Piety Hill is a cute little inn made up of individual or duplex units from the 1930's. It's in the process of renovation (on the outside). The rooms inside are renovated. We felt like Clark Gable and Carole Lombard in "It Happened One Night!" I love antiques and new experiences when traveling. The decor was very "period." The a/c worked... More

My group of four retired teachers stayed at the Piety Hill Inn during the Summer Night Festival in Nevada City. We all raved about the White Birch cottage we rented. It was spacious, comfortable, extremely clean, and full of darling decorating touches. The kitchen was spotless with many new appliances. We spent a lot of time sitting, and of course... More

This was my second stay at Piety Hill Inn. This time I stayed in the Apple Blossom Cottage which has it's own porch. The cottage has every amenity you will ever need, including covered parking in your own garage. The kitchenette too, although we didn't use it this trip. I love the historic feel of Nevada City, and this Inn,... More

Over the years, we have stayed at six different places in Nevada City. When we found the Piety Hill Inn our search for the perfect lodging was over. The woodsy setting, the charming old cottages, the lavish gourmet breakfasts served in the garden or brought on a tray to your room, and the over-all pampering and upbeat attitude of hosts,... More

We really enjoyed staying in our cozy little cottage. The room was charmingly decorated, and comfortable enough where you wanted to come home to it in the evening and linger in the morning, but not so extravagant where you'd choose to stay in your room over exploring Nevada City and the surrounding area. It was immaculately clean and the bed... More

My second very pleasant stay at Piety Hill confirmed that the first was no fluke. Took a different room this time (Walnut this trip, Apple Blossom last trip) and found it to be just as lovely, homey, and unpretentious. The host and hostess obviously spent a lot of time and effort to create unique and comfortable accommodations; clean, welcoming, and... More

We were traveling through the area and had 5 people (2 adults and 3 teenagers) and didn’t want to rent two rooms at a hotel and then spend the night watching our kids try to sneak past our room. So instead we rented the White Birch cottage (sleeps 6) at Piety Hill. Check in was fast and easy. We called... More

I was expecting a stay at a bed and breakfast type inn. That being said this is far from what I expected. The room was small and very out of date, and not all that clean.

92% of our business is generated through our website, which is quite descriptive as to the type of property we offer for your leisure stay in Nevada City. We ARE NOTa victorian style Bed & Breakfast. We were built as a "motor court" motel at the hieght of the depression in 1933. Luxury was not an option back then and... More

We booked only a week or so before we arrived so we were put in two different rooms. The grounds are lovely and the innkeepers have done a lot of work with the plantings to make the place look inviting and charming. The rooms, however, are a disaster. The first room we stayed in had a lumpy old mattress, a... More
