We recently stayed here on a sightseeing trip through gold country. The tiny town of Volcano is slightly off the beaten path but worth it to spend the night here. Clean air and plenty of birds and frogs chirping away. We had a very spacious, modernly decorated room but our bathroom had a lovely deep clawfoot tub. Heaven right there! The rooms are above the restaurant & bar but things shut down fairly early so that wasn't a problem. We ate dinner here and were amazed by how good the food was. Yummy beers on tap too. We didn't have room for dessert, but asked if we might have it for breakfast. Not a problem. Breakfast was also entirely delightful and very generous..made to order. Coffee, teas, and snack are also at your disposal here as a guest. Our host, Traci, was welcoming and accommodating, also giving us tips on local things to do. Overall, a top notch stay.

- Welcome to the Volcano Union Inn!How The West Was Won Fun!Take the WILD RIDE to Volcano to enjoy great food, friendly faces and comfortable lodgingThe Union Inn Hotel was built in 1880 by four itinerate French Canadians for $400. It was a boarding house for hard-working miners and locals until the 1920's. It enjoyed a brief reawakening in the 1950's, and thereafter it was, by turns, vacant and empty, a private residence, and finally it was restored into a lovely destination in 2000 by the David/Burney Family.Now the Volcano Union Inn is reborn as a California Pub and Four-Room Bed and Breakfast in the picturesque village of Volcano, deep in the heart of Amador County and the California Gold Country. ... more less
