An amazing peaceful place to relax and getaway! We stayed in Cabin 9 and were mesmerized by the beauty of the forest and Yuba River from our windows. The Butte Resort keeps their cabins tidy and immaculately clean. Jim is easy going and attentive to detail. He is knowledgeable about Sierra City and the surroundings. We look forward to our...

I wish Trip Advisor would categorize this correctly. It's not a campground, it's a collection of one- and two-room cabins, most of them with kitchens. A great place to stay! The cabins are clean and well-stocked, the location is perfect for hiking and boating excursions in the Lakes District, and the innkeeper, Jim, is a gem. Don't overlook this place...

We were also stranded, caught between mudslides and an avalanche. We will always be grateful that Jim purchased the Butte Resort and choose to keep it open in the winter months. We were concerned that we would be sleeping in our car for a few days. Finding Buttes Resort was a god sent! Our cabin (#2) was so cozy with...

What could have been the worst couple days of our lives was turned into a great experience thanks to Jim and Buttes Resort. My group of five friends and I were headed home to Sacramento from Truckee during heavy snowfall and found ourselves trapped between mudslides and an avalanche in a small town named Sierra City. Our nerves were shot...

We just returned from a 5 day stay at the Buttes over New Years weekend. Jim, the owner, was again very helpful and accommodating. He had updated his website to let guests know in advance what was open and closed in the area during the winter and we planned ahead by taking plenty of food and drink with us. We...

It is a perfect location for staying before or after hiking any of the great hiking trails like the Sierra Buttes overlook. We were there in the off season so not a lot of open restaurants nearby. However the friendly and informative proprietor (Jim) advised us to bring food, BBQ and eat in as (I believe ) ALL UNITS have...

Nice, quiet, relaxing, beautiful. The owner, Jim, directed us to a couple of just right hikes. Clean, well maintained, nice common areas. Make sure a check out the user friendly and informative website.

This is a great place to explore an unexplored part of California. Very centrally located to great hiking and bird watching (Yuba Pass and Sierra Valley). We did the Round Lake and Sierra Buttes trail and both are excellent day hikes (get used to the altitude before doing the Buttes). The rooms are comfortable, beds good and Jim is a...
