“Good Breakfast”
Reviewed 24 August 2013

We spent a night here while visiting Gold Country. It's a cute little place that looks good during the day and even cuter at night when the lights are up. Walking distance to downtown.

The reason I didn't give it a 5 star is that I feel that this B&B is a little 'commercialized'. When we walked in, there was a big marble/granite counter where we checked in, very much like a hotel. The check in process was efficient, the conversation was normal and formal. Personally, I find that it lacks the warm B&B appeal.

Room was decent with country style decor. The light was a little dim for me as I often like to read before bed time. I couldn't do that. One of the lamps didn't work and I asked to replace the bulb. They suppose to replace it while we were out but nothing was done when we got back - a bit disappointed on that front.

Both my husband and I didn't sleep well. The bed was a bit soft and not supporting the back very well. My husband said he had to sleep close to the center to avoid being rolled off the bed because the mattress was soft and lower on the edge

Breakfast starts at 8:30am. There were two courses - coffee cake and fruits, followed by main course. I'd say the breakfast is the most memorable of my stay here.

stayed for 2 nights in june as we were visiting yosemite (bout 1hr - 1.5hrs away). lovely room in victorian homey style. large bathroom with huge shower. pretty quiet apart from the occasional motorbike nearby. breakfast is the best part of this place. all homemade, came in 2 courses with juice an coffee. think it changes regularly. drinks and snacks near front desk all the time. the owners are really nice too. only let down is jamestown itself - tiny, shops never seem to open. seems to be only one place to eat.

We ended up here because everything was booked in Columbia and Sonora (apparently it was the Frog Jumpin' Jubilee weekend, who knew?). But I'm so glad that we stayed here! The hospitality was first rate, as was the room, and the breakfast. Jamestown is a little sleepier than Sonora, and we loved walking around the town. A+

Room Tip: The rooms are all unique, and they are open, unless it is occupied. It gives you a chance to "...

We stayed here for 1 night. The owners were nice and helpful and the rooms were clean and cozy. The decor was perhaps a slightly overdone for our tastes, but the bathroom featured a two-person shower which was a nice surprise.
The breakfast was simply excellent. Lots of fresh fruit, a great little omelet with a muffin and a light apple crumple.
Apparently the stay is somewhat cheaper if you book two nights, making it competetive with choosing a hotel, and a lot better.
Also, Jamestown, to our surprise, was actually quite charming and had some good restaurants.

We stayed in the suite on the second floor. The accommodations were excellent and the history of the inn added to the stay. The food was absolutely heavenly. Breakfasts started with fruit and a creative baked dish followed by a second serving of hot delicious creative dishes served beautifully. The inn keepers were warm and accommodating. It was a true delight to stay there.

Room Tip: Each room was set up with different accents and varying bed sizes. We chose a suite with the king s...

Located just off Main Street in Jamestown, we were very happy to get a room for New Year's. As mentioned in previous posts, the room itself is small but had a very nice bathroom. Very clean too. Note that arrival time is 3 p.m. We arrived right on time and were met by the Inn Keepers who were a very nice couple. Among some of the benefits we noted were a pretty decent cable television connection with a large DVD collection if one wanted to use those. All day coffee service with cookies and biscotti while we were there. Wi-Fi worked like a champ. Breakfast the next morning was very nice and we enjoyed our meal and some great conversation with other guests. Beds are a little firm which was great for me but so-so for my wife. Plenty of parking in the back. Very conveinent to Jamestown and Sonora. We at the National Hotel and had an outstanding meal. For golfers, there are some very nice golf courses nearby. We will stay here again.

We stayed two nights and the room was very nice. Each room appears to have their own themes ranging from the late 1800's to the early 1900's. The hosts were very nice and the breakfasts were very good. The building and grounds are well maintained. As an added bonus coffee, teas, and Biscotti were available in the reception area. We highly recommend this B&B........

Room Tip: If we stay again, we would try the upstairs rooms as a change in pace...............
