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

We stayed 2 nights and had a wonderful time. The room was perfect for us with 2 Queen beds, very clean and pretty. I loved that we could walk anywhere - my husband and son fished under the bridge, my son and I waded in the river, and when it got very warm there was the swimming pool - warm... More

We are long term regulars.The largest inn in town & the only one with a heated pool and sauna. The rooms are quaint with options for a full kitchen. You can rent just a room, add a kitchen, or add a second bedroom. It has a real dining room for guests to socialize & have breakfast (We enjoyed making our... More

My family has visited Downieville for AGES. To start off, I have visited Downieville every year for my entire life, and I am 15. We started off staying at a place called the Lure, but there was a lice epidemic, so that was out. When I was about 5, we started staying here. It was the best place possible. We... More

My husband and I were travelling through the Gold Country in California, enjoying the charming towns that enhance the beautiful Sierras. Downieville, we learned, could have been the capitol of California. I think it is a good idea that it came in second. Although our room at the River Inn was quite clean and had a lovely balcony overlooking the... More
