This stay was the second of a 2 night trip to Georgetown. Located in a quiet and comfortable little town, it was quite the place to shoot photos and ghost hunt. The Hotel itself was furnished beautifully. The staff was very friendly and it include a delicious little breakfast. Even though I didn't feel or record any spiritual moments, it... More

Its an enchanting place with really cool history.. But, unfortunately, the substitute hostess is very inhospitable. Maybe try to go when the owners are in? Cute downstairs and authentic furnished suites. Just bad customer service, I'm sad to say. As soon as I talked to her I wish that I hadn't. But aside from this, I can make no complaint.

We stayed at The Historical River Inn this summer and unfortunately had terrible customer service. It is a beautiful home and we could have really enjoyed our stay, but unfortunately dealing with the hostess (owners out of town) made it unbearable. She was extremely rude. It was like staying at someone's home who invited you, but really didn't want you... More

My wife and I stayed there back in 1980 or so, don't know the exact year but it was really wonderful to stay there. We were doing a photography assignment for college that required us to take photos at night without using a flash. I set my camera up on a tripod and took a picture of the front of... More

Came to Georgetown for a planned day of wine tasting in the surrounding area. The American River Inn is probably the most attractive building in this sleepy old mining town of about 1100 pop. Looking at all of the antiques which include all of the furnishings, you are taken back in time to the period which this Inn represents. The... More

We found out about the American River in through a Living Social deal. Since it was within a close distance and got good reviews, we decided to go for it. We were the only guests on Friday night and Will and Maria greeted is with a glass of wine. They are certainly talkers, who reminded us a bit of parents... More

This house is filled with lots of things to look at. The antiques are beautiful and there are tons of knick knacks everywhere. It was fun just walking around and exploring the house. The doors of rooms not being used are left open in order for patrons to check out the rooms. I really enjoyed looking at all the beautiful... More

We stayed here for two nights for the labor day weekend. The rooms are gorgeous and the service was unbelievable. Ms Betty was very understanding and helpful as we had two little boys with us. Our room opened into a porch and our boys loved going in and out of the room. The location of the inn is good, closer... More

We bought a living social voucher for this inn and were planning on making a trip sometime in December. But unfortunately, I was feeling under the weather on the day we were supposed to go to the inn and my husband called them and asked if we could postpone the reservation for some other time. The lady on the other... More

Beautiful house, lovely furnishings, warm hospitality.Georgetown is pretty skanky, but in a lovely location. Top tip - ask for the rooms away from the busy road. Top tip 2- eat at the buckeye. Top tip 3 - go to the lake at stumpy meadows, but avoid locals carrying handguns? Lovely hot tub in the garden. Dodgy karaoke across the road!
