We want to thank Bob and Betty for the wonderful two days that we spent at their High Country Inn! The grounds were beautiful, with a beautiful view from our room. The room was very, very clean and spacious and appointed very nicely. We loved their breakfasts, and they were fantastic hosts. We look forward to coming back often!

I stayed at the In in early July, intending to visit nearby Sand Pond and Upper and Lower Sardine Lake, a camping site from my early childhood. I was welcomed to the Inn, and a nice welcoming chat. My room had one of the most lovely views of the peaks of the Sierra nevada Mountains - beyond anything I could... More

I really enjoyed your review of your recent trip to California and to HCI. It was very obvious that you were on an adventure in our area after you were here as a small boy many years ago, 5 years old if I remember correctly, with this being only your first stop on the trip. You did pack in a... More

I am glad to hear that your glasses got back to you, it is always a hard swallow when I realize that I have forgotten something and then try to reconstruct in the mind, where did I have that last?

My husband and I stayed in the Butte Suite overnight so that we could go to a local outdoor music event. It was beautiful, with vaulted ceilings, a clawed foot tub, two sinks, a fireplace, refrigerator and microwave. There were even cozy robes for us to wear. The room overlooks the river and a pond. The grounds were amazing, we... More

This was our first stay here and already we are planning our next visit. Immaculately clean, extremely comfortable and well appointed. The property is so beautiful and serene that there is no need to go out for the day. The scenic vista and sounds of the river mesmerized me into bliss. The breakfasts and hospitality are superb. We loved it!!!

Thank you for staying with us and we are very happy to read your comments about your adventures while here.

We were in the Golden Pond room with a bay window adjacent to our bed that opened onto the Yuba River. The sound of the water rolling over the rocks made... More

My wife and I stayed last week; we've been staying there for ten years. The Inn is a beautiful, comfortable place to stay, in magical surroundings. We stay in the Golden Pond or the Sierra Buttes suite to get the river sounds in our side windows and an unbelievable scenic view of the Buttes out the back window. Bob seems... More

This was a great birthday present from my love to spend some time in nature at a beautiful location with some beautiful hosts. The place has easy access. It has a spectacular view of the Sierra Buttes and the hosts created a beautifully garnished breakfast. Thanks, Melissa

My wife and I spent 6 days at High Country Inn while our family was staying at the Packer Lake Lodge and Cabins.
