I stayed at this wonderful B&B over Labor Day weekend. Abigail, the innkeeper, is friendly and accommodating, and takes a great deal of pride in the inn - reflected right down to the smallest of details, including the delicious homemade cookies and Ghiradelli chocolates set out for guests, not to mention the Egyptian cotton towels, pressed bed linens, and delicate fleur-de-lis drinking glasses in the room from local shop, J.J. Jackson's. Mine was the Victorian Room in the back of the house. Quiet, sunny, and with a lovely tree view, it was adorned with a hand-carved four-poster bed, luxurious bedding, an armoire, a comfy chaise for reading, and porcelain claw foot tub. A word: Heavenly.
With the inn located slightly up the hill on Broad Street, the main avenue, you can easily walk anywhere in the small town - restaurants, coffee shops, clothing boutiques, specialty stores - but aren't bothered by traffic, which is great. Also, the three-course breakfast was to die for - freshly squeezed O.J., fresh local fruit (including organic strawberries), hot-from-the oven scone, and mushroom quiche with mixed greens and sausage. I could stay here again for the breakfast alone!
The Parsonage was a charming retreat for a relaxing getaway and exceeded my expectations. (Note: a prior reviewer mentioned there were lots of religious objects like crosses around the inn; however, I didn't see a one...). I would definitely stay here again and am already thinking about coming back in December for Nevada City's Victorian Christmas festivities!
