Elegant and unpretentious, the Red Castle Inn sits placidly fanning herself at the top of Prospect Street; a grand old lady who wears a thin veil separating the past from the present. This historic property is one of the first B&Bs in California, and as such, has had many years of experience to assure that your time here is spent... More

My husband and I have stayed at the Red Castle on many occasions since the early 1980s. I've lost count but think we have lodged there at least 20-25 times. In our opinion this inn is one of the best in providing a glimpse of the Victorian era. The owners have gone out of their way to decorate the inn... More

Great location, very good breakfast, charming hosts. Shared the adorable two bedroom garret suite with a friend and it was very nice and comfortable. It was an easy walk to downtown Nevada City. Mary Louise and Conley were very accommodating. It's a lovely old historic inn.

We had the distinct pleasure of staying at the Red Castle Inn on September 14, 2013. Mary Louise checked us in and was just as nice as could be. She informed us about all of the historical books in the parlor/living room and told us the time for breakfast in the am. The grounds are lush and peaceful with amp,e... More

This historic building sits in the heart of Nevada City. Each room is lavishly decorated with antiques. The decor is truly outstanding. But, and this is the deal breaker, the hosts treat their guests like annoying unwelcome visitors. I have never, repeat never, experienced such odd behavior by B&B hosts.

Ok, who cares that it's haunted? I slept like a baby, and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. My room was gorgeous and the food was so good, I felt guilty for not eating it all ( there was enough for about 4 people!) If this Inn is haunted, and I'm a bit sensitive to those kinds of things, I have to... More

I travel a LOT and this is honestly the best bed & breakfast I've ever visited. The property is so rich in history and antiques and artefacts that I could have spent my days just wandering around it. The gardens are stunning and being nestled amongst the trees was heavenly although only a 5 minute walk into town. Very steep... More

The nice thing about old houses is they're infused with character. The walls practically ooze with history. But you get unexpected and quirky results when you squeeze modern conveniences into a room that wasn't designed for them. We had the Forest View room where I woke up staring at the sink. The toilet was on the other side of the... More

Actually, the is about the seventh time we've stayed at the Red Castle Inn in Nevada City--that tells you about how we feel about the experience of staying there...and we hope to be making that eight times with our next stay in the future. We've stayed in four different rooms and all are beautifully furnished in an antique style. The... More
