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

Great property, lovely hosts!

  • 5 of 5

The guest cottage was super comfortable & delightfully furnished. As I travel for business, I frequently use VBRO rentals. The guest cottage was outstanding. The beds were super comfortable; the space was open and tastefully decorated. Our hosts checked-in with us to assure that we had everything that we needed. This is definately a 5-star accommodation!

Beautiful

This was a beautiful little cottage tucked away in a cute neighborhood. The perfect little place for our family to stay for a few days while in Sacramento.

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was perfect - the house is amazing, clean and was stocked with everything we could possibly need. The bed was incredibly comfortable. Located in a quiet neighborhood, yet close to stores and access to freeways. A perfect gem.

Wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was so nice! It has everything you would want and more. Sally and Grove were very helpful in giving us suggestions on places to eat at and wineries due to the fires. Due to our late arrival, it was warming to arrive to the lights on and seeing a beautiful vase of flowers with a note from Sally. She also had fruit and muffins for us to have in the morning. It was nice to sleep in a comfortable bed and to have a place located in a quiet neighborhood. Bonus was the owners cats saying hello to us and coming home to wild turkeys right off the property. We would highly recommend this place. It had all the special touches you won’t get at other rentals. You won’t be disappointed!!! Since we weren’t able to see and do everything we wanted, we will definitely come back.

Has it all and then some!

  • 5 of 5

This place was my oasis and port in the storm while relocating to Sacramento to find a new apartment. It was pitch perfect and Sally and Grove, and Monty the dog, were just a pleasure to rent from. This is a hidden gem and will always be special to me as I get to know Sacramento. I highly recommend as every fixture, textile, and amenity was specially appointed. It is quiet, is tastefully appointed, and has a well equipped kitchen and laundry. Highly recommend!
