The Deer Creek Inn is perfectly located for strolling into Nevada City and joining the new Tribute Trail. Ruth provides a fantastic breakfast and very comfortable home for her guests. The South Yuba River area and Malakoff Diggins areas are great for exploring. If you return from Malakoff via Tyler-Foote Crossing Road, don't miss the turn onto Derbec Road to... More

I spent one lovely night and morning at Deer Creek Inn, and can't stop raving about it. It's a small, boutique B&B in the heart of Nevada City. Gorgeous building, interior design and location, a very appealing ambiance with large rooms, incredibly lovely, sweet and professional owner/staff Ruth... everything was better than I ever expected. Though so close to downtown... More

My boyfriend, two friends & I stayed at the Deer Creek Inn early October; we were performing at/attending a wedding at the Miner’s Foundry not 10 minutes walk from the Inn. We stayed a total of two nights (I WISH it was longer!!) in the conjoined rooms, Winifred (the suite with it’s own private balcony & a claw-foot tub IN... More

Breakfast was one of the best we've encountered at any B&B. The quality was excellent and the options were thoughtfully offered to satisfy virtually any palate or food group preference. Jon & Jane, Phoenix, AZ

My husband and I spent 2 nights at Deer Creek Inn on a recent visit to Auburn see my parents. Ruth was a delightful host and the Inn was beautiful and we had a wonderful stay. Ruth's delicious breakfasts each morning were unique and different each morning, but equally as delectable. We loved how close everything was in walking distance... More

We spent two nights at this great B&B and would recommend unreservedly. Our room (Sheryl's Room) was beautiful, big and had a fantastic balcony in the treetop, but I sneaked a peek of the other rooms too and they looked lovely too, so I don't think there's a bad one in the bunch. It's literally a minute's walk from downtown... More

My husband and I found Deer Creek Inn on the internet, not knowing where to go for a one night getaway from Sacramento area. We were very pleased with the entire stay, though short. Ruth, the host, greeted us and showed us around. She was very helpful with recommending where to dine. The breakfast was also excellent. The old Victorian... More

Spent 1 night at his lovely B&B in Nevada City. An updated, beautiful Queen Ann Victorian, with good sized rooms, close to everything in this "gold country" town. Ruth, the hostess and part owner makes you feel right at home. The home cooked breakfast was exceptional. Recommend without second thoughts.

Stayed at the Deer Creek Inn for our first time. Highly recommend staying here. The perfect B&B experience. Beautiful Victorian home. Ruth is a wonderful innkeeper, very friendly and she made an incredible breakfast. We'll be back.

Beautiful country inn only a few steps from wonderful shops and restaurants. Ruth, our hostess, greeted us with a friendly welcome, a history of the inn and tips on enjoying our stay. Sunday morning we awoke to a fabulous breakfast that Ruth had made. We cannot wait for an opportunity to return!
