Ranch House on Creek + Storage Shed in South County

Bedrooms 1
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

Comfy, one-bedroom cottage in a country setting offers a peaceful getaway convenient to either Grass Valley/Nevada City or Auburn. Or, if you're relocating the the area, it's a perfect landing spot as you shop for permanent digs. Sleeps four.

The Ranch House offers a quiet, magical setting with several, shared acres to run about and a smaller, gated, private yard.

Comfortably sleeps four people, with a queen bed in the bedroom and a full-sized, pullout couch in the living/dining combo room.

Two storage sheds (8x8x6 and a smaller one) are offered for your bicycles or, if you're in the middle of a relocation, your worldly possessions.

Sit with a cup of locally roasted coffee while taking in the view of pastureland and tree-covered foothills. There's a good chance you'll see deer or wild turkeys, especially in the evening!

Take advantage of the sun room as protected area to read, paint, or just enjoy the view.

Put your culinary skills to work in the fully supplied kitchen, admiring the garden and sheep pasture out the window over the sink. Dine and sip around the table, either inside or on the grapevine covered patio on a warm evening.

Relax with a bath at the end of a day filled with a couple laps around the mile-loop road, marathon Frisbee sessions in a field with Fido, and wading, panning for gold or even swimming in the year-round creek.

Come breathe in some fresh, country air!

Utilities included.

The Neighborhood:

Located in South County, convenient to Grass Valley and North Auburn amenities. Private road with very little traffic (typically five cars a day, max) offers partially shaded walking, jogging, or cycling loop of about 9/10 of a mile.

Getting Around:

We're exactly 15 minutes from downtown Grass Valley, 20 minutes from downtown Nevada City, 10 minutes from North Auburn, and 5 minutes from Lake of the Pines. North- and South-bound bus stops on the 49 are a half-mile walk.

Other Things to Note:

Washer and dryer are included in the house, in a rustic, semi-outdoor room. Free WiFi. While we have a flat screen TV, there is no TV reception or cable. There is, however, an internet-enabled Blu-Ray player, ready for your discs or your Netflix or Hulu Plus account.

Great time in foothill country

  • 5 of 5

The Ranch House was all we had hoped for. It was just enough space for the two of us, yet roomy enough when our two grandsons stayed with us. The futon in the living room was perfect for them to sleep on. The kitchen was great, with all the items we needed to prepare food. The bathroom was fine, and the bed was comfortable. We loved the country atmosphere, and enjoyed learning about the sheep and llama in the adjoining pasture. The creek was a great place not only for reading and solitude, but also for our grandsons (and us) to wade in and play. If you are looking for a clean, comfortable place in the country, this is the place!

The perfect country cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at the ranch house. We stayed about a month after moving to the area from out-of-state, and it was a wonderful place to have as a home base as we got the details of our new life in order. Close to the highway and town, but super quiet and dark and peaceful at night. Great communication with the owner as we were deciding where to stay...we have an elderly cat and were told there was a wonderful window spot for her to sit and watch the goings-on in the adjoining field. There is a wonderful attention to detail throughout the ranch house: comfortable bed, lovely kitchen, and a great bathtub! We feel very lucky to have had the opportunity to stay in such a cozy and inviting place.

Quiet and restful

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed out stay at The Ranch House. The area is quiet and a great location. There were a few housekeeping items that needed attention but they did not detract from our enjoyment of staying there.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review exclamation point we had recently turned our cleaning over to a service, rather than doing it ourselves, and appreciate you pointing out the items that needed attention. We have instructed our cleaner accordingly.
