The Host was really nice really peaceful spot. The covered porch at night, stars beautiful pine tree smell all a plus. Walking distance to a historic bar. Columbia is a nice place to stay. I will stay there again in my travels. .........................

We were looking for a place for one night relatively close to the west entrance of Yosemite Park. Most places were either full or required a two night stay. Found this B&B on AAA guide. Called and talked to the owner (Samantha (Sam)) who said she had one room left -- The Wine Cellar. We arrived at The Harlan House...

We staid in the Rose room. It was so pretty with roses everywhere. It had its own fireplace as well. The entire house was lovely, very pretty. The shampoo and all in the bath smelled lovely. We were offered some wine in the evening, sat down on the porch. A friendly little dear came just outside the porch and said...

A quick trip for a cooking class at Yankee Hill Winery (reviewed that too) so we stayed close by at Harlan House. Truly, we could've walked both to Yankee Hill and the historic Columbia but drove instead since we didn't know how close it all is. Harlan House is clean and comfy (must haves in my book) and Sam couldn't...

Both my mother-in-law, my son and his girlfriend, and a friend from Japan all have stayed here last month! Every one loved it, the beds were comfy, the food delicious and the conversation with Sam, the hostess was really fun! We love the upstairs rooms which are all ensuite and decorated in antiques, great views. The deer come and socialize...

The owner, Samantha makes this place come together after twenty-four years of ownership. Her participation in making every guest feel welcome and comfortable add to the ambiance and warmth of the experience. There are some small inequities to overlook in the physical shape of the aging building, but they are minor in the total perception of your stay. Sam feeds...

B & B were just great. Sam has a special relationship with the local wildlife and lots of stories to share. We stayed one night in the wine cellar with private entrance! Walked to the nearby Columbia Historic State park!

What a KICK!!! This place may be old... but it sure has all the fun in staying in a gold mining town. "Sam" the keeper of this place, makes everyone special and is the real reason for staying here. Everything is very clean and my wife and I had a great time staying here. The B&B is right next to...

I stayed here while moving my daughter into the college and it was the perfect choice. I stayed in the cellar room and am so glad I did. After moving boxes all day and doing the shopping for her pantry, I was wiped out and the in room hot tub really hit the spot. Sam is the sweetest lady and...

The Harlan House in Columbia was great place for a two night stay for my mother and I. My mom wanted to see the old mining town and had never stayed in a bed and breakfast before. It was an easy drive back to Sonora and very quiet. A bit away from any busy roads. The Harlan House was decorated...
