“Amazingly charming old Victorian B&B w a delicious Breakfast”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

My wife and I stayed there for a night in mid June this year and had a wonderful time. Ruth was very nice and hospitable and made us feel right at home. The complimentary Brandy was a charming touch (from the old days apparently). The house is in great shape and didn't have any funky musty smells that we'd read some of the other B&B's in the area having. Breakfast was delicious. Coffee was strong and plentiful. If I went back, i would stay there again in a heartbeat.

My husband and I just spent two days in Nevada City to attend a wedding. The bride recommended we stay at the Deer Creek Inn. We truly enjoyed our stay. Ruth is the manager and makes you feel right at home. She is also a superb chef providing a scrumptious breakfast each morning. We stayed in Ida’s room which was very comfortable and quiet. The grounds are nicely kept with several spots where you can sit, relax and gaze over the beautiful creek located next to the inn. We would definitely stay at the Deer Creek Inn again. Thank you for a wonderful experience Ruth.

My wife and I stayed here for a nearby wedding that happened to fall on our wedding anniversary. Deer Creek Inn was a lovely place to spend a romantic weekend in the charming town of Nevada City. I loved the beautiful Queen Anne style Victorian house which was immaculately maintained by Ruth, the owner who took over the B&B about a year ago. Between shopping and eating in town, I got to spend a few relaxing hours in the zen-like backyard lawn reading a book on the bank of the Yuba river. Ruth also kept us very well fed with tasty breakfasts. I strongly recommend this B&B.

The Victorian home ( Deer Creek Inn) is as if you took a step back in time. The lush lawn with clean gardens leads you to the small creek with lawn chairs..Why were we so stressed? We can't remember. Ruth is an amazing cook with an abundance of foods for breakfast and 5:00 happy hour is just that>Happy. Thanks Ruth, you are on top of your game. Peter and Judi from Chico

My husband and I went to Nevada City to check out several places to stay during our son's wedding. We walked into the DCI and fell in love. AND, we're are not B&B types. Loved the location on the creek, sitting in chairs on the creek bank, and the interiors were immaculate. Ruth our hostess was inviting and accommodating. We ended up spending the night just because we hated to leave! Didn't have time for breakfast, alas, but the offerings sounded incredible. Rooms are spacious, exceedingly clean, and several have nice size balconies.

Thank you, Ruth, for a memorable stay at your fine establishment!

Room Tip: Try Sarah's room. Spacious and has a lovely balcony.

I had booked the Deer Creek Inn as a gift for my husband. Neither of us had stayed there before, but it had been rated well. I thought it was worth a try. It so was!!! Ruth is the Manager and she is AMAZING!!! The room was really nicely appointed and extremely comfortable. There were delightful brownies at night - soooo good!!! Ruth's breakfasts were OUTSTANDING!!! I wanted to lick the plate. Ruth helped us figure out what we wanted to do while we were there and she helped us book reservations. She is an absolute gem!!! The Inn is also close to downtown, within walking distance. The grounds are lovely and well kept. I highly recommend the Deer Creek Inn. We have already booked our next visit and I am counting the days...
