Our stay here was the highlight of our first trip to gold country. The blend of original features (many 150 years old) and modern comforts is practically seamless. From Brian at the desk/bar to the owner, everyone was friendly and seemed genuinely interested in making sure the guests enjoyed every aspect of their stay. The dining room looked inviting enough enough but we almost passed on dinner there, since it was still empty by 6:30 on a Friday night. Glad we didn't; the food and service were excellent, and the place was jumping within an hour. The outdoor dining area is the more casual, fun and festive option; a little too dark, but at the first sign that anyone was struggling trying to read the menu, the waitress showed up with a flashlight. I recommend it highly.
