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

The Elam Bigg's Bed & Breakfast Inn was the perfect place to start our journey as husband and wife. From the location in the beautiful Sierra Foothills, to the welcoming owners (Peter & Barbara) to the romantic and charming Empire room, our stay was perfect. For the details everyone looks for - the inn is clean, the rooms ooze charm,... More

Absolutley the perfect place to relax and enjoy the benefits of a slower-paced life. Beautiful gardens, quiet places to read and cozy bedrooms. They treated us like family with their kindness, warmth and service. The food is truly AMAZING...a breakfast to-die-for! We can't wait for the opportunity to go back and recharge our batteries! You won't be disappointed! Tammie &... More

The warm smell of home-baked cookies greet you as you walk in the door. Peter and Barbara are wonderful hosts and treat their guests like family. Their home is so beautifully decorated. We always feel so welcomed and cared for. We have been staying there several times a year for the last 15 years, thoroughly enjoying each visit. We have... More

This was one of the most comfortable experiences ever with a B&B. The house is just beautiful. The children had a fantastic time with the magician at breakfast time and we very much felt at home. The rooms are decorated so beautifully with lots of white lights, and were very tidy. They made our vacation most memorable. The decorations brought... More

This house was noisy and we could not sleep well. Stairs are steep and difficult to navigate. The room was not very clean and had a musty smell. Small bathroom with multiple stains. Food was just some sweet glop that was not healty or tasty.

After carefully reviewing our guests in Nov 2011 we find we had no one by that name "check in" at any time in Nov 2011. We at Elams always try... More

This was our second year to stay at Elam Biggs B & B. Wonderful homey atmosphere, fantastic breakfast and great personalized service. Rooms are spotless and very comfortable. You couldn't ask for better hospitality. We will go back next year.
