About Us

   The Bret Harte Building has been proudly overlooking the Downtown Grass Valley Landscape for over 100 years. As a Senior Living Complex, we offer a charm and history unmatched by any other Senior Living Home in the area! Our residents also love the convenience of living downtown and enjoy the luxury of being able to stroll through Main Street to check out the many activities and events held in town. Our location allows just a bit more independence, which makes a big difference for active seniors.

   The Bret Harte Retirement Inn is owned and operated by Pattie Collins. Pattie keeps a careful eye on the building, safety, and happiness of the residents at Bret Harte and has been doing so for over 20 years. It continues to be a close-knit, family business which creates a warm environment felt by all who enter.
