“Coolest hotel in town”
Reviewed March 31, 2011

Great place, with the best people. If you want to know about what to do in town, or in the mountains that surround this town stay here. Bike trails, best places to swim in the rivers, they know it. Best restaurants, just ask them they know. It's one of a kind!

My boyfriend and I just recently moved to the area and as part of our date night we reserved a night at the Outside Inn. We had such a fun little staycation!!! Our room was so cute and perfectly sized for a couple. The weather was quite wet, however that did not put a damper on our night! We went to Lefty's for dinner and got dessert to-go from Mekka. The service and fare at both venues was superb. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Outside Inn and would readily recommend it to friends and family.

With adorable and uniquely decorated rooms this is a great place for a romantic and/or fun getaway. My husband and i stayed here for a night; it was clean, the bed was comfortable and the location is great-walking distance to downtown Nevada City. And the price is reasonable too.

I've stayed at the Outside Inn almost annually for the last 10 years. It's an excellent base camp for all the outdoor activities in the region and an easy walk to the charm of downtown Nevada City. The rooms are always consistently clean, thoughtfully decorated and furnished; staff is warm and accessible.

We had never stayed here before, but were told by the friends we were traveling with that it was a nice place, with nice staff. They were right. Our room was nice & clean, the staff was very friendly and location is great. Will definitely come back again.

What a wonderful stay we had.

Yes it is not pretentious like a bed and breakfast - a selling point for us.
Charming is the best word to describe the place.
Artistic touches on the whole property. We loved the magical blue fairy lights along the stream. The rain didn't allow us to enjoy any outside gathering - maybe next time.

With 5 of us in our party we had two rooms. The Paddler was good for gathering as it had a separate living room with a fold out sofa & a little kitchen area that was stocked with everything that we needed. The Outside In room was small with two twin beds but perfect for our needs.

The bathrooms were very modern & not too small.

Everything was immaculately clean.

The owner was very nice. Even though she was busy with lots to do she took the time for conversation with us about the area. They accommodated our need to check in an hour early.

We were in town for a wedding. It is a wonderful walk to the quaint historic downtown. Lots of unique little shops & eating establishments. There were lots of resources about recreational things to do in the area.

We want to stay longer next time.
