I was recently in Nevada City for a workshop and stayed 5 nights at Piety Hill Cottages, in a lovely half-cabin. The room was very clean and comfortable... cozy even! Peaceful grounds for lounging under the trees or picnicking. They offer breakfast (which I didn't have) that is cooked to order! Management is super friendly and accommodating. (They found two...

Thank You, Faun F, for taking the time out of your day to leave a nice word for us here on TA. I was excited to see that you made some new friends here on the property that were also in your class!

Piety Hill Cottages are a journey back in time. The decor and amenities are vintage America and the whole set up is rather quirky in a nice way. We really enjoyed our two night stay and the opportunity to indulge in a bit of a time warp with the decor, the equipment and the atmosphere; think vintage fridge, home sweet... More

Hello Elizabeth9500, Though the property is indeed 82 yrs old and has that "vintage America" feeling it has been updated with many new things like carpeting, bedding and decore. Keeping that "journey back in time" felling is quite a job when searching for those things that have been replaced and we are happy that you have enjoyed the ambiance. Not... More

White Birch cottage may not be what you would expect or receive at a big name hotel, but what it lacks in modern amenities it more than makes up for in space, solitude, and a return to simpler times. If you're expecting chilled to perfection air conditioning and a fashion-forward décor, then you'll be disappointed. However, if you're refreshed by... More

Hi Laurie B, So glad that you enjoyed your stay here on Piety Hill. Last year we added an air conditioner to the bedroom, (though someone stole the remote this week) and I purchased a new one for the livingroom just a few days ago. It will be installed upon the next "check-out" opportunity. This should help with the comfort... More

Just a quick note to mention how much we enjoyed our recent stay in a Piety Hill cottage. Comfortable accommodation, great location, knowledgeable and friendly proprietors. The garden area in front of the cottages is a nice plus.

Hi Jim, It is allways nice to see returning guests! and especially when they come back and bring a new guest to our property. That is a compliment that we regard highly.

White Birch cottage was at the rear of the property and was a lovely secluded spot. We were only 2 in the cottage but there would have been more than enough room if there were 4 of us . Well equipped kitchen and lots of DVDs available in the lounge . Shower a bit of a tight squeeze but perfectly... More

Piety Hill offered several cottages with different accommodations. Proprietors very helpful and friendly. Be sure to call before booking so that you will get a cottage that suits your needs. Cottages clean, grounds well kept, breakfast (if you choose to order) very good and plentiful.

The service is excellent and the rooms very comfortable. There's space to sit in the room and a nice kitchenette for making tea & coffee. It's an enjoyable ten minute walk into the lovely Navada City (which is really worth a visit) and there's a supermarket up the road for breakfast supplies. We had good croissant (we bought ourselves) with... More
