We stayed two nights because we wanted to explore the area. We stayed in the Calamity Jane cabin which is a one bedroom cabin with a queen bed and loft. The cabin has an adjoining cabin with a shared door that locks and has its own entry if you have a bigger group. All the amenities were included, hair dryer,... More

The Gingerbread House Bed and Breakfast is one of the nicest places I have ever stayed at. I am so glad I found this little Gem on the internet. I research extensively before I make any decisions and this B and B did not disappoint in any way...in fact it exceeded all of my expectations. I stayed upstairs in the... More

Such a charmingly wonderful experience here! Karen really knows how to add personal touches that made our stay memorable, comfortable, and delightful! I wish we could have stayed longer (one day/night out of our two week journey). It was so quaint, and just a block from town...perfect nook as if it were out of a book...

Awesome service and cabin, the loft was cozy and comfy. Karen was so nice and attentive to every detail, whatever you need, it's in the room even breakfast. Couldn't have been any better, I would stay there again!

The Gingerbread House is the most gorgeous bed and breakfast I have ever seen. The attention to detail in the home itself and in the service is outstanding. This is the most clean and elegant place to stay in Virginia City.

We arrived in Virginia City needing a place to stay, and were extremely lucky because of a cancellation that Karen had two vacancies. The facilities are first class, the location is ideal, and Karen is a gracious host. We enjoyed talking with her about her experiences and our visit to the area.

We rented both cabins which are connected. Very comfortable and well stocked for breakfast. Delicious homemade treat in the morning and the owner brought us some fresh fruit also. Located just off the Main Street so easy walking distance. Very pleasant stay.

I live in Montana and my wife and I wanted to visit Virginia City to see a play at the Opera House. Rather than staying in the near by town of Wisdom, MT, we elected to stay at the Gingerbread House. Unfortunately, a week before our stay our brother-in-law , who lived in Texas, passed away. The funeral would make... More

Thank you, Karen, for a great experience for my husband and myself during our three nights in Virginia City. We stayed one night in the Calamity Jane cabin, and two in the Bickford cabin. Both cabins were wonderfully appointed and came with a continental breakfast - a great, lazy way for this couple to start each day! Karen was readily... More
