My family of 5 (2 adults, 3 daughters ages 7, 10, 13) stayed in a cabin for 2 nights. The cabins are refurbished miners' cabins and, from the outside, are very rustic looking. We were a little nervous to see the inside, but were pleasantly surprised. The cabin was huge, with 2 queen beds, a fold up cot, and a single bed in a separate room next to the bathroom. My girls were thrilled to have their own beds, a rarity when traveling with 3 children. The cabin was larger than any hotel room we stayed in, with lots of open space. The shower was prefab and small, but worked fine. The entire cabin, including the bathroom, was immaculately clean. There were 4 windows, a window fan, and a ceiling fan, which kept us comfortable. It was fun staying within a living history museum. We saw actors in period costumes in the restaurant and walking around the town, and they interacted with the kids, really drawing them into the history of the mining town and what life was like for the pioneers, especially for kids their ages. Check the dates--the living history museum is not open every day. We were lucky to have booked a Friday night stay because the actors were only there on the weekend. I would recommend a Friday night stay, with all day Saturday in Nevada City. You can pan for gold at the mining museum, and take the Alder Gulch railroad into Virginia City. It was fun!
