We called on a last minute whim, and were delighted when Mike told us they had a vacancy. Their cottages are immaculate and well appointed. Our unit was perched a hundred feet and more above the Yuba River, with oaks and maples shading us from the heat of a summer day. A short jaunt down the path to the water...

We stayed in a cabin. It was clean and adorable. They have a beautiful patio that overlooks the river and has plenty of relaxing chairs and tables plus a barbecue. Even our cabin had a small private porch for outdoor eating and lounging. Close to forty different lakes all good for fishing, kayaking and hiking. Quiet, comfortable and with delightful...

When you wouldn't change a thing about your vacation experience. This review is long overdue - my husband & I and our friend were there in June 2012 I believe - but it bothered me to see the negative reviews. This place and Mike & Lindy are amazing!! Our first rainy, windy night (in cabin 5/6) which was chaotic because...

We stayed in #9, a lovely location at the back of the resort, that has a deck overlooking the North Yuba River. Buttes Resort offers basic cabin accommodations, but has all the things you need and more. In our cabin: TV, free wi-fi, and a small kitchen with fridge, microwave, coffee maker, utensils and plates, hairdryer. Bathroom has a small...

We have stayed in Sierra City since the 60's, first as campers, later as visitors in a private home. Since the early 2000's, we have stayed at the Buttes Resort. The place is owned by the nicest couple, and they do all the work themselves. The rooms are clean and comfortable, not at all shabby or run down. The rates...

Every June, 19 of us rent the cabins at the Buttes Resort. It doesn't matter who gets which cabin as they all are suited for our needs. I really like cabin 4 as the sound of the Yuba River is soothing. We all pot luck around the barbeque both nights. Mike and Lindy are such fun hosts. They work so...

I am so grateful for my friend, who recommended the Buttes Resort. Mike and Lindy make sure their guests have a quiet, clean, special place to escape to. The location is great! It sits right above the Yuba River and has access to numerous hiking trails as well as the cute little town of Graeagle. It is a great place...

My husband and I spent several happy days at the Buttes Resort. Mike is a terrific host (Lindy was away) -- very informative and friendly. We stayed in Room 12, which is fabulous -- it's large and beautifully appointed, with a deck overlooking the river that is just the spot for morning coffee and/or afternoon wine. Sierra City is a...

My family and I have been going up to the Buttes Resort for about five years. We rent six cabins and spend a week there every July. Mike and Lindy are great hosts and make our stay wonderful.
