We were unsure what to expect at a Bread and Breakfast and the Emma Nevada House eased us in nicely. We stayed in the Empress' Chambers on the first floor but would have been happy in any of the downstairs rooms. They also have great rooms if you are traveling with children. The Bed and Breakfast is clean, attractive, and... More

As the original owner of the Emma Nevada House (opened in 1994), i am of course biased. My daughter visited from the East Coast this weekend and we stayed in Mignon's Boudoir this week as a treat. Kathryn and Jim, the managers, have done a wonderful job of creating and maintaining a marvelous, relaxing experience at the inn, plus a... More

We found the Emma Nevada on TripAdvisor about 2 days before we decided to travel for our 30th Anniversary. We were checking in at the tail end of the July 4th weekend and I'm sure they were quite busy, but they were so helpful. We were able to stay in Nightengale's Bower and the room was just lovely. We were... More

My husband and I visited the Emma Nevada house this July 4th weekend. What a beautiful Bed and Breakfast. During our many nights stay as other guests left we were able to see all but one of the rooms. This home is beautiful decorated and lovingly cared for. Our room was the Mocking Birds Nest an upstairs room with attached... More

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful long weekend at the Emma Nevada House recently. The home is beautifully maintained and thankfully has air conditioning as we visited on a hot weekend. Our room was nicely appointed and the attached bath had a nice shower unit. Our hosts Jim and Katherine were so friendly and helped us with reservations and... More

This is honestly one of the best experiences I have ever had staying as a guest in a B&B. The property is beautiful and charming and makes you feel like a guest in a friend's home. If you are looking to have privacy, feel enchanted and pampered; yet close enough to everything you want to see in Nevada City this... More

My husband and I stayed here on our wedding night and it was absolutely perfect. The hosts went above and beyond. When we arrived back late at night the room was spotless, dimly lit and there were rose petals on the bed. Just perfect. I had spend the night before the wedding here alone and felt so incredibly comfortable. The... More

What a charming B&B in a charming town. Exceeded only by the friendly helpfulness of Jim and Katherine. And the breakfast was terriffic. These folks have a lot of energy and it shows in the comfy details and ambiance of this fine old house. (and i'm sorry my husband ate all the afternoon cookies!) Definitely a be-backer! Thanks for your... More

Emma House, Nevada City CA, is a well-appointed old-style wooden manse in excellent repair. The rooms are spacious, charming, and clean, with a classical 19th century American West feel. The beds are comfy, the bathrooms are clean and modern-quaint, the towels are plenty and fluffy, the shower is great (mine was, anyway), and the water is plentiful and hot. Emma... More

This lovely Bed & Breakfast is filled with period furnishings and local art. The hosts are warm, friendly and eager to share stories about the home, the art, and the town. Breakfasts were scrumptious and served outside on the porch. I loved that so much of the house integrated with nature. We stayed in the very comfortable Mockingbird's Nest room.... More
