Such a sweet place. Very welcoming owners, delicious 2 course breakfast. We had the largest room in the front, perfect. No noise from the street. Cute yard and decorations. The best! Been to a few B n Bs and this one was 100% excellent.

I've resisted leaving this review for quite some time but truth be told, they earned this review. At the first introduction we were treated OK. We were shown the cookie jar in the kitchen and paid for the room at which time he wrote down my credit card number in addition to swiping it. (Cancelled that card) Upstairs he shows... More

We have stayed at Elam Biggs several times over the last 3 years. The rooms are very clean and nicely decorated with comfortable beds. I really enjoy the treat of taking a hot, luxurious bath in the claw foot tubs. (Don't forget to get your bubble bath scented at local store Yuba Blue) There are many areas to enjoy a... More

This house is full with old staff, they where not allowed to leave the luggage in the room between 9 and 11 so we are leaved at 9 o' clock in the morning. The breakfast was very poor and the coffee very bed. I m not recomanded this place!

I don't think I would ever want to stay anywhere else when visiting Grass Valley. The care and detail of each room is impeccable and unique. The decor is true to the period w/nooks, shelves and niches displaying pieces to inspect and admire. The gracious hosts; Barbara and Peter went out of their way to make our stay memorable. The...

We stayed at Elam Biggs on a wine tasting trip to the Grass Valley area. We sought a comfortable B&B within an easy walk of the city center tasting rooms and restaurants. Elam Biggs proved to be a very nice choice. Numerous restaurants and 4 tasting rooms are within 4 or 5 blocks of the inn. Rooms are nicely decorated... More

Wonderful B&B Experience. If you enjoy the experience of staying in an authentic owner operated B&B then you will enjoy your vist with Peter and his wife Barb. Wonderful hosts who make one feel welcome from the moment you enter. Comfortable rooms, outstanding breakfasts, and with a little encouragement, Peter may even provide an awesome magic performance. The B&B is... More

While looking for a place for my husband and I to stay overnight in Grass Valley, I found a great experience. My first clue was navigating the website and calling Peter for a room reservation. He informed me that he did not use the internet and therefore, there would be no email confirmation after I provided him my credit card.... More

On the last night of a week-long trip to the Gold Country, we stayed at this beautiful Victorian bed & breakfast inn in Grass Valley. As soon as we arrived, we were warmly greeted by Peter, our genuinely friendly and very hospitable innkeeper. Because we were staying only one weekend night, we originally had reservations for the Gold Center Room.... More
