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. We were fortunate to stay there for 3 nights in early June while participating in a guided Audubon High Sierra four-day birding tour. Our classmates were envious as we had the best... More

Another fine visit to this B&B again this year. Four nights for an Audubon field trip. Breakfast can be as early as you need it. Plenty of birds right around the place anyway. To avoid traffic on a Sunday drive back to the Bay Area, better stay over and leave Monday.

Our second stay at Bob's fabulous Inn. It is so gorgeous there that it is a bit difficult to pull ourselves away and go for a hike, but we did manage. All is terrific and the gardens are my favorite; so lovely and beautiful. Bob, you inspired me to give my garden some more attention and I had great fun... More

Thank you your recent visit to our Inn.

The Peony's are very close to opening now and that is always a... More

It is a beautiful place. Our room overlooked a pond and the California Butts. We finally did something we never do...relax!!! I would highly suggest this Inn for beauty and relaxation. Felt like we were in our own house. May take our daughter up later in the month.
