My husband and I were recently part of a touring bicycling group who stayed with Bob at his wonderful Inn. We arrived soaked and freezing cold after being caught near Gold Lake in a severe thunderstorm. Bob welcomed us with coffee and homemade cookies, helped us clean and dry our clothing, and got us situated in our lovely rooms. The... More

This Inn is very special in many ways. It is a beautiful setting in the high Country- with colorful flower filled gardens and rolling lawns,a peaceful pond with ducks, glorious views of the Buttes which are especially spectacular at sunrise, fastidiously kept rooms, a two course breakfast that surpasses most Bed and Breakfast Inns with an actual wild bird and...

My wife and I celebrated our 17th Anniversary at the High Country Inn. It was our first time here, but we are already planning our next visit. We stayed in the upstairs' Sierra Buttes room; what an amazing view of the Buttes! And the sounds of the Yuba River rushing by - incredible! The Inn's hosts/owners, Bob and Betty, took... More

We were a group of five very wet cyclists, caught in a hail storm. Bob washed our clothes, drove us to dinner in town, made a top notch breakfast at 6 AM so we could leave early. Very, very nice rooms and bathrooms. Comfy beds. Homemade cookies and hot coffee greeted us. We have been on a month long bicycle... More

We stayed one night in the Howard Creek Suite, which was at the end of the hall (we asked for the most private/quiet room). Upon arrival the electricity was off in the whole area and the owners were away (not a problem as most places have backup generators). We immediately made ourselves at home in the quaint suite. This is... More

Thank you for staying with us here at HCI. We do have a back up generator on the grounds but during that particular outage I was at a local Organic Farmers Market (more than a 40 mile round trip away) that is only open one day a week, getting fresh fruits and vegetables that I use in our breakfasts.

Listen to the babbling creek and admire the towering Buttes while enjoying a refreshment on a private patio deck. Watch the ducks on the pond, or the blue jays in the trees. Occasionally, admire a hawk circling over the towering trees. Slumber in a downy soft bed after a relaxing jetted tub soak. Enjoy the spectacular breakfasts that feed your... More

Beautiful large rooms with incredible views of the Sierra Buttes. Super comfortable & well cared for. Our hosts Bette & Bob Latta were always available to answer any questions & offer local advice. Perhaps best of all, were our incredible breakfasts. If you have not been to California's Lake Basin, you are missing some of the most beautiful country anywhere!

Thank you for your recent visit to High Country Inn and the Lakes Basin Area.

High Country Inn, just across the street from Bassets Station, off Hwy 49, is nestled in a glorious garden bordered by a private pond and the Yuba River.
