About Sally and Grove Nichols

We are semi retired, originally from East Coast. Adult daughters and grandchildren are all living in San Francisco. We built the guest house to accommodate their frequent visits with growing families. We are golfers, skiers, tennis players, gardeners and pet owners.

Why Sally and Grove Nichols chose Sacramento

We have lived in the main house for 31 years. New Guest House stands on the site of the original barn and caretaker's cottage, which we tore down in 2013. Lot size is 1.3 acres, leaving a huge lawn in front of the guest house patio. Very private, cozy. Shady, large pet enclosure.

What makes this cottage unique

Private outdoor space, fenced in yard for occasional dog tenants. Dogs must be approved by owner. Plenty of parking. Cabin style interior with all new (or antique) furnishings and appliances. Dedicated wifi.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The family were great to host. They were very busy with the event of their daughter's wedding here in Sacramento but we caught glimpses of them coming and going. They were very appreciative, quiet, tidy and left the cottage in perfect shape. We'd welcome them back again any time. Sally and Grove

What a wonderful Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Very Important for us, are the people that are your hosts; Sally and Grove are kind, warm, and welcoming which helped make our stay memorable.

The Cottage is a 10, the décor, quality of everything , and the house amenities coupled with the immaculate yard, patio, and interior made us feel comfortable to the max.

Anyone fortunate to stay here will always want to come back again!

Serene country setting in the heart of Sacramento

  • 5 of 5

The guest cottage has everything you need including a full size, well equipped kitchen and laundry room. The unit was exceptionally clean and tastefully decorated. The king size bed was very comfortable. The cottage has its own outside patio and lawn area which is the perfect place to enjoy morning coffee or unwind with a glass of wine at dusk. The owners live on-site and are there to answer any questions or concerns and manage their role perfectly without being intrusive.

My husband and I usually stay in a hotel when we visit our daughter in Sacramento. This time we took a chance with VRBO and are so happy we did! This cottage is in a beautiful, quiet neighborhood and the hosts are kind, helpful and added so many great little touches to our stay. There was lots of room and all the amenities anyone would need. We couldn't get over how cute the decor was. Thank you for providing this service. I can't imagine staying anywhere else while in Sac.

Great for Sacramento explorers

  • 5 of 5

Our family (husband, wife, and two young boys) stayed at Grove and Sally's guest cottage for 5 days. We explored Sacramento and the surrounding areas each day. The cottage is located in Arden-Arcade, which is far enough away from the city to feel "home-y" but close enough that we could commute into Sacramento each day quickly. Arden-Arcade is a lovely neighborhood with higher-end homes and felt very safe coming back to each day. The cottage rental fee each day felt reasonable considering its furnishings - higher-end linens, well-equipped, cement floor (so it felt clean!), newer construction. The colors were energizing and inviting. We appreciated that it was mostly kid-friendly - there were kids' books and toys right by the door when we walked in, and the trundle bed was great for our 4-year old to sleep on. Grove and Sally were welcoming and gracious - Sally welcomed us personally after our first night, and they were gracious to understand when our boy accidentally broke a glass bowl. Our only wisdom for a young family staying is to consider where your young ones might sleep. We made it work having our toddler sleep in a pack-n-play (furnished by the cottage) in the bathroom or in the master each night, but if your little one is a light sleeper the size of the cottage might not work for you.
