“Best Thanksgiving ever”
Reviewed December 2, 2013 via mobile

We spent Thanksgiving with our family at the Emma Nevada house for 4 nights 5 days. We were given privacy yet never forgotten. Cozy evenings by the fire , reading, researching some family history, playing board games, or just sipping wine or coffee was great. If peaceful and relaxing vacations come in one package, this is it.

What an amazing Thanksgiving weekend we had with our family at the Emma Nevada House! This B&B was so comfortable that so we were able to relax and visit all day with family. The area is beautiful and the town just a few steps away so we were able to wander in and out at our leisure. Our hosts & innkeepers, Jim & Katherine Doolittle, were so friendly and created the most amazing breakfasts; four cheese souffles, blueberry pancakes, granola with yogurt, stuffed blueberry french toast, bacon and pom/cran juices!. Our daughter was a vegan and they graciously accommodated her with granola and oatmeal with all of the toppings for breakfast. I just can't say enough about them. I would go back in a heartbeat, they made our Thanksgiving/Family reunion so wonderful. Thank you!

This B & B is the finest I have ever stayed in. The couple who runs it, Katherine and Jim Doolittle, spare no expense to make you feel at home, and yet give you all the space you need to just enjoy this charmingly beautiful historic home and adorable small town.

All rooms have their own restroom. Mine was private, had its own fireplace, and an amazing bathroom with a large claw tub and beautiful shower.

The views from the back porch were lovely - and the breakfast served up was delicious!

I highly recommend this to anyone travelling to the beautiful foothills. Nevada City is so fun, with amazing restaurants, fun shopping and great music.

If you go - stay at teh Emma Nevada House - it's wonderful!

Celebrating our Anniversary at the Emma Nevada house my husband and I Fell in Love all over again. Not only were we warmly welcomed by the lovely couple Katherine and Jim with five star hospitality. We embraced smell of coffee in the morning and indulged ourselves with fresh fruit granola & yogurt, crispy bacon with the dreamy creamy Mendocino berry french toast breakfast. We are considering the possibility of making a career change of running our own B&B. The charming Emma's hideaway's history is etched in glass and has made a memory of a lifetime. Thank you for giving us that sparkle in our eyes again.

The Emma Nevada house is beautiful and our hosts were so helpful in recommending places to visit, shop and eat. The breakfast both days was absolutely delicious. Can't wait to return with my husband for a romantic get away, the bed was so comfy.

Spent one night only at the Emma Nevada house B & B but that was enough to make me want to come back. Hosts Katherine and Jim were so friendly and helpful and the decor and rooms were just what you'd expect for this sweet little town. Classic Victorian! Also loved the freshly made cookies.
Thanks!

After spending two nights in a mountain cabin, the luxuries of Emma Nevada House were perfect. The comfy bed and deeeeep tub were much appreciated. Thanks to Jim and Katherine for the perfect ending to a wonderful mountain weekend.
