For us, it happened to be a special, romantic weekend celebration, but I would stay here again under any circumstances. There were many adorable little details about this cottage - more than I can possibly list. Next time, I will take some photos. We stayed in the Chestnut cottage. We got the last cottage available, which just saved us the... More

We are so pleased that you chose Piety Hill Cottages Motel and B&B for your romantic getaway. Our weather was warmer than normal for this time of year during your stay but still a bit chilly for using the courtyard to "hang out" in so come to see us in May-Sept. for some spectacular mountain weather! Thanks for taking the... More

After a four-year hiatus we were able to get back to Piety Hill again. We were extremely pleased to find that the hosts (friendly and attentive), room (beautiful, comfortable, and complete), and service (breakfast was very tasty and perfectly on-time) were still A-1!

My friend and I booked a cottage called Maple for a two night stay in Nevada City. When we got there the room was super heated, someone had had the wood stove going. This was not a problem as we put on the air conditioner a few hours to cool it down to a reasonable temperature . What was however,... More

Hello Linda B. Thanks for your comments here on TA. We never rent the Maple Cottage with the wood burning stove already ablaze. We do however preheat the cottages for arriving guests if the temps are expected to drop drastically as it did on the night that you stayed. The stove has not been used by a guest since early...

We only had one night at these cottages but I wish that we had had the opportunity to stay longer. The cottage we had (Daphne) was very prettily decorated with a comfortable bed, excellent shower and real individual character. The little touches - such as a pot of excellent ground coffee, use of a BBQ and seats in the central... More

A fine old motor court, nicely landscaped, with lovely rooms. The folks that run this place were helpful, friendly and knowledgable about the area. The rooms were comfortable and quiet. All and all it was great and looking forward to returning!!

I think one of the best ways to judge a place is if you would return. I think an even better way to judge a place is if you find yourself trying to figure out ways to return soon!

Because we ended up modifying our agenda we were late in seeking reservations in Nevada City, so most everything was booked. One kind B&B owner recommended we try Piety Hill Cottages. We did and they had availability...our first clue. Once I made the reservation the owner read me a list of her rules that she said we needed to abide... More

This is a lovely place, with lots of charm and amenities, but the water problem made it unpleasant. We stayed here two nights (Chestnut Cottage) while in the area for a family get-together. The first morning (Sunday of the Labor Day weekend) we attempted to shower around 8:30am -- the first shower was marginal, but the second was my turn,... More

I am so very sorry that the water pressure was so low. I had two of my staff try to duplicate the problem at 2 different times to no avail. It apparently only happens when everyone uses the water at the same time on that side of the property. I had a plummer out today to see if he could... More
