About the property

3 Bedroom 2.5 Bath 1900's Country Charmer

This farmhouse was originally homesteaded as a dairy farm in the early 1900's. More recently we raised our large family here and have used it as a hobby farm, milking one cow, growing vegetables and collecting eggs. Surrounded by a working cattle ranch, you will relax in its old country charm, yet its location is conveniently only 1.5 miles to historic downtown Grass Valley, 2 miles to the Raley's shopping center or 3 miles to the gorgeous Nevada County Fairgrounds. On site manager available to assist with any needs.

About Michael or Allison Durham

We fell in love with Grass Valley back in 2000 on an anniversary getaway. The slower paced lifestyle and fresh air are only a couple reasons why we still make Grass Valley our home. We're confident you will relax and appreciate your time here too.

Michael or Allison Durham purchased this farmhouse in 2003

Why Michael or Allison Durham chose Gold Country & High Sierra

This property's historic charm and story "wooed" us from the beginning. We have enjoyed raising 8 children in this special home, along with a multitude of chickens, pigs, a dairy cow and vegetable garden.

What makes this farmhouse unique

This home's location is unique. While here, I feel so peacefully away from the busyness of life, but in reality I am only a mile and half away from historic downtown Grass Valley and all the convenience I need.

Comfortable Ranch House

  • 5 of 5

My family & I fell in love with this Ranch house, it's very comfortable and has a at home feel to it. We all got together & had our Christmas party, plenty of room to enjoy & move about the house. Also nice to feel like your in deep country yet only moments to town , beautiful outside kid friendly. I recommend to families who want a comfortable setting.

No internet, very poor cell phone service

  • 1 of 5

While Allison was very responsive to several inquiries, this location did not fit our needs at all. We were unable to access the internet (apparently it wasn't working) and cell phone service only worked outside the home. We only stayed one night. I would only recommend this property for people who want to get away from all electronic communication.

Owner's Response: Helen, It can be difficult when things don't work out the way we intend. Once again, I do apologize that my internet was down. Some things are out of my control. was hoping that my offer to refund your stay was going to make a difference to you. I am sorry that you're still unhappy. The internet company has been out to reposition the dish and all is back working again. I'm not sure about your phone service. We have Verizon and have never had a problem.

Quaint Country Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at this quaint country home for an extended weekend while attending a wedding on Nevada City. The farmhouse was cozy, comfortable and clean. Unfortunately we were only there for a few days and it rained most of that time but we still enjoyed the countryside and rustic charm of this home. We will definitely recommend this home to others and will look it up should we be visiting this area again.

Cozy remote house

  • 5 of 5

The Allison Ranch Road house provided everything that I needed for my trip to the gGass Valley area! I was staying in the house with myself, my husband, a friend from college, a friend from work, and another friend that had a one-year-old. We were all able to split up into different areas of the house but also gather and socialize when needed. Everyone slept very well and everyone pretty much had their own bathroom. The house is very cozy and the structural design is quite neat! There was no problem with being too hot or too cold while in the house. We all wish we had had more time to spend in the house.

Clean comfortable spacious cottage

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home to attend a wedding in the area. It worked out perfectly. The home is cozy & very clean. Love the wood floors, updated bathrooms, newer carpet in bedrooms, & spacious bedrooms. Our friends came by to visit and they said it reminded them of a updated farm house from upstate New York. We highly recommend this home. It would work well for family gatherings. Great location to Grass Valley & Nevada city.

WONDERFUL Farm Life for a Relaxing Weekend Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house, the property, the area...can't say enough good things about this rental. The owners were very communicative and timely in their responses. Provided all the information we needed for check-in, check-out, etc. Plenty or room for all of us. We did not have any kids this trip but there are certainly accommodations and plenty of entertainment for the little ones. We found everything as described in the ad. We were very impressed by the number and location of electrical outlets. Everyone was able to recharge personal electronics without any "sharing". We will absolutely be back to this location!! We spent the entire weekend at the Nevada County Fairgrounds and this location was AWESOME in relation to the fairgrounds. A couple of small suggestions that might enhance the stay for others:

1] Having a motion-detector porch/walkway light would be VERY helpful. We arrived after dark and and due to the very rural nature of the area, it was VERY DARK walking to the front porch and trying to unlock the door in order to turn a light on.

2] More information on local restaurants, shops, activities, things to see, etc would have been nice rather than constantly looking on the internet for suggestions.

3] Due to the rural location, internet was very s..l..o..w... No fault of the owners, but just be aware this is not the ideal get-away location if you need to depend on internet service.

AWESOME...AWESOME...AWESOME....AWESOME!!! Thank you for a very relaxing weekend get-away location.
