About Sally and Grove Nichols

We are semi retired, originally from East Coast. Adult daughters and grandchildren are all living in San Francisco. We built the guest house to accommodate their frequent visits with growing families. We are golfers, skiers, tennis players, gardeners and pet owners.

Why Sally and Grove Nichols chose North Sacramento

We have lived in the main house for 31 years. New Guest House stands on the site of the original barn and caretaker's cottage, which we tore down in 2013. Lot size is 1.3 acres, leaving a huge lawn in front of the guest house patio. Very private, cozy. Shady, large pet enclosure.

What makes this cottage unique

Private outdoor space, fenced in yard for occasional dog tenants. Dogs must be approved by owner. Plenty of parking. Cabin style interior with all new (or antique) furnishings and appliances. Dedicated wifi.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The family were great to host. They were very busy with the event of their daughter's wedding here in Sacramento but we caught glimpses of them coming and going. They were very appreciative, quiet, tidy and left the cottage in perfect shape. We'd welcome them back again any time. Sally and Grove

Absolutely Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with our small children. I can’t say how much I appreciated the owner setting out small toys for the kids to play with and bikes for them to ride. The neighborhood is lovely. We took walks and there was very little car traffic so it was safe for the kids. My kids repeatedly asked if we could move here. I wish!

My husband lost the key to the house after a long day touring the city with the kids. The kids were in meltdown tired phase and I was worried we’d be locked out for hours. The owner was sweet (and prepared) and got us a spare key in minutes even though she was out of town.

This is a gem of a place and the owners are fabulous.

Tasteful Country Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was well appointed and tastefully decorated with lots of thoughtful touches for the traveler. We immediately felt at home and enjoyed both the lovely interior and the exterior patio area. We traveled with our small dog and it was very convenient to have a large grassy area right off the patio for her to experience. The cottage is located in a very beautiful and exclusive area of Sacramento which is conveniently located. We will definitely rent this cottage again when we need to be in Sacramento for more than a day.

Delightful Cottage in Beautiful Established Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay and will definitely return when visiting Sacramento. The cottage is beautifully decorated, the bed was very comfortable and the owner has generously provided everything you will need for a pleasant stay. The neighborhood is perfect for walking and it is easy to drive to many of Sacramento's attractions from there. The owner was very gracious and accommodating ensuring that we were able to check-in early after an overnight flight and welcoming our adult children for a weekend stay.

What a charming cottage! We were a group of three adults and found we had more than enough room to feel comfortable. The cottage was beautiful and came equipped with everything we needed to have a very pleasant stay. The neighborhood is upscale, quiet, and conveniently located to restaurants, coffee, etc. Sally made it known that if we needed anything at all to simply let her know (thankfully we didn’t!:)). HIGHLY recommend this rental!
