We have been staying here once or twice yearly since 2003. Originally it was a pretty standard B&B superbly located in Sutter Creek, a good base for visiting the ever improving Amador wineries. When the current owners, Robert and Athena, took over good changes began. They purchased the place next door and converted it into four lovely suites. Our favorite,... More

We had a lovely weekend at the Hanford House. It is contemporary with every comfort. We had heated bathroom floors and fine linens, along with a quiet balcony. The owner, Athena is delightful. She and her husband are hands on. The breakfast at their restaurant, Element, was superb. Our adventures in town were perfect, wine tasting and eating. Two favorites... More

We came across The Hanford House Inn by accent when our travels to elsewhere were disrupted. The staff were so accommodating and our room was gorgeous, very spacious, massive bed, lovely bathroom and balcony. I only wish we could stay longer.

Spent a wonderful two night stay in October. Was in the area for a bike ride and stayed at the Hanford House in Sutter Creek. What a great choice. The rooms are huge and very tasteful. They recently rebuilt the inn and now have a restaurant. Breakfast is wonderful. Will open for dinner soon. Does not feel like your typical... More

This was a work/social trip and we scurried around at the last minute to find a room. We are not fans of traditional B and B's or even small Inn's. We prefer a bit more privacy and like well appointed rooms that don't showcase dried flower wreaths. -) Anyway, this property is stellar in every way possible. To start with,... More

Our stay at the Hanford House Inn was a wonderful five star experience. The welcome was warm and genuine, the Inn is beautiful and everything including the luxurious bed and linen is top quality. This truly is a boutique hotel. The breakfast which is served in the restaurant is amazing, it is the best I have ever had! The Inn... More

We stayed here in December 2013 with some good friends. There are not enough great things I can say about our stay. We were in one of the cottage rooms. Our room included a fireplace, king size bed, heated floors in the bathroom, and fresh scones on our doorstep in the morning. The wine happy hour was also immensely delicious.... More

I'm not a fan of B&Bs. I'm never up early enough for the communal breakfast, I don't like lace and floral fabrics, and I prefer privacy when I'm on vacation. But Hanford House is fantastic! Might be one of the nicer places I've stayed. Lovely decor, nice clean rooms, good mattress and a huge bathroom. They reused some of the... More

I had the pleasure of eating one of the best breakfasts in my life recently at the restaurant attached to this hotel named Element. I do not see a place to just review the restaurant so I am doing it here. All I can say is that their Huevos Rancheros and Bggs Benedict (both very deconstructed and unique takes on... More

I'm not impressed easily, so that's why this B&B is rated 5 stars. The place has all that you would want. Rooms including bathroom are large, clean and very well constructed. I mean, crown molding, really in a hotel room. I stepped out of the modern shower and thought to myself the only thing this room is missing are robes... More
