About Debbie Fitzhugh

I was born and raised in Grass Valley. You'll find me gardening, getting my iced-mocha fix at Starbucks or playing pickleball in town!

Debbie Fitzhugh purchased this house in 2009

Why Debbie Fitzhugh chose Gold Country & High Sierra

This home was built in 1851 and was an original boarding house in Grass Valley. Over the years it evolved to a bordello and then into a multi-unit home. My husband and I purchased the property because it was a great opportunity for us to own a piece of Grass Valley history. We wanted to restore the home so that we could have an amazing place for people to stay when visiting the area.

What makes this house unique

Everything in our home is brand new and tastefully decorated, so you will feel comfortable and right at home.

Beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a wedding at the fairgrounds. The house was in a perfect location. Debbie greeted us with snacks and dinner recommendations. The house was full of charm plus modern remodel. We would stay again the next time we are in the area!

Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Perfect vacation home. The owner was very helpful and gracious.

  • 5 of 5

Property met and exceeded all expectations.We did not want to leave. I rented the house for my wedding weekend . It was the PERFECT house for such event. Lots of natural light, space and mirrors. In addition, the house has multiple lounge areas that my family and bride maids could relax in while they waited. We will be returning for girls weekend soon. I plan on recommending this home to friends and family.

Fabulous property, well located, and with really helpful owner

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for just short of a week whilst attending God Daughters wedding in the close vicinity.

Debbie is a delight and met us on arrival to ensure all was well and we were welcomed.

The house itself is very well furnished and kitted out and Debbie had also provided those few little extras (bottle of wine, biscuits and some fruit!) just to make it feel even more like a home. We lacked for nothing and were extremely comfortable in a lovely open large living area, also a great patio area and 3 very good sized bedrooms, the master suite being particularly good but not to take away from the other rooms which were more than adequate; very comfy indeed!

In fact, we really felt 'at home' staying here and would highly recommend it. Although we are unlikely to return, if the occasion should arise, we would look here first!

Thanks very much Debbie

Owner's Response: Sue and Peter, Thank you for the fantastic review. I am so happy you enjoyed our home and found it comfortable. Also, thank you for sharing all your extra goodies that you left behind (European style). You were absolutely wonderful guests. You left our home in perfect condition. It was a pleasure meeting you both too. Best regards, Debbie

Wonderful Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful downtown Grass Valley home over the Easter weekend and had a fabulous weekend retreat. The home is immaculate! Access to the outdoor picnic table and patio set on the side of the home was a nice surprise. We were able to walk into the downtown area for breakfast and shopping. We also took a short drive up to Nevada City to walk around the downtown area. The home owner was exceptionally nice and even provided bottled water and surprise treats!

Thanksgiving 2015

  • 5 of 5

This house worked perfectly for our family over Thanksgiving this year. We cooked in for most of the time and found the kitchen very well stocked. The house was quiet at night and very comfortable. The entire house was beautifully appointed and clean. The walk to downtown was only 10 minutes. We would recommend this home to anyone visiting the area with family or friends. You will not be disappointed.
