About Trish McCoy

My name is Trish and I have owned this home since 2005 and have updated and remodeled the inside, yet kept the country feel. This is my 2nd home which i use often, so it's not just a vacation rental. It offers the comfort of a real home.

Trish McCoy purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Trish McCoy chose Grass Valley

I love Grass Valley/Nevada City. It offers outdoor adventures, yet sophistication of music, art, and good restaurants. It also has a diversity of spiritual communities. This property is private and serene and beautiful. It's very has deer or wild turkey's roaming around. Easy access from Highway 174/Colfax Exit off Hwy 80. Rollins Lake is 3 miles away. Grass Valley is a quick 5 miles and Nevada City is a quick 6 miles. And it's all on 9 private acres.

What makes this cottage unique

It's located off a country lane and sets way back from the road. It's private, quiet and offers an abundance of nature.

Great spot not far from town

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay here for 6 weeks. The owners are super kind and easy going. It feels like you are out in the country, birds chirping and very little noise, yet it's only 10 minutes to town.

Our stay at the cottage at the country retreat was fabulous. If I had to make any complaint at all, it would be that I didn't have full control of the heat. My husband, on the other hand was very greatful for this! He is always hot (both literally and hypothetically!!😏) and I am almost always cold.

We had a wonderful time, and both Trish and Brett were very nice hosts. We intend to return as often as we can😄

We would not hesitate to recommend to others! And we would also like to add the recommendation of Apple Alley as the best place to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner! It's right around the corner😊

Thanks to Trish and Brett!

Sincerely, John and Stacy Oakley

Perfect weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

The Cottage at The Country Retreat was the perfect weekend getaway. The property was centrally located and it was easy to access Nevada City, the Yuba River and Downtown Grass Valley. We had such at great time at the cottage and exploring the town. The property is laid out very well and the neighbors staying at the Main house were barely seen and never heard. The kitchen is well equipped and the beds are very comfortable. The sitting area arranged out back was a nice touch as well. Trish happily accommodated our two dogs and they had a great time having the open space to roam. Trish was easy to contact when arriving and leaving the property. We will make sure stay at the cottage again the next time we visit Grass Valley. ~Lacy C. & Matt P.

Great stay!

  • 4 of 5

Just what we were hoping for - - the house was situated on a lovely, spacious property without being too far from Grass Valley and Nevada City. It was quiet, clean and comfortable and the beds were super cozy! Thought the price was very reasonable and Trish was great to deal with in making arrangements. Would definitely return if in the area again!

Cute, clean and comfortable cottage. Beautiful property and awesome owners!

  • 5 of 5

My experience here was great! Trish and Brett are excellent owners, addressed all my needs and were extremely friendly and accommodating. I stayed here for 2 months while in transition for work and it was perfect for my situation. Anything I needed was acquired quickly and they more than made my stay comfortable. I would suggest this to anyone who doesn't want to be right in Grass Valley but close enough to be there in 10-15 minutes. The property is beautiful, clean and comfortable. There is a second rental home right next door on the same property but never interfered with my stay.

Thanks to Trish and Brett!
