Continuing with reviews from our recent trip to Northern California and the Pacific Northwest we stayed at the Emma Nevada House in Nevada City for one night. One of the difficulties in writing these reviews is that we all have our personal preferences and some things appeal to us more than others. Such is the case with the Emma Nevada... More

We loved our stay at Emma Nevada House. The Inn Keeper was the absolute best! The breakfast was wonderful. The location was perfect, we walked to town with ease. The house was breathtaking! Wonderful history and the decor was fantastic. Hope to visit again soon.

The absolutely delightful Emma Nevada House is set up the hill from the main shopping district of Nevada City, so it's a short walk down to restaurants and shops. My wife and I stayed here three nights in August in order to attend a family wedding that was held at my mother-in-law's house a few miles out of town. The... More

My husband and I stayed here last March for the Mardi Gras. The room was nicely decorated and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was nothing short of amazing. This is a very comfortable and inviting place to stay.

Set in the wonderfully historic town of Nevada City this stunning 19th century house has been meticulously restored, preserving period detail while providing 21st comfort. The interior decoration has been done with a style and flair that shows true skill. The result is a breathtaking house that is a joy to behold. The house is run by Katherine who worked... More

We loved Emma's Nevada House and innkeepers, Katherine and Jim Doolittle. What a lovely stay with terrific people, food, comfort and ambiance. Thank you for helping us celebrate our birthdays in first-class style.

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
