Deserves a good recommendation. Our cottage was fine and quiet. The reception was helpfull. Excellent location close to town and to stores. The breakfast is good with many fruit. Your car has an own garage.

Hello pvh2510, Thanks for your kind reveiw here on TA. It was nice to have you with us. The garages are a nice perk for small to mid sized vehicles and there is ample parking for larger ones as well. Being less than a 1/2 mile (.04) from the historic district is quite convenient for a stroll into town and... More

The Chestnut Cottage was extremely cute, with lovely vintage furnishings. The property was well kept and very quiet. We enjoyed a glass of wine in the common yard. Although we didn't grill, all the equipment was readily available. The walk to town was easy and fun. The continental breakfast was amazing and plentiful. We would definately recommend the Piety Hill... More

We were three ladies staying in the Maple Cottage on a quiet weeknight and it was perfect ! Extremely clean and well decorated cottage included all the needed amenities. The bedroom and kitchenette area are larger than they look on the inn's website photos. The central garden/ courtyard was the best - tables under the canopy of the trees created... More

Hello TmTrip, Thanks for your time and kind words here on TA. It was great to have your family here with us for your "girls" trip. So glad that you enjoyed the courtyard. Most people are running on fumes by the time they get here, so this is a great spot to stop and "smell the roses", if you will,... More

My son and daughter-in-law got me a room on June 6th for the Nevada City Art Walk. Upon arriving on a very hot day at around 5pm my room was wonderfully cool. Very thoughtful of proprietors to think of turning the air conditioner on beforehand. I had a single garage that was right next to my room. Very handy for... More

This was one of two places we had pick to stay at. It just happen that the other one booked up fast, good for us the other one was out of the way. Check in was fast and the owner was very helpful. We stayed in the Daphne Cottage, it was one of the smaller ones but it was perfect.... More

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!

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!!
