The City established the Bed & Breakfast and Short Term Rental standards to provide guidelines for home-based short term rentals in Grass Valley. Any rental less than 30 days is considered a “Short Term Rental.”
Check the Zoning for a property to learn if bed & breakfasts, short-term, and/or vacation home rentals are an allowed use, or if approval of a Minor Use Permit is required.
All applications, forms, and questions related to Short Term Rentals can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Compliance Agreement & TOT
All short-terms are required to register for Transient Occupancy Tax. Hosted and vacation home rentals (not Bed & Breakfasts) are required to submit a compliance agreement.
Minor Use Permit
Bed & Breakfasts in certain zones within the City require approval of a Minor Use Permit.
All vacation home rentals in the City require approval of a Minor Use Permit.
