I hesitate to add to the ratings because its always good to keep things a secret. But, this place has to be praised. If you are in the area forget staying anywhere else. The value and the experience were one of the best weeks we ever had.

This is a great place to stay when visiting the Gold Country of California. The prices are reasonable, the food is good and the rooms are very comfortable. Good restaurants are aplenty, nearby.There is a nice yard to sit in and enjoy the evening air. Unfortunately, it was quite warm when we were there, so we weren't able to enjoy... More

My wife and I just spent 2 glorious days at this lovely inn in Grass Valley. Having spent the past two days in equally nice B and Bs in Nevada City, our expectations were rather high. Peter delivered and then some. He is a wealth of knowledge about the area, a warm and gracious person that readily welcomed us into... More

Elam Biggs is such a beautiful & well maintained Victorian with lots of charm that is reasonably priced, within walking distance to the main town, off street parking & lets not forget the wonderful hosts. They had a cookie jar with yummy sugar cookies and each cookie had an Victorian stamped on it before it was baked. Everything is unique... More

We enjoyed our one-night stay at the Elam Biggs Bed and Breakfast Inn for the following reasons: friendly owners, a delicious breakfast, reasonable prices, a clean and roomy bedroom and bathroom, the lavender soap, a lovely yard and front porch, its proximity to town, off-street parking, lovely decorations and antiques, access to the refrigerator and beverages, the innkeepers' unpretentiousness, and...

First, I want to add that we had booked a room at a different B&B, which was sold 3 days before our arrival. That owner made arrangements with Elam Biggs. The place is beautiful, just what you'd expect from an old Victorian. Stuffed to the gills with antiquey things. We had the front room which had a large bed, great... More

Once again, our annual trip to Elam Biggs, (this time for our 5th Anniv) was marvelous...Peter is always the consummate host! We always feel as if we have come home! "Our" room is the large Empire room up front.Elam Biggs is very centrally located and you can easily walk everywhere.

Elam Biggs is a wonderful, delightful, relaxing experience! The house is beautiful, the rooms are tastefully decorated and full of interesting and fun items and pictures. It is spotlessly clean, welcoming and comfortable. Peter and Barbara are generous, friendly and accommodating. They make you feel like family from the moment you arrive. We love everything everyone else has already said... More

The Elam Bigg's Bed & breakfast Inn is a wonderful place to stay when you are in Grass Valley. This was our third time staying at this B & B and will will certainly stay here again when we are in Grass Valley. The B & B is full of charm and the owners (Peter and Barbara) are delightful hosts.... More
