet and delicious cherry tomatoes. There's good energy here!

Thank you again for a great stay in your home! You always make it so comfortable and inviting. The pool was wonderful during the 100+ heat while we were in town!!!! Your home is such a great place to stay - so quiet and comfortable. We enjoyed a delicious zucchini and a few berries from the vines. Thank you again! The Dahlstrom Family

Great stay

  • 4 of 5

This stay was for a work group that was installing fire retardant tanks at the local airport. Our employees travel a lot, and in lieu of getting individual hotel rooms for each person, we like to stay at local homes close to our worksite. The home was perfect for our needs, and the guys really enjoyed being there. Thank you so much Yolanda!

Owner's Response: Hi Brian, Thank you for choosing Spring Hill cottage. Sorry it was the coldest rainiest week we have had all winter - the week before was sunny and the pool was 70. Then 34F nights and 55F days! Would love to have you back with warmer weather so you all could enjoy the pool. Thanks for the work you all do - fire safety will be especially important this year!
