There are several cottages of various sizes, each with its own theme. They are clean, comfortable, and cute. Also, close to town. Breakfast is delivered to your cottage and is always good. There are fridges, microwaves, and coffee makers. And dishes and pots if you feel like cooking.

My family of four stayed the the Maple Cottage, which had a separate bedroom with a queen bed, and the kids stayed on the trundle bed in the living room. My youngest was in love with the little kitchen, it was like being in a dollhouse kitchen, very cute. Note about the kitchen, they have nice glasses and plates, but...

Hi Rob K, Thanks for your nice review. For some unknown reason (even to TripAdvisor as per my call to them today) I have not been receiving notification of reviews, so I appologize that this "thank you" is late in comming!

This is going to be a long review, so grab a cup of your favorite beverage and get ready to sit a spell. First, the good parts. The cottages are quaint, but small. My wife and I stayed in the Maple Cottage, which is the only cottage with a stove. It burns DuraFlame logs, and provides the only real heat...

Though touted as a B&B, breakfast is NOT included in your room rate. Would suggest your bring your own food or purchase it at a market down the street from the cottages. NICE: My cottage was well appointed; most cottages have semi-enclosed garages; clean (though kitchen shelves - which are open - could use dusting); coffee and hot chocolate packets...

My friends stayed for several nights a while back and just loved the place. The cottages are nice and some have small kitchens- I mention this as I several years ago stayed in one of the kitchenette cabins for over a week while closing on a new house. The whole property is quiet, offers outdoor seating, and it's more like...

Quaint step back in time cottage. Quiet and well located. Do not use GPS but call hotel, streets in Nevada City are not the best marked or laid out. Basic unit that is being updated, but priced accordingly. Good bargin price & owner's wife is the jam maker champion of the county.

We stay at Piety Hills yearly. Always comfortable and welcoming. Each cottage is different and we have stayed in several. For a 4-5 day stay the kitchenettes are nice to have. And location is great as there is a market near by. Also walkable to down town. Will be back!

We came to Nevada City with friends for a wedding and all of us stayed at Piety Cottages. We really enjoyed our stay. Being in a cottage instead of a hotel room was so nice because it felt like our home, and with our friends in cottages nearby it felt like a wonderful neighborhood. *But a big part of what...

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.

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Comfortable, casual, and private, our cozy cottages are a relaxed setting for singles, couples and families. As our guest, you will retire to a one, two or three room cottage with French Country or Early American decor. Each has a kitchenette with a microwave, various dishes, a small fridge and coffee maker, as well as complimentary coffee, tea, and hot cocoa. Your cottage will have a private bath and may have a King, Queen, or King and Day Bed w/Trundle. Each cottage has a television (some with a VCR or DVD), heating and air conditioning. A delicious full, hot or generous continental breakfast can be delivered to your cottage or out in the flower garden between 8:00 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. Our courtyard has several BBQs and lots of room for the kids to burn off some energy. The Yuba River and many high mountain lakes (including The Tahoe National Forest) are just a short distance up Hwys 20 & 49. ... more   less
