We went to this 'Resort' because other friends were staying there. It was an 'interesting' stay if you have the right mind for it. We liked it because it was near where we were hunting for gold on private claims. This in is also next to the historic Sierra County Courthouse which has a great display of nuggets. The bed... More

I stayed in Room 3, the accessible bedroom that overlooks the river. The room was absolutely lovely and very clean. I appreciated the fridge and microwave, as well as the comfortable furnishings. GREAT bed! And there is nothing like the sound of the river to soothe the soul. Also as a woman traveling solo, the room felt secure to me.... More

We stayed with another couple in the largest cabin in Aug. 2014. The floor in the bathroom was rotted and I had to ask for a board to put over it so we did not fall through the floor getting in and out of the tub/shower. Plenty of fresh towels and the lady and her daughter were very nice....but...on their... More

My wife and I wanted to get away from the hustle and bustle of the City for Valentine’s Day and Downieville definitely fit the bill. There are only three places to stay in town during the off-season and two of them were right next to Highway 49, so we chose the Downieville River Inn as it was off the main... More

We had a room with kichenette and a daybed. I didn't sleep on the daybed, but it was pretty small. We didn't cook, but it was good to have utensils, plates and coffee makers so that we could make breakfast and pack our lunches. We only saw a lady at the reception when we checked in, never saw them again.... More

This inn received high ratings so I booked 2 rooms for a family reunion to take place at the Gold Days festival in Alleghany. We were so pleased with our rooms! Diane, the owner, was very helpful during the booking process through check-out. She gave us personal service that was refreshing. Our rooms each had a bathroom, complete with hair... More

My whole family (numbering almost thirty and ranging in age from 83 to 15 months) just spent the week at the River Inn and we had a wonderful time! The innkeepers couldn't have been lovelier or more accommodating and helpful, and Downieville, though a quiet little town, offered something to each of us, from fishing to hiking to mountain biking....

Nothing felt better then the pool at the Downieville River Inn after doing the Downieville Downhill bike run! Rebeccca and Eric were awesome! From having a wine and cheese tasting for my brothers birthday, to the homemade chocolate muffins in the morning, Rebecca went above and beyond the call to ensure that we had a special time with them.

We were re-visiting the Bay Area from Tampa and couldn't fly all that way without spending some time in Downieville where we frequently camped when we lived in California. The inn was a terrific place to stay! The rooms were very clean and cozy and the hosts were very welcoming. We enjoyed a beautiful swimming hole nearby where we spent... More
