Deer Creek Inn
Ranked #1 of 6 Nevada City B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 2, 2008

This is our second time staying at Deer Creek Inn and we are so glad we came back. I've been in nursing school and needed a break and Nevada City is the first place we thought to go.

One of my favorite things about Deer Creek Inn is the water. The Inn is right next to a little river and their beautiful lawn area and gardens go right up to it. Very peaceful!!

Also, the Inn is in walking distance from town which has a couple of wineries, great shops, and our favorite restaurant (Citronee).

AND, of course the breakfast and hospitality at Deer Creek Inn were wonderful. We really enjoyed the wine reception in the evening as well. In response to a previous guest that said they could smell the dogs that lived there I can honestly say we would never have known they even had dogs if it had not been mentioned.

We love it there and we will definitely go back.

What an amazing place for a getaway! The rooms, service and hospitality are exceptional. Eileen & Ken are wonderful people and welcomed us like family upon our arrival. Local wines and great conversation started our visit off right. The breakfast was to die for, but the best part are the grounds. Deer creek is beautiful and the grassy area with scattered lounge chairs, benches and even a hammock make the perfect place to relax & unwind. And all this is just a short walk to great restaurants and wonderful shops. My only regret is that we did not stay longer!

My fiance and I needed a quiet get away. We retreated to Nevada City and stayed at the beautiful Deer Creek Inn. Ken and Eileen are the most kind and gracious hosts ever!! We were greeted w/a smile and they made or weekend even better than we had imagined. The breakfasts were scrumptious and the conversation was great.
We will be back soon!!

Simply beautiful. Wonderful couple catering to comfort. A fabulous choice in food. The lovely Eileen is an excellent chef. Check the gift shop for recipes. Very accommodating when it came to schedule conflicts for check in. Must see all the rooms and hear the history. Ask Host Ken for the story.

This was our third stay at the Deer Creek Inn. Our favorite room is "Ida's Room" because it feels very private from the rest of the house. We love to relax in the shady yard right next to the creek. Eileen and Ken go out of their way to make you feel welcome and there are lots of nice little extras (home baked cookies and brownies, chocolates scattered here and there, port wine to sip). The breakfast is fabulous. The view is stunning. If you like music, check out the bands at Cooper's, which is just a 10 minute walk away.

Our family spent a couple of nights at the Deer Creek Inn with Ken and Eileen and our wonderful memories abound and we have not yet stopped talking about how awesome our time was! Most importantly we must comment on the attention to detail that was given to every, single aspect of our visit. Most cherished has got to be the most comfortable "feel right at home" feel we had within a few short moments of stepping in the door. Wait - - this was truly, by far better than a "feel right at home feel" as we don't have a comfortable area set up with our port wine and chocolates to be enjoyed at our leisure . . . and we don't have our puzzles out being built inviting the next interested challenger (thank you Jenna!) . . . we certainly don't have our cookies and brownies available at our fingertips whenever we want them (not too mention our coffee, tea, hot chocolate . . . you name it!)! No, we don't even have our pre-dinner glass of wine and yummie appetizers awaiting us on our outdoor patio overlooking the creek in our back yard that we don't have! There's so much more but we don't want to ruin all the surprises for you! We'll guarantee you this: Ken and Eileen and there ever-so-sweet other family members are fun, interesting and entertaining! Along with that, you'll have a breakfast that you will never forget! Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy as much as we did (even more if that could be possible!). Thanks so much, from Dave, Janet, Hannah & Jenna!

Eileem amd Ken are the perfect hosts. You feel "at home" the moment you open the door. Every detail is taken into account, to make your stay a delight

Well be back over and over! Blessings, Joanne and Chuck
