The following policies have been developed for the comfort and protection of both the Inn and our Guests. Please familiarize yourself with them as you will be asked to accept and abide by them when making a reservation with our Nevada City property near Grass Valley CA.
We guarantee that you will always find the lowest available rate on PietyHillCottages.com or by calling us directly for an upcoming mid-week reservation or on Thursdays for an upcoming weekend reservation @ 530-265-2245.
Our regular rates range from $74.95 to $204.95 per night for two people in one bed, depending upon the season, size, amenities, and location of the cottage. Extra guests or beds are $10 each night. Children up to 24 months are free. Rates shown are exclusive of 10% Nevada County/City travel tax.
Premium pricing may apply year round on some Holidays and Major Events as well as on one night stays for "in season" weekends when available.
Reservations may be held with a Visa, American Express, MasterCard, Discover or cold-hard cash. A confirmation letter or email will be sent upon the approval of your credit card. Deposits must be paid with a Major Credit Card. The remaining balance may be paid with a debit card upon arrival.
There are many administrative costs associated with making, changing and canceling a reservation, including labor costs, fees for credit card charges and reservation system royalties that we pay to third parties for the use of their proprietary property once you make a reservation and whether you fulfill your reservation or not. Therefore, we charge a non-refundable $25.00 deposit per cottage when you make your reservation (applied upon arrival). This takes the cottage out of our on-line reservation system for you. Once, that cottage, in that price range, is no longer available to other potential guests on-line, it has been rented to you for that date in the future.
Larger deposits and minimum nights may be required on extended stays and "blocks of 3 or more cottages". CALL FOR DETAILS Before booking 530-265-2245 8am-9pm
Cancellations and Reservation Changes
A 7 day cancellation notice is required for all reservations. A 14 day notice is required for holidays and major events and 30 days is required for a "3 or more cottages" block as well as some extended stays.
No shows and last minute cancellations that cannot be filled will be charged up to 100% of the confirmed reservation. Reservations will be considered confirmed when an email or letter has been sent to the address provided by you.
Cancellations and reservation change requests must be in writing and sent from the email address that you provided when making your reservation. If your cancellation or change request is already inside of the required notification time when we receive it, we will put the Cottage(s) back into the on-line system to be re-sold. If we are able to re-sell the cottage(s), we will refund all but the $25.00 (or otherwise negotiated) initial deposit to the card used for that deposit.
We do not refund for circumstances beyond our control; i.e.: inclement weather, illness, etc.
Prices and policies are subject to change without notice until reservations are confirmed.
Management reserves the right to reassign cottages when necessary.
(This rarely happens but usually results in a free upgrade).
We reserve the right to refuse service when necessary.

A two night minimum is required for weekends "in season" April 16 – Jan 5 (dates are approximate and are reflected in real time on the booking engine).
Two and Three night minimums may apply year round on some Holidays and Major Events.

Smoking & Pets
Smoking is limited to the outdoors. Ashtrays are provided throughout the property
We regret that we are not equipped to receive pets as guests anywhere on the property.
Evidence of smoking (including Cannabis or burning of incense) or pets having been inside the Cottage(s) will result in a $250.00 cleaning fee and the season's Cottage Rate for each day that the cottage is unavailable to other guests due to damage or odor cessation.
Each Cottage kitchenette is equipped with dishware and flatware for 2, 4, or 6 persons depending on the size of the cottage. Because we provide real dishes in each cottage (not throw away plastic stuff) we do ask that they be left clean (not just rinsed) for the next guest. You may leave them out to dry and we will put them away.
Express Check Out: for a nominal fee they may be left for housekeeping to attend to upon check out.
Should you choose Express Check Out, housekeeping will do them for you. A charge of $10, $20 or $30 (depending on the Cottage) will be charged to the credit card on file.
Our Daily Rates include a light daily tidy-up housekeeping service. This consists of straightening beds, (vacuuming & mopping floors when necessary), providing fresh towels if requested or found on the floor (please help conserve resources by reusing when possible) and refurbishing the amenities (such as soap, shampoo & toilet paper as well as kitchenette amenities, [coffee, tea, cocoa, etc.]). This service is provided between the hours of 11 am & 3 pm. Please let us know if you would prefer not to receive housekeeping services. A request for a full linen change out on days with a minimum night stay is $15.00
Weekly and Extended Stay guests may request daily housekeeping services for an extra charge.
Broken or Damaged Items
