A SLICE OF HEAVEN! What a wonderful, charming place! After we settled in, Lynnie, our hostess, greeted us with a delicious German chocolate cake! I had mentioned when I made the reservation, that my husband and daughter were celebrating my birthday, with this get-away from the city. The heavy rain kept us indoors, most of the time, which was all to the good, what with the wood burning stove to stoke, the windows to gaze out of at the majestic trees, and the quilts to curl up under. Every need was met...dreamy comfortable beds, a fully equipped kitchen, a cozy stove, satellite TV, DVD/VHS players, lots of games ... These city mice have found our “country house “

We only spent one night at the cottage as a friend was getting married up in the area. What a treat it was! So, quiet and peaceful. Really would have loved to stay longer and been able to enjoy it more.

My father loves nature and the woods, so I started looking online for a vacation rental that would provide such a location to celebrate his 89th birthday. The Meadow View Cottage at the ‘Perfect Place” Retreat provided all of my father’s favorite things in nature, including doe sightings, the sounds of the river running by our cottage and walking trails throughout the area. Our personal levels of comfort were met physically and emotionally with all the amenities you would ever need to cook, eat, drink, relax, entertain or be entertained from the satelite television, the extensive collection of games for all ages, and an even larger selection of current DVD movies for all ages to enjoy. Lynnie, the owner, has decorated this cozy cottage with thoughtful care, personal touches, aesthetically inviting details and beautiful, as well as humorous, thematic appointments in every single room in the house. Lynnie is definitely one of the greatest assets of the whole experience of renting any one of her three homes at the ‘Perfect Place” retreat. She is a genuine people person who takes great care in ensuring that your expressed needs and possible unexpected needs will be met in her homes away from home. For instance, upon our arrival, she met my family at the front door of the cottage with a homemade German Chocolate birthday cake for my father in her hands. Her very personal and thoughtful gesture was not only a greatly appreciated “gift” but a preview of the exemplary customer services that followed. I recommend Lynnie and her ‘Perfect Place” retreat, without reservations. We plan on making the ‘Perfect Place’ a yearly tradition for our physical, mental and emotional wellness.

November 2008

We were in Grass Valley from Nov. 1st.-3th. 2008 the cost of 2 hotel rooms for this period of time over a weekend was awful. So we chose the house and what a retreat it is! A beautiful, private woodland setting. The house suits the property and is decorated like an exclusive family lodge, comfortable, clean, spacious yet cozy. We loved the place and the owner was friendly and accommodating. I would recommend this property to everyone for business or pleasure. The accommodations are indeed Perfect!

May 2008

The “Perfect Place” is truely a perfect place to stay. We stayed for 5 days in May, 3 adults 3 children. The house is beautifully decorated the location is fantastic nestled among the trees, very private, but 8 minutes to grocery store and restaurants. The owner Lynnie is a wonderful lady, who has thought of everything. We have stayed at 4 other VRBO properties(from Virginia, to the Colorado Ski resorts, to California) and the “Perfect Place” exceeds the other places hands down. The kitchen has everything you could image, we cooked full meals and never wanted for anything. There is a large selection of videos, games, books, for both children and adults. The trails you could walk to were hours of fun for the kids. The several porches were great for relaxing and reading. If you are looking for a place in the Grass Valley area I would highly recommend the “Perfect Place.”

My family and I stayed here for 6 days in April of 2008. It was a very comfortable, high quality home. Many unique furnishings, lovely surroundings. We would definately like to come back.

Dear Lynnie,
What a fabulous place! My husband wanted me to be sure and thank you for the “best ever” German Chocolate Cake for his birthday! He was so surprised by it! We truly had the most wonderful time. It was so quiet & peaceful. I promise you this...WE WILL BE BACK!! Our Anniversary is in June and we are already looking forward to spending it here!
God Bless,
