We stayed in Columbia for a night after a four day trip to Yosemite, as it was near enough to allow us to spend most of our last day in Mariposa Grove, and we were curious to see the old gold rush town. Harlan House is a very pretty old schoolhouse on the edge of town. It's in a very... More

Forget Movie Sets of the Old West. Columbia State Historic Park near Sonora, CA, has been used often enough as a real movie set, including Back To The Future III, The Long Riders, Little House on the Prairie, and even the classic TV show, Rawhide. Clint Eastwood walked the boardwalk to the Jack Douglass Saloon in Pale Rider; Christopher Lloyd... More

I have been returning to this beautiful Victorian Bed & Breakfast for consecutive 14 years! It is a true gem, complemented by wonderful scenery. Guests are treated to comfortable and tastefully furnished rooms with private bathrooms. The breakfast sumptuously prepared to your enjoyment. You will feel welcomed by the hostess, and find yourself surrounded by antiques that will take you... More

We had a project up in Columbia and so I have stayed at the Harlan House multiple times. Sam is a wonderful host. Breakfasts are wonderful and the rooms are well appointed. Nothing is fancy here, but you will feel cared for and get excellent value.

Like many of the bed and breakfast places in Britain that we have stayed in, this fine old house’s décor offered pleasant nostalgia by reminding me of my grandparents’ house. The 19th century house was perfect for our visit to Columbia’s reconstructed 19th century gold rush town. Our owner-hostess was gracious, friendly and helpful. She cooked us a delicious breakfast...

My husband and I just love this place. Sam (the owner) made us feel right at home. We stayed in the ‘Wine Cellar” and even though the average daily temperature high was 90 throughout our stay, the room was always nice and cool. The décor is very charming and beckons you come inside and relax. The bath room is huge... More

Sam is a very good host and she has a lovely home just a couple of streets away from the fascinating centre of Columbia with its old shops and businesses dating back in style to gold prospecting days. Watch the deer from one of the outdoor sitting areas or take a dip in the hot tub if you have the... More
