The B&B is a delight, there is not much in San Andreas, we attended a PAWs event and decided to stay a night or two to relax, but it is a useful stopping place from which to explore the area.
The Inn is a beautifully restored Tudor House on the Main road in San Andreas (you enter from the back), it was added to National Register of Historic Places in 1984. The dining area and sitting areas are downstairs and are decorated with all kinds of bric-a-brac, not really my taste but fine for a day or two. The sitting area is quiet and the hosts supply cookies and sherry for your stay, a nice touch. The breakfast is served in the dining area and was excellent both days we stayed. They accommodated vegan and vegetarian requirements wonderfully while we were there at the same time as serving a great meal to the rest of us. The breakfast was large (3 courses, fruit, soup and main) very tasty and provided us with a great start to both days.
Our room felt a little small by modern standards but was well decorated, clean and sparking. The bed was great and bedding felt wonderful, Wi-Fi worked well (it was quite fast), no complaints about the bathroom either, plenty of hot water in the shower. My only complaint would be about the small tube TV in the room, and upgrade to a larger flat screen would be nice.
The grounds are nice, in the back is a deck with chairs and table. We played music on the back deck (it is far enough away from the house so you will not disturb anyone if you are careful) and had a wonderful time both nights we were there.
Local eats are limited but quite good for the price, be prepared to drive to another town if you want fine dining.
Overall a great place to stay in Calaveras County.
