This is a gem of a historical building, located in a quaint and friendly gold rush town, that still features many authentic buildings from the 1850’s. The hotel is charming, and the owner and staff are very welcoming

This is exactly what it purports to be. A Sierra foothills small old town B&B. Furnishings are authentic Gold Rush vintage. People very friendly. The tiny live dog mascot is a gem. If you can safely survive the winding, narrow, mountain gorge roads from both directions, more power to you. Breakfast is a big positive; no screens on the windows a negative. There are floor power strips to accommodate modern electrical needs. Fewer bathrooms than bedrooms. Jeep guided trail riding is close by.

Turned from a bed and breakfast to just a bed.
Our plans changed and the owner was very accommodating with our late arrival the first night and having to vmcancancle a day at the end. Very nicely and well maintained Victorian bed and breakfast. Our room was rather small so there was no where to sit. But that was a minor issue. We were there for breakfast on the first morning and die to the time breakfast was served we were very specific we would miss day two but be there again for day three. We cam down 30mins before breakfast, chatted with the staff and other guests the whole time breakfast was being prepared. It wasn't until they started serving that they decided to tell us they hadn't made anything for us. They said they would make something and "have it right out". We left 15 minutes later due to our schedule without breakfast.
