Why Peter Perkins chose Nevada County
Ten years ago Peter Perkins and Catherine Ione-Perkins came upon their present day home, the Casa del Campo--a diamond in the rough located at the end of a quiet country lane near Grass Valley, California. Comprised of a main house, a guest house and a variety of out buildings, set on several acres featuring open spaces and old growth forest, the property had the bones of greatness--it just needed some loving and purposeful attention. With the creative inspiration of a brilliant local craftsman, the willingness to learn and innovate, and no small amount of artistic vision on their part, Peter and Catherine undertook the process of transforming the houses and land, room by room, yard by yard, into a unique and exciting testimony to what is possible with sincere good intention. Still a work in progress, the Casa is a vibrant canvas, constantly evolving--a spiritual place of positive energy, a fun and relaxing place to rest and plan each day.

charming and comfy casita mexicana
great location close to the empire mine state park, downtown grass valley and the nevada county fair grounds yet quiet, surrounded by delightful grounds with wonderful hosts. A stay at the casita mexicana with peter and catherine is a treat.
Private and peaceful and very clean space!
What a wonderful first experience!
I wanted a place we could stay after we moved our daughter into her new home in the area. It was a very pleasant surprise to find Casa Del Campo Casita Mexicana, so we could get a break after a long full day of moving her and her fiance' into their home. The owner's are so kind and even had a bottle of Sparkling Cider and delicious chocolates chilled in the refrigerator. I really appreciated how clean, and safe the property is. I will be back for sure! Thank you for providing the perfect space for us to relax and get a good night rest.
