The Inn is in a marvelous location, high in the Sierra, near a gorgeous river (Yuba), mountain lakes, buttes, history and more. Walking distance to the tiny town of Sierra City, but secluded and quiet. Cabin with kitchen was terrific -- old-fashioned in a really nice way. All in all, a terrific place to spend a few nights.

My husband and I stayed with our dog at the Yuba River Inn for two nights and that definitely was not enough. The place is just marvelous, the cabin was clean, well stocked and super comfortable, all the charm made it priceless. We slept like babies, so comfortable and quiet, coffee in the morning on the front porch, enjoying the... More

We stayed for three nights with a group of friends and had a wonderful time. The cabin was well stocked and clean and there was a superb HUGE new deck we could hang out on overlooking the river. Can't wait to go again. FYI The deck would be great for someone planning a wedding

Peaceful and near river, although it's a steep downhill walk. Cabins are cozy and clean. Owners are always available as they live on site and happy to chat! Close to lakes and historical gold mining sights. Easy Walking distance to Sierra City.

Quiet, peaceful, beautiful, relaxing. Forces you to happily unplug and unwind, and will realign your chakras! The brothers who run this respite will make you feel so welcome and at home, you'll find yourself never wanting to leave. Honestly, the cost is beyond reasonable for the beautiful break you will experience. Clean, private, good sized cabins, five minutes to lakes... More

If you're traveling east on Hwy 49, the Yuba River Inn lies on the tail end of Sierra City, which is not too far from the nose-end of town. This neck of the country is absolutely stunning. Tall trees, beautiful rivers and lakes (even in a drought) and impressive spikes of mountains at every turn. ANY inn, b&b or hotel... More

We went with a group of people and rented all the cabins out for our group. For a campground the word clean seems like an odd choice. This place was so well kept and clean! We had the smallest of the cabins and it was so cute and comfy. They have 2 bedrooms, duplex styles all with kitchens. Ours did... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Yuba River Inn. We stayed in one of the smaller, more rustic, log cabins that did not have a kitchen. We loved the authentic rustic nature of the place. Yes, the floor sloped in one corner and there was bare bulb lighting, but for us, that just added to it's charm. We were very... More

Well, we just got home from our annual vacay in Sierra City and stayed for 8 nights at the Yuba River Inn again. It is our favorite place up here and so beautiful with all the pine trees. You can just hear the river from the cabins. We had our favorite little cabin again. It was so peaceful that my... More

We vacation here at least once or twice a year, and always enjoy ourselves. The cabins are comfortable and in beautiful wooded setting. A short walk thru the woods and you are at the rivers edge. Lots of great hiking and lakes near by, as lovely as Tahoe but no crowds!
