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 North 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

A lovely, comfortable cottage located in a very nice, quiet neighborhood.

We were so lucky to have found this cottage! It was perfect for our family of three adults and two dogs. The house is very clean and well stocked with everything you need. The hosts were very accommodating as well. I would definitely recommend to anyone staying in the Sacramento area.

Great find!

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for us for a weekend stay. Plenty of space for my husband and I, our two young kids, AND two dogs! The cottage is really well done (Sally, will you come lend your style expertise to me in San Diego?! ;)) and we really appreciated the thoughtful touches from the pint of milk and cuties in the fridge to the pretty fresh cut flowers from the garden. We'll definitely be back. Thanks again!

Absolutely Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with our small children. I can’t say how much I appreciated the owner setting out small toys for the kids to play with and bikes for them to ride. The neighborhood is lovely. We took walks and there was very little car traffic so it was safe for the kids. My kids repeatedly asked if we could move here. I wish!

My husband lost the key to the house after a long day touring the city with the kids. The kids were in meltdown tired phase and I was worried we’d be locked out for hours. The owner was sweet (and prepared) and got us a spare key in minutes even though she was out of town.

This is a gem of a place and the owners are fabulous.
