Classic old hotel with a great bar and restaurant. Had breakfast out on their front patio. I stayed across the street in the old Supervisor's cottage. Mid-way between Plymouth & Sutter Creek, so location is perfect.

We had a charming brunch, the decor, food and service were impeccable and full of charecter. Though dining with kids – everyone found something they liked on the menu. Recommended for travelers who wish to immerse in the vibe of gold rush era towns.
