“Delightful Deer Creek Inn!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2014

Loved our two night stay at this beautiful B&B - Ruth's fabulous breakfasts and delicious nibbles with wine in the evening were highlights to be sure, but we enjoyed the whole ambiance and welcoming feel of the house and its beautiful creekside location. It's a long way from England, but should we find ourselves again in Nevada City, we shall certainly stay at this wonderful place. And Ruth, you really MUST write that cookbook, and when you do, please let us know!

Room Tip: I'm sure they are all just perfect!

I spent the most relaxing, lovely weekend at Deer Creek Inn recently. I was running away from home, work, stress and wanted a quiet weekend. I thought I wanted to be alone all weekend, but what I didn't realize was how much I appreciated interacting with the wonderful guests at breakfast and again with a glass of wine in the evening. And the breakfasts were delicious! Ruth was gracious, knowledgeable about Nevada City and the surrounding area, fun to talk with and a fantastic chef.

I stayed in the Gigi room downstairs overlooking the creek and with its own entrance. Great views, comfortable bed, nice bathroom - what else could I ask for? It was quiet and peaceful. I did see most of the other rooms during my stay and they all have their own wonderful individual personalities. The Inn is a block from the beginning of Broad Street and an easy walk to and from the shopping and restaurants.

I had such a nice time, I made a pledge to myself to do this at least every six months.

Our stay was the best ever! Excellent breakfast by Ruth with early coffee or tea, clean, comfortable, beautifully appointed, nice wine social at 5:00 p.m., great view of the Creek, nice balcony, perfect location for walking to restaurants and historical area. Can't imagine anywhere better. Top notch all the way.

Room Tip: Sheryl's room was perfect for this couple

We are often in Nevada City but have never stayed at the Deer Creek Inn until recently. Now there is no other place I plan to stay. The rooms are immaculate, with great attention to detail. It's quiet, comfortable and beautifully decorated. The Victorian charm is carried throughout the house with the utmost detail and warmth. Ruth, our hostess, makes you feel like family. There is no better breakfast in all of Nevada City. She also greeted us with a glass of wine and appetizers after a busy afternoon of shopping and sightseeing. The inn is tucked away in a quiet neighborhood and only a short walk to anything in Nevada City making it a perfect place to stay.

In Nevada City for the "Victorian Christmas" in december for a weekend.. Deer Creek Inn is about the best b&b we've ever stayed in. Our room (Gigi) was downstairs with even an extra separate entrance. Room was spotless, everything worked, quiet even with a full house. Location can't be beat, literally a couple minutes from downtown. Ruth, resident manager, is a sweetheart, so nice, and a fantastic cook (b'fast is 9 sharp, be on time). We're usually pretty private, but the 5:00 wine "social" was fun, very nice group of people for social and for breakfast. Communications were easy (email), good wifi and cable tv if you want to use it. Ruth made excellent recommendations for restaurants (and warnings) and even made reservations on the busiest weekend of the year.

Room Tip: Stayed in Gigi, didn't see other rooms.

We had a wonderful experience at the Deer Creek Inn. It was our first time at a B & B and it could not have been better! The Inn is beautiful and decorated beautifully for Christmas. The location was perfect, just a few blocks from downtown. We can't say enough about the Inn's hostess, Ruth. She is very warm and makes you feel welcomed from the minute you walk through the door. Ruth tells you all about the history of the Inn. We woke up to the best breakfast we could have asked for! Our stay was the very best, and we will be coming back for sure!! I don't know if other B & B are as good as The Deer Creek Inn, but the standards are set very high after our experience there!!!! I would highly recommend the Deer Creek Inn!! Thank you for a delightful stay!!! This is as good as it gets for sure!!!

We had a great experiance in Nevada City, CA. this last weekend. Friends recommended Deer Creek Inn and they were right about the Inn and hostess Ruth. The home was built in 1860 and has been lovingly restored. Ruth sets a great table, wine and horsd'oeuvres in the evening and a great brekfast. You can walk a few blocks to old downtown Nevada City for fine dining.... Great outing, thanks Ruth.
