Off the main highway in historic Amador City is this gem of a hotel. Each of the six rooms is unique. We stayed in #5 with a king bed and private bath. It was cute, quiet and comfortable. Loved that there was no TV.
Had dinner in their downstairs restaurant. The host, Pete, was very gracious. The high ceilinged dining room has a very comfortable ambience. Service was a little slow, but owner Mary Ann stopped by and expedited it. She also recommended the chilled mango soup to go with the local rose wine I had selected. It was to die for! The bread is fresh from Andrae's Bakery up the street, and we couldn't get enough of it! The salad with blueberry balsamic vinaigrette and candied pecans was excellent... My spaghetti was cooked perfectly, and the sauce was flavorful; I just wish there'd been a little more of it. My husband's polenta was also very good. The wine list is strictly local Amador County wines, and had some great by-the-glass selections. After dinner we had a drink at the quaint, old-fashioned bar, where Pete took good care of us. We met the chef, who seemed quite young for someone of such obvious talent. Next morning's breakfast was tasty French toast, made from the same great Andrae's bread, topped with fresh blueberries. All the staff were friendly and accommodating.
The town was hosting its first Banjo Festival that Saturday, so we were treated to a variety of musical presentations as we strolled around before heading off on our wine tasting adventure.
We will look forward to our next visit, hoping it is soon!
