Nothing felt better then the pool at the Downieville River Inn after doing the Downieville Downhill bike run! Rebeccca and Eric were awesome! From having a wine and cheese tasting for my brothers birthday, to the homemade chocolate muffins in the morning, Rebecca went above and beyond the call to ensure that we had a special time with them. The...

We were re-visiting the Bay Area from Tampa and couldn't fly all that way without spending some time in Downieville where we frequently camped when we lived in California. The inn was a terrific place to stay! The rooms were very clean and cozy and the hosts were very welcoming. We enjoyed a beautiful swimming hole nearby where we spent...

We stayed 2 nights and had a wonderful time. The room was perfect for us with 2 Queen beds, very clean and pretty. I loved that we could walk anywhere - my husband and son fished under the bridge, my son and I waded in the river, and when it got very warm there was the swimming pool - warm...

We are long term regulars.The largest inn in town & the only one with a heated pool and sauna. The rooms are quaint with options for a full kitchen. You can rent just a room, add a kitchen, or add a second bedroom. It has a real dining room for guests to socialize & have breakfast (We enjoyed making our...

My family has visited Downieville for AGES. To start off, I have visited Downieville every year for my entire life, and I am 15. We started off staying at a place called the Lure, but there was a lice epidemic, so that was out. When I was about 5, we started staying here. It was the best place possible. We...

My husband and I were travelling through the Gold Country in California, enjoying the charming towns that enhance the beautiful Sierras. Downieville, we learned, could have been the capitol of California. I think it is a good idea that it came in second. Although our room at the River Inn was quite clean and had a lovely balcony overlooking the...

We stayed one night in June, weather was perfect, the river is beautiful and so peaceful. Our room was very attractively decorated, cozy and clean, with microwave and small fridge. We enjoyed our stay there very much, the owners were delightful and very helpful. Downieville is a great area for exploring on foot.

The Downieville River Inn and Resort is my kind of place: unpretentious, full of character, and surrounded by natural beauty. We were greeted in the parking lot by the manager, who made us feel right at home. He showed us our room, which I immediately loved. The place was built in the '30s, screen doors and porches. Drinking coffee, eating...

My family first stayed at the River Inn in August 2008, before the change in management, and I can honestly say that improvements have been made by the new management that have improved conditions at the River Inn. My family (2 adults and 3 teenagers) stayed for 5 days at the River Inn and did notice that our rooms were...

Actually, I would rate our overall experience something between "okay but some problems" and "terrible." It doesn't seem clean for one thing. As I lay on the bed, I looked up to see a family of spiders hanging above me. The beds are pretty uncomfortable. Downieville itself is quite the dump. Dogs barking all night, guys roaring through town in...

“We stayed in the big 3 bedroom suite, but it is really more suitable for a large group. It is like a large mountain cabin with a huge wood burning stove. We usually stay in 14, a nice family style 2 bedroom suite with living room and full kitchen. One bedroom has two queens. We can have our own bedroom and four kids can share the two queens. If they have friends, the floors are big enough for their friends to sleep on the floor. There is no charge for extra kids!”
