Located in the midst of the Trinity Alps, in the historic downtown district, this hotel is an anchor of the town's gold rush history.
Originally built in 1861, it was restored to its original high ceilings and wood floors during renovation finished in 2004. The ambiance is of the 1880’s with four-poster beds, gas log fireplaces, and claw-footed tubs in most of the 7 rooms. All rooms have private bathrooms with showers, air conditioners, heaters, ceiling fans, hair dryers, coffee makers, and WiFi. A microwave and refrigerator are available in the store-room across from Room 2. A telephone is available for guests in the telephone booth at the top of the stairs. No smoking inside the building but there are several swings and comfortable rocking chairs along the side of the hotel where guests are welcome to smoke if they wish. This is a pleasant place to sit on a summer evening, even if you don't smoke. Rates are lower during the week than on week-ends, quite a bit lower in the winter time than during the summer.
Check-in is between 2pm and 6pm and check-out is at 11am unless otherwise arranged.
