“A gem in the mountains”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2011 via mobile

This is a late review as my stay here was a few years ago (just discovered the tripadvisor pp today) but this is one cute B&B that I intend to stay in again. There were 4 of us sharing a cottage for 3 days and the cottage was lean and everything seemed well cared for.
Michael was very accommodating and everything was clean and quiet.
Again, this is a simple B&B so it may not be for those who expect chocolates on their pillow but the place is clean and quaint and for the 4 of us friends who stayed for those 3 nights, perfect!

Stayed for 3 days at this delightful Cottage style Inn. Everything in our place was clean & neat & all put together very well. The bed was very very nice to sleep on! Kitchen area not cramped & well stocked. Fresh ground Coffee of a excellent variety was in a crock jar waiting for you; as was coffee filter & maker! Your stay can include a fruit breakfast or a wonderful elaborate spread to start your day. Take the bigger breakfast , it is always five star! And well worth $12!
Innkeepers are very helpful & pleasant too. It is very close to old part of Nevada City also. All in all a very good place to stay.Comfortable, quiet, clean & pleasant!

Room Tip: Cottages vary in size, ask ahead when making reservation.

My wife and I, plus my sister-in-law, stayed at Piety Hill Inn last year. It was a great experience. The area is beautiful, the cottage was clean, comfortable, and well-decorated, and the hosts (Micheal and Sharon) were amazing hosts - they really care about the guests.. You get the experience that is totally missing from going to a chain hotel.

The cottage was for two and we were three. Micheal has these "bed-and-sheets-sets" nicely packed for portability, which made a great bed for the third person, again very clean and comfortable.

I had a chance to talk to Micheal and ask about the history of the place. He bought the place many years ago and spent a lot of time rebuilding and renovating. So it's no wonder why he's so passionate about the place and making sure that his guests have the best time. He ans Sharon went out of their way to make sure we got everything we needed. My wife's camera broke on our way - she's a pro and has a big DSLR camera, and Micheal even helped us fix it.

By the way - they make jam from their own fruit there, and they sell the jam.... Don't miss it! Very delicious.

I highly recommend the place. It took me a while to write this review since upon returning from the trip my laptop was stolen and I forgot about doing this, but I finally sat down and did it since Micheal really deserves a positive review. I wish him the best :-)

Room Tip: Review the room descriptions on the website, and then give Michael a call - he's very helpful in...

What a wonderful surprise to find this inn. The individual cottage we stayed in felt so warm and comfortable. Probably could have stayed a week! Greeted kindly by one of the owners. Sitting outside in the patio, garden area after we settled in was heaven. Highly recommend the Piety Hill Inn!!

My wife and I have visited Nevada City many times over the past decade. We've stayed in a number of different B&B's but have come to like the Piety Hill Inn the best. The hosts take care to make sure you enjoy your stay. The rooms are always clean and we've never run out of hot water. The accomodations are like bunglows and your breakfast is delivered to your door. There is free Wi-Fi and television. Nevada City is a short walk away. We'll be back

We stayed here during our trip to visit family for Thanksgiving in the area on the recommendation of a family member and absolutely loved the place. It is walking distance from downtown Nevada City but is still quiet. It is setup well for convenient parking to each cottage with a gathering area in the center.

Be sure to pay for the full breakfast - it is well worth it. If you eat light in the morning, it wouldn't hurt to share a single breakfast for two.

We will be back in July for another family gathering and have already made reservations as well as enticed others to stay with us.
