Stayed for a couple of nights in the Apple Blossom cottage. All quite fine. Comfortable, gently worn in, but clean. It is like staying at your great-great aunt's. Shower was a little small and bathroom layout awkward. We made our own breakfast, as grocery store is in within walking distance, as well as the funky town of Nevada city. Designated... More

We have stayed here several times while visiting our son. Such a great place! Nice walk to downtown. Convenient grocery store. And the cottages are so charming. Breakfast delivered to your door is such a bonus. We won't stay anywhere else when we are in Nevada City.

We have stayed twice at Piety Hill Cottages and enjoyed every minute of both visits! Both of our stays were in the Maple Cottage which has a separate bedroom and a sitting room with a trundle bed and fireplace. The fireplace came in handy during our Thanksgiving weekend stay. What a nice perk to have in a B&B! We spent... More

Staying at the cottages is reminiscent of simpler times which is what I want in getting away. Michael, the innkeeper, is kind, accessible, and accommodating and made our stay flawless.

Staying at Piety Hill Cottages is a fun experience. The food delivered to your room by Michael is wonderful and he has prepared it for you. The meal is more than filling with plenty to spare.

If you are expecting an old Victorian bnb, you will be surprised as this is much better! Originally a 1930's motor hotel, the place has been successfully converted to a quaint cottage bnb. The place is beautifully furnished with period antiques, has small kitchen with table and chairs, clawfoot tub and above all, the place is a quiet getaway from... More

This is a lovely option, very different from those chain hotels - if you are expecting chain hotel amenities, think again! This is a quaint, cute place with individual cottages - each one is unique.

What a perfectly charming little place that fits in Nevada City! It's a vintage property, a cottage is a perfect description. We stayed in the Laurel cottage, with a small open garage. It had a small kitchenette with everything you need. The king bed was so comfortable with memory foam. The sheets were wonderful! The bathroom was small, but clean.... More

Located at the intersection of rustic and urbane, my accommodations were extremely charming, comfortable and well designed. Not for everyone, and probably the antithesis of the corporate model, but a perfect bungalow hideaway, and very much attuned to the town in which it resides, hearkening back to a time with a somewhat more relaxed pace The friendly owners (and cat)...
