The Perfect Place to Lay Your Head
Deciding where to stay on your vacation is (no pressure) huge. We all have stories of the worst motel of our lives and we certainly don’t want to go there - ever again! Finding a place that really feels like “you” can make all the difference when you’re conjuring up a little vacation heaven. We’re certainly not all looking for the same experience or working with the same travel budget but the variety and range of styles in Nevada County lodging makes us confident that, with a little research, everyone can come away completely happy.
Do you love Broad Street in Nevada City? Then you get to choose from a range of nearby hotels, inns and B&Bs - there’s even the Broad Street Inn if you tend to get lost easily. Do you love to fish? How jealous will your fishing buddies be when you send them a postcard from The Lure Resort in Downieville? A serious bicyclist can stay awhile at Truckee’s Cedar House Sport Hotel and then ride on down to the Outside Inn in Nevada City. I did say serious. Ask if your barbershop quartet can get a discount at the Harmony Ridge Lodge (stranger things have happened on Harmony Ridge, I’m told). Not fond of cookie cutter hotels? Then consider staying somewhere unique, like Grass Valley’s Swan Levine House, a former small hospital that is now an art-centered bed and breakfast inn. If you want the atmosphere of a larger hotel with conference rooms, pool & Jacuzzi, fitness center, concierge service and continental breakfast, you’ll be right at home at a hotel like the Grass Valley Courtyard Suites.
So do some reading, make some calls, get some recommendations and then make yourself at home. And one last travel tip: regarding continental breakfasts, always ask in advance which continent is being represented- frankly, Antarctica is rarely very good.
