Katherine and Jim made us feel like we were at home and did everything possible to make us feel comfortable and cozy, from a sign of Happy Anniversary on our door to a spectacular breakfast with fresh local oranges too! The bed was SUPER comfy and the room was very clean,... More

We did an overnight stay at the Emma Nevada House. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would highly recommend it for anyone looking for a Bed & Breakfast in Nevada City. Jim and Katherine, the innkeepers, did everything possible to make our stay there absolutely wonderful! The breakfast Katherine cooked was absolutely amazing and both Jim and Katherine are fabulous hosts!... More

My sister and I spent the weekend at the ENV B & B and truly enjoyed ourselves. The hosts are very gracious and made our stay great. The room was lovely and had a fireplace and a large old fashioned tub with feet. The breakfasts were wonderful, almost gourmet. Nevada City is a great place to visit and there are... More

We spent a rainy weekend in Nevada City at Emma Nevada House. It couldn't have been a cozier place to be during the stormy weather. We stayed in the Empress' Chamber room, which was very comfortable and beautifully decorated. Our hosts were very solicitous, and breakfast was excellent. Finally, you couldn't have a better location -- a short walk to... More

Excellent in every way!! We stayed in the Empress' Chamber room, which was very lovely. The innkeeper, Kathryn, was super friendly and helpful. The place is very clean, beautiful and charming. And the breakfast was wonderful too!

Our first trip to the quaint, beautiful town of Nevada City! We were lucky enough to book the Empress Room in the Emma Nevada House, a Bed and Breakfast HAVEN in town. Katherine and Jim have truly created an elegant and comfortable stay. Katherine is like an angel on earth. From the warm greeting, to the goodbye...everything was perfect. The... More

This past weekend we attended the Wild and Scenic Film Festival in Nevada City and stayed at the Emma Nevada House for the fourth time. As always, it was wonderful (both the festival and the B&B). The hosts Jim and Katherine are friendly and very accommodating of their guests. Food is great as are the rooms. It is a perfect... More

The Emma Nevada house offers a special kind of welcome, from the decor in the living area to the kind and highly accommodating innkeeper. I was met in the inn's kitchen and felt immediately at home. My room was very comfortable, with a queen-size, memory foam mattress; thoughtful amenities; and a claw-footed bath tub which begged me to sink in.... More

The Emma House is rich with hospitality, charm & warmth. The innkeeper is extremely generous, kind & hospitable & went over and above to accommodate our needs and unusual requests. Upon check-in, I mentioned my gluten free status when I was offered cookies. She immediately went on a mission to bake me special gluten free cookies and have them ready... More
