We stayed at the inn for a saturday night stay---went to dinner and to the off broadstreet theatre---all in walking distance--very friendly atmosphere, greeted at the door and got a special tour of the inn by the inn keeper, Ruth. The breakfast in the morning was delicious, and the scalloped potatoes with chorizo was amazing---lots of history here!!

Traveling to Nevada City to visit our daughters new hometown we found a charming town and awesome bed and breakfast here. Breakfast was a highlight each day. The Inn itself is perfectly kept and comfortable. Each of the rooms was a self contained suite and common areas of home were fully welcoming. The innkeepers hospitality was just right, very available...

As a Christmas gift my daughter wanted a "reading weekend." She'd spent her fall having chemo and chemo brain and was finally able to digest a good book again. I picked Deer Creek Inn Bread and Breakfast in Nevada City because it was far enough away from her young children but we didn't have to spend half the day driving....

We stayed over Valentine's Day weekend. The room was spacious, yet cozy and very clean. Ruth was very friendly and accommodating. She offered great advice, catered to our wants, on where to go and what to see. She was even courteous enough to inform me the weekend was busy for Nevada City, and strongly recommended I have dinner reservations for...

You will love the Inn! The location is really nice and the rooms are beautiful. Ruth is a great host and in the morning she cooked for us. We stayed there for one night only and we wished we could stay longer. Highly recommended!

We stayed here for two consecutive nights for our anniversary. The property is very comfortable and conveniently located within walking distance of the historic district. The breakfast was delicious and the service great! We hope to come back here in the future!

We enjoyed two comfortable nights and two delicious breakfasts at this Inn. Ruth even shares her recipes! We loved the historic home, its furnishings, and the beautiful grounds by the creek. We are not crazy about flavored coffee, and would have preferred a different option, but that is a minor criticism compared to all the amenities and charm this place...

Stayed here for 2 nights. Ruth (owner) prepared a very nice breakfast for the guests every morning. It wasn't the "usual" scrambled eggs and fruit that you get other places... it was what you'd expect from a 5-star B&B. At one time, Ruth had her own restaurant in Nevada City, and her cooking skills were evident in what she served...

We just spent two pleasant nights here. First time visitors. Occupancy was full both days, and we very much enjoyed the company of the other guests. This handsome and historic home is well appointed, with comfortable, quiet rooms. It's an old building, so expect some quirky features (like the original front door lock and key, and some bedroom windows that...

Beautiful victorian house, clean and comfortable. Our hostess Ruth was not overly friendly she hardly spoke to us at breakfast, the coffee we served ourself from the kitchen we only one choice hazelnut flavor no regular coffee. Our room had a balcony over looking the creek which was very nice, also we could walk to restraunts.

I do consider myself to be pretty friendly so I am not sure what may have been going on. Often if a couple is here alone I do give them their space. Regarding our coffee, it is brewed for us by a coffee roaster in Grass Valley, you are right it is not regular coffee. It is a dark french...
