We often travel to Nevada City with family and have admired the B&Bs in historic houses along Broad Street. Traveling as a couple on this trip, we were happy to find an available room at the Parsonage and had an enjoyable stay including a very comfortable bed, friendly people and an excellent multi-course breakfast. The off-street parking is also a plus in this congested area. This really is an historic house, complete with the original steep staircase and some low ceilings and doorways...all part of the charm for us as able bodied folks who are fans of old houses, but something to keep in mind. My one error was choosing the front guest room with the shower we prefer instead of one in the back with a tub. I'd never thought of Nevada City as a late-night party town or of Broad Street as an all night thoroughfare, but our room was no place for light sleepers...something the manager might have mentioned when I asked what the difference was between the 2 available rooms. It was also disconcerting to step out of the shower and discover that there were only 2 small hand towels in the room. Weighing the smallish size and noise factor in our particular room and the missing towels against our experiences in similarly priced places I can't stretch beyond an "average" rating. A different room and a more attentive housekeeper would have earned a "very good" or possibly even an "excellent."
