This is so worth a detour! A small town with great small shops, a few bar/saloons and this amazing B&B. Well it's more a museum. A house full of old treasures that you normally only see in museums or occasionally a piece of furniture at someone's house, but this is so amazing, so beautiful and so many interesting objects. And... More

During a leisurely trip along Hwy. 49, we stayed overnight at this gorgeous Victorian inn. We arrived in the mid-afternoon and were warmly greeted by the innkeepers, Will and later Maria, who was busy preparing hors d’oeuvres for that evening’s happy hour. Will escorted us to our spacious “honeymoon suite”, Room 5, which was beautifully furnished in antiques and tastefully... More

Stayed here for my first anniversary just to get away for the weekend before heading to "apple hill". The wife and I love 1800's California Gold mining and pioneer history and this place is basically a museum. There is so much to look at in the form of art, antiques and overall decor and it is all very charming. The... More

I booked the room by phone, and it was nice to hear the owner voice and recommendation about the road and the traffic. We arrive a little late, but Mr. Will greeted us like we were family! Showed us the gorgeous room, and offered me a nice cognac, while chatting about his Inn, and etc. The beds were very comfortable,... More

I felt like I had stepped back in time when I first entered the American River Inn! We were greeted by Maria and her husband Will with a friendly smile and we felt very welcomed! The atmosphere in the B&B is Victorian and full of antiques in every room. Be prepared to share each others company as most of the... More

The upside is that this is a renovated historic inn with lots of atmosphere. The rooms, bathrooms, and inn in general were spotless. There was a wonderful spread of hors d'oeuvres at about 5:00pm the day we checked in. The breakfast was home cooked and excellent. The inn keepers (Will and Maria) are delightful and take pride in their Inn.... More

We stayed three nights before conquering the 63rd Jeepers Jamboree Rubicon Trail adventure. The hotel was a classic historic B&B. The owners made our stay even more enjoyable with their stories, cooking & serving a great breakfast and fun afternoon offering of wine & cheese. The room was clean with beautiful antiques. We were hoping for an encounter with its... More

The American River Inn is a historical inn in the middle of Georgetown. This inn has all the classic amenities and appointments of a traditional B&B. We didn't get a chance to enjoy the wine hour but it takes place between 5:30 and 7. Breakfast was good- filling, nicely prepared and served with lots of hospitality. The bed was a... More

This was our first experience in a bed and breakfast. We had a very nicely decorated, comfortable room. The historical hotel is tastefully decorated in time period decor. The hostess was very helpful and knowledgeable. They had a wine and hors d'oeuvres time in the evening and a wonderful breakfast in the morning. The beds were comfortable and the whole... More

This stay was the second of a 2 night trip to Georgetown. Located in a quiet and comfortable little town, it was quite the place to shoot photos and ghost hunt. The Hotel itself was furnished beautifully. The staff was very friendly and it include a delicious little breakfast. Even though I didn't feel or record any spiritual moments, it... More
