Are you planning a weekend away with friends or family? Then you've found the perfect place! If you have an upcoming wedding in 2018, you may want to think about booking our entire home for the wedding party or visiting family. Quilting and scrapping groups are always welcome. We are about two miles from The Empire State Mine, or 1.3 miles from The Nevada County Fairgrounds. We cater to families, & large groups and are an excellent value compared to a hotel or B & B... I forgot to mention, we're located in the Historic Downtown district! For a small event fee, we allow intimate gatherings up to 25 guests. A Victorian Rose is a unique and memorable experience!

A Victorian Rose is a luxury four/five bedroom, two bath home with a hot tub in the Historic Downtown district of Grass Valley. It is a completely restored Victorian and perfect for a romantic getaway weekend, a wedding party, a family vacation, a scrapping/quilting weekend, a memorial celebration or just a fun retreat for you and your friends! Why stay at a hotel, motel or bed and breakfast when you can rent our entire Victorian for less and stay in style?

Remember to read our on-line reviews and check out our official website for more photos and information! (see below)

We also have an inviting lovely parlor, a modern and fully equipped kitchen, a sunny breakfast nook, a formal dining room, a comfortable family room, a laundry room with washer/dryer & ironing board & iron, a Secret Kid's Room, a fun recreation room or 'The Man Cave' with Foosball, poker table, TV, VCR/DVD etc, Fun for everyone! We have quilting and scrap-booking groups that arrange their tables and use this room as a workshop. We also have a warm hot tub, charcoal BBQ and patio tables, and Complimentary WiFi. Quality linens and towels are provided.

In the Sierra Foothills, in the Historic Downtown District of Grass Valley and centralized to many great outdoor and indoor activities and only three miles from Nevada City. We are in the heart of the Gold Country about one hour from Sacramento or Lake Tahoe, right off Hwy 49 in the Downtown District of Grass Valley.

Nearby are museums, golfing and biking, cultural events, County Fairground activities, antiquing and specialty shopping, wine tasting, great theater, art galleries, excellent dining, musical entertainment, movie theater, Grass Valley and Nevada City walking tours, The Empire Mine State Park, swimming and even playing in the snow or skiing aren't too far away! The list is endless. I highly recommend checking out the Grass Valley Chamber of Commerce before or during your stay. Don't just stay, play!!!

There are numerous fine restaurants in both Grass Valley and Nevada City, not to forget the fast food places and of course you must try a pastie, a Cornish meal the miners used to bring into the mines. Safeway is nearby and makes it easy to purchase foods to cook up something homemade in our well-equipped and modern kitchen.

Spa treatments can be arranged at a discount.

Set up a wonderful six hour Wine Tour with a gourmet lunch!(8 people min/tour)

We can help make arrangements for special occasions too, just ask.

About Catherine

We love Grass Valley and especially the downtown area. Owning a Victorian is a dream come true! Whenever we get a chance, our family vacations at A Victorian Rose. We enjoy sharing it's magic with others! People have taken their vows of marriage and honeymooned in our beautiful home.

Catherine purchased this house in 2005

Why Catherine chose Grass Valley

Grass Valley is a relaxing place compared to our home in the Bay Area. We love the trees, fresh air and the many indoor and outdoor activities in the area. One of our favorite things about A Victorian Rose is its walking proximity to the downtown wineries, restaurants and specialty shops.

What makes this house unique

When we stay at A Victorian Rose, we usually have some work to do to our 100+ year old girl or we tend the small gardens, but we don't mind it at all, because it has such a magical, relaxing atmosphere. We love getting up early, drinking our coffee and talking on the front porch (even when it snows)and in the evening unwinding in the relaxing, warm hot tub.

Guestbook comments from the owner

If you are going to spend time in the Grass Valley

area, I suggest you check out A Victorian Rose. It's a cute Victorian with all the conveniences of modern life. It is beautifully decorated, private and very clean. It sleeps enough people comfortably to bring the whole clan. It also

has two full bathrooms which worked nicely for our two

teenagers. They also made good use of the TV/DVD, spa

and game room. I like saving money by not dining out each meal and the kitchen is well designed and supplied with plenty of cooking gear. Downtown Grass Valley is a short walk away. The ski resorts are onlya one hour easy

drive away! I enjoyed my stay at A Victorian Rose and I plan to return.

We enjoyed a girls weekend at Victorian Rose that was fantastic; everyone wants to go back. The house offers every amenity and the location is near to downtown shops and restaurants. The fall colors were spectacular!

Lovely home that was perfect for two families

  • 5 of 5

Catherine’s house was perfect for two families with young kids. The kids were completely entertained by the toys, movies, and books. And there were so many sleeping arrangement options that everyone was comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed to make all of our meals, and the hot tub was a real crowd pleaser for everyone.

Great for Families

  • 5 of 5

A Victorian Rose was the perfect "home base" for our family gathering. It was very clean upon arrival and full of many thoughtful touches. It was close to the cute downtown area, with a Safeway right around the corner. The whole place is roomy and charming, including the outdoor sitting areas. I would highly recommend this place for family gatherings, or for a multiple couples getaway. It was a great value and so comfortable.
