Overview

About the property

Private house

This private 1000-square-foot artist-created elegant house located in the lovely and quaint town of Nevada City, California is full of inspiring details; cozy, colors galore, with finely detailed artistic touches throughout.

We are dog friendly: two dogs allowed if smaller than 12 lbs each; one dog if larger than 12 lbs. $25 pet fee per night per dog. No other visiting dogs allowed on property, inside or out. You must inform us in your first email about your dog.

We open the second bedroom only for a 3rd or 4th guest, which costs $25 per night per person.

• Perfect for a couple's get-away

The Art Cottage is filled with contemporary art, objets d'art and a library of art books as well as art-related videos.

The yard is enclosed with a fence. A wonderful 100-year-old walnut tree shades nearly the entire yard. Sorry, we no longer have a BBQ. There is parking right in front of the entrance for one car and a few feet away on the main road for a second car or guests.

We do take one-night reservations: if it's up against another reservation we will do it in advance, otherwise only 3 days in advance.

No parties, loud events, loud music. No outside noise after dark.

No smoking indoors.

About Connie

Owner artist of The Art Cottage

Connie purchased this cottage in 1990

Why Connie chose Nevada City

Next to paradise. Quiet, mellow town.

What makes this cottage unique

Art, art and more art. Beautiful setting.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed the art, colors, textures, design and details. Everywhere. Ovbiously completing the cottage was a long project filled with love and excitement. It has so many aspects with comfort and convenience. After our stay, we'll dread drab motels.

We had a great time visiting our son. Did a whitewater raft trip and the American River and local site seeing, but many more to see when we return. Love Nevada City and the area. Glad we found you on VRBO!

Birthday weekend a blast!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Nevada City and Connie's artist cottage is the perfect place to stay and enjoy this quaint, friendly and lovely town! We loved how each room is decorated - nothing ordinary at all! The kitchen is roomy and had everything we needed to cook the fresh foods from the farmer's market, enjoy the wine and cheese while enjoying jazz on the Bose. Thank you, Connie! We had an awesome time!

Still lovely in 2017

  • 5 of 5

We visited in 2015 and we loved the look and feel of the house. In 2017 we were so happy to see the trees and plants so well taken care of and the home still charming. Kudos to this property owner.

Great home and lovely owner

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely, eclectic and creative little home in Nevada City. We only stayed overnight, but had everything we needed. Connie was a great host, and was really understanding and fair when our dog chewed a bit of doorframe. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit!

Comfortable and spacious

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was very comfortable and nice inside. Owner very responsive if you have any issue arise. Air conditioning didn't seem to work well but plenty of fans in the house. Walking distance to town if you don't mind a walk. We were very comfortable during our stay.

Everything you need is provided and then some.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home. Art everywhere, but not overwhelmingly so. Lots of extras - mini speaker for phone, CDs, library, nice deck with outside seating for meals, etc. everything was clean, comfortable and miticulously maintained. Connie was immediately responsive to any queries. We definitely will return.
