The Deer Creek Inn is one of the best B&Bs we've been to. The building itself is charming and exceptionally well cared for. The grounds are quiet and well maintained, and they border Deer Creek. The yard is a great place to sit and relax. The hostess, Ruth, makes her guests feel welcome and at home. Breakfast is a gourmet... More

This is the B & B to go to! The Victorian is beautiful inside & out. The rooms are comfortable. Ruth, the innkeeper makes you feel at home. An easy walk to the city's main street area. Only downside, we had to go home. We will definitely stay here the next time we are in Nevada City.

What a perfect get away. This lovely Victorian B&B is located away from the hustle and bustle of Nevada City's Main Street and is situated directly alongside Deer Creek. Sitting on one of the park benches along side the creek shaded by mature trees and listening to the water bubbling by, you get lost in your thoughts. We stayed in... More

If you like B&B gems, this one should be on your list. Lovely restored Victorian, within walking distance from downtown, beautiful welcoming garden with natural creek invite guests to relax and unwind. Delicious breakfast served on the patio in summer. Warm and engaging host. We highly recommend this B&B.

Had a wonderful Bed and Breakfast experience at the Deer Creek Inn in Nevada City. It's a lovely old Victorian home with authentic furniture and beautifully maintained grounds. You are within walking distance of shops and restaurants, as well as hiking trails. The innkeeper, Ruth, goes out of her way to make this an experience you will want to repeat... More

Our stay was awesome. It is a lovely well appointed, period decorated B&B. Ruth, our host, was extremely pleasant, helpful, friendly and personable. We felt very welcomed and everything was perfect. The gourmet breakfast was excellent, served on the lovely outdoor deck/patio. Highly recommend this lovely home. Hope we can visit again.

We were fortunate to have the attention of no less than 3 innkeepers - Chuck, Elaine and Ruth! On arrival we were received very graciously by Chuck who showed us around this immaculate inn with justifiable pride and treated us as old friends. We stayed in Sheryl's room which was very comfortable and we enjoyed using the balcony. We slept... More

It is rare to get the whole experience of both a beautiful, well-maintained, quaint facility AND excellent food. Ruth is a fantastic cook and great host. The Breakfast on Sunday was to DIE for. Fritatta, fresh fruit and thick wild oat pancakes. Even more we got hooked on Ruth's home made peanut butter chocolate chip cookies warm out of the... More

Great location. Walking distance to everything. Cleanest place I have ever stayed in, bar none. Ruth is welcoming, easy to talk to, a great cook, and, as a former restauranteur in the area, has all the recommendations you could want. The rooms are spacious, and the grounds are terrific.

Deer Creek Inn is a charming place to stay in Nevada City, Calif. Ruth, the innkeeper, is very responsive to any need and has great suggestions. Her breakfasts are absolutely "to die for". The temperature was quite high during our visit and the hours in the afternoon by the stream in the garden were delightful and cool. With an easy... More
