“Leave your guns at reception please...”
Reviewed 24 June 2012

After two days of riding 300+ miles on the twisties of PCH and the mountain pass of 299, the warm reception at the Weaverville Hotel & Emporium seemed like stepping back into a pristine 19th century luxury hotel. Like a meticulously restored automobile, you can see the care taken in resurrecting this 150 year old hotel to its original form. The hotel is clean, packed with history, with some concealed modern amenities - but is true to the period. The owner quickly showed us around the hotel upon arrival, but sensing we were tired got us up to our rooms quickly. The beds are surprisingly comfortable and you could spend an afternoon exploring the historical books and memorabilia throughout the hotel, especially the sitting room. Upon arriving back from dinner, on the bed was a hand made truffle along with some literature about the area and the hotel. The owner obviously has a lot of pride as she should. For the money, I was blown away. I have stayed at 4 Seasons that showed less care. What a great place. Highly recommend it.

Room Tip: All you can eat ribs across the street! Use your Weaverville dollars!

The moment you walk up the stairs of this Victorian hotel you feel like you are taken back in time. It was reminiscent of the movie "Somewhere in time". In this classic film with Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour, a young man is transported in time by the fascinating vision of a beautiful woman he sees in an old portrait. The Weaverville has several black and white antique portraits on the walls. Portraits of people who may have lived in a place like this. The owners are very cordial and attentive. The little touches of the chocolates at night and the water in your room are very nice. My favorite part of the room was the champagne footed bathtub. As far as the furniture, it was very "antique" and authentique to the Victorian period. The let down was the shower. It reminded me of a shower that one would find in a small cruise ship cabin. It just did not live up to the rest of the antique appointments of the room. Also, because of the great reviews I read before going, I expected the turn down service to be a little more. The bed was turned down, but nothing else in the room was tidied up. The TV room downstairs has a very old TV set. We were fine with no TV in our room. It is part of the experience. But the TV room sofa did not feel as antique but more like very "old". There was s musty odor on the upholstery as you sat down on the small sofa.
Overall, it is a very nice place to stay. Considering that there are hardly any other places to stay in town and nothing much to compare.
We have stayed in other Victorian places which also included an amazing breakfast in the morning. I believe that this hotel could benefit from adding that to their stay. It is sweet that they give you a $10 voucher per stay that you can use in town but it does not take the place of a genuine bed and breakfast.
As far as the town, there is not much there. We ate at La Grange and the food was exquisite. The only really good place to eat. The nearby area is beautiful! Great lakes, rivers, hikes. It's a nature lover's paradise.
We visited a place about 20 mins. from the Weaverville Hotel called The Strawhouse. This was the highlight of our trip! The location is right on the river. The owners make all their food, which is outstanding. They brew their own coffee and they offer small bungalows right on the river where you can spend the night. You can wake up in the morning and take in the sight and sound of the river rolling down the creek.
We spent quite some time talking to the owners and they were a delightful couple. I would suggest that you look into this place as an alternate place to stay when you visit Weaverville. A totally different experience. Weaverville Hotel offers the charm of staying in an authentique Victorian home and The Strawhouse offers more of a nature inspired experience. Ideally, you could spend one night in the first and the rest in the second.
We stayed in Room 3 and it was very quiet and wonderful the first night. Unfortunately, there was a wedding next door the second night and the guests were very loud. But this is not the hotel's fault. It was just an unusual circumstance. This is the only reaon I cannot give a perfect score for Sleep quality. But the beds were fabulous and very comfortable.

Room Tip: Room 3 was very nice.

Unfortunately we spent there only one night on our way to Mt. Shasta. The hotel is beautifully restored and maintained. The living room is beautifully furnished with antiques, persian carpets, lamps and good books on the bookshelves. Our room had also a sitting area in front of a fireplace, antique furnishings and nice area rugs. In a niche of the room there was a "champagne" claw footed bath for taking a bubble bath (I did). The bed was wonderful, pillows soft and fresh, linen luxurious. There was a robe and slippers (slippers to take) and mineral water for us to drink and yummy chocolate truffles on a silver sea shell on the bed. The bathroom with shower was spotless and bright, the toilet paper was soft and toiletries were also nice. The price of the room included gym privileges (across the street) and a voucher for breakfast in a number of nearby restaurants. (Those were good as well). The owner, Jeanne muir was charming and her store, Emporium, next door has some interesting things and good quality casual clothing.

Anyone interested in historic Trinity County will love staying in this lovingly restored hotel. The owner's attention to detail is incredible! Each room is filled with treasures and furniture reminiscent of the 1800s. Rooms are spotless and the quality of the linens, bath products, etc. top notch. The bed linens are exquisite...silky-soft, beautiful lace-bordered pillowcases and sheets that have each been hand ironed! Most rooms have cozy gas-log fireplaces and lovely old soaking tubs, in addition to separate showers.

Then there are the little extras you don't find out about until you're there...the magnifying mirror in the bathroom, the complimentary slippers, the generous (and beautiful) complimentary chocolate truffles delivered to your room each evening, the special coffee, the comfortable parlor with its own fireplace and cozy chairs for reading, the lending library...so much to love! The owner, Jeanne, will do anything she can to make your stay memorable.

If you're anywhere in the area (about an hour east of Redding on highway 299), this is THE best place to stay. Actually, the hotel is so unique and charming that it's worth a detour.

Wow! Perfect ending to the perfect honeymoon!! After traveling through Yosemite, over to Monterey, up through San Fran and the Redwoods I wanted to surprise my wife on Valentine's day. Unbeknownst to her I found the Weaverville online and booked Bully Choop (Rm 3) for 14Feb12. Everything was quite literally perfect. Our room was extremely comfortable with antique furnishings. The rest of the building was beautiful and peaceful. Staff was excellent, helpful and the town of Weaverville nice and quiet. If given the chance we'll be back.

I've stayed here half a dozen times, mostly in the Trinity Lily room. An excellent, friendly, comfortable, and picturesque place, and right in the center of town, with the excellent La Grange restaurant across the street.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The hotel, originally built in 1861, was last rebuilt in 1880 after burning to the ground. We have painstakingly restored it to the original high ceilings and wood floors, attempting to recapture as much of the original charm as possible. Private bath with shower in all rooms, most also have claw-foot tubs with bubble bath. All rooms are air conditioned with ceiling fans; most also have gas log fireplaces, a welcome feature during our colder months. Prime retail therapy is to be had in our great little Emporium downstairs where everything from sterling silver jewelry to women's clothing to great gift items can be found. The emporium is open every day, 9am till 6pm except Sundays, 10am-6pm. That's every day of the year! ... more   less
