One of California's premier bed and breakfast Inns, the 1857 landmark brick mansion is the only authentically preserved Gothic Revival building in Nevada City's Historic District.

From the seclusion of its forested hillside the Inn affords unsurpassed views of the quaint goldrush community filled with antique shops, museums, theaters, restaurants, and historic buildings, yet is only footsteps away from the business district.

Winding footpaths lit by romantic fairy lights meander through one and a half acres of terraced rustic landscape dotted with fragrant English roses, fountain ponds, secluded nooks and koi water gardens, leading guests directly to the town below.

Within the four-story mansion, guests discover a true nineteenth-century "Tasteful Interlude" in Judge John Williams' original rooms and period settings surrounded by memorabilia of the life of a mine owner who, with his family, crossed the great plains in 1849.

You are invited to "dwell in the past" away from the distractions of the twenty-first century in rooms and suites dramatically furnished with impressive antiques. All the bathrooms have been rejuvenated with porcelain tile, marble thresholds, and wainscoting in the Victorian style to complement the authentic nineteenth-century wall-hung sinks and extra tall showers. Forest View has been enhanced by the addition of a clawfoot bedroom tub and hardwood floors under Oriental carpets. Red Castle 'time travelers' savor Victorian sensibilities and entertainments, sample the chef's own remarkable culinary delights served in a style reminiscent of the bountifully laden sideboards when dining was truly an event, and create their own memories to cherish.

Truly a special place for discerning travelers, the award-winning Red Castle Inn has been called "one of the most charming Inns in America" by McCalls Magazine, "a uniquely American architectural treasure" byCountry Living, while Gourmet Magazine says, "the Red Castle Inn would top my list of places to stay in the Gold Country, nothing else quite compares with it."

Alpine and Nordic skiing areas, as well as the three Forks of the scenic Yuba River, are a little more than 30 minutes away. A creekside picnic in a sylvan setting is available within a short walking distance.
