“Wonderful weekend getaway”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

We were in Nevada City, California, this weekend for a family wedding and had the pleasure of staying at the Deer Creek Inn. After a long day of traveling from Boston, we were warmly greeted by Ruth, the innkeeper, who gave us a tour and history of this wonderful Victorian B&B. We stayed in the Sheryl Room on the second floor, a beautifully appointed, spacious and quiet room with a balcony overlooking Deer Creek. After settling in, we joined Ruth and other guests on the outside porch area for wine and a delicious appetizer that Ruth had made. Coffee is set out at 7:00 a.m., so we took advantage of that on our balcony before setting out for a walk to explore the area. We were back in time for the incredible, home-cooked selection of dishes Ruth prepared for the 9:00 a.m. breakfast. We ate outside overlooking the creek and the beautiful grounds and flowers that surround the inn. We were able to slow down, relax and enjoy wonderful food and hospitality in this beautiful oasis, which is just steps away from downtown Nevada City. The Deer Creek Inn is a perfect place for a getaway, and we hope to travel back there again.

The Deer Creek Inn is one of the best B&Bs we've been to. The building itself is charming and exceptionally well cared for. The grounds are quiet and well maintained, and they border Deer Creek. The yard is a great place to sit and relax. The hostess, Ruth, makes her guests feel welcome and at home. Breakfast is a gourmet experience. Downtown Nevada City is just a short walk from the Inn. For anyone who wants to experience the charm of the Nevada City area, this is a perfect retreat.

Room Tip: We stayed in Ida's room at the back of the Inn. It was fairly large and very quiet.

This is the B & B to go to! The Victorian is beautiful inside & out. The rooms are comfortable. Ruth, the innkeeper makes you feel at home. An easy walk to the city's main street area. Only downside, we had to go home. We will definitely stay here the next time we are in Nevada City.

Room Tip: We had a room with a private balcony. There is a screen on the door so we were able to sleep with t...

What a perfect get away. This lovely Victorian B&B is located away from the hustle and bustle of Nevada City's Main Street and is situated directly alongside Deer Creek. Sitting on one of the park benches along side the creek shaded by mature trees and listening to the water bubbling by, you get lost in your thoughts. We stayed in Gigi's room which has a private entrance and overlooks the creek and the lovely grounds. Everything about the inn is spot on and Ruth is the perfect hostess. You feel like you are visiting a friend. She made a great recommendation for dinner and also told us about the free concert in the park that was happening that evening. The breakfast was outstanding; wonderful quiche, potatoes, fruit and a berry crisp kept us so well fortified that we skipped lunch. We look forward to coming back again to Deer Creek Inn. If you come to Nevada City don't even think about staying any place else.

Room Tip: Gigi's room has a private entrance and overlooks the creek and lovely grounds.

If you like B&B gems, this one should be on your list. Lovely restored Victorian, within walking distance from downtown, beautiful welcoming garden with natural creek invite guests to relax and unwind. Delicious breakfast served on the patio in summer. Warm and engaging host. We highly recommend this B&B.

Had a wonderful Bed and Breakfast experience at the Deer Creek Inn in Nevada City. It's a lovely old Victorian home with authentic furniture and beautifully maintained grounds. You are within walking distance of shops and restaurants, as well as hiking trails. The innkeeper, Ruth, goes out of her way to make this an experience you will want to repeat many times. Her breakfasts are the best part of the morning. Fabulous getaway spot!

Our stay was awesome. It is a lovely well appointed, period decorated B&B. Ruth, our host, was extremely pleasant, helpful, friendly and personable. We felt very welcomed and everything was perfect. The gourmet breakfast was excellent, served on the lovely outdoor deck/patio. Highly recommend this lovely home. Hope we can visit again.

Room Tip: Not sure how to remove entry about pool and fitness center, there are none.
