Reviewed October 18, 2013

This was our third stay at the Deer Creek Inn. This time my husband and I brought our adult daughter with us so we stayed in the two rooms that can connect into one adjoining suite (the Ida and Winifred rooms). Prior we stayed in Sheryls room. Cannot go wrong with any of these choices, just depends on what amenities you want. What can I say except that the inn is gorgeous as usual (decorated tastefully with Halloween theme at present). The creek and garden make for a perfect setting, and you can walk to town. The real standout continues to be Ruth the wonderful inn keeper. She is friendly,great to talk with,knowledgeable, and a fantastic cook! Since our daughter is a vegetarian she made a great meatless quiche as part of breakfast , along with real sausage, potatoes,sticky buns and spiced apples.We will defineately be back for another visit.

My parents had already been twice and told me I would love it. I was not disappointed. The house is gorgeous with a beautiful garden next to a charming creek. The hostess Ruth is what makes this place extra special. She is extremely friendly and fun to talk to. She even made a vegetarian quiche for breakfast which was appreciated as I don't eat meat. Can't wait to come back.

This was our third stay at the Deer Creek Inn. We love it here! The setting is delightful--the park like grounds, the creek that runs along the property, the gorgeous trees. The inn itself is a lovely Victorian home that has been beautifully furnished with attention to detail. The location is perfect as it is a short walk from great restaurants in downtown Nevada City.

The best part in returning to the Deer Creek Inn is seeing Ruth again and enjoying her amazing breakfasts. The menu has been different each time and each time it's been a hit! She serves a great combination of savory and sweet dishes that are sure to delight. I had to intentionally slow myself down so I could savor every bite of her scrumptious apple dumpling....mmmmm...my mouth waters now just thinking about it!

This inn is truly a gold nugget in the gold country of Nevada County!

This adorable little inn was a real treat. We loved our beautiful view of the creek below and awoke to a delicious breakfast every morning. Ruth "the inn keeper" was such a delight and an excellent cook!! This was our first experience at a b&b and we loved it!!

I love, love, love this inn. An old Victorian turned into a bed and breakfast. Sitting right on Deer Creek in Nevada City. The location is perfect. The place was immaculately maintained. The innkeeper was delightful, wine before our evening out and breakfast in the morning was a wonderful plus. I cannot overstate the condition and ambiance of this place. I would definitely go back.

We just returned from a two night stay at the Deer Creek Inn and wished we could have stayed longer. Comfy beds, private balcony overlooking the creek and great location to the town. We walked to town each night for dinner. Ruth provided great conversation and nightly happy hour with homemade snacks. Her breakfasts were excellent and we all left with a full stomach. Can't wait to return.
