A delightful stay. My 12 yr old son and I stayed a night this last weekend and were impressed with not only the excellent food ( I'm kicking myself for not getting the recipe for the "fruit soup" ) but the friendly and accommodating service. We'll be staying here again.

We're so happy you enjoyed your stay. Thank you so much for taking the time to review. We'll make sure to email you the recipe for the fruit soup. Still of the opinion you were more likely brother and sister rather than mom and son! More

We stayed two days here while exploring the area and caving just a bit. It was a warm and inviting place to stay. The hosts were welcoming and very friendly. Our rooms were charming and full of Karen's favorite things. We all enjoyed it very much.

Two Thumbs and Four Paws Up!!! Great, tasty, stomach loving food. European décor and Victorian beauty transports you back to an era not forgotten. The welcomingly warm home appeal and botanical bonanza effortlessly transforms you. After meeting Grocho the Coon Cat you may never want to leave. Thank you Karen, Bill, Groucho and the rest of the gang!!!

Thank you Brian. We appreciate the kind words despite the fact that Groucho hasn't been quite the same since you checked out. The first thing he does whenever he manages to get in is to check out your room, no doubt to check if you've come back. And we agree, it was a fun gang while it lasted. More

This is a remodeled and still quaint Queen Anne Victorian with plenty of warmth and character. Bill and Karen K. bend over backwards (which is quite a stretch!) to make sure you have everything you need and then some. My favorite of the ten-room mansion is the Safari Room...I can't wait to come back! Dan the Solar Man

Thanks for the great review Daniel but I have to correct you on at least 1 point. We're getting too old to bend ..... at least backwards! So we've substituted "going above an beyond" . We look forward to a return visit in the near future. Hope you have an enjoyable Thanksgiving. More

Stayed in San Andreas for a few days and lucked into this place. This is a gorgeous old home that has been gracefully redone into a beautiful bed and breakfast. I stayed in the Soleil Room, right off the kitchen, which had an extremely comfortable bed and its own bathroom. Bill and Karen could not have been better hosts -... More

This place is excellent. Bill and his wife are just incredible hosts. Great rooms, food, and location. If you're headed to San Andreas, this is the place to stay. Bill was flexible in terms of making breakfast available for when it worked best for us. He also gave us tons of tips about where to eat and what to do.... More

Thanks for the great review David. Everything is kind of bass-ackward (sic) since the Butte fire, with an emphasis on midweek business travelers rather than the casual weekend fare we're used to. So glad to hear we're raising to the occasion. More

During a week-long trip to the Gold Country, we were fortunate to be given a gift certificate for a two-night stay at this wonderful Victorian bed and breakfast inn in San Andreas. As soon as we arrived, we were greeted by our warm and welcoming innkeepers, Karen and Bill. After a tour of the downstairs, Karen escorted us upstairs to... More

We travelled from Toronto to visit the "Toronto elephants" at PAWS - Performing Welfare Animal Society sanctuary and stayed with Karen and Bill at their lovely Robin's Nest. It was the perfect location to stay as the morning visits to PAWS were only a short 2-minute car ride away. It was only 20-minutes to Murphys for more restaurant choices in... More

I booked this B & B for a special treat as I was driving through this area. While the inside was lovely and true to the advertised pictures, the outside was not. The outside gardens and exterior were uninviting (and yes, I understand that they are not watering due to the California drought), but the gardens were unkempt and walk... More

Thank you for taking the time to write this review and the compliments.

We assume by debris that you are referring to the fact that we are in the process of repainting and that ladders and... More
