We have been going on girls getaway weekends for many years and this is the first house we have rented that the photos are truly accurate! The house is breathtaking. There is that extra “attention to detail” in every corner. We were so happy we had the opportunity to meet Marney at the Uncorked event (which deserves its own review). Your home is lovely, well maintained and made us feel warm and relaxed. For the visiting cook, you will find a well supplied kitchen! So much to do, sample the night life, Farmers Market, wine tastings and for the foodies, fabulous restaurants all within walking distance of this house. A wonderful, memorable weekend, we highly recommend a visit to Nevada City as soon as you can. Thank you again, Marney.

I rented the cottage for a weekend in January, and could not have been more pleased! The location is fantastic, and the house is really lovely. There were just two of us, but you could easily sleep 4-6. Marney has done a lovely job with decorating and making sure that everything, and I mean everything, you could possibly need is accounted for – from the wine glasses to the washer and dryer. The central location was great as well, we didn’t have to move our cars for the entire weekend. I’m also picky when it comes to cleanliness of rental properties, and the house was immaculate. And, Marney was lovely to work with. We’ve already reserved the cottage again for another weekend getaway.

We rented this cottage for the week between Christmas & New Year…Family tradition was a week at Dillon Beach annually but it had been a really tramatic year in our family & I decided we needed something unfamiliar & hoped that would take my mind off of my current trama…Wow!! We arrived and immediately were amazed that the online description & photos seemed so minimal compared to seeing this beauty in person…She was gorgeous!! We parked & carried our luggage in. I must have walked around for 2 hours just looking at every beautiful heart warming detail & as I poked around and took in the atmosphere, I was blown away by the attn to detail the home owner, Marney put into this home. You truly felt like you were home, the decor, the amenities, the special warm touches, the scent of the home, etc…I had no idea why I landed in this cottage besides the fact that I literally went on line and pointed, clicked and sought out the opposite of where I usually vacation. Marney knew we were bringing my 5 year old son and had his room all cozy and child friendly, warm blankets and fluffy pillows, strategic night light, etc…The restrooms all had a different scent of soap and while thats suck a girl thing, we women love that!! She had matches for the fireplace, table clothes for the dining room, but the kitchen just blew me away and thats always my fave room in the house. She had the lil touches that make a woman want to spend time in the kitchen. Can opener, sugar for coffee, gum in the kitchen drawer & get this…laundry soap in laundry room…The detail from the woodworking, antiques, & door knobs were just amazing…If u ever have the chance to stay here, you have to…She will become your friend & you wont want to leave, & so will Marney…What a wonderful good & genuine person. Funny thing is, we loved the cottage & Nevada City so much, we relocated there a month after our visit to raise our son. I drive by the cottage weekly when out and wave as we pass.

What a great stay we had at the Two Room Inn in Gold Country’s gem of a town, Nevada City, with its spectrum of restaurants, lots of galleries, a wide array of shops and the Sierra’s history and beauty.

From the street, the Inn is very unusual and very attractive in appearance with its antique stained glass panels, ornamental eaves and solid redwood exterior. The exterior may be upstaged by the interior, not only is it tastefully decorated and appointed, it is warm and inviting with a feel of the Gold Country from the past.There is more stained glass incorporated in nearly every window and door, some of which are dated from England in the 1880’s. The original structure was a miner’s cabin which was expanded into a spacious 1300 square foot house.

The interior is beautiful, rich toned old redwood ceilings and walls, while the floors are elm. The cobblestone accents found in the house are from the streets of old San Francisco. The furnishings are very comfortable, complete. From the spacious main room, there is a view right down the middle of Broad Street, the main street in historic and beautifully maintained/restored Nevada City. The owner, Marney, has thoughtfully outfitted the house with every necessary convenience and gadget we needed and much more.

This place is an amazing value as it is priced comparably to some of the B&B;’s in town, but you get a whole beautiful house which can sleep up to six people— an ideal deal!

Before you book this place, check out the schedule of events in Nevada City and adjacent Grass Valley as there is some happening nearly twice a month between them such as parades, craft fairs, concerts, various holiday celebrations etc., or in other words, small town america with a historic flair. There is natural beauty found in town(Deer Creek) and extending for miles in every direction with hiking trails, biking and great swimming at multiple Yuba river highway/road crossings. I found several championship golf courses nearby.

My boyfriend and I recently stayed here and were pleasantly surprised by how close the house was to everything. It is literally at the end of the street so no need to drive in to town, which was wonderful. The house has many lovely accents and felt very warm and inviting. We asked for a late checkout and the owner was very accommodating. We will definitely be back!

The exterior may be upstaged by the interior, not only is it tastefully decorated and appointed, it is warm and inviting with a feel of the Gold Country from the past. I believe the correct term for its architectural design is Gothic Victorian.

There is more stained glass incorporated in(or in the panels above) nearly every window and door, some of which are dated from England in the 1880’s. I was told the original structure was a miner’s cabin which was expanded into a spacious 1300+ square foot house. The interior is beautiful, rich toned old redwood ceilings and walls, while the floors are elm. The cobblestone accents found in the house are from the streets of old San Francisco. The furnishings are very comfortable, complete and some are whimsical, like the old wooden duck decoy and cats. From the spacious main room, there is a view right down the middle of Broad Street, the main street in historic and beautifully maintained/restored Nevada City.

I found several championship golf courses nearby as an alternative to the shopping attractions just outside the front door. I have also stayed at Marney’s other equally special house located on North Shore Kauai’s spectacular Hanalei Bay which makes for a “can’t lose” vacation destination dilemma–tropical paradise, or historic Sierra Gold Country.

Upon the urging of my girlfriend who has since rented the gorgeous wonderland house, I wish to amend my earlier review by mentioning that not only is it perfect for “lovers” but it is actually large enough for two couples or even a small family unit. It is “well appointed” and has two large areas for separate occupation. So, if you want to fall or stay in love, this is a fine place to have it happen. But if you want to just make a friendship bond stronger, it is perfect for that as well.

Our stay in this Victorian Cottage was absolutely delightful – it is like being able to vacation in a fairy tale. The house is absolutely gorgeous – a stunning example of architecture – the location in Nevada City is perfect and the furnishings by the owner are so thoughtful and tasteful. I just could not have had a better time. The owner is also very personable and wonderful hostess – she truly wants you to enjoy yourself in her home. Nevada City is very well located – just a short drive to the snow and to wonderful parks and sites.
