Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 August 2014

Was able to talk my wife into a last minute getaway to Nevada City and began by checking highly rated places on Tripadvisor. Turned out that one of the highest rated B&B's had a room available. So we booked the GiGi room for two nights.
What a pleasure! Ruth, the resident manager and gourmet cook, was there to greet us when we arrived. She showed us around and made suggestions for a late dinner that night plus activities for the next day.
The room was quiet, clean, romantic, cozy and the bed was very comfortable. The two breakfasts we had were over the top. Egg and ham casserole, peach melba, skillet potatoes and a very tasty pastry. Hmmm
Looking forward to returning when we can plan our next trip to Nevada City.

Room Tip: The GiGi Room has it's own private entrance and is on the ground floor vry close to where you ca...

My wife, 3-yr old daughter and I stayed here over the weekend. The property is very well maintained and all rooms were renovated but still had plenty of the victorian era charm. Ruth, the innkeeper, is very kind and offered us wine in the afternoon and prepared delicious and hearty breakfasts. Nice backyard with a lawn along the creek that was perfect for our daughter. Easy access to the main drag in NC (across the highway overpass) and the highway is literally 30 seconds away. We had a great time!

A beautiful Victorian on a quiet street just steps away from the shops and restaurants of historic Nevada City. The grounds behind the house are a lovely place to walk, with trees, flowers, and a lawn that leads to the edge of the creek. Our innkeeper, Ruth, was the perfect hostess, and she encouraged us to help ourselves to the bottled water and sodas in the refrigerator, the fresh-baked brownies in the kitchen, and the limoncello in the parlor. Breakfast was phenomenal. We learned later that Ruth had been a professional chef. To cap it off, we enjoyed a lively conversation with the other guests at breakfast in an elegant but relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

We needed to take a trip to the NEvada City area at the last minute and were lucky enough to find the Deer Creek Inn. This property is just lovely. The buidling itself has a wonderful history and the property overlooks Deer Creek which is both peaceful and beautiful. THe breakfast was delicious and the hospitality was warm and personal. I would highly recommend this B & B!

This was our first B&B experience! Miss Ruth was warm and welcoming. We stayed in Gigi's room which had a private entrance and view of Deer Creek! I loved walking and soaking my feet while sipping wine! Breakfast was a quiche, fresh fruit from the farmer's market, roasted potatoes, and a wonderful pastry with berries from the farmer's market! Love that our first experience was Deer Creek Inn!

Deer Creek Inn was a wonderful surprise as our first b&b experience and our expectations were far surpassed. When we first arrived, we were greeted at the door by our wonderful hostess Ruth and then given a short historical tour of the house, completed with a delicious glass of wine. We were amazed at how well this historical home had been restored while still preserving the beautiful charm of it's age. We stayed in Ida's Room above the kitchen; it was immaculate and the bed was very comfortable. The grounds are meticulously maintained and the creek is so peaceful to sit by and enjoy a glass of wine. It is a particular benefit that The Deer Creek Inn is within walking distance to an excellent selection of restaurants, shops and night life. Each morning, Ruth provided us with an ample amount of fresh, locally roasted coffee and we were thoroughly impressed by her expert culinary skills and wide array of breakfast. It was especially perfect for us because I can't eat egg dishes and there was a fresh and delicious alternative for me to have every single morning. It was also nice to talk with Ruth about the area and the history and also with the other guests over breakfast. We loved our experience so much that we will be back to stay at the relaxing Deer Creek Inn in the gorgeous Nevada City.

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.
