We enjoyed the family-like, friendly atmosphere. Both Ken and Eileen made you feel very at home. Winifred's Room had a nice balcony overlooking the back area and creek. Attention to detail and your comfort was very evident in the room's amenities. We enjoyed the wine-tasting at cocktail hour and especially enjoyed the 3-course breakfast. We will be returning on our next overnight stay in Nevada City.

When I was a youngster, one of my favorite summer trips was to Grandma's house. My grandparents catered to my every need (all of the time). Our visit to Deer Creek Inn was as close to that fond memory as any trip I've ever taken as an adult. The residence and grounds were outstanding, and the rooms well maintained and beautifully decorated. Our hosts (Ken and Eileen) were gracious and attentive; within an hour of our arrival, we felt like we had known them for years. The three course breakfasts were outstanding!! One evening we prepared dinner at the residence; Ken and Eileen made sure we had everything we needed (and even helped prepare some of the items). Prior to our departure for home, we were provided with a map and detailed description of a scenic road we could drive (to avoid the highway); the trip was spectacular! Overall, an extremely enjoyable visit. Although we'll soon move to another part of the country, we fully intend to visit Deer Creek Inn again.

if you want to have a relaxing stay in nevada city,stay at deer creek inn! i am a 24 hr caregiver for my son and i was only able to get away for a short period of time but my stay there was time very well spent. ken and eileen are absolutley great! wonderful personalitys!! there home is very comfortable and homey. they go out of their way to provide little extras like bottles of water on ice in your room on a hot summers day. also little treats in the room like homemade brownies and chocolate kisses. they even provide a cute little touch that makes me laugh when i think about it.... a little yellow rubber ducky for the tub l.o.l. they arranged massages for me and my daughter in law . it was great. they also can put together a picnic for you if you wish or they also can recommend the best places to eat and to shop. all you have to do is ask. their breakfast ,with champane i might add, was very tasty. and the best part besides their company is the beautiful property their inn sits on.it is so lush! and the creek, you could sit next to it and relax all day! but hey! you really need to see it yourself!..........betsy workman

No one will walk away from the fantastic 5 star 3 course breakfast hungry - it is a part of the stay at this sparkling clean and gorgeous victorian Inn next to a wonderful babbling creek. The Inn keepers become like one of the family before check out time and you will be making arrangements to stay again within hours of leaving. What a wonderful total package - no disapointments here!! Enjoy!

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!!
