We were staying near Sierra City for a friend's wedding and were lucky to discover the High Country Inn. The grounds are beautifully well kept and the creekside hammock is a delight. Our room was clean and well appointed and the bathroom was great. As soon as we arrived Bob was very helpful directing us to some nearby hikes. There... More

Thank you for staying with us during your recent visit to Sierra City and it is always gratifying when our guests take the time to review our Inn after their visit with us. The Hammock along the river is truly a place to close your eyes and either fall asleep or dream of things that might be some day! Thanks... More

I came upon this little slice of heaven because there wasn't any rooms left at the lodge in Calpine for Comatopia a music festival I was attending. Thank goodness! If not I never would have found High Country Inn. I've never left a place more rested and refreshed. Thanks Bob! Blessings, Chauna

I was glad to have seen you out on the Hammock along side of the Yuba River really just enjoying the peace and quiet of the Inn.

We stayed in the Howard Creek room for three nights and loved every minute. The view from the room takes in the lovely pond behind the inn, the birds enjoying the cracked corn and peanuts Bob the innkeeper feeds them, and the beautiful hills in the distance. Our room even had a great little deck for late-afternoon admiring of the... More

Stay: really all positives - very comfortable home, beautiful grounds with lots of wildlife, and nice common areas. But Bob (the host) goes all-out on the breakfast - fresh fruit, just-baked bread, savory omelets, and delicious sides.
