Stayed here for an anniversary mountain biking getaway. The room was awesome. We had a deck overlooking the river shaded by a giant walnut tree that hid the inn across the river. Liz (one of the owners) was very friendly and addressed me by name every time she saw me. The free coffee in the morning was delicious (that's not... More

My family and I come here a lot (almost every year) during Fall Break. The Carriage House Inn has amazing owners, who are very friendly and supportive, and the rooms are great! It is right by the river, so you can sit outside and enjoy the peaceful mornings and afternoons. Also, it is located right downtown Downieville. During the off-season,... More

I have travelled through Downieville many times. It is a small town with nice people and one really good restaurant (La Cocina De Oro). But I never wanted to stay the night. After a long day of mountain biking, instead of driving home to Walnut Creek we decided to see if there were any openings at the Carriage House Inn;... More

We had a great overnight stay at Carriage House Inn. We sleep all night with the river flowing outside the door, it was the best sleep ever. Liz, the owner, is very accommodating and supper friendly. We were greeted with coffee and muffins in the morning. Liz had many recommendations for things to do in town. We will recommend the... More

We spent a night at the Carriage House Inn between two days of awesome downhill at Downieville. Our host, Liz, was very friendly and helpful. The rooms are lovely, most with picturesque views. It's quiet and well-appointed. I would go to Downieville just to stay at the Carriage House, although the beauty of the area is irresistible and the hospitality... More

The Carriage House Inn is a gem in downtown Downieville, right on the Yuba river, only steps from hiking and biking trails, as well as restaurants and old fashioned bars of the Old West. The rooms have all been remodeled and upgraded recently with very comfortable beds, refrigerators and large flat screen TVs. We stayed in Room 3, with a... More

Arrived late (6pm) without a reservation (on a Harley) and were warmly greeted by Liz. Room #7 overlooks the bridge and the river, has a king size bed and a flat screen TV. We didn't even mind walking down the hall to shower (the room has a sink and toilet). Liz got us ice for our cocktails and advised us... More

We enjoyed a delightful two nights here. Our room was overlooking the Downie River and was wonderful for sitting on the balcony and reading our books. If it had not been off-season think it would have been very noisy. Window of room next to our balcony was the sink next door. Luckily, there was only a person in it one... More

We decided to stay at the Carriage House Inn for the first two nights of our vacation. This will become a yearly tradition. Liz was an amazing host and was willing to do anything to make sure we were happy and comfortable! The room had a balcony with the most comfortable rocking lawn chairs (with ottomans) overlooking the beautiful river... More

For our first visit to Downieville we selected the Carriage House Inn based on the glowing reviews and were not disappointed ... in fact we are already planning another trip next month! We called ahead and based our stay on the availability of rooms with balconies overlooking the river, but frankly all the rooms are wonderful ... clean, neat, quiet... More
